President Bush on Deal or No Deal

April 21, 2008

On tonight’s episode of the television show “Deal or No Deal”, President Bush appeared via video conference to wish the contestant good luck. Competing on the show was Captain Joseph Kobes, an officer in the U.S. Army who has been to Iraq for the war three times. His last two tours were by volunteering. Capt. Kobes has received a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star during his time overseas.

As to how the taped message from the President came about, White House spokesman Tony Fratto said,

“The show’s producers contacted the White House after learning from Capt. Kobes that the president is one of his heroes. And it really is, actually, an emotional moment for Capt. Kobes and the family. And so we look forward to that, and we all wish him luck as well.”

President Bush even joked about being happy to be a part of something with high ratings. I actually laughed. Stay tuned for “Deal or No Deal” to see whether the President really brought any luck to Capt. Kobes.
