Vice President Visits Northwest Arkansas

MAY 3, 2004 - Posted at 2:37 p.m. CDT

 

BENTONVILLE, AR - Vice President Dick Cheney says Wal-Mart is an example of the Bush administration's success in a difficult economy.

In Cheney's visit today to the retail giant's hometown, Wal-Mart leaders boasted that the recession never affected the booming Bentonville region.

While lashing out at Bush's presumptive Democratic opponent, Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, Cheney urged 1,000 cheering Wal-Mart employees to vote in November for, "the confident, steady, disciplined leadership of George W. Bush."

Cheney tried to use Wal-Mart's runaway success as the world's largest retailer to show that the economy is not this administration's weakness.  He says the economy is moving in the right direction.

Cheney also called on Wal-Mart employees to attribute their economic well-being to Bush's tax cuts.
