A Year in the Life of President Bush (a lot of photos): Part 1 (Jan - Mar 2008)
www.whitehouse.gov www.sanityisland.us/gallery2 ^ | 1st January 2009 | Snugs

Posted on 01/01/2009 1:25:18 AM PST by snugs

The following photos may not necessarily be the best photos or the most important but they are chosen because they appeal to me and hopefully to you as well. It maybe because of the content, the expression on the face(s) or just an unusual photo.

As there are so many photos I have split this thread into 4 the first one will be January - March, the second April - June, the third July - September and the fourth October - December 2008.

I am posting this first part on the first of January 2009 and am aiming to put the other 3 up before the 20th January 2009.

As with the normal Day in the Life Thread I would request that photos are not posted until the all clear so that we have a chronology series of photos.

Enjoy your bonus visit to Sanity Island

QUOTE OF THE YEAR
Presidential Message for New Year's Day, 2008

10:35 A.M. CST

THE PRESIDENT: Laura and I wish our fellow Americans a happy and healthy 2008. I particularly want to say something to our troops and their families: This country respects you, we admire you and we wish you a great 2008, as well.

We've just come off the ranch; had a good rest and good New Year's with some friends. And I'm looking forward to getting back to Washington to work on policies to keep this country safe and to keep this country prosperous.

I just wanted to stop by and wish everybody a happy 2008. Thank you.

MRS. BUSH: Happy New Year, everybody.

And it is, as Mrs. Bush said, bittersweet to see them go. It is hard to believe that by the end of this month they will be gone. But may God bless their time together in the future and whatever they have in store for them in the years to come. However, I am sure that they will enjoy being away from the critical spotlight.
