President Bush is eating in my undisclosed location (UPDATE: Undisclosed location is IRAQ!)
Eyes on ^ | 271830(C)NOV03 | ChiefKujo

Posted on 11/27/2003 7:37:26 AM PST by ChiefKujo

President Bush secretly landed an hour ago and is currently eating Thanksgiving dinner at my undisclosed location. Anticipate a press release after he takes off.

Here's some more gravy. I expect more than physical courage out of the man on the border invasion problem. Photo ops like this are morale-building but getting it done defending the home front takes precedence.

Thank you, Service people, for being there.

Chief, Miss Marple and I will be serving crow to those who tried to insult you.

Some will get crow tartar and some will get week old road kill crow.

It is amazing how negative a certain group is to any news.

Again we had the news first on Free Republic.

Kudos Kujo!

It's not so much the DUers I'd be worried about. I'd be far more concerned about the Asan Akbar (sp?) types.

In any case, I agree that it's a good thing the Prez was traveling with protection, even if they could have done a better job of blending in...

Yup, which is why I quickly turned back to Fox. They are all excited and beaming about it there...

Fox was definitely the best, but CNN couldn't help but report the greatness of this event either, and ABC also broke into the network for a special report. Speaking in purely PR terms, this was a grand slam home run for Team Bush.

Hill has to rewrite that poison speech of hers, badmouthing the president on Iraq and for not making any sacrifices like the troops who're putting their lives on the line.

Just one more thing to be thankful for.

US President George W. Bush speaks to US troops at Baghdad Airport during a surprise Thanksgiving Day visit. Bush made the Thanksgiving visit to troops in Baghdad under the greatest secrecy and security.

On the table was a free-range DNC turkey, Clinton cornbread dressing, Geraldo sweet potatoes, Mc Cauliffe mashed potatoes, asparagus and a salad of Texas grapefruit, toasted walnuts and greens all marinated in a Dashle-Kennedy sauce.

FANTASTIC!!! Thank you Chief!

This is a real morale-booster for the troops! To know the CIC is willing to put his own hide into the combat zone. The cover story of being in Texas was perfect. I hope he is already out of the theater though. No need for Saddam/Osama to have another crack at the Bushes.

You've taken me aback with that thought!
I think we've held up pretty well.

The class of '98 was more generalist than '97, but more focussed on governance and media than the following classes.

Time does goes on for everyone. I don't reply much except on a couple of my hot-button topics, but I still read FR pretty much twice every day.

Well, I hope our troops in Afghanistan and everywhere else around the world and here at home realize that while they may not have gotten a visit from Bush, he appreciates each and every one of them and his message was for all of them.

"Today, Americans are gathering with their loved ones to give thanks for the many blessings in our lives. And this year we are especially thankful for the courage and the sacrifice of those who defend us, the men and women of the United States military.

I bring a message on behalf of America: We thank you for your service, we're proud of you, and America stands solidly behind you. Together, you and I have taken an oath to defend our country. You're honoring that oath. The United States military is doing a fantastic job."

That brings up a contrast between W and Bubba/Hillary: W was talking, laughing, joking, shaking hands with EVERYONE. Bubbillary would only choose people on the basis of sex/race/ethnicity. Then, Bubba would shed the obligatory tear, bite his lip, and talk about how he worked harder than he has ever worked in his life, to make it there to see them. Hillary would use the opportunity to spread doom and gloom, call for a more socialist America, and make it non-stop "vote for me."

This was on another thread......gives you chills.

Finally, a visibly nervous U.S. administrator L. Paul Bremer III strode to the podium with Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, the U.S. military commander in Iraq. The two dispensed a few quick words. Bremer then turned to Sanchez and said he had a Thanksgiving message from U.S. President George W. Bush. Bremer said the most "senior" U.S. official among them should be the one to read it.

Turning toward the stage backdrop, Bremer asked: "Is there anyone back there who's more senior than us?" Bremer's hands, cradling the president's speech, quavered.

At that moment, Bush strode forth from the wings in an Army track suit emblazoned with a 1st Armored Division patch. The bored crowd shot immediately from their seats and whooped. As he surveyed the crowd, a tear dripped to the president's cheek.

"I was just looking for a warm meal somewhere," Bush said, to another whoop. "Thanks for inviting me to dinner."
