Posted on 03/30/2007 5:05:32 PM PDT by silent_jonny

President Bush visited soldiers and Marines at the physical therapy wing of Walter Reed Army Center in Washington today. Afterwards, the president spoke at Walter Reed’s Red Cross Hall, praising the doctors and nurses for their extraordinary care of the troops and promising that the problems found in the center--and the bureaucracy--will soon be fixed. (Transcript)

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with Guinea-Bissau Foreign Minister Antonio Isaac Monteiro and Brazil's Foreign Minister Celso Amorim at the State Department in Washington.

I know how recent some of those scenes were, and I thought, "Loveless marriage"...........yeah RIGHT!

Question......... Can it be viewed on a full screen? Enlarged?

They never look at the President's face. Knowing who he really is would destroy their entire hate-filled template, and they can't ever, ever do that.

Leftists are the most disgustingly dishonest people on the face of the earth.

What pisses me off is that Bush has been visiting WRAMC for years. I met him there myself in early 2004 when I was visiting a friend and he and Laura popped in. There were no cameras and no press. He was visibly shaken by the wounded as was Laura. It was an extremely human moment.

Now he has screwed the pooch of public opinion to the extent that he has to do the Clintonesque 'photo-op'.

btw...a genuine thanks for posting the pics.

Even worse, they DO see it, they just assume he's faking it, because that's what THEY do.

He's not doing anything differently than he's done for the last 6 1/2 years. Media hammering on him has changed the opinions of some who allow their opinions to be shaped by the MSM. We, who recognize the yammerings of the press for what they are, hatred of Republicans in general and conservatives in particular, just let it roll right past and don't incorporate into our worldview.

Since we don't follow the media line, and we've seen him do these visits since the beginning of the war, we don't ascribe any ulterior motives to them now. They are just part and parcel of who this man is, and how he respects the men and women in uniform.

What in heaven's name are you talking about?

We have seen hundreds of photos exactly like these from Walter Reed over the past years.

This is no photo op. The media lies. Don't you know that?

That's what this thread is for, Suzi. We've seen the TRUTH in spite of the media lies.

And we've seen these touching scenes many, many times over the years.

This Commander in Chief loves his troops. Period.

Anyone who thinks this was a photo op has swallowed media lies.

Thank you, THANK YOU!!

Some of those clips are just amazing.

I had never seen a close up of his tears when he dedicated the walkway to his beloved Laura, or their hands at the Ford funeral. I remember her caressing his arm in the interview, and I have seen all the tender touching and loving looks over the years..............but seeing it altogether with the music is just awesome!

Thank you for all the work it had to take to put that together.

Wow!

Has everyone on the Dose seen that?? They should!

My daughter and son-in-law went to see it on their anniversary. They both said it was a great movie. She did say it was pretty gory in most of the movie, but she did say they loved it otherwise! She just said she wanted to warn me that it was pretty graphic!

Now further news on dad tonight. Still not allowing him food they are doing the flatulence tubing overnight which helps a bit and they will do further test on Monday this time with camera and hopefully this will assist them in knowing how to treat the bowel problem so that they can get him fit for surgery on the broken limbs.

I am round my friend's this evening so will not be up on line but will check in tomorrow morning from home.

Miss you see you tomorrow

Hi Notes,
Thanks for the link, but I already had shockwave. I had no problem watching the video on line, but after I downloaded it I couldn't get it to run. What I did was
convert it from an avi movie to an mpeg using a program I found at this site http://www.imtoo.com/avi-mpeg-converter.html. It now works on my desktop. I may be the only one with this problem, but this worked for me. So far this program hasn't caused a problem. I did set a restore point prior to downloading just in case. Thanks again for the beautiful video.

Oh my! The screen got kinda fuzzy there, near the end of that video. ;o) What a fantastic job!!

You know, what's so great about George and Laura, is that their affection is not an affectation. They're not doing it for the cameras or public opinion. They genuinely love each other, and it shows by the little ways they touch each other, when they're just standing closely. When they're talking to each other, or even to others, if they are next to each other, one or the other of them will rub the other's back or arm in a gesture of caring.

I just love watching them together, and I know they are going to be SO glad to get out of DC and back to their ranch house!

Exactly right, Suzi. I have the feeling if you told them not to touch each other, they wouldn't be able to stop........it's just that much a part of who they are together.

As horrible as it's going to be for me to have him leave the Oval Office, I find myself at a personal level wanting them to have the pressure off and just live in their love for each other.

There is a committee in Congress that included Diane Feinstein, from the great state of California, That committee has to do with the housing and taking care of the Veterans.
According to what I heard on the radio,. Feinstein and her husband made billions by giving contracts to their 'friends'. Fienstein was on the committee to oversee good work.
what happened?????????S
San Francisco has done it again! Firet 'Stretch' Palosi now Di-Fi.

I am so moved by the straightforward, realistic way that American soldiers accept their amputations, etc. No maudlin reactions. No self-pity. While others get tweeked and tucked by the pimps of the medical world—cosmetic surgeons—American soldiers learn how to deal with prosthetics. The Democrats and liberals respond by trying to withdraw the soldiers’ funds for winning the war on terror. Yet, the American soldiers continue to accept their fate and deal with it. I believe there is a God, and one day every dog will get his/her due. In the meantime, it’s hard to deal with the reality that evil is obviously in control now: I pray not for too much longer.
