Bush Calls for Peace in 2006

By  | 

CRAWFORD, Texas -- President Bush is wishing for peace and prosperity in 2006.

White House spokesman Trent Duffy says the president's New Year's resolution is to continue to work tirelessly for peace abroad and prosperity at home.

The president will ring in the new year at his Crawford ranch with his wife, Laura, and her mother, Jenna Welch. Items on their New Year's Eve menu include steak, tamales, green chili and cheese grits, grilled vegetables, black-eyed peas, a Texas grapefruit and mozzarella cheese salad, and chocolate cake.

Bush will board the Marine One presidential helicopter early tomorrow to visit wounded troops and award Purple Hearts at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. Then he'll fly back to Washington on Air Force One.

On Wednesday, he's expected to watch the Rose Bowl -- and cheer for the Texas Longhorns as Number Two Texas battles Top-ranked Southern California for the national title.
