Feed That President!
MERIDA, Mexico -- President Bush just wrapped up the last event of his five-country, six-day tour of Latin America and clearly food is still on his mind. "Your hospitality was very generous," he told Mexican President Felipe Calderon, "and the meals were quite good." Later in this final news availability, he jumped in when a Mexican reporter asked Calderon what he talked about during a recent lunch with his predecessor, Vicente Fox. "They talked about carne," Bush joked, using the Spanish word for meat.
As he heads back home to Washington this afternoon, hopefully the meal on Air Force One will satiate him. For another fun take on the president's food fetish, check out this piece by Traci Carl of the Associated Press.
