Skip to comments.A Day in the Life of President Bush - 9.7.04
Posted on 09/07/2004 1:37:52 PM PDT by ohioWfan
President Bush continued his bus tour of Missouri today with appearances at Lees Summit High School, in Lees Summit, Missouri, a stop at a business in Warrensburg, then on to the Missouri State Fair Coliseum in Sedalia for an Ask the President event, after having appeared before a crowd of 30,000 cheering supporters in Poplar Bluff last evening. The President is scheduled to travel through Missouri by bus for the rest of the day and return to the White House this evening.
Its a GOOD time to be a Bushbot! Enjoy your trip to Sanity Island on the Daily Dose!
New thread going up right now from the Boston Globe about Dubyas NG service.
Good Night time for bed for me God Bless you all and God Bless America
NOT ME! :-)
Mark my words... We will witness the Democrats regroup and distance themselves from the far left after this election. The Joe Lieberman's and John Breaux's of the Democrat Party will come forth to lead their Party after this election and it will be good thing for the Country.
The far left have simply become unhinged and they have been resorting to spewing obvious lies and distortions and any rational thinking American can see right through them. People like John Kerry and Ted Kennedy will end up being like Pat Buchanan, shuffled out of the mainstream and eventually ignored
NBC's Today Show plans to interview Kelly
That figures. A Roach at the Roach Hotel
I know a lot of people who aren't paying attention to politics, and when we talked today about the kelley book they were very angry.
Ordinary people don't HATE GWB, they know these accusations have been thrown at him before, and it is going to backfire.
It's like when I used to take my little brother to the store with me or some such place. When he throws a tantrum, what do you do? Walk away. Don't give it attention, don't make it into a big deal.
I think normal people know what is at stake in this election, and this book isn't going to make a difference!
I'm with you 100%!
Americans just aren't this gullible!
Irrational anger never won anything.
PS. YOu could have heard a pin drop in that hall when he gave the end of the speech. It was soooo touching! I'd think anyone listening would have been convinced beyond any shadow of a doubt, but you've read my doubts of the night . . .
George W. Bush did absolutely nothing wrong while serving in the ANG and this is much to do about NOTHING
Where? What's it called? Is it negative? See, we were right!
I think by the time more comes out on Kerry and his
military record and the early 70s stuff. The Navy is
looking into the Silver star with a v, etc. he will be
toast. I think those who hate the President already will
be the ones to believe the Kelly crap.
I'd love to see your opining . .
There is nothin new in the latest story of GWB's Guard Service
I think that it may come down to our cultures sometimes being a little uptight about being seen to be enthusiastic about elected public officials. LOL.
I remember Mr Prescott (wasn't it him?) thumping somebody for throwing a tomato at him. If that happended to PM Howard he would send in his bodyguards to bash 'em.
I think if somebody was to show vehement support around PM Howard (like some of the people at President Bush's rallies) he would have kittens!!
I mean your "opinion" (typing too fast)
Another example of you knowing, me knowing, everyone here knowing . . . but the left twisting . . . hopefully not enough to cause people to change their vote, but enough to cast doubt.
I dread the daily, unfounded vicious attacks on Dubya...and they will happen..that's why the new *team* has been brought in..they are masterslimers...(LOL)
LOL....I've seen your opinions on other threads...and I agree with you.....
Nothing new with the NG story...they just put a little lipstick on it and shoved it out the door again...this seems to be all they have.
Bush really seems to enjoy being out on the campaign trail and meeting the folks. You can tell right away that he's a man who's comfortable in his own skin. Lurch just looks either pained or medicated, and he can't decide whose skin to be in from one minute to the next.
Nope .. Kitty Kelly is a whack job and this book is proof
The far left will lap up every word .. but the moderate dems and the independents won't
George W. Bush spent his first 4 1/2 years in the Texas Air National Guard learning to fly, and flying one of the most dangerous Fighter Jets ever flown. The F-102 Delta Dart was a heavy underpowered Jet Fighter that had a high casualty rate and hard to fly. George W. Bush scored above average in his flying ability and average on his written exams.
George W. Bush had over 375 Hours of flight time in a F-102 and in 1972 he asked if he could be transfered to the Alabama Guard so he could work on campaigning for a family friend. The request was granted because the F-102 was being phased out of service and there was not going to be any need for his skills in just a few months.
The Alabama National Guard did not have any F-102's for George W. Bush to fly so he did not have to maintain his readiness status, so he didn't bother to take the physical and only showed up when he had to. (MANY OTHERS DID THE SAME. IT WAS COMMON PLACE)
The AP makes it sound like The Alabama Guard had 2 F-102's on strip alert in Alabama, but notice that they say "THE 147th" Well the 147th was part of the Texas Air National Guard and nothing to do with the Alabama Guard.
