A Month in the life of George W. Bush (News and many Photos) September 2005
georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news ^ | September 5, 2010

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 Bush’s Remarks which he gave at the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance Service on September 16, 2005

TAX FIGHT PITS BUSH VS. OBAMA
The looming Senate debate on taxes sets up a showdown between George W. Bush and President Obama on tax policy — and the former president could come out the winner.

If this fake president lets those tax breaks end, then this has to be known as OBAMA’S TAX HIKE!

I love the fact the audience laughed in the face of the idiot protesters. That's absolutely the best way to handle them.

The above is from one of the two eyewitness accounts you linked, Star. So true, but nevertheless it amazes me just how many people -- including way too many on the Right -- simply do not recognize greatness of character when they see it. From several perspectives, George W. Bush is, without any doubt, a truly great man.

The fact that some people mistake his straightforward, plain-spoken west Texas ways for lack of intelligence says more about them than about our 43rd President.

I think the huge success of his book and appearances speaks to the fact that some people do get it, thank heavens.

So sweet indeed, ohioWfan!!

Love your post, Wolfstar.

President Bush wrote an op ed in the Washington Post today:
America's global fight against AIDS

"During a presidency often forced to focus on issues of national security, the fight against global disease was sometimes viewed as an anomaly or exception. It wasn't and isn't. America has a direct stake in the progress and hope of other nations....

...I am happily out of the political business. But I can offer some friendly advice to members of Congress, new and old. A thousand pressing issues come with each day. But there are only a few that you will want to talk about in retirement with your children. The continuing fight against global AIDS is something for which America will be remembered. And you will never regret the part you take."

Any of you who didn't (like me!) see the Saddleback Forum live MUST watch it.

President Bush is amazing!!!!!! Charming, intelligent, funny, serious, smart, well-spoken--all the things we love about him. One thing nice about this interview is that time is not an issue--he is very relaxed and has time to tell stories. It is wonderful!!

Thanks so much, LuvyaDubya, for posting this once it became available.

ohioWfan and DrDeb--it is funny to see how quick that moment was that was captured in that picture we liked (him telling people to sit down). Glad some photographer was quick with the shutter!

AN UNLIKELY PAIR: PERTUSET, BUSH CONTINUE FRIENDSHIP

key quote:

“‘We need to stop that president stuff’ were his exact words,” Pertuset said. “He said, ‘we’re friends. I want you to make sure you understand you’re my friend, and I hope I’m your friend. This ‘president’ stuff needs to stop.’”

If nothing else, the friendship between Pertuset and Bush demonstrates that — behind all the glamor — people are just people.

Even if one of those people also happened to be the leader of the free world.”

Very nice blog from Focus On The Family where President Bush did an interview with the host today. I believe it's going to air on the Focus On The Family radio show next week Dec 14. and Dec 15. on Christian talk radio stations across the country so please check your local listings. But I'm sure it's going to be posted on the FOTF website afterwards.

Bush Focus On The Family interview

The Interview with the President Went Swimmingly

Posted by Jim_Daly on Dec 6, 2010 2:43:27 PM

Today was one of the more exciting days in Daly family history -- the reason why all depends on who you ask

My boys, Trent and Troy, quizzed early this morning about what they thought the highlight of their day was going to be, took nanoseconds to respond, "We're going swimming!" It was a particularly joyous occasion for Trent, the fish of the family, since he hasn't been able to hit the pool for a couple of months after breaking his wrist this summer.

So it seemed a perfectly natural answer for a 10 and 8-year-old -- even though they were only a few minutes away from meeting the 43rd President of the United States.

I brought the boys and Jean along with me to Dallas today to meet President George W. Bush at his office here, where we recorded a Focus on the Family broadcast scheduled to air next week, Tuesday and Wednesday, December 14th and 15th. I've met Mr. Bush a couple of times before, and was thrilled to have the opportunity for the boys to meet him, too.

Almost as thrilled as they were to splash around in the hotel pool.

