Skip to comments.A Month in the life of George W. Bush (News and many Photos) September 2005
Posted on 09/05/2010 5:29:14 PM PDT by Kaslin
The month of September 2005 was a very busy month for President Bush after Katrina came on land at the Gulf coast and damaged the area. We see President Bush and First Lady Laura visiting New Orleans and other affected areas in Louisiana and Mississippi to comfort the victims of the hurricane and bring aid
The country lost Chief Justice William Renquist who passed away on September 3, 2005
President Bush nominated Judge Roberts to become the next Chief Supreme Court Justice. On September 29th Justice Roberts was sworn in as the 20th? Supreme Court Chief Justice.
President Bush remembered 9/11 heroes at a Medal of Valor ceremony. He also met with several foreign leaders and addressed the Useless Nations
For the quote of the month I have chosen President Bushs Remarks which he gave at the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance Service on September 16, 2005
Thanks for posting the pictures and the link to the video. I watched the game on the Nashville Fox station. I could not see where the ball hit because they moved the camera away so quick, but Fox and Friends replayed it this morning. I was glad President Bush was there I knew he would bring them luck
I missed it. Hubby set to autotune but it must have been thrown before 5pm.
He looks rested and well! Thanks again!
absolutely wonderful pix Patty.. thanks so much for sharing and for the ping
Thanks so much!
Awesome pictures...and for me, it was THE highlight of a very good Ranger win. LOL!
Thanks for being on top of things and sharing your pictures with us!
Thank you SO much for posting them for us.
The pitch was great (he sure hasn't lost his arm!), the catch not so very much. ;*) Poor Nolan! W probably won't ever let him live it down!
Thanks again for your yeoman's work to keep us up to speed on what OUR President is doing!
Hi, onyx, my long lost FRiend! :)
I see our President is right in with fashion vogue...ha! ‘Orange’ shirt.. and it is the color of the year.
Nice shots Patty...always appreciate them.
Thanks for posting the video! (((HUGS)))
Thank you for the wonderful new pictures of President Bush throwing the ball in the World Series. I loved the video, too. Thanks so much for all your hard work, Patty!!!!
Great, Great pictures. Thanks for posting the pix and the links. I just loved the ovations our W rec’d from the crowd.
Thanks SO much, patty, for the great pics and video
The comments are just about as heartwarming. Sniff ...
Thanks for the ping and the link. President Bush must be so proud of his Rangers. Just one more win and they will bring the trophy home
Wonderful photos, Patty. Did my heart good to wake up and see them this morning. Also, the roar of that crowd really will make this day for me. At least there’s some people in this world who know a quality human being when they see one. :)
Thanks everyone for all your nice comments. Having President Bush throw out the first pitch on Sunday was exactly what the Texas Rangers needed to give themselves a confidence booster and it has worked thus far!
Seeing him walk out to the mound to deafening cheers sent shivers down my spine...just priceless. There are few people like him who can whip up such an enthusiastic and heartwarming response. And I believe that’s why so many people miss having a President who is humble, patriotic and loves this country over petty politics.
he looks positively WONDERFUL — fit, rested and enjoying his well-earned retirement.

How I miss that man! The troops are at risk and our very country is not as safe without him at the helm.
He does love him some baseball and you can tell he is having the best time there!
People are sure learning you have no idea of what you have until it’gone!! Wish he could run another time!

