PRESS BRIEFING BY TONY SNOW TODAY. IT'S A MUST READ. Tony is a saint and a very smart one too.
Old Navy has a website too. I'm OBSESSED with that store. It's the only place I can find jeans that fit me well.
I'm going to Howlin's house for a week --- and she's taking me to Washington, D.C. for two days during my stay.
Thank goodness... I really need some "sanity"!
The bashers are out in force today. Every time I resolve to ignore them... grrrrr.
Ah! Cool! :)
I actually don't mind doing housework. It's the dusting that I don't really care for. LOL
Thank you for posting the DOSE tonight . . . LOVE the 'GQ' photo of our President -- a definite 5-fan alert!!
Interesting: A day after many on the Right cheered the return of our COWBOY PRESIDENT (of course, he never left), GWB decides to wear his boots -- post #39!!!!
FYI: For those of you who believe the President has lost the support of his BASE [NEVER confuse the hate-filled poseurs at FR with the BASE!], read Rasmussen's polling results from today . . . The President boasts an almost 80% JA rating among Republicans -- and this from a pollster who ALWAYS under-reports the President's Republican support!
MUST READ . . .

"The battle lines are drawn - so, what is going on here?
My view is that the Democrats - naturally - just want to completely encircle and then ruthlessly bombard the White House from now until election day, 2008. Democrats know they don't have the votes to really enact any of their agenda items, so the whole plan it to just make it impossible for the President to do anything, and then wait until the inevitible election of a Democrat who will clear the way for a slew of Democratic laws come 2009. That, at least, is the plan, as far as I can determine.
In service of this plan, the Democrats will push and push and push with their ability to investigate the White House via Congressional committees and their precious power of subpoena. By dragging aide after aide before the cameras for hostile interrogations (and we know how it works - if someone asks a quesiton or provides an answer Democrats don''t want, then the Chair will just talk all over it, and the MSM can be relied upon to cut away to a commercial whenever anyone looks like they are scoring points against the Democrats) the hope is that the works will be so gummed up that all President Bush and team will be able to do is fend off the attack...and, as an added benefit, start to look ever more guilty in the eyes of the American people (working on the "hey, if there's all these accusations, some of them must be true" mentality of people who don't pay close attention). The only thing needed for this to work is the cooperation of the White House, and the President is showing that he's not going to play that game.
With the surge in Iraq showing more and more promise (and keep in mind that it won't peak until June - so as good as things are now, they'll be even better by June), President Bush needed to break the domestic siege of the White House, and the Democrats overplaying their hand on the US attorneys issue has given President Bush his opportunity. If there's anything which will rile up the GOP base it will be the prospect of cruel and corrupt Democrats going on a political witch-hunt against Republicans. What Democrats like Waxman and Leahy don't seem to understand is that their mere appearance (oily, two-faced and clearly dishonest in intent) raises GOP hackles. Its not that we mind a clear airing of all issues, but we know full well that the only point the Democrats have is to damage the GOP. It is way past the time when any GOPer will assume any senior Democrat to be playing fair...just to much muck over the dam for us to fall for that.
So, lets have at it - let us break this politica siege and show these Democrats that they won by luck last year, not by skill and certainly not on their agenda."
FOR THOSE WHO MAY HAVE MISSED AN AWESOME POST FROM THE ANCHORESS:
You didnt see this on the news. You didnt read about it in the paper.
Its the wrong president, of course. Were this President Clinton - or any President with a D after his name, the breathless and moving coverage would have been wall-to-wall.
But this is only President Bush comforting the grieving students of a high school ravaged by a tornado so do you didnt read it anywhere. You didnt see it on the news.
Read the story, check out the pictures. REACQUAINT YOURSELF WITH A PRESIDENT YOU ARE NEVER ALLOWED TO SEE WITHOUT HEAVY MEDIA ANTI-FILTER . . . BECAUSE WHEN YOU SAW HIM UNFILTERED, YOU LIKED HIM TOO DAMN MUCH.
A RE-POST (Because most of us don't remember our history):
HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE . . .
Predictably, 'purist' conservatives and 'Freepers' have chosen to attack rather than support the President during this difficult time . . . What did 'conservatives' think was going to happen after the 2006 elections? Weren't we all warned?
BTW: Does anyone remember what happened to Reagan and his administration in 1987 and most of 1988?!
Well, I do; it was a nightmare! If you recall, Reagan was so politically and personally shaken by the Iran-Contra scandal, the Stock Market crash and the resulting Democrat/media feeding frenzy that the White House DRASTICALLY curtailed his public appearances (PARTICULARLY his press conferences).
Additionally, Reagan was 'forced' to make MULTIPLE changes in both his cabinet and White House staff:
CHANGES IN PRESIDENT REAGAN'S CABINET, 1987
--Carlucci replaced Casper Weinberger at Defense
--new Secretary of Commerce
--new Secretary of Labor
--new Secretary of Transportation
Shortly thereafter, Thornburgh replaced Meese at Justice to become Reagan's THIRD Attorney General.
CHANGES IN PRESIDENT REAGAN'S WHITE HOUSE STAFF, 1987
-- Howard Baker replaced Donald Regan as Reagan's Chief of Staff. Baker was subsequently replaced by Ken Duberstein. In total, Reagan employed FOUR Chiefs of Staff!
WE ALL NEED TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND REMEMBER: Libertarian and 'purist' conservative voters put the President in the position he finds himself in today -- attacked on all sides by political opportunists and media sycophants . . . He's TRYING to make the most of a bad situation AND win a war in the process!!!!
[BTW: The adolescent sniping/pettiness at FR is REALLY getting old, particularly when it comes from CURRENT members of the DOSE family -- on other threads of course.]
Aw, that's so NICE to hear. I'm so happy you traveled to see him and yes, he can be both sweet and a hottie. In fact, it's the sweet ones who are the best hotties!!!
Impossible to be a hottie if they're mean, childish, snarky and vindictive.
All we have around here is Wal-Mart.
Wal-Mart doesn't carry the polo shirts that I like, so I order those from the Penney's catalog.
The nearest town with something like Dillard's or Penney's, is about 360 miles away.
I'm so happy you like the photo of Tony. I love it and was so happy to find it and post it.
I think he earned the quote of the day too!
I think Old Navy is sold online...
Darn...I have never seen a Delks...and I haven't shopped at Dillards and Penneys in a long time..and never for jeans.
I think Old Navy sells their clothes online..maybe you could order some.
I'll look online. Thanks! I'll bet it's too late to order anything for this trip, but I'll check!
The last time I got dressed up was for my daughter's wedding..and now, both of my children are married...so, until my 7 year old granddaughter graduates from high school...I can't imagine needing to dress up...LOL
It's really gotten horrid here and I see no signs of civility returning any time soon. I'm quite turned off by it all.
Thank you so much! Great reads tonight.
Oh yeah, we have a Super Walmart, but I don't buy clothes from Walmart, so I didn't list it.
How does one tell the leftist trolls from the pseudo-cons?
They spew the same hatred and post the same venomous lies about the President.
And hardly anyone is out there to get in their way......
THANK you for posting the truth, Deb.
Well that should teach me to click on threads other than my usual few~!
Jeez...I must me tired..I am repeating myself in the same post...ugh