In short... There was nothing for George W. Bush to fly in Alabama and his time was so short that they didn't want to train him for another Jet Fighter if he wasn't going to reenlist, so they had him sign in and read magazines and do landscaping instead of drills. When he requested an early departure so he could go back to College, the Military granted his request and gave him an Honorable Discharge and that is the end of the story.
NOWHERE is their a single document that suggests George W. Bush was ever AWOL or delinquent. The left and their enablers in the Main Stream Media are simply desperate
Great Post Mike and I totally agree ..
Are you watching Sean Hannity wipe the floor with Bob Graham .. LOL!!
Excellent...you need to post this on all the NG threads for everyone to understand.
Bob Graham will not writing this evenings experience in his daily Diary :-)
Thanks for the suggestion, I just did :-)
Why doesn't someone just lock this guy up?
Keep reminding your uncle that we are in a war against Satan, not man. Unless we fight evil Satan triumphs. Jesus' teachings on passive resistance were all directed to the individual. He then told us to render unto Caesar. He never addressed the issue of war, but he took up a whip against the evil money changers in the Temple courts. God commanded his people to wipe out whole tribes in the Old Testament. The thing is, if everyone was a Christian and treated one another according to Jesus' teachings we would have no wars or disputes as a society or as nations.
In a rubber room!!!
You know, OWF, I'm still in the dark here. I don't know what time. Let me do some searching and see If I can find out. I'll e-mail you.
I am in complete agreement with you.
Thank you for your counsel.
I do think he KNOWS these things but is very blinded by his political views and is being proud.
He has opposed GWB from the start and will not change.
It doesn't matter that much to me, I feel and believe that good will triumph.
I don't worry too much about the future, it is out of my hands! :0)
I'm still trying to find out what happened to your daughter. I missed something.
FOFL!! .. That's for sure
. . . just got home from yet another exhausting orientation session for new college students -- is school ever going to start?!
Before saying goodnight, I want to share with you the following article from Walter E. Williams:
[NOTE: As Williams indicates, the President is a man of great personal/political courage. We must honor his courage and do everything we can to repel the media's dispicable attempts to destroy him! Victory is within our reach . . . we must remain strong -- only 57 more days!!!]:
President Bush's Political Courage
Monday, Sept. 6, 2004
Measure not the work
Until the day's out and the labour done,
Then bring your gauges.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
John Kerry casts himself with great force upon a role. On Monday Kerry is a brave Vietnam vet who speaks about his time in the trenches in calm gravitas. On Tuesday he is a fist-pumping anti-war protester who is denouncing his commanding officers and comrades as criminals. (If he was genuinely concerned about war crimes, he could have just turned himself in to a tribunal instead running for Congress in '72).
On Wednesday he finds God. Whatever it takes to ingrain himself in the popular culture the real source of power in a democracy.
Of course, the one thing he can never be is authentic. This is becoming abundantly clear as his flip-flopping erodes his ability to argue passionately about any single issue.
President Bush provides an alternative. He does not flip flop. At times he seems almost bizarrely unconcerned with what the pollsters think. Some critics accuse the president of having too much cowboy swagger. Perhaps a better label would be political courage.
Whatever you want to call it, one thing is clear: While the Democrats exude weakness and indecisiveness on the issue of national security, Bush remains unwavering. During the recent Republican convention, Bush was moved to tears when recalling the pain he felt for the families who sacrifice their sons and daughters in this war (as were many of the attendees on the floor at Madison Square Garden).
Does anyone doubt the commander in chief when he declares, We're staying on the offensive, striking terrorists abroad so we do not have to face them here at home?
Can you say the same about Kerry?
The fault line between them is reminiscent of that which divided the two parties during the 50s and 60s. It was the Republicans who confronted the communist threat. They understood that if we failed to defend our own interests, our enemies would bring the war to us.
With the fall of communism and the period of peacetime expansion that followed, it felt good to pretend that our society had triumphed over external threats, that we had achieved something complete, decadent, enduring. But the reality is that there are people out there who spend their days trying to figure out how to kill as many Americans as possible. And we must be realistic about identifying and dealing with these threats.
Lets not forget that there has not been a single terrorist attack on U.S. soil since this administration began taking it to the terrorists in earnest. We are winning this war. Building a pluralistic, democratic Iraq will facilitate the sort of strong economic ties that restrain future war. For the first time in 50 years, we have the chance to turn the Middle East into something other than an anti-American incubator of hate.
Every sensible legislator in this country Republican and Democrat realizes that. They read the intelligence reports coming out of the Middle East. I cant tell you how often Democratic legislators confide to me that hey are grateful for Bushs political courage.
