The mysterious bulge on President Bush's back during the first presidential debate was not an electronic device feeding him answers, but a strap holding a bulletproof vest.
Bush's team did not want to admit he was wearing a vest for fear of disclosing information that related to his personal security while he was campaigning across the country.

We called it here first, folks... Although W's claim that it was a poorly tailored suit WAS kind of lame.
Many FReepers postulated that, even though the White House denied he was wearing one. (I'll bet Kerry had one, too.)
Hey, should we really be talking about the President's secret bulge?
Better than talking about his predecessor's bulge.
I see. So now that he has won, they feel he is in less danger and are willing to reveal this?
We sure did, I showed the pic to my son, in his job, he would know & he said that is what it was!
And here I thought he'd just been working out.
" I see. So now that he has won, they feel he is in less danger and are willing to reveal this?"
He's not on the campaign trail every day anymore. The President will not appear in public nearly so often now that he can concentrate fully on his job, instead of fighting to keep it. While the danger is still there, the opportunity is greatly diminished.
Our President declared a challenge 3 years ago and it is time to issue it again.
Either you are with us or you are against us! Hey, media - Do you hear me! Because I hear you!!! For 4 years I have been listening to you! Now you listen to me!!!
yup, i think the bulge matches the navy seal combat vest. it has a similar U-shape on the upper part of the back.
SECRET OF BUSH'S 'BULGE'
Everything is big in Texas
I didn't realize it was a secret- he's been wearing a vest when he's been in public for quite a long time before this campaign season.
Like this was a big secret in the first place. OF COURSE the President wears body armor in public.
Not that it helps very much: the last two President's that were killed died of head wounds.
That explanation won't satisfy the kool-aid coalition. They insist he was wired.
That was what I believed it was when it first came up. I'm not trying to say I known it all but it made a lot of sense.
I know what the bulge is, its called a spine!!! Something that skerry lacks.
In the last days of the campaign there was a photo of Bush walking up the stairs to Air Force One. His back was wet with sweat and I noticed that there was a similar crease line on his shirt across his back that there had been during the debate.
That's also why he read to the kids on 9/11. They had to secure the building and his exit.
Heh...heh...heh... The original is lost in the Freeper archives.
Although your statement is correct, it is also somewhat offset by the level of anger and hate that appears to have ratcheted up another notch after this victory.
Word is the bulletproof vest bulge was to prevent Arlen Specter from stabbing President Bush in the back.
I can't even believe anyone would say it was a device feeding him answers lol. If it were, they sure were not the best answers. As we all remember, he did the best during the 2nd and 3rd debates, not the first one.
