Bush was wearing his bike helmet and a mouth guard when the mishap occurred. Duffy said he didn’t know exactly how the accident happened.
“It’s been raining a lot and the topsoil is loose,” the spokesman said. “You know this president. He likes to go all out. Suffice it to say he wasn’t whistling show tunes.”
Duffy said Bush probably would be wearing a bandage on his chin during a party Saturday night for his daughter, Jenna, who graduated from the University of Texas earlier in the day. Bush left Crawford shortly after the bike mishap for the party in Austin.
“He had minor abrasions and scratches on his chin, upper lip, nose, right hand and both knees,” Duffy said. “Dr. Tubbs, who was with him, cleaned his scratches, said he was fine. The Secret Service offered to drive him back to the house. He declined and finished his ride. ( ) ”

My concern is that W's occasional collisions my be symptomatic of an on-going sustance abuse problem.
W does, after all, ackwoledge a problem with alcohol earlier in life, which he claims to have conquered. And of course there have been persistant "suggestions" of daliances with various drugs at various times in his life.
This "bike crash" reminds me of the "pretzel incident" earlier in W's presidency. Surely the pressures of the Emperor, er, Presidency must be intense...sufficient, perhaps to drive one to....Drink?, or worse.
And getting high is a good way to find yourself falling down.

have any of you ever seen a real black eye ? can anyone point out to me the pictures that show anything like a black eye ? There is no way the marks on his face are from anything but a fall. I have been in bike falls and fights, I can say 100% the marks on his face are not from a fist, elbow, knee or anything but an abrasion !!!!!
