Betrayal

Take a look at the photo in this PR story from the White House.

It looks like Dubya is going to have to get some good milage out of that picture.

The International Association of Fire Fighters voted unanimously on Wednesday to boycott a national tribute to firefighters who died on Sept. 11, in an angry response to U.S. President George Bush’s rejection of a bill that included $340 million to fund fire departments:

"The president has merely been using firefighters and their families for one big photo opportunity… We will work actively to not grant him another photo op with us."

Maybe White House staff can just use Photoshop instead.
