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."

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!

Thanks, Mike. I knew there would be great pictures today. I am not making light--but I knew that GWB would make us proud as he attempted to comfort the suffering. I have tears in my eyes.

Thanks.

This isn't a dose picture but one that I found funny, this American still has his sense of humor in all of the devastation. But at the same time you know you better take him serious.

snugs, thanks for adding these photos. Shep and Geraldo are emotional but it is not even close to what the President emotes. That man sure has a way about him!

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!!!

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.
