How about Gmar Chatima Tova?

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?
