President Bush's Remarks at Bush-Cheney '04 Reception
President George W. Bush ^ | 6/17/03

Posted on 06/17/2003 7:37:40 PM PDT by Political Numbers Guy

WASHINGTON, June 17 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Following is a transcript of remarks by President Bush at the Washington Hilton Hotel:

6:46 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Thanks for coming. Thank you all for being here. Thank you, all. I would say, take a seat -- but. (Laughter.) Thanks for coming, there's nothing like having a few friends over for a cocktail or two. (Laughter.)

I appreciate you all being here. I had an uneventful ride over from the White House, nobody got hurt and my Segway is parked outside. (Laughter.)

I do want to thank you all for coming. Your support is laying the groundwork for a strong nationwide effort next year. Your support is going to help us achieve a strong nationwide victory. (Applause.)

I want to thank you for your help tonight. I want to thank you for what you're going to do, as well. I want to thank you for helping to invigorate the grass-roots all across this country. I want to thank you for the phone calls you'll make, for the signs you'll put up in the yard, and for helping spread the positive message of this administration. (Applause.)

The political season will come in its own time. Right now, this administration is focused on the people's business. We've got a lot on the agenda. We will continue to earn the confidence of the American people by keeping this nation prosperous, strong and secure. (Applause.)

I want to thank -- I want to thank Marv and Doro for reading the introductions just like I wrote them. (Laughter.) I really am sorry that one member of our family is not here, the great First Lady of the United States. (Applause.) She sends her best.

Now that she's not here, I can tell you, I am incredibly proud of the job she is doing. She is a strong, steady, gracious First Lady. (Applause.) And I say, now that she's not here, she'd probably be angry with me for bragging on her.

I want to thank the chairman of our campaign-to-be, Mark Racicot. I want to appreciate Mark for his service to our country. (Applause.) I appreciate so very much my friend Mercer Reynolds' willingness to be the chairman of the Bush-Cheney National Finance Committee. This is our first event, as Marv and Doro indicated. It also happens to be Mercer's 58th birthday. (Applause.) He doesn't look a year older than 58. (Laughter.)

I want to thank Julie Finley, Shelly Kamins, Jim and Sandy Langdon, Dwight and Martha Schar and Dick Hug for being the co-chairmen of this event. (Applause.) I want to thank all the folks who worked hard to put it on. Mostly, I want to thank you all for your generous contributions.

You know, in the last two and a half years, our great nation has faced some great challenges. And we have acted decisively to confront them.

I came to this office to solve problems, not to pass them on to other Presidents and other generations. (Applause.) I came to seize opportunities, and not let them slip away. We are meeting the tests of our time. Terrorists declared war on the United States and war is what they got. (Applause.)

We have captured or killed many key leaders of the al Qaeda network. And the rest of them know we're on their trail. (Applause.) In Afghanistan, in Iraq, we gave ultimatums to terror regimes. Those regimes chose defiance and those regimes are no more. (Applause.) Fifty million people in those two countries once lived under tyranny, and now they live in freedom. (Applause.)

Two-and-a-half years ago, our military was not receiving the resources as needed, and morale was beginning to suffer. We increased the defense budget to prepare for threats of a new era.

And today, no one in the world can question the skill, and strength, and spirit of the United States military. (Applause.)

Two-and-a-half years ago, we inherited an economy in recession. Then the attacks on our country, scandals in corporate America, and war affected people's confidence. And that hurt our economy. But we acted. We passed tough new laws to hold corporate criminals to account. We got the economy going again because we worked with the United States Congress to pass historic tax relief, not once, but twice. (Applause.)

This administration stood on principled ground. We understand that when Americans have more take-home pay to spend or invest, the economy grows, and people are more likely to find a job. We're returning more money to American families to help pay their bills. We're reducing taxes on dividends and capital gains to encourage investment. We're giving small businesses incentives to expand and to hire new people.

With all these actions, we have laid the foundation for greater prosperity -- and, more importantly, more jobs all across America so our fellow citizens have a chance to live the American Dream. (Applause.)

Two-and-a-half years ago there was a lot of talk about education reform, but not much action. So I called for, and Congress passed, the No Child Left Behind legislation, with a solid bipartisan majority, delivering the most dramatic education reforms in a generation.