Heres an excerpt where Timothy talks about resigning from a plagiarism scandal and how the President forgave him and showed concern for him and his family. Its pretty touching!
So surely this, I thought, would be the woodshed moment, and again I completely deserved it. I expected other people to be there, but when I got to the Oval Office the only other person there was the executive assistant. I thought I must have come on the wrong daybut the President called me in. I thought: This is going to be really bad. I went in and closed the door.
I turned to him to apologize, but barely got the words out before he looked me in the eyes and said, Tim, I forgive you. To say I was stunned would be an understatement. I tried again to apologize, but he wouldnt let me. He said, Tim, Ive known grace and mercy in my life. Im extending it to you. Youre forgiven.
I said, You should have thrown me into Pennsylvania Avenue. Again he said, My friend, youre forgiven. We can talk about all of this, or we can talk about the last eight years.
As I turned to head out, though, he said, I want you to bring your wife and boys here, so I can tell them what a great job youve done.
I was stunned and speechless. The leader of the free world, the most powerful man on earth, wanted to affirm me before my wife and children. Sure enough, my wife and boys came, the President gave them a great amount of time in the Oval Office and gave them gifts.

Handsome as ever and the Bush girls just get more and more beautiful. So glad I caught this thread. His heart must be breaking over the frightening condition our country is in. How Blessed were we to have him as our President for 8 years—what an honor!
My recollection is that GWB might have been in Maine and found out that that plane was stopping on its way to Iraq and asked to greet the troops. (Someone correct me if you remember otherwise.)
Can you imagine their amazement and delight? You are right, GWB is a truly caring and good-hearted man.
Oh my heart!....now that’s a tear-jerker Patty!
That photo was taken while GWB was still in office. He was greeting troops on their way to Iraq. It is, indeed, a very moving photo.
The way so many on the Right viciously turned on GWB less than a year after his reelection is why I've largely given up on politics.
I'm a political conservative, but no longer consider myself part of the modern conservative movement. I know that might be hard to understand, but basically it means I'm now an independent who has little patience for rabid ideologues and demagogues on either the Left or Right.
That’s the way he rolls! God love ‘em!
Thank you. I feel the same way. I wonder if President Bush has ever wanted to speak out on the declining state the country is in right now. It’s got to be eating him up inside. But he’s got too much class and he’ll never do it even though we’d like for him to rip Obama into shreds!
Lovely, isn’t it? Too bad so many people don’t get to see this side of President Bush with his acts of kindness and warm gestures. The public has been forced-fed this distorted perception from the media and the left that he’s a cold, rotten war criminal, blah, blah, blah...
If people ever got the chance to meet GWB in person and see that he is a genuinely nice person, then their view of him would change completely for sure!
Thanks Kaslin, dmd25, and Wolfstar for your helpful info. This was the first time I ever saw that photo as it was popped up in Twitter and Facebook on Friday. Had a feeling that it was taken while he was still in office so I’m glad you guys remembered it from long ago! :)
You’re so right Wolfstar. I, too can’t stand the purist Right who felt President Bush didn’t live up to their standards and tore him down at every chance they could get. I’m sick of hearing complaints from them like, because of his reckless spending and his incompetence, Bush was responsible for electing Obama into office.
To me these so-called radical “Right” are just as bad as the left-wing Democrats, if not worse! I can’t relate to them nor do I want to be associated with them at all!

Pres. Bush was the keynote speaker at GFLCs general session in the afternoon.
Thank you for the new and wonderful pictures, Patty. What a terrific family we have here! Appreciate you sharing with us.
pattyvita, you are awesome! Thank you for finding and posting these wonderful pictures. Would have loved to be at the Conference. How terrific to see the entire Bush family in one place.
His name is Vittorio Palumbo, now retired from his job as a tailor for the US Military, for many years, and specifically, in the final years, for the U.S. Marines. He is an Italian immigrant who arrived in the US in the mid-50s after having grown up in Mussolini's Italy. The book is "Italian Days, Arabian Nights", and deals with the family being part of plans to populate the area Mussolini considered Italy's Fourth Shore, in Libya. It is a fascinating book!
Thanks for the great pictures! I am a friend on his FB page, but the posts get lost in the other less important stuff. :)
Thank you for the ping and all the new pix, Patty. Sanity Island is alive and well! :) (Oh, how it is needed!)
I think he will treasure those hand-copied Bible pages. Wow.
Laura looks lovely, as always.
Thanks again, patty!
