You can listen to him online.. WABC out of New York streams his show everyday
I think Sean could improve his radio show tremendously if he wouldn't repeat things so much, and interrupt his guests with who the guests will be that night on tv. He makes me think of a friend who you do like despite the annoying things he does!
Amen to that Mike
You're one of the awesome band of conservatives who can still support the President, though there might be a disagreement or two.
I've got a bond with Bush, formed in the tears and fire of 9/11. I won't walk out on this man and will give him the benefit of the doubt, when in doubt.
Things have literally been chaos since I first came back to AZ in September and ithas just been one thing after another and most of it has been quite good, but good stress is still stress...
I hope you don't mind a few pix of my favorite good stress...
This is my daughter and a scan of the Mother's Day card for snugs:
This is the most freakish in coincidental events. You see, it was the tag on my Mother's Day gift. It was my first Mother's Day as a grandma and my first Mother's Day as a mommy was so sad because I had lost my own mom during the pregnancy and had the post-partum depression and could barely walk after the most agonizing torture of having my first child.
The oddity is that the brand name is the names of my son and of my mom...
And here is my adorable grandson, who managed to make the first Mother's Day for my DIL one of the happiest memories for all of us...
He is working on hitting for the cycle by making sure all major milestones are on memorable days and he literally learned to sit up on his own overnight...
The graciousness of these people under the most scurrilous non-stop attacks shows people a lot ... the fact that they refuse to sink to the level of their attackers speaks volumes about their individual and collective character ... the unflinching character which is the hallmark and the standard of this President. This decency cannot be faked, and it will have enduring positive returns.
Exactly. I certainly don't agree with President Bush on every issue, but I don't expect to agree 100% with any other human being on this planet. He's human and imperfect, like all of us. But regardless of the issue I will never put up with the bashing, on FR or anywhere else. There are definitely no alternatives that I would prefer. This presidency is one of greatness, and I believe history will show that.
WHAT A CUTE LITTLE GUY!!!
I caught the last few questions on a Cspan replay. He was great, and the press seem to be flattered that one of them (ahem) is at the podium. Also, they seem to be either on a honeymoon period with Tony, or somewhat in awe of him. Time will tell which it is.
Anyway, he had dignity, humor, and aplomb. He wasn't afraid to shut them down, politely but firmly, when they were asking stoopid questions.
Even the most stanch democrat would tell you that no matter how much they agree with John Kerry, that the guy is a stone asshole. That's worth 50K votes in Ohio all by itself.
Sean must not be old enough to remember Reagan, otherwise he would be calling himself a GWB Conservative, because this President is more of a Conservative than Reagan was. And don't get me wrong, I love Ronald Reagan and consider him one of the greatest leaders of all time, but the argument (or myth) that Ronald Reagan was a Limited Government Conservative is not based on facts. RR was a LEADER and PROMOTER of the Conservative movement, but he governed at a time when Conservatism was not accepted as the norm, so he governed from the middle while promoting the right and the Conservative movement.
He managed to pull this off like nobody in history, and while he did so, he made all of us love our country again as well as making the word "Liberal" a dirty word :-)
"I dunno what he was singin' but I was tappin' my foot."
That "Reagan Conservative" stuff from Sean gives me pause also. When I first listened to him, before he went national, he would say he was a libertarian. That went to Republican, then Conservative, and now it's Reagan Conservative.
One thing I don't understand though, is why people go to the live Sean thread here on FR and bash him. I don't know why they can't just leave it alone, there are off buttons on radios.
Thanks STARWISE, I love John Howard! I LOVE PRESIDENT BUSH!
Me 2 .. what a standup and outstanding man. God bless him for standing by our side through the WOT.
I paid attention to what George W. Bush was promising me in 1999 and 2000 and although I didn't think he was as Conservative as I would like, I decided he was who I would vote for in the Primaries and support him against Al Gore.
George W. Bush has not broken a single promise he made to me or this country, I voted for him despite my differences and I respect him for not abandoning his promises, despite the pressures from his so called "Base". His leadership after 9/11 is something I will never forget and always be grateful for.
