Notes from a Presidential Visit.. Cleveland

So President Bush is in town for a visit today. My lovely wife was taking our future son in law to the airport where he's flying to San Antonio for two fun-filled months of Air Force Basic training. All exits had local police stationed, and they closed the airport just as she arrived (and AF1 arrived shortly after that). Her comment- "That is one big plane."

Saw this local article:[blog.cleveland.com]

Bush: "Buy some sandwiches."
Posted by Mark Naymik and Stephen Koff July 10, 2007 11:35AM

President Clinton tried pierogies when he visited Cleveland. President Bush, however, took in a different Cleveland specialty: corned beef sandwiches.

Bush and those in his motorcade ducked in Slyman's, at St. Clair Ave. and 31st Street, a few minutes ago. He ordered and then joined the lunchtime crowd, stopping to sit down at one table in particular. This, however, was not just an everyday diner crowd.

I've eaten their sandwiches. They are basically a heart attack on a plate. Good thing he's going to the Cleveland Clinic next...

Bush performs brain surgery

"
President Bush made a 20-minute stop at the Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Center, where he performed a simulated brain surgery.

Standing before a rubber replica of a human brain, the president moved a hand-control that helps teach doctors how to implant deep brain stimulation devices. He did so under the watchful eye of neurosurgeon Ali Rezay."

I guess he met his match.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

What I object to is that he thinks visiting that city somehow gives him license to use the "I just flew in from Cleveland, and boy are my arms tired" line to start his press conference this morning. It's just not Presidential.
