Why hasn’t this 3/11/2004 story in the NY Newsday seen more publicity? The state park employees at Eisenhower Park in Nassau County were instructed that “Bush’s feet were not to touch ground”:http://www.nynewsday.com/news/local/newyork/columnists/ny-nybres113703317mar11,0,1118887.column?coll when he visited for a 9/11 memorial ground-breaking ceremony. Is it just non-Texas ground his feet can’t touch? They have to touch the ground when he’s “working” on his ranch, right? Maybe it’s some kind of secret cabal curse for powerful Southern politicians?


bq. Yesterday, a big guy, who had been fixing serious pipe leaks in the county executive’s building, was on the walkway unrolling wooden storm fencing that would create an alley for Bush to walk down.

bq. “When you get the fence up, what do you do?” he was asked.

bq. “Cover the ground so his feet don’t touch it.”

bq. “Is that true?”

bq. “My boss told me that. If he says so, it’s true.”

bq. “That sounds crazy.”

bq. “It sounds like I get paid every week,” he said.

Breslin based his whole article on one guy unrolling fences?

C’mon, johno, you can do better than this…

BTW – if GWB were holy, he wouldn’t need fences to walk upon. He’d just kind of float above the earth…

I’m with jank in not seeing the issue. If it is true, it was probably because he was going to another event immediately after and they didn’t want him to muck up the place.

Wasn’t there a book or a movie where the lead character hovered slightly above the ground? (I mean, besides Jesus walking on the waters).

The problem in my mind with a story like this is that it’s kind of pointless. There are plenty of valid, serious criticisms of this administration. We don’t need a he-doesn’t-want-muddy-shoes when we have Valerie Plame and Richard Clarke.

I just see it as one more stick on the fire. Seriously, how many tax dollars do we need to spend to keep the president from having muddy shoes? If Guilani can bring an extra pair of shoes and slacks, why can’t W?

The W supporters want to build an image of the POTUS as everyday man, but stories like this indicate that it’s not true.

As compared to that other man of the people?

“Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry. Hairstyle by Christophe’s: $75. Designer shirts: $250. Forty-two-foot luxury yacht: $1 million. Four lavish mansions and beachfront estate: Over $30 million. … Another rich, liberal elitist from Massachusetts who claims he’s a man of the people. Priceless.”

What is it that makes rich liberal politicians “elitist” while rich conservative politicians are “populist”? Is it the accents?

“Elitist” politicians leave their girlfriends in the backseat of sinking cars; “Populist” ones drive them to clinics.

(That may be the most evil thing I’ve written yet)
