On September 11, our nation faced the worst attack in our history.
On that day, we had to confront reality. Our people were brave in their response.
At the time, we believed we would be attacked many more times that day and in the days that followed. Spontaneously, I grabbed the arm of then Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik and said to Bernie, "Thank God George Bush is our President." I've been saying that every day since.
We needed George Bush then; we need him now; and we need him for four more years!
President Bush is making certain that we are combating terrorism at the source, beyond our shores, so we can reduce the risk of having to confront it in our streets at home.
John Kerry's record of inconsistent positions on combating terrorism gives us no confidence he'll pursue such a determined course.
Terrorism did not start on September 11, 2001. It had been festering for many years.
President Bush will not submit America to a "global test" from other countries that seek to dissuade us from what is necessary for our defense.
Under President Bush, America will lead rather than follow.
President Bush is the leader we need for the next four years because he sees beyond today and tomorrow. He has a vision of a peaceful Middle East and, therefore, a safer world.
And together we have a responsibility to do all we can to give President Bush has four more years to continue winning the War on Terror and making the world safer.
Talk to your family, your friends, your coworkers and your neighbors. Make sure they understand the dramatic contrast between the President Bush and Senator Kerry.
And make sure your fellow Americans understand the power of their vote on November 2nd--and proudly tell them that, like me, you'll be voting for George W. Bush for four more years!
Sincerely, Rudy Giuliani
