I want my fellow citizens, if you're worried about your home, to call this number: 1-88-995-HOPE. Let me repeat that again. 1-88-995-HOPE.

Oh, I know there's a big debate about how to deal with these folks. I will just tell you my view. You can't ration with them. You can't compromise with them. You can't hope for the best with them. You must treat them as they are, cold-blooded killers, and bring them to justice before they hurt us.
Not only does he fall back on calling terrorists "folks", he drops in a new use for the word "ration", Edison, New Jersey, May 30, 2007

There's all kinds of ways to serve our country. We've got those wearing the uniform serving our country, whether it be abroad or here at home. But you can serve your country, as well, by feeding the hungry, or finding shelter for the homeless, or helping a low-income person fill out a tax reform.
Granted, this is a mistake that anyone could make, but it's Dubya after all, Westfield, New Jersey, Mar. 4, 2005

I have a record in office, as well. And all Americans have seen that record. September the 4th, 2001, I stood in the ruins of the Twin Towers. It's a day I will never forget.

And then came the attack on the USS Cole in 2000, which cost the lives of 17 American sailors. In this period, America's response to terrorism was generally piecemeal and symbolic. The terrorists concluded this was a sign of weakness, and their plans became more ambitions.
Or ambitious, perhaps? Marlton, New Jersey, Oct. 18, 2004

And we're making progress. It's hard to tell whether we're making progress or not, but we are.
So are you saying you could be wrong? Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

I want you to remind your kids that when it came to enforcing the doctrine that said either the doctrine said, if you harbor one of those killers, you're just as guilty as the killers, that we went into Afghanistan the first theater we went into, as a great country with friends, but we went in not to conquer anybody, not to conquer anybody.
Maybe when Dubya clears his thoughts, he can let us know what it is we're supposed to be reminding the kids of, Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

The other day, as you noticed, there was a fellow hiding in the dark caves or dark corners, not caves, it was in the city, dark dark corners of a city in Pakistan. He was going to be the 20th hijacker, bin al-Shibh. He wanted to come here to kill. He didn't make it, because we fortunately did not give him access.
Umm, Dubya, I'm not really sure if we can call the results fortunate since we failed to deny access to the other 19 hijackers, Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

It's very important for the school children here to listen to what I'm about to say. You're probably wondering why America is under attack. And you need to know why. We're under attack because we love freedom, is why we're under attack. And our enemy hates freedom. They hate and we love. They hate the thought that this country is a country in which people from all walks of life can worship an almighty God any way he or she fits.
Still going with this meaningless explanation, and inappropriately throwing the Almighty into the mix as usual, Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

Having trouble with the space-time continuum here, Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

You'll hear, we're going to spend the government is going to spend the government money here, and the government is going to spend the government here.
I hope that's not what we're going to hear, Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

In order to make sure the country was stronger, I pulled this page out of the economic textbook, the page that says, if you let people keep more of their own money, they're going to spend it on a good or a service. If they spend it on a good or a service, somebody will produce the good and service. And if somebody produces a good or service, some American is more likely to find work.
Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

I say priorities. I say priorities. The most important priority we have today and tomorrow is to protect the homeland. That's the most priority in America.
Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

We've got to understand, in America there are pockets of despair and hopelessness, places where people hurt because they're not sure if America is meant for them, places where people are addicted. And government can help eradicate these pockets by handing out money.
It's just that simple, Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

I'm talking about Iraq. That country has got a leader which has attacked two nations in the neighborhood, a leader who has killed thousands of people, a leader who is brutal see, remember, we believe every life matters and every life is precious a leader, if there is dissent, will kill the dissenter, a leader who told the United Nations and the world he would not develop weapons of mass destruction, and for 11 long years has stiffed the world.
Love the wording, Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

It changes when you walk into a shut-in's house, and say, "Can I love you?" or "Can I help you?"

There's a lot of good people there's a lot of good people, a lot of good people who wear the uniform at the local level, working hard to secure the homeland. A lot of good firefighters and EMS and police officers spend a lot of time, a lot of time worrying about you and your health.
Trenton, New Jersey, Sep. 23, 2002

It's important for our country to understand this new war of the 21st century is really not like any other war we've fought. You see, we fight people who, on the one hand, send youngsters to their death and they, themselves, try to hide in a cave.
That really sums up what's different about this war. Thanks, Dubya. Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, Jun. 24, 2002

All together, 75 Port Authority employees were killed on September the 11th. And you need to know, no matter how long it takes, we're going to hunt their killers down, one by one, and bring them to justice.
At the risk of sounding crass, the killers (suicide hijackers) can't be hunted down. They died on September 11. [I only mention this as it seems an important distinction to make.] Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, Jun. 24, 2002

As I travel our country, I remind our citizens there are thousands of people working as hard as they possibly can to keep America safe. Today I recognize I'm in the midst of that type of citizen, who's working hard to keep America safe. Thank you for a grateful nation.
Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, Jun. 24, 2002

Dubya mixing and matching two of his favorite concepts (unconvincingly), Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, Jun. 24, 2002

You know, the enemy would have loved to have seen a scrawny little budget up there.
You have to decide whether Dubya is really trying to divine the thoughts of the enemy here (which is hilarious), or if he is trying to paint anyone who would try to defeat his budget request as an enemy, Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, Jun. 24, 2002
