President Bush mixing political with government business today in Miami as the Mid East crisis sizzles.
White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said Bush will try to focus on domestic economic items while in Florida....as well as the Israeli-Hezbullah conflict and the fighting in Israel and Lebanon.
Said Snow on Sunday afternoon, ``The President still has a full agenda as President of the United States. He has domestic and foreign responsibilities. In the Port of Miami tomorrow he will be talking in some length about the situation in the Middle East and the way ahead. So we will certainly address that. But there is ongoing concern around the country -- as many of you have reported -- about people's desires to make sure that we've got a growing economy that's going to have opportunities for them and their kids. He's going to talk about that, too.
He'll talk about it in the context of ensuring that the economy continues to grow, as well as working on international trade. Miami has a big and important port. He will make reference to the role of trade and free trade agreements have had in making that port even more prosperous and bustling. He'll talk about port security and a whole series of related issues.
