Chapter One

Dear President Bush,

My uncle bet $5 that you would win the election.

Does he have to pay taxes on the $5?

Your friend, Christopher P., AGE 11 Amarillo, TX

* * *

Dear President Bush,

Maybe your brother Jeb will be president.

My brother will never be president because he is stupid and doesn't like to read.

Love, Betsy W., AGE 8 Newark, NJ

* * *

Dear Mr. President,

How much money does a president make?

Could you please write and tell me because if it isn't enough money then I will be a dentist.

Timothy U., AGE 7 Jamestown, NY

* * *

Dear Mr. President,

What do you do for fun?

Do you have play dates with the vice president?

Gary D., AGE 7 Kingman, AZ * * *

Dear Mr. President,

Me and my grandpa saw the funeral of President Reagan on TV.

My grandpa would like to be buried the same way.

Lisa P., AGE 9 Dayton, OH * * *

Dear President Bush,

Do you play golf? I read in a newspaper that every president liked to play golf.

Maybe Tiger Woods should be a president.

Kyle P., AGE 10 Long Beach, CA Dear Mr. President,

Did you ever see a Harry Potter movie?

They are exciting and the good side always wins. Maybe you could show the movies to the army so they can win the war in Iraq and come home soon.

Matthew C., AGE 10 Wilmington, DE * * *

Dear President Bush,

The worst thing about being president is that nobody leaves you alone. Maybe you could hide at Camp David.

John J., AGE 7 Lincoln, NE * * *

Dear Mr. Bush,

Where does the First Lady buy her clothes? She always looks beautiful. My mom looks beautiful too and she buys her clothes at K-Mart and Target.

Victoria C., AGE 8 Bend, OR * * *

Dear President Bush,

When will we have a woman president?

I am ready.

Brooke A., AGE 10 Peoria, IL * * *

Dear Mr. President,

I have never been to Washington but I have been to Disneyland.

Is Washington as much fun as Disneyland?

Samantha P., AGE 8 Valdosta, GA * * *

Dear Mr. President,

Do you know how to play chess? I am the best chess player in my school and I would like to come to the White House to play chess with you.

I promise I won't beat you.

Dylan C., AGE 13 Spokane, WA * * *

Dear Mr. President,

Do you drink milk?

It is very important that you drink three glasses of milk every day. My father told me that and he is a doctor.

Your friend, Eric K., AGE 8 Chicago, IL

P.S. He could come to the White House and give you a free checkup.

Dear President Bush,

I read in the newspaper that you go fishing with your father.

I go fishing with my father but he isn't president of anything. We don't catch many fish either.

Connor M., AGE 8 Portland, OR * * *

Dear Mr. President,

If I were president I would make a law that says you can't yell at kids.

Thank you, Noah N., AGE 8 Humboldt, TN

* * *

Dear Mr. President,

Do you get mad when they don't say nice things about you on TV?

Maybe you should just watch the weather reports.

Nancy D., AGE 9 Cincinnati, OH * * *

Dear President Bush,

Please send me an autographed picture.

Please write on the picture "To my good friend Lisa. Love, the President."

Nobody will know it's not true except you and me.

Lisa D., AGE 10 Boise, ID * * *

Dear President Bush,

Do you know all the words to "The Star Spangled Banner"?

If you don't I could come to the White House and teach you the words.

Your friend, Bobby K., AGE 8 Seattle, WA

P.S. I won't charge you.

Dear President Bush,

I think you are the best president since Lincoln.

Lincoln was a great president because he freed the slaves but not the kids.

Your friend, Trisha K., AGE 8 Queens, NY

* * *

Dear President Bush,

Do you get free clothes when you are president?

My uncle says that the president gets everything for free, even his toothpaste.

Love, Nicole H., AGE 7 Seattle, WA

* * *

Dear President Bush,

I am glad you won the election.

I knew you would win because all the girls in my class thought you were cute.

Marcella V., AGE 7 Carlsbad, NM Dear President Bush,

What do you like best about being the president?

I think the thing I would like best about being president would be getting letters from smart girls like me.

Love, Maria H., AGE 11 San Diego, CA

* * *

Dear Mr. President,

I read that you have your own swimming pool and movie theater in the White House.

That is real cool. The only cool thing we have in our house is a dishwasher.

Ellen S., AGE 8 Charlotte, NC * * *

Dear President Bush,

Were you surprised when you won the election?

Too bad you didn't bet that you would win.

Mark P., AGE 10 Bridgeport, CT Dear President Bush,

Do you have any friends in Congress?

My mom says your only friend is the vice president.

Richard D., AGE 8 Greenwich, CT * * *

Dear Mr. President,

Someday there will be a woman who will be president.

I hope so because women are smart, especially my mom.

Jessica D., AGE 10 Rockport, ME * * *

Dear Mr. Bush,

Did you ever tell a lie?

George Washington never told a lie, but I'm not sure about the other presidents.

Your friend, Joshua, AGE 7 Minneapolis, MN

Dear President Bush,

If we sent soldiers to Iraq because they were supposed to have weapons of mass destruction there and we didn't find them, why didn't we just come home and say it was a mistake?

My mom said I should never be embarrassed to say I made a mistake.

Sidney J. Age 10 Alexandria, VA

Dear President Bush,

Do you think we will have another war? I hope not.

My grandfather was in World War II and he told me it wasn't fun.

Scott C., AGE 9 Phoenix, AZ * * *

Dear Mr. President,

When did you ask the First Lady to marry you?

Did she say yes because she knew you would be president and she wanted to be First Lady?

John D., AGE 11 Miami, FL * * *

Dear President Bush,

Is Congress smart? Please write me your answer.

Thank you, Megan L., AGE 8 Lake Tahoe, CA

P.S. I promise not to tell anyone.

Dear President Bush,

Do your friends have a nickname for you? They used to call President Reagan "the Gipper."

What would you like to be called? How about "the Chief"?

Jeffrey H., AGE 9 Oklahoma City, OK * * *

Dear President Bush,

Someday I hope there will be a woman president.

But not my sister. She will drive everybody crazy-the Democrats and Republicans.

A citizen, Lawrence K., AGE 8 Atlanta, GA

* * *

Dear Mr. President,

When did you know you wanted to be president? Was it when you were a kid?

I am seven and I know that I want to be president or the pitcher for the New York Yankees.

Justin, AGE 7 Bronx, NY Dear President Bush,

I think you are cute.

Do you know Dan Rather?

Could you please get me his autograph even if you have to say something nice about him to get the autograph?

Heather P., AGE 9 Kansas City, KS P.S. My mom loves Dan Rather.

* * *

Dear Mr. Bush,

I think you are the smartest man in the whole world.

Could I come over to the White House so you can help me with my homework? I promise to vote for you when I grow up.

Matthew J., AGE 8 Cleveland, OH
