President Bush gave a speech today in Springfield, Missouri. He addressed a lot of what John Kerry and company said about him at their convention... click on the link to read it, but I liked this section:

For all Americans, these years in our history will always stand apart. There are quiet times in the life of a nation when little is expected of its leaders. This isn't one of those times.

None of us will ever forget that week when one era ended and another one began. September the 14th, 2001, I stood in the ruins of the twin towers. It's a day that I will never forget.

I remember the workers in hard hats yelling at me, "Whatever it takes." I remember a fireman or a policeman — I can't remember which one — looking me in the eyes and saying, "Do not let me down."

And as those folks did that day, and like many other Americans, we took it personally. I took it personally.
I have a responsibility that goes on. I wake up every morning thinking about how to better protect our country. I will never relent in defending America, whatever it takes.
