GOOD NEWS FROM THE PRESIDENT -- (House of Representatives - July 22, 2004)
(Mr. SMITH of Texas asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. SMITH of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I would like to express my appreciation to President Bush for the good news he has given all Americans.
Thanks to his efforts to combat terrorism, terrorists around the world are on the run. Thanks to his economic initiatives, more than one million new jobs have been created in the last several months. Thanks to his education legislation, America's children are doing better in school. Thanks to his Medicare reform, seniors pay less for prescription drugs. Thanks to his tax relief, every taxpayer has more to spend on their family's needs.
Yet, many of the President's opponents, frankly, hate him and the national media is biased against him. Why does the President's good news bring out the worst in others?
Well, I do not know, but I do have a hunch that most Americans will give the President their heartfelt thanks on Election Day.
