Guess Who Came to Town?

Some days you just know you’ll remember forever. Today was one of those days. George W. and Laura Bush came to my town in Ohio! I waited in line for an hour and stood for another hour and a half until they arrived. Then I stood listening for forty minutes. And I would do it all again.

People ask why I so ardently support the President. I’ve given it some thought and must admit that I don’t always agree with some of his policies (increased spending on education and the expansion of Medicare benefits). But I want him to be my president for one big reason. Character.

But how can you really judge a man’s character? I have a very simple test. Look at his relationship with his wife. A man who respects and keeps his wedding vows is a man who can be trusted. A man who is protective towards his wife is a man who will not hesitate to protect the country. A man who has chosen wisely when selecting a life-long partner is a man who will know how to choose alliances that will be helpful to the life of the nation. And a man who looks at his wife like she is the most wonderful person in the world is a man who doesn’t think that HE is the most wonderful person in the world.

To see President Bush was a thrill. To see President Bush with his wife Laura was inspiring. Let’s hope we see them for FOUR MORE YEARS!
