Top secret election stunt
They just broke into the Macey's parade to let us know the popular wartime president is on his way home from a top secret election stunt to have dinner with the troops in Iraq. This has Karl Rove written all over it. Look at how many images they managed to combine in one stunt: thanking the troops for their sacrifice; on a semi-religious, semi-patriotic holiday; flying into a danger zone crawing with potential assassins, the plane's lights darkened; just Bush and a hand-picked cadre of a few hundred of his closest security people and pandering reporters.
Wow. As an American, I'm proud to foot the bill for this completely pointless election stunt.
