Oh, that's wonderful that your family is well, Suzi!

We will pray for them as they cope with their losses, and recover. God is good!

the emotional competition of the other two.

There should be some sort of rule that when there's a serious event like this, the networks need to leave they're "emotional" reporters in New York. They don't do anyone any good by being "there", least of all themselves.

Mother Sheehan is off all busses on the tour and is back in California.

Pfft. What a difference a week makes.

Is she still planning on protesting the Blue Angels or has she realized how assine that would be? (I doubt it)

I was so pleased that this info finally came out because I was getting tired of hearing about all the Bush-bashing - while the name GOVERNOR was not coming up in the conversation. I told Eleanor at Newsweek that we know she was just trying to cover for the GOVERNOR who DIDN'T DO HER JOB.

That was the delay .. Bush was waiting for her to act - and then he just couldn't wait any longer.

My feelings are that being a practical man, he doesn't see any benefit in holding grudges. I just don't think it's in his heart to do it. He has a good sense of humor and he is very humble. I think his past has caused him to be humble, and everytime he may think badly of someone, he just probably says, "I'm no better than that person. I have no right to judge." That's just what I think goes on in his head, 'cause that's how he acts.

Hi snugs .. my mom went to a nursing home on Wednesday and she's so happy there.

I don't mean to laugh, but they have these little walkers for the elderly patients. It's like the kind you use for your toddler .. they can stand up and walk around, and then when they get tired, they can sit down. Once my mom found out she could get up and walk around and she didn't have to worry about falling down .. she was gone! It's like she's found this new freedom. I get to visit tomorrow for a couple of hours and then I have to wait another couple of days. This is just the policy of the nursing home for new patients. If she doesn't get upset by the visit, then I will be allowed to visit anytime I want; whatever hours are convenient for me.

I'm hoping the extra exercise will help her to sleep better at night.

I'm really upset about the group Shep has been talking about for days. Why those people are being ignored is beyond me.

However .. WHY DOESN'T SHEP GET SOME WATER AND FOOD FOR THEM INSTEAD OF STANDING THERE BAD-MOUTHING THE PRESIDENT.

I read the article (Shreveport Times) and it doesn't say when the mother sheehan will or if she will rejoin the tour.

She can't even get the attention of moveon.org as I'm sure they have run off the bash Bush over NO. Thank goodness she is over!

Hi all. I've been lurking for probably over a year and look forward to the dose as the last thing I do every night. It does my heart good to see the great pics and read your positive posts. I usually get here late after you all have left, but tonight I just had to finally post, whether anyone sees this or not. I watch very little tv news because I can't stomach the Bush bashing either. Thank God we have a strong man like Pres Bush, not a wimpy like me. He has so much compassion for those suffering people, his heart must be breaking by the end of each day. I pray the Lord strengthens him and consoles him, and makes his burdens lighter.

I watched Shep tonight and I didn't think he was bad mouthing the President. I thought he was bad mouthing the Mayor of NO, After all, the Mayor is responsible for all local emergency planning and coordination. The President cannot address the problems that arise when people gather on a bridge away from the relief centers. The Mayor should be on that bridge with those people until they get taken to where they can be helped. Rudi Gulianni would have handled that situation with a single order

My concern is his reporting. Having watched him
over the past few days he doesn't focus as the others
do who have seen a lot also. And a little to much
drama.
If Rudy G was mayor there, probably 90% less problems
and a lot less deaths.

The left would dismiss that article as "Racists" without looking at the facts... The plain truth is... Liberals create Dependants, not self sufficient Americans. To live your life as a Dependant, you never know the dignity of standing on your own two feet and not having to rely on the Government for sustenance.

Without dignity, there can never be integrity, and Liberalism will never provide either, cause they are not gifts, they are earned and honored. Something the Libs will never understand because they simply fear a populace that doesn't rely on them

Thanks for the Dose, Mike, on this .. another unbelievable day in this horrendous catastrophe. I pray God puts a hedge of protection around this good and decent President and his family .. the slings and arrows are just abomidable and will probably get worse.

There's a sick, satanic wind blowing in this country and a race and political war are being incited. We must marshall our prayers ever stronger, for I fear the rhetoric and actions are just going to get meaner, more coarse and outrageous .. there's nothing these charlatans and political enemies won't do to try to tear him down.

No matter what he does or will do in this situation, he does it because it's the right and decent thing to do.... and no matter what he does, the chorus of detractors looms larger and louder. But truth will out ... and the truth in this situation is appalling. I pity the poor people of NO, having the great misfortune of this imbecile for mayor.

All America should be grateful that we've been blessed with this honorable and righteous leader ... God knows how much longer it would've been for the first help to get there if W hadn't declared the area a state of emergency a couple of DAYS BEFORE the storm hit, and got the emergency forces moving into the area and preparing.

I hope the monstrous vermin who've been preventing rescues, shooting at the relief choppers, and menacing, murdering and raping those suffering souls are brought to their knees and made to endure same hell they're creating for others.

Thank God for W!

Could it be because they are in deep water?????

Re: the busses, I am just catching up on this thread so maybe someone else mentioned this. These busses should not even be there, they should have been used to evacuate people before the hurricane hit.

One young man did get a school buss (if it was from this lot or not I do not know) and evacuated 80 people after the storm and took them to Houston.

It has been spiritual warfare since the night of the first election. He must feel like Job. I pray for his strength and protection practically constantly. [for the Lord to give him strength and protection, is what I mean.]

You are so right! I pray for him many times a day. My heart breaks for him when I hear vitriol, hate and the unrelentless criticism that is dumped on him daily. Al (not the sharpest knife in the drawer) Sharpton was on TV today spewing his usual "Bush is a racist" garbage. I am not a violent person, but I have never wanted to smash someones face into a brick wall so badly in my life as I did today. At least after 9/11 it took weeks before these loathsome excuses for human beings started spewing this trash talk. I'm sure GW doesn't have time to look at blogs and websites. But its my hope that he or his aides are aware of our little oasis of sanity here at the dose, and that maybe he even lurks from time to time to get a little morale boost from those of us who love and pray for him and are so grateful that he is at the helm.

I've been saying that for years.... Just look at Florida in the 2000 election. The democrats cried foul in 4 counties, all of which were run by Democrats, but somehow it was the republicans fault for the Ballot, despite the fact that an elected Democrat designed the Ballot.

What's going on in New Orleans is no different, we have a Mayor of New Orleans who couldn't find his own ass with a flash light and a map, if his life depended upon it. The guy couldn't qualify to be a Den Mother of a group of 15 Cub Scouts

But I do hope that most of us think about this when we decide who to elect as Mayor or Governor. I really do think this shows what can happen if you have a weak Mayor and a weak Governor. I really think this would have been very different if Rudy Giuliani had been NO Mayor.,

I was thinking the same thing. What a contrast strong calm Rudy on 9/11 was to these trembling, crying incompetents. I would hate to think what would happen here in Milwaukee with our absentee mayor and a governor whose main talent seems to be grinning like an idiot (Dummies of course).

I never get the impression that Shep is going without food or water, but he sure is watching the people on the bridge go without.

I guess it just seems that if it were me, I would have left that bridge immediately when I saw there was no help. Walking down the road would have been much better than just sitting there. According to Shep that is no longer possible for these people, because authorities are preventing them from going to the next town. But Shep must be able to get out of there. He also screams that he doesn't know where the authorities are right after telling us that they are preventing people from going to the town. Something just isn't making sense to me about the whole scene.
