Today President Bush spoke at the rededication of the Islamic Center of Washington. (Transcript)
Returning to the White House, the president met with experts to discuss how individual citizens can (and should) have the power to make their own health care decisions, not the government. He spoke about this later in the Roosevelt Room. (Transcript)
First Lady Laura Bush continued her tour of Africa, arriving in Maputo, Mozambique. There, Mrs. Bush met with President Armando Guebuza and toured US funded facilities that are fighting malaria and AIDS while helping the victims of those diseases.
Back home, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke at the US-India Business Council in Washington.
And on a much lighter (and happier) note, President Bush attended the Seventh-Annual Tee Ball Game this afternoon on the South Lawn of the White House. (Transcript)
Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island
Quote of the Day:
President Bush: This is what freedom offers: societies where people can live and worship as they choose without intimidation, without suspicion, without a knock on the door from the secret police.
The freedom of religion is the very first protection offered in America's Bill of Rights. It is a precious freedom. It is a basic compact under which people of faith agree not to impose their spiritual vision on others, and in return to practice their own beliefs as they see fit. This is the promise of our Constitution, and the calling of our conscience, and a source of our strength.

The Dose Threads (also known as "Sanity Island", "The Daily Dose of Sanity", or "The Dose" for short) are one of the staple threads of Free Republic.
Established in 2001, the Dose provides news and photos of the president that are regularly ignored or misrepresented by the mainstream media.
This thread also provides a safe haven--an island of sanity--for anyone seeking the company of friends, the fellowship of prayer or just the pleasure of a civilized conversation.
If you have no interest in this, please heed the warning above and stay off this thread.

President Bush is seen through the viewfinder of a camera in the audience as he makes remarks during the re-dedication ceremony of the Islamic Center of Washington in Washington, Wednesday, June 27, 2007.
President Bush: We've seen the expansion of the concept of religious freedom and individual rights in every region of the world -- except one. In the Middle East, we have seen instead the rise of a group of extremists who seek to use religion as a path to power and a means of domination.
This self-appointed vanguard presumes to speak for Muslims. They do not. They call all Muslims who do not believe in their harsh and hateful ideology "infidels" and "betrayers" of the true Muslim faith. This enemy falsely claims that America is at war with Muslims and the Muslim faith, when in fact it is these radicals who are Islam's true enemy. (Applause.)
YAY! Dude, I was holding my breath waiting for the darned ‘preview’ thing to hurry up. It seemed like it was taking forever. I can’t believe I get this excited over an imaginary toaster!
When snugs or whoever is doing toasters comes on, I’d like a purple one with a nice picture of Laura Bush.
Whoa - toaster for YOU! I was thinking about you today, wondering how you’re coping with an automobile. Don’t ask me why.....my mind works in mysterious ways.
President Bush arrives to make remarks on health care, Wednesday, June 27, 2007, in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington.
Thanks for posting the information about the “Dose” Someone was asking me yesterday, but I couldn’t explain it
Imaginary???? OH NO! I keep waiting for mine to arrive from the UK - LOL
President Bush: I hear the same concerns: America's health care is too costly, it's too confusing; it leaves too many people uninsured.
The fundamental question is, what should we do about it? On that question, our nation has a clear choice.
One option is to put more power in the hands of government by expanding federal health care programs and empowering bureaucrats to make medical decisions.
The other option is to put more power in the hands of individuals, by making private health insurance more affordable and accessible and empowering people and their doctors to make the decisions that are right for them. That's the divide.
