May God in His infinite wisdom have mercy on the souls of those who would trample us, for we have none. For them, we have only contempt and cold steel.

How can you caption such a loving and caring face except to say Bush is wonderful.

"I'm so very sorry for the loss of your loved ones and the attack on our country. I promise as your President to see your loved ones did not die in vain."

That's what it looks like to me. God Bless President Bush. He's a truly great man and will go down in history as one of our strongest and greatest leaders of the free world.

Looks like a Dad ought to look. We will never have a president as good as this again. Never.

While these pictures were being taken at ground zero one year to the day after 3,000 Americans were murdered, Jonathan Alter was on PMSNBC talking about President Bush's "IQ" and comparing it to something he called an "EQ" (??).

Alter is a pathetic little neo-liberal scumbag. I wish I could post the Clinton video from Ron Brown's funeral when he switches from laughing to fake tears when he sees a camera.

Reminds me of the famous Freeper poster/ad which shows George Washington with the tear. What would George Washington do now, Mr. Dashole, Mr. Gebhardt, Mr. Ritter, hmmmmmmmm?

Are you talking about the painting of Washington praying at Mount Vernon in the snow? If not, I'd like to see the poster/picture to which you are referring.

We are all very lucky to have a man in office whose ego is under control. Bush is a real man, and a great role model for youth. May God bless him, may God guide and direct his actions, may God protect and defend those under his leadership.

Amen

Behold! Tears of the oppressed with none to comfort them, and their oppressors have the power--with none to comfort them."

If you're intersted in seeing this graphic, go to the profile page of a freeper named coteblanche. Ther's a portriat that has tears coming from George Washington's eyes. It's really touching.

Cote's in Canada, so don't think you're on the wrong place.

I have the picture of George Washington right here on my desk. It appeared in a full page ad in the Washington Times during the impeachment crisis. It's something I treasure because it really summed up the question...How Would HE Vote

Is it my imagination?

Or does George W look quite presidential?
Just like GBush Sr.

Bill Klintoon could never have looked presidential.
Even w/ makeup and plastic surgery!

His eyes say it all. No need to caption.

President Bush is a man of integrity, sencerity, class and dignity.

thanks for wonderful photos.

I watched an hour of his trip to Ground Zero on tv yesterday...he was there for two hours, hugging, encouraging, and caring about those who lost loved ones. I marveled at the emotional energy he displayed...how many of us could have given so much to so many?

He did look tired at his speech last night. No wonder.

Actually, another "caption" comes to mind... borrowed from the last scene in "The Right Stuff":

"Is that a Man? You're DAMN RIGHT it's a MAN!"

It just struck me while I was watching him in Pennsylvania and in New York that the families felt so at ease with him; they would just reach over and touch him, rub his arm, hug him, even kiss him. It was SO personal. I wanted so badly to HEAR what they were saying, but it just seemed so private that I could understand why there were no microphones.

Almost to a person, they were "close" with him.

No need to hear what they were saying. Actions are more than a million times more powerfull than words, beacuse there's no sincerity questions.

It's so nice to NOT be ashamed of our President.

Double-ditto on that. And not to have to wince and recoil reflexively, on the mere sight of him.

We know that certain enemies of ours would conclude that Dubya's outpouring of emotions for these families indicates an inherent emotional weakness.

To the strongest contrary possible, I believe it demonstrates his humanity. It also tells me of his very clear understanding of his place in our society: honored to be President of the greatest nation on earth but humble enough to "mourn with those that mourn." I have yet to see any evidence of his adoption of a "god-complex" or any narcissistic tendencies.

I pray with my 8 and 6 year old every night and before every meal for God to protect this precious human upon whom we have foisted the mantle of leadership. Thank God for answered prayers !!!

A real person as opposed to a phony like Clintoon who would dye his hair to match the group he was speaking to, or Hildabeast who had her hair up to look like Rosie the Riveter at the union hall the other day. We are sooooo lucky to have a real President and First Lady now.

"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience........And over all these virtues put on love which binds them all together in perfect unity."

George W. Bush reflects the love of the Lord in his face as he serves his country and his God in obedience and love. It is crystal clear in these beautiful pictures.

Thanks, mamaduck!

This is what real tears look like.

This is what feeling one's pain looks like.

This is what honesty looks like.

The contrast between the previous leader of the free world and the current one becomes more and more striking each day. Let's all remember this at the ballot box.