The President was friendly and gracious with them, giving them presidential bookmarks as gifts and wishing them a Merry Christmas. (He also had a little fun with me, remarking as I was telling him about a spill I took mountain biking with a mutual friend, "You're a little big for a mountain bike, aren't you?") The boys and I had talked in advance about some questions they might want to ask him, and with a little help from Dad they did find out whether the President carries money.

The answer? No.

Mr. Bush said aides handle any point-of-sale purchases that need to be made, so there's no need to keep cash on hand, but added that the funds used for buying everything from food for the First Family to putting up relatives at Camp David comes from a president's personal finances.

That was just one of the interesting things discovered in the 90 or so minutes the Dalys and some members of the Focus team spent with the president this morning.

They say you can tell a lot about what a man values by the way his office is decorated -- and in that case it's clear President Bush is a person of great faith and love for his family. The wall closest to his desk is home to three large photographs: one of him with his daughter Jenna on her wedding day; one of him with his wife, Laura; and one with his other daughter, Barbara.

On the credenza behind his desk are a few family photos as well: one of his father's inauguration as president (there are no photos, tellingly, of Mr. Bush's own two inaugurations); a shot of his grandfather, Prescott Bush, a U.S. senator; and an old family snapshot taken outside an airplane -- the days when air travel was an *event*! -- featuring his parents and grandparents and him as a toddler.

President Bush's desk is neat and mostly unadorned -- there's a clock, a small bust of an eagle and a small bust of a steer. There were two books stacked there, as well: "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God But Were Afraid to Ask" by Eric Metaxas and "All Things Are Possible Through Prayer" by Charles L. Allen. On the credenza is another pair of leather-bound editions: "Decision Points" and the New American Standard Bible.

I was fascinated by "Decision Points" and the straightforward way President Bush discussed the key highs and lows of his eight years in office -- from the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks to the financial crisis of 2008. What struck me most, though, just as his office reflects, was how his faith in Christ and his love of family helped him weather the rough times and deepened the joy of the good times.

I don't want to spoil some of the insights you'll hear on the broadcast next week, but there is one thing he said to me off-mic, before the recorders started rolling, that I think succinctly sums up who he is. As we were about to begin, I told him I wasn't going to ask a lot of questions about politics, but rather explore his personal journey as a believer in Christ, a husband and father and son, who served the American people during a particularly meaningful moment in history.

"That's about right," he said as he nestled into his chair. "It is Focus on the Family, not Focus on the Party."

Those are the words of a man who seems to have his priorities straight, a man my boys will be proud to have met.

Just as soon as they get out of the pool.

the perseverence of our great President and the
unparallelled courage of our awesome troops.

God bless and protect them both dearly. We’ll
always honor them to the highest degree possible.

I bet he WILL call her when he goes back to be
his translator.

I gave some thought to posting a separate thread for the following brief excerpt from 'Decision Points' (Page 203), but no longer have any confidence that the larger FReeper body would appreciate it. So I'll post it here for those of us who have been loyal to this great man.

Introducing the George W. Bush you never knew:

"Early in the war, I decided to write letters to the family members of Americans lost on the battlefield. I wanted to honor their sacrifice, express my sorrow, and extend the gratitude of the country...My [first] letter was addressed to Shannon Spann, the wife of Mike Spann, the CIA officer killed in the prison uprising at Mazar-i-Sharif and the first battlefield death of the war...I sent letters to the families of every service member who laid down his or her life in the war on terror. By the end of my presidency, I had written to almost five thousand families." President George W. Bush

Those two video clips are just AWESOME, Deb! THANKS! (Finally got a few minutes to watch them. LOL!)

All over the country people are seeing the great, kind, funny, sweet person the media tried to hide for eight years, and they LOVE him.

Great stuff!

That's just an amazing statistic, Wolfstar.

What an incredible sacrifice to write to 5,000 families.

What an outstanding, caring Commander in Chief he was.
