Quotes - Repeat Offender (Drapes)
"In my line of work you gotta keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kinda catapult the propaganda." - Dubya, May 24, 2005

This repeat offense dates from the 2006 election season, when, in the face of certain doom for the Republicans in Congress, Dubya decided to rally the troops by accusing the media and Democrats as being so presumptuous about victory that Democrats had already started picking out drapes for their offices in Washington, D.C. The last one provides a nice sense of closure.

  1. The Democrats have made a lot of predictions. Matter of fact, I think they may be measuring the drapes. If their electoral predictions are as reliable as their economic predictions, November 7th is going to be a good day for the Republicans. (Oct. 24, 2006)
  2. I understand here in Washington people have already determined the outcome of the election, like it's over even before the people actually start heading voting. But that's not what I see when I'm on the campaign trail. Yes, we've got some people dancing in the end zone here in Washington, D.C. They've got them measuring their drapes. They're going over to the Capitol, and saying, my new office looks beautiful, I think I'm going to have this size drape there, or this color. (Oct. 25, 2006)
  3. I know the other side is already dancing in the end zone, except they haven't made the end zone yet. They're up there in Washington already kind of picking out their offices and measuring the drapes. (Oct. 26, 2006)
  4. I understand people here in Washington have already determined the outcome of the elections. As I said in my press conference the other day, I've seen it before where people start measuring the drapes in their new offices before the vote has been counted in other words, they're taking the people's vote for granted. (Oct. 27, 2006)
  5. Election Day is 10 days away, and we're going to sprint to the finish line. I understand you've probably been paying attention to the pundits in Washington, D.C. They think the election is already over. As a matter of fact, some of them in Washington are already measuring the drapes for their new offices. (Oct. 28, 2006)
  6. DUBYA: We're driving toward victory. I know up in Washington they've already decided the outcome of the election.
    AUDIENCE: Booo!

    AUDIENCE: Booo!
    DUBYA: The same thing happened in 2004, you might remember. In 2004, the movers never showed up. And they're not going to show up in 2006. (Oct. 31, 2006)
  7. It's interesting what's happening in Washington, however. Some of them are already measuring the drapes for their new offices. See, they think this election is over. They don't understand that the people of Montana haven't voted yet. (Nov. 2, 2006)
  8. You know, it's amazing what happens in Washington. Some of them have already begun to measure for new drapes. People are already deciding how this election is going to turn out before the people of Iowa or anywhere else have shown up to vote. (Nov. 3, 2006)
  9. I told Congresswoman Pelosi that I look forward to working with her and her colleagues to find common ground in the next two years. As the majority party in the House of Representatives, they recognize that in their new role they now have greater responsibilities. And in my first act of bipartisan outreach since the election, I shared with her the names of some Republican interior decorators who can help her pick out the new drapes in her new offices. (Nov. 8, 2006)
