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!

LOL

Indeed whilst she may not share all the view of the President compared to many others she is indeed a friend of the administration.

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.

*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.

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.

President Bush has threatened to use the pen, I hope he does, but the Repubs are just as guilty with the pork.

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.

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.

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.

Indeed IMHO the best friends we have whether in business, politics or personal are those that often do not agree with all our views but those who are not afraid to voice the differences in a gracious way that does not affect the friendship.

I am certain deeper and longer friendships are forged they those who slavishly agree with everything each other say because in reality that is never possible.

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.

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.

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.

I know and for that brief moment politics is forgotten and it is 2 grandfather together and one grandfather appreciating what all kids like to get many signatures and if possible someone famous. Regardless of the fact the VP is on the other side politically to his grandfather he will proudly show that signature off knowing that no other kid at school will have had such an important one on their cast.

Nice to see Ms. Merkel here today, too. The President had a busy day.....

You are so right. What a neat moment for both the child and the grandfather. The boy has a great 'show and tell' for school!

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.

Thanks again!

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 ....

very disappointing.
