Too bad this photo isn't on the front page of every newspaper. Maybe someone can post it in this thread.

Wow! You know, just when I think I have heard everything that could possibly make me admire this man, I hear something else. He is right up there with Billy Graham as far as respect goes in my book. He is truly an awesome person!!! God bless him, his family and the family of this little girl!

I have some policy differences with the President, but one thing I am sure of - this is a decent, honorable man worthy of my vote. A far cry from the previous occupant of the White House!

"The way he was holding me, with my head against his chest, it felt like he was trying to protect me," Ashley said. "I thought, 'Here is the most powerful guy in the world, and he wants to make sure I'm safe.' I definitely had a couple of tears in my eyes, which is pretty unusual for me."

What a special moment. The elite media would never carry this photo or story. It doesn't fit their agenda. This girl will never forget, though, and that's all the President cares about.

Who took the picture, this girl's family or a news photographer?

Is it just me, or does he seem to be looking at the camera as if to say, "Get that thing out of my face right now?" As if he has a sense of what's proper at such a time.

Bill Clinton would have been hamming it up for the camera at a moment like this.

Ok, I'm an idiot. I missed the sentence the first time that said the girl's father snapped the picture. But he still doesn't look too happy about having the picture taken to me.

"You are loosing focus on the main issue here. The United States is torturing prisoners and we MUST get to the bottom of it ASAP. "

This photo will not be seen in the major media. Maybe someone can send the story to Fox.

I think the neighbor that was with the girl photographed took the picture. It sure wasn't a staged photo op for sure.....the look on the President's face says it all.

This is like the time the boy died who lived in the ranch next door to the Bush's in Crawford, TX. The funeral and arrangements were all paid for by an anonymous donor. It was also the Secret Service who were first responders to pull him out of the well where he drowned. Bush didn't want any credit for his help, he just wanted to ease their pain. I don't think he would want any media to plaster this picture up, for fear that the girl wouldn't want that.

I see a look of pain in his face, not anger. He's genuinely hurting for this girl's loss. God Bless President Bush.

Boy, he looks like he's gonna cry (just like me, sniff sniff, wipe eyes)

At least he doesn't have to say "I feel your pain" because people can see it. What a good person. And he really seems to have comforted her.

The look is a familiar one to me. I have seen it on many a mans face. It says his emotions are being held in check through the strength of his will and those emotions are sadness, anger, empathy and a helpless feeling that springs forth from knowing there is nothing you can do to change what is done.

Nobody can deny that the President is a good man.

Oh, they'll try. He is quite possibly the most genuine person to be president since Truman.
