If the liberal media in this country did their collective job I guess I may have found this information in our press rather than on the internet at a Spanish news site. Just to be fair, I did do a google search for the following: Bush, FOP. Guess what I found? The FOP actually endorsed President Bush on Sept. 10th at their meeting in New Mexico. Did I find any American newspaper articles or website postings reporting this news? The answer is a deafing NO. Here is a link to the Spanish article and a link to the google search I did.
