A Day in the Life of President Bush (photos) - 10.18.05
Whitehouse.gov, Yahoo.com | 10.18.05 | ohioWfan

This morning President Bush met with Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the Commission of the European Communities in the Oval Office at the White House.

This afternoon, the President met with Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, Cabinet Members and Legislators in the East Room of the White House to sign the Homeland Security Appropriations Act for 2006, which increases border security, and provides more detention facilities and speedier removal of illegal immigrants.

The White House website has provided a Fact Sheet with the details of the Appropriations Act.

Enjoy your trip to Sanity Island on the Daily Dose!!!

You are right with your thoughts that Rush hurt Bush 41 in 1992. He was a supporter of that Nutcase Pat Buchanan until after the primary. All the horrible liess that were said about 41 by Buchanan and Ross Perot and Clinton took its toll. That was the first year I listened to Rush and I remember it vividly. I think he distanced himself from Buchanan since.

I've had my ups and downs with Rush, there were times when I thought he was simply an ass, but over the past few years I have become a big fan of Rush's

I first heard him about 10 years ago. I thought he was the biggest bombastic ass I'd ever heard, and very anti-woman too. I later realized most of that was tongue-in-cheek and self-parody. I do think at times he has had a vein of anti-woman in him, but he's moderated that some.

In the last few years, I've listened to him pretty regularly and like him a lot, and take what he says seriously. But mostly I love to listen to him skewer the pompous buffoons on the left.

Rush would make a great political adviser for George Allen (our next President)

I got the impression from his interview with Sean, that Rush likes George Allen!

DrDeb.... Rush is no dummy, Reagan is his hero as he is mine, we all know the beating Reagan took from the media as they tried to define him over Iran/Contra, the media was not as brutal to Reagan as they are George W. Bush and I consider that a barometer of how great a conservative President will end up being in the history books.

Ronald Reagan will forever hold a special place in my heart, he was a father figure for me, I truly loved Ronald Reagan, when he died, a part of me did as well. But I am not blind to the facts. Ronald Reagan did not have to deal with anything close to the challenges this President has had to deal with, and Reagan made more crucial mistakes.... Before I post Reagan's mistakes, keep in mind that I love Ronald Reagan... But Reagan completely failed us when he pulled our troops out of Lebanon and he will be be partially held responsible for the lead up to 9/11 for that decision. Reagan also granted amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and he also doubled the size of the Federal budget in his 8 years.

George W. Bush has not backed down to any Terrorist acts, he has not granted Amnesty to illegals (The borders are more secure today than anytime in history) The size of the Federal budget has grown by 25% under George W. Bush, plus George W. Bush has had to deal with every national tragedy imaginable, probably not matched since Lincoln.

If we see Democracy spread through the Middle East over the next 10 years like what Reagan initiated in eastern Europe while he was the President. George W. Bush will go down in history as one of the best this great Nation has ever been blessed to have. All this carping over Miers and Rove or the bickering over spending and any other social policy will not be remembered, but his influence on the spread of Liberty will be taught in History Classes for generations to come.

I will say again what I have been saying for 4 years now.... When George W. Bush climbs aboard Marine One and waves to us Daily Dosers for the last time on January 20th, 2009, he will have changed the world for the better and his legacy of greatness will grow and grow for years to come.....MARK MY WORDS, we will miss this President terribly

I suspect that Jack Straw has probably requested to go to a football game as he is a great soccer fan and regularly attends his local team's games (Blackburn).

He probably wanted to sample live an American football match.

THANK YOU for you analysis of Reagan vis a vis GWB . . . What an excellent way to end my day!!

[Please e-mail your comments to Rush . . . I think he frequently forgets the realities of the Reagan presidency, making it easier for him to (unfairly) criticize GWB -- actually, that's a problem I have with many here at FR.]

Maybe part of the reason for that is a pure human one. Most of us either do or know people who look at friends, relatives or simple people we admire through rose tinted glasses especially after they have died or retired/become elderly. We even tend to do this to people that when they were in full vigor we actually criticized and argued with.

Oh, Sonny, do your old Mom proud. Give the hard-earned toaster to Mystery when she's back from the hospital so that you two can "toast" her new-found good health.

Great analysis, Mike! Lots of folks remember Reagan with rose colored glasses.

Both he and GWB are/were phenomenal Presidents, but our W has had much more to deal with. What he has had to lead us through would have crushed a lesser man.

I'll bet he has it available on his website or will be on Fox's website. You can also catch the replay....late night setting the recorder.

I hope to see the Rush on Broadway event on DVD or available for download on Rush 24/7. He discussed it as a "wait and see" item on his radio show today.

I heard him. He said he had no idea what he was going to say.

I perform and speak, and I always know EXACTLY what I'm going to say. I can't even imagine 'ad libbing' on Broadway!

Now THAT's confidence!

That's a pretty good assessment of the legacy GWB will leave on the world. One thing in particular strike me about him and Reagan is their optimism and comfort they gave to the country in times of great troubles.

Thanks OWF, I consider it truthful analysis, granted... the Middles East is far from seeing Democracy spreading, but I believe Iraq will be the conduit in the Middle East like Poland was for Eastern Europe.

The seed of Liberty has been planted in the Middle East and the proof is in the pudding.... We hear from the MSM that the Sunnis plan to come out in droves and vote down the Iraqi Constitution..... That is the proof.. and the MSM can even recognize it :-) THE SUNNI'S ARE VOTING and the MSM doesn't even see it as Democracy taking hold. By going to the Polls, the Sunni's have recognized that violence can't win the day, this is the beginning of the end for the insurgency in Iraq.

All of this is happening as the Liberals in the MSM are focusing on a fraud named Joe Wilson and a partisan hack in Texas named Ronnie Earle in the hopes of denying president Bush the legacy he has earned. Meanwhile, President Bush ignores them as he keeps his eye on the big picture and his goal of spreading the Liberty that God had intended for all of His children.

Many people see this current point in time as bad for President Bush... I totally disagree, these are defining times that separate the people who are serious and those who are not, and we know where they stand and where George W. Bush does.

The Miers nomination is another example of a leader, GWB isn't even afraid of his base, he made a decision and he is sticking with it, I think History will be kind to him on Miers as well :-)

LoL! There are differences, but I do see that being able to roam around the White House while Reagan was President rubbed off on him, especially in the way he holds respect for the office. One example, GWB and Reagan both always wear a jacket and tie to the office.
