  • Awwww. Bush hugs one little girl in four years and he’s the Messiah. Thanks anyway, I’ll stay in the “reality-based community”.

  • This is horrifying. Worse than the Swift Vets, and on a level with the 9/11 images in the Bush ad, this shamelessly exploits the girl’s situation for political agenda.

    Almost makes me ashamed to be interested in politics.

  • This is exactly the stuff that people what to hear. Democrats feign care and concern by talking about “standing up for the workers” and “making sure every American has health insurance.” What Dems don’t understand is that true care expressed in one-to-one actions apart from government is what makes this country hum.

    President Bush is keenly aware of this fact, and his policies reflect that understanding. I think the voters will agree on Election Day.
