President Bush was inaugurated for his second term as President of the United States. Nuff said. Enjoy your special inauguration day edition of the daily dose!
QUOTE OF THE DAY: Inaugural Address Here
What a great day!
Wonderful picture to begin the thread.
Praising God on this Glorious Day!
Sliding into top ten (maybe).
Wow, I'm in the top ten sitting waiting for pictures! I can't believe how beautiful Laura looked today and how handsome and smart our President presented himself. May God bless them and keep them.
Just read this speech,had to be pretty short, but the power packed into it!
Amazing man all arounds
Oh, happy day!
There are TOO MANY PHOTOS tonight! It's too hard to keep up! So, dosers, post your favorite photo from today.
Great pics of a classy family.
Hey, you back. Is this a banner day or what?? WOO HOO!
Happy Anniversary to the Dose!
I hope one day to be loved the way Laura is. You can just see it. She is absolutely radiant!
Superneato first picture and what a great moment to cap off a TREMENDOUS DAY for America and all who love freedom or are struggling to become freedom's friend.
You did a great job, rin. And how appropriate that YOU did today. You worked hard to get us here.
Thanks for all you've done over the last four years.
I missed the entire day filled with presentations and meetings ar work. :(
It's been my pleasure. Who would have thought four years ago that we'd still be going.
Oh shame, I watched all day. It was grand.
Looking at those pictures, have you EVER seen Bush look so relaxed? Ever?
Victory indeed! Welcome to the dose.
Laura Bush is a precious and rare jewel and George W. Bush while honed on manly resolve and strength, is a rough cut diamond and surely must be mighty proud to have made Laura his beloved wife.
God Bless President Bush,Mrs. Bush, his family, our country and the Brave men and women who serve in our Armed Forces.
This is a day to celebrate with deep vigor and profound gratitude for the FReedom that has been defended and protected by the sacrifices of generations of courageous Americans.
Truly heaven must be singing, Hallelujah!
He looks so natural in the spotlight.
Just got back from the Independence Ball--Front row!
And GWB TALKED to me!!!
What a night...
Time for a fashion critique. The president, of course, always looks gorgeous. Tuxes are good for him. The color of the first lady's dress is beautiful but in some shots the cut looks a little unflattering. It could be the lighting or something. In other shots, the cut of the dress looks great. Jenna looks gorgeous. That's a great color on her. Barbara's dress is beautiful but the color is really close to her skin tone. Okay, I'm done with my fashion critique. What does everyone else think?
Of them all, I think Laura looks stunning.
PHANCY! PLEASE tell us about it!!
I hope one day to be loved the way Laura is. You can just see it. She is absolutely radiant!
Oh you will Rintense. God bless, it was a wonderful day!
Four More Years! (of the dose)
"I can't believe how beautiful Laura looked today and how handsome and smart our President presented himself. May God bless them and keep them."
AMEN to what you said! What a wonderful day.
I've seen a lot of pics, but can't wait for these.
That's a really good color for her, I think. It makes her eyes look brighter.
There are SOOO many!!! I'm sure the bandwidth on FR tonight is outta control.
p.s. Nice homepage! ;)
1 Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
2Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
3Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
5For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

You have done a wonderful job with these threads over the years! I usually do not post to these threads, but I do visit them when I can. Thanks for taking the time to put all the photos in one place! And thanks to the folks who do it in your absence!
Why thank you!
Thank you to all our wonderful dosers! If I have forgotten anyone, please forgive me.
Thanks for these fantastic pics! Laura looks radiant and regal!
The President's Inaugural Speech was truly awesome and I believe will be regarded as one of the most important ever given.
Oh how I love this one! ;)
I took a photo of a friend of mine who is in Iraq.
And since I was so close up, GWB saw the photo, came to the edge of the stage, and yelled "Give him my best!"
It was SO cool!!
He is such a compassionate President...
