So many funny things I could say...but will refrain from doing so.

What I will say is that the general sad state of politics in America today has us ALL drawing lines in the sand over some pretty ridiculous things.

And I shall do likewise. However, I would once again like to say well done to him for recognising the significance of DL and it's castmembers.

Do people actually think he wrote that letter?

Nope. But it's still a nice thing.

It's the unfortunate state today of politics and pundits alike, that if George Bush did visit Disneyland this year to celebrate the 50th, a negative spin would have been placed on his visit; even if his family had visited to enjoy the Park, someone would have raised some partisan public media bias to the visit.

While some PR or speech writer may have written this letter, it is indeed appropriate for the President to recognize the 50th Anniversary of Disneyland.

Disneyland is a national treasure, (even earmarked as a possible terrorist target due to its emotional and financial significance, I mean no terrorist would fly a plane into the Grand Canyon), and as recognized world-wide as a special place. I mean (almost) everyone loves the Mouse!

Yes the letter is appropriate, short and to the point - as wahooskipper and davewasbaloo pointed out, the letter recognized and thanked those "who have given their time, talents, and energy to the success of Disneyland."




and,.... Thanks iluv

This was a letter to recognize Disneyland's golden aniversary, not a statment about his views. It was a gesture, (kind of like a Christmas card) meant to show he cared about the place very much, despite all that is going on in our country and in politics in general. I saw it as being very thoughtful.

Thanks Iluv!

I think we can be 99% certain that President Bush didn't write the letter himself. Like all major politicians, he has writers on staff whose sole purpose is to spend hours crafting over the exact wording of any document to come out of his office. Most likely the chief of staff was notified by one of his staff of the 50th, asks if they want a letter drafted, the chief (really a political person) says yes, the letter is done and put in front of Bush for signature, just five seconds out of his very busy day. Still a nice gesture, but I wouldn't put much weight to it, either positive or negative.
