George W. Bush: A good friend to have in a barfight
SANTIAGO, Chile - President Bush broke up a fight last night between his lead Secret Service agent and a Chilean security detail, pulling the agent through a wall of men trying to bar his bodyguard's access to a state dinner.
Mr. Bush and first lady Laura Bush arrived at 8 p.m. local time yesterday at the Estacion Mapocho Cultural Center for the official dinner of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.
After the first couple posed for photos with Chilean President Ricardo Lagos and his wife, the four entered the doorway with a line of Chilean security guards and uniformed police closing quickly behind him.
The president's lead agent approached the line of men as quickly as it closed and demanded to be allowed through. Within a few seconds, the confrontation began to escalate with voices being raised and shoving in all directions.
During the fracas, another Secret Service agent was roughly pulled from the tumult and pushed against a concrete wall by Chilean security. A few seconds later, after posing for yet more pictures about 15 feet inside the doorway, Mr. Bush and the rest of the party turned to enter the dining room. But the president quickly turned his head to the growing din just outside.
Mr. Bush calmly turned right as the other three continued on and inserted himself into the fight. The president reached over two rows of Chilean security guards, grabbed his lead agent by the shoulder of his suit jacket and began to pull.
A few Chilean guards turned their heads and noticed that the arm draped over their shoulders was that of the president, and the line softened. Mr. Bush pulled his agent through, who was heard to say, "Get your hands off me" as he passed roughly through the doorway.
Mr. Bush then adjusted his shirt cuff and said something to the first dignitary he passed as a grin crossed his face.
That's our boy.Update:
Then, of course, there's this yearbook picture from his rugby days at Yale:
Aren't you just so glad
John Kerry isn't going to be President?

Imagine...a President with decisiveness, strength, and aplomb. Man, I'm glad I'm an American in 2004!

Sounds like a volunteer for the copper mines.

at 01:07 PM, 11/21/04
I love it, I love it, I love it! President Bush is a BADASS, make no mistake.
at 03:23 PM, 11/21/04
Any guesses as to what Kerry's reaction would have been under those circumstances? I'm having a hard time narrowing down the choices, but going back to rescue the contingent is not among the options I'm pondering.
at 03:50 PM, 11/21/04
a President with decisiveness, strength, and aplomb.
Yeah. One with the balls to do what was needed himself. Bet the agents are a lot happier guarding him than Kerry or <gag> Clinton.

Hmmm.... Rugby player at Yale... Hard drinking supersonic fighter pilot... Texas oil man... Yep, he's got street cred.

That is what I've been saying for years. As in 'too stupid to breathe.'
at 01:15 PM, 11/22/04
Is that a good way to describe his 7-minute stint in the classroom after learning our nation was under attack. What decisiveness. Boldly flying to . . . Nebraska.
at 11:49 PM, 11/22/04
A President that takes care of business and isn't worried about the press and false protocols. Good Job.
at 06:53 PM, 11/23/04
As a recreational rugby player, that photo really ticks me off. It's a simply a cheapshot, and anyone doing something like that would get tossed from the game immediately. Rugby is a tough and violent game, but honorable.

BUSH = MACHO ASSHOLE
This is from a fellow Chilean.. These are the facts that George "Macho" Bush does not want you to hear... From a fellow Chilean:
12thharmonic shares a letter from a Chilean reader:
I am a Chilean citizen but read your paper daily. Most of us here in Chile share your views and that of like online papers such as Truthout, Whatreallyhappened, Commondreams, etc.
Bush´s visit to Chile has left – so far – most of us chuckling because of the overkill in the security measures taken by his entourage, which is also disproportionate to those of the other leaders. By far. Especially in a town almost empty because of the three day weekend.
Two Jumbos filled up with secret service people; 40 (yes, forty) cars in his caravan including two limos just alike so to inspire doubt as to which one he´s in, a huge ambulance, ominous looking vehicles with 6 antennaes; Two planes (Awacs); 200 9mm weapons introduced into the country; Snipers galore; An entire hotel cut from all contact to the exterior for blocks around it; Bush sneaking in and out of tunnels and back entrances: he even refused, and was the only one to do so, to receive honors in the square in front of La Moneda, our government house, because he would have had to walk 80 yards to get inside the latter.
Courtesy of Atrios
The gala dinner that was scheduled for tonight (Sunday 21st) and was to be hosted by our president with an attendance of 250 ministers, government people, and big Chilean entrepreneurs was cancelled by my president due to the insistent requirements of the US Secret Service (SS?) to check everybody bodily for arms with metal detectors and such. Since we did not want to subject our people to such manhandling the dinner is going to be a smaller affair of 20 people. Hours before this happened, before Bush was to arrive to the CEO Summit, everybody had to leave the room (from all 21 countries, mind you) so the SSs could check seat by seat with detectors and dogs.
Then he made his grand entrance after ignoring the host of the Summit, a Chilean, and read a speech titled “Peace and Prosperity in the World.” Of course the irony of it was not lost on us, simple spectators, or the press. All this to great applause, half of it real, and half of it pre-taped.
As for the fracas that your paper mentions, reading the news article one may think that Chilean secret service and police just interfered without reason. The truth is that the protocol indicated (and this was made known weeks ago) that each leader was to go inside the dinner place with only one bodyguard. They all complied, except Bush, that tried to enter with six. Of course five were stopped.
Some papers said Bush had “imperial airs.”
I think he was hiding as usual

I haven't been following the comments here, but I note the whackjobs are out in force...
12thharmonic shares a letter from a Chilean reader:
Everything described in this letter has been standard policy for decades. Every time Bush, Clinton, or anybody else in modern history has visited Chile, they've brought all that stuff with them. It's been that way since the Kennedy assassination 41 years ago, and Chilean authorities knew what to plan for. To complain about it or think this is something about Bush specifically is the highest ignorance. The other part of your comment is almost entirely subjective, and bases itself on third-hand reports.
