Posted on 09/02/2005 5:31:17 PM PDT by MJY1288
Today President Bush toured the Gulf Coast states of Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana and and did his best to comfort the victims of the most destructive natural disaster in the history of the United States
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I want you to know that I'm not going to forget what I've seen. I understand the devastation requires more than one day's attention. It's going to require the attention of this country for a long period of time. ... And therefore, there will be a national response. And I look forward to continuing to work with the governor and the mayor and the members of the Senate and the House of Representatives to do our duty to help the good folks of this part of the world get back on their feet."
A day for cheers for our national guard and tears for our country.
Our President did us proud today.

Those are a wonderful set of photos I saw the news footage of those earlier he is such a natural with people who are suffering.
So did his wife.
Wow.......just wow. You know if he could have the President would have held every single person down there.
My son was watching this with me today and when he saw the President with his arms crossed he said, "Mom, the President is angry about something. "
She always does.
I'm certain he is snugs, and he will do whatever it takes to make things right. The emtion will fuel his determination.
There has not been one day, and not even one moment, when I have not been Proud, that George W. Bush is our President. Thank you President Bush, for your strength, your faith, and your hard work. They say, that crisis brings out the worst or the best in people. We have certainly seen the best from President George W. Bush in crisis. I am glad he has courage, and glad that American's can lean on him. I am Greatful that President Bush has Laura Bush to draw strength from, and thankful for President Bush's parents, and his strong supportive family and thankful that President Bush draws strength from our Prayers. <p.
We will not tire, we will not falter, we will not fail! Praise be to God!

g'day Mike. Thank you for posting the Dose today. The President is one genuine, kind, compassionate man - those photos today - well lemme just say I was reaching for the tissues as my vision got a little fogged up.
How are your Mom and Dad? Is his throat infection better?
The President IS angry because it came out tonight that he BEGGED the gov of that state to please get the people out days before the hurricane hit and she DIDN'T!!!!!! He waited for her to get her act together and then he took over when it was clear that she didn't know what to do. THAT WAS FROM COL. HUNT ON O'REILLY TONIGHT!!!
Think dad's throat is clearing up a friend of mum's visited her today she is OK but trying to get the strapping off.
Oh I missed that! Did you hear that the mayor let some tourists and elites get on the last bus out of NO ahead of some elderly people and sick children? The governor is incompetent but the mayor is just self-serving.
Thank you for documenting a great day. Any pics of Laura? She was shown at a shelter in Lafayette, LA, and spoke to the media. Dunces that they were...
