President Bush Visits Ruth E. Harris



President Bush made an unexpected stop during his afternoon visit to Northeast Ohio that made it a day to remember for a 91-year old birthday girl.

The Presidential motorcade was departing a Gates Mills fundraiser en route to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport for a plane ride back to Washington, when a sign caught the President's eye.

The sign read: "Mr. President, please stop to take a 91st B-Day picture with Ma."

A group of people were crowded on the side of the road, trying to coax the President to honor "Ma," who happens to be Ruth E. Harris. She was celebrating her 91st birthday.

The President did stop, and so did the traveling press, the secret service -- and nearly everyone on Ruth's block.

President Bush sat with her, holding her hand and taking pictures for several minutes. "You look great," the President told her. "Where is the birthday cake?"

They did a news story on this during our 11 o'clock news and thought that I would share it. I thought it was pretty cool.

Good post! You hear so much negative stuff about the President; it's nice that he took time out of his day to honor this lady. Good for his image, too. But I think he just did it to be nice. :) Seriously, I do.

he may have, but i have no problem with him doing something - just to be nice.

i am not a huge fan of his but i like these type of stories that he does and i love his concern for Africa.

:) Ruth Harris is my grandmother and I couldn't be more excited for her. She is such an amazing woman and it's great to see that people are being positive about this. I know there is a lot of hate for President Bush, but either way, he seems to be a pretty cool guy when he does stuff like this :)

Either way.. kudos for this entry :)

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
