The Candidate for I
It has been said before, and it will be said before again. The liberal press should be called the liable press, because they are liable to say anything to discredit George W. Bush, who happens to be the candidate for I, or rather the candidate I would vote for if you were me.
The liberal press does not see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, only the rainbow at the end of the pot. Bush has a great vision for the future of our nationality; a vision that allows him to see, not the big picture, but rather all of the little things -- the important things that are so small on the horizon that they aren't even there at all.
All you have to do is look at the things he says to understand that George W. Bush has a plan for the American people that is not only equitable, it is fair.
Al Gore (or "Bore" as I like to call him LOL) doesn't know taxes from Texas, and one thing is for sure, George W. Bush Knows Texas. This should mean something to people, especially to the little people who are so very meaningless. George Bush has reformed the Texas' educational system by setting high standards; standards which the Governor has, by his own admission, lived up to.
When addressing the people of Florence, South Carolina, he showed his singular concern on this issue saying, "Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?" Who else has asked this ubiquitous question?
Certainly not Gore. He would rather tax and spend, and tax and spend than ask, "Is our children learning." Bush, on the other hand, will spend without taxing because he knows that when it comes to the future of America's children, who are unquestionably the Americans of tomorrow, "Reading is the basics for all learning." Bush knows all of this because, in spite of what the liberal press may want you to think, he reads the newspaper.
Unlike Al Gore, the son of a career politician who was born with a silver spoon on his mouth, and never had to work hard to get where he is today George W. Bush feels the pain of the lower and middle class, and that pain hurts him. In Nashua, New Hampshire, he said, "I think we need not only to eliminate the tollbooth to the middle class, I think we should knock down the tollbooth." And that statement is not only one he meant, but one that he said, too. He feels the pain of the toilers who toil or work to make their work a place of business. "I understand small business growth," he once told the New Yorksters, "I was one."
People are concerned with Bush's lack of hands on handling of foreign affairs, and they also think he has no experience at it. But experience only comes when you do something you have never done before, and George Bush understands he's never done the things he hasn't experienced. He was even quoted in the New York Times saying, "The fundamental question, "is, 'Will I be a successful president when it comes to foreign policy?' I will be, but until I'm the president, it's going to be hard for me to verify that I think I'll be more effective." Who amongst us could argue with that? Not you nor I.
Certainly his comments concerning the need to maintain a strong relationship between the Americans and "the Grecians" shows that he understands the ins and outs of global politics, and has a firm grasp on it. He does not flinch from addressing the hard issues, and he asks questions like, "Will the highways on the Internet become more few?" He says he wants to, "make the pie higher," and my friends if anybody can get the pie higher it is George W. Bush, the candidate for I.
