A Meeting With "BASS Fisherman 1"
« on: February 20, 2006, 08:53:56 PM »

I had the opportunity to meet President Bush. I constructed the semiconductor plant he visited today. Afterwards, we were invited to a greeting line as he made it back to his limo.
My comments to the President on the video were something like this:
"It was a pleasure meeting you President Bush. I want you to know that...... (my personal comments to him on his presidency)....but I also want you to know that you are my favorite bass fisherman and thanks for taking the time to do the OLN show with Roland Martin. I enjoyed your fishing and remarks on bass conservation"
The President then responded that I should meet him for a day on the water! I told him "Anytime, I would be happy!"  It was a nice remark, though I doubt I will ever cast a lure with the President.

That really is cool,it would be so great to shake the presidents hand,not to mention talk to him(I would not know what to say,I would be in awe,I might be able to get Hi! out).It would not surprise me that he would take the time to fish with you,if he was reminded.
I ain't as good as I once was, but I was good once as I ever was

Way to go!
Original song and lyrics by "MadWags"

What's with the news these days on the TV and the radio. Can't find the truth amongst the lies. Some talking head that claims to live their life in a better way, says I have to compromise. But now there's something on the rise. Truth has opened up my eyes. There's no running from your dirty lies. You can't avoid the truth. I'll no longer close my eyes.

Wow! - great video - sure tops the letter I once got from George (Sr.) that appeared to be signed in ink - it looked like his actual signature even (it just said 'George' but I apparently lost the letter somewhere along the way of moving and 'filing' with all my conservation letters). He didn't say anything about going fishing...

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.

That's outstanding!

Send him a letter ask him to fly in to selfridge and you'll pick him up there and do the catch and release season He hears about all the smallies he will be in and he can plug the new season and use it as a political/media op

Make sure you got the tourny shirt on and get some national coverage!
