PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: President Bush, as he readied the federal government for a massive relief effort, on Sunday urged people in the path of Hurricane Katrina to forget anything but their safety and move to higher ground as instructed.

"We cannot stress enough the danger this hurricane poses to Gulf Coast communities," Bush said as the storm roared across the gulf toward New Orleans and other communities. "I urge all citizens to put their own safety and the safety of their families first by moving to safe ground."

With forecasters warning of a category five storm, the president made sure the federal response would not be delayed by already declaring emergencies in Mississippi and Florida just hours after a similar declaration for Louisiana. Such declarations make federal aid available to assist with disaster relief, but they are rarely made before a storm even hits.

Working from his Texas ranch, Bush participated via videoconference in a large meeting of federal, state and local disaster management officials preparing for the storm's onslaught. Separately, he spoke by phone with the governors of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

The President also spok about Iraq and asked the nation for patience regarding the Iraq War as the Iraqis work toward ratification of their constitution.

THE WEEK AHEAD: The President's schedule is subject to change due to Hurricane Katrina. As of now, his schedule remains as announced. President Bush will stop in Arizona on his way to Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino County, Clifornia on Monday. In both states, GWB will discuss a new Medicare reform program.

On Tuesday, President Bush will deliver a speech at North Island Naval Air Station in San Diego, California. The speech will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Japanese surrender aboard the battleship Missouri in Tokyo Bay on Sept. 2, 1945, to end World War II. He is expected to draw comparisons between Japan in 1945 and Iraq in 2005, as the latter works toward achieving a constitutional democracy.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: The President makes a statement about Hurricane Katrina and the Iraqi constitution, August 28, 2005. Although he's tanned, he still looks a bit drawn and tired, probably due to tracking Hurrican Katrina. He is getting updates every hour, at minimum, as the storm appears headed directly for New Orleans. The Mayor of New Orleans said everyone should look at the major landmarks in the city, because they may no longer be there in a couple of days. In all likelihood, most of the oil-drilling platforms in the gulf will be destroyed, further driving up the price of oil. In addition, New Orleans is one of the nation's major ports, and damage to the port facilities there will have a significant impact on the regional and national economies.

President Bush arrives to speak to reporters from the hangar at his Crawford, Texas, ranch. Bush on Sunday downplayed the opposition from Iraq's minority Sunni Arabs to that war-torn country's new constitution, which is up for a 15 October referendum.

Yahoo posted this file photo today, using it as a hook for a caption about the Iraqi situation. The caption, of course, was a sly slap at the President. Yahoo's catpion: "US President George W. Bush downplayed the opposition from Iraq's minority Sunni Arabs to that war-torn country's new constitution, which is up for an October 15 referendum." Yahoo did not mention the date the photo was taken.

Yahoo actually acknolwedged that the "several thousand" demonstrators who went to Crawford yesterday were pro-Bush. Yahoo's caption: "Pro-Bush supports walk past white memorial crosses at the original Camp Casey, Saturday, Aug. 27, 2005. Several thousand people descended on President Bush's adopted hometown Saturday, most in a cross-country caravan for a pro-Bush rally and others to support an anti-war demonstration led by grieving mother Cindy."

A young pro-Bush supporter watches during a pro-Bush rally outside the Crawford Community Center in Crawford, TX. Tensions mounted in President George W. Bush's hometown, as a small army of his supporters poured in to challenge demonstrators opposed to the war in Iraq.
