Thursday, July 29, 2004 : Hundreds Watch 'Fahrenheit 9/11' in Bush Hometown

Politics News Article | "CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - Hundreds of people gathered in a rural parking lot near President Bush's Texas ranch on Wednesday to watch Michael Moore's anti-Bush documentary, 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' although the filmmaker canceled plans to attend.
Sitting before a giant inflatable movie screen, filmgoers from across Texas booed and cheered as Moore's record-setting antiwar film satirically recounted Bush's controversial 2000 election and lambasted the president's response to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and his reasons for going to war in Iraq.
Moore had pledged to come to the screening and even invited Bush to attend. But the bespectacled leftist gadfly abruptly pulled out on Wednesday, telling organizers he wanted his movie, not his differences with the Republican president, to be the evening's subject. "
