Bush attends Little League championship

WACO, Texas - President Bush relived some of his childhood Saturday night when he attended a Little League playoff game near his ranch.

The world's most powerful former Little Leaguer watched several innings while players from Bryant, Ark., and Lafayette, La., competed for the southwestern regional championship.

Bush welcomed the players, coaches and families to Texas from the pitcher's mound. He then threw out the ceremonial first pitch and watched from behind home plate with the first lady and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

"Play hard, play fair, play to win," he said. "God bless you all and may God continue to bless our great country."

Bush is the first former Little League player to be elected president, having played as a kid for the Cubs of Midland, Texas, said the league's CEO and president Steve Keener.

Bush attended the Little League World Series in 2001 and hosts T-ball games each summer on the White House lawn. Keener said he is the first president to attend one of the league's regional championships.

The game was being played just about 20 miles from the ranch where Bush is spending the month of August. Bush traveled to the game by helicopter, missing the throng of anti-war protesters gathered on the country road leading to his ranch.

The demonstrations began a week ago when California mom Cindy Sheehan came demanding to personally ask Bush about why her son had to die last year while fighting for the Army in Iraq.

More than 350 anti-war demonstrators rallied at a park in nearby Crawford Saturday in support of Sheehan, then traveled several miles out to her roadside campsite.

About a dozen Bush supporters stood across the street, kept apart from the anti-war group by sheriff's deputies and Secret Service agents.

Is he for real?

Bush is non-human and so are those things he hangs out with called his associates---Rice, Rumsfeld, Cheney, etc.

Leishmaniasis (LEESH-mah-NYE-uh-sis) is spread through the bite of infected sand flies, which feed on human blood. Although not a threat in the United States, the disease is much more common in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the 660 reported cases represent the largest epidemic for the military since World War II. U.S. troops have nicknamed it the "Baghdad Boil."

Was the little league baseball game El Presidente attended sponsered by the American Legion, those stalwarts of Real Amerikanism, by any chance? I wonder, too, what security measures were taken to protect the president from small boys with bats? Finally, how could those children play ball with all that Homeland Security?

Who won anyway? As if it matters-Karl Rove probably had the result rigged long before Bush even got there.

This little league game the President attended, was it sponsered by the American Legion, that bastion of Real Amerikanism, by any chance? What security measures had to be taken to protect Mr. Bush from little boys with bats? And how in the world did those children ever play baseball with all that Homeland Security?

By the way, who won? Never mind, Rove had the results fixed long before G.W. got there anyway.

Not to sound bitchy (ha-ha) but does he realize what it is costing the tax-payers for that helicopter?

If he wasn't the coward he is he could take his pick-up truck and drive past Cindy.

He's a coward and once again he sticks it to the taxpayers.

When are people going to get fed up enough with him that they start demanding he play fair?

I am willing to give Bush a one-way ticket to Iraq. He can ask the people there how much they like his style of "democracy"? Maybe that should the question. The country of Iraq does not belong to America. It belongs to Iraqis. All Bush is trying to do is set up another puppet regime like Saddam was. He fell out of favor with the Bush crime family and now he is gone. When will Americans unite against this war criminal? Maybe when our soldiers begin to suffer the effects of DU -- cancers, birth defects, slow and painful death. Then maybe people will say, "Was it for freedom?"

just keep plugging cindy sheehan's name in your search emgines for all the main media web pages, cnn, nytimes, washington post, fox, la times, etc. you get the message and they, media, will,too

"But whether it be here or in Washington or anywhere else, there’s somebody who has got something to say to the president, that’s part of the job," Bush said on the ranch. "And I think it’s important for me to be thoughtful and sensitive to those who have got something to say."

"But," he added, "I think it’s also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life."

"I think the people want the president to be in a position to make good, crisp decisions and to stay healthy," he said when asked about bike riding while a grieving mom wanted to speak with him. "And part of my being is to be outside exercising."

Is this a real quote or a spoof job. It's hard to tell, since it works quite well both ways.

I don't see why the President
should not meet with her.I do
think it would be a good thing
to do although I'd advise him
to have adequate Secret Service
protection.I would never advise
him to meet with ANYONE without
taking precautions,but I don't
see what harm it would do to
talk to the lady.
