Benvenuto Del Signor Presidente

Nobody likes him. Reuters (06.08.07), via FirstDraft:
"President George W. Bush will skip a visit to a central Rome neighborhood for security reasons, a move that highlighted fears of possibly violent demonstrations against his visit to the city on Saturday.

The Sant'Egidio Roman Catholic community, which has been nominated several times for the Nobel peace prize, said on Friday they were told by U.S. officials that Bush would not visit their headquarters in the Trastevere neighborhood."

Bush visit to Rome district scrapped over safety

"Posters reading 'No Bush, No War', have been plastered in many parts of the city and rainbow-colored peace flags were hung in Trastevere and other neighborhoods."

"'He would probably get a warmer welcome in Cuba,' said Roberto Calderoli, senator from the opposition Northern League."

Ouch.
