Comments: Dubya....

I've never seen a Pres in person. Very cool.

Oh, wait! When Clinton was President, he spoke about three hundred yards from Da Post. We all stood outside after his speech (no one attended the speech), knowing that his fleet of cars would have to pass the entrance to the Post to get to the highway. We all patiently waited so that we could turn our backs on him as he rode by. I doubt he noticed, but we all felt better.

Oh, man....I'm weak....I so *love* Dubya.

Dubya, can you hear me?: I love you, man!

"he’d just finished having a vigorous lunch at Porker’s BBQ…."

I dunno...this doesn't sound kosher.

Good thing you weren't strapped at the time, Buddy-Boy. Them Secret Service Shamuses don't cotton to weaponry in the hands of the Adoring Masses - even with Marine credentials - when Mistuh POTUS is in towwin.

I saw Reagan when he was stumping for his first presidency. You were probably 3. Heh. And I saw Johnson lying in State. You weren't born yet. :)

It's cool to see a President, alive or dead, although saying you saw one lying in state is kinda cool. I'm glad my folks took the time for us to pay respects to the office... as we surely weren't respecting the man. Johnson was a crook. Blech.

Here I thought our good ole President was a god-fearing Christian?

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, not suppose to eat meat on AW.

He is going to hell for sure now.

Health care and BBQ in the same day - I do love that man... :-)

Now it really does come down to how good the BBQ is at the place he ate..
I've eaten at some popular places frequented by politicians and I swear the food ain't fit to eat.
Of course if you endorse the place Eric, I'll have to put it on my list to try.
OTOH, there is a place in Toccoa, GA called the Barbeque Shack, which I have never eaten pig anywhere that I thought could hold a candle to.
Now I do admire ol' Dubya, but much can be told about a man by the quality of BBQ he will tolerate.

Chimpy McHilterburton! Cool!

I've seen a few. LBJ as ex-pres (Apollo 11 launch), Nixon as pres, Carter as ex-pres, Reagan running for pres (1976), GHW Bush as pres, Clinton running for pres, W both running for pres and running for reelection.

I also thought I saw Eisenhower when I was 10, but it was just a dustbunny under my bed.

Have seen all the presidents since Harry Truman on his whistelstop tour of 1948. I have appreciated far fewer than that though. Once you get past HST, Ike, Ford, Reagan, Bush and Bush, the rest can .......
