Barbara Weighs In

One of the joys of being a Bush-Cheney campaign volunteer is that you get delightful personal messages like this missive from Barbara. Predictably, in W's world it's the mother who has to put out for Mother's Day. I wonder if she brought him flowers too?:
With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, I've been thinking about how proud I am of our children.

And it's with a mother's pride that I'm writing you today to ask you to support our eldest, George W., and his re-election campaign with a donation of $1000, $500, $250, $100 or $50.

George W. has been President during challenging times and he has met the tasks at hand with a steely determination and clarity of purpose.  From fighting the War on Terrorism to defending the homeland, the President has shown steady and strong leadership.

He has worked with Congress to lower taxes three times so American workers and entrepreneurs can get the economy growing again; pass the No Child Left Behind Act to help every child learn to read; and provide seniors with a prescription drug benefit.

The President has accomplished a lot in the past three and half years but there is much more he would like to accomplish.  He will continue to help strength our homeland defense and lay a strong groundwork to win the War on Terrorism.  He has put forward plans to save Social Security, secure pension plans and enhance retirement security for all Americans.  And he has a comprehensive energy plan to make America less dependent on foreign oil.

Earlier this week, our son's re-election team announced their "March to a Million" campaign.  Never before has a presidential campaign received contributions from over one million supporters.  With your help, we'll make history.

This election is going to be a tough one.  That is why I'm asking for your support.  For months the President has been facing negative advertising from John Kerry and all sorts of pro-Kerry groups. I've been particularly disappointed in the personal attacks.

Your donation, no matter what the size, will help advertise the President's positive agenda for America and deliver his compassionate conservative message directly to the voters.

America needs a strong leader like George W. Bush.  He is the right man to lead America during these challenging times.

Thank you very much for your support today. I hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful Mother's Day.


Barbara Bush
I have to agree with Barbara that her son's refusal to engage in negative advertising has elevated him above the unseemly morass of the Democratic attacks on his person. Keep on being steadfast and kind, George: America needs your shining example.
