Every year the President sends greetings to the Jewish people for Rosh Hashanah. President Bush has been careful to not repeat any of his previous remarks:

  • 2001: “Laura joins me in sending best wishes for a blessed Rosh Hashanah.â€?
  • 2002: “Laura joins me in sending our best wishes for a blessed holiday spent with family and friends.â€?
  • 2003: “Laura joins me in sending our best wishes for a blessed Rosh Hashanah.â€?
  • 2004: “Laura joins me in sending our best wishes for a blessed Rosh Hashanah and a sweet New Year.â€?
  • 2005: “Laura and I send our best wishes for a blessed Rosh Hashanah. L’shanah tovah.â€?
  • 2006: “Laura and I send our best wishes for a peaceful Rosh Hashanah.â€?
  • 2007: “Laura and I send our best wishes for a blessed Rosh Hashanah and shanah tovah.â€?

Any guesses for next year?
