I hate to sound like a crybaby, but I was all misty eyed watching Bush land and have his photo taken all the crew. It was very touching and made me proud of Bush. He has a great rapport with the men and women serving their country.
The crew loves him. This was a great thing to do on the part of the President. He's done a great job and he's gotten much better at speaking. All the crew wants to be photographed with Bush. He's taking a lot of time to mingle with the crew. Just GREAT!!! FANTASTIC!

GWB is truly a man of the people. No silver spoon actions here. ann richards, eat your heart out, loser.
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!

Notice how happy and relaxed President Bush looks when out with the 'real' people. Much different than when meeting with officials, politicians and such.
