A Month in the life of George W. Bush (News and many Photos) September 2005
georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news ^ | September 5, 2010

Posted on 09/05/2010 5:29:14 PM PDT by Kaslin

The month of September 2005 was a very busy month for President Bush after Katrina came on land at the Gulf coast and damaged the area. We see President Bush and First Lady Laura visiting New Orleans and other affected areas in Louisiana and Mississippi to comfort the victims of the hurricane and bring aid
The country lost Chief Justice William Renquist who passed away on September 3, 2005
President Bush nominated Judge Roberts to become the next Chief Supreme Court Justice. On September 29th Justice Roberts was sworn in as the 20th? Supreme Court Chief Justice.
President Bush remembered 9/11 heroes at a Medal of Valor ceremony. He also met with several foreign leaders and addressed the Useless Nations
For the quote of the month I have chosen President Bush’s Remarks which he gave at the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance Service on September 16, 2005

Perfect as always, Kaslin. The photos speak for themselves. You see true, genuine compassion and care President Bush has for these brave heroes. It is obvious that he does this straight from his heart, not from a big ego or doing it to get media attention and say, "look at me!"

His focus was to put a spotlight on the wounded warriors who can make remarkable strides after recovering from their injuries. Mountain biking is just one of many activites they seem capable of doing. I'm just in awe of their peserverance and toughness.

Thanks once again for posting the photos in the past two days. It's been a lot of fun seeing them!

You are very welcome and don't they?

It is truly amazing what they achieve, but with President Bush's love for them and his encouragement they can do it.

This morning on the House call segment on Fox News HQ Dr Siegel was reporting on one of the soldiers. He said the soldier was so down that he wanted to commit suicide, but was talked into the bike ride. He only has one leg and because his leg was amputated so high he could not use his prosthesis for the ride, but he made it.

pattyvita, thank you, soooooo much, for these fantastic pictures. Evokes so many emotions....makes me proud, happy and sad at the same time. I love and admire ‘W’ as much as ever and I miss him being CIC. And, it’s difficult to put into words the degree of admiration and respect I have for the military men and women and their families.

Exactly. President Bush always held the military in such high regard. He thinks of others first, not at all like a stuck-up, aloof and cold person.

You’re very welcome. The photos do bring a mix of emotions -both happy and sad. It’s great that President Bush is out there spending his free time to help these wounded veterans.

On the other hand, it’s sad that he’s no longer at the helm to lead the military at such a critical time as we’ve seen the current WH occupier trying to do what he can to undermine them.

But, anyway I’m so pleased that President Bush still cares and respects our troops. That’s what really counts.

To wrap things up, I just want to add two more poignant photos of President Bush dancing with one of the warrior bike riders, Melissa Stockwell. Very sweet and touching.

President Bush dancing with Warrior Melissa Stockwell during a live performance by the Randy Rogers Band on the last night of the W100. Melissa was injured in Iraq in 2004 and became the first female ever to lose a limb in combat. She completed all 100 kilometers of the three-day mountain bike ride.

I know many of you don’t like CNN, but please set your DVRs tonight because President Bush will be on the Piers Morgan show where he’s being interviewed at the Warrior 100k bike ride. It was recorded last week. Hope you make sure to record or tune in at 9 pm! (6pm on the West Coast)

Great interview with President Bush on the Piers Morgan show. But what a disgrace that Piers edited the segment down to 5 minutes while the first 50 minutes was devoted entirely to Ted Turner. Atrocious! Is it any wonder why CNN ratings are in the toilet? Bad programs, crappy news personalities, no consistency in their program lineup, etc.

GWB's media handlers should have let the Fox News crew interview him and put together an hong-long show about the Warrior 100k bike ride. Now that would have been much better!

Opps, I almost forgot. Dr. Marc Siegel did interview President Bush on Fox News last week at the bike ride. But I hope that Fox at some point will air some more unseen footage with Bush and the Warrior bike riders.

Kudos to FOX and their Dr. Siegel (who rode with W100); I thought FOX did a really good job highlighting the event. I also saw a comment by the Dr. regarding his opinion of Bush and it was really quite complimentary regarding Bush’s regard for the troops.

A funny thing .. that same weekend, guess who visited the troops - you got it! Obama and Michelle. How obvious is that ..??

Fox News is the best, hands down. They have been supportive of President Bush and the military for years. Their liberal media rivals are increasingly becoming irrevelant and they’ve made no secret of carrying the water for Obama.

What a shock...the Obamas visiting the troops in Georgia at the same time GW was having his Warrior bike ride. They have no shame, using the military as campaign prop!

The way Piers Morgan edited President Bush’s interview segment down to five minutes didn’t do it justice. It should have been longer than that.
