A Day in the Life of President Bush: 1-16-07
White House.gov and other sources ^ | January 16, 2007

Posted on 01/16/2007 5:39:58 PM PST by Just A Nobody

President Bush met with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in the Oval Office today.

President Bush also welcomed the World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals to the White House this afternoon.

Vice President Cheney was at the Pentagon speaking at the naming ceremony of the USS Gerald R Ford.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice continues her travels and meetings in the mid-east.

First Lady Laura Bush continues her three-day visit to France, touring a number of landmarks in Paris.


President Bush declares today 'Religious Freedom Day'

President Bush has proclaimed today (Tuesday January 16th) as "Religious Freedom Day." In the presidential proclamation, Bush said today commemorates the passage of the 1786 Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, which was written by Thomas Jefferson, and to celebrate the First Amendment's protection of the right to worship freely.

The proclamation notes that people in other parts of the world don't enjoy the same liberty, and many face religious persecution. Bush calls the freedom of worship" a gift from the Almighty", and he says the United States, quote, "Must continue to promote the importance of religious freedom at home and abroad."

QUOTE OF THE DAY:
President Bush Meets with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon
The Oval Office

PRESIDENT BUSH: Mr. Secretary General, welcome. The last time I visited with you in this Oval Office, you were the Foreign Minister of an important country. Now you come representing the United Nations, and I welcome you. Thank you for your willingness to serve. Thank you for this very important discussion we just had. I appreciate so very much how you opened up the discussion with a strong commitment to democracy and freedom. And the United States is willing -- wants to work with the United Nations to achieve a peace through the spread of freedom.

President Bush embraces Marine Lance Cpl. Chad Watson of Mt. Zion, Ill., who lost his lower right leg in Iraq , during a ceremony honoring the 2006 World Series Champions St. Louis Cardinals , Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2007 in the East Room of the White House in Washington. Bush, who presented Watson, a Cardinals fan, with a Purple Heart at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, made good on a promise to bring him to the White House for the East Room ceremony.



I had the honor and privilege to finally meet Chad Friday night. I had met his mom and sister several weeks ago when they first arrived at Walter Reed.

Chad is breaking all records with his physical therapy and healing process. He was awaiting the arrival of his girlfriend (a real beauty, I might add) and was doing wheelies in his wheelchair as he stared at the door.

Chad was so excited to have the opportunity to see the President again. He could hardly believe that President Bush would remember the promise he made to Chad a couple of weeks ago.

His mom was in a panic over what to wear. When she packed to come to DC, she was not thinking about clothing. They were all very excited to be at the White House with the President

Vice President's Remarks at the Naming Ceremony of the USS Gerald R. Ford

I've been looking forward to this gathering of friends and colleagues, and President Bush asked me to come this morning and extend his good wishes to everybody, as well.

If the purpose of naming an aircraft carrier is to convey the confident spirit of our military, and the good and just causes that America serves in the world, then we have certainly accomplished that purpose here today. The name Gerald R. Ford belonged to a man who gave a lifetime of devoted service to our country, reflecting honor on the United States Navy, on the House of Representatives, on the Vice Presidency, and on the Presidency. The naming of a carrier is a fitting tribute to the man, and it's thrilling for all of his family and friends.
