Excerpt from Press Briefing by Scott McClellan (13 February 2004)
The James S. Brady Briefing Room, 12:30 P.M. EST
Q: On Sunday, the trip to Florida, the Daytona 500. We knew the President was a baseball fan; didn't realize he was such a NASCAR fan. (Laughter.)
MR. McCLELLAN: Well, then you must not have been following him too closely the last few years. Certainly, he went to the Texas Motor Speedway back in, I think it was 1999, if I recall, when he was still Governor of
Texas. He was Grand Marshall for the Pepsi 400 in -- that was at Daytona in July of 2000.
I think the President looks forward to attending the Great American Race this Sunday in Daytona. He appreciates the invitation and the opportunity to participate in the start of the race. NASCAR is one of the fastest growing sports in America. There are some 75 million Americans who are now considered NASCAR fans. And I think it's also a sport that is followed around the world. It's an international sport now. But it's a great sport that is a great and growing sport in America. And the President looks forward to starting off the race.
He's the President of the United States, Alexis, and I think that he -- you know, he was honored to go and throw out the first pitch at game three of the World Series back in 2001. He was honored to participate in other important events. He was honored to participate in an interview with CBS prior to the Super Bowl just a couple of weeks ago.
And as the President of the United States, he really -- he looks forward to attending this big event in NASCAR. And he views it as a way to really honor some true champions, both for what they do on the track and what they do off the track, because NASCAR drivers are people that put a lot back into the communities that they're involved in. They do a lot of work to help those who suffer from disasters like hurricanes. They provide a lot of support for people such as that. They've provided a lot of support for children and families in need. And so the President is honored to be going to the Daytona 500 and kicking off the Great American Race.
Q: Is he a NASCAR Dad? (Laughter.)
MR. McCLELLAN: I think he's a proud dad.
...
Q: Scott, the President has talked a lot in the past, especially lately, about his -- the need he has to restrain federal spending. The Senate just passed a highway bill that is quite a bit more than he proposed. Is the President committed to vetoing that bill to keep spending under control, or is it going to be something he's going to negotiate?
MR. McCLELLAN: If that legislation comes to his desk, the President will veto it. The President has made it very clear that we need to fund our important priorities, like winning the war on terrorism, protecting the homeland, and strengthening our economy. And then we need to hold the line on spending elsewhere in the budget. This President always puts forward responsible budgets that fund our priorities and hold the line on spending elsewhere in the budget. It's important to show spending restraint. And we called on Congress -- we continue to call on Congress to show spending restraint. This issue of the highway funding is an important first test. It is still in the early stages, but we will continue to call on Congress to show spending restraint. And the way that they can show that, right up front, is to hold the line on spending in the highway funding legislation.
Now it's very important to point out that the proposal the President put forward for $256 billion over the next six years is a 21 percent increase over the previous six years. It's a responsible funding proposal for our important highway and transportation needs. But we need to continue to work to cut the deficit in half over the next five years. And it's important that we show spending restraint.
And so the President, if that legislation that passed the Senate comes to his desk, he will veto it.
Q: Thank you.
MR. McCLELLAN: Thanks. Have a good weekend.
