He can't even take a vacation. You'd think with all the vacation experience that he's had (more days off than any other president with two and a half years left), he'd have this vacation thing figured out. But, nooo, "those" people keep showing up.

Excerpts; Link below; my emphasis

"Tuesday was supposed to have been a vacation day for President George W. Bush. Yet before dawn, the small group of reporters traveling with Bush in the central Idaho wilderness was summoned by a surprise 6 a.m. wake-up call from the White House press office. "Meet in the hotel lobby at 7:15," a press officer said. "The president is going to make a statement."

"Yet the speech--to the VFW in SLC--received a somewhat tepid response from a usually friendly audience. While there were a fair number of whoops and outbreaks of applause, the 15,000 VFW members in attendance were notably more somber in their reaction to Bush's speech than in the previous two appearances he has made before the group. Outside the venue, Bush ran into even more trouble, as his motorcade passed an antiwar protest numbering more than 1,000 people. In Idaho, where local TV stations devoted more than half their newscasts to Bush's arrival in the state, the Utah protests were prominently mentioned, as were similar gatherings in Boise and near Tamarack."

"The question for the White House is whether it will be enough to stem the tide of rising concerns about the war and to counter the message of activists like Cindy Sheehan who are calling for a complete withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq sooner rather than later. In Idaho this week, one antiwar demonstrator declared, "He's going to find a Cindy Sheehan in every community across the United States." For Bush, that's not good news."
