A Day in the Life of President Bush (& VP Cheney): 10-15-08
WhiteHouse.gov & other sources ^ | 10-15-08

Posted on 10/15/2008 5:38:17 PM PDT by silent_jonny

During a medical examination this morning, Vice President Cheney was informed that he was experiencing an abnormal heartbeat (atrial fibrillation). The Vice President met with President Bush for the usual briefings and informed him of the situation. (Statement from the Vice President’s Office)

Deputy Press Secretary Tony Fratto: … the President was made aware directly by the Vice President.

… Q And any particular reaction from the President?

Tony Fratto: Much like he would with any friend, he's concerned for him, wish him well, and told him to go and make sure the doctors do what they need to do. (Source)

The Vice President went to George Washington University Hospital this afternoon for an outpatient procedure.

An electrical impulse was delivered to restore the heart to normal rhythm. The procedure went smoothly and without complication … The Vice President is home and resumed his normal schedule. (Second Statement from the Vice President’s Office)

In other news, President Bush met with his cabinet this morning for a briefing on the economy

As I said yesterday, it's very important for the American people to know that the program is designed to preserve free enterprise, not replace free enterprise. Decisions we took to enhance liquidity and make sure our financial instruments are strong is a temporary decision.

… the program is limited. In other words, the government will buy only a certain number of shares in individual banks. These banks will be privately controlled. The liquidity measures being taken are structured such that the government will be a passive investor. In other words, there won't be government officials sitting on the board of private companies.

These are extraordinary measures, no question about it. But they're well thought out, they are necessary, and I'm confident in the long run this economy will come back.

The President also participated in a video teleconference this morning with Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) Leaders and Brigade Combat Commanders in Iraq. (Transcript)

The good thing about our military and our civilians in the PRTs, they're constantly looking at ways to make sure that we remain effective. And I have asked the press corps to come in here so I could, on TV, thank you all for what you're doing, and thank you for your service. We are fortunate to have citizens such as yourself. Thank you.

President Bush traveled to Ada, Michigan this afternoon to discuss the economy with small business owners. (Transcript)

I want to assure the folks out here that we're not going to be using your taxpayer money to, you know, enrich financiers; that we're going to protect your money, help you get it back. But people aren't going to be able to have a golden parachute as a result of your hard work and money going to help provide stability in our financial system.

So I want to thank you all for giving me a chance to come. This is -- it's good to be out of Washington -- (laughter) -- out here with people who are taking risk and working hard, and the values are strong. And I thank you all for giving me a chance to come and see you. … (Applause.)

Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Gov. Sarah Palin campaigned all over New Hampshire today, drawing huge crowds wherever she spoke.

President George W. Bush speaks to the press alongside small business owners following a lunch with them at the Schnitz Ada Deli and Grill in Ada, Michigan, October 15, 2008.



President Bush, right, delivers a statement outside the Ada Bike Shop following a meeting with Rep. Vernon J. Ehlers, R-Mich., left and local business leaders in Ada, Mich., Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2008.

President Bush: So I want to thank you all for giving me a chance to come. This is -- it's good to be out of Washington -- (laughter) -- out here with people who are taking risk and working hard, and the values are strong. And I thank you all for giving me a chance to come and see you. Congressman, thank you. (Applause.)

Q How's the Vice President? How's his health?

The Vice President is doing fine. I talked to him this morning -- thank you for asking. He was at our briefings this morning. He came in and told me he was going to head back into the hospital to have his, you know, his heart checked, worked on. And he said this is the exact same procedure he had a while ago. And he was confident, his doctors are confident, and therefore I'm confident.

Vice President Dick Cheney waves from his bulletproof limousine as he arrives at a secure garage at the George Washington University Hospital for a heart procedure in Washington, October 15, 2008. The Vice President, who has a history of heart trouble, was experiencing an recurrence of an abnormal heartbeat and will undergo a hospital procedure to address it, his spokeswoman said.



The Vice President's Press Secretary Megan Mitchell: During a visit with his doctors this morning, it was discovered that the Vice President is experiencing a recurrence of atrial fibrillation, an abnormal rhythm involving the upper chambers of the heart.

Later this afternoon, the Vice President will visit George Washington University Hospital for an outpatient procedure to restore his normal rhythm.

Deputy Press Secretary Tony Fratto: The President saw the Vice President this morning. The Vice President was in the morning briefings with the President, as he is usually, and the Vice President updated the President on his health condition that he'll be dealing with today. I think the Vice President's office put a statement out on this, but the President was made aware by -- directly by the Vice President.

DINERS AT SCHNITZ IN ADA GET SURPRISE LUNCH GUEST WHEN PRESIDENT BUSH ARRIVES
by Ken Kolker | The Grand Rapids Press

ADA — Ryan Kuieck expected to eat lunch with his mother on Wednesday — not President Bush.

“I was sitting down eating and he sat down next to me,” said the 27-year-old Grand Rapids man, who had a club sandwich with his mother and Bush at the Schnitz Deli and Ada Grill in downtown Ada.

Bush dropped into the Schnitz for a surprise visit on his way to a $5,000-a-head political fundraiser with Dick DeVos.

BUSH HONORS VOLUNTEER CINCY LEEP WITH PRESIDENTIAL SERVICE AWARD
by Dave Murray | The Grand Rapids Press
Wednesday October 15, 2008, 1:22 PM

GRAND RAPIDS — As President Bush descended the stairs from Air Force One and chatted with his official greeters, Cindy Leep stood off to the side, beaming.

. . . Bush appeared to be in good spirits, smiling and laughing with the greeters.

Land said she thanked Bush for coming back to Grand Rapids while he was still in office.

“I’ve known him back when he was doing advance work for his father,” Land said. “With everything going on, I didn’t know whether he’d get another opportunity to come back. I guess I was feeling a bit nostalgic as his presidency is coming to a close.”

Apparently the crowd was so large at Dover High School that many supporters couldn't get inside. So Sarah, along with Trig, made a point to greet the supporters outside.
