Jeb Bush hid in a closet to avoid anti-Republican demonstrators

Jeb Bush seeks refuge from Pa. activists

Sat Oct 7, 6:50 PM ET

PITTSBURGH - Protesters greeted Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on his way to a campaign event for a Pennsylvania senator, and he briefly took refuge in a subway station supply closet to avoid the anti-Republican demonstrators.

The president's brother encountered protesters on their way to join a demonstration outside the exclusive Duquesne Club, where Sen. Rick Santorum (news, bio, voting record), a Republican, was holding a fundraiser Friday.

Officers used stun guns to subdue two protesters, saying they disobeyed orders to disperse, said Bob Grove, a Port Authority spokesman.

"It was a very tense situation. They were very close to the governor and shouting on top of him," Grove said.

Bush was not injured.

4. When the people rise up
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 12:31 AM by Gman
those in power hide and cringe. Those in power find theirselves powerless. Their power, given to them by the people, is taken back. Those in power then hide and seek refuge. This is true throughout history.

7. What an arrogant little prick.
Bush blew them a kiss.

Sounds like a provocation to me.

8. that is exactly what it was ...on his way to lifting his hand to blow them
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 04:41 AM by flordehinojos
a kiss (his psycho-motor reaction to what was happening) he may have thought it was better not to give them the finger (as he did here in florida to a group of silver haired ladies who were once upon a time protesting him in tallahasse whilst he happened to drive by in a little red sports car).

it is amazing how soon these bushes can get hooked into giving us a gut reactive emotional response to any signs of our displeasure with them--it is also amazing how automatically they get so many of us to respond in the same way (like wanting to throw things at the t.v. when their faces show up, swearing at their televised images, yelling obscenities to them when their helicopter flies by ...) they are just a bunch of bastards poisoning this country and the rest of the world.
