A Day in the Life of President Bush (photos) 1.5.04
Yahoo, Reuters, AP | Jan. 5, 2004 | TruthNtegrity

Posted on 01/05/2004 4:30:22 PM PST by TruthNtegrity

Pres. Bush traveled to St. Louis to promote his "No Child Left Behind" education law. Pres. Bush spoke at the Pierre Laclede Elementary School, which he said in his Saturday radio address had risen "to meet our new standards."

Pres. Bush also visited with about 50 fourth-graders. One asked Pres. Bush if he had wanted to be president when he was a child.

"No," Bush told the children, all nearly a decade shy of voting age. "It can be pretty hard." Still, he called his job "a very rewarding experience" and took credit for "a world that's more peaceful, (where) more kids are learning to read."

He also appeared at his first campaign fund-raiser of the year, adding to a record total of more than $110 million in contributions for a primary race in which he has no Republican opponent. Pres. Bush now has $120 Million in his campaign bank account.

On Thursday, the second anniversary of the signing of the No Child Left Behind Act, Pres. Bush will hold a similar event at West View Elementary School in Knoxville, Tenn. Both events are paired with re-election campaign fund-raisers.

"I'm here to congratulate this school and hold you up for the nation to see what is possible when you raise the bar, when you're not afraid to hold people to account, when you empower your teachers and your principals to achieve the objective we all want - that's to make sure no child, not one single child in America, is left behind. We can have excellence in every single classroom across this country."

[snip]

"(The) federal government's a source of money. It's now a source of inspiration. It's a source of measurement. But it's up to the local people to really make it work."

I've heard the number that will be offered amnesty will be 500,000 .. not millions as some people are trying to say.

From the President's return to Washington on Saturday:

Pres. Bush points to a reporter as he leaves St. John's Church in Washington, Sunday, January 4.

From the President's trip to Missouri on Monday: President Bush makes remarks during a forum at the Pierre Laclede Elementary School, in St. Louis. The president is celebrating the two year anniversary of the 'No Child Left Behind Act'.

Shaking hands with fourth graders.

President George W. Bush listens to fourth grader Khadijah McCain as schoolmates Damien Goolsby (2ndR) and Darlet Horton (R) look on at Pierre Laclede Elementary school.

At the fundraiser:

Home again. President Bush gets out of SUV on the Tarmac at Andrews AFB, Maryland.

Does your SUB have doors that drop down - 90 degrees from the side of the SUV, so that the Secret Service guys can stand on them, and shoot, if necessary?

I didn't think so.

Those aren't standard issue SUV's, trust me.

They really do that? Cool! Tell me more about presidential SUV's. I find facinating all the things that go on "behind the scenes" when the president travels, or stays home for that matter.

Thanks for the big welcome back. I've missed all you guys too!!!

Happy New Year to you Truthy!

Awww Shucks You guys are so great.

Since my deceitful ways don't fool you, I shall tell you the truth. Gramms has been trying to get me to mop her floor, wash her dishes, and give her kitchen a major cleaning job forever. She got tired of waiting for the price of gas to drop to .99/gal (I wasn't going to drive unless it was cheap) so she hopped on her porta-jon/convertable to come pick me up. I've been slavin in her kitchen since my Christmas break.

I broke mine today, but I'm right back on trying to keep it.

I worked around the US Navy for over 20 years and they added some, ahem, how shall I say this? colorful language to my vocabulary.

Last year, my New Year's resolution was to keep from saying any of those words outloud and thinking them. Got the out loud part down but didn't do so well with the under my breath.

Sooooooo, this year, I'm working on keeping from even thinking them. Traffic in the rain today did me in.

But I'm going to work on it, if it takes me ALL year to get this done.

Truthy

I'm off to grab some dinner. BRB in twenty.

No calls or emails yet. I'm still hoping. I was told that it might take a week or so for them to work through their Inboxes, for snail mail and email as most took time off at the end of the year.

So, I'm saying a prayer everyday for some calls.

It just takes ONE to get me back in. ONE.

I can't wait. I want so much to do what I used to do and since I did/do it with brilliance, I know that I can be really useful and productive for someone (for a lot of money, of course!).

Thanks for asking. Keep praying?

Truthy

.........and now for some dinner. I'll be back in a few.

Somehow I acquired that colorful language as well. I've resolved many three years in a row to erase it out of my vocab, but certain situations seem to bring the color back.

This year I have a plan. Try and substitute watered down words for the colorful language and take each day five minutes at a time and see if I can go without saying anything bad.

That cold water from the shower when somebody flushes a toilet or turns on a faucet does me in every time.

I wish you the best of luck. I know you can do it. Just don't drive when it rains.

I'm off to grab dinner, too.

Hey, Spacey, there's a newish thread by the Lead Moderator in which he tells people who want to argue about immigration to take it to the Smokey Back Room where it now belongs, or be subjected to losing privileges. This is OUR time on FR. And you're not going to drag us into an argument.

BG is too busy holding Snuggles the Bear hostage during the FReepathon.

I acccused her of trying to find bear recipes for cooking Snuggles (along with holding Logan's Puppy) but she swears that Snuggles has put on weight since the last a-thon.

Man, that was no request. It was an order from the Lead Mod. Thank God that FR is so great. I want to read the threads about imigration, but between the libertarians who want EVERYBODY let in, and the hate-filled whoevers who want to put EVERYBODY who didn't arrive on the Mayflower put out, I gave up. Now, it should be safe to start learning from those threads again.
