A Day in the Life of President Bush (news and photos): 01-19-09
www.yahoo.com/news ^ | 19th January 2008 | Snugs

Posted on 01/19/2009 5:31:14 PM PST by snugs

Today is the last full day that George W Bush spent in the White House as President he telephoned current and former world leaders from Oval Office.

Also in his last full day as President he commuted the sentences of two former US border guards facing more than 10 years in prison for shooting a Mexican drug smuggler.

Secretary of Defense Roberts Gates will will sit out Barack Obama's inauguration at an undisclosed location as the "designated successor" in the event of a catastrophe, the White House announced Monday.

Pray for President Bush - Day 3050.

Enjoy Sanity Island on the President's last full day in office

That is gorgeous!! Thank you so much for that,
and for ALL you do. I pray things improve
every day, with Dad at home.

My 91 yr. old Mom was hospitalized with
pneumonia 2 days ago, and released today.
She’s still very weak and congested, so
I’m praying hard for her.

Thank you snugs, and all the others for bringing us the Bush Administration and a comfy place to gather for the past eight years. Thanks to rintense for getting this started and doing a yeoman’s job for many years.

I hope Day in the Life will remain available as an archive on FR for a very long time.

Even though President Bush and Laura will regain their prized private life tomorrow (sniff!), we will need, more than ever, a Sanity Island.

God Bless you, Mr President. We have lived in safety for the last eight years because of you.

If Texas secedes from the Union, you just might be President again?

At the White House: 1st Lt. Lou Allen’s family meets the president and his staff

First Lt. Lou Allen’s family attended a reception at the White House on Thursday, Jan. 15.

Allen’s widow, Barbara, attended with their four sons, Trevor, Colin, Sean, and Jeremy, who had their photo taken with President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. Allen’s parents, Robert and Vivian, and his sister Laurene Sandstrom also attended.

President Bush gave them all gifts.

“The boys were thrilled to meet him,” Sandstrom said. “He gave all of us a hug and kiss when we were introduced. We also got to bring our cameras to take pictures of everything but the President.” Those photos were taken by a professional photographer.

Lou Allen died in Iraq in June 2005. He was a native of Chester and a science teacher in Tuxedo, N.Y.

~~~

God bless them all.

That’s my solace/perspective: W is finally coming home to the Republic of Texas and DC is getting everything they deserve and more.

Happy day, in a roundabout way.....

Thank you for posting the info on President Bush's homecoming.

I watched this "coronation" right up until President Bush came down the steps, then said hello to all and X42 was in the background and Laura and W were in the foreground, then it cut to just our dear President.

After that, I walked away from the TV....never to return again until Jan 20, 2013 for either Sarah or Mitt to take over.

I've fooled myself into thinking they are health food

Well, if you make them using less butter, or use that fruit blend stuff for part of the butter, and you can use a sugar substitute for part of the sweetener, it would be health food! ;o)

I’m DVRing this season of “24”, so far, because I never finished watching Season 6! So I’m getting the DVDs from Netflix to catch up on last season, then I’ll watch, “24: Redemption”, which I also DVRd, before I get started on the new season.

‘O’ is signing a bill on Wednesday, paving the way for US taxpayers to foot the bill for foreign abortions.

I wonder how he imagines that doing so would help us in our foreign relations with Islamic nations? Whatta maroon.

they scare me cause they just quietly slip “stuff” past us when the media focus is on other issues. And, many Americans are still sleepwalking....

Thankfully, the Founding Fathers had the prescience to require that any changes to any of the Amendments in the Constitution required the consent of 2/3ds of the states. The ERA never made it, and that was pushed like heck!

I love that picture of 41 reaching over to President Bush, after he returned to the pew, following his wonderful address that day. It was a gesture of love and pride; something that 41 has always been ready to show publicly. That’s one reason this family is so special.

Did you watch President Bush's return home speech in Midland? It was interesting, because I'd heard Bret Baier on FoxNews talking about Obama's Inauguration speech as having an angry tone.

By contrast, George W. Bush's speech was as optimistic as he always was. I was in tears for much of it, though, just thinking about what we have to endure for at least the next four years.

God Bless you President Bush, Laura, VP and Lynne Cheney, and the whole lot....thank you for making the world a better place.
