Vacation's All I Ever Wanted...
"But," he added, "I think it's also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life."
...In addition to the two-hour bike ride, Bush's Saturday schedule included an evening Little League Baseball playoff game, a lunch meeting with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a nap, some fishing and some reading.
Okay: I get the bike ride, fishing's no surprise, a lunch "meeting" with Condi doesn't sound any alarms, I can see Bush retiring with a good Tom Clancy novel, but a Little League Playoff game? What? It's not like Bush has a kid in the tournament. What's the President doing spending hours watching a bunch of 10 year olds toss baseballs around?
It's one thing to relax on your vacation, it's another thing to be so goddamn bored that you mosey over to the local elementary school to watch whatever's going on there. I can deal with the fishing and the biking and the reading, but there comes a point when he's just rubbing his aversion to work in our faces.

I think it was the national championship.
Here's my take on the whole thing: http://www.patridiots.com/001801.html

My guess is that the Little League game was a PR thing. It's like hugging a black 10-year old boy or reading "My Pet Goat" to an elementary school. It shows that you're a nice, nurturing guy who loves little kiddies. That's what I'd assume, anyway.

Bush says he's living a balanced life: little league games and huge fund raising events (for him) down the road from his estate (ranch) [pig farm].
And just why is a 2nd term President raising funds again?
