The President of the United States has stepped on a board and is hanging loose on many a half pipe! It seems like President Bush needed a new hobby since he's got so much free time, even though he's totally in the middle of a war.
When asked why he decided to try skateboarding Bush was quoted as saying, "Hey dude, I do what I feel like. It's a free country...or it was before I took over!" He then did an ollie kick flip onto a railing. The President's staff has been ordered to take all of the furniture out of the Lincoln bedroom and replace it with a loopty loop and railings. The White House has turned into something that looks like it came straight out of the Tony Hawk videogame. Why, you ask? Because Tony Hawk built it!
Tony Hawk was asked about his newfound friendship with the president and he said, "The dude is totally rad." Dick Cheney did not really want to talk about the issue, "I'm more of a rollerblader myself." George W's father was glad his son found a hobby, saying, "I'm glad my son found something to do during the day. He's been getting bored because Dick Cheney is too busy to play now that he's running the country."
Etnies, a skateboarding company, has just announced that they are seriously considering taking President Bush on as a sponsor. "Well he's dedicated to the sport and he's got some talent. We've been scouting him for a couple of weeks and he looks pretty good." Said the talent scout for the company. They are thinking of taking him out on tour all over the world. They think he has potential to be the best skateboarder of all time. He is even already signed on to make "Lords of Dogtown 2: Dogtown's Revenge." It's a risk by Hollywood but the executives are confident that it will pay off.
Right now he's using the taxpayer's money to go on a world tour of local skate parks. So look out if you see someone doing amazing back flips and grinding rails throughout the whole skate park, because it just might be your president.
