Mr. Vice President and Lynne, thank you for joining us. Vice President Cheney has been a fabulous Vice President of the United States.

He's asking me about the checkpoints I drove through and my impression about what it was like to drive through checkpoints. I can understand why the Palestinians are frustrated driving through checkpoints. I can also understand that until confidence is gained on both sides, why the Israelis would want there to be a sense of security. In other words, they don't want a state on their border from which attacks would be launched. I can understand that. Any reasonable person can understand that.
What Dubya doesn't understand is that the checkpoints are not locations that every Palestinian can drive through. Travel is restricted. If all Palestinians were permitted to drive through the checkpoints, there probably wouldn't be the frustration that Dubya claims to understand. Ramallah, West Bank, Jan. 10, 2008

You took an oath to defend our flag and our freedom, and you kept that oath underseas and under fire.
The speechwriter perhaps gave him "overseas" but Dubya gave us "underseas", Washington, D.C., Jan. 10, 2006

To serve the economic needs of our country, we must also reform our immigration laws. Reform must begin by confronting a basic fact of life and economics. Some of the jobs being generated in America's growing economy are jobs American citizens are not filling. This past week, I proposed a new temporary worker program that would match willing foreign workers with willing American employers, when no Americans can be found to fill the jobs. If an American employer is offering a job that American citizens are not willing to take, we ought to welcome into our country a person who will fill that job.
I'm confused. Is Dubya coming out in support of creating jobs that Americans wouldn't want to do? Shouldn't we find out why Americans are "unwilling" to do them? Could it have something to do with low pay and long hours? Perhaps I'm being too cynical here... President's Radio Address, Jan. 10, 2004
