Bush Gets Booed...Over And Over And Over Again

Today is the last day of March and this specific time of year means one thing, the start of the Major League Baseball season. Teams from across the country have done their warm-up games in Arizona and Florida and are now taking to their respective fields across America. Unfortunately for one crowd, President Bush prefers to throw out the ceremonial first pitch just a few miles from the White House.

From RawStory:

President Bush met with a mixed reception this evening as he threw the 2008 inaugural pitch at the new Nationals Park, built for the Washington Nationals baseball team.

With a quick introduction and a wave, Bush makes a high pitch to Nationals manager Manny Acta and proceeds to shake his hand. The boos reignite as Bush waves once more and exits.

Of course, don't take my word for it, watch the video yourself and you'll hear the chorus of boos for every second that our disgrace of a President is on that field. It seems that no matter where he goes, disapproval follows. Too bad for George the Secret Service couldn't put the crowd in a First Amendment zone.
