Pres. Bush Calls Upon Supporters to Donate to RNC
President George W Bush himself does not send e-mail, however the Republican National Committee sent an e-mail on his behalf during the week ending 28 April 2007. The president urged recipients to donate funds to the party ahead of the 2008 presidential election.
President Bush called the party one of "ideas" and said it was "results oriented."
"To gain our majority in Congress back we must stand by our principles and act on them.
"In the battle of ideas, we stand with the American people. We believe in a strong national defense. We believe in less government and lower taxes. And we believe in the values and good judgment of the American people," President Bush wrote.
He went on to explain that he had "set a big agenda for our nation. But my political agenda is this: Electing more Republican governors, taking back control of the U.S. House and Senate, and making sure we keep the White House in 2008."
With a URL pointing to President Bush's donation page on the Republican National Committee's website, he suggested donations of $100, $50, or $25 increments.
While the party prepares for the next round of elections, "The most important job for the federal government is to protect the American people from harm. And the best way to do that is to stay on the offense against the terrorists and defeat them overseas so we do not have to face them again here in America," President Bush wrote.
"Republicans believe government doesn't create wealth, but the environment in which businesses can grow and people can realize their dreams. We did this by cutting taxes and keeping them low," he wrote, urging support to keep his tax cuts permanent and practicing fiscal responsibility at the federal level. "That starts with reforming the practice of earmarks, which will prevent billions of taxpayer dollars from being spent on unnecessary special interest projects."
On healthcare, the president said it is not the federal government’s role to solve the healthcare issue, but it is the federal role to empower consumer to manage healthcare on their own.
By donating now, the extra cash to the Republican National Committee ensures candidate recruitment and retaking control in Washington DC the president added in his postscript.
