WASHINGTON (AP) – Playing to his strength, President Bush is campaigning in the small-town Republican heart of Pennsylvania, trying to win a state that Democratic presidential candidates have captured in each of the last three elections.
Bush is taking a bus tour in a battleground state that has drawn more personal attention from the president than any other. He has averaged a trip a month to Pennsylvania this year and Friday’s visit was to be the 30th of his presidency to the state.
Isn’t this guy s’posed to be fighting a war? Isn’t he a “war time president?” Oh, silly me - Cheney’s still in D.C. no doubt.
When asked about his copious vacation time in Texas, Bush responded that phones and faxes worked “really well for keeping in touch” , so no doubt he can use that excuse while he’s on the campaign trail. But his performance on 9/11/01 belies his ability to do so - while safely ensconced in one of the most sophisticated communications platforms in the world (Air Force 1), Bush let Cheney run the show presumably because he was “there”.
