The Coward of Crawford goes to NY
What exactly is he afraid of? Every cop, National Guardsman, and state trooper in the state of NY has been summoned to midtown to protect him. Streets blocked off, barricades erected, trains shut down. Helicopters, snipers, searches. No one's getting into MSG without credentials. What is this about? Bush will NEVER live this down.
Aug. 20--When president Bush accepts the Republican nomination in two weeks, he will enter Madison Square Garden on a specially made blast- and bullet-proof stage, the Daily News has learned.
The platform is being constructed off-site from the Garden, sources said.
"It's a whole different" stage from the one that will be used during the other hours of the Republican National Convention, which runs from Aug. 30 through Sept. 2, the night Bush arrives, said one source. - NY Daily News 8-20 archived, mirrored here
