Chimpy was inDes Moines, Iowa, yesterday campaigning for Republikkkan congressional candidateJeff Lamberti.
Dave’s Not Here, Man
No doubt in my mind, with your help, Dave [sic] Lamberti will be the next United States congressman.
Dave [sic] and I believe a lot of things. We believe that you ought to keep more of your own money. We believe in family values. We believe values are important. And we believe marriage is a fundamental institution of civilization.
Put Just Of Your Money In The Hat
I appreciate you giving — helping fill the hat. But I also want to encourage you to make sure you do more than contribute just of your money. I ask you to contribute of your time and your efforts.
Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three.
We believe — the congressman-to-be and I believe — the Senator, congressman-to-be and two Congressmen and I believe that we think you can spend your money far better than the federal government can spend your money.
The Befuddled War President
You know, when I campaigned here in 2000, I said, I want to be a war President. No President wants to be a war President, but I am one.
The best way to secure the peace for the United States, the best way to do — the most important job of the federal government is to support the troops, to support the young democracy, and defeat the enemy in Iraq — and what we’ll do.
It’s Got A Lesson
One of my favorite stories to share is the story that happened here a couple of weeks ago — or weeks ago — when I went to Elvis’s place in Memphis with then-sitting Prime Minister Koizumi of Japan. The reason I like to share that story is because it’s got a good lesson for our citizens, particularly younger citizens who may not have really studied that period of history too much, the history of Japan-U.S. relations.
Fighting the Moderates
We talked about the fact that Japan had a thousand troops in Iraq to help that young democracy fight off the extremists and moderates — to help the moderates fight off the extremists.
Talk the Peace
Isn’t it interesting that the son of a man who fought the Japanese is able to talk the peace with the Prime Minister of a former enemy.
