Hey; not to worry, Mate; I experienced a very similar phenomenon watching that coverage on FOX - and I'm not all that emotional a guy, generally.

Like one commentator just pointed out, he looks like he "belongs" flying a jet onto an aircraft carrier under way; nothing phony - like Dukakkas in the tank - about that at all.

And as many have observed, the loyalty, respect, and devotion between this Commander and his Crew was awesomely powerful and genuine. President Bush seemed to wrap his arms around the entire crew of that flat-top - about 5,300 of them, aren't they? - and they collectively wrapped their arms around him in return.

Did you notice how several of the "Abe"s brave young Ladies, when "W" gathered them close under his wing for a group photo, rested their heads on his shoulder as they might their "Daddy"? So beautiful!

Not to impose "religion" on anyone here, but personally I'm thanking God for a true LEADER of this once great, and potentially great-again, Country of ours!

Me too. I thank God for President Bush. He's such a great example to all, and shows such deep respect for each one of those people that he met aboard that ship. I love it too when he shakes their hands kind of roughly. He's such a man's man. It reminds me of when my husband shakes hands with another man he really likes a lot. It just shows that manly affection. So cool!

That is highly inappropriate behavior and not very professional. He is not their Daddy. And it is not respectful.

Yes, thank you. Yes, Dubya is a real guy. He's the real deal, a man. He's connected to the real world. Did you notice all the beaming, smiling and PROUD faces of ALL the differnt "ethnic" and gender groups on board. They all LOVED THE GUY. Our military is great!

No smug, arrogant, condescending, faux man of "the people" like Clinton or Carter either. Bush is the real, genuine deal. He has some humility and a lack of hubris.
