Great read!! Neat to see the appreciation the Amish have for Bush!
Thanks for posting this. Surely we won't see it in the main stream media
Oh, man. The irony!
IF he doesn't, will he then be considered an "anti-Dentite"?
"Oh, man. The irony!"
I was thinking the same thing. Actually i was wondering how John Kerry would attempt to pander to that crowd.
and now perhaps since they have seen, met and spoken with him perhaps all of the Amish will go out and vote now. What a simple people with simple lives. ya gotta love it.
"At the end of the session, Bush reportedly told the group, I trust God speaks through me. Without that, I couldnt do my job.
When the mainstream press gets a hold of that quote they might have a field day.
"The man said one of his twins had dreamed the night before that she was shaking hands with the president and now she actually had done that."
This was a really nice story. Thanks for the post. I'm a bit impressed with the Amish backing Bush since they are anti war. But, they are probably pro soverignity and democracy, which Bush is maintaing for this country.
Sorry about my spelling... was interrupted and forgot spell check.
JERRY: I am not an anti-dentite!
KRAMER: You're a rabid anti-dentite! Oh, it starts with a few jokes and some slurs. "Hey, denty!" Next thing you know you're saying they should have their own schools.
JERRY: They do have their own schools!
I love this President!
This visit could just easily have been a non election year meet and greet.
The untold talking point of the DNC is that we should be scared of Bush because he is a gentile religious man.
I would rather have this religious man than the other team of two lawyers of the "no controling legal authority" party. (remember its Kerry/Backwards)
I love this wonderful man. May some Amish who would otherwise not vote, reconsider.
I am a quilter and also a quilt collector. On many trips to lancaster County I have purchased quilts from Hanna Stoltzfus. I wonder if it was she who presented the quilt to President Bush. I would not be surprised!
I can tell you that the Amish people we met on out trips there are truely remarkable people...... and it was a joy to talk to them. We were fortunate to have had the opportunity to have dinner with one family, visit with one family for the morning and exchange stories in the kitchen while tasting their shoo fly pie, sit in on a family quilting bee, and of course the many visits to Hanna's quilt shop above her kitchen. I know the President will cherish their sincere prayers.
