Quote of the Day

One of the most enjoyable things I do as the President is to hear stories of my fellow citizens -- stories of compassion, stories of care. I just talked to social entrepreneurs who have decided to help improve the lives of our servicemen and women and their families. There are some remarkable acts of kindness by people who have taken it upon themselves to serve their country by helping a neighbor in need. Whether it be helping the chaplains help kids, or whether it be helping a family of the injured, whether it be working at Walter Reed or supporting troops getting ready to go into combat, these good men and women really represent the very best of America.

I ask my fellow citizens to support our troops and their families. There are all kinds of ways you can find out how to do so. AmericaSupportsYou.mil, for example, is a website that if you really do want to participate like these citizens have, that you can find a way to contribute your time or your money, your talents, to really send a message that America supports these brave volunteers who are out defending their country in the war on terror.

So I thank you all for joining us. It's been my great pleasure to hear from you. I'm proud to be the President of a country with so many decent citizens.

Whenever I am sick, the very first thing I get hungry for is...(don't laugh)

Lipton's Chicken Noodle soup that comes in a box, and you add water...

For some reason, that is usually the first thing that tastes good to me.

Hiya ((( Carolinamom ))) --- I am go grateful to be able to post the Dose today. As of yesterday, even the thought of typing wore me out.

MUST READ . . .

NEGOTIATE WITH IRAN?
By Mark Noonan at 12:05 PM

It is in the news, and NRO is blowing a gasket over it - the story is that the United States is going to enter into negotiations with Iran and Syria...and, of course, this means we're surrendering in the War on Terrorism and other gloom-and-doom scenarios on the right.

Looking that the State Department press briefing, however, I just don't see that - Iraq has called for a regional conference (two of them, actually) at which Iran and Syria will be present along with other nations concerned, including the United States. We don't rule out sitting down to talk one on one, but that is also not something that is scheduled or will actually happen...it is just leaving the door open, depending on circumstances, for us to talk and see if there is any way to work a deal...and it is good to keep in mind that Iran is broke, and under increasing internal strain. They might be ready to quit - especially if they feel that we're getting closer and closer to the end of our patience and are about to unleash military strikes. This is just real diplomacy - which, lefties, is always backed up by a willingness to use force.

Seems like a bit of wisdom to me. I THINK I'LL TRUST PRESIDENT BUSH AND SECRETARY RICE ON THIS ONE AS OPPOSED TO PUNDITS WHO HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LIVES AND SAFETY OF AMERICANS.

Mark has more to say on this subject here: (GO MARK!)

HAITIAN TEEN GETS WITH: TO MEET PRESIDENT BUSH
A Haitian girl who received life-saving surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital will meet President Bush today in Washington.
BY EVAN S. BENN AND TRENTON DANIEL
ebenn@MiamiHerald.com

Almost two years after Miami doctors removed a life-threatening tumor from her face, Haitian teenager Dahana Stephanie David will have a chance to thank one of the people she credits for saving her life.

Dahana, 17, will meet President Bush today at the White House.

She doesn't speak English, but she learned the words to God Bless America, which she plans to sing to Bush. She also learned to say ``I love you, President.''

YOUR FEET'S TOO BIG
"An Inconvenient Truth," Al Gore's global-warming horror flick, picked up an Oscar the other night for Best Documentary. Yesterday the Tennessee Center for Policy Research issued an inconvenient report on Gore's own personal "carbon footprint." The center obtained utility records from Gore's mansion "located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville":

The last thing I would fancy when ill is soup.

I offered dad soup yesterday and he feels the same. Years ago in Britain it used to be consomme soup (clear beef soup) was the norm for people recovering from illness but it seems that in the US it is chicken soup from the posts I see on FR.
