A day in the life of President Bush (photos) 12/14/04
Yahoo News Photos & WhiteHouse.gov ^ | 12/14/04

Posted on 12/14/2004 4:12:09 PM PST by Wolfstar

TODAY'S HIGHLIGHT: GWB awarded the nation's highest civilian honor -- the Presidential Medal of Freedom -- Ambassador L. Paul "Jerry" Bremer, former CIA Director George Tenet, and retired U.S. Army General Tommy Franks.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: General Tommy Franks was raised in Midland, Texas -- nothing wrong with that. (Laughter.) I didn't know him then, but Laura and he went to the same high school. In those days, some people in Midland wondered about Tommy's future. It sounds familiar. (Laughter.) At a recent high school reunion, Tommy's old principal told the General, "You weren't the brightest bulb in the socket," to which the General replied, "Ain't this a great country?" (Laughter.) -- President George W. Bush, Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony, 12/14/04

Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island.

I hope you have some pics of Bremer as well. I always thought he was pretty hot.

But there are a lot of cute Republican guys and gals.

Bremer seemed particularly moved (and isn't that a fine-looking officer in the background).

Because Tommy Franks is taller than the President, he had to stoop down a little so GWB could place the medal around his neck.

These are examples of the President's great graciousness. George Tenet is, IMHO, not worthy of such an award but I will go with the President's judgement. He was let down by Tenet.....but that doesn't mean this President will put a person on a permanent enemies list after such a disappointment.

Graciousness is what it means to me.

Y'know, I kinda feel sorry for George Tenet. I think he's gotten hit with blame from every side for every problem. He certainly holds some amount of responsibility for some things but it seems like he's gotten considerably more criticism than he deserves. Anyway, that's just my opinion...

I tend to to agree with you to some extent regarding Tenet

Everyone: all clear. That's all the good photos available as of now.

No, I chose my name from a poem that was written for the Revolutionary period. If you click on my forum name the poem is on my about page. I believe the poem was based on a true story but am not sure about the name, it may be fictional.
