Remarks in Oshkosh, Wisconsin

October 15, 2004

    The President. Thank you all. Okay. It's great to be back in 
Oshkosh. My only regret is I don't have time to drive by Leon's. Laura 
and I are thrilled to be here. We're glad to be back in Wisconsin. The 
enthusiasm in this State is high. With your help, with your hard work, 
there is no doubt in my mind we will carry Wisconsin on November the 2d.
    I want to--I am traveling with very good company today. So when I 
asked Laura to marry me, when I asked her to marry me, she said, ``Okay, 
I will, just so long as I never have to give a speech.'' [Laughter] I 
said, ``Okay, you got a deal.'' Fortunately, she didn't hold me to the 
deal. She's giving a lot of speeches. The American people have come to 
know Laura as a compassionate, warm, great First Lady.
    Audience members. Laura! Laura! Laura!
    The President. I know my opponent * has been in the neighborhood 
    * White House correction.
    Audience members. Boo-o-o!
    The President. He thought he was going over to Lambert Field. 
[Laughter] One of these days I'm going to make it to Lambeau Field and 
thank the Packers for being--setting such good examples for our kids.
    I'm proud of Dick Cheney. Now, look, I admit it, he doesn't have the 
waviest hair in the race. [Laughter] I didn't pick him because of his 
hair. I picked him because of his judgment, his experience, his ability 
to get the job done for the American people.
    I want to thank your Congressman, Tom Petri. He's a fine man. I 
appreciate you coming, Congressman. I see the chairman over there, Jim 
Sensenbrenner. Thanks for coming, Chairman. Finely, we're proud to be 
here with Mark Green, Congressman Mark Green. I appreciate you guys 

[[Page 2416]]

    You need to vote for Tim Michels for the United States Senate. He 
wisely married Barbara. [Laughter] I know somebody else who made the 
right choice. [Laughter]
    I really appreciate the Experimental Aircraft Association for 
allowing us to use this hangar. You're famous in Oshkosh, by gosh. 
[Laughter] One reason why is your airplanes. Another reason why is 
because of the good people who live here. I'm honored you all came out 
to say hello. Thanks for being here.
    I want to thank Jack Voight, the State treasurer. I appreciate the 
speaker being here. I want to thank all the local officials.
    I want to thank my friend Rick Graber. I want to thank the 
grassroots politics--politicians, the people who are putting up the 
signs and making the phone calls, the volunteers. I know many of you are 
working hard, and I thank you for that. It's takes a lot of hard work to 
get this many people out. But there's more hard work to be done. Laura 
and I will be campaigning alongside of you. Work hard. We will win in 
    Audience members. Four more years! Four more years! Four more years!
    The President. We're working--we're coming from the West. We were in 
Oregon this morning. Then we stopped off in Iowa, and fortunately, get 
to come to Wisconsin today. And one of the reasons we're coming west to 
east is, you might remember, we had a debate or two recently. I enjoyed 
those debates. Those debates give us a chance to express our opinions, 
and they show the stark differences between my opponent and me. See, we 
have different records, and we have different plans for the future.
    My record is one of reforming education, lowering taxes, providing 
prescription drugs for our seniors, improving homeland protections, and 
waging aggressive war against the ideologues of hate. The Senator's 
record is 20 years of out-of-the-mainstream politics, out-of-the-
mainstream votes without many significant reforms or results to show for 
it. The records are important because our country faces many challenges, 
and the next President must recognize the need to reform and to be able 
to achieve reform. On issue after issue, from jobs to health care to the 
need to strengthen Social Security, my opponent has failed to recognize
