Statement by the President


I commend Congress, particularly Senators Bond and Mikulski and Representatives Boehner and Hoekstra, for working with my Administration and taking swift action to pass the Strengthen AmeriCorps Program Act. The bill establishes accounting guidelines for the Corporation for National and Community Service that will help put AmeriCorps on a sound financial footing.


"Terrorists declared war on the United States and war is what they got. (Applause.)

We have captured or killed many key leaders of the al Qaeda network. And the rest of them know we're on their trail. (Applause.) In Afghanistan, in Iraq, we gave ultimatums to terror regimes. Those regimes chose defiance and those regimes are no more. (Applause.) Fifty million people in those two countries once lived under tyranny, and now they live in freedom. (Applause.)"

also by Bushh43

"Two-and-a-half years ago, we inherited an economy in recession. Then the attacks on our country, scandals in corporate America, and war affected people's confidence. And that hurt our economy. But we acted."

Your administration inherited a recession???
