A Day in the Life of President Bush (photos) 2-14-07
Thwe White House; yahoo ^ | 2-14-07 | onyx

Posted on 02/14/2007 2:43:28 PM PST by onyx

Welcome to Sanity Island, where only adults are allowed.

President Bush held a news conference this morning in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007.

The entire text of his remarks and the Q & A session, complete with a video link can be found here. I might add, the text is really worth reading in its entirety. I will post a couple of highlights, including the smackdown of one particularly obnoxious reporter.

After a luncheon with SoD Gates, President Bush greeted and met with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in the Oval Office of the White House. The text of their remarks can be read here.

President George W. Bush greets Liberia's President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf during her visit Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007, to the White House. President Bush applauded the leader's confidence and deep concern for the people of Liberia, saying, "I thank you very much for setting such a good example for not only the people of Liberia, but for the people around the world, that new democracies have got the capability of doing the hard work necessary to rout out corruption, to improve the lives of the citizens with infrastructure projects that matter."

How nice! I would have gone out, but it's too cold and I am happy to stay in my 3 layers of clothing with the heat on.

That is one mighty fine-looking toaster, snugs. Thank you!

I still can't get over winning it today --- not even having it be a second-place tie. I feel like I got a special Valentine today.

Thank you for your work!