We're bringing high standards and accountability to every public school in America. Every child can learn the basics of reading and math, and every school must teach those basics. This administration is challenging the soft bigotry of low expectations. The days of excuse-making are over. We now expect results in every classroom, so not one single child in America will be left behind. (Applause.)

We have reorganized the government and created a Department of Homeland Security to safeguard the borders and ports of America and to protect our people. We passed trade promotion authority to open new markets for America's farmers and ranchers and manufacturers. We passed a budget agreement that is helping to maintain spending discipline in Washington, D.C.

On issue after issue we acted on principle. We kept our word. And we made progress for the American people. (Applause.)

And I want to thank the United States Congress for joining in these achievements. We will continue to work together to change the tone in Washington, D.C. by showing goodwill and by focusing on results.

One of the reasons this administration has been successful is because I have surrounded myself with really fine men and women who serve the people of America. They're task-oriented people. They know their job is to get results on behalf of the people.

There is no finer member of my administration then our Vice President, Dick Cheney. (Applause.) He's a great friend, a great advisor, a steady hand. He is the finest Vice President our nation has ever had -- (applause) -- even though mother may not agree. (Laughter.)

The Vice President and the members of the Cabinet and all who work in this administration have formed a great team of true public servants who put the interests of the American people first. In two-and-a-half years, we've come far, yet our work is only beginning. We have great goals worthy of this great nation.

First, America is committed to expanding the realm of freedom and peace, for our own security, and for the benefit of the world. (Applause.) And, second, in our own country, we must work for a society of prosperity and compassion, so that every citizen has a chance to work and succeed and realize the promise of America.

Across this world it has never been more clear that the future of freedom and peace depend on the actions of America. This nation is freedom's home and freedom's defender. We welcome this charge of history and we will keep this charge of history. (Applause.)

The war on terror continues. The enemies of freedom are not idle, and neither are we. The country will not rest, we will not tire and we will not stop until the danger to the free world is removed. (Applause.) Yet, our national interest involves more than eliminating aggressive threats to our safety. Our greatest security comes from the advance of human liberty, because free nations do not support terror. Free nations do not attack their neighbors. Free nations do not threaten the world with weapons of mass destruction. (Applause.)

As Americans, we believe that freedom is the deepest need and hope of every human heart. And we believe that freedom is the right of every person. And we believe that freedom is the future of every nation. (Applause.)

I also understand that unprecedented influence brings tremendous responsibilities. We have duties in the world, and when we see disease, and starvation, and hopeless poverty, we will not turn away. On the continent of Africa, America is now committed to bringing the healing power of medicine to millions of men and women and children now suffering with AIDS. (Applause.) We will lead the world in this great work of rescue.

We face challenges at home, and our actions prove that we are equal to those challenges. We have a duty to keep our commitment to America's seniors by strengthening and modernizing Medicare, so they have more choices and better access to prescription drugs. (Applause.)

The time has arrived for Congress to pass Medicare reform. (Applause.) And that reform must give seniors good options that meet their needs. Members of Congress and their staffs currently get a choice of health care plans. And seniors ought to have the same kind of choices, including the choice to keep their Medicare coverage the way it is. If choice is good for members of the United States Congress, it is good for America's seniors. (Applause.)

And for the sake of our health care system, we need to cut down on frivolous lawsuits, which increase the cost of medicine. (Applause.) Lawsuits which increase the cost of medicine, and force good doctors to shut down their practices. People who have been harmed by doctors deserve their day in court. Yet, the system should not reward lawyers who are fishing for a good settlement. (Applause.)

The medical liability issue is a national problem that requires a national solution. No one has ever been healed by a frivolous lawsuit. The health care system needs federal liability reform now. (Applause.)

And we have other measures to do to make sure our legal system is fair. I strongly support the class action reform bill passed by the House of Representatives last week, a bill which will ensure more settlement money goes to real victims, not to trial lawyers. (Applause.)

Speaking about legal matters, I have a responsibility as President to make sure the judicial system runs well. And I have met that duty. I have nominated superb men and women to the federal courts, people who will interpret the law, not legislate from the bench. (Applause.)

Some members of the Senate are trying to keep my nominees off the bench by blocking up or down votes. Every judicial nominee deserves a fair hearing and an up or down vote on the floor of the United States Senate. It is time for members of the Senate to stop playing politics with American justice. (Applause.)

