By the way, I'm serious about loving Maine Coons. One of the very best cats I EVER had, was Anubis. HUGE but so gentle, put up with the crazy little Nefertiti cat constantly pouncing on him. Well one day, Anubis finally had enough, and when Nefertiti suprise-mugged Anubis YET AGAIN, Anubis clocks Nefertiti with a no-claw paw on the top of the head. No claws, more like a slap.

You could hear a THUNK sound in the next room, like a small hammer hitting a coconut.

Nefertiti was MUCH better behaved around the Majestic and Regal Anubis from then on. LOL

I didn't tear up, nobody saw me tear up, you can't prove anything!

It's ok. You're human. It's all good.

W just finished his speech, and the camera flashed to Laura, who looked like she hasn't stopped crying since the parents were honored.

Wow x a million. I'm just floored.

Let's rock and roll.

It was a team effort.

America and Iraq has shed a lot of blood. The Iraqi's risked their lives to stand down the terrorists. They could have left our soldiers and our leadership hanging by not coming out to vote.

They did and are doing their part.

I can only go by what he says... "equal footing side by side."

The fastest way to disable a terrorist regime is to cut off the money supply, not give them more money.

He could have made it sound like there will be more effort to elevate Israel's status to America to counterbalance that BS, but he didn't.

He's my President. He gave an excellent speech tonight and nailed the Dems, but after all that hard work for that lip service... feels like a knife in the heart.

I totally agree.

I think that the only other speech taht I can think of that comes close is the one on sept 20, 2001, and also his speech at the RNC in 2004. But WOWOWOWOWOWO was this a great speech.

*sigh* I am so glad to be an American and a Bush Babe!!

OK I will risk getting banned form here but you can KISS MY A$$! Some of those poor people died to vote. Eat SH!T and Shove it.

You're lucky; I've been getting Freepmails all through the speech telling me NOT to reply to the people on this thread who are telling lies about Bush's immigration program.

I'm suppose to just let them say whatever they want, unchallenged.

And from someone who has worked against Bush from day one.
