A day in the life of President Bush (photos): 9/20/02
yahoo.com, whitehouse.gov

Posted on 09/20/2002 6:27:48 PM PDT by rintense

This was so good, I just had to use it (from the White House.gov website, from Ari's press briefing today)

The President began his day this morning with a phone call to Prime Minister Balkenende of the Netherlands. The two spoke for approximately 15 minutes. They discussed the situation in Iraq. The President thanked President Balkenende for the Netherlands' strong support as expressed in a recent speech that was given to the United Nations by Netherlands.

The President also this morning called President Putin, of Russia. The two spoke for approximately 30 minutes. They discussed the situation in Iraq. The President talked about the need to make certain that the United Nations pass resolutions that are firm, that accomplish the goals of disarmament and don't let Iraq avoid responsibility.

Following the meeting, the President met with a group of Republican governors who are in town visiting Washington. And then the President had a meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister and Defense Minister in the Oval Office. During that meeting, the two discussed -- or the three discussed the ABM treaty, the situation in Georgia, as well as the situation in Iraq.

And then the President had a meeting with Senator Phil Gramm and Senator Zell Miller, a bipartisan group that is working to get passed homeland security in the Senate.

The President will later depart for Camp David, where he will spend the weekend.

Enjoy your daily dose of Dubya!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: From Ari Fleischer: September 11th has changed substantially America's way of viewing how vulnerable we are. That attack did not come from a former superpower or a former rival; it came from a crumbling regime that is a parasite, that had a parasite of the terrorists take over that country, in Afghanistan, and bring the threat to us.

The Strategy states that the safety and the security of America is the first and fundamental commitment of our government. And the President will be realistic in assessing where those threats come from.

PING!!!!

Everyone hold Miss Marple in your thoughts and prayers this evening. Her neighborhood was hit by tornados today. Her home and family were spared- although they have no power. But only blocks away, there was total devastation.

We're thinking of you, MM!

You're right. Maybe they were discussing Germany's poor attitude.

The storms brushed by us, with only thunder, wind and rain.

I'm so glad that the President and First Lady will be at Camp David for the weekend, but I doubt that there will be much resting going on.

We need to continue our prayers for our President, who bears the great responsibility of making the decision to send our young men and women to war. His burden can only be lightened through his knowledge that God is Sovereign, and is in control.

My DH was in Indianapolis for the past two days - he drove home this morning . . . . just missing all the destruction. We've been giving prayers of thanks all day. We'll include Miss Marple and the rest of the Indiana Freepers in our prayers.

Thanks!

I had to turn off the computer for a while during the storm, but it wasn't severe right here, even though we had severe thunderstorm warnings in our county.

All I got from it was a wet carpet, because I forgot to shut one of the front windows, and a very scared cat who is still in the basement!

I haven't heard from husband or daughter who were both on the road.....going in opposite directions.......but am assuming that 'no news is good news.'

I, however, am here alone, so you FRiends need to keep me company!

Look at the smiles on the faces of the Russian delegation! Even when President Bush is under intense pressure he still manages to make people feel welcome and at home.

I understand that Condi took the comments of the German Justice Minister very, very personally. She's horribly offended that any German cabinet minister could make such a disgusting remark about an American president. She's even more disturbed that the German people have allowed it.

I too, can not tell you how offended I am by both the remark, Shroeders weak explaination (you couldn't possibly call it an apology) and the German people who took from us for years, have their prosperity as a result of a very, very generous victor, and show their appreciation by not even a wimper of dessent at that outrageous statement.

I got this in a post to me today. This scared the **** out me!

"This one was wild and a little spooky once you find the ghost in the picture. It took me a few seconds to find it, but when you do it just stands out. Like one of those optical illusions. To save you some time, concentrate around the table . Best not to focus too much on one spot. Look around the table and toward the window."

