President Bush will attend a private reception June 16 in Medina to raise money for the re-election campaign of Republican Rep. David Reichert, whose suburban 8th District voted for Democrat John Kerry for president in 2004.The article goes to talk about a $10k price tag on a photo with the President for really high rollers. It's kind of hilarious, like kids getting ripped off by a comic book store owner who promises them that their copy of X-Men 297 will be worth a lot of money some day.
Neither the Reichert campaign nor the White House would confirm Bush's visit, which was first announced, gleefully, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Tuesday. It was confirmed by several local Republicans who received invitations.
What's even funnier are the semi-lies coming from the White House and the Reichert campaign.
A Reichert campaign spokeswoman said she couldn't confirm Bush's stop here during what reportedly is a presidential campaign swing through several Western states for GOP candidates.Ok, so they have sent out invitations to Republicans announcing Bush's visit, and have even put a price tag on pictures with the President, but neither the campaign nor the White House will confirm that the President will be there?
White House spokesman Alex Conant said that for scheduling and security reasons, "we haven't announced the president's schedule beyond this Friday. ... It's premature to discuss potential presidential events this far in advance."
Lose credibility much?
Meanwhile netroots endorsed Darcy Burner is kicking ass and demanding a plan for Iraq.
How much would you pay for a picture with Bush?
