The White House; yahoo ^ | 1-23-07 | onyx

Posted on 04/23/2007 4:32:43 PM PDT by onyx

Welcome to Sanity Island, where only adults are allowed.

President Bush had a busy day today.

He met with General Petraeus in the Oval Office to discuss the War in Iraq.

President George W. Bush delivers a statement on the War in Iraq during a visit Monday, April 23, 2007, by Gen. David Petraeus, Commander of the Multinational Force-Iraq, to the White House. Said the President, "I will strongly reject an artificial timetable withdrawal and/or Washington politicians trying to tell those who wear the uniform how to do their job." With them is Gen. Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, left, and Gordon England, Deputy Secretary of Defense. White House photo by Eric Draper

He welcomed President Garcia of Peru to the White House.

President George W. Bush and President Alan Garcia of Peru share a light moment as they shake hands during a visit Monday, April 23, 2007, in the Oval Office. In the United States to promote free trade between the countries, the Peruvian leader said, "It is important to show the world that a democracy, with investment, leads to development."

President Bush had a wonderful time congratulating the NFL Super Bowl Champion Indianapolic Colts --- a must read full text here --- He met with them on the South Lawn.

He later participated in a Meeting on Medicare Part D in the Roosevelt Room.

President George W. Bush addresses the press during a meeting about medicare in the Roosevelt Room April 23, 2007. "It took a monumental effort by a lot of citizens around the country to make the options that our seniors were given easy to understand," said President Bush. "In other words, we reformed Medicare and gave seniors a lot of choices, and it took a lot of loving Americans a lot of time to make these choices available for our senior citizens. Now that the plan is in place, 39 million have signed up for it, drug costs are less than anticipated, and the cost to the taxpayer is about $200 billion less than anticipated." White House photo by Eric Draper

President Bush offered his condolences to the Yeltsin family and Russian people over the passing of Boris Yeltsin.

Laura and I are deeply saddened by the death of former Russian President Boris Yeltsin. President Yeltsin was an historic figure who served his country during a time of momentous change. He played a key role as the Soviet Union dissolved, helped lay the foundations of freedom in Russia, and became the first democratically elected leader in that country's history. I appreciate the efforts that President Yeltsin made to build a strong relationship between Russia and the United States. We offer our sincerest condolences to the Yeltsin family and to the Russian people.

Quote of the Day

I believe strongly that politicians in Washington shouldn't be telling generals how to do their job. And I believe artificial timetables of withdrawal would be a mistake. An artificial timetable of withdrawal would say to an enemy, just wait them out; it would say to the Iraqis, don't do hard things necessary to achieve our objectives; and it would be discouraging for our troops. And therefore I will strongly reject an artificial timetable withdrawal and/or Washington politicians trying to tell those who wear the uniform how to do their job.

I will, of course, be willing to work with the Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, on a way forward. That's what I said during the Cabinet Room. But I also made it clear that no matter how tough it may look, that for the Congress to micromanage this process is a mistake.

I am here - thanks for stepping in. Thankfully when I got home the power was back on. I am not sure how long it was out but it was certainly over 30 minutes as it went out about 5 minutes after I got back from the hospital and by the time my friend picked me up about half an hour had gone. Apparently some houses lost power 2 hours previously and were still out when I left.

I was quite shocked as it must be several years since we had a power cut lasting more than about 5 minutes.

It was quite a shock as I had just put the oven on and turn the slow cooker up ready to dish my dinner out and suddenly we were plunged into darkness.

As I am an all electric house I did not have any heat either so I was very pleased that my friend collected me and I could take my dinner round to his place.
