7-18-01 - George W. Bush Our 43rd President

I think Bush wants to appoint Cabinet members who represent the diversity of our country. He can bring our country together if the media and public will help. It is a tough job. No one can please everyone no matter how hard they try.

George W. Bush - Our 43rd President

.

I supported George W. Bush for President.   I started observing him about three years ago and generally liked his policy positions.  I also thought he had a good chance of being our next President. 

.

I attended an event for him in August 1999 at Reynolds Plantation in Greene County.  I heard him speak and mix with the crowd.  He impressed me as someone who “had his feet on the ground”.  I personally asked him to work to slow down federal regulations that are overwhelming local and state government.

Some detractors have tried to paint Bush as a lightweight.   Don’t believe it!  This fellow graduated from Yale and Harvard and was a successful businessman.    He has been elected Governor of Texas twice.   Don’t let anyone tell you that being Governor of Texas is “no big deal”.  It is!

.

I spent two years in Texas in the Army.  It has a rich history of strong leaders and successful politicians.   Bush was successful in getting people of all parties and persuasions to work together and had little opposition when he was reelected.  Bush follows persons like John Connally and Ann Richards who were nationally known after becoming the Governor of Texas.  

Texas is a big state!  It has a lot going on.  The Texas Governor is definitely involved in political decisions and power at a high level and is capable of being the nation’s Chief Executive.

I think Bush wants to appoint Cabinet members who represent the diversity of our country.   He can bring our country together if the media and public will help.   It is a tough job.  No one can please everyone no matter how hard they try.  I do believe George W. Bush will be a respected and successful President.
