First Pup Barney Bush stars in a holiday video from The White House. Guest appearances are made by the Bush family, Michael Phleps, Shannon Miller and more.
President Bush's dog Barney is known for his gentle temperament. But when a White House reporter tried to pet him yesterday, he snarled and bit the reporter's finger.
Barbara and Jenna Bush speak at the 2004 Republican National Convention. Highlights:
- Grandmother Barbara Bush thinks sex is "something married people do but never talk about." What a fool.
- George and Laura Bush's pet name for each other is Bushy.
- G.Dub and Laura know who Outkast is, and both have been known to "shake it like a Polaroid picture."
"Today the president showed the nation his true priorities: $700 billion for a war in Iraq, but no health care for low-income kids; $50 billion in subsidies for huge oil companies; but no health care for low-income kids; $8 billion lost to waste, fraud, abuse, and no-bid contracts in Iraq, but no health care for low-income kids," said Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill.
"Millions of American children and their families won't forget that they are on the bottom of the president's priority list," Emanuel said.
White House press secretary, Tony Snow, said yesterday that he will leave the Bush administration soon because he can't afford to live on his salary. "I will not be able to make it to the end of this administration, just financially," he said. Snow earns $168,000 per year, making him the kind of poor most Americans wish they could be.
Formerly a conservative political commentator and talk-show host on Fox News Radio, Snow was appointed press secretary in April 2006. A cancer survivor, he announced the recurrence of his colon cancer in March and completed his last chemotherapy treatment yesterday, but he did not cite health as a reason for his departure. Snow is 52 and has 3 kids.
So when you least expect it, expect it. Karl Rove announced this morning that he will leave the Bush administration. Who woulda guessed that? Rove and Bush were thought inseparable like Frick and Frack,
Brad and Jen, Ben and Jerry, Dolce and Gabbana...
The Wall Street Journal reports that Rove will resign from his position as President Bush's Deputy Chief of Staff on August 31st and return to his home in Texas. Known as "Bush's Brain" and "the Architect" of Bush's rise to power, Rove is credited with masterminding Bush's gubernatorial and presidential campaign strategies. He says that he is leaving to write a book and spend more time with his family.
