Bush Sees 'Clear Choice' in November Election

(CNSNews.com) - "The campaign season has arrived," President Bush told a fundraising dinner in Washington Wednesday night, then went on to describe how his opponent -- Sen. John Kerry -- "has been in Washington long enough to take both sides of just about every issue."

Bush told the crowd, "Senator Kerry voted for the Patriot Act, he voted for NAFTA, he voted for No Child Left Behind, and he voted for the use of force in Iraq. Now he opposes the Patriot Act, NAFTA, No Child Left Behind, and the liberation of Iraq. He feels strongly about these issues."

On a more serious note, Bush said the upcoming election gives voters a "clear, unmistakable choice."

Here's how President Bush described it:

"It's a choice between the tax relief that is moving this economy forward, or putting the burden of higher taxes back on the American people," he said. "It is a choice between an America that leads the world with confidence and strength, or an America that is uncertain in the face of danger."

"I look forward to this campaign," Bush added. "I look forward to the debate. I look forward to reminding the American people that in the last three years, we've accomplished great things...And most importantly, I look forward to laying out a positive vision for the years ahead; a positive vision for winning the war against terror, and extending peace and freedom throughout the world; a positive vision for creating jobs and promoting opportunity and compassion here at home.

"I will leave no doubt where we stand, and we are going to win on the 2nd of November."
