The same qualities that make a great athlete make a great President

To our fellow Americans:

We have given much thought to the values and characteristics that make
a great athlete.  Our lives have been spent trying to run farther,
push further, and jump higher than the person beside us, or across the
field of our chosen sport.  With years of training and exhaustive
competition beneath our belts, we have identified the values necessary
to compete and win--values like personal strength, determination, a
sense of fair play and faith.

The same qualities that make a great athlete make a great
President--the determination to do what is right, regardless of the
latest polls, the personal strength to bear the weight of the nation
on your shoulders, and the faith that a higher power will direct the
actions of good people.

We see in President Bush these same qualities.

In 2001, our nation was attacked without cause or provocation.  The
President's values saw us through those dark days after the terrorist
attack.  The economy was rocked by the dual blows of the terrorists'
cowardly action and the reckless disregard of the rules by a few rogue
executives.  But President Bush's decisive, principled leadership has
moved America forward, and today our nation is safer and our economy
is strong and getting stronger.

The fight against terrorism takes decisiveness.  It takes continued
support for our troops and first responders.  But most importantly, it
takes courage and inspirational leadership in the White House.  In
these critical times, our President has had the courage to stand up
and do what's right.

For that and for his unwavering character, we choose George W. Bush as
our President for the next four years.  He is a leader we can depend
on to make the tough decisions and the right decisions.  Please join
us in supporting a candidate of courage, President Bush--a leader who
backs our troops defending our nation and shares our values.