The Congress needs to pass the comprehensive energy plan I submitted. (Applause.) This nation must promote energy efficiency and conservation. We must work to develop cleaner technology. And we need to produce more natural gas here at home. (Applause.) We've got a problem with supply of natural gas. And, sure, conservation will help with that problem. But we've got the technology necessary to explore for natural gas without damaging the environment. For the sake of economic security and for the sake of our national security, we must make America less dependent on foreign sources of energy. (Applause.)

Our strong and prosperous nation must also be a compassionate nation. I will continue to advance our agenda of compassionate conservatism, applying the best and most innovative ideas to the task of helping our fellow citizens in need. There are still millions of men and women who want to end their dependence on government and become independent through work. So we must build the success of welfare reform to bring work and dignity to the lives of more Americans.

Congress should complete the citizen service act, so more Americans can serve their communities and our country. And both Houses should reach agreement on the faith-based bill, to support the armies of compassion the -- mentoring to our children, caring for the homeless and offering help to the addicted. (Applause.)

A compassionate society must promote opportunity for all of us, including the independence and dignity that come from ownership. I believe strongly in promoting an ownership society. We want more families to own their own home. We want people to have a -- own a piece of their retirement. We want Americans to own their own health care plan. And we want people to be able to start their own business. (Applause.) As Republicans, we understand that when somebody owns something, they have a vital stake in the future. An ownership society is a hopeful society in America. (Applause.)

In a compassionate society, people respect one another and take responsibility for the decisions they make in life. My hope is to change the culture from one that has said, if it feels good, do it; if you've got a problem, blame somebody else -- to one in which every single American understands that he or she are responsible for the decisions that you make; you're responsible for loving your children with all your heart and all your soul; you're responsible for being involved with the quality of the education of your children; you're responsible for making sure the community in which you live is safe; you're responsible for loving your neighbor, just like you would like to be loved yourself. (Applause.)

I will continue to work to see that the responsibility era arrives in America. And we can see it beginning to happen as a result of the culture of service that is arising around us. I proposed and started the USA Freedom Corps, to encourage people from all walks of life, all across America, to extend a compassionate hand to neighbors in need. And the response has been strong.

Our faith-based charities across America are also strong, and they're vibrant, bringing hope and healing to our fellow Americans. Policemen and fire fighters, people who wear our nation's uniform, are reminding us what it means to sacrifice for something greater than yourself. And, once again, the children of America believe in heroes because they see them every day.

In these challenging times, the world has seen America's resolve and courage. And I have been privileged to see the compassion and the character of the American people. All the tests of the last two-and-a-half years have come to the right nation. We're a strong country and we will use that strength to defend the peace.

We're an optimistic country. We're confident in ourselves and we're confident in ideals bigger than ourselves. We seek to lift whole nations by spreading freedom. And at home, we seek to lift up lives by spreading opportunity to every corner, to every person of this great country.

This is the work that history has set before us. We welcome it, and we know that for our country better days lie ahead.

May God bless you and may God continue to bless America. Thank you all.

END, 7:15 P.M. EDT

After seeing that obnoxious cartoon at Democrats Compare Judges They Don't Like to Vicious Monsters comparing President Bush to Frankenstein, I am reminded of the person who truly looks like Frankenstein and he is not President Bush!

I have donated to the Republican party recently....but this type of hateful cartoon is a bigger gift to Bush than any of us could give.

It is so juvenile and small minded that only the most shameless of Bush haters will not be turned off by it.

Let's remember the adds of Bush pushing old lady in a wheelchair off a cliff before the 2002 election...and the Dems lost big time.

Be sure and keep these as talking points for when you come on board in May 2004 to help re-elect President Bush and Vice President Cheney..... I'll bookmark this and ping you on occasion to it so it can be fresh on your cut/paste schedule.

Isn't this going to be a grand campaign? Just think of all the help you'll be able to provide the President....

President Bush is so down to earth and has the ability to laugh at himself which is a quality that I really like in anyone. Having someone in the White House down to earth is like a dream come true after 8 long miserable years of sleeze and pompous people!

You are so right! First thing I thought of was that ad of the wheelchair being pushed off the cliff!

Want to win big over the DemocRAT candidate and make sure that President Bush has long coattails to get more Republicans (hopefully like Nickles and Inhofe) elected to the Senate and the House!

Want to spend Election Night enjoying myself this time instead of being on the phone off and on all night!

