"I love to Fish"

Bush signing striped bass protection President Bush visited the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, MD where he signed an Executive Order protecting striped bass and red drum fish.

“The Vice President tells me there’s a lot of fine fishing here, and I’m looking forward to going out and trying to catch some. I love to fish. And the good news there’s a lot of good fishing here is because the Secret Service won’t let me go hunting with him.”

White House Press Release.

“The striped bass — I don’t know if our citizens follow the striped bass, but it’s a good fish to catch. It’s a lot of fun. It’s also a good fish to eat. We’ve got to make sure we’ve got enough to catch as well as enough to eat.”

Does anyone else see the irony of the President going fishing after signing and Executive order protecting fish? Hmm.
