A Day in the Life of President Bush (photos): 1.19.07
yahoo.com, whitehouse.gov ^ | Friday January 19, 2007 | GretchenM

Posted on 01/19/2007 4:40:49 PM PST by GretchenM

I found no new photos of the president today but there are some photos of Laura in Paris, at the conference on Missing and Exploited Children. As Tony Snow's assistant conducted the press briefing today, and the State of the Union address is next Tuesday, January 23rd at 9:00 PM EST, it seems likely it is crunch time for getting the address ready.

Defense Secretary Gates continues his visit to Iraq, in Basra and Talil, where he is being briefed.

Jay Hein, Director of the WH Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, discussed the President's compassion agenda and the recently launched Compassion in Action Roundtables.

Text of Dana Perino's press briefing today (information on SoTU).

Yes, by your reply I can tell you were the one I was thinking of.

Your bonus points answer about all the dead wood was amazing. Who would have thought the storm/s could have taken out so many trees?

Wow, thank you DCMB. I have the same problem -- I find it in one store and then they stop stocking it. The stuff is great and it was wonderful to finally find a soap that didn't gave me a migraine, regular headache, or irritate my skin. Thanks!!!!!

I must admit odd word here and there but nothing that would get me as a host to warn the poster.

I have had the odd freepmail from time to time saying we are not serious enough about issues that are somber such as awards for people who have died in action that on those days we should be more respectful.

I have read through the dose for those days and have felt there was nothing said that might offend but then some people like to find things to offend them they see it as their mission in life to restrict and repress others.

My previous post was not a criticism of you posting the request tonight as you have obviously had something more specific said to you but I must admit I have not noticed anything undue.

Coarse language? When was that

Glad you asked this. I've been lurking for a long time and posted just a little, but in the years I've been lurking I don't remember any curse words. What constitutes "coarse" language?

Hey everyone,
I really need some cheering up. Tomorrow is my birthday and I won't say how many. It is the first one without my brother, husband, and mother. This is the first time I have been so sad since their deaths. We are going out to eat tomorrow.

Question please. I just noticed I have a tag??? line? Is that the correct term for what's in parenthesis at the end of my name? If so, how did it get there? Just curious, cause I didn't write it. Not complaining just curious. Thanks. Mupcat.

Pick up a quick job doing magazine merchandizing. Go to your grocery store and ask who is the magazine company that provides your magazines. Then get the telephone number and call them. I guarantee that you will be hired.FReepmail me if you need help.

JimRob issues blank tag lines with your account activation. The only way I know to get a tag line behind your name is to type it there yourself. Does anyone else know your FR password?

Mama B, I just read this and like it very much, this last Christmas was my first without both parents, both died very young, my dad was 63, and my mom was 69.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory noone can steal!

***It seems to me that Democrats and the media were well aware of that fact. And used that knowledge to split a few percent of support from the Republican party.

I think the media knew what they were doing with Mexican immigration and Iraqi war coverage. It contributed to the Loss of the House and senate.***

***Your bonus points answer about all the dead wood was amazing. Who would have thought the storm/s could have taken out so many trees?***

It was a freak storm. It happened on Oct. 12th, waaaaaaaaay early even for up here in Western New York. The trees were in full leaf, and the weight of the snow on the leaves caused the trees to crack and go blam. Who would have thunk it? We thought we were hearing gunshots from every direction, then when we heard the crashes we knew it was trees falling all around us. Almost every street in the large town was impassable because of the trees in the streets.

Oh mercy, that leg lamp! One of my favorite lines is when Darren McGavin accuses his wife (correctly) of always hating it and purposely making it *accidentally* break. I have a friend who loves that movie as I do, and we quote lines from it all time, such as the Major Award reference, Fraaaa GEE lay, You'll shoot yer eye out, kid, etc.

Rachael Ray loves the movie and so one of her recent guests found a place that sells a replica of the leg lamp and she gave it to her on the show.

Simple Soap "to respect the needs of sensitive skin, Simple was developed as a range of products that are 100% perfume and colour free with no unnecessary ingredients"

That is very similar to soaps here such as Basis.

We all have preferences for how the Dose should go. I personally would like it to be more serious more of the time and be more about politics and less about recipes and stuff like that....... but it's merely a preference, and I understand others like to do other things here, and that's fine with me.

I also missed the offenses, but I'll admit that I don't have time to read every post, and that any bad language or truly coarse talk should never make its way onto the Dose.

It's PG, and should remain as such. :)

***I suspect you typed that comment in the tagline box instead of your reply box.***

That's exactly what I think. I am often surprised by what shows up in my tagline. In my case, it's because I move my mouse out of the way to do something else for a moment, and don't realize it isn't back where it was.

If you want ot remove what's in your tagline, just wipe it out, and then post "Ignore, just fixing my tagline."

Mama I just saw your post here.

There isn't much any of us can say. You have been through more than anyone should have to go through in one year, but I know that YOU know that the Lord has been with you each step of the way.

Your friends here will lift you up in prayer that God will give you the comfort that only He can give. God be with you, dear sister!

Very nice Dose tonight, Gretchen. Thank you and the rest of the Dose posters for your diligence in bringing our President and his administration into our homes!

I was anxious to get home tonight to tell you all about our wonderful President and how he feels about our troops and vice versa. I was hoping there would be pics of the President's very important guests today, but not surprised there was none. I may be getting some soon to share with you. ;*)

Today was "Tour the White House" day for our wounded heroes at Walter Reed. To state our troops and their families were excited would be a gross understatement.

When they arrived they learned President Bush had ordered the barriers and ropes be removed. As they wandered freely throughout the White House, President Bush emerged from the Oval office to visit with them. Seeing some ropes still up, he told the secret service agents to remove them. One lady said they were not happy about it and said, "But Mr. President..." President Bush firmly instructed all barriers removed so our troops could move around freely.

The President then spent several minutes chatting with EACH ONE of them. He spotted one soldier he had visited when he was still in the hospital and said, "Hey Tony! I see you have your new leg!" Tony and his fiance could not believe that the President of the United States would not only remember his face and name, but that he was missing a leg the last time he saw him.

Of course there were hugs and kisses for the ladies, much to their approval! One lady in a wheel chair allowed me to touch the top of her head where he had kissed her. ;*)

Offering words of encouragement and gratitude for their service, the Commander-in-Chief was a giant among men in the eyes of his troops.