If Freepers are as disgusted with the cartoon as I am

I'm thinking maybe the cartoon is good news...I found an interesting site today. I'm still looking at it but one particular article caught my eye. Here's part of it:

Let’s look at some of the issues. Do progressives want more democracy when it comes to abortion? Hardly. In fact, the entire pro-choice movement is centered around PREVENTING the abortion issue from being democratically decided. It’s a rare pro-choicer who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow the states to decide democratically whether they will allow abortion or not.

--snip--

If people could vote on taxes, they'd go down. If people could vote on social security, if would be privatized (in part). If they could vote (as they did in CA) on affirmative action, it would be abolished—the courts are the progressive’s best shot on this issue. How do you think people would vote if we had a national referendum on gay marriages?

I think the liberals are terrified that President Bush might get to pick a Supreme Court nominee or two...and I think that's encouraging news for us!

No doubt they are..... Look at them trying to meet, write letters, etc. with the President regarding potential SCOTUS nominees..... Tommie, Leaky, Chuckie all have been trying to get in the act in the past few days.... Now if Lott can get off dead center and change the rules so that a vote is required..... oh well, it was a thought.

I agree. The SCOTUS is what scares libs most. Therein lies the most important decisions that affect our lives.

I believe if given the opportunity and success, President Bush may well leave us with something of incredible value.

It hit me when looking at the pictures you posted -- the DemocRATs do vicious cartoons while Freepers put up the loveable Herman Munster as the look-alike for Kerry! Personally think that speaks volumes!

Like the San Antonio Spurs, Good Guys are going to finish #1 in the 2004 Elections and we all know the Good Guys are NOT the DemocRATS!!!!

Believe you are correct. The Clinton DemocRATs seem to be absolutely terrified of having the SCOTUS and other Courts swing to the right where the laws are interpreted not made.

Thought the campaign would turn nasty, but was not expecting the level of attack that has already occurred. The Clinton DemocRATs are probably the most vicious people in politics and will do and say anything to regain power. Believe they will stop at nothing! We are going to see sleeze and more sleeze allegations unless something happens to change the DemocRATs and with the Clintons in charge, I don't see that happening.

AMEN!!! And that is why I held my nose and voted for Elizabeth Dole for Senate. For all her shortcomings, she will support the President on such matters.

It's even more important that we pick up more Senate seats in '04 so that we can override the vicious pettiness (I know that sounds like an oxymoron but think about it) of the 'rats.

Judicial appointees, whether to SCOTUS or other courts, serve far longer and have much more lasting influence than any one senator. A GOP senator who is more centrist than we would like is better, IMO, than a 'rat senator who will vote in lockstep with his cohorts simply to be obstructive.

And thanks for that link to the Bushenstein DNC video/cartoon.

I think FOX News said that the DNC is getting ready to send that out to HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of Democrats in an e-mail. (Maybe they have already by now?).

It is SOOoooo hateful, I hope it turns out to be YET ANOTHER backfire on the 'RATS !!

If nothing else, it is gas to get the GOP fired up ! I know I am !!

If nothing else, it is gas to get the GOP fired up ! I know I am !!

Same here!

I want to have such a landslide that the Clinton DemocRATs end up removing Clinton from in front of their name! After throwing the Clintonites overboard maybe and that is a large "maybe" they can start acting like a responsible "minority" party instead of the arrogant, lying, obstructionist, meanspirited behavior the Clinton DemocRATs exhibit today!

No problem -- Copied them from Dead's reply on a thread who had copied them from the website so I had to go to the website to get them to post. Great thing about Freepers -- sharing!

Glad you like the photo comparison! Spread it around!

I put that one together, and amazingly, it hasn't been stolen by StrangeCosmos yet.

Thanks for the link and the snippets. I think the liberals are terrified that President Bush might get to pick a Supreme Court nominee or two...

IMO, the impending retirement of two SCOTUS justices and the possibility that their replacements will be of a conservative legal mind is one of the "worst" nightmares for the Left. Conservative justices make decisions based on The Constitution of the United States which gives power to The People. Liberal justices "interpret" it and mold it, claiming it is a "living document" that is flexible and changeable according to the "situation" (e.g., General Election 2000; prayer in schools; The Pledge of Allegiance). The only case ruling on which they demand strict adherence is Roe v. Wade, which is actually one of the most flimsy decisions in SCOTUS history (in my opinion).
