Wasn’t Pres. Bush in Mobile?


The PNJ has completely ignored GW Bush’s visit to Mobile yesterday. There isn’t even a mention in Newsy Neighbors. Pensacola is Bush Country. When the president comes to town, we pack the Pensacola Civic Center. Mobile is an hour’s drive away.

What bumped Pres. Bush from the front page? A feature on video game addiction….Sad.

Here is what the Mobile Press Register reported:

President Bush repeated common themes of his presidency at a fundraiser in Mobile on Thursday, saying the United States must stay in Iraq, the government must cut taxes and Republicans like Jeff Sessions must stay in the U.S. Senate.

“We are facing ideologues with a vision of how they want the world to look,” Bush told a crowd of about 850 people at the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center. “They can’t stand freedom. They can’t stand the idea of people expressing their vision in the public square.”
