BUSH vs. HOOVER....George Bush will probably be the first president since Herbert Hoover to lose jobs during his first term in office. Guess what else he has in common with Hoover?

President Bush declined an invitation to speak at the NAACP's annual convention, the group said.

....NAACP spokesman John White said Wednesday that Bush has declined invitations in each year of his presidency becoming the first president since Herbert Hoover not to attend an NAACP convention.

But at least Hoover had a distinguished pre-presidential career, including yeoman work feeding starving Belgians. At the same point in his career, Bush was being bailed out of failed businesses by dad's Saudi pals.

Quite a guy, our 43rd president.
