A Day in the Life of President Bush (photos): 9-24-08
WhiteHouse.gov & other sources ^ | 9-24-08

Posted on 09/24/2008 5:18:30 PM PDT by silent_jonny

With all the news focused on the economy and the President’s speech tonight, you may have missed the big news from Iraq:

The country that was once “on the brink of civil war”,

The country that defeatist Democrats like Harry Reid wrote off as “lost”,

The country that Senator Joe Biden wanted to divide into three ethnic-based regions (video from September 8, 2008—Biden brags: “My plan to partition Iraq is working.”)

That same country UNITED PEACEFULLY today to overwhelmingly pass a Provincial Election Law that will allow new elections to take place between now and January 31, 2009. The law will also give Iraqis more freedom in choosing their representatives.

President Bush congratulated the Iraqi Parliament for reaching this milestone in becoming a self-sustained democracy (Transcript)

Today's action demonstrates the ability of Iraq's leaders to work together for the good of the Iraqi people and represents further progress on political reconciliation. I congratulate the members of the Iraqi Council of Representatives for coming together to pass this significant legislation.

In other news, President Bush discussed free trade with Western Hemisphere leaders today at the Council of the Americas in New York City. (Transcript) and met with President Tony Saca of El Salvador (Transcript)

The President returned to the White House this afternoon where he will deliver a televised statement on the economy tonight at 9pm EST.

Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Gov. Sarah Palin was also in New York City today meeting with the leaders of Iraq, Pakistan, India and the Ukraine.

Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island

Quote of the Day:

President Bush: It's important for the American people to understand that exports benefit workers. Half of our growth last year was the result of trade. And therefore, it's in our interest to continue to open up markets, particularly in our own neighborhood. There are three free trade agreements pending in the Congress today: South Korea, Panama and Colombia. Obviously, two of those are with nations in our own hemisphere. The Colombia free trade agreement will be good for Colombia; it will be good for America. The President and I have worked diligently to make sure this is a fair agreement, and Congress needs to pass it.

Photos of the Day:

President Bush walks with the El Salvador's President Antonio Saca, to make a statement on Temporary Protected Status, Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2008, at the Council of the Americas in New York.


President Bush: I want to let my friend know, and the people of El Salvador, that the United States will extend TPS status to El Salvadoreans living in our country. This is a decision that was made to improve the lives of El Salvadoreans.

I'm proud to make this announcement with you standing by my side. You've been a very strong and courageous leader, and you have been a friend. And I know this is an issue of concern to you, because you care deeply about the people of your country. And so when you get back home, you can tell the people that TPS has been extended.

President George W. Bush is surrounded by leaders from the Western Hemisphere as he delivers a statement on free trade Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2008, at the Council of the Americas in New York City.


President Bush: What's interesting about free and fair trade amongst the nations is that the people benefit. For example, the Central American-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement is in its early stages, but trade between participating countries with the United States is up 23 percent. That translates to jobs and prosperity. In the five years since the free trade agreement between the United States and Chile took effect, trade between our two nations has increased by more than 180 percent. And that's positive. In other words, these agreements are mutually beneficial. And most importantly, they help small business owners and workers and farmers and ranchers.

THANK YOU for both the photos and the reminder about Iraq’s POLITICAL progress . . . The changes in Iraq over the last 5 years have been nothing short of MIRACULOUS — our visionary President and his courageous troops deserve the world’s eternal gratitude!

[Prayers up for the President — may the good Lord open the ears, eyes and hearts of those listening to his speech tonight!]

I really am impressed with how saavy Sarah is in her dressing. She's got so many trying to look like her. If she were such a hick from Alaska as the MSM, etc. are trying to say that she is...no one would want to buy & wear everything Palin.

I think she has a GREAT designer and excellent hairstylist...great makeup and just a stunning look.

Republicans Rule!

Hi Nordie,

I read that Sarah shops at an upscale consignment store for some of her outfits (and for her girls too). She doesn’t have a lot of money to spend on clothes, but she always looks fabulous.

I attended the rally in Media Pa on Monday. She was great.

excellent hairstylist...

Agree with everything you say about how she dresses and her makeup, but tend to disagree about her hair. I don't know, but I think she'd be even more attractive with something a little more professional. Having it hanging down around her shoulders is not the best look imo for a Vice President. Her hair is very shiny (lucky her), but since it is that shiny it also runs the risk of looking a little unkempt. Her up-do is great---dated, but great.

Agreed, but long hair is in...no matter your age. Not my rules, but the fashion of today. She looks good both ways, to me.
