The Quotable Bush

Email Print

Have I missed any other stunning remarks that deserve to be preserved in the volume of quotations by the lunatic president?

  • They’re not happy they’re occupied. I wouldn’t be happy if I were occupied either.
  • I want to know why we haven’t found a weapon yet.
  • One of my hardest parts of my job is to console the family members who have lost their life.
  • I don’t want to sound like I’ve made no mistakes. I’m confident I have. I just haven’t — you just put me under the spot here, and maybe I’m not as quick on my feet as I should be in coming up with one.
  • This is a war against people who have no guilt in killing innocent people. That’s what they’re willing to do.
  • The Iraqi people need us there to help with security. They need us there to fight off these violent few who are doing everything they can to resist the advance of freedom.
  • I have directed our military commanders to make every preparation to use decisive force, if necessary, to maintain order and to protect our troops.
  • One of the things I was concerned about prior to going into Iraq was that the oil fields would be destroyed. But they weren’t, they’re now up and running.
  • It didn’t take me long to put us on a war footing. And we’ve been on war ever since.
  • I know the Iraqi people don’t believe that, that they’re better off with Saddam Hussein
  • I can assure the American people that had we had any inkling that this was going to happen, we would have done everything in our power to stop the attack.
  • Some of the debate really center around the fact that people don’t believe Iraq can be free; that if you’re Muslim, or perhaps brown-skinned, you can’t be self-governing and free. I strongly disagree with that. I reject that, because I believe that freedom is the deepest need of every human soul, and, if given a chance, the Iraqi people will be not only self-governing, but a stable and free society.
  • Iraq is a part of the war on terror. It is not the war on terror; it is a theater in the war on terror. And it’s essential we win this battle in the war on terror.
  • There’s a terror still in the soul of some of the people in Iraq; they’re worried about getting killed, and, therefore, they’re not going to talk.
  • My job as the President is to lead this nation into making the world a better place. And that’s exactly what we’re doing.
