Bush Visit Details, Burner Town Hall on Iraq

More details are coming out regarding Monday afternoon's visit to Bellevue by Bush for a private fund raiser for Dave Reichert:

Bush is scheduled to land at Sea-Tac International Airport in midafternoon, after attending a similar fundraiser for Sen. Pete Domenici in New Mexico. He'll give a local volunteering award at the airport before his motorcade heads north to Bellevue.

Federal and local officials would not disclose the president's route for security reasons, but Bellevue police said Interstate 405 would likely be affected. I-405 would be the quickest route to Bellevue from the airport.

Wherever Bush's motorcade goes, traffic will be cleared and rush-hour commuters will have to wait until he passes. Bellevue officials said they expect severe afternoon backups because of the motorcade and the large protests expected downtown.

Bush is set to arrive at the fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue at 4:25 p.m. and return to the airport in time to fly out by early evening.
The Seattle Times includes this useful graphic:

The protesters will hold a rally at 12:30 p.m. at the Bradford Center, 700 108th Ave. N.E. At 2 p.m. they will walk two blocks to Northeast Eighth Street and Bellevue Way, just outside the Hyatt.
This is your chance to demonstrate your disapproval of Bush's policies, particularly regarding the Iraq, but surely not limited to that failed invasion. This is your chance to tell Dave Reichert enough is enough, use your vote to get us out of Iraq.

If you can't make it to Bellevue, you can always still participate in Darcy Burner's Virtual Town Hall:

While Bush is hob nobbing with the rich Bellevue elite in a private function, Darcy Burner will be trying to engage with constituents Reichert is ignoring about the Iraq occupation. It goes to show where their priorities differ.
