From Our Sources:
First Daughter Barbara Bush had her purse and cell phone stolen as she had dinner in a restaurant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, even though she was being guarded by a detail of Secret Service agents, according to law enforcement reports made available to ABC News.
A Secret Service agent on the advance detail got into an "altercation" with someone after a night out and was badly beaten, according to the law enforcement reports. The Secret Service said today the incident was an attempted mugging that occurred while the agent was on his own time. The agent is doing fine.
The purse snatching took place on Barbara's first night in town while she was dining in the picturesque San Telmo neighborhood. According to the reports, the Secret Service agents failed to notice the incident.
Here's why this looks bad.
Bush's family is galavanting around the world, while he makes Iraq out as the most important battle of our time.
Yet not one of the draft age members of his family have enlisted to serve in any branch of the military nor do they oppose the war. It gives an air of calous indifference to the suffering of many
These women don't even have regular jobs, two years after graduating college. It seems that there is no clue as to how the party girl reputation of Bush's daughters make him look.
