The Closed-Door President

Has this ever happened before in American electoral history? President Bush is so unpopular that he has not appeared in public in a single event in support of a Republican candidate this election year.

According to CBS News:

Not once this year has President Bush appeared in public at a campaign rally for the Republican Party or any of its candidates…It makes it laughable what McCain said seven months ago in the
Rose Garden with Mr. Bush: “I intend to have as much possible
campaigning events together, as it is in keeping with the President's
heavy schedule. And I look forward to that opportunity.”

It might prove to be the biggest whopper McCain has uttered during his presidential campaign.
