The AP writes: “President Bush’s presidency is stuck in low gear. On Sunday, his fishing boat was stuck on stop.”

The Secret Service bailed Bush out of a jam when his boat anchor got wedged in rocks along the Atlantic Coast.

Relaxing before his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the president went fishing with his father, former President George H.W. Bush, and daughter, Barbara.

They dropped the anchor to fish less than 100 feet from shore at Biddleford, Maine, but when they decided to leave, they couldn’t, according to an Associated Press photographer who took pictures of the incident.
