I've seen him 3 times during his presidential campaign here in Ohio, one of which being in my hometown..bringing my total to 4. Each time I left with an overwhelming feeling of joy, excitement, and awe.
I know lots of you can beat that!
Feel free to share your personal experiences and pics here, and how seeing our president touched your heart.....
Gee, I don't know. I saw him about 50 times in 1967-1968 when we were both students. I have seen him, in person, perhaps that many times since then.
I saw President Bush for my first time today here in Miami, Florida. He held a rally with about 9K people. Not bad for a Sunday morning in heavily Democrat, Miami-Dade County. I was two feet away from him. May God Bless this man!
Never: no one is campaigning in MD. But my son was one of the Boy Scouts who set up for his innauguration. Mr. Bush shook the hand of each of them.
About 3,000 or so.
Of course, I live in Midland, went to his church, was in his Bible study, and lived in neighborhood.
Of course, at the time, never looked at him twice.
He has changed quite a bit.
He's completely different in person. IMO
Once, way back in 2001. Actually shook his father's hand - (and Carter's too, but prefer not to talk about that one.)
Once, although I now live in Midland (just 6 years) but was on front line when he came right after 2000 election before inauguration, got to shake hands.
I only have seen him once...But in the next 4 years...who knows what can happen.
I will see him tomorrow in Des Moines for the first time, taking my 9 year old son along, were both very excited!
Saw GWB in person for the first time two weeks ago in St. Petersburg, FL!
Got my picture taken with lovely Laura this past Thursday in Sarasota, FL!
I have both Jeb & George P. 's autographs on a JEB sign from 2002 election.
And Congresswoman Katherine Harris wrote a personal message on the back of my campaign tee shirt yesterday!
Yipppppeeeee! It's great to be a Floridian!
20 or 30 times in Midland in the 50's, including once when he or one of his little brothers pushed me in the pool at the Midland CC.
A couple of times when his dad ran for Congress in 66.
Once when I was on the old Alvin Van Black show at KTRH with his dad in either 68 or 70.
Once at his dads office around 70 or 71.
A couple of times when he was running for Governor.
A couple of times in 2000 when he was running for President.
I think once when his dad was giving a speech at the Houston Galleria when he was trying for the nomination in 1980. My mother, wife and I went and GHW Bush stopped us in the hall to talk for a minute after his speech and I THINK GW Bush was with him at the time.
Took the whole family to the inauagaral and plan to again.
Only once, the first time last week in Yardley PA.
Man, I wish I lived in Ohio!I've never seen him live... I live in Oregon (portland of all places), and there are too too many damn liberal rioters here for him to do any public appereances....He always scheduled outer metro city private events... :( Now I'm jealous of all of you!
Three times in three weeks. Shook hands with President Bush twice.
Photos from two of his visits to Florida here...
