A pandemic is a lot like a forest fire. If caught early it might be extinguished with limited damage.... A pandemic is unlike other natural disasters. Outbreaks can happen simultaneously in hundreds, or even thousands, of locations at the same time.
Dubya has it both ways in his discussion on pandemic influenza preparations, Bethesda, Maryland, Nov. 1, 2005

A pandemic is a lot like a forest fire. If caught early it might be extinguished with limited damage. If allowed to smolder undetected, it can grow to an inferno that spreads quickly beyond our ability to control it.
I wish Dubya would have explained the concept of "allowing" the so-called forest fire to smolder undetected. It can't be allowed (detected but permitted to continue) and undetected at the same time, can it? Seems like he's having it both ways again. Bethesda, Maryland, Nov. 1, 2005

Perhaps the most important reason to put me back in is so that Laura will be the First Lady for four more years. ...We were campaigning together tomorrow.

My opponent says that America must submit to what he has called a global test before we take action to defend ourselves. I'm not making that up. I heard it during one of the debates. As far as I can tell, my opponent's global test means America must get permission to defend our country.
Actually, he's kinda making it up... here is what Senator Kerry actually said: "No president, through all of American history, has ever ceded, and nor would I, the right to preempt in any way necessary to protect the United States of America.

Sioux City, Iowa, Nov. 1, 2004

Think how far Iraq has come from the days of torture chambers and mass graves, and the brutal reign of a barbaric tyrant.
Yes, now there are random beheadings, no rule of law, and tons of explosives in the hands of terrorists. It's like Club Med. Sioux City, Iowa, Nov. 1, 2004

You need to have you a governor in the great state of Mississippi who understands what it means to create an environment for job growth, who hurts when he hears people are working, and that man is Haley Barbour.
What makes this even funnier is that they spelled Haley Barbour's name wrong in the quote on the White House web site, Gulfport, Mississippi, Nov. 1, 2003

Millions of thousands of people millions of dollars and thousands of people millions of dollars aren't being invested and thousands of people aren't working.
It's neat, you can see the sentence take shape before your very eyes, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Nov. 1, 2002

These people don't have tanks. They don't have ships. They hide in caves. They send suiciders out.
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Nov. 1, 2002
