Doolittle Responds to the President's State of the Union Address

WASHINGTON, D.C. - House Republican Conference Secretary John T. Doolittle (R-Roseville) today applauded President Bush's resolve to see democracy take hold in the Middle East.  Doolittle also commended the president for his commitment to free-market principles which continue to encourage a thriving and prosperous economy.

President Bush delivered his State of the Union address this evening before a joint session of Congress in the United States Capitol.

"Tonight, President Bush reminded us all of how important it is to remain committed to the War on Terror," Doolittle said.  "We have seen real progress in Iraq with its recent elections, and to cut and run now would only undermine the safety of all Americans, demoralize our troops, and abandon the Iraqi people just as democracy is taking root in the region.  

"I also commend the president for his commitment to making America the best place in the world to do business," Doolittle continued.  "Encouraging free-market principles, innovative technologies, and fair trade will allow our country to compete and thrive in the global economy. 

"The president's vision for America will encourage our already thriving and prosperous economy, and his determination to keep America safe by confronting terrorists on their soil will help ensure a secure homeland," Doolittle concluded.

U.S. Rep. John T. Doolittle has served in the House of Representatives since 1991.  As Secretary of the House Republican Conference, he is an elected member of the House Republican Leadership.  Doolittle represents California's 4th Congressional District and serves on the Appropriations Committee, Energy and Water, Agriculture, and Interior Subcommittees, and the House Administration Committee
