Dear Iran, Don't Make Me Come Over There, Signed GWB 2.0

Ummm...I thought the Secret Service was supposed to protect the President, not the other way around.
SANTIAGO, Chile - President Bush stepped into the middle of a confrontation and pulled his lead Secret Service agent away from Chilean security officials who barred his bodyguards from entering an elegant dinner for 21 world leaders Saturday night.

Several Chilean and American agents got into a pushing and shoving match outside the cultural center where the dinner was held. The incident happened after Bush and his wife, Laura, had just posed for pictures on a red carpet with the host of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Chilean President Ricardo Lagos and his wife, Luisa Duran.


As Bush stepped inside, Chilean agents closed ranks at the door, blocking the president's agents from following. Stopping for more pictures, Bush noticed the fracas and turned back. He reached through the dispute and pulled his agent from the scrum and into the building.

The president, looking irritated, straightened his shirt cuffs as he went into the dinner.
And I'm sure once he got into that dinner the other world leaders were much more compliant. I mean would you want to try and say "no" to a guy that breaks up a scuffle between two security services?

"Yes, Mr. Bush. Whatever you say Mr. Bush."

This explains why the military invaded Iraq. Bush was obviously annoyed with Saddam, and hey who wouldn't be, but he's the President so he's too busy to go over there and kick Hussein's @$$ himself so Bush says to Rumsfeld, "Hey Rummy, take care of my light work." But Rumsfeld is no Bush, so 19 months later here we are.

This should also put that whole Texas Air National Guard nonsense to rest. It's hard to call President Bush a draft-dodger and a chicken-hawk if he'll personally wade into danger even though he's the one who is supposed to be privelged and protected.

Of course I feel sorry for the Secret Service agent who was "rescued." You just know the other agents are going to tease him about this.
