First Max Cleland, and now the Police. Does Bush talk to anyone that he doesn't agree with?

On Friday morning, the White House officially refused to meet with law enforcement leaders about saving the assault weapons ban. The International Association of Chiefs of Police had requested a meeting, offering to send police chiefs to meet with the President on any date that the White House chose. The White House response said the President would not meet with the police due to a "scheduling conflict." (Again, the IACP had not requested any specific date or time for the meeting.)

The boy in the bubble. Let's pop the bubble, shall we?
