Welcome to Sanity Island!
QUOTE: "To achieve victory over such enemies, we are pursuing a comprehensive strategy in Iraq. Americans should have a clear understanding of ... how we look at the war, how we see the enemy, how we define victory, and what we're doing to achieve it. So today, we're releasing a document called the "National Strategy for Victory in Iraq." This is an unclassified version of the strategy we've been pursuing in Iraq ... I urge all Americans to read it." Click here to read it.

Listening to Bush's speech
Gretchen, that is beautiful.
Gretchen, A WONDERFUL Dose this evening.. thank you so much! Love our man of a thousand expressions.. and although he is showing fatigue & stress & aging, he is still a handsome & strong presence.
CSPAN doesn't show a replay of the speech... anyone heard if there will be one? Is there a posting anywhere of the speech? I heard just part of it before I had to leave for bible study today.

The Christmas tree in the Blue Room of the White House Wednesday. With table centerpieces of fresh tangerines and lemon leaves, and Christmas trees decorated with real roses and lilacs, the White House is taking a fresh and natural approach to the 2005 holiday season.
Thanks, Gretchen! That was an excellent speech today, and I am sure glad I got to hear it!

I love this picture of Rummmy....I just got here from a thread where Billy Kristol is still asking for Rummy to be replaced...
now, he wants him replaced by Joe Lieberman...
Hi GM .. and thanks for the pics from such a great day. I SO wish I could've seen this live .. cubicle bound. Do you know if it will be replayed in its entirety?
They Cheneys arrive for a performance after a dinner to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, in the East Room November 10, 2005. The NEA and NEH support research, education and public programs for the arts and humanities. (I love Lynne's outfit.)
Feel free to post others you may find.
What wonderful photos you have to work with tonight. I am anxiously awaiting 8:00 to watch our awesome President, the Commander in Chief, address his troops, again!
What terrific job he did today, and does everyday!! God Bless him.
Hi bnelson44, just wanted to draw your attention to the note at post #2. It gets confusing to the person who puts up the thread, otherwise.
Lynn Cheney is on Cspan-2 now at the National Archives, talking about her book, "A Time For Freedom."
Hello, Dolly. How is your elbow? My knee seemsto be completely healed and I am riding my bicycle as much as I want to.
Well, I have a sprained groin.. into 6th week.. It is better but still painful.. At my age there are so many aches & pains. I just pump in the excedrin often during day & plug along! I do have to do mega walks w/dogs daily & have gotten in a few rides wtih them.. Biking doesn't hurt.. walking /standing does.
Glad you are healed already! impressive!
Thank you, Gretchen. These pictures of our President give me goosebumps.
I didn't see a link at the WH web site although one may appear later - maybe check C-SPAN online?
Justa, what station will replay W's speech at 8 PM (is that Eastern time?)
I agree 100 percent, and "disarming" is absolutely the right word.
is that what you call it?
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier - LOL - The man looks like he is very smitten by Condi.
Well, folks, I apologize for the typos; I had to slap this together without much time to proof it. Sabrina is waiting for her tutoring.
Hope to be back later.
Enjoy! Some great photos today.
Thanks, Dolly. ;-)
I wish I could package this contentment and joy and send it to every one of you out there in Free Republicland.
It was posted on the live thread this AM that it would be C-span, I think. I may not be reading their schedule correctly, but I am not seeing it.
How is everyone?
I have a quick question...someone mentioned getting a letter from the President right before (or just after) Christmas last year and wondered if it was bona fide or computer generated...although it was hand written...who was that? I would love to compare.
Our President was FABULOUS!
Good evening Gretchen thanks for the dose
Toaster winner what would you like?
What animal is the mascot? Is it a cow?
Thank you so much for the link to Gretchen's move which I hadn't seen before. I was looking for a picture of Sabrina but did not see one. Gretchen, I hope you can show us a picture of Sabrina sometime.
