PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: President and Mrs. Bush arrived in Bogota, Columbia today. His visit is a show of support for the Columbia, which is a staunch ally of the United States. The following AP/USA Today piece summarizes the visit.

Bush pays brief call on Colombia
Updated 41 mins. ago

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — President Bush renewed U.S. support to Colombia, a strong but drug and violence-plagued U.S. ally which receives more U.S. aid than any country outside the Middle East and Afghanistan. Bush arrived in the nation's capital on Sunday to meet with President Alvaro Uribe in a show of confidence for Uribe and Colombia's battle against narcoterrorists. But the stop was clouded by a political scandal involving Uribe, and security jitters had Bush staying only about six hours.

Colombia was the third country on the president's five-nation tour of Latin America. He began his journey in Brazil, flew here from Uruguay and was headed later Sunday to Guatemala. Bush last stops in Mexico before returning to Washington Wednesday.

It was Bogota's first visit from a sitting president since Ronald Reagan in 1982. Some 20,000 police and heavily armed troops will virtually shut off downtown Bogota to guard against a possible rebel attack.

PRESIDENTIAL SCHEDULE:

— Mar. 14, President and Mrs. Bush arrive back in Washington from their trip to South America and Mexico.

— Mar. 15, House GOP Leader John Boehner (R-OH) chairs the NRCC March Dinner at the Washington Hilton Hotel, headlined by President Bush.

— Mar. 16, Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern will meet in the White House with President Bush to discuss bilateral issues and Northern Ireland, and to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with their annual "Shamrock Ceremony."

Colombian President Alvaro Uribe shares a joke with US President George W. Bush (L) during a welcome ceremony. GWB visited Colombia Sunday in a show of support for the conflict-torn US ally.

Colombia's President Alvaro Uribe walking with President Bush during the welcoming ceremony. In the background, not taking his eyes of GWB, is the President's lead Secret Service agent. (Notice during this trip we haven't seen any attempt to keep him away from the President's side like what happened in Chile.)

LOL! I buy The Globe and The Examiner and The National Enquirer because I find it a lot of fun to read them. (No one has ever accused me of being sane!)

In the latest Globe, Laura gets a ginormous house, a full staff and lots and lots of money from the divorce when they leave the WH. AND, they won't mention that there's any trouble and have told everybody they know not to discuss it. How conveeeenient!
