Governor Bush Unveils Innovative New Website

AUSTIN, TX –Governor George W. Bush today launched an innovative new design for his presidential campaign website,, that includes personalization, a Hispanic site, a special section for children and 50 individual state websites.

"The internet is an efficient and innovative way to reach people directly with information and issue positions," said Gov. Bush. "This new design allows individuals to personalize the website to their interests and to get the latest news about the campaign in both Spanish and English. I hope it will be a useful tool for people who are interested in learning more about my presidential campaign."

The redesigned site allows people to create a personalized page with news and information in which they are interested. For example, a voter from Virginia who is most interested in education and economic issues can create a home page that always contains the latest news on those issues, information about the campaign in Virginia and photos and details about the Governor’s travel to Virginia. After the individual site is created, it comes up on the screen each time the person logs in.

The new website also includes a comprehensive Hispanic site, available through or at This site provides information in Spanish including campaign speeches, positions on issues, news releases, and video testimonials of Hispanic supporters.

The Youth Zone portion of the website is designed to teach children more about the presidential election by using America’s game, baseball, as a kid-friendly reference point. Children can learn about the election process and see the differences and similarities between politics and baseball in a fun and appealing way.

Governor Bush Welcomes You To His Virtual Campaign Headquarters

Welcome to - my virtual campaign headquarters. The most important question I can answer for you is why I am running for President of the United States. I am running for President because our country must be prosperous. But prosperity must have a purpose.

The purpose of prosperity is to make sure the American dream touches every willing heart. The purpose of prosperity is to leave no one out - to leave no one behind. I'm running because my political party must match a conservative mind with a compassionate heart. And I'm running to win.

We will be prosperous if we reduce taxes. I'll have a plan that reduces marginal rates so we can continue to create high paying high quality jobs. But a plan that also helps struggling families who live on the outskirts of poverty.

We will be prosperous if we reduce the regulations that strangle enterprise. And I will do what I did in Texas - I will fight for meaningful, real tort reform.

We will be prosperous if we embrace free trade. I will work to end tariffs and breakdown barriers everywhere - entirely - so that the whole world trades in freedom. The fearful build walls. The confident tear them down.

And I am confident in the American workers, and farmers and entrepreneurs. And I am confident that America's best is the best in the world.

And we must be prosperous. We must be prosperous to keep the peace. This still is a dangerous world. A world of madmen, terror, and missiles. And our nation is plagued by failing intelligence and aging weapons systems. Because a dangerous world still requires a sharpened sword, I will rebuild the military power of the United States.

So America will be prosperous and strong if we do the right things. But prosperity alone is simple materialism. Prosperity must have a greater purpose. The success of America has never been proven by cities of gold, but by citizens of character.

This country is hungry for a new style of campaign. A positive campaign. A hopeful campaign. An inclusive campaign.

I'll wage a campaign that attracts new faces and new voices. A campaign that unites all Americans toward a better tomorrow. I've learned how to lead. I know how to set a clear agenda and get results.

I've learned that you cannot lead by dividing people. I'm a uniter - not a divider. And I know that one of my most important responsibilities will be this: When I put my hand on the Bible I will swear to not only uphold the laws of our country, I will swear to uphold the dignity and honor of the office to which I have been elected.

Thank you very much for your interest and thank you for visiting
