Be careful Pop, the Lord may be preparing you to work ‘inside’ the WH later. He has that sense of humor.

I am thrilled for all of you...just chilled to the bone, actually, with excitement.

I am so glad that you were invited to our WH...to not only meet our wonderful President and his wife, but our Vice President, Sec. of State and other leaders of our nation. THIS IS JUST WONDERFUL!

Please share some details with us! What did you say to our President and VP? Is Condi as warm as she seems? Was the weather as grand as it looked in the pics?

CONGRATULATIONS!

When I think of the hours upon hours you all have worked to support our troops my heart swells.

Your every friday night vigil at Walter Reed, your rallies and your love for our nation and those who keep it free....JUST WOW! Soooooooooooooooooo happy that you all got to meet the BIG GUNS and so glad that our President and Vice President got to meet such a group of terrific patriots!

"Get out of Cheney's house! Get out of Cheney's house!!!"

may be the most memorable chant ever. I loved it when you guys got the ultimate proof just how powerful it remains to this day....when the goobers on the left copy-catted you to try and drum up some interest in impeaching VP Cheney. The left is just tooooooooooooooooo lame! They can't even come up with original chants. But then, they don't have you guys.

Are you going to write a report of your day? Please, please say yes!!

You guys have EARNED it all the way and I’m so glad President and Mrs. Bush acknowledged that fact.

But I must admit... I am so eaten up with envy!! ;-)

“Be careful Pop, the Lord may be preparing you to work ‘inside’ the WH later. He has that sense of humor.”

Better to work inside than out on the lawn in that heat, LOL. Had enough of that in my younger days. Snakes and all that stuff!

To tell you the truth, I really have no desire to be there unless I’m needed. As far as I’m concerned, the government works for me, or should. I’ve elected them, or tried, and I support them at my will. If they are not doing the job, then it is my responsibility to do what I can to correct the situation.

Heck, Ma, I just don’t know. But this thread is all about our dedicated, hard working patriots here at FR. Well met, well said and well deserved. Being clairvoyant, I can picture a few shy (?) smiles and bouncing eyebrows, along with an echo of “Woo Hoo”, fading off into the distance. All of which is quite normal, and well deserved, I can assure you.

Ma, you got any home remedies for swollen heads?

They knew they were freepers at the vp house. In Barbara Bush's book she said Doro? disguised herself and participated.

Kristinn - great to see this. How did the invite come about?

Absolutely Awesome

Thank you for the wonderful report & great pix and the ping! So happy you were all able to share the joy of celebration with real patriots. You are most of the time in the trenches butting heads with jerks. And what perfect weather. You all look great.. and I even recognized Mr. T in his disguise(a tie???)

No group is more deserving of a White House invitation than those who were there today. The families of the slain, those serving, vets, and DC’s faithful FReepers.