The burden this man has had to bare since he was elected can only be compared to Abraham Lincoln and much like Lincoln, GWB is not somebody who looks at popular polls to figure out where he wants to lead the country. His steadfast principles will ensure his place in history as one of the greatest and I will probably not live long enough to see the history books give him the credit he deserves, but I have no doubt that his place in history is assured
Recording it now :-)
Long story and either I would be given a tinfoil hat or kudos for what I do/did...
I got the video done in time for Mother's Day, but have baby detail all week and will probably not get the label on it or get to the post office until next week.
"And I LOVE that only 18% didn't like his speech last night! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM was on FR last night!!"
Yes, and I ran in to a few of them - -but you'll be proud to know I held my own (in a nice way). Just lay out the facts and they want to take their ball and go home ;-)
Thanks for the great pictures this evening! I kept switching to C-Spin thinking they'd have it on, but, of course, they didn't (I'm sure they would have if it had been Bubba). The good news is that I got to see most of Tony's 1st Presser. He did GREAT - - just like I thought he would. Thanks again for the super thread over the weekend, too!
Good post MJY1288 !
He is just the most wonderful thing...and loves the camera.
He loves it so much that when we took a few pictures of his eyes rolling while drinking his bottle (a formulaholic that gets bottle intoxicated) he woke up and decided that he wanted to ham it up by trying to hold the bottle himself and pose, but grandpa had put theh camera down and Noah couldn't hold the bottle and after a few attempts (even with his feet...with grandma's help) and no camera ... he got a bit upset and switched to the pacifier.
CSPAN2 -- John Howard state dinner - NOW
aaawwwww, well he's very much the cutie!
He's fabulous .. Pres. Bush is toasting him now.
I just tuned in
this is a great toast to Australia and John Howard
Maybe a little bit of age difference between his wife and the dress she is wearing.
Yes. OK. meow
These words by John Howard have me ready to sing the National Anthem
I like Howard .. he is saying such nice things about America and how he values our friendship
LOL .. or Proud to be an American
I don't know if I can remember a better compliment bestowed on our Country than what I just witnessed from John Howard
Ladies' basketball WMBA champs at the White House .. I wanna that ring he was wearing or something on his finger in the pictures up top.
I am so glad that I'm recording this :-)
I made a hilarious video for Mother's Day with all of his ham pix and will mkae a Father's Day one with the pix from MOther's Day.
It only took a few seconds before he forgot about the bottle and pictures. Then he was back to his cheery self.
I agree .. I don't remember one like that either
He didn't just say thank you, like others do .. he said he was Proud to call us a friend
Thank You John Howard
Sorry Snugs, I just wasn't thinking! Good luck getting those speakers hooked up!
Ahhhhh...that second picture...absolutely gorgeous! He just gets more handsome all the time! BTW...I swiped it! You knew I would.
I have missed being here because of vacation. Thanks for the thread and for really being Sanity Island!
Hi Luv - how are you! Long time no see. ;*)
Tony was awesome! I have saved the link to his presser if we need it posted here. Although, I haven't read this whole long thread...someone else might have already done it.
Happy Freeperversery PD. 3 years of brilliant analysis of the day's events. As MJY1288 said "you're a great asset to this forum." You have my thanks as well.
That being said let me now embarrass you with my adoration by proclaiming the ridiculous. The reason why the President doesn't respond to criticism is the drop in the President's poll numbers is advantageous to the GOP. The right fringe abandonment of Dubya ( yeah, like they ever supported him ) is giving the rats fuel to impeach. My tagline 4 months ago was "The rat 06 election platform will be a promise to impeach the President if they win." That is coming.
The base may not accept Dubya as a conservative but they will rally around him against the rats. I predict a good outcome in Nov, and at worst we will retain power.
I know...and I've missed being here. I took a trip with a group of FReepers and we didn't have much time to be on-line. It was an awesome trip and we had a blast. It was like we had known one another forever!
Good to see you! (((hugs)))
