Service

two-dimensional Bush

I like to tell people that the strength of this nation is not our military — although we intend to keep it strong. The strength of the nation is the fact that we’ve got compassionate, decent, honorable citizens who hear a call to love a neighbor like you’d like to be loved yourself. And that’s what we’re here to honor.

Each of you is part of a legacy of service that harkens back to our country’s earliest days. When Martha Washington — the husband [sic] of the first George W. — organized sick wards for wounded soldiers and made visits to battlefields to boost the morale of the troops, she volunteered for a cause bigger than herself.

And that’s why it’s vital for our country that our young people step forward — and serve a cause larger than yourselves.

  2. Bush’s “path to citizenship” alternative to immediate deportation of illegal immigrants nauseates me, too. But he’s not that short.

  3. Thanks for the comments, but y’know, I really think I should’ve gone with my first thought and just run a caption contest. Even with only four comments, the variety of reactions is impressive. It’s almost as if the guy were a blank slate.
