A Month in the Life of George W Bush (news and photos): May 2009
www.georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/releases/ ^ | 1st May 2009 | Snugs

Posted on 05/01/2009 8:57:31 PM PDT by snugs

All of April and the start of May 2009 find us still being bombarded by the media hyping up the first 100 days of President Obama with no sign of it dying down. Following the introduction to the monthly thread I will post some photos to remind us of the first few days of the first May of the George W Bush Presidency - those were the days.

The quote I have chosen for this month are remarks made during Commander-In-Chief Trophy Event at the South Portico on May 4, 2001.

Tomorrow I will post some more photos from May 2001 I am sure we will see the contrast what we see and hear from the first few months of the Bush Presidency to the Obama Presidency will make us realise even more so how much more respect and love GWB had for the office and the country and more importantly the individual citizens rather than just special interest groups as the current President does not even bother to try to hide.

Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island

“Bush may not have been perfect,

Whom do you know or have ever known in
your life to be perfect ???

It’s a patently ludicrous statement.

I’m so tired of seeing that idiotic
qualifier, and particularly when applied
to Pres. Bush. As if ...........”

Hi, there! I was hoping you’d respond! Good to “see” you again!

Take care and keep up the good work of promoting OUR president!

Of course, we are both W fans, I think! *grin*

Good to see you too!

I intend to keep fighting for OUR President as long as the Lord gives me breath. Honor is worth fighting for. Integrity is worth fighting for. Courage is worth fighting for.

OUR President has all those qualities, and I don't want anyone to forget it!

(Glad to see you still feel the same way. :)

My opinion of OUR president won’t change. We have gone from a government of integrity, honesty, patriotism and America-first to one of lying, scheaming, greedy, un-American, anti-troops anti-business low-lifes!

I pray we survive to change it back to something we recognize.

LUV W, I fear that this country will not change back into anything we recognize until long after I'm gone.

I'm just praying that it will before my children and future grandchildren are gone.

I've never felt this way before - never in my entire life. We have gone from having a President who loves and protects America as very few have ever done, to one who hates it and wants to destroy it.

I fear we will not recover.

Pray and pray hard!

That’s the only thing we can do at this point.

That and support men and women who can take the country
back from the “enemy within”.

CEMENTING THE BUSH LEGACY
Jennifer Rubin - 05.16.2009 - 5:24 PM
George W. Bush must be smiling. He’s not talking in public about the Obama administration, but he can’t be displeased: his harshest critic is adopting most of his national security policies, albeit grudgingly and with a whole lot of spin. But not even the White House spinners can conceal what has happened.

MORE and more people are waking up to the incredible GOOD that President Bush (and his team) did over the course of his presidency:

BIPAI HONORS PRESIDENT BUSH, LAURA BUSH WITH LEADERSHIP AWARD

HOUSTON — (May 21, 2009) — President George W. Bush and Laura Bush received the 2009 Leadership Award from the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative Wednesday night.

CNN, OF ALL POLLSTERS, HAS RECORDED AN INCREASE IN PRESIDENT BUSH’S FAVORABILITY/JA RATING
5/14-17/09 41 favorable 57 unfavorable 2 unsure
2/18-19/09 33 favorable 63 unfavorable 4 unsure

NOTE: If CNN indicates that President Bush possesses a 41% favorability rating than we can all assume he possesses a rating well above 50%! [And yes, this is the same poll that noted an increase in VP Cheney’s rating from 29% to 37%!]

The longer we have to put up with the moronic, immature antics
in the current administration, the more favorable GW’s approval
rating will get. This bunch is just SCARY!

Thanks for the great links, Deb. Good to see you!

Hi life has been a bit crazy and to cap it all my fridge freezer went down over the weekend, dad wants to get it repaired but everyone including the only company that has come back to me so far are telling me it is too old and I really I need to replace.

I have found one I want now I am trying to persuade dad this is the correct route to go.
