Fox News Alert: President Bush Had Dinner

Reported by Janie - October 12, 2005

Yesterday (10/11) Dayside was a bit slow, and near the top of the hour, hosts Juliet Huddy and Mike Jerrick devoted more than 5 minutes to discussing yet another trip made by George W. Bush to the New Orleans area.

Part of Bush's visit to the area incorporated a photo op at an elementary school in Pass Christian, MS, and Dayside made sure to show the pictures of Bush with the children, to which Huddy cooed: "It really was adorable."

Comment: Oh how sweet. Bush makes a trip to the affected area to meet with the children and Huddy labels this photo op "adorable", while former President Clinton's recent trip to the area, in which he met with many people that were affected, was virtually ignored on Dayside, and most certainly not labeled as "adorable".

Huddy continued by discussing where Bush stayed: "They stayed of course, I mean he's the President, so he's got to stay in a nice hotel, and apparently he stayed in the lap of luxury at the Windsor I believe it was." Huddy then moved on to discuss the most important item of the day: what Bush ate for dinner. Under the banner in large font "Presidential Dinner", they interviewed Charlee Williamson, the Executive Vice President of Bacco, the restaurant in which Bush dined.

When asked about how all of this came about, Williamson responded: "They were looking for a place that had reopened that was a good news story about business coming back to New Orleans, and they found it in Bacco."

Comment: Well, at least someone admitted this was nothing more than a photo op.

Williamson finished up the interview with musing: "The neatest thing was that they ordered off the menu that everyone gets, they didn't ask for anything special."

Comment: Well thank goodness "Dear Leader" eats the same thing as all of us "commoners". I guess not being a prima donna makes Bush a good President? Apparently so on Fox.
