Quotes of the day

posted at 10:30 pm on November 8, 2010 by Allahpundit

“The Secret Service wanted to get me to Air Force One, and fast. As the motorcade charged down Florida Route 41, I called Condi from the secure phone in the limo. She told me there had been a third plane crash, this one into the Pentagon. I sat back in my seat and absorbed her words. My thoughts clarified: The first plane could have been an accident. The second was definitely an attack. The third was a declaration of war.

“My blood was boiling. We were going to find out who did this, and kick their ass…

“While my emotions might have been similar to those of most Americans, my duties were not. There would be time later to mourn. There would be an opportunity to seek justice. But first I had to manage the crisis. We had suffered the most devastating surprise attack since Pearl Harbor. An enemy had struck our capital for the first time since the War of 1812. In a single morning, the purpose of my presidency had grown clear: to protect our people and defend our freedom that had come under attack…”

***
“I am at peace. I was honored to serve the country. I gave it my all. I’m not desperate to try to shape a legacy, because I fully understand that there needs to be time for history to be able to analyze–for historians to be able to analyze the decisions I made. I’m a content guy. I’ve got a great marriage. I’ve got a lot of friends.”

Dire Straits on November 8, 2010 at 10:35 PM

The 2004 election was too close and it put a scare into GW. unfortunately his staff started resigning once thelef became vitriolic. And he replaced too many of them from the RINO wing in a terrible attempt to move to the center.

His first term was a great success with all the challenges we faced. his second term was a disaster because he turned from conservatives like Cheney to listen to the rinos.

William Amos on November 8, 2010 at 10:37 PM

Thank you for your service and stewardship, Mr. Bush.

bbz123 on November 8, 2010 at 10:41 PM

I know he loved his country (unlike the current resident of the White House), but to me, he’ll always be remembered for “I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save the free market system” which has led to our country’s current economic woes.

A flawed presidency. A class act and a cat who took the gig seriously.

No doubt 9/11 shook him became his obsession to a fault during his presidency.

However, after standing atop the smoldering ruins of the WTC in Manhattan with stench of death in the air, I can say, I would of been similarly single minded for the rest of my term.

The subprime mortgage debacle, spearheaded by former HUD Secretary Andy Cuomo and protected legislatively by a$$hats like Bwaney Fwank and Chris Dud are the reason our economy crashed.

The night Obama won the election, someone here at HA posted (the best I can remember) “sleep well tonight, it’s our last night of feeling secure with GWB as our president”.

If nothing else, Bush needs to be remembered as the man who guarded the gates for us at all costs.

HawaiiLwyr on November 8, 2010 at 10:57 PM

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, particularly compared to JugEars. Just don’t forget that Medicare Part D, the biggest entitlement expansion in decades, came from him and a (R) controlled Congress in 2003.

He was no fiscal hero for the US. From Wiki:

Former Congressman Billy Tauzin, R-La., who steered the bill through the House, retired soon after and took a $2 million a year job as president of Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the main industry lobbying group. Medicare boss Thomas Scully, who threatened to fire Medicare Chief Actuary Richard Foster if he reported how much the bill would actually cost, was negotiating for a new job as a pharmaceutical lobbyist as the bill was working through Congress.[25][26] A total of 14 congressional aides quit their jobs to work for the drug and medical lobbies immediately after the bill’s passage.

I’m just slowing down the lovefest a touch. He did manage to play less golf though. JugHead has continued many of W’s foreign policies, including a large uptick in drone strikes.

Yep, I miss Dubya. Missed him on 21 January 2009. Miss him still.

J.E. Dyer on November 8, 2010 at 10:59 PM

W made some mistakes, but at least he was truly acting in the interests of this country and her citizens as he saw fit. Sometimes he knocked it out of the park; sometimes he struck out. He is human.

God bless you and yours, Dubya.

He has character.

Bloody hell, do I ever miss him.

For some reason, people think that by missing him, one automatically gives his entire presidency a flawless grade.

This isn’t true (or fair), but compared to Mr. Obama, George W. Bush was indeed the shining example of what to expect from an American president. I look forward to the book, and I hope he doesn’t pull any punches.

Agree, but he did not understand Islam and Islamists. His naive outreach to Muslim organizations in this country proved that. Islam is not a religion of peace, Mr. President. Hopefully, you have come to realize that.

Second best president of the last 50 years. The purists and back seat drivers sound pretty ridiculous when their criticisms are held up to that fact.

You may not miss his presidency now, but you will after another Obama, another Clinton, another GHW Bush, another Carter, another Ford, another Johnson, another Kennedy…

When you are reminded that there is only one Reagan, and that most presidents suck pretty bad in comparison, you will miss George W Bush. A near-great president.

American Elephant on November 8, 2010 at 11:13 PM

The love that was shown when President Bush threw out the first pitch down yonder in Texas is indicative of the man’s connection to the people; to the real people, as opposed to the beltway buttholes and the elite snobs in the media.

Good on ya, GB43.

