Tell me, has Bush come off of vacation yet?
I mean, I assume that with the Terralert, he is rushing back to "protect America" and all.

Right?

1. Nope. He's in one of the plains states at a fundraiser today.
Afterward, he'll jet back to the pig farm in Crawford.

3. Nope! He's burning jet fuel fund raising again
with his traveling podium!!!

    ..."We do believe the plot involved flights from the U.K. to the U.S. and was a direct threat to the United States," Snow said.

    "You can't go overboard when you're trying to save lives," Snow added, speaking to reporters traveling with Bush on Air Force One en route to Wisconsin.

    Because Bush had been getting regular briefings on the developments, Snow said the president was not awakened overnight as action by British authorities was made public.

    He and British Prime Minister Tony Blair held a lengthy teleconference on the matter Sunday and spoke again Wednesday by phone, Snow said.

    "There were some signs," Snow said. "They thought it was time to move," he said of British authorities.

    Bush called the cooperation between British and U.S. officials "solid" and "excellent."

    After the remarks, Bush was keeping to his plans to highlight the economy during a tour and speech at a metal plant and to attend a Republican fundraiser. ...

4. On Bush's vacation reading lists , "Polio: An American Story,"
Two of the books were about Republican Party hero Abraham Lincoln _ "Lincoln: A Life of Purpose and Power," by Richard Carwardine, and "Lincoln's Greatest Speech: The Second Inaugural," by Ronald C. White Jr.
His third choice, "Polio: An American Story," by University of Texas historian David M. Oshinsky" won the Pulitzer Prize. It tells the story of polio in the United States in the 1940s and 1950s, including the establishment of the March of Dimes and the discovery of the Salk and Sabin vaccines.

5. On his "list" - but what are the odds he's actually going to read them?
These titles sound like books that may use words larger than one syllable and probably don't have pictures on every page to help explain the text.
