A Day in the Life of President Bush (photos): 3.15.06
yahoo.com, whitehouse.gov ^ | Wednesday March 15, 2006 | GretchenM

Posted on 03/15/2006 4:44:07 PM PST by GretchenM

The president addressed an audience in Silver Spring, MD, on the benefits of Medicare prescription drug benefit.

Members of Congress met with Bush on his upcoming legislative agenda. Many of the major stock indexes have hit 5 year highs; the Dow Jones 30, the SP 500 included.

Bush attended the Hungarian Celebration of Contributions to Democracy, marking the 50th year since the Hungarian revolution.

QUOTE: The new Medicare bill does something different: it says there is a prescription drug benefit available for all Americans, special help for the lower-income Americans, that seniors have also got the opportunity to make a choice to design a health care plan that best suits their needs.

At the Hungarian gathering: "The Hungarian example is an example of patience, and an example of the fact that freedom exists in everybody's soul. It's an example that tyranny can never stamp out the desire to be free. It's an example that -- of a country that, once becomes free, joins with other freedom-loving countries to keep the peace."

Cheney watches as Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf delivers a speech to a joint meeting of Congress in the U.S. House of Representatives Chamber

Released today, from yesterday. President Bush poses for a photo with Venezuelan baseball players Tuesday on the South Lawn. The players were guests at the arrival of Marine One after the President's trip to New York. The group is here on a State Department-funded International Sports Exchange centered around a shared passion of baseball and the inaugural World Baseball Classic.

More photos from Tuesday: Bush is joined at the Rochester, N.Y., International Airport by family members of Marine Corporal Jason L.

Dunham Post Office. From left to right are Jason's brother, Kyle James Dunham; sister, Katie; parents, Dan and Deb Dunham, and U.S. Rep. John R. "Randy" Kuhl, Jr., R-N.Y.

Did you hear the speech the Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf made? It was incredible and she particularly thanked President Bush.

Since he can't see too well, now we know why he's so stupid.

I better add: /sarcasm (for those who can't see it).

As ohioWfan can attest --- just the thought of me being suspended gives pleasure to detractors of POTUS...lol.
