QUOTE OF THE DAY – President Discusses G8 Summit, Progress in Africa Meyer Auditorium at Freer Gallery Washington, D.C.

QUOTE

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all. Thanks a lot. Please be seated. Thanks for the warm welcome. It's a pleasure for Laura and me to join you here at the Smithsonian, where America's heritage is kept and where the achievements of all cultures are celebrated.

I want to -- I appreciate our Secretary of State who has joined us today. Condoleezza Rice, I'm proud you're here. Thanks for joining us. You're doing a fabulous job, by the way. (Applause.)

Next week, I'm going to head to the G8 summit in Scotland. Out there, I'll meet with leaders of the industrialized nations. As in earlier meetings, we will discuss the great political and economic progress being made in Africa, and the next steps we can take with African leaders to build on that progress. The whole world will benefit from prosperity and stability on the African continent. And the peoples of Africa deserve the peace and freedom and opportunity that are the natural rights of all mankind

We seek progress in Africa and throughout the developing world because our interests are directly at stake. September the 11th, 2001, Americans found that instability and lawlessness in a distant country can bring danger to our own. In this new century, we are less threatened by fleets and armies than by small cells of men who operate in the shadows and exploit weakness and despair. The ultimate answer to those threats is to encourage prosperous, democratic and lawful societies that join us in overcoming the forces of terror -- allies that we're finding across the continent of Africa. We fight the war on terror with our power; we will win the war on terror with freedom and justice and hope. (Applause.)

Across Africa, people who were preparing to die are now preparing to live. (Applause.) And America is playing a role in so many of those miracles. We're a nation that repays our blessings with generosity to others. When we work with Africans to bring food to starving regions, and malaria treatments to remote villages, and miracle drugs that restore the dying to strength, this is part of our calling in the world. (Applause.) And as we answer that call, it makes us proud to be Americans.

Thanks for coming. May God bless you. Thank you all. (Applause.)

With and without the umbrella on Tuesday at Pope Air Force Base in North Carolina this was because he had given it to James Stitt who wasn't prepared for the rain and instead got wet himself. Once again GWB shows he is a good kind and wonderful human being.

Here is the information from Dr Deb posted last night that gives more of this heart warming story.

STITT GETS VOLUNTEER AWARD, UMBRELLA FROM PRESIDENTesident

By Kevin Maurer Staff writer

James Stitt wasn't prepared for the rain Tuesday as he stood on the tarmac at Pope Air Force Base waiting for Air Force One.

Stitt was told last week that he would meet President Bush when he arrived at Fort Bragg to give a speech about the war in Iraq. On Tuesday, Bush presented Stitt with the President's Volunteer Service Award - but not before giving Stitt an umbrella.

Bush arrived at 3:15 p.m., holding a dark green umbrella against the steady rain.

He thanked Stitt for his service and congratulated him on the award.

"He had to walk in the rain to his car after he gave it to me. It was really nice of him," Stitt said. "It is just like another award."

She uses her maiden name have no idea why but when you see name plates at conferences etc it always shows the name Cheney. Maybe she feels especially in the middle east this is advantageous.

Hi, snugs .. thanks for Dose! I'm loving Condi's new hairstyle .. very much more becoming on her. Her suits must number in the dozens .. she really is quite a fashion plate. But where's Laura?

I didn't hear what Delay's plans are for dealing with our "activist judiciary?" Anyone hear?

Found this, and just love it .. HAPPY DOSING and
