He bought a $42.95 takeout order of ribs, fried okra, cornbread and buttermilk pie for the Air Force One flight back to Washington.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (thanks Paul...and whoever sent the link to *him*)

http://www.whitehouse.gov/ news/releases/2004/01/ 20040122-5.html

Remarks by the President to the Press Pool
Nothin' Fancy Cafe
Roswell, New Mexico

11:25 A.M. MST

THE PRESIDENT: I need some ribs.

Q Mr. President, how are you?

THE PRESIDENT: I'm hungry and I'm going to order some ribs.

Q What would you like?

THE PRESIDENT: Whatever you think I'd like.

Q Sir, on homeland security, critics would say you simply haven't spent enough to keep the country secure.

THE PRESIDENT: My job is to secure the homeland and that's exactly what we're going to do. But I'm here to take somebody's order. That would be you, Stretch -- what would you like? Put some of your high-priced money right here to try to help the local economy. You get paid a lot of money, you ought to be buying some food here. It's part of how the economy grows. You've got plenty of money in your pocket, and when you spend it, it drives the economy forward. So what would you like to eat?

Q Right behind you, whatever you order.

THE PRESIDENT: I'm ordering ribs. David, do you need a rib?

Q But Mr. President --

THE PRESIDENT: Stretch, thank you, this is not a press conference. This is my chance to help this lady put some money in her pocket. Let me explain how the economy works. When you spend money to buy food it helps this lady's business. It makes it more likely somebody is going to find work. So instead of asking questions, answer mine: are you going to buy some food?

Q Yes.

THE PRESIDENT: Okay, good. What would you like?

Q Ribs.

THE PRESIDENT: Ribs? Good. Let's order up some ribs.

Q What do you think of the democratic field, sir?

THE PRESIDENT: See, his job is to ask questions, he thinks my job is to answer every question he asks. I'm here to help this restaurant by buying some food. Terry, would you like something?

Q An answer.

Q Can we buy some questions?

THE PRESIDENT: Obviously these people -- they make a lot of money and they're not going to spend much. I'm not saying they're overpaid, they're just not spending any money.

Q Do you think it's all going to come down to national security, sir, this election?

THE PRESIDENT: One of the things David does, he asks a lot of questions, and they're good, generally.

END 11:29 A.M. MST

MORE EDITS! "Terry" is Terry Moran, "David" is David Gregory. According to the AP, Bush also made a UFO joke, saying "I understand you had reports this morning of an unfamiliar aircraft. Don't worry, it was just me."

Saw the remarks on "Countdown"; from what Keith said, David Gregory mentioned that this was (paraphrasingly) "playful" diatribe between Bush and the Press Corps. Being biased, I don't think he came off all that well. I wouldn't have known that this is "playful."

Oh -- and he does ask a pregnant reporter, "Does baby want a rib?" somewhere in there.

Two morons who can't take a hint and get some basic things wrong. Gotta love it.

Mr. Reporter, shut up.

Mr. President, shut up and eat your ribs, then explain how giving this business owner money will create jobs. Then shut up again.



Damn that Triple H; damn him straight to Hell!
