Posted on 08/19/2006 2:37:44 PM PDT by Wolfstar

PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: President and Mrs. Bush are spending the weekend at Camp David. Look for the First Lady to be on the campaign trail a lot in the next few months. Republican National Committee spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said that Mrs. Bush is a significant draw wherever she goes, and is a critical asset to Republican candidates across the country. According to the RNC, so far this campaign season, the First Lady has appeared at 24 political events and raised $10.7 million for the party and Republican candidates. Last week, she campaigned in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.

THE WEEK AHEAD: Next week's daily scheduled was not announced by White House Press Secretary Tony Snow. However, next week the President will visit his family home in Kennebunkport, Maine, for the first time in two years. GWB and the First Lady are scheduled to arrive Thursday at Walker's Point, where they will be spending the weekend with GWB's parents at their summer retreat. The first couple will be in town to attend a relative's wedding, said Tom Frechette, spokesman for the president's father. While at Walker's Point, the President typically goes fishing and golfing.

EXTENDED SCHEDULE:

_ Sept. 7, First Lady Laura Bush will visit Norfolk to attend a campaign rally for U.S. Rep. Thelma Drake.

_ Sept. 14, President Bush will welcome President Roh Moo-hyun of the Republic of Korea to the White House.

_ Oct. 10, President Bush will welcome President Alan Garcia of Peru to the White House.

Sorry I baled out but I had a headache (I think I have not drunk enough today).

Had something to drink, fell asleep and just woken up - feel better now.

Be sure to stay hydrated, Snugs. Is it hot in your locality now? If so, it's especially important to drink plenty of fluids.

Over here there's been a summer cold making the rounds. I had it the past 10 days and am only just getting past it.

I know what you mean about the themes in a way I missed this this year during August because each of my days there were new photos to post what with the President "being seen to work whilst at the ranch this year".

In a way this also annoyed me that due to press pressure although anyone with one brain cell really knows that the President is always appraised of the situation and is never really off work but this year because of the Katrina hate last year was obliged to have photo ops at least 3 times a week during a very brief 10 day break at the ranch. Break all it was he basically spent the night at ranch instead of the White House and had the occasional day for relaxation.

How would the average American react if you told them out of their 10 day vacation they could only spend 2 or 3 days doing what they want. I know how a Brit would yet they still buy in the Blair is on holiday rubbish. Yes he may have flown to the Caribbean but his holiday will be much more work based than most Brit's everyday at work day is and as for their 2 week in the sun that is sacrosanct to them.

Rant off

No it is not that hot that was the problem I did not feel thirsty or hot.

I am not good at the best of time at drinking enough fluids except at work but when at home I do not drink enough.

Serves me right - naughty girl. Now of course after lying down with headache am awake and do not feel tired. So will do a little surfing and then have another drink and go to bed.

Hi homemom - I fixed a scrumptious dinner and ate too much of it. Orange chicken, fried potatoes and onions, and lima beans. Now I'm paying for my gluttony. How are you?

Thanks for all the photos, but the second one on post #9, with all the troops reaching for and touching Pres. Bush, is really great - and it makes me think his Secret Service men must go crazy at these events where he just plunges into the crowd. LOL!

You gave me your beefburger recipe a while back but I seem to have lost it.

Could you please send it to me again. Also could you use lamb, pork or turkey mince instead of beef as dad does not eat beef?

Very cool that while the Prez hugs a soldier (I cry when he does that) the soldier next to him is on the phone to tell of his nearness to the Commander in Chief!

The bravest, most brilliant people on this planet are members of the U.S. military! Thank God for each of them!

No rant at all. What you said is stone cold true.

The last time if my memory serves me right was for a family wedding.

There are a lot of Bush and Walker cousins. Walker was the maiden name of George Herbert Walker Bush, if I'm not mistaken. I think Walker's Point belonged to her family and went into the Bush family on her marriage to Prescott Bush.

Anyway, that's a long way of saying there are plenty of cousins from both sides of the Bush-Walker family, plus GWB's mother, Barbara's, family.

Sounds like me. I have to consciously make myself drink enough fluids through the day.

Absolutely. I was very frustrated the last 10 days having this cold at this time. :(

That seems to be the consensus favorite among the group I posted yesterday. It's a great shot, that's for sure.

I love that photo. (If I were eligible for a toaster, that would be the one I'd want.) You're right...it's so interesting to see the contrast between the soldier hugging the President and the one next to him on the cell phone. He's probably describing the scene to his mom or wife or best buddy. Extremely poignant, especially since the soldiers were on their way to Iraq and harms way.

Good question. Thanks for telling me, because even I, an inveterate news hound, didn't hear that news. But, of course, the MSM is not biased to the Left. Ummmmhummm...no way. Not at all. [/sarc]

I saved that one because Dubya stood out in the blue shirt and had his characteristic sunny smile that I love so much.

If you like photos of Dubya interacting with the troops, there's a beautiful photo of him running like an excited boy to greet a group of troops. I forgot to save it, but it wasn't posted long ago. Maybe if you ask around, someone will post it again.
