I, I couldn't imagine somebody like Osama bin Laden understanding the joy of Hanukkah.
And I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower — the TV was obviously on, and I use to fly myself, and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."
Dubya quoting himself on his first reaction to seeing an airliner piloted into the World Trade Center, Orlando, Florida, Dec. 4, 2001
At this Thursday, ticket counters and airplanes will fly outta Ronald Reagan Airport.
Some countries may wanna participate in one way, but not in another. All we ask is that you participate. All we ask is that you use the same amounta effort the United States will to win this war against freedom, to win this battle against global terrorism.
Hopefully it isn't a war against freedom that he's calling for, even though that's what it sounds like. Chicago, Illinois, Sep. 27, 2001
Nobody can threaten this country. Oh, they may be able to bomb a buildings...
We're standing amongst the largest trees on Earth, and some of the very oldest. When the Mayflower arrived on the eastern shore of, this continent, the great sequoias were already here. When the seal was fixed on the Magna Carter, the great sequoias were already here. They were here when the Roman Empire fell, and they were here when the Roman Empire rose. And had Christ himself, on, uhh — stood on this spot, he would have been in the shade of this very tree.
Not only does he reference the "Magna Carter", he tosses a Jesus reference into the mix despite already having mentioned the empire that was contemporaneous to Jesus. Sequoia National Park, California, May 30, 2001
If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier... just so long as I'm the dictator.
After all he [Al Gore] claimed he invented the Internet. But if he's so smart, how come every Internet address begins with "Dubya"?
We say to seniors, "We understand how important prescription drug coverage, so prescription drugs will be an ingrinable part of the Medicare plan."
This is an impressive crowd, the haves — and the have mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base.
Dubya wears his heart on his sleeve at the Alfred E. Smith memorial dinner, New York, New York, Oct. 19, 2000
Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream.
I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully.
Conspiracy theories abound in American politics. I don't even need to be subliminabable about the differences between our views on prescription drugs.
We cannot let terrorists and rogue nations hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile.
You're working hard to put food on your family.

CONNIE CHUNG [NBC]: Just a moment ago Tom Brokaw, in an interview with Dan Quayle — uhh, Dan Quayle revealed that he may have made a few phone calls that would help him get into the National Guard instead of serving in Vietnam —
CHUNG: Are you aware of this, and do you think —
CHUNG: — that could be a problem?
DUBYA: I am not, no, and I also think service in the National Guard is a good thing to do. I mean, he could — I, I'm from that era, as you know. As a matter of fact, he happens to be one year younger than I am. He couldda gone to Canada. He decided to serve. I think Dan Quayle oughtta be proud of his National Guard experience, like thousands of others around the country are —
CHUNG: And —
DUBYA: I was in the National Guard.
CHUNG: You were in the —
DUBYA: I flew —
CHUNG: — National Guard?
DUBYA: I flew fighters in the Texas Air National Guard, of which I am very proud.
CHUNG: Now, the problem, though, would be is if indeed he made several phone calls, or some people made phone calls on his behalf to get him into the National Guard. Did that ever, I mean, did that happen to you? Were you —
DUBYA: No, I don't think so. But, uhh, in those days, people were goin' into the service, all different branches, and people — if you wanted to go into the National Guard, I guess sometimes people made calls. I don't see anything wrong with the kind — matter of fact, I'm glad he served this country. And serving in the National Guard is serving in the mili — they probably shouldda called up the National Guard up in those days. Maybe we'd have done better in Vietnam.
Even in 1988, in this interview at the Republican Party National Convention, Dubya's dodges the question, while also managing to sneak in a backhanded compliment to the troops that actually fought in Vietnam, by suggesting that the U.S. could have done better with Dan Quayle and himself over there. Not to mention he couldn't help interrupting Connie Chung at every opportunity. New Orleans, Louisiana, Aug. 17, 1988
