After urging the spread of democracy in Latvia, The Netherlands, Russia and Georgia, President (and Laura) Bush returned to the White House. The president will resume work with Congress on Social Security and judicial nominees, as well as seeking help from China on getting North Korea back to negotiations on its nuclear weapons program.

QUOTE: [in Georgia] As you build freedom in this country, you must know that the seeds of liberty you are planting in Georgian soil are flowering across the globe. I have come here to thank you for your courage. The American people value your friendship, and admire your determination. On behalf of all Americans, thank you, God bless you.

The [Georgian] Rose Revolution was a powerful moment in modern history. It not only inspired the people of Georgia, it inspired others around the world that want to live in a free society. I think people will look back at this moment in history and ... marvel at the courage of people who have said, I want generations to grow up in a hopeful world.

Oh, very, very cool, Gretchen. Thanks for putting that photo of Barney greeting George and Laura first tonight. I'm so relieved they are home safe and sound. Did you hear about the grenade that was tossed 100 feet from GWB in Georgia. The pin was pulled, but the Georgian security forces grabbed it before it could go off.

After arriving back at the White House, Chief of Staff Andrew Card is questioned by reporters about reports of a hand grenade being thrown at President Bush while he was speaking in Tbilisi


Being greeted by Georgia's president and his wife

Bush shakes hand with Georgia's first lady Sandra Rulovs (R) as Georgia's President Mikhail Saakashvili (2nd R) greets Laura Bush during a welcoming ceremony in the courtyard of Georgia's Parliament in Tbilisi, May 10. Bush gave backing to ex-Soviet Georgia in its efforts regain sovereignty over two pro-Moscow separatist regions, as long as it was done peacefully.

with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili.

A U.S. appeals court on May 10 2005 threw out a lawsuit that sought details about Cheney's 2001 energy policy task force. The unanimous ruling ordered a federal judge to dismiss the lawsuit by the Sierra Club environmental group and Judicial Watch that sought to learn about contacts between task force members and industry executives.

I heard the story and I don't know if I buy it quite yet...it could be true, but our SS haven't even had a chance to inspect the item yet and I'm skeptical that they had no idea about the incident until after they left Georgia.
They have a pretty close watch over GWB, if something was within 100 ft, I think they would know about it.

At any rate, I'm glad he's home safe. But I'm a little wary of the media hype regarding the "grenade"...

Yeah, I think your right. I thought it was Barney at first, but it looks like Beezie. Notice who she went to first. Looks like GWB has taken over his wife's dog -- again. LOL!

I have not watched any news tonight or today. I didn't hear about the grenade. How frightening! I am so glad he and Laura are safe. Was there a thread about the grenade?

Thanks for the pictures. Thank goodness they are home safe and sound. That grenade incident takes the bloom off the rose of what sounds like an otherwise glorious visit in Georgia.

Looks like the puppy got her first adult clip while the first couple were away. Also looks like she overshot her mark and ran straight between GWB's legs. Very cute.

Thousands gather in Freedom Square to hear President George W. Bush speak in Tbilisi, Georgia, Tuesday, May 10, 2005. "When Georgians gathered here 16 years ago, this square had a different name. Under Lenin's steely gaze, thousands of Georgians prayed and sang, and demanded their independence, said President Bush. "The Soviet army crushed that day of protest, but they could not crush the spirit of the Georgian people."

Laura Bush waves to the crowd as she walks with Sandra Roelofs the wife of the Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili prior to Pres. Bush's speech in Freedom Square in Tbilisi, Tuesday

YIPPEEEEE!!!! A win for the good guys for a change. (Have I mentioned lately that I think Judicial Watch is a useless sack of something which shall not be named?)
