Bush Promises Steady Leadership

NEW YORK (AP) - President Bush is vowing that America will never show "uncertainty" or "weakness" while he's president.
In his acceptance speech to cheering Republican delegates, Bush said he has a "clear and positive plan" to create "a safer world and a more hopeful America."
He said the nation wants "steady, consistent, principled leadership."

He began his speech by recalling the Nine-Eleven attacks. It's been a recurring theme of the convention. Since that day, Bush says, the American economy has rebounded, and U-S troops have liberated (m) millions.

Bush also told delegates he's passed the most important federal education reform in U-S history, and that he brought Democrats and Republicans together to strengthen Medicare.
And, he says, he's provided the biggest tax relief in a generation.
