Today the President met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the Oval Office and later made a statement to the press.
Both the President and Vice President took part in a secure video teleconference with Iraq's Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki from the newly-renovated Situation Room at the White House.
The President spoke with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md) (L), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) (C) and House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Oh George W. Bush on a telephone conference call at the start of the 110th Congress
Today Vice President Dick Cheney took part in the Senate re-enactment swearing-in ceremony for the 110th Congress
Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island
I will be traditional and take mine down tomorrow being 12th night
I sure am glad you said that about the VETO.
I think that all of the time...but, I just have always figured thinking conservatives would figure that out!
Oh..yeah...they already had 3-4 Senators talking about it on the Senate floor today.
All of them have a family member or a really good friend (they say)...that they KNOW would be healed if we just had FEDERAL FUNDING of embryonic stem cell research...even though the results show NO such thing.
What 'book' is Joe using for his swearing in??? Looks awfully thick.
it looks like every capillary in teddy's face is broken!!!!!!!!!!
Would it be the Torah?
i didn't know socialist had a book to swear on!!
*rolling my eyes* I have a friend like that. She always seems to know someone who relates to any political story. I find it a little difficult to believe. Not to mention annoying.
Yeah, I haven't seen anything about embryonic stem cell research that convinces me it would solve the world's problems. I understand that a lot of people really hope it would but the research just doesn't back it up.
" Hey little backward Britain beat you to it as we have already had a women speaker."
Lady Thatcher is leagues above our pitiful Pelosi. We need to learn a lesson from the Brits.
don't forget that magic 60 votes needed in the senate...they ain't got 'em!!!!!!
"Both Rockefeller and Byrd look like they've been embalmed."
Forgot Kennedy, at the top of the list.
After looking at that parade of fools and villians, the famous quote from Edward Everett Hale is in order:
"Do you pray for the Senators, Dr. Hale?"
"No, I look at the Senators, and pray for the country."
Mystery, I read an article about President Ford, and he was known for using his veto pen. 'Cause the Democrats liked to do too much spending. He was a fiscal conservative according to the article I read.
hhmmm could be, I dom't know any Jewish people to ask, but I wouldn't think it's that thick.
President Bush has threatened to use the pen, I hope he does, but the Repubs are just as guilty with the pork.
Definitely. And with Johnson still out, they *barely* have a majority.
Maybe Joe is using a Torah.
it looks like every capillary in teddy's face is broken!!!!!!!!!!
Scotch and wearing shirts with too small of collars will do that to you after time.
A lot of people are guilty with the pork. I imagine that was true in Ford's presidency as well.
If he uses it, it ought to be for something important like the WOT. Of course, there are lots of things that I think of as important, and deserving of a veto.
I seem to remember GHWB used the veto pen very effectively as well, that is how Dan Quayle was such a big help. He advised GHWB when he should use the veto, when it would stick. I think they never overrode one of GHWB's vetoes.
with all the articles about Johnson's health and taking months...wonder if the state of SOuth Dakota will have a recall, or whatever they have to do to get a senator in office.
I did read that about Ford during the last couple of days, but you have a good memory re GWHB and Quayle.....who btw was a hottie..I got to meet in person...
If Johnson resigns or becomes incapacitated(sp), then the governor of SD (a Republican) chooses a replacement.
I thought the governor could only name a replacement if Johnson resigns.
Nah, Kennedy doesn't look like he's been embalmed. He looks like he's in the final stages of decomposition.
***I will be traditional and take mine down tomorrow being 12th night***
She doesn't have to share all the President's views. It's enough that she's a friend.
The only people who demand that someone share all their views are very young children, the rigid hardline fools we see too much of here on FR.
Sorry for delay in getting extra photos up but was helping dad to bed please feel free to post any photos or graphics while I am gettng the last few
It might be if it were a special one say like a family one - think of the size of some of the family bibles.
That was a wonderful Dose in Review and I bookmarked it! There were so many wonderful pictures to go through, I will need more than one sitting to get through it! LOL!
Thanks for this thread....the president looked fit as he was visiting with the German Chancellor!
I should be traditional about it, but ... well, in my Church, Christmas starts on the 24th and ends on the 12th.
In my life, Christmas starts on Thanksgiving and by January 1, I'm just plain sick of it.
We got to meet Quayle as well, in a Wendy's in downtown Fort Wayne...
We voted for him too.
One of my hobbies is history and I read lots of history books. I have a long memory on Quayle because I got to vote for him every time he ran for office except one. We lived in his district. My husband was thrilled to meet him. I read someone's thesis about how people govern after being elected, and one of the subjects was Quayle.
Ahhh, Miss America Pelosi...we are going to have to see much more of her than I would like to, I'm afraid! Ugh!
I was thinking about Quayle today in connection with the Main stream media's ability to totally taint a person's reputation.
They managed to make Gerald Ford, probably the best athlete who's ever been president, into a clumsy oaf who couldn't climb stairs and they managed to make Quayle out to be a goofball over an insignificant error in a spelling bee.
Yet, when one thinks of what they tolerate and ignore in the dems, it's ... mind boggling, as Rush would say.
I agree, snugs. I would value a friend much more who trusts me enough to feel comfortable disagreeing with me from time to time, graciously, as you said.
That's only true if you avoid politics. If you talk politics with a liberal, they will never, ever forgive you for being conservative.
I easily forgive them for being liberal, so I don't get it, but that's the way it is.
Damn get well Mr Former President
He going be in hospital for day he get out right I hear that from other Freepers DAMN Bush 41 is tough old bird
These pictures are so cute, Snugs!
Do you think that is because for them often it becomes their religion and is therefore the most important thing in their world and they are so convinced that this is the only way.
Seriously. Besides, I don't need the news to tell me that the dems were taking over today. And I certainly didn't need any Pelosi biographies.
Hi, all....Thanks, Snugs....GREAT dose.....even if the opposition gets to be here too.....guess it's good to get a start on getting used to the next 2 years.
Nice to see Ms. Merkel here today, too. The President had a busy day.....
Thanks for your work today, Snugs. This can't have been one of the more fun ones to put together! I did love GWB's blue tie, though. :) That was a bright spot! Prayers up for quick healing for GHWB. My parents both said that they noticed his limp the other day at the funeral.
Yes, it is their religion and they feel nothing but contempt for people who don't see things their way.
I just happened to click on a thread about an incident at the border and I literally could not believe the Bush hatred on that thread.
It was like something on the Dem underground. This Day in the Life thread was mentioned with derision and we were all dismissed as Bush-worshiping idiots.
I didn't bother to even post. Not one person on that thread had a good thing to say about our President. I know they are all border control fanatics but still ....
sad when people cannot agree to disagree without either falling out or being unpleasant and often irrational
