......Bush: "Well, I quit drinking in '86. ... It's just really hard to project back into somebody else's shoes. So, no, I guess I don't see ghosts." ....

3. Statement began with a flashback to his DT's?
Maybe he saw ghosts instead of spiders.

4. This is one of the most pointless articles..
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 01:55 PM by sabra
It's a three paragraph blurb of nonesense...

In regards to * comment, You can tell he was going to try to make one of his jokes, but then realized that he was saying something really stupid.

edit: I am not blaming the poster :-)

5. Supposedly Lincoln's ghost is seen often in the White House
Dolly Madison's, too, in the Rose Garden.

Anyway, check out this URL: http://www.whitehouse.gov/ghosts / There are some interesting videos of interviews with WH staff who have had recent sightings.

I was a bit surprised to see this on the official WH site.

7.  I don't think he understood the question. And to me that's scarier than
if he did admit to seeing ghosts.

9. Maybe we can help him
by sending him to spend time behind bars in alcatraz. I have heard there are ghosts there that he would fit right in with!!!

10. President Truman stated unequivocably that the White House was haunted
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 02:07 PM by American Tragedy
He said that they kept him up at night with an unbearable racket, but he didn't mind them nearly as much as the living people who haunted him in the daytime.

14. Maybe he sees dead people voting.
But are they repugs or dems? Sweet dreams or nightmares?
