Bush mixes policy and politics this week
From CNN Ticker Producer Alex Mooney

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush mixes politics and policy this week as he sprinkles several fundraisers into his official schedule.

Bush will meet with the Peruvian president Tuesday and then participates in a panel on school safety in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Later, the president heads to Macon, Georgia, for a fundraiser for former Rep. Mac Collins, R-Georgia.

On Wednesday, Bush will be back in Washington to meet with the commander-in-chief of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and later with the president of the Southern Baptist Convention before delivering remarks on the economy.

The president heads West on Thursday, delivering a speech on energy in St. Louis, Missouri, ahead of appearing at a reception for Illinois Republican congressional candidates David McSweeney and Peter Roskam. Embattled House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Illinois, is also expected to attend the fundraiser, which will also benefit the Illinois Congressional Victory Committee.

On Friday, Bush signs the SAFE Port Act in the morning and attends a noon fundraiser for the Republican National Committee. Bush then holds a meeting with the "President's Management Council on the President's Management Agenda." The president also participates in a photo opportunity with members of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. To close out the week, Bush makes remarks Saturday at the U.S. Air Force Memorial Dedication.
