“We have served America through one of the
most consequential periods of our history.”
– President George W. Bush
On January 20, 2001, President George W. Bush and Vice President
Richard B. Cheney were sworn into office. They brought with
them a clear philosophy and a set of policies to make America stronger,
more competitive, and more hopeful. They promised to:
• Rebuild and transform our Armed Forces and our alliances to meet
the threats of the 21st century.
• Raise standards in education and bring accountability to public
schools so that no child in America is left behind.
• Reduce taxes and unleash the entrepreneurial spirit of our citizens.
• Strengthen America’s “armies of compassion” by supporting faithbased
and community groups.
• Provide unprecedented support for America’s veterans.
• Resist the twin temptations of isolationism and protectionism by
engaging the world with confidence and promoting free trade.
• Harness America’s innovative spirit to develop new energy technologies,
reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and preserve the
beauty and quality of our environment.
• Reform our health care system, and make health care more affordable
and more accessible for more Americans.
• Foster a culture of life and affirm in law the dignity of every human life.
