Dear President Bush,
I want to thank you very much for running, and becoming, the President of the United States when you did. I do not believe this country could have survived as well as it has with another person in the most important profession in the world. You were strong while the media was panicking. You did what was right, first coming to my hometown, where we have the greatest military communication complex in the world, and then when you went to New York, to Ground Zero, you gave the speech of your life to a grieving nation.
But, you did not just stop at that. You understood the threat of terrorism. So, you took the fight to their backyard, since they had attacked our backyard. What has happened in Afghanistan has been nothing short of amazing, cementing with the election of a president of that country just today.
People continue to not understand your actions concerning Iraq. Iraq sponsored terrorism. Those who attack you do not understand there are more terrorists out there than just Osama Bin Laden. You know this, and with your leadership, not only is the evil of Saddam Hussein ended, but Libya has abandoned its nuclear program.
Domestically, I want to thank you for cutting my taxes. The increase in the exemption for individuals you got through Congress has improved my standard of living. In no small part due to the tax break, I am now the proud owner of a home.
My mother died just this June, due to medical complications from the medicine she was taking. However, if she was in the medical system that has been proposed by your opponents, she would have died long ago. People in Canada wait months for hip replacements, her original issue. She had osteoporosis, one of the many diseases that are being looked at for stem cells, so again, I want to thank you for being the first President to actually fund stem cell research.
So, thank you, Mr. President. I am rooting for your reelection.
