President Bush's Fourth

NPR's Brian Naylor reports that George W. Bush marked his first Independence Day as President with a visit to Philadelphia, the birthplace of the nation's democracy. He used the visit to highlight his support for faith-based groups involved in social programs. Later in a speech at Independence National Historic Park, Mr. Bush called on Congress to pass laws that grant funding for faith-based and community groups.
