"You need to be proud of the United States military. It's doing its job. It is slowly but surely encircling the terrorists so that we'll bring them to justice. We're patient. We're firm. We have got a strategy that is going to work. And make no mistake about it, justice will be done."

"Except for Pearl Harbour, we've never really been hit before. And yet on September 11, this great land came under attack, and is still under attack as we speak. Anybody who puts poison in mail is a terrorist. Anybody who tries to affect the lives of our good citizens is evil. I am often at times asked by our friends in the press, do I know if there's a direct connection between what took place on September the 11th and what's happening today? I have no direct evidence, but there are some links. Both series of actions are motivated by evil and hate, both series of actions are meant to disrupt America's way of life. Both series of actions are an attack on our homeland and both series of actions will not stand."

"The terrorists wanted our economy to stop, it hadn't. They wanted to diminish the spirit of America, it didn't. They thought the government wouldn't be able to react. The government is going to react with economic stimulus packages which are good for workers. The House is getting ready to vote on that package. I urge them to pass it, and then I urge the Senate to act quickly to make sure that the American people understand that at this part of our homeland defence, our country and our congress is united."
President Bush visited a Glen Burnie, Maryland packaging company on Wednesday to promote a stimulus package he hopes will spark life into the nation's flagging economy.
The president said his proposal would help small businesses like Dixie Printing and Packaging deal with the economic slump caused by recent terrorist attacks, adding that terrorists have tried to "break our economy," but failed.
Bush said the terrorist war will be fought on two fronts and one part of that effort is to "encourage and stimulate" the economy.
Referring to the recent mailings of anthrax, Bush said the September 11th attack launched on the U-S is still continuing.
As the President spoke in Glen Burnie, the House of Representatives neared passage of a 100 (b) billion dollar tax-based plan designed to stimulate the U-S economy.
The legislation, which is estimated to cost more than 159 (b) billion dollars over 10 years, includes repealing the corporate alternative minimum tax, a new round of tax rebate checks, and bringing forward an already planned income tax cut.
Democrats have criticised the legislation as being politically partisan and too meager for average Americans.