Great interview. I was impressed by how relaxed GWB looks and how easily he handled Matt Lauer. He has the humility to admit when he was wrong, the backbone to take responsibility for the tough decisions, and the character to refuse to be led by polls. Mistakes and all, the best president since Reagan.

waterat31 on November 8, 2010 at 11:29 PM

I may have questioned a decision or a policy, but I never once questioned the man’s integrity. I never thought he put himself or his party ahead of what he believed in his heart to be right (even when I disagreed strongly).

That’s why I have no doubt he’s not concerned on bit about shaping his own legacy like other scoundrels who have dishonored and defiled that Office.

TheBigOldDog on November 8, 2010 at 11:34 PM

I don’t jest when I say we’d be a better country if the Democrat Party was more similar to George W Bush. Alas, the Dems have nothing nice to say about their country and seem to insist on bringing us closer and closer to the rest of the world’s less than impressive way of life.

Seven Percent Solution on November 8, 2010 at 10:47 PM

I haven’t. But pursuing democrat ‘solutions’ to democrat problems is the best way to make those problem worse. That’s what GWB did — made the problem worse.

I don’t fault him for his love of country, or for his actions in the aftermath of 9/11. I especially do not fault him for Katrina. But I do fault him for trying to ‘get along’ with democrats instead of holding them responsible for their malfeasance, and then helping them out instead of fighting back. I cannot think of a single time when Bush fought the democrats.

The left has a poor memory of history and sense of comprehension. For example, a tax cut is not giving money away.

Kini on November 8, 2010 at 11:49 PM

Just got through watching the Lauer interview and President Bush was so impressive. His honesty is unquestionable, and he is a very decent man. It makes you appreciate his leadership so much when you compare him to Obama. I can’t imagine Obama having to deal with 9/11 in his detached way. Bush took nothing off Matt when he tried to hang something on him.

You have to remember: the left have selective memory.

They can’t seem to recall that when we slashed taxes, that federal receipt of money increased substantially.

They don’t want to remember that their philosophy has been proven wrong, so they stick their widdle fingers in their widdle ears and yell: “Na na na na na.”

Denial to the nth degree. As long as they get away with their thievery, they’ll never quit. At some point, we’ve got to demand an accounting from the lot of them, Democrat, Republican, and otherwise.

Kini on November 8, 2010 at 11:49 PM

Well, from the Left’s point of view, it is giving money away. Think about it. If one is a leftist, one most likely believes that the benevolent government has ALLOWED the individual to keep the money they do have. It’s not really the individual’s money or earnings. And, no, I’m not going to claim the Left believes it’s God’s money either. The Left views that money as the government’s to redistribute as needed.

I’m watching the Lauer interview right now and the biggest impression I’ve had is how there is no whining from him, he takes responsibility, never blames anyone else and stands by what he did, no matter how it is viewed by others. That is a rare and precious quality, as we’ve all learned the hard way.

lizzie beth on November 9, 2010 at 12:20 AM

I will always remember the Bush years fondly.

There were dark times and uncertainty, to be sure, but there was prosperity and security also. Bush served with grace under pressure. He didn’t demean the office of the Presidency like Obama repeatably has done.

Dude!

Kini on November 9, 2010 at 12:21 AM

lizzie beth on November 9, 2010 at 12:20 AM

Are you sure he didn’t bring up how the American people just didn’t understand his brilliance?

MeatHeadinCA on November 9, 2010 at 12:23 AM

Bush is a patriot and good man. He was a good president who accomplished what was most important for the nation in a time of great peril. He was dishonestly and mercilessly besmirched by the leftist propaganda machine.

Obama is a poseur- an ignorant, arrogant, lazy, lying, leftist con artist who hates this country. He was relentlessly promoted and protected by the leftist propaganda machine.

Bush will always be cheered when he appears in a crowd of patriots.
Obama will never appear before a crowd of patriots. And if he accidentally does, parents will shield their children’s ears and eyes.

Most of the rabid lefties I encounter are convinced that we MUST spend in order to cut the spending. I’ve given up on them. They’ll need some sort of divine intervention because reason fails them at this point.

It is fun, though, pointing out how Obama just screwed over the lefty base

Hate when that happens. It’s like Purgatory.

Mistakes were made, of course. How could there not be? But this good and decent man never deserved the abuse, ridicule, hatred and distrust he received from liberals and the Left. Thanks, President Bush. We love you.

I miss GW for this but not for much else.

I must admit that he had several good points but several bad points too! First and formost he should have prosecuted the Clintons. We would not have them running around quite so loudly at this point if he had. Second, he should have taken a much closer look at Freddie and Fannie! We might not have to put up with Barney Frank any more if he had! Third: One word…TARP! I could go on but I do admit that he did protect this country too!

When I was a kid I was really critical of my parents… then I grew up and realized just how lucky I was to have such great parents.

That is how it is with GWBush. I was tired of all the criticism… I started to buy into all negativity.

But now when I can see how hard the job is… poor little Obama complaining about his routine problems…

We are only beginning to realize what a great President we had in George W. Bush.

He was a man for his time. He guided this country in one of it’s most difficult periods of time.

In contrast Obama can’t do anything right.

It’s a hard job, Bush made look pretty do-able.

I’ve been here every day recently, even posting lightly.
