Georgians Everywhere Love Bush.

Georgians everywhere love President Bush.

Maybe even moreso in the country than in the state.

And they love Bush in the state of Georgia.

In the country, Bush received an astonishingly and refreshingly warm welcome:

It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Bush received the "rock star" treatment.

Freedom Square buzzed with energy:

You can read the entire speech Bush delivered by clicking here, but here are a few snippets:

When Georgians gathered here 16 years ago, this square had a different name. Under Lenin's steely gaze, thousands of Georgians prayed and sang, and demanded their independence. The Soviet army crushed that day of protest, but they could not crush the spirit of the Georgian people....

The path of freedom you have chosen is not easy, but you will not travel it alone. Americans respect your courageous choice for liberty. And as you build a free and democratic Georgia, the American people will stand with you....

We are living in historic times when freedom is advancing, from the Black Sea to the Caspian, and to the Persian Gulf and beyond. As you watch free people gathering in squares like this across the world, waving their nations' flags and demanding their God-given rights, you can take pride in this fact: They have been inspired by your example and they take hope in your success.

Publius Pundit has some great thoughts on Bush's Georgia trip:

At first glance you may think you’re witnessing the Republican National Convention all over again. But if you saw President Bush speak just now, you would know that he was winning the hearts and ears of a crowd of jubilant Georgians. When recalling all of the October pre-election polls reflecting how much the world hates the United States and especially President Bush, it would seem odd to the outside observer that over 100,000 people would wait in the heat, for hours on end, before impatiently breaking through police barriers just to hear Bush speak. In reality, however, it isn’t so far-fetched. Due to American support for freedom and democracy in the region during and after the fall of the Soviet Union, countries from the Baltics to the South Caucasus hold the United States in the highest of regards.

Awesome.

Next overseas vacation: Eastern Europe. No doubt about that one.

UPDATE:

Gateway Pundit has more great stuff on Bush's visit to Georgia.

President George W. Bush is such a great leader! Not just for our country alone but for freedom and democracy in so many countries. I wish more people would recognize how important it is to support our President...It is my hope that partisan politics will vanish, and Pro American politics, and pro freedom and democracy will take it's place...

Being President of the USA is a Big thankless job. Perhaps some day GWB will be considered better through history.
