Bush's Benjamins: The prez is loaded, according to just-released financial disclosures of his and VP Cheney's assets. Remember this when Bush says he can relate to ordinary Americans:
Bush's 1,583-acre ranch was worth between $1 million and $5 million. The president reported having at least $4.95 million in Treasury notes, $750,000 in certificates of deposits and $217,000 in checking and money market accounts. Bush owns the mineral rights valued at up to $15,000 on property in Reeves County, Texas. He also owns a tree farm, which is not expected to have commercial sales until 2007, which currently has a value of just under $600,000.
Interesting, too, are the disclosed gifts, including a $2,700 bike from the owner of Trek, a $14,000 shotgun by gun manufacturer Roy Weatherby, and $400 in salad plates given by Trent Lott's wife.
