QUOTE OF THE DAY
President Bush Welcomes Chancellor Merkel of Germany to the White House
Cross Hall

PRESIDENT BUSH: Madam Chancellor, thank you. Welcome back to Washington. It's good to welcome you here to the White House. And Laura and I are looking forward to feeding you dinner. I'm not so sure it's going to be as good a dinner as the barbecue you fed us -- (laughter) -- but we'll try.

This new year marks the beginning of Germany's presidency of both the EU and the G8. And we just had a wide-ranging discussion about a lot of issues. We talked about the Chancellor's ambitious agenda for both those leadership roles. We discussed how we can continue to work together to promote prosperity and security and peace.

We spent time talking about Afghanistan, and I appreciate very much, Madam Chancellor, your support for the people of Afghanistan. You take your NATO commitments seriously. We're proud to serve alongside such a strong ally.

We talked about Iran, and I thanked Chancellor Merkel's strong support for a Chapter 7 Iranian -- Chapter 7 United Nations Security Council resolution on Iran. It was an important message to send Iran, that the free world wants there to be a peaceful future. And we don't see a peaceful future with the Iranians developing a nuclear weapon. And so I want to thank you for your leadership, Madam Chancellor. We're going to continue to work together on the Iranian issue. It's important for us to follow through in order -- on this Chapter 7 resolution in order to solve this issue peacefully.

We talked about the Israeli-Palestinian issue. And Madam Chancellor had a good idea to convene the Quartet, which I agreed to. I think the Quartet ought to meet at an appropriate time. Condoleezza Rice will be going to the Middle East here shortly. She'll come back to report to not only me but also to the Chancellor, about how we can move the process forward. We're committed -- strongly committed to a two-state solution with Israeli and Palestine living side by side in peace, two democracies supporting each other's rights to exist. I'm optimistic that we can achieve that objective; I'm looking forward to working with the Chancellor to do so.

CHANCELLOR MERKEL: (As translated) .............

Obviously, we also talked about the situation in Iraq. Allow me to say although Germany is not militarily present in Iraq, we have every interest in seeing Iraq taking a turn for a more peaceful development, where people no longer need to be in fear of their lives, and that politically we shall do everything we can in order to give support to such a positive development.

Well, my impression is that over the next six months during our presidency there is a lot on the agenda. There are a lot of common interests, as a I said, and a lot of areas where I feel we can tackle problems together. And I think this dialogue is just the beginning of a very intensive dialogue we shall continue to have during our presidency -- this is, after all, a sixth meeting already. So I think we may safely speak of a continuous exchange of views. Thank you yet again for the invitation, Mr. President.

Dose going up please wait for the all clear before posting or reposting any photos or graphics

For those who missed it earlier this week I did a sort of dose review in photos of 2006 the url follows for this thread. If you are dial up I suggest that this maybe too photo intensive for you.

Hey snugs - great job on The Dose again, tonight!

SuziQ - TIE ANALYSIS....I BET you W wore the polka dot tie today, out of respect for womanhood. W's Mom is big on polka dots--thus it would be a big compliment to wear something that reminds you of dear YOUNG Mom (I did that for you Barbara!). I also bet you that W likes and respects the German Chancellor, which is why he chose this tie, today.

Just MHO...

I thought so to and the way he looked at the lad and was obviously talking to him not just the cursory signing of the cast that many adults do but not really taking much notice of the child wearing it.

Did you see it live, I did 42 would not stop talking to the VP and kept patting his arm it was hilarious. I think Hilliary got fed up in the end and walked off there is a photo of the VP and 42 still talking and Hilliary walking LOL.

I got the impression from the TV footage that also the VP seemed to want to say something to 42 it may well have been to do with President Ford or the funeral as they did seem in quite deep conversation. Also the VP actually patted him on the arm as well.

Okay. My sleeping has been kind of off. I ended up being awake all night and then falling asleep a little while ago. I woke up when my mom came in the den to turn off the light. I've been avoiding moving much but I think I'm gonna start trying to walk on it tomorrow.
