President Bush met with President Alvaro Uribe of Colombia today, and discussed the war on terrorism, as well as Columbia's continued efforts in fighting the illegal drug trade. Bush also met with the Boys and Girls Clubs National Youth of the Year finalists in the White House. This evening, the President attended the National Republican Senatorial Committee dinner at the National Building Museum. Meanwhile, First Lady Laura Bush was in Mexico City attending the 11th Conference of Spouses of Heads of State and Government. Enjoy your daily dose of Dubya!

Just listened to Art Linkletter on Hannity and whatshisname -- at age 90, Linkletter was still able to skillfully SLAM both whashisname and Daschle! I loved it!!! Bill Bennett's next -- more verbal body slams!

So in my book that makes him a KKK Porker.

Ugh - the image. Like Frasier said last night, "I think I'll go poke out my mind's eye"

I heard that they thought it might be the little girl who was abducted when her parents were killed.

Remember the Styxx song, Mr. Roboto? Even RoboCop had more charisma than Daschle.

Good comparison, lol. Isn't it nice to know our side is taking the moral high road? The nastier the Dems are the better they make W look. Let's all pray like heck they continue their downhill slide into November.

Thanks. Like I said she was halfway watching tv and she was not paying too much attention but she asked me if there were anything on the computer about it. She has not heard anything else and that was an hour or so ago. Laura is a lovely First Lady. What is going on with the dummycrats? It has been a long time since I have heard so much nonesense. How can anyone even think of voting for those characters? I would be ashamed to tell anyone I had voted for D. or B.

The contrast between President Bush and Daschle and Gore is so stark. Their attacks on President Bush are probably bringing in some big bucks to the Republicans. At least, I hope so.

I agree - Laura is the loveliest First Lady we have had in many moons.

Ever!

One of the Bush Groups I am on gained 30 members today. I think Daschle ticked off a few people.

Does she look a little like Audrey Hepburn in that picture......or is it just me?

The last picture in #13...Laura looks like a movie star.

I agree, but I am so glad she does not act or think like one. We would have another brain dead first lady like the last one who thought she was one.

I think we all have Elizabeth Smart in the back of our minds and think of her automatically when we hear anything like this.

That warms my heart. There are many Republicans running tight races that could use the money. They need to win. Daschle needs to be put back in the minority.

May a man intervene on this thread to say that I think Bush has a great tie collection. He can send me his leftovers any day, I'd be glad to have them in my closet.

Great suits, too. He must have a good tailor. But he knows enough not to get the press fixated on his suits and ties, the way Kennedy and clinton did, and even that jackass gore.

His clothes just quietly do the work of proclaiming that he is a gentleman with good taste.

That's good news ! I have been kinda bummed after reading on another thread that the Networks aren't covering this in an honest way -- I wondered if the "average" Americans (those who always watch Peter Jennings and Dan Rather, and have no idea who Brit Hume is) are getting a one-sided story. I was surprised to hear that CNN was reporting about the controversy over the quotes that Daschle attributed to Pres. Bush and V.Pres. Cheney not being completely true...

It was a GREAT day!

Yes it was .. Bill Bennet is on Hannity and Colmes .. He seems to think Dashole did this to take the heat off of Al Gore speech the other day ..

Their performances were like outtakes from the Rocky Horror Picture Show- Dr. Frank N Furter and Riff Raff.

They are mini-men. Not men at all really. How can they face themselves in the mirrors in the morning when they shave? Or maybe they just use wax?

A truly great day for Republicans and for freepers alike!

I know why it was a good day for Republicans, what with the Daschle meltdown, the (uncharacteristic) strength of Lott, and the ever present courage and calm of the President, but why was it a good day for freepers?

I've been working all day (first evening class of the quarter, from which I just returned). What happened today?

You are most welcome here, as I am sure rintense would agree. We have several men who post here. This is really not a "chick thread" but rather a thread of people who appreciate the President and the First Lady.

And I like his ties as well! You are quite correct...he is not a flashy dresser but is always dressed appropriately and in good taste.

I love the comment one of George's brothers made (can't remember which bro.) He said when Laura first met the Bush family, it was like Audrey Hepburn walking into the Animal House! :-)

My friend confided this to me several years ago when we were living at Fort Sill and Newt Gingrich came to visit the Old Post Quadrangle. That was neat too. (although I know some don't like him and he has disappointed me, he was pretty impressive.)

Hannity just said "Meltdown" too. Well, Daschle's comments really made my husband angry. He was home sick today and told me that he has seen enough of the message traffic when he was at V CORPS to know that this is a serious situation and Daschle et al are treating it as if it were nothing. They are not statesmen like Tony Blair who is standing up like a man even with all of his opposition.

It's interesting you brought that up, because when I saw the picture of Daschle on the Senate floor with his hand raised, it reminded me that every time Daschle is on MTP, he APPEARS to be so mild-mannered and polite and soft spoken.

Well ... I guess we found out who the real Daschle is, didn't we??

I think that was Marvin.

The Bush 'boys' were all very competitive and a bit crazy, and Laura with calm and serenity oozing from every pore must have been quite a contrast!

I think that comment was also in reference to the fact that W was totally unconcerned about his appearance, had a messy apartment (didn't he have the springs of his bed held together with a necktie?), and needed a bit of 'taming,' which Laura succeeded in doing.

On the other hand, she's made references to the fact that he was 'fun' and added 'excitement' to her life. (Cowboy take me away!) I'm sure he did........and still does! ;o)

I wish I had better photo software...

I tried to crop out just Laura looking stunning in her lovely dress...but the pixels just didn't do her justice. Wish someone would crop out everyone but her in picture 13 and post it. I'd definitely add it to my collection. Thanks for your work, Rintense!

Can you imagine the President's frustration in dealing with these snakes? The security of our country and the free world is at stake, and these pandering, self promoting obstructionists can't get their minds off themselves long enough to protect us. Is asking for a united front to the world asking too much?
