A Preview of Bush’s Acceptance Speech

“The last three years have been a time of unparalleled economic calamity. They have been years of greater suffering and hardship than any which have come to the American people since the aftermath of the Civil War. …

“If we look back on the disasters of these three years, we find that three quarters of the population of the globe has suffered from the flames of revolution. Many nations have been subject to constant change and vacillation of government. Others have resorted to dictatorship or tyranny in desperate attempts to preserve some sort of social order. …

“Our measures have repelled these attacks of fear and panic. … “As a nation we are undefeated and unafraid. Government by the people has not been defiled.”
