A day in the life of President Bush (photos); 6/6/02
yahoo.com, whitehouse.gov

Posted on 06/06/2002 6:00:49 PM PDT by rintense

In what can be called a massive restructuring and combining of government agencies, President Bush addressed the country this evening and outlined his proposal for elevating the Department of Homeland Security to a cabinet position. In this new cabinet position, the following agencies will be consolidated into one mission, homeland security: the Coast Guard, the Border Patrol, the Customs Service, Immigration officials, the Transportation Security Administration, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In addition to sharing information among all of these different agencies, the Department of Homeland Defense will be charged with four tasks:

1. To control our borders and prevent terrorists and explosives from entering our country.

2. To work with state and local authorities to respond quickly and effectively to emergencies.

3. To bring together our best scientists to develop technologies that detect biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons, and to discover the drugs and treatments to best protect our citizens.

4. To review intelligence and law enforcement information from all agencies of government, and produce a single daily picture of threats against our homeland. Analysts will be responsible for imagining the worst, and planning to counter it.

The President urged Americans to call their representatives and encourage them to support the plan. Enjoy your daily dose of Dubya!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: History has called our nation into action. History has placed a great challenge before us: Will America -- with our unique position and power -- blink in the face of terror, or will we lead to a freer, more civilized world? There's only one answer: This great country will lead the world to safety, security, peace and freedom.

Howdy, Nope, I just got on the computer. Our daughter is down here and she was doing some research and I took it away from her to read the comments about President Bush's speech. How is that for timing? I don't know if you know but she broke her foot very early Sunday morning and is going to have to have a pin put in Tuesday. Sounds like a lot of fun!!!! She has taken over our little bitty tv in the den since our big screen one is still in the shop where it has been for over a month. I miss it!!! You have to be right in front of this tiny thing we brought up from downstairs. We are hoping to get the big one back tomorrow since they are testing it now!!! MamaB

Hopeful bump for more than that.

Great, and it seems our President threw the Senate an unexpected call to duty, action...this should be fun to watch.

Leave it to George to get people to focus on getting results.

How's life been for you CS?

We're deep into boxing up stuff for the move to our house. We should sign "zah pay-pirs" either tomorrow or Monday...this is SO exciting.

George is taking on Homeland Security, and we're securing a new homeland. ;-)

Is the rug out being cleaned? Look at the rug in the photo with Ridge.

I loved the setting of the speech in the cross hall, it made his voice so authoritive! Perfect for the announcement.

Wonderful pictures again, Rintense. The carpet in the Oval Office is plain in Pic #5 (I THINK I remembered that number rightly) - what's with that, I wonder? I thought the pattern of the new carpet extended nearly to the edge.

Re: Rug being cleaned...they couldn't sanitize the old one from x42 enough, so George said, "I need a new one...I'll keep it clean!"

Thanks. She has had more than her share of health problems lately. She went to a doctor one day this week and he told her it is the worst foot break a person can have and she would be in a cast for about 8 weeks or have the pin put in and be on her feet a lot sooner. Which would you choose in this Alabama weather? It is already in the high 80's and mid 90's and casts are no fun!!! MamaB

LOL, no he already got his new one. Remember, X42's rug was blue and President Bush's rug was shades of brown with touches of that strange soft blue. Very beautiful. It must be out being cleaned.

What is the deal here? They must be cleaning the Oval Office carpet?

President was great tonight. Short and sweet. I would have preferred a longer speech with more details but no matter.

Yes, our President's voice WAS full of authority and his presentation was PERFECT. Whadda man!

Tomorrow, Limbaugh will be whining about it being a dangerous move. And already Hitlery is chiming in about our lack of protection from terrorists, as though she thought of it all by her little, lying self.

Well, actually ok, they redid the flooring in the Oval Office quite some time ago, and the pattern of the individual boards radiates out so that, in some pictures, it looks like an extension of the new rug. Confusing, huh?

Doing pretty good today, CS. My PT gave me the go ahead to begin exercising (with some caution) and it feels SOOO good! I have more energy it seems. On the flip side, it's been hotter than h.e.double toothpicks here and I'm already tired of it. Summer and I do *not* get along. :o/

Don't you love having a Harvard MBA in the Oval Office? Organization, fresh ideas, leadership, and a downright uncanny ability to outsmart the foe! I love this guy!

btw, meatball count at 427, garage paint touched up, shrubs trimmed, scrapbooks and picture collages ready to go! On track for Saturday's Graduation Gala! :o)

That's ok. I just had good timing!!!! She is watching tv for a little while and she will probably run me off soon. Then what will I do? To watch this little tv, I have been sitting on the floor right in front of it and I still have problems reading stuff on it. I think it is smaller than my monitor!!! Oh well. We will have the big one back soon. I HOPE!!!! MamaB

I don't think you can see the rug from this angle, it's more in the center of the room.

I bet with fewer details, George can make the Senators FEEL like they have a say in all of this...all while knowing that George orchestrated it! They will "own" it more, if they feel they created it. BRILLIANT. I love you George!

You should move to Ohio.
It's about 50 degrees right now, and I was cold when I went out with a jacket on! :o\

Glad to hear you're doing well, homeschool. You've been through the ringer, haven't you?
