Bush's South American trip

All those poor Latin American countries have to budget $$$$ for riot control. Bush thinks his presence will promote capitalism democracy to offset Chavez's socialistic views, but it is just pissing people off.
SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) - The beginning of President Bush's five-nation Latin American tour sparked protests across the region, with thousands of demonstrators and police clashing in Brazil and students in Colombia lobbing explosives at authorities.

More than 6,000 students, environmentalists and left-leaning Brazilians held a largely peaceful march through the heart of Sao Paulo before police fired tear gas at protesters and beat them with batons. Hundreds fled and ducked into businesses to avoid the chaos, some of them bloodied.

    All the while, those of us at home are holding our breath. You know if he is injured or worse in SA, they'll get a war up their noses. So, protest all you want people, but remember this is the party of attack.

    It reminds me of Nixon going down as Veep. Maybe one of our amigos will bounce a brick off his walnut-hard head.
