Remarks in a Discussion on Women's Issues in Charlotte, North Carolina

September 17, 2004

    The President. Thanks for being here. Go ahead and be seated. We've 
got some work to do here. [Laughter] Thanks for such a warm welcome here 
in the great State of North Carolina. It's nice to be back here. I'm 
here asking for the vote, and I'm here to ask for your help.
    Gosh, there's a lot of people back there. Can you hear me back 
there? [Applause] That's good. Thanks for coming.
    The first thing I'd like you to do is ask you to register your 
friends and neighbors to vote. And while you're doing that, don't 
overlook discerning Democrats like Zell Miller. And then after we get 
them registered to vote, when it comes voting time, head them to the 
polls and remind them if they want a safer America, a stronger America, 
a better America, to put me and Dick Cheney back in office.
    Listen, we've got an interesting way to talk about some issues 
today. One of the things you've got to know is, I've got a reason to run 
again. I'm asking for the vote because there's more to do to make this 
country a safer place and a better place for everybody, a more hopeful 
place for those of us who live here in America. And so I asked some of 
our fellow citizens here to share some ideas, or to discuss some of the 
ideas I have about a new term. I think you're going to find it 
interesting. I hope you do.
    Before I begin to talk with them about ways to make this country a 
more hopeful place, I do want to tell you that I lucked out when Laura 
said, ``Yes.'' One way to maybe look at this race is, you can judge the 
nature of a fellow by the company he keeps. I'm keeping great company 
when it comes to Laura Bush. I'm proud of her. Listen, when I asked her 
to marry me, she said, ``Fine, just so long as I don't have to give any 
political speeches.'' [Laughter] I said, ``Okay, you won't have to give 
any speeches.'' Fortunately, she didn't hold me to my word. The other 
night the country got to see what I've seen in Laura for all these 
years: She's compassionate; she's decent; she's strong; she is a great 
mom, a wonderful wife, and a fantastic First Lady for our country.
    I want to thank my friend Elizabeth Dole. She's a great United 
States Senator for the State of North Carolina. I want to thank my 
friend Robin Hayes. I appreciate you being here, Congressman. I'm glad 
you're here. Nice to see you, sir. Congresswoman Sue Myrick, she's here. 
Thanks for coming, Sue. It's great to see you. Richard Burr, is he here? 
Where is he? Burr, how are you? I'm in town not only to talk about my 
race; I'm in town to talk about his race. He needs to be elected to the 
United States Senate.
    I want to thank Pat McCrory, the great mayor of Charlotte, North 
Carolina. Mr. Mayor, thank you for coming. Cherie Berry is with us 
today. We got some statehouse folks. We got Patrick Ballantine, the next 
Governor, with us today.
    I want to thank the grassroots activists who are here today. These 
people put up the signs and do the hard work. I want to thank you for 
what you have done and what you're going to do, which is, coming down 
the pike, turn people out to vote. We carried North Carolina last time, 
and with your help, we're going to carry it this time.
    I know Teresa Earnhardt is with us today. I'm proud you're here, 
Teresa. It's good to see you. Thanks for coming. There you are. 
Appreciate you being here. I was going to the NASCAR race in New 
Hampshire on Sunday, but I'm going down to help provide as much comfort 
as I can to the folks whose lives have been turned upside down by the 
hurricane that hit the coast so hard. I know it's affecting parts of 
North Carolina. We send our prayers to the people whose lives are being 
affected in your great State, and

[[Page 2038]]

we stand ready to help when this storm passes through.
    I appreciate you all coming. Let me tell you something about what I 
believe. I believe Government should stand side by side with people, not 
try to tell people how to run their life. I believe the proper role of 
Government is to help people help themselves, not dictate to people. 
There's a fundamental difference in this campaign in philosophy of 
Government. And in the course of the next days coming down the stretch, 
people are going to see a clear difference.
    Today I also want you to understand I understand the world of ours 
is changing, and the fundamental systems of Government must change with 
the changing world. The Government of the--the society of ours has 
changed dramatically. For example, in the old days women used to stay at 
home. Now they're staying at home and working; they're inside the house 
and outside the house. That's a fundamental shift in our labor market. 
And yet, the labor laws haven't changed. So we're going to talk about 
flex-time and comp-time today, to help women juggle the needs of work 
and family. We want the labor laws to be family-friendly here in 
America. We want them to adjust with the times.
    In the old days, you know, the dad or granddad worked for one 
company and one career, and today, people are now changing jobs and 
careers oftentimes. And yet, the worker training programs haven't 
adjusted with the times. If you've got a workforce where people are 
changing jobs often, you've got to have a worker training program that
