Quote of the Day:

President Bush: (speaking to reconstruction teams and combat commanders in Iraq)

… I want to thank you once again for your outstanding service to our nation in the cause of peace. What happens in Iraq matters to the United States of America. A violent, chaotic Iraq will affect our security at home. An Iraq that can self-govern, provide basic services to its people, and be an ally in the war on terror will mean that all of us have accepted a great challenge and laid a foundation of peace for our children and grandchildren.

And so, thank you for your service. I appreciate your -- I want to thank your families who are supporting you in this just and noble cause. And may God bless you all. Thank you.

President Bush participates in a video teleconference with Iraq Provincial Reconstruction Team Leaders, Embedded Provincial Reconstruction Team Leaders, and Brigade Combat Commanders, Friday, July 13, 2007, in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington.

President Bush: As part of our strategy to succeed in Iraq, I not only reenforced our military efforts with more troops, we also surged civilians to work with our military to help the reconciliation efforts in a country that is still recovering from the tyranny of Saddam Hussein.

And today my Security Council here had a opportunity not only to speak with our Ambassador in Iraq, but also five members of provincial reconstruction teams, three civilians and two military -- colonels. They have briefed us on the grassroots effort to improve services, to improve the economy, to encourage local government, all aiming at enhancing this concept of reconciliation from the bottom up.

We heard from the PRT leader in Anbar. I had the honor of speaking with him months ago, and now he has briefed us on the progress that he has seen. Listen, there is still a lot of work to be done. But these people at the grassroots understand that most Iraqis want to live in peace and that, with time, we'll be able to help them realize that dream.

And so I want to thank you once again for your outstanding service to our nation in the cause of peace. What happens in Iraq matters to the United States of America. A violent, chaotic Iraq will affect our security at home. An Iraq that can self-govern, provide basic services to its people, and be an ally in the war on terror will mean that all of us have accepted a great challenge and laid a foundation of peace for our children and grandchildren.

And so, thank you for your service. I appreciate your -- I want to thank your families who are supporting you in this just and noble cause. And may God bless you all. Thank you.

He's not Rummy...however, as President of Texas A & M...the Aggies loved him. Many comments from many Aggies said no one has done more for A & M than him.

Thanks, jonny! Happy Friday the 13th .. !! I was definitely bit .. first thing this morning, rudely awakened by a screeching, deafening speaker in my hallway that the building power was out. Fortunately, it was only out for about 45 mins.

So sad .. I see the President and Vice President are still on the outs ........ NOT!! hehehe ;)

Interesting ...on the poll ratings for Congress and the President:

While the public's approval of Congress has dropped 11 points since May, the percentage of Democrats who are turning up their noses at Congress -- like Lambirth -- nearly doubled. Among Republicans, though, not so much.

Approval among Democrats fell 21 points, from 48 percent in May to 27 percent.

It remained low among Republicans, at 20 percent, and has not changed significantly in the past two months.

*snip*

Among other survey findings:

--Bush's marks on his handling of the economy and domestic issues like health care, education and the environment, held steady, at 37 percent on the economy and 33 percent on domestic matters. Last month, Bush was at 37 percent approval for his stewardship of the economy, and 32 percent on domestic issues.

--On handling of foreign policy, including terrorism, 38 percent approved, compared with 35 percent last month.

--On handling the Iraq war, 31 percent approved, compared with 28 percent last month.

--Just about one-quarter of the people, or 26 percent, said the country is headed in the right direction. Last month, 21 percent said the country was on the right track.

The telephone survey of 1,004 adults was conducted July 9-11 by Ipsos, an international public opinion research company. The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 3 percentage points.

I am, thank you. And the weather is cooler now. We even had big, rolling thunderstorms this morning after some rain last night. It was ugly hot here this week, in the 90’s.

And how are you?
