<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The Dukes Of Hazzard beauty Jessica Simpson pulled out of a planned meeting with US President George W Bush tonight, because she is concerned about "politicising" the charity she supports.<br><br>
(snip)<br><br>
"It just feels wrong. She would love to meet the president and talk about Operation Smile... but she can't do it at a fund-raiser for the Republican Party."</td>

He should have called Britney. Last I heard she thought the Prez was a SWELL guy.

Huh, I guess my opinion about her could be a little wrong. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Look at this beautiful child. <a href="http://www.operationsmile.org/testimonials/" target="_blank">http://www.operationsmile.org/testimonials/</a><br>
If she was smart enough, she would have sidestepped the fundraising shindig and still met with him. These kids need financial help to aid in treatment...not a political statement.

These are kids from other countries. Bush is not going to help them. This administration takes from our own kids left and right. I don't care who shows up and sings him a pretty song, healthcare for needy children just isn't on his priority list.

This gets curioser.<br><br>
I saw her on one of the entertainment news tv shows last night. ET or some such. The one with Billy Bush, the president's cousin (who looks a lot like him.)<br><br>
They said it wasn't true she didn't want to see him, that HE didn't have time to see HER. But honestly, it truly seemed to me from the looks on everyone's faces that they were making it up. I got the vibe that the originial story was true.<br><br>
Guess we'll never really know.

It ain't just the government. The average citizen in the US doesn't care either. Don't blame the government for the failings of most of the American population. Most don't care about others....as long as they are taken care of you won't hear a peep from them. And if I could sing, I'd be singing anywhere I'd get donations if it was my charity, but hey, that's just me.

Well considering 6 out of the top 10 richest politicians are DEMOCRATS (plus one independant), I'd steer clear of GWB too if I wanted money.<br>
Personally I'm thinking Jessica bailed because she found out they were serving Chicken of the Sea at the fundraiser.

Not sure what "DEMOCRATS" have got to do with GWB's ability to bungle even the simplest of tasks, but sure.<br><br>
It's definitely Clinton's fault. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Is he on the list? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

She is trying to raise money for Operation Smile. What does "bungling" simple tasks and your indirect reference to the war have to do with this? Nah. Nevermind.
