NAMPA, Idaho (Rotters) – President George W. Bush ostensibly was speaking in Nampa, Idaho today to a gathering of the Idaho National Guard and other military personnel. “So long as I’m the president, we will stay, we will fight, and we will win the war on terror,” Bush said.
Many, however, noted that this was a more younger in appearance, noticeably relaxed George Bush. Some even hinted that there was a trace of a subtle European accent to his speaking voice today.

Bush was noted to embrace and kiss full on the lips a number of grieving widows as well today. “He’s doing the right thing,” one was quoted as saying of the president.
When asked to comment, White house Spokesperson Trent Duffy stated, “That is patently absurd, and the worst form of political partisanship to insinuate that the president was not here today. Of course he looks young, of course he looks rested, he’s on vacation. In many cultures, a kiss on the lips to a grieving widow is expected. Put away the tin foil, folks!”
In a somewhat related incident, Cindy Sheehan today departed from California and headed back to Camp Casey, where she has been holding vigil with others outside the President’s home in Crawford Texas.
A trickling of counter protesters was noted to appear today at Prairie Chapel Road, and the new location of the camp which has been moved closer to the Bush ranch.

While some tempers have flared, law enforcement stated that over-all the counter protesters have remained civil.
A spokesman for Camp Casey stated that the counter-protesters appeared woefully unorganized and without leadership, “They’re pretty wimpy, but they seem to be getting increasingly crude.”

White House representatives stated that Cindy Sheehan’s goal of meeting with the President was becoming increasingly unlikely secondary to the potential volatility between the two sides.
