You’re in Florida…In Miami, to be exact… There is
chaos going on around you, caused by a hurricane and
severe floods.

There are huge masses of water all around. You are a
CNN photographer
and you are in the middle of this great disaster.

The situation is nearly hopeless. You’re trying to
shoot very impressive
photos. There are houses and people floating around
you, disappearing into the water.

Nature is showing all its destructive power and is
ripping everything away with it.

Suddenly you see a man in the water, he is fighting
for his life, trying
not to be taken away by the masses of water and mud.
You move closer.

Somehow the man looks familiar.

Suddenly you know who it is - it’s George W. Bush!

At the same time you notice that the raging waters
are about to take him away, forever.

You have two options.

You can save him or you can take the best photo of
your life.

So you can save the life of George W. Bush, or you can

I’d scream, “Help is on the way Mr. President, just stay calm!” As I was shooting, just to be sure he was looking the right way. :smiling_imp:

It’s against the law to tell somebody that you want to kill the President of the United States.

I’d set the auto timer so’s I could get into the shot and everyone would know I was the hero of the hour. After the one of me grasping the presidential wrist, I’d do another of me pushing his head under. That way, I’d still be the hero, depending on the way the political wind’s blowing.

Not Taiwan’s Law. :wink:

It would be very foolish to assassinate the president of the U.S. Remember the Cheney factor. (Formerly known under Bush I as the Quayle factor.)
