Ashley's Story

One of the new ads for Bush is Ashley's story. Ashley lost her mother on 9/11, and was closed down emotionally, but one day, when at a Bush rally, the president took the time to talk and comfort this girl - when he didn't have to.

The blog Small Victory discusses this incident, and what it says about Bush most eloquently:

There are many points people address when they are talking who they are voting for. This election, it's the war on terror for some, the economy for others. There's education, welfare, taxes, health care and a myriad of other issues that voters consider before making their choice.

But there's something else, at least for me. That's the intangibles. The things that a candidate won't base a whole campaign on but nonetheless are vital to gaining confidence in voters who are thinking about voting for them.

What is evident about George Bush in this ad is one of those vital things that give me faith and hope enough to vote for him with confidence. His sincerity, his passion and his compassion are all on display here. What's moving is that the captured moment in Ashley's Story was spontaneous; it wasn't scripted, it wasn't planned out in advance. It's just a brief moment that shows the true spirit of what lies beneath George Bush, President.

Oh, there are some who look at our President and see a liar, a thief, a devil in disguise. They refute even this small yet powerful gesture of the President, one in which he comforted a young girl whose mother died on September 11, 2001. They won't see what they don't want to believe.

What I see is a man with integrity. I see a man who believes in every word he says, who truly believes that he is doing what is right for this country and the world. He has passion and compassion and displays them both without the prompt of cue cards or the clandestine whisperings of Karl Rove.

When I listen to George Bush speak, I hear honesty. I hear a man who believes his own words. I hear the voice of trust

I could not have said it better. Integrity. Wholeness. Someone who really cares. This is another one of the reasons I am voting for Bush
