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!!!

Sorry for the delay...had to go check on the troops.

I dropped out of the political scene years ago. 9-11 caused me to begin to pay attention. That is of course, when I "met" President Bush. I became more attentive but not active, until the last Presidential election.

While putting all the pieces together in my mind as to who exactly that "thing" was trying to remove my President from the WH, I also got to "know" the President much better.

Vietnam Veteran and a Marine ...

Yours was a cousin...mine is my ex. He faired better than your cousin, physically anyway, but the treatment was the same. I abhor what the same old ragamuffins are trying to repeat today. Not on my watch, not this time. I was to young and naive 35 years ago - no more.

LEADERSHIP HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH POPULARITY

Another great statement. Thanks Mike

How true Mike and in any other realm apart from politics this statement is taken as read. Whoever heard of a captain of industry or top scientist as actually being a popular man. Some might say fair with their dealings with people but the fact that they demand excellence and will not compromise means that they are rarely popular.

Very good summary of the situation. God loves Dubya--why wouldn't He? W's on His side. W's like a big elephant. He just keeps moving while all the yapping little dogs snap at his heels. Many of us can't yet appreciate him. We are watching a real king and how a real king of freedom operates. (He walks like a Texan and speaks like a Texan, but he is a Renaissance Man. Beware quick judgments of him and his nominees. You may just be too shallow to fathom his depth.)

Hi Mike .. I believe Patrick Fitzgerald is a Dem .. but his reputation is solid .. that he's a straight shooter, loyal to the law. The speculation and leaking on this issue .. when Fitzgerald is known for absolutely prohibiting leaks .. is bizarre. I'm wondering if he's planting traps.

You could be correct, but I heard the dems say (just today) he was a republican appointed by Ashcroft for the job

We're all wrong .. LOL

Fitzgerald is careful to be apolitical in his targets and his public life alike. He registered to vote as an Independent in New York, only to discover, when he began receiving fundraising calls, that Independent was a political party. He re-registered with no affiliation, as he did later in Chicago.

He spit fire last year when reporters asked whether the racketeering indictment of Muhammad Hamid Khalil Salah, a fundraiser for the Islamic militant group Hamas, was timed to boost President Bush's reelection campaign. The case was trumpeted first by Attorney General John Ashcroft.

"I am not running for an election. I'm not part of a political party," Fitzgerald said at the time. "The election is irrelevant to this case. The reason we brought this case now is we're ready to proceed."

==========================

The article is DEFINITELY worth reading ..The Prosecutor Never Rests

I've read a lot about Patrick Fitzgerald and his character, and if someone committed a crime, whether God forbid in the White House or not, I feel pretty confident that he'll find out .. I just pray it's no one in the White House.
