Photographing the President [Bush]
Time Magazine ^ | Time

Posted on 07/23/2009 9:21:19 PM PDT by Feline_AIDS

Photographs of Bush, with commentary by the photographers who followed him for 8 or 9 years. Quite the contrast with Barry.

Thank you.

The EVIL impersonator we have infesting the White House today is beyond sickening.

A real man. Respectful of the presidency, and with great love for our country and belief in the American people. A leader. I miss him.

I never lost my respect for President Bush. A man for his time, uniquely so. I believe history will treat him kindly.

WOW....that was great (except for the commentary by the twirp about how shocked he was at the "nationalism" in America after 9/11....he'd seen it in OTHER countries, but not here....")

Thanks for posting, the guy’s remark about the country’s support of the president was a little over the top. The hospital pictures were emotional.
I miss President Bush.

Wow. great photographs and I miss him too. What a completely different vibe he gave off as compared to clown currently living at the White House.

I agree, and I think history is coming faster than expected. AIf we get much more of all-Obozo-all-the-time and Obamanomics and Obama-the-race-baiter, pretty much all but the anti-American branch of the looneytune party will be looking back at the "good old days" with Pres. Bush.

Thank you so much for posting this. What a wonderful compilation of photos. It brought tears to my eyes, especially the pics of President Bush visiting the wounded soldiers. And I loved him with the chainsaw! Can you imagine Obama doing anything so masculine??? Of course not.

Be sure to turn up your speakers, FRiends. The narration is very nice and respectful. Wish the media had given W even a fraction of that courtesy as he served.

I miss this man!

Bush compared to Obama is aptly defined in the words class and crass.

Yeah I thought that bit marred what was otherwise a very nice tribute to him by two people who were very closet to him for 8 years.

However, the photographer who inserted that (snide?) comment did say something touching about him being ‘misunderstood’ at the end.

Thank you. I cried when I saw President Bush. Time is the enemy, but it was a beautiful composite of a decent man. It wasn't a cult of personality around Bush as the one photographer commented; it is a pride in our extraordinary country which Bush understood and honored. Obama is the cult of personality...the left doesn't understand at all.

The second speaker mentioned “a cult of personality” arising around George Bush. I don’t know if he realized what he was saying. Kruschev said that there was a “cult of personality” around Stalin. Bush was no Stalin (thank goodness).

Obama may have a cult following that shows no respect for tradition, law, and the rights of others. Bush could not have such a following because he placed himself after and under our traditions, laws, and our individual rights.

I remember how refreshed I was when Pres. Bush was elected in 2000 after the Clintons' disastrous reign and rule.

I NEVER LOST that sense of refreshment for the 8 years Bush occupied the Oval. Not for an instant.

God bless him

Thanks for the great post.

Nice.

GWB loved God, loved his wife and family, and loved his country.

And he was never afraid to show it.

Thank you for posting this. I miss President Bush. I really hate it when people talk about him being an idiot. His knowledge of what was going on in the world was impressive. If you talk to those who were able to meet with him they will tell you was much more on top of things than the media would ever let you know.

Aug 2004 I was hired by the RNC to photograph Pres. Bush while he was visiting Las Vegas. I spent 4 hrs with hima nd his team and he was engaging, easy to talk too and friendly with everyone he came near. He made it a point to ask stage hands, workers and even me if he could get us water, if we were enjoying ourselves and was generally the perfect host.

I was my best day ever as a photographer. I was before and will always be a huge fan of Pres. Bush.

You know, as a former liberal who became a Republican because of President Bush and eventually a conservative despite him, I have to tell you that I got caught up in his cult of personality because he has so despised before he ever even did anything. People attacked him before 9.11. For what - because he wouldn’t sign the hate crimes legislation when he was Gov. Texas? Because his accent is ‘atrocious’? They obliged me to side with the underdog. I came to feel protective of him. And it helped that I had no problem with him setting up a big bug light in Iraq.

So, I won’t begrudge that photographer saying that a cult of personality sprang up around the President.

The MSM tried to tear this man’s heart out of his chest!

They may have in their own minds...but not in our hearts!

I hope they are truly proud of what they have done to our country!

They will reap what they have sown!

I thought that too at first. Then, when going on in his commentary he mentioned going to Bethesda with the President.

I think the little liberal grew a bit in being with the President.

Oh my God. Time magazine did a wonderful job with this. You can check my posts during my entire time on FR and I've never said that before.

I only got to photograph the President once, from a distance. Here are a couple of the shots:

Oh Lord ... how I miss him!! His honor, his humor, his
decency, perpetual good will, his sunny smile, adorable rascal side, optimism and courage ... tears, too.

Thank you SO much definitely and Justa for pinging me .. THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD, SECURE AND PROUD DAYS. How blessed we were.

And yes .. ignore the deranged spell of the photographer. In 20 years, he’ll realize that he was privileged to be in the company .. the close rarified air .. of a truly great man.

~~~~~~~~

DO NOT ... I MEAN **DO NOT** MISS THIS HEARTFELT TRIBUTE!
