The first lady and her potential successor received loud and extended applause from delegates, but both were careful to avoid any language that could be construed as political.
“When such events happen, were reminded that first we are all Americans,” said Bush, “and that our shared America ideals will always transcend political parties and partisanship.”

video was shown during the brief session featuring four of the five Gulf Coast governors: Texas’ Rick Perry, Alabama’s Bob Riley, Mississippi’s Haley Barbour and Florida’s Charlie Crist.
All stressed what they were doing to respond to the storm and also asked Americans to lend a hand.
Perry, sporting jeans and a work shirt while standing in front of a Texas Air National Guard supply plane, did note to the Republicans that it was their governors who were leading the effort.
“You’re seeing Republican governors in Republican states doing a fabulous job taking care of the citizens,” Perry said.
ideals will(rather should) transcend political parties....??
Not so sure that’s reallity!
“Blame america first” sounds familiar?
Hope the tough stuff will begin

Say what? Can anyone explain what the "L" stands for?
I'd like to think is something like "lady," but knowing Reuters, I cannot imagine its anything that flattering.
I see you are in France, and you might not know that we had a Hurricane yesterday that affected five states, all of which had REPUBLICAN Governors. We also have a REPUBLICAN President who was there and our Candidate for President John McCain was also there to help out.
And since you do not seem familiar with American Presidential Conventions, usually the Presidential Candidate does not speak til the last day, after he has been fully nominated by his Political Party. That should be September 4, unless .. God forbid we have another diaster to hit our shores.
I hope that answered your question.
It means she is standing on the left side of the picture. (rolls eyes)
CNN did not carry these videos on either of their 2 channels. They just continued on with pictures of splashing water or waving trees and their own Gustav commentary.
CNN is the channel forced upon us in airports and waiting rooms all across America. I guess they didn't want their audience to see what was actually going on at the Republican Convention for the few minutes it was live.
I was in awe of how beautiful Cindy looked yesterday afternoon. I knew she was pretty but she looked spectacular. Great choice of hair style and dress.
Yes I agree and Laura looked stunning also.
Just wished that this RNC doesn’t go on as a bountyfull telethon or a charity meeting with compassionate,kind words,ONLY.
Your opponents are not fair you know that and we know that(as in France there is an endless campaign for Mister O. in our MSM)
I am a little bit afraid of J.McCAIN being too weak with no vision ,trying to please everyone...
And,BTW, i’ll try to campaign for J.McCAIN in France(Paris)
I thought how feminine both Cindy McCain and Laura Bush looked.. both beautiful ladies.
patience... :-) oh yeah....and do not fire until you see the white of their eyes..ha
I was busy with Labor Day activities and did not get to see them either, that is one reason I posted the pictures and video today.
Wow. Sometimes I forget just how talented and simply beautiful the Republican women are.
