Quotes - Repeat Offender (Therapy Won't Work)
 
"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

Therapy Won't Work
This repeat offense features Dubya goading anyone who would question his approach to handling terrorists. In Dubya's universe, the antithesis of his approach would be to offer the terrorists (and in one instance, Saddam Hussein) therapy. I can't help but suspect that this bizarre concept is meant to imply something about the Democratic Party. Enjoy the show.

  1. They probably thought that we were so selfish and self-absorbed and materialistic that after they hit us, we would try to understand them take a step back, and maybe get them some therapy.

  5. My most important job is to protect American life, to protect innocent life. I mention that, because you've got to know something about these people we fight. Unlike us, they don't value life.

And therapy won't work. (Oct. 22, 2002)
  6. See, we're on alert. We understand the realities. We remember and we're not forgetting what took place. We saw what happened in Indonesia. We understand the people we're dealing with.

  7. It's a different kind of war. In the old days, you could count the number of tanks destroyed or ships that were sunk or airplanes shot out of the air and you say you're making progress. This is a war where the leaders hide in a cave, or they kind of hide in a dark corner of one of these cities around the world and then they send youngsters to there suicidal deaths. They don't care about innocent life. They're cold-blooded killers. And, therefore, the best thing for us to do is to get them on the run, to hunt them down and to bring them to justice, which is exactly what is happening. I want you to know that therapy isn't going to work. (Oct. 24, 2002)

That's what we have to do. See, therapy isn't going to work. That's not going to convince them.
