A Day in the Life of President Bush (12/31/05): New Year's Memories
White House ^ | 12/31/05

Posted on 12/31/2005 3:01:38 PM PST by Wolfstar

PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: President Bush, the First Lady, the dogs and cat, and their family are spending the New Year's holiday at their Texas ranch.

On this New Year's Eve, 2005, although mindful of those who will not continue the journey with us into 2006, it seemed to me we should celebrate happy times. That is the theme of this last Dose thread of 2005.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, to all. May your 2006 be healthy, happy and full of love.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: From the first Inaugural Address of President George W. Bush, January 20, 2001.

Americans are generous and strong and decent, not because we believe in ourselves, but because we hold beliefs beyond ourselves. When this spirit of citizenship is missing, no government program can replace it. When this spirit is present, no wrong can stand against it.

After the Declaration of Independence was signed, Virginia statesman John Page wrote to Thomas Jefferson: ``We know the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong. Do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?''

Much time has passed since Jefferson arrived for his inauguration. The years and changes accumulate. But the themes of this day he would know: our nation's grand story of courage and its simple dream of dignity.

We are not this story's author, who fills time and eternity with his purpose. Yet his purpose is achieved in our duty, and our duty is fulfilled in service to one another.

Never tiring, never yielding, never finishing, we renew that purpose today, to make our country more just and generous, to affirm the dignity of our lives and every life.

This work continues. This story goes on. And an angel still rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm.

On another thread a couple of days ago with an article about President Bush's stoicism, I posted the great poem, IF. To me, it almost seems as though Kipling wrote IF for George W. Bush, so I post it here in tribute to the President we on the Dose admire so much.

IF, by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

PHOTO OF THE DAY: President Bush and Mrs. Bush view the U.S. Constitution with National Archivist John Carlin, left, and Senior Curator Stacy Bredhoff, while touring the National Archives in Washington, D.C., Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2005, the day before his 2nd Inaugural.

Although all other oaths of office for elected officials in the U.S., only the presidential Oath of Office is mandated by the Constitution:

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:--"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Whatever else can be said of GWB, this man most assuredly executes the Office of President of the United States faithfully.

A sea of onlookers witness the second swearing-in ceremony of President George W. Bush at the U.S. Capitol, Jan. 20, 2005.

"From all of you, I have asked patience in the hard task of securing America, which you have granted in good measure," President Bush said in his 2nd Inaugural Address. "Our country has accepted obligations that are difficult to fulfill, and would be dishonorable to abandon. Yet because we have acted in the great liberating tradition of this nation, tens of millions have achieved their freedom."

GWB gives a thumbs-up to the crowd at one of the inaugural balls in Washington D.C., Jan. 20, 2001. (As I post this, I'm listening to a Christmas present -- one of three Willie Nelson albums I received. The song currently playing is "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys.")

As a Chicago Cubs radio broadcaster in the mid-1930s for an Iowa station, President Ronald Reagan was an astute baseball spectator. He made several guest trips back to the radio booth, both during and after his presidency.

As a Yale standout who once caught the eye of a professional scout, President George H.W. Bush was fascinated with the game of baseball.

Yale student George H.W. Bush shakes the hand of the legendary Babe Ruth. (Ruth looked ill in this photo.)

From his biography at the official website dedicated to Babe Ruth:

In the fall of 1946, Babe was diagnosed with throat cancer and spent three months in the hospital. The operations impaired his voice, caused him to lose 80 pounds, and rendered him nearly immobile. The following year April 27 was declared Babe Ruth Day for every organized baseball league in the U.S. and Japan. Babe’s health continued to decline and on June 13, 1948 he made his last appearance at the stadium where his legend was born. On the 25th anniversary of the opening of Yankee Stadium the Yankees honored the player that made them the most recognizable team in the world by retiring his number 3. This would be the last time the Babe was ever seen in the famous pinstripes.

Babe Ruth died on August 16, 1948 at Memorial Hospital in New York City at age 53. His body lay in state at the entrance of Yankee Stadium on August 17 and 18, where over 100,000 people came to pay their final respects. Thousands of fans surrounded New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the route to the Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, New York on the day of his funeral, as the world mourned the passing of Babe Ruth.

When she was First Lady of Texas, Laura Bush founded the annual Texas State Book Festival. Shortly after she became the nation's First Lady, she began plans to start an annual National Book Festival. The first one was scheduled to take place in September 2001. She persevered and the event is now a highlight of the late summer--early fall season in Washingon.

Golden State Warrior Baron Davis, left, and Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi, right, present Laura Bush with a basketball jersey at the National Book Festival Author's breakfast in the East Room Saturday, Sept. 24, 2005.

Laura Bush speaks at the National Book Festival Author's breakfast in the East Room, Sept. 24, 2005. "Great books have brought many people through difficult times," said Mrs. Bush, explaining that the Book Festival is collecting books for schools, libraries and those affected by the recent hurricanes. "A story's setting -- real or imagined -- can provide a much-needed escape. And the characters in a good book are like old friends by the time we turn the final page."

Accompanied by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the First Lady attends the National Book Festival Gala, an annual celebration of books and literature, at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., Friday, Sept. 23, 2005.

Looking at the photo of George and Laura leading the Inaugural Day parade, I got the impression that President Bush honestly is more concerned, and takes more care, about Laura's safety (and their twins') than his own. He knows that they are brought into the public place, and the hot seat that attracts hostility, because of their relationships to him, whereas he chose his course.
