WH Pool Report: Getting It on Regularly in the Limo Edition

In this pool report, NYT's Bumiller continues her audition for Architectural Digest and makes a minor correction:


[The president's fundraiser was held in a] company's car museum, which held six gleaming Rolls Royces and Cadillacs from the 1920s and 1930s. There was a wooden parquet floor and centerpieces of red roses. On the walls were vintage French and American car and bicycle posters, really nice.
And:
Scott said on the tarmac in Wisconsin that Karl Rove frequently rides in the limo with the president, and the scene of Karl getting in to ride with Bush in my earlier pool report was not that unusual.
OK then.

Full report after the jump.

St.Louis to Milwaukee

You heard the president's remarks, here are the atmospherics:

Bush walked up so unobtrusively on a small stage that people eating lunch might have looked up from their plates in surprise to see the president of the United States standing there, at a small lectern in front of American and Missouri flags. The modest-sized room was the company's car museum, which held six gleaming Rolls Royces and Cadillacs from the 1920s and 1930s. There was a wooden parquet floor and centerpieces of red roses. On the walls were vintage French and American car and bicycle posters, really nice -- one advertised Peugeot Cycles and another said Cycles Clement.

Officially the fundraiser was held in Bridgeton, which is right next to St. Louis; it was less than a five-minute drive from the airport.

We're now aboard Air Force One with the usual bumps.

Karl will definitely not come back to talk about the president's poll numbers; we left him behind in Missouri, where he is to address an Illinois state GOP convention on Saturday.

The weather in St. Louis was rainy and cold.

We're now in the pool van heading to the commencement, traveling north on I-43, with a bunch of motorcycle escorts. No crowds or protestors, although small knots of supporters watched the motorcade as it pulled out of the airport.

Scott said on the tarmac in Wisconsin that Karl Rove frequently rides in the limo with the president, and the scene of Karl getting in to ride with Bush in my earlier pool report was not that unusual.
