Former President George Bush says his son, the current President, faces the kind of wartime situation no President since Abraham Lincoln has faced. Bush says we knew our enemy in World War II, but not today.Bush says our present-day enemies are “shadowy and cowardly” because they can strike “in the homeland” and bring “terror into the hearts and minds of Americans and others around the world.” Bush says his son faces “extraordinarily tough problems.” Bush says his son has the “inner strength, the courage” and “the faith to carry him through this ordeal.” Bush, who is 78 years old, says people often ask him what it’s like to have a son who’s President. Bush says it’s hard to describe, as he thinks more about family than individual issues.He says he gets emotional talking about it as his son is facing problems as tough as a president has faced since Lincoln.Bush spoke last night in Des Moines at a 100-dollar-per-plate fundraiser for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Greg Ganske. Bush said it was “critical” for Republicans to win back control of the Senate so his son could have an easier time pushing through his agenda. He says electing Ganske to the Senate would help do that. Bush says he hears the race is closing fast.
