Bush to Visit Artesia NM 6/6

Little_1According to an article in the Albuquerque Journal, Bush will be visiting Artesia, NM on June 6th, our primary election day, to tout his immigration plan. I think it's telling that the public will not be allowed to attend his speech at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC). With his approval ratings still down in the basement, Bush appears to be sneaking around, not even taking a chance on his usual "pre-screened" audiences full of right-wing Republicans.

Heather_3Double Whammy! As reported in an earlier post, Bush will also be attending a big-donor fundraiser for fake moderate Heather Wilson (R-NM CD1) at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Albuquerque on June 16. No public allowed there either, although many groups are planning on protesting Bush's visit across the street from the hotel at the Civic Plaza while he's in town, starting at 3:00 PM on 6/16. I encourage all Dem candidates to come on down and offer to pose for photos for a mere $5, to contrast the going price for a picture with Bush -- $5,000!
