WASHINGTON (CNN) – In keeping with what has become a holiday tradition, President Bush called 11 U.S. troops stationed around the globe to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving and thank them for their service, the White House said Thursday.
Bush is spending Thanksgiving at Camp David and will have holiday dinner at the presidential retreat.
Here’s the menu for Thanksgiving dinner at Camp David, according to the White House:
THANKSGIVING MENU AT CAMP DAVID
Free-Range Roast Turkey
Sautéed Green Beans
Morelia Style Gazpacho with Spinach Salad
Whipped Maple Sweet Potatoes
Buttered Mashed Potatoes
Fresh Clover Rolls with Honey Butter
Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Topping
Pumpkin Mousse Trifle
Fresh Fruit Platter
Let the rest of them eat cake.
WOW he can feed a lot of hungray and homeless people with a menu like that. Maybe they should invite the public over for Thanksgiving dinner.
George Bush will be DRUNK by DINNER TIME.
Why do people keep saying "holiday dinner," or "have a happy holiday" instead of Thanksgiving. Is there now something politically incorrect about the word "Thanksgiving" too, just because it was based on giving thanks to God? If so, that is ridiculous.
I am truly thankful for the wonderful young men and women who have volunteered to protect our country. Also, I am thankful that
God allowed this country to have George Bush as president during the past several years. He has stood up for our country when even our own citizens don't.
I can't afford a Thanksgiving dinner.
What a guy! Did he remind them that he is the reason they are there?
Whats going on with DUMBYA ? Are you trying to tell us DUMBYA is not going over to IRAQ to give the Troops another Plastic Turkey ? The Dude is checking out early apparently . Why doesn't he just resign and go home and take 5 Deferment Cheney with him. Obama is ready to lead and this is what America needs at times like this , you bet .
Happy Thanksgiving President Bush and family. Happy Thanksgiving President Elect Obama and family.
It's a shame he's left this country in such a sad fix that most families won't be able to eat as well as he.
Having an average Thanksgiving meal like most Americans would go a long way with most people or maybe this is what cutting back looks like for the president.
He should have to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas in Iraq and Afghanistan with the troops.
He sent them there and should have to stay with them.
It's nice to see,as the food bank line-ups lengthen and the number of
people having to resort to unemplyment insurance continues to grow,
that the well-heeled at the top can sit down to such bounty.
Well,at least in the picture,Shrub has the phone the right way.
And the biggest turkey of all ? Guess ...
boy with all that sugar , no wonder his brain can't function !
Thank you Mr. President for your service.
We should make it illegal to elect anyone that has financially profited from war and we should prohibit elected officials from making any future financial gains from war, e.g. Cheney and Haliburton. How can we really ask others to stop using violence when our own leaders get rich from war?
That's just too much food for the President and his family to eat, they really should share it with some more needy family.
That Menu Sounds So.... Good!
NO answer is NOOOOOOOOOOO.
Our alcoholic President Probably will get drunk and make stupid jokes....
If he is calling to apologize for a the death and destruction he has cause Americans and Iraqis, it wouldnt be a bad thing.
And while he is at it, he could admit that Iraq is much worse off (three countries in one, three major ethnic groups who will now fight till the end of days) than it was with Saddam Hussein.
It sure is nice that Bush and Family have such a varitey of food for today.. Wonder how many Americans can afford as much for thier tables.
THANKSGIVING MENU AT MANY AMERICAN HOMES
Beefaroni or some other canned good that was on sale
Stale bread ends
Canned surprise! The label was off so it was on sale. What is it? Who knows...SURPRISE!
Twinkies (a two-pack split among five family members)
I wonder what the menu is at the homes of AIG and GM executives and CEOs?
Nice to see the waste of good food at Camp David. How nice and thoughtful of him to phone troops though.He had to find something to do useful this week as he is sure isn't attending to this nations business
calling the troops, Dubya?? How about calling them all HOME?!!!
