Bush Speech in Springfield
Friday, July 30, 2004
BUSH: Thanks for coming. It’s great to be in the heartland of our country. And I want to thank you all for being here this morning to help kick off our “Heart and Soul of America” tour.
There’ll be big differences in this campaign. They’re going to raise your taxes; we’re not.
We have a clear vision on how to win the war on terror and bring peace to the world.
They somehow believe the heart and soul of America can be found in Hollywood. The heart and soul of America is found right here in Springfield, Missouri.
I’m looking forward to the campaign. I’m looking forward to getting out amongst the people. We’re going to Michigan and Ohio this weekend. Everywhere I’ve been going, the crowds are big, the enthusiasm is high, the signs are good. With your help, Dick Cheney and I will lead this nation for four more years.
I’m sorry Laura’s not here. I know you are too. You probably wish she was speaking and not me. She is a great first lady.
Today, you’ll have some – hear some reasons why I think you need to put me back into office. But perhaps the most important reason of all is so that Laura will be first lady for four more years.*snip*
