America is ready for new leadership: Leadership that will continue this great prosperity we enjoy but extend it to every corner of America and use it for greater goals. Leadership that lifts our sights and makes Americans proud again.
I see in Governor Bush the qualities of mind and spirit our nation needs, and our history demands.
In a time of partisanship, Governor Bush reaches across party lines to do the people's business. In a time of bitterness, he brings people together. After an era of tarnished ideals, he will return honor and dignity to the Office of President.
As Governor of a large and diverse state, George W. Bush has kept his commitments. He said he would improve the public schools, and he has. He promised to reduce taxes and he has twice while keeping the budget in surplus. He pledged to reform the legal system to get rid of junk lawsuits and he has.
He did all these things because he is a uniter, not a divider ... someone who works with Democrats and Republicans for the common good, and shares the credit for success. That is what we need in the White House. A leader with an agenda and the know-how to get it done. Governor Bush is that leader. And I will work with him to enact his plans to improve schools, save and strengthen Social Security, reduce taxes, and rebuild the military and encourage new efforts to confront suffering and poverty.
