Thanks for the Dose today, Gretchen. Wooohooo...GWB and the midshipmen of Annapolis! I love the series of photos in post #9 because they add to our "man of a thousand faces" collection.

Thanks Gretchen, Today's speech was a grand slam home run and a historical speech that will be looked back on as the speech that crushed the detractors

THIS is the man whom God appointed to lead us at such a time as this........

Thank You, Father!

(And thank YOU, Gretchen, for bringing us these moving photos. The speech today was as strong and compelling as any the President has ever given).

Dear God I love this man who is pouring out his heart and soul, body, mind, strength, and spirit, to keep the charge God gave him, not only to uphold and defend the Constitution, but all who come under the glory of its provisions.

Me too Gretchen. I thought the very same thing as I watched him today. This nation is so fortunate to have him.

I just watched the speech for the first a few minutes ago and when Dubya got choked up over the letter left on the lap top, my screen got blurry. President Bush loves his troops, anybody who says otherwise, is lying

I have a short reprieve till Sabrina arrives. I took a couple pictures of her in a leopard costume which I will post if they turn out (new camera). She is precious.

I just got here from a thread where Billy Kristol is still asking for Rummy to be replaced...now, he wants him replaced by Joe Lieberman...

Sheesh! With the exception of Brit Hume, I am SO sick and tired of ALL pundits these days, whether on TV or talk radio. I have never liked Kristol, but he is now joined by an ever-lengthening list of talking heads who grate on me more and more these days.

Can someone help me please? THe White House site uses Real Player for videos but I deleted it because the guy who operaters Real is a moonbat and I don't feel like letting him benefit from my patronage. Now I can't enjoy my Dubya vids! :( Should I continue my boycott or just give in? TIA.

I saw that article from Kristol. He needs his meds adjusted. He's the main reason I won't subscribe to Weekly Standard.

It was live on C-Span today and when it ended, they announced that it would be repeated tonight at 8:00. I received a C-Span email with schedule and it also shows 8:00. However, we all know that you can't trust their schedule, but I would check, just to make sure.

I won't subscribe to the Weekly Standard, or any such "opinion leader" rag, because I'm tired of being preached to by the elite punditocracy. They are so trite, predictable, boring and, worst of all, fatheaded, that they irritate me no end these days.

I'm with you on that, Wolfstar. I still read Victor David Hanson and Michael Barone, but that's about it. After the katrina episode in which they all jumped off the cliff without checking the facts, I got really disgusted. Then they went hysterical over Harriet Miers, and I was finished with most of them.

Not at all -- I didn't know what you meant till I went back to the specific post - that's how slapdash I put the dose up tonight. Plus, the sinusitis has me a little ding-y.

It made me happy all day long to hear the president at his very best. It was fantastic and gave a level of detail most Americans have never heard.

The speech will help invest Americans in the war, imo, in a way they had not been invested before. During other wars, we were asked to sacrifice something or help in some way. This time, I think a lot of Americans are looking for ways to help and it would be great if a Republican would come forward with ideas about that too.

When you listen to him (I'm listening again), doesn't it make you wonder why anyone even disagrees with him, let alone hates him?

Everything he says is so logical and clear, and it's so obvious that he's being honest and that he cares.

There's a giant emptiness in the soul of anyone who hates this man....

Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed says President Bush's speech on the status of the war in Iraq fell far short of what it needed to be.

So embarrasing. Can't believe I live in such a liberal state.

They are bigger than ones I am used to thats why I thought I had better check. I have once seen very large ones but it is more normal to have them the size of satsumas.
