Bush Might Meet With Borja Jr. In Two Days

I don't know how much Cesar is aware of regarding his father's death. I would like to be a fly on the wall during this conversation. Imagine Cesar walking in to meet Bush, and he says the following, "Mr. President, I'm glad you gave me the time to see you today. Because of this White House's policies regarding the environmental impact of 9/11, people like my father have become sick and died, and many more are going to join them. Either you give them the help that they need, or I am going to go public, and you are going to look very bad. Have a nice day." - Jon

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House said late Monday that President Bush might meet in two days with a New York college student whose father recently died from what some believe was a Sept. 11-caused illness.

"The president is hopeful that a meeting can be arranged when he is in New York this week," White House spokesman Alex Conant said.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., had asked Bush on Monday to meet with Ceasar Borja Jr., the son of a Sept. 11 police officer who died last week after a long battle with lung problems. She made her request in a letter two days before the president is scheduled to visit New York for a speech to the Association for a Better New York.

The senator's letter centers on the case of former New York Police Department Officer Cesar Borja. The 52-year-old died Jan. 23 just as his 21-year-old son was preparing to attend Bush's State of the Union address.

The young man was Clinton 's guest at the speech.

Just hours after learning of his father's death due to pulmonary fibrosis, the younger Borja decided to go ahead and attend the speech as a way to honor his father and bring attention to those who are still sick many years after working at the demolished World Trade Center site.

A day after the speech, he publicly asked for a meeting with the president to tell him about the health problems of ground zero workers.

Clinton, a presidential contender, wrote to Bush urging him to agree to meet Borja.

"While you are in New York City , I ask that you accept the request of Ceasar Borja Jr. to meet with you," she wrote, calling the son "one of so many whose lives have been changed by the devastating health effects of 9/11."

The senator, who has offered legislation that would pay $1.9 billion for health care treatment for sick Sept. 11 workers, said Borja's case is one example of the needs of many more ground zero responders.


She said that when attacked that she believes that you should not just retaliate... but you should "DECK" your enemy.

this when referencing inheriting the war from Georgie Bush

She just said that if she were to be electled.... that she would finish this war.... with a reign of bombs.

Finishing a war that we shouldn't be fighting.... desroying a country that we know had nothing to do with 9/11.

Go Hillary..... you stupid B#@tch!

Another psychopath

Amazing. What a disgusting pathetic macho wanabee. Is shy trying to prove that she can out do the Idiot King in juvinile posturing and bloodthirstyness? Do you have any links to these comments?

I guess this proves that women can be psychopaths too.

It was on Jon Stewart?

I didn't quote her exactly... but what she said was far worse.... and it just slips through peoples star struck radar

If you take the example of someone like Margaret Thatcher -- the Dragon Lady -- you see how female politicians are sometimes (often?) more aggressive than male politicians because they feel they have to overcompensate (for the expectation they will be passive and meek).

I can't see Bush accepting

I can't see Bush accepting this offer. He does better for himself by hiding from the public, like Cheney. The sick of 9/11 should march en masse, force the media and the government to pay attention.
