What President Bush said to me October 1, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in politics.
With the recent emergency funding for science I decided I would thank as many people as I could in congress and the Whitehouse. I got nice letters back from my senators (Murray and Cantwell). I also got back a letter from the Whitehouse (on some seriously nice paper – how much do they spend on that!?). In it was this gem. Remember – I was thanking him for agreeing that science was important to fund:
President Bush is committed to encouraging economic progress, keeping America safe, and upholding our deepest values of faith and family.
I suppose I shouldn’t complain. I seriously am grateful that they and the congress supplied science with much needed funding.
