The GWBUSH.COM speech writing contest

GWBush needs your help to turn hypocrisy into consistency! Win GWBUSH.COM T-shirts!


Write a speech that includes the three quotes below. They are in obvious contradiction, yet they perfectly describe the two main currents in the Bush campaign for president. Help the candidate come up with way of seamlessly integrating this splintered madness into a nice-sounding, smooth whole.

Your speech can be any length from a couple of paragraphs to several pages, and touch on any topics you wish. It should reconcile the Governor's request to have his own crimes forgotten and forgiven with his policy of tough punishment for other people's past mistakes. His accomplishments in Texas in this area include over 100 executions that have made it past his desk unimpeded, thousands of new prison cells for juveniles, and a lowering of the 'adult certification age' to 14.

The winner will be chosen at some point in the future and will receive TWO free GWBUSH.COM T-shirts as a prize.

Here are the quotes to include in your speech:
(To some degree you can break up the quotes or leave out parts. But the integrity of individual sentences and phrases should remain intact.)

"I'm not going to talk about what I did as a child. What I am going to talk about -- and I am going to say this consistently -- [is that] it is irrelevant what I did 20 to 30 years ago. What's relevant is that I have learned from any mistakes I made. I do not want to send signals to anybody that what Gov. Bush did 30 years ago is cool to try." --Gov. Bush in an interview with WMUR-TV in New Hampshire, when asked if he had used "drugs, marijuana, cocaine"

"I am committed to helping to usher in the responsibility era, an era in which all individuals in this great land understand they are responsible for their actions and the decisions they make." --Bush Campaign Literature.

“If we are going to save a generation of young people, our children must know they will face bad consequences for criminal behavior. Sadly, too many youths are not getting that message. Our juvenile justice system must say to our children: We love you, but we are going to hold you accountable for your actions.”--Bush campaign literature.
