Quotes - Repeat Offender (If It Feels Good)
 
"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

If It Feels Good
This repeat offense features Dubya rehashing a favorite concept of his, that of individual responsibility being more important than just feeling good. Often the concept is applied to suggest that parents are required to love their children. Sometimes the concept gets applied to completely unrelated things, too.
