Air Force One is expected to buzz the Quad Cities next week, creating a dilemma for some Iowa politicians. Some eastern Iowa lawmakers have a decision to make. Should they be in Des Moines Monday for the opening of the Legislature? Or should they be in the Quad-Cities to meet and greet President George W. Bush? No word yet from the White House, but area Republicans say Bush will fly into the Moline airport Monday morning. Then he’ll travel by motorcade to Deere and Company’s Harvester Works in East Moline. East Moline Mayor Joe Moreno says he does not know the reason for the visit. But Republicans speculate it’s to discuss either the free trade agreement or the economic stimulus package. Bush is expected to fly back out of the Quad-Cities about noon Monday.
