A day (actually 2 yrs) in the life of President Bush (8/13/05): many photos
WhiteHouse.gov ^ | 8/16/05

Posted on 08/13/2005 1:50:50 PM PDT by Wolfstar

PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: While the President, First Lady and the dogs were relaxing at their ranch today two pieces of blog-related news surfaced having nothing to do with his stance on speaking with Iraq War protesters, or his polices, or whether or not Judge Roberts will be confirmed. This news is considerably less political.

You see, The President is now doing one of the hippest things on the planet -- the President is podcasting!

In the meantime, a hoax claiming that the President and a number of his administration officials had been indicted became the #1 search term on the blog indexing service Technorati today. This is an example of a new form of political war -- the netwar -- and fellow FReepers should be aware of the ease with which such disinformation can be cooked up and spread. There is no real news, but activists are able to perform culture disinformation and jamming activities which exploit inherent vulnerabilities in search engines.

THE WEEK AHEAD: There were only a few WH press briefings this week, and none yesterday. So no scheduling info is available today.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: From the Presidential Radio Address, Saturday, August 13, 2005:

The recent violence in Iraq is a grim reminder of the brutal nature of the enemy we face in the war on terror. Our mission in Iraq is tough because the enemy understands the stakes. The terrorists know that a free Iraq in the heart of the Middle East will be a crippling blow to their hateful ideology. And that is why our work in Iraq is a vital part of the war on terror we're waging around the world.

This war on terror arrived on our shores on September the 11th, 2001. Since that day, the terrorists have continued to kill -- in Madrid, Istanbul, Jakarta, Casablanca, Riyadh, Bali, Baghdad, London, and elsewhere. The enemy remains determined to do more harm. The terrorists kill indiscriminately, but with a clear purpose -- they're trying to shake our will. They want to force free nations to retreat so they can topple governments across the Middle East, establish Taliban-like regimes in their place, and turn the Middle East into a launching pad for attacks against free people.

The terrorists cannot defeat us on the battlefield. The only way they can win is if we lose our nerve. That will not happen on my watch. Withdrawing our troops from Iraq prematurely would betray the Iraqi people, and would cause others to question America's commitment to spreading freedom and winning the war on terror. So we will honor the fallen by completing the mission for which they gave their lives, and by doing so we will ensure that freedom and peace prevail.

DUMB MEDIA QUESTION OF THE WEEK: From the Press Gaggle conducted by Deputy WH Press Secretary Trent Duffy, August 8.
Q: Why won't the President meet with her? I mean, she's camped outside -- I mean, is he at all worried that he's got this mother, someone who lost a kid in Iraq, she's camped out in front of the ranch, both -- I mean, from a PR side of things, but also the substantive -- listening to her -- I mean, why won't he meet with her?

MR. DUFFY: The President did meet with her in June of 2004; he's met with hundreds of families of the fallen. They are private meetings. And he was glad to meet with her at that time. We always mourn the loss of every life. And as I said, he's met with hundreds of families of the fallen.

WOLFSTAR's ANSWER: Anyone who uses "I mean" four times in one question doesn't deserve an answer. Now dry your crocodile tears, shut your whiny mouth and sit down.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: A rare photo taken very early on the morning of September 11, 2001 approximately three hours before the attacks. The President had gone for a pre-dawn workout at the Longboat Key Club in Sarasota, Florida, and was returning to his suite. He would visit the Emma E. Booker Elementary School later that morning...and step into history.

The President looks the way I feel. I'm posting from a conference in sunny Omaha.

Let me just say that the mild Seattle weather has ruined me for heat and humidity.

I miss my Dose buddies. All people talk about here are computers. Tho I guess I should be thankful. Being computer nerds, no one has said anything nasty about the Administration like at other academic conferences I've been to. : )

You got me weeping here....

For anyone to claim this man doesn't care.....I say look into this man's eyes, look at his enthusiasm when he meets the crowds, look at him weep when he consoles family member, look at his joy when he's around children.

This man has a soul...this man cares...

It breaks my heart for people to say otherwise.

Indeed it is the same with the Vice President the media and many of the Democrats paint him as this evil dark figure when IMHO all he has ever wanted to do is serve his country to the best of his ability. These people do not understand men who want to serve they are always looking for ulterior motives and if they cannot find them they invent them.
