We went through before. Come on. It has to be a ballistic vest IMHO. They do have like a small plate in the back. At least the one I have seen. Its not unresonable that the Secret Service would make him wear one to protect him in a crowd of strangers. Kerry seemed to have a slight bulge as well in the 2nd debate. The president would have the best tech avalible and maybe there has been a breakthrough that has not been made avalible to the general public. Maybe much thinner than the ones worn today? Or maybe he has a ceramic plate to protect against a long rifle shot? The bulge in the back would protect the heart from an elevated sniper shooting him in the back.

Why does Bush feel the need to lie about it?
Just say "it is something i can't discuss."
Could it be he is just a compulsive liar?

Not that this matters so much, but you do get a hint of how uncomfortable Bush is making that excuse watching the video.
I just saw it.
He's saying something like "I can't tell you how embarrased I am to say it's... (looks hard right) bad tailoring.." (or however he said it).
It's the way he shifts his eyes hard out of line of sight. He is lying. And it is something he's deeply ashamed of. Don't know if that means the lying part or the real reason for the bulge. But it's all in the eyes.

But Bush wore a transmitter and Kerry didnt. Bush was flat out asked and he came up with the lame excuse of the "cheap shirt"
But, whats another lie???
