Saturday, the president, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld and Condi Rice met with Pakistan's President Musharraf at the White House. Bush said, "We discussed international politics. I assured President Musharraf that there is an opportunity at hand to work toward the development of a Palestinian state and peace in the Middle East." He gave his radio address, saying, "We must do everything necessary to confront and defeat the terrorist threat, and that includes intelligence reform. By remaining focused and determined in these efforts, we will strengthen the safety of our citizens and defend our nation from harm." Vice President Dick Cheney will lead the US delegation to Afghan President Hamid Karzai's December 7 inauguration, the White House announced. The president went to the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia.
Sunday, the First Couple went to St. John's Church in DC. He presented awards at the 27th annual national celebration of the arts.
Monday: On an international level, Bush met with Iraqi interim President Ghazi al-Yawar; Jordan's King Abdullah II; and Senegal's President Abdoulaye Wade. On the national scene, he met with Dennis Hastert and Tom DeLay from the House of Representatives, and Senator Bill Frist, on Bush's proposal to overhaul Social Security. Laura Bush hosted Viviane Wade, wife of President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal, for tea. The First Couple enjoyed time with some of our youngest citizens with a Children's Christmas reception and program in the East Room of the White House.
Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island!
QUOTES: After meeting with King Abdullah: "Today, we had a chance to talk about the Jordanian economy, and the growth of the economy and the amount of trade between our countries is growing, which is to the benefit of the Jordanian people, as well as to the American people."
After meeting with Iraqi Interim President Al-Yawer: "I believe the Iraqi people have got the capacity and the desire to self-govern. And these elections will be a very important moment in the advance of democracy."
Dose going up.
Please wait to post or repost photos till the All Clear.

Thank you, Gretchen.

Hey, all, I received my Christmas card from the White Hosue today! I don't know why I'm so far down on the list, it doesn't seem to arrive by order of the alphabet for one's last name ... but you know, it really did something for me to receive it, even though it's not hand-signed. It's a neat tradition.
G'day Gretchen! Thanks for the ping and looking forward to today's dose... :0)

I got my card last week. It was delayed because I moved and it was forwarded. Don't you think it is prettier in person than it was in the pictures we saw of it? I do. I put it next to my gorgeous picture of George and Laura that they sent. What a thrill huh?

I will pray for you and your dad, and the medical staff.
Y'all are very welcome for the pictures.
Please feel free to post others you may find.
I saw that on the whitehouse website I suppose that means we are only going to get one picture a week instead of one a day.
Thanks for the ping and the thread. Hello all.
Wonderful pictures. Thank you, Gretchen.
What an honor to be asked to escort W onto the field.
Thank you for the great pictures! I knew the ones with the children would be precious.
And Hollywood starlets could take a lesson from Dr. Rice on how to look glamorous.
Received my RNC calendar today. Wow there are some fantabulous pics of the president in it! :-)
Thanks as always for your prayers. I must go to bed now would love to stay and chat but must not as I have to up an hour earlier tomorrow.
God Bless the President and special prayers for Dick and Lynne Cheney on their trip to Afganistan.
God Bless you all.
"Received my RNC calendar ... "
I was going to go online today and request one -- if you gave during 2004, do you automatically get an '05 calendar? Or should I send more $$ and request one specifically?
Hello and good night Emily long time no speak
Be still my heart! Those Naval uniforms ...
I know. The last month has been hectic and this one will be as well. I hope you are doing well. Good night.
Hiya, AussieBushBot! How are things your way?
I think as long as you are a member of the RNC, you ought to get one. I haven't done anything special to get one. Good luck!
Thank you for the photos.
I love our President, God Bless and protect him.
And have you noticed that Condi Rice already looks.....PRESIDENTIAL?!
Agreed, Gretchen. My husband has some pics of himself in Naval Dress and yes indeed...be still my heart!
Welcome to FR and to "the Dose"!
Great pictures, GEM. Thanks for posting
But then, I am an absolute sucker for the sea. It's a good thing I live close to it. I think I'd go crackers if I had to be away from the salt air, sunsets on the Pacific, sea breezes, ships blowing their fog horns, the ocean's rhythms and how they speak to the cycles of life (to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens), the feeling of great expanse and freedom imparted when viewing the massive, incomprehensibly massive, waters ... ah, the sea!
Great pics! I missed seeing any pics of the President at the Army Navy game, so these are great.
Doesn't Condi look smashing!
I bet it is killing Elton, Warren, Ossie & Ruby to get a medal from our guy, but it is an honor and they have to just stand there and take it. I love it.
Thanks for the Daily Dose!! :D
Thanks for showing the Church pictures as there are those on FR who argue that the first family don't go to Church, thus aren't really Christians. (They know who they are!)