I'll keep praying all is okay with your husband daughter. I agree with the no news is good news attitude. I am here alone too. Dh is at a business related event, and Little Miss McLynnan is on her first date! She is seeing Bill Cosby with the cutest boy and his parents. I am new at this "mother of the date" business, but it was so funny when he rang the doorbell and came in to pick her up. Since I know his parents well I skipped the "bring her home safely or Mr. Mc will make you pay" lecture.

When I first heard about the storms in that part of the country today I immediately thought of Miss Marple, ohioWfan, Hoosiermama and so many more of our Freepers that live up there. Am hoping and praying they all are safe and well. Being from Texas, I know just how frightening and devastating even a small tornado can be.

Germany's attitude is inexcusable considering they conveniently forgot their homegrown Nazi terrorists slaughtered millions of Jews. Despite that, we rebuilt their country and now should not have to listen to them imply W is somehow comparable to Hitler, yet Saddam should be left alone.

Boy, I'm glad I'm not the only one that felt a sense of discomfort about the W/Condi pictures. Wonder what they were talking about. Those two really trust each other a great deal. God bless them both.

Today I had a little "Bushie moment." I was shopping in the mall. This one store had lovely decorations, knick-knacks, etc. in its window display. One of the things they were selling was photo frames. To show off two of their frames in the window, one had a picture of George in it and one had Laura! (And this is in LA!!!! And no, there were no pictures of Dems, or any other politicians, in any other frames.) I went into the store and found several gifts that I needed. Just brightened my day a bit! :-)

owf - glad you are okay!

rintense - thanks for letting us know about MM!

Miss M - Our prayers are with you and all those affected by that horrible storm. We're SO glad you are okay.

7of9 - If YOU can't get Vlad to understand...no one will - thanks for keeping up the good work!

Hi All - I don't know if you all know what's happening here in CA with our Gov's race. It was pretty cute yesterday and today... Gray (we all found out his REAL name is Joseph Graham Davis - Mom's nickname for him was "Gray"...so we're all calling him Joe now) will only agree to one debate at Noon, and one debate on Hispanic tv is still in the works. The L.A. radio guys, John & Ken have repeatedly given "Joe" the offer to have a debate on their show...drive time...on the hottest radio slot in the State. He has refused; however Bill Simon has agreed. Well, the ONLY thing that these two could come up with to try to sway "Joe" to do the right thing and debate Simon is to PAY HIM! So John & Ken and their station announced that they would PAY DAVIS $10,000. to participate in a debate with Simon. Then, Simon was listening to them, and called in. SIMON OFFERED "JOE" AN ADDITIONAL $20,000. with the money going to a mutually agreed upon charity, 'cause Simon can't trust Davis to give it to any other "charity" than himself. Simon said, "I'll give him the money to give to a charity...and I don't consider his re-election campaign a charity." It was so funny! Simon was calling Davis "Joe" and getting on Davis' case right along with our radio guys.

Today, the radio station announced that it would match Simon's $20,000 so the stakes are now $40K for Davis to show up.

My only question is where is Arnold, and Cong. Dryer and all the other Republicans in this State, when Bill Simon needs them???? ---None of this "I'll be back, Arnold...put up NOW or shut up!"

Yeah, I've often thought that I wouldn't ever want to be on the other side of that ticked off look! As an aside, the other day during a little press briefing in the Oval Office, a cell phone went off. My God! You should have seen the look he gave that person! Whew! Unfortunately for the reporter, it went off WHILE the President was in the middle of a sentence!

Well, they always did have a thing for despotic dictators who were into mass murder, so it's really no wonder they support Saddam. THAT doesn't shock me as much as them allowing someone to get away with making that kind of remark about an American president. They don't like us, they don't like our president, what makes them think we'll "dirty" them with our money.

I think we should close down every U.S. base in Germany and stop all military personnel in Europe from traveling there. AND we should take all German merchandise out of the BX catalog and out of all the stores. To hell with them and their economy.

I was even angrier when I read Schroeder's lame apology where he expressed regrets over the "alleged" comments of the Justice Minister. There was nothing alleged about the comments at all. I'm with you. Let's think of all the German products we can boycott. Beer comes to mind...
