Nope - just tooooooo busy. But I check in and read up on everyone in the morning. I really miss being here in the evenings. Even when I do stop in, it's usually just for about 15 minutes. Not really enough time to chat much.

RE: Rumsfield:"This President is almost a victim of the success he has had with preventing another attack on America."

^^^^^^

I stopped reading Peggy Noonan's columns when she turned against President Bush but today I happened to see an excerpt of her words in the Washington Times. Paraphrased, President Bush does not look like the war is affecting him, because he almost always has a serene demeanor.

She is showing her lowclass roots when she is so snide. I guess she would be happier if he collapsed in a depression.

That was so awesome! I wish they could have removed some of the background noise.

I plan to watch the re-run with paper and pen. Our guys had some amazing things to say.....off the tip of top of their heads, not prepared remarks.

They sure liked what jon carry had to say, huh? LOL!

Hi mystery! Just got home from a meeting and caught just a bit of Sean with the troops. Toward the end of tonight's show, Sean asked 'why' the soldiers do this hard job....one soldier just got to my heart...he said something to the effect...'this may sound trite'...but "we love our country". The liberals and media just can't understand this....seems patriotism is not an "in thing" these days.
Our soldiers NEED to know how much we love and appreciate them ...cause they protect the country that we, too, love.

At this point...I am hoping that the MSM may be "killing" their golden goose by giving him too much hype and exposure.

I can't believe that even the liberals wouldn't be sick of him after 2 years of having him on the news EVERY night!

Even Pres. Bush doesn't get as much news time as Osama Obama anymore.

Don't know, but both he and his wife hosted the same show last year. And Mrs. Dr. Phil (lol) hosted the White House decoration thing last week. They must be best buds.


December 2005, President and Mrs. Bush sing "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing!" along with Dr. Phil McGraw, his wife Robin, left, and Carrie Underwood, right, during the 24th Annual Christmas in Washington at the National Building Museum in downtown Washington D.C.
