You know, a lot of us grew up thinking that oceans would protect us. That if there was a threat overseas, it really didn't concern us because we were safe. That's what history had basically told us — yes, there was an attack on Pearl Harbor, obviously, but it was a kind of hit-and-run and then we pursued the enemy. A lot of folks — at least, my age, when I was going to college, I never dreamed that the United States of America could be attacked.

We can't hope that nice words will change their point of view. And so the decision I made right off the bat is we will find them, and we will hunt them down, and we will bring them to justice before they hurt America again.
Dubya can't help referring to terrorists as folks, and also vows as he has many times in the past to hunt them down, Manhattan, Kansas, Jan. 23, 2006

You didn't see a lot of elbows, political elbows being thrown under the tyrant, did you? That's because tyrants don't allow for the political process to evolve.
I'm wondering if this discussion is going to evolve beyond elbows, Manhattan, Kansas, Jan. 23, 2006
I believe there's an Almighty, and I believe the Almighty's great gift to each man and woman in this world is the desire to be free. This isn't America's gift to the world, it is a universal gift to the world, and people want to be free.
