ARR: The Bush wipeout due to recent rain - LIE.
Good Lawd, can't they tell the truth about anything? If they lie about something innocuous as a bike spill, what can they be trusted on for telling the truth when it really counts?

BTW, they mentioned the mouthpiece. I wonder if that was a slip of the tongue (so to speak)? I've heard about the 2X a day pills he takes. I am wondering if maybe he uses the mouthpiece as protection from biting his tongue if he should go into a siezure? That would probably explain the pretzel incident as well. I also wonder if the jogging was discontinued because the pounding might have triggered seizures?

If so, this should not be hidden from the public. We should know if this man has a medical condition that could be affect his duties as pResident.

1. By law they have to disclose any health conditions.
Not that the law means anything to them.

2. strange that a spill from
a bike that was on "soft dirt" would cause so much damage. seems like those injuries were caused by a fall of some kind on a hard surface. i have also looked into his facial expressions-lips and other tics- and found they can be caused by brain problems..

5. I've never heard of anyone wearing a mouthpiece to bicycle.
Hockey, yes. Football, yes. Biking, no.

There's more to this than meets the eye.

9. Our....................
"short bus President" should be required to wear a mouthpiece and helmet at all times. I'm not taking a swipe at the mentally disabled here, but it is for his own safety.

15. I think they said "mouthguard"
Edited on Tue May-25-04 02:36 PM by depakote_kid
which you'll find on downhill helmets. Downhillers are a special breed, though- screaming along at high speeds, so a lot of their gear resembles what motocrossers wear.

In all my years of mountain biking, I've never seen a full helmet like that on anyone doing a cross country ride like the ones you'd find in that part of Texas. They're just too hot and unwieldly. Also, the wounds on his hands suggest that he was wearing light gloves (if at all) so the combination wouldn't make sense.

The bottom line is that the administration is simply stock full of pathological liars, who pretty much lie about anything. And really, why shouldn't they? They never seem to suffer any consequences for it.

3. Devil's advocate...
Isn't Bush's "ranch" 20 miles outside of Crawford so the ranch could have gotten a t-storm and Crawford didn't?

7. Why the hell would he lie about falling off a bicycle?
I mean it happens. I'll bet Lance Armstrong has fallen a few times. C'mon bush, don't lie, people in all likelihood don't really care if you fell off your bike. Sheesh! The man has to be a pathological liar to lie about this!

8. I've messed myself up pretty good falling from a bike
landing on gravel is worse than landing on a rock.

But with Bush I assume everything they say is a lie.

10. the funniest part was
what his "spokesman" said:

Bush was wearing his bike helmet and a mouth guard when the mishap occurred. Duffy said he didnt know exactly how the accident happened.

Its been raining a lot and the topsoil is loose, the spokesman said. You know this president. He likes to go all out. Suffice it to say he wasnt whistling show tunes.

12. I take it that "whistling show tunes" is White House code for "pansy"
Yeah, no "show tunes" from the lips of the guy who was a cheerleader in college, not to mention a no-show for the Air NG.
