Bush Suffers Cuts, Bruises While Biking
FoxNews ^ | 5/22/04 | AP

Posted on 05/22/2004 4:46:12 PM PDT by wagglebee

CRAWFORD, Texas — President Bush (search) suffered cuts and bruises early Saturday afternoon when he fell while mountain biking on his ranch, White House spokesman Trent Duffy said.

Bush was on the 16th mile of a 17-mile ride when he fell, Duffy said. He was riding with a military aide, members of the Secret Service (search) and his personal physician, Dr. Richard Tubbs.

"He had minor abrasions and scratches on his chin, upper lip, nose, right hand and both knees," Duffy said. "Dr. Tubbs, who was with him, cleaned his scratches, said he was fine. The Secret Service offered to drive him back to the house. He declined and finished his ride."

A seventeen mile bike ride, as opposed to snowboarding down a hill.

Kerry would have demanded a PH.

It's pretty windy here in Central Texas today. Don't know if that might have been a factor but it could be.

Might have also been an Al Qaeda prairie dog...

Ok, let's see how the press handles this as opposed to Kerry's fall.

At the risk of getting lectured by those who get pissy because it reminds them of stupid soccer mom voters for Clinton, I bet he looks hot as usual. I can respect, admire and support the Prsident and still enjoy the fact that he is yummy....

"No one ever looks good in Biking short."

I think you mean....Not everyone can look good in biking shorts. It's my guess that Bush falls under the good catagory. He also looked good in that flight suit!

Guess I'm in good company. I fell off my son's skateboard about this time last week and racked myself pretty good. Can't do those tricks like I used to. My kids thought it was worthy of "funniest home videos." Nah. It's just one of those things. (Look for a seismic phenomenon on the Indiana record about this time last week.)

The arrticle mentioned Kerry's fall and not getting injured. He must have hit his head.

Maybe if Bush would own NOT ONE but TWO of those $7,000 apiece bicycles - as John Effin Kerry does - he wouldn't have taken a tumble /sarcasm............

I am not kidding about Kerry bikes - they cost around $7,000 each, and he owns two of them, they are "Serratos" or "Serranos" something like that......(not into pro biking, but I do ride my 20 year old Schwinn regularly!!

Well I'm no pro cyclist (just a Category 4/Masters, with a real job). There are two kinds of cyclists with $7000 bikes. The first are real pros, and the sponsors pay for the bikes. The second are posers. Kerry is a poser.

Bush was mountain biking, on mile 16 of 17. His doc said loose topsoil from recent rain is the likely cause. Kerry was riding in Concord, MA (yep, we're talking bike roads in a city) and fell when his bike "hit a patch of sand" LOL

That was the first thing I noticed....unlike his opposition he took full responsibility for the spill. It shows who has character...and who doesn't.

I'll say he's nice looking. Can't say ummy, since he's almost old enough to be my dad. Just like I could never say that Mel Gibson is sexy or Sean Connery... Ah! Sean Connery is still hot.

Kerry's $7000 were bought with ketchup money! He could hardly afford a car before he married Mrs. Heinz.

Gee, I've never fallen from a bike. (Except the time I hit the patch of ice, the time I tried to turn on the super-slick walkway, the time I forgot to loosen the toe-straps when I came to a stop -- even my dog laughed at that one.)
