Phony to the Core

| August 22, 2003

Dressed in a cowboy hat and leather jacket while driving his pick-up truck, President George W. Bush looks like just another guy enjoying his home on the ranch -- except that it's not a ranch. Cheryl Seal reports on, an online community site for Democratic voters and activists, that what has been projected as Bush's comfortable homestead is 'actually a 10,000-square-foot single-level mansion' constructed specifically for the 2000 presidential election. Even the town of Crawford, which consisted of 400 people in 2000, has been manufactured to fit Bush's image, Seal reports. 'Alas, the Crawford ranch is a symbol of the utter corporate phoniness of this administration,' she writes.
