Photo blogging the president’s visit…

President Bush in Cincinnati for Congressman Steve Chabot

UPDATE II: The photos have been posted to Flickr for awhile now. But if you have not seen the photos I took of the president’s visit, click on the one above – of President Bush deboarding Air Force One at Lunken Aiport – to be taken to the rest of the shots from that day.

UPDATE: Not sure why, but it didn’t work. I sent about four photos to the blog from my cell phone but for some reason they didn’t get posted. I do have some photos of the visit that I will post soon.

I am about to head to Lunken Airport to be in the press pool for today’s visit to Cincinnati by President George W. Bush. He will be heading to the Hyde Park home of Reds’ owner Bob Castellini to headline a fundraiser for Ohio 1st District Congressman Steve Chabot.

I am covering this for The Cincinnati Post and plan (and hope) to supplement my coverage with photo blogging posts (and maybe some text thrown in if I am able) to this blog during the expected two-hour ordeal. Wheels down is expected around 5 p.m.
