    President Discusses Second Term Accomplishments and Priorities
    Grapevine, Texas - August 3, 2005

    THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all. (Applause.) Thank you all. Please be seated..  Good leaders make good decisions -- you made a good decision bringing this convention to Texas. (Laughter.)

    I'm pleased to be with the members of ALEC [American Legislative Exchange Council] , and I want to thank you for serving. And I want to thank your families for standing by you as you serve. I appreciate you putting your community and your state and your nation ahead of your self-interest...


    They are not on Iraq or Afghanistan  but on a cushy US post!

    •  well,isn't that special! (4.00)
      lobbyists serving? is that kinda like Bu$hie-poo "serving " in the Air National Guard? Buncha corporate shills are serving?whom might I ask?
      It's not anyone but their paymasters and has nothing whatever to do with serving this country.
      The real people ,who believed they were serving this country,are stuck out in the desert in 120 degree heat.
      While their paymasters try to juggle equipment and waterand food past the Halliburton profiteers.
      Thanks alot .
