PHOENIXVILLE - Car honks of support serenaded and turned down thumbs greeted a George W. Bush impersonator who waved to, and shook hands with, both drivers and pedestrians from the corner of Bridge and Main streets on Friday afternoon.

With the election only four days away, tempers flared. Many denounced the man in the suit and Bush mask with a Bush/Kerry campaign pin.

One pedestrian paused long enough to say to the impostor, "I'd vote for Hitler before I'd vote for Bush."

A supportive couple stopped to have their photo taken with the man who resembled the current president and another person gave her support for Bush as she walked by.

"I'm for Bush all the way," she said.

"I believe in President Bush's morals, moralism and his war on terrorism," said the mock president. "I oppose a lot of Democratic viewpoints. The Democratic party has gone way far to the left."

The man behind the mask who refused to give his name, predicted a Bush victory on Election Day, and said that he was not a member of any organization, but was only "doing my duty."

A John Kerry impersonator attracted attention from the same intersection several weeks ago.
