Well, I finally got the Official photo in on Saturday from when Bush came to Chattanooga. Due to my scanner being dirty and my MoveableType thumbnail creator not working right now the image looks a bit grainy. I think the autograph is real. I know sometimes they just use a really good printer, but the autograph itself looks done by hand. I will have to check out Ben's and David's photos to see if they are exactly the same.
Also, I want to thank a Chattanooga photographer named Jon for offering to scan the image for me. Maybe I can even talk him into removing Elvis from the photo. :-) Though really, how often do you have a picture with the President of the United States and Elvis in one shot? Not often I bet.

Wow, you're so lucky. Nice picture!
Ha ha. Not quite sure Bush wants to be in the same club as Nixon. But you know...if the shoe fits.
Great, David. The picture is worth a thousand words. Being at the right place at the right time is often better than being smart. You have both - being at the right place and being SMART.
We love you guys.
Not to bust your bubble, but the signature isn't real, at least not in the sense that Bush actually signed your photograph. The White House and Congressional offices use something called a signature machine, which uses a marker to automatically trace the president's signature. It's not a printer, but it's not actually signed, either. Such is life.
Hey, what's more important the signature or the fact that he posed for the picture twice? Make sure you put the story with the picture. Hmmmmmm, I think I might post this on my blog tomorrow. We'll see if i can't come up with some cute caption.
Forget Elvis, who's the other guy with his head popping up in the background? I'm half expecting him to use his fingers to do bunny ears on Bush
Not only did he pose twice, like Sharon mentioned, but--sorry Ben and Blackburn--he is clearly leaning toward my husband for the shot! And a kiss from Elvis. . .
Here, I got rid of that pesky Elvis poster for you.
Kevin it is beautiful!
G.W. Bush is the worst president this country has ever seen. VIVA RON PAUL!
