Bush's Legacy: The American Dream and More

In a recent speech, Hillary Clinton said, "President Dwight D. Eisenhower left a legacy of highways, John F. Kennedy the excitement over space exploration, and Lyndon B. Johnson created the legal framework for civil rights, Clinton said. "What are
we investing in today?">>

I can answer that with the confidence of personal experience: Freedom. Afghanistan, for example. Safety. Egypt's standing down their nuclear weapons program, for example.

An ownership society. America, for example: our son, 38 years old and so severely retarded that he has a full time staff to look after him, bought a house this year, thanks to President Bush's ownership society projects.

Our son, Allen's, income is around $1,000.00 a month -- actually less than $12,000.00 a year. But thanks to a US Dept. of Agriculture Rural Development loan that figured the monthly payment on the mortgage and the amount they would lend on his income, he has a charming 2-bedroom home on 1/2 acre of land outside of a small town in Mid-America.

The fact that a young man who can barely speak and cannot work can afford to buy his own home is a dream that we never dared to dream come true.

Yes, Senator Clinton, impossible dreams are coming true all over the world because George W. Bush is President of the United States.
