In case you haven’t already heard, President Bush is in Iraq today for a surprise visit.
All I can say is: PLEASE BE SAFE, MR. PRESIDENT!
I know you spent your entire career in the national guard trying to avoid war zones like this. So, when in doubt, listen to your secret service agents and your military security personel.
No one back here in the States wants your helicoptor to be shot down or your motorcade to be attacked because NO ONE wants to deal with the aftermath of THAT disaster.
The crying and the speeches following Reagan’s death would be nothing compared to the ridiculous outpouring of emotion over the death of a sitting president. Even one with such very low poll numbers.
No one wants to see you become a martyr for such a stupid cause.
And NONE of us want to drive down George Bush Memorial Parkway or fly into George Bush Memorial airport or pay for things with memorial dollar coins bearing your likeness.
And above all else: NO ONE WANTS TO DEAL WITH PRESIDENT CHENEY.
So, I will repeat my plea: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE MR. PRESIDENT- BE SAFE!
