Food poisoning strikes President Bush?

Associated Press is reporting that President Bush came down with a stomach ailment Friday at the G-8 summit in Germany and is resting in his room.

Dan Bartlett, counselor to the president told reporters, "I’m not sure if it’s a stomach virus yet or something like that. He’s just not feeling well in his stomach."


Although ill, the president did meet for an hour with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but, as a precaution, the meeting took place in Bush’s private room.

Perhaps they had some raw milk cheese?
