QUOTE OF THE DAY: From the Press conference: Question - Mr. President, first. The Prime Minister is sometimes, perhaps unfairly, characterized in Britain as your "poodle." I was wondering if that's the way you may see your relationship? And perhaps, more seriously, do you feel for the --

PRIME MINISTER BLAIR: Don't answer "yes" to that question. If you do, I would be -- (laughter.) That would be difficult.

Question - Do you feel, for the strong support that Britain has given you over Iraq, that you have to pay back Britain for that support in some way?

PRESIDENT BUSH: "The Prime Minister made the decision he did because he wanted to do his duty to secure the people of Great Britain. That's why he made the decision. Plenty capable of making his own mind. He's a strong, capable man. I admire him a lot. You know why? When he tells you something, he means it. You spend much time with politics, you'll know there's some people around this part of the -- this kind of line of work where they tell you something, they don't mean it. When he says something, he means it. He's a big thinker. He's got a clear vision. And when times get tough, he doesn't wilt. When they -- when the criticism starts to come his way -- I suspect that might be happening on occasion -- he stands what he believes in. That's the kind of person I like to deal with. He is a -- I'm a lucky person, a lucky President, to be holding office at the same time this man holds the Prime Ministership.

These are troubled times. It's a tough world. What this world needs is steady, rock-solid leaders who stand on principle. And that's what the Prime Minister means to me."

I really love this first picture. What distinguished men they are. I swell up with pride when I see them! I imagine this picture being in history textbooks years from now. *sigh* Makes me happy!

What a great thing to say about and for a man who has stood by you in the fight. It really emphasizes Blair's courage and W's loyalty which is one of his greatest attributes.

I was hoping for the toaster today but got caught lurking at Arafat's last will and testament.

Maybe next week.


Thanks for the dose!

Our dear President is really reveling in his mandate! I can't wait for the next four years to unfold.
