Not bike related but I got to meet President Bush! PICS!!!!

As the title states I thought I would share a few pics! I was picked for the presidential support team this time at work and Bush came on the 31st. Here are some of the pics I took! Enjoy!

The President and First Lady exiting Air Force One



Former President George Bush and wife Barbra




Just a cool Pic



Me with Air Force One


I will also be supporting when he leaves on the today so I hope to get more pics! Just thought I would share!

Got to meet President Bush and shake his hand!





We look like best buds!


Truely an awesome way to start the new year!

WARNING: Do no make this thread get moved to P&R. I will do it, and I'm sure the OP would not appriciate it, but I will not have politically charged threads to continue outside of that area.

first congrats OP, very cool to have such a candid picture of the President.

meeting the POTUS...whoever it may be is an awesome deal indeed.

I remeber my HS band was going to play for President Bush...a very nice honor indeed. quite a few parents complained and the band didn't get to play...ruined it for everyone.

btw the OP never said he works for the President.

OP what is your job though?

I wasn't thrilled that he is moving to Dallas.....then again...he DOES enjoy cycling...maybe he'll push for more cycling friendly infrastructure here.

Yea, but I hear he's a one of those baggy shorts wearing MTB guys Maybe we can swing him to the Roadie side.

Imagine if he commuted. Who here wouldn't take a motorized escort through the streets and having traffic blocked off at every intersection during rush hour.

Let's keep it on track as much as possible, all right?

If you want to talk politics, P & R can be found at the bottom of the home page. Send your requests to Tom Stormcrowe if you want to join in on the fun.

Thanks!
