President Bush Touts McCain's Candidacy To Delegates

President Bush spoke by satellite TV hookup to Republican National Convention delegates, calling John McCain "a great American and the next president of the United States."

A larger-than-life image of Bush speaking from the White House
was seen on the convention floor, projected in a way that made it
appear as if Bush actually were on the stage.

The president was introduced for his remote-control talk by his
wife, Laura, who told cheering delegates that he had kept the
country safe in the nearly seven years since the Sept. 11 terror
attacks.

He told delegates he couldn't be there in person because
of Hurricane Gustav, which hit the Gulf Coast earlier this week.

    Anonymous, God help you. Your way of life and what you believe, liberal ways, are not how American thinks or does. It is doomed to Kerry Edwards tickets presented by the DNC. You vote party lines no mater what. No research or fact finding just party lines. Get to know McCain and Palin, you will be seeing them for a long time to come. Glad you guys at least tuned into the convention, you might have learned something but you didn't.

    Rudy Giuliani is acting like a total A$$ with this address. Republicans should hang their heads in shame.

    Why has the economy not been talked about at all at the RNC??? I guess cause the mess this country is in is their fault and they don't know what to say. McCain is out of touch with the American people. Can't believe anyone would vote for him. And Palin, what can I say, God help us.

    I am glad to have such a successful 2 term president that protected mine and your sorry buts at time the world became dangerous. You sorry liberal whiners cannot even cite one "lie" that is fact. You just harp on "he lied". No, Bill Clinton Lied, John Edwards Lied. Learn the facts, we have the internet now. Get away from the liberal web sites that spit hate toward anyone that doesn't agree with them. Well, we don't in NC and that is why we will be a Red state this election. Thanks Bush family for doing a great job with the country and your service to it. Too bad some people only know to hate. It is very sad.

    I really get a sick feeling whenever I see him speak. Can't wait until he's history. Vote Obama/Biden.

    one thing I willvote, you both get my vote of the Worst president and vice president in the history of our country. You are crooks, and liars. Anyone affiliated with argreeing with anything you stand for has been lied to. We need a new phase in leadership. You both have done nothing to protect our country. Vote Obama=Biden for Honesty and Integrity to come back to the White House. I hope that They both have plenty of lysol and bleach to clean the white house.

    Booooooo. How can anyone believe what he says. He has told so many lies it sounds and looks like a dumb satan. He was smart to stay in DC to save us money on sending a plane, and security to St. Paul. The RNC doesn't have the spark of the DNC...no comparison, except pitiful. McCain and Palin need to stay in Arizona dna Alaska and give up. They are wasting time and money. It is not too late to change your mind and vote for Obama-Biden.