This really represents quite a stunning change of events. Do you remember what the political climate was like when Bush took office? With the close election and questions of legitimacy floating around the zeitgeist, most political advisers urged Bush to scale back his campaign promises and focus instead on a small core of less ambitious issues. Shockingly, President Bush took the opposite approach. He mapped out a bold agenda for education and tax reform.
After September 11, that political courage and conviction crystallized into dominant leadership.
Last week our commander in chief again displayed his political courage by mapping out a domestic agenda that will redefine the traditional Republican message. His goals include increasing the funding for health insurance accounts for poor people, community health centers and hybrid cars; reforming our pension system, health care and the tax code and countless other initiatives that will further solidify his legacy as a transformational president.
In short, President Bush continues to present us with something that has become ever so rare in modern politics: genuine leadership.
She had a closed reduction on her wrist on Saturday, and is recovering, but still in some pretty good pain.
She's really mad that her car is gone, and the creep's father who hit her is going to fight his insurance' paying for it. (He was cited for reckless op on private property).
She's a feisty one, though, and will be just fine. :o)
OHH what cute doggie with Dubya HOW CUTEEE
OHH did you hear off Drudge guys look like Newsweek is calling Kitty Kelley liar by refuse excerpt her book they saying they investigate the book and Kitty is streching the truth
RE: Nat'l Guard--they're such fools, to keep bringing it up again! I think the Pres. should say he's not going to refer to either man's (girly man in the case of you-know-who) service, and challenge Kerry to do the same. He'll look like a fool if he won't agree, and if he does agree, and bring it up during the debates (which you know he'll try to) the Pres. can just refer him back to the agreement not to mention it.
Thanks Mike--I KNEW he wasn't AWOL, but I've never seen it said so briefly and clearly before. I'm going to print it out in case I ever need the info. I just hate to see such a wonderful man put down over something that happened or didn't happen more than 30 years ago, while meanwhile we have terrorists who want to kill us RIGHT NOW.
There wasn't a dry eye in the Garden that night! W gave a wonderful speech. People on the streets of NYC came up to us - with our Bush buttons - and said, "he won a lot of votes last night!" Music to our ears.
Oh my goodness! How did I miss knowing about this? Thank God she was not more seriously hurt. Prayers for a speedy recovery with no lingering effects. The ijut may try fighting it but your insurance co. will fight just as hard. The insurance lawyeres will fight it out. If the guy is at fault he can forget about it.
These Lepers on the left will drop like flies trying to pursue this bogus charge. I don't doubt for a second that George W. Bush didn't want to go to Vietnam, many didn't. But just because you joined the Guard or the Navy in hopes to avoid direct combat is not something to be ashamed of.
My oldest brother joined the Navy in 1966 because he didn't want to be drafted into the Army, John Kerry joined for the same reason, but my Brother didn't join with the intent to game the system for future political aspirations.
In everything I have read about George W. Bush's service in the ANG, he served quietly and served his country honorably as a Fighter Pilot. Not too shabby in my book.
The difference between George W. Bush's 5/12 years of service in the Guard and John Kerry's 4 months in Vietnam is that George W. Bush didn't leave the Military and join the other side
We really apreciate your wise contributions on this thread, MJY1288.
Coming from you!! I consider that a high compliment
A ping is like a page, only online. To check your pings, click on "Pings" on the "Forum" page (the page title becomes "My Comments" after you click on the link).
It stems from some procedure involved with finding stuff on the Internet and getting an "echo" -- a ping -- (kind of like Navy sonar) to let the prober know he hit a target.
I know what you mean about daffodils being happy little flowers. Trumpets of the great green season, Easter blessings, and so forth. Can you tell I love to garden? ;-)
TroutStalker, SuziQ (and barker) I have been under the radar lately. But a big cloud has been lifted from my life recently. You may even see me posting a little these days.
I just saw lagamorph tonight. We went to Jack Cashill's premier of "Mega Fix: The Dazzling Political Deceit That Led To 9/11".
Admin Mod: please do not admonish me because of restrictions on advertising. Jack Cashill is a favorite local conservative, and I have no financial interest in the success of his film. I only know he is the one who brought me from the dark side into the light. fsf
I didn't believe it either, when I first heard it. I had to ask a number of people before I was convinced.
I haven't heard about this flick, what's it about and who does it cast blame on?
HERE! HERE! Right on.
we visited Hawaii
Don't you have to be south of the equator for the rotation of the draining water to reverse? Hawaii is in the northern hemisphere isn't it?
Especially after the eight years of clinton hell. Free Republic was a research center during that time, once it started up (which I think was somewhere around 1994 - 96 -- blubba's first term). I think this site was begun because the owner, Jim Robinson, and like-minded FRiends, got the bum's rush over at Yahoo's message board for their anti-clinton attitudes. Being a massive proponent of free speech, JimRob took it upon himself to set this place up. It's evolved substantially and all for the good.
