At about 3:30 today I was rushing to a listing appointment on Memorial Drive headed east toward downtown starting at Memorial Park.
When I got to the bridge-overpass at Shepherd and Memorial, there were cops stopping traffic both ways. I was the second car stopped and then a huge line of cars were stopped behind me. I asked a cop what was going on and I was very surprised when he told me that George Bush (yes, the POTUS) was coming south on Shepherd and for security they were blocking Memorial Dr. which runs under a bridge at that intersection.
Well, the whole Kahuna came! First about 8 motorcycle cops. Then about 10 police cars. Then about 4 limos. I thought I recognized GWB in the middle Limo, but I couldn't be sure. I know he was in one of the limos. Then came about 4 more cop cars and amazingly, what looked like a s swat bomb vehicle and an ambulance. I guess the SS takes their job very seriously.
The wait was about 1/2 hour and I missed my appointment. Another reason to despise the SOB. I truly believes that he is in a fantasy world, and he believes that Condi is a typical black woman, and Dick Cheney is an average working Joe!. And of course he'll readily swear that the economy is fine! I truly think that this Nimrod is living in a fantasy-land cocoon.
It breaks my heart, but I'm considering Obama as POTUS. I'm not fooling myself, and I look for Barack to be another Jimmy Carter. But he is the natural progression and repudiation that GWB has so rightfully earned.
