A day in the life of President Bush (photos): 8/27/02
yahoo.com, whitehouse.gov

Posted on 08/27/2002 6:21:42 PM PDT by rintense

President Bush met with Saudi Arabian Ambassador Prince Bandar bin Sultan at the Bush Ranch in Crawford, Texas today to discuss the Mideast, including Iraq. Bin Sultan still asserted the official Saudi opposition to any action against Iraq. Bush also pushed the Ambassador to do more for children- American citizens- who are being held in Saudi Arabia because their father's are living there. Bush specifically raised the case of Amjad Radwam, a 19-year-old U.S. citizen who was not allowed to leave Saudi Arabia with her mother, Monica Stowers, in 1985. Enjoy your daily dose of Dubya!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: (from yesterday) America in the year 2002 must ask careful questions, not merely about our past, but also about our future. The elected leaders of this country have a responsibility to consider all of the available options. And we are doing so. What we must not do in the face of a mortal threat is give in to wishful thinking or willful blindness. We will not simply look away, hope for the best, and leave the matter for some future administration to resolve. As President Bush has said, time is not on our side. Deliverable weapons of mass destruction in the hands of a terror network, or a murderous dictator, or the two working together, constitutes as grave a threat as can be imagined. The risks of inaction are far greater than the risk of action. ~ Vice President Dick Cheney

PING!

I chose that quote from Dick Cheney because I think it directly implicates the previous administration's willful disregard for the safety of Americans. Cheney's entire speech is brilliant.

Even one picture is like an oasis to those of us wandering in the desert with no pictures at all for days.

I am so glad that the President is getting to spend some time on his beloved ranch ..... away from the putrid swamps of DC ...... but, oh! I do miss having my Daily Dose!

Thanks for this, RWP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rintense, what are you doing with all your new found free time while the President hides from cameras in Crawford?

Can you believe Prince Bandar is sitting on the arm of Laura's lovely new chair and possibly straining its construction?

Evening rintense, How are you? I don't have a joke about Democrats but I want to share something that was in my MS hometown newspaper. It was a cartoon showing 2 people coming out of a courthouse. The lawyer was saying to his black companion: "Why are you so upset. We were awarded a million dollars in reparations". The black man said, "I know but it was in Confederate money". I thought it was kind of funny!!!! How appropriate!!

For those who are troubled about the relationship with the Saudis, I am going to post a link to an excellent essay that explains things quite coherently. Please take the time to read it. It is not full of four-dollar words, but explains in a logical way what is going on. I would have posted it except that it has a couple of F-words in it (WARNING) and I felt it would be against posting rules.

Mr. Mulliner on the "America the Right Way" thread (General Interest forum) found it, and it is quite helpful.

Please do read it if you have time:

Home > News & Policies " President George W. Bush meets with Saudi Arabian Ambassador Prince Bandar bin Sultan at the Bush Ranch in Crawford, Texas, Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2002, White House photo by Eric Draper"

While it is only one photo, Rintense, it's an interesting study in body language. The Prince sits higher than the President, by sitting on the arm of the chair, however, it's obvious who is making the conversational point. I don't think I've ever seen a Saudi prince in jeans before.....

GREAT PICTURE!

I was thinking the same thing about the body language. While the higher position suggests a need to control the conversation, it's obvious from the body language and gestures from Bush that he is in control.

LOL, you deserve this break. Since this is a slow picture night, here's something that's been making the email rounds that's funny. My apologies to anybody who's already seen it. I also apologize for the screaming all caps, any line breaks, etc. My html skills could use some improvement.

At last, a clear explanation of how the Democrats view the tax system.

This baseball analogy works for me. Hope it helps you to understand this heretofore mysterious process.

TAX REFUND

IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND THE DEMOCRAT'S VERSION OF TAX CUTS (AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE), THIS WILL EXPLAIN IT FOR YOU:

FIFTY THOUSAND PEOPLE WENT TO A BASEBALL GAME, BUT THE GAME WAS RAINED OUT. A REFUND WAS THEN DUE.

THE TEAM WAS ABOUT TO MAIL REFUNDS WHEN THE CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS STOPPED THEM AND SUGGESTED THAT THEY SEND OUT REFUND AMOUNTS BASED ON THE DEMOCRAT NATIONAL COMMITTEE'S INTERPRETATION OF FAIRNESS. AFTER ALL, IF THE REFUNDS WERE MADE BASED ON THE PRICE EACH PERSON PAID FOR THE TICKETS, MOST OF THE MONEY WOULD GO TO THE WEALTHIEST TICKET HOLDERS.

THAT WOULD BE UNCONSCIONABLE.

THE DNC PLAN SAYS: PEOPLE IN THE $10 SEATS WILL GET BACK $15, BECAUSE THEY HAVE LESS MONEY TO SPEND. CALL IT AN "EARNED INCOME TICKET CREDIT". PERSONS "EARN" IT BY DEMONSTRATING LITTLE AMBITION, FEW SKILLS AND POOR WORK HABITS, THUS KEEPING THEM AT ENTRY-LEVEL WAGES.

PEOPLE IN THE $15 SEATS WILL GET BACK $15, BECAUSE THAT'S ONLY FAIR.

PEOPLE IN THE $25 SEATS WILL GET BACK $1, BECAUSE THEY ALREADY MAKE A LOT OF MONEY AND DON'T NEED A REFUND. IF THEY CAN AFFORD A $25 TICKET, THEN THEY MUST NOT PAYING ENOUGH TAXES.

PEOPLE IN THE $50 LUXURY SEATS WILL HAVE TO PAY ANOTHER $50, BECAUSE THEY HAVE WAY TOO MUCH TO SPEND.

THE PEOPLE DRIVING BY THE STADIUM WHO COULDN'T AFFORD TO WATCH THE GAME WILL GET $10 EACH, EVEN THOUGH THEY DIDN'T PAY ANYTHING IN, BECAUSE THEY NEED THE MOST HELP.

NOW DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

IF NOT CONTACT REPRESENTATIVE RICHARD GEPHART OR SENATOR TOM DASCHLE FOR ASSISTANCE.

McLynnan's taking it down to the Gulf of Mexico, from there she'll paddle it through the Suez Canal; then over to Alaska; north to Australia; through the Soo Canal to Lake Erie. She's very talented you know.
