DFU TALKS TO PRESIDENT AND SENDS DASCHLE TO HIS ROOM
dfu on the scene | 1-5-01 | DFU

Posted on 01/05/2002 11:06:05 AM PST by doug from upland

Yes, the rumors are true. I had the opportunity to ask our president a question today.

First, it began with a statement. Sorry, but I don't remember it exactly ----- Mr. President, my son-in-law recently returned from a cruise on the USS ENTERPRISE. He wants you to know that everyone on that ship, down to the last man and woman, is proud to call you their commander in chief.

He smiled and the crowd gave a huge standing O.

Then one of the event helpers tried to take away the microphone. I politely said no, I hadn't gotten to ask my question.

"Mr. President, now for my question. After you send Tommy Daschle to his room for being bad, please tell us how you plan to end our nation's dependence on foreign oil."

What a fun time and a great right wing audience!

Kudos!!

GW just gets better and better. I love the way he is dealing with Daschle right now and his "over my dead body -- they won't raise taxes" effectively ends their latest ploy :)

Hehe, it was a question he couldn't answer; but received the political advantage of having hearing it asked! Brilliant - both of you!

He did not take the opportunity to comment on Daschle but it was teed up for him to present the highlights of his energy policy.

You are the MAN! God bless you for providing the FUNNIEST political bitchslap to be ever broadcast on TV. Bush's line about 'over my dead body' on taxes and your 'sending Tommy to his room' where the two soundbytes picked up by the national media.

Way to go! I knew it was a Freeper by the question. If not, I thought, he should be.

The speech was a moving one for me and your comments and the Chaplin's comments on our servicemen just threw it over the top. Thanks for being there.

Glad you were there where the rest of us would have liked to have been -- in the presence of a great man. Thanks for the comment that produced a standing ovation from the crowd. And thanks for putting "little" Tommy Daschle in his place.

VH-1 is gonna air the speech tonight too, with a few minor changes. VH-1 replaced the Standing ovation with the boos that they cut from the Hillary speech.

Doug, I say you did NOT say "little". And I'm glad of it, because IMO "sending Tommy to his room for being bad" was all it took. More would've been gratuitous. Congrats!!!!!

I am in complete awe of you! That was wonderful-your opening comment (regarding you son-in-law) that brought deep emotion to our President (the ol jaw tightening thing men do, brought huge applause from the audience, and lifted the hearts of folks like myself out here in middle America, ) then your tommy daschel comment, oh DOUG, you laid it out with that comment so perfectly that I imagine tommy and his flying monkey troops, including the chief witch and war room junkie herself, will NEVER, EVER, FORGET IT!

Methinks you pissed off a rather insidious group of liberal thugs today, Doug, on National TV-GOD BLESS YOU! :^) And I could swear a brief twinge of a smile escaped our President as you framed the question about tommy "haskel". He walked away to hide it, I think! But he LOVED the meat of your question and I LOVE YOU for doing such a 100% tremendous job! You both lifted up and heartened our President and you managed to jab someone who is a thorn in our President's side (because Haskel in not honorable, no honest, and wants to twart bi-partisanship almost as much as our President wants to encourage it). MANY MANY KUDOS DOUG-this will be my favorite FReeper event for a LONG LONG time to come. I hope I get to meet cha someday .... as I said, I am in awe! Hugs, smooches and eagles way, way up! Conservative men RULE!

Yes, I admit it.

I wasn't dreaming!! Unfortunately foxnews broke for a station break so we didn't get to hear what you said. When another fellow spoke and said "I too am honored to call you our Commander in Chief" I filled in the blanks and understood why Dubya seemed deeply touched. The audience was with him from the onset and everyone was flawed when Dubya said 'they will raise your taxes over my dead body' which seems to be the sound bite we will hear throughout the day.
