Such obituaries are prepared and billed through our Advertising Department at 223-141 J. BUSH: GOP leaders praise speech Continued from page I A speakers had avoided as too controversial. Bush expressed support for anti-abortion laws but acknowledged that "good people disagree on this issue." Reciting campaign pledges, Bush promised in broad terms to "strengthen Social Security and repair Medicare" and make prescription drugs "available and affordable for every senior who needs them." He said he would abolish the federal estate tax, which affects about 2 percent of Americans in the highest income brackets, cut income tax rates and double the child tax credit. "Give me a mandate," he said, "and I will use it." On a key military issue, Bush pledged to deploy a missile defense system despite opposition from - Russia and American allies who fear it will trigger a nuclear arms race. Poking fun at both Clinton and Gore, Bush said, "I do not need to take your pulse before I know my own mind. I do not reinvent myself at every turn. I am not running in borrowed clothes." . The delegates loved iL "Now that's a man. You can be tough but tender," said North Carolina state Rep. Jean Preston. "Home run after home run," intoned Arizona delegate Don Ascoli. GOP leaders praised Bush's speech. "He has a different attitude, and that came through loud and clear," said Massachusetts Gov. Paul Cellucci. "People are tired of divi-siveness. I think they see he's a different kind of Republican." House Speaker Dennis Hasten said, "I think our members are so pumped up, we're going to get out of here and just start really rolling." Rep. George Nethercutt of Washington said, "He's got great vision. We'll get to the details later." Former New Hampshire Gov. Walter Peterson raised an eyebrow about Bush's delivery. "I noticed his stern demeanor and a lack of a smile, which was attributed to natural nervousness," Peterson said. "I didn't see him smile once. It was a well-crafted speech. I don't doubt regular Republicans were very united behind it." rt Predictably, Democrats did not like Bush's address "Despite all the happy rhetoric, despite all the smiling faces, despite all the scripted displays of 'inclusion,' Bush-Cheney is the same old mean-spirited and divisive Republican ticket," the Democratic National Committee charged. Gore's convention opens Aug. 14 "" when Democrats gather in Los" Angeles. A two-term governor who tried his hand in the oil business and ran a baseball team, Bush presented himself as an outsider without a stake in Washington's long-running political battles. He said he may "lack the polish of Washington. Then again, I don't have a lot of things that come with Washington." Portraying himself as a leader who can deal with Democrats, Bush said, "I want to change the tone of Washington to one of civility and respect." After his train ride in the Midwest, Bush heads to the West Coast, where Sen. John McCain is to join him for campaigning in California, Oregon and Washington state. The Arizona senator won seven primaries last winter and demonstrated a strong appeal to independent voters whose votes will be critical in November.
