A day in the life of President Bush (10/1/06): photos & news
WhiteHouse.gov & Yahoo News ^ | 10/1/06

Posted on 10/01/2006 2:32:57 PM PDT by Wolfstar

PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: With the First Lady involved in events related to the National Book Festival this weekend, the President spent Saturday at Camp David where he enjoys the more challenging mountain bike riding trails. Yesterday, an article by Laura Bush (her preferred way of being addressed) appeared in the Opinion Journal of The Wall Street Journal. In it, the First Lady discusses the books that inspired her to champion literacy. Here's a link to the article, and following is the list of the books that inspired her, in the order she ranks them:

1. "Hop on Pop" by Dr. Seuss (Random House, 1963).

2. The "Little House" Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder (Harper, 1932-43).

3. "The Brothers Karamazov" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1880).

4. "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott (1868).

5. "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain (1884).

In the meantime, President Bush is set to campaign heavily for Republican candidates between now and election day. Tomorrow he beings a three-day swing through Nevada, California, Arizona and Colorado. White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said GWB will be on the road almost constantly between now and Election Day. "You're going to see a very active travel schedule. He's going to be all over the country campaigning for Republicans," Snow said at a recent breakfast. "There are a lot of candidates saying, 'Please, please, please, come to my district or come to my state.'"

The First Lady and Vice President Cheney have already been on a heavy campaign schedule. Now, with just over a month left in the mid-term campaign, the President will join them on the campaign trail.

The President will also visit a school campus in Washington, and make remarks on No Child Left Behind. He President also will meet with the National Commander of the American Legion in the Oval Office.

TO THE DOSE COMMUNITY: Common Tator, one of FR's long-time bright lights, was in an auto accident as a result of suffering a seizure. He has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, the cause of his seizure. His last post was Sept. 25, and FReepers close to him have only just found out about what happened. Here is a link to the prayer and best-wishes thread for Common Tator: focus/f-news/1711690/posts?page=19#1

Thanks, mystery-ak for bring this sad news to my attention so I could post it on today's Dose.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: I really like this photo, so even though it was taken Friday night as the President and Mrs. Bush attended the annual National Book Festival gala at the Library of Congress, I'm making it today's photo of the day.

Anyone who can look like that while watching Bob Woodward get honored for his latest book deserves our respect.

Marine One (right, with President Bush on board, arrives at the White House as a backup helicopter flies by the Jefferson Memorial in Washington this morning. GWB returned to the White House after spending Saturday at Camp David.

The President walking across the South Lawn accompanied by...could it be our birthday boy, Barney, in the center of the photo?

Looking fit and handsome, Dubya waves to...well, Yahoo says its reporters, but I'd prefer to think it's supporters. ;-)

Although the Yahoo caption doesn't say (or even identify the people), one imagines this is a proud grandma pointing out her grandson to the President of the United States.

So Dubya, kind as ever, pats the boy's head.

This image provided by the Navy shows more than 70 Medal of Honor recipients gather for a group photo in front of USS Constitution, the world's oldest commissioned warship afloat. The occasion was a turnaround cruise and Medal of Honor flag presentation in Boston Harbor, Saturday, Sept. 30, 2006. In order for the 200-yr-old ship to weather evenly, she is regularly sailed out into Boston Harbor, turned around, and remoored with a different side facing seaward.

The Medal of Honor flag was created by an Act of Congress and signed into law by President George W. Bush Oct. 23, 2002. Each service was charged with presenting the flag to its recipients in an appropriate ceremonial manner. The flag can only be presented to a Medal of Honor recipient or a recipient's primary next of kin by a top-ranking member of the armed forces. The Medal of Honor is our country's highest military honor, awarded for acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty. (AP Photo/U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Chad J. McNeeley)

Happy Birthday, Barney!

In celebration of Barney's 6th birthday, here are a few of my favorite photos of our little Scottish friend. :)

Thinking of certain Dimocrat body parts, Barney nudges a golf ball on the Oval Office Rug.

Always guarding his Boss' back, Barney looks out the window of the Oval Office.

He also helps the President greet visitors to the Oval Office.

Barney and his red ball. A classic portrait of our favorite Scottie.

Barney laughs uproariously at the thought of Ted Kennedy ever visiting the WH again on his watch.

Waiting for The Boss to pitch a horseshoe.

Barney, bored with all the bloviating in Washington, won't be sorry to head back to Texas in January of '09.

He's even offered to drive the truck home.

Barney waits for the President outside the Oval Office. There's no better metaphor for the loneliness of the presidency than this photo.

Miss Beasley joins the family and, like women the world over, quickly learns to scold the man of the house.

Not only does she nip and nag him, but she steals Barney's soccer balls.

But Beezie doesn't know how to moonwalk like Barney does.

From a letter to the White House addressed to Barney, and Barney's reply:

NAME: Jamie
LOCATION: Goleta, California

Dear Barney
My 2 German Shepherds wanted me to ask you the following:
How do you do all this amazing stuff when you don't have opposable thumbs?
-- Jamie

Dear Jamie

Thumbs are overrated.

Thanks, Wolfstar. Your Barney captions reminded me that we have only two more years of President Bush. WHile I will miss him dreadfully, I hope he enjoys his retirement in Crawford, and Jenna and Barbara hurry up and get married and give him grandchildren.

Great choice of photo, Wolfstar.

Isn't that a great photo. Cicero, I didn't know Woodward was being honored at the moment that photo was taken. Maybe that explains the slightly ironic expression on GWB's face.
