President George W. Bush Praises Beauty of Idaho on Visit to Tamarack Resort

‘This Is a Spectacular Part of the World’

DONNELLY, Idaho, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ — A day into his first visit to Idaho, President George W. Bush today took time out of his vacation to share his thoughts with the national media at Tamarack Resort.

Surrounded by Tamarack Resort’s evergreen forest, the President thanked Idaho Governor Dirk Kempthorne, “I want to thank the Governor for the invitation to come to Idaho. He (The Governor) has been asking me to come here for five years, and I finally made it. I am going to tell the people tomorrow in Boise that I made a mistake in not coming here earlier. It is a beautiful state. We’re out spending a little time hiking the trails here. This is a spectacular part of the world. I want to thank the people of Idaho for a warm welcome.”

When asked what else he planned to do at Tamarack Resort, the President replied, “I may bike today … Tonight I’m going to be dining with the Governor and the delegation from Idaho, spend a little quality time with the First Lady here in this beautiful part of the world. I may go for a bike ride.”

A national reporter asked if he planned to fish. “I don’t know yet. I haven’t made up my mind yet. I’m kind of hanging loose, as they say.”

The focus of the President’s press conference was on issues of national and international concern, including the formation of a constitution in Iraq, the war in Iraq, and the pullout of Israel in the Gaza Strip.
