CHRIS WALLACE (Fox News): Mr. President, what are the chances that we're either in a recession or headed for one?
DUBYA: I think the experts will tell you we're not in a recession, and they will tell you that there's a lot of uncertainty. And therefore, the question is what do you do about it.
Even Chris Wallace probably wondered which experts would claim that with a straight face, White House, Feb. 10, 2008
Most Americans feel overtaxed, and I promise you the Democrat Party is going to field a candidate who says I'm going to raise your tax.
Note that he uses tax rather than taxes, Democrat rather than Democratic. Regarding the latter word choice, this certainly isn't the first time he's gone there. White House, Feb. 10, 2008
What's going to matter is not the past, but the future when it comes to campaigns and if the Democrat Party feels like they can win an election by focusing on me, I think they'll be making a huge tactical mistake.
Now he's on a roll, White House, Feb. 10, 2008
I think we're going to get a good bipartisan bill and so I applaud those Democrats. I'm not going after those Democrats. But there is a big part of the Democrat Party that is against giving our intelligence officers the tools necessary to protect America.
The rolling continues... White House, Feb. 10, 2008
Now, if you're a worker who earns 35 dollars a year over your lifetime, and this system were in effect where you could put 4 percent of your payroll taxes in a personal account, and you started at age 20, by the time you retired, your personal account would grow to 250,000 dollars. That's compounding rate of interest.
One of the things that I find so attractive about enabling people to save some of their own money is the sense of participation in the system, I guess is one way to say it. It's — as you said, it makes you proud. But it's your asset base. And your little guy, 13-year-old son — some day, if you choose, it becomes a part of his asset base. And the capacity to pass property from one generation to the next is more than just passing a piece of land — which is a fabulous story, by the way.
Raleigh, North Carolina, Feb. 10, 2005
MRS. GODFREY: I showed up today on behalf of my friends and my family, and about 80 employees at Godfrey Lumber. It's a small, family-owned business started by my late father-in-law, Woodrow Wilson Godfrey. You would have loved him. It's actually —
DUBYA: Woodrow Wilson?
MRS. GODFREY: Woodrow Wilson.
MRS. GODFREY: His mother was a staunch Democrat.
DUBYA: Yes. Guy is a heck of a businessman, though.
Wow, even though his mother was a Democrat? Astounding. Raleigh, North Carolina, Feb. 10, 2005
There was wars on other continents, but we were safe.
Commenting in his typically strained fashion on what America was like before 9/11, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 2003
So today I ask you to challenge your listeners to love somebody just like they'd like to be loved themselves, to remind them that one person can make a difference in somebody's life, to encourage them, to mentor, to encourage them to start a ministry, which will find the children of those who are incarsinated and love them.
By which he means "incarcerated", although the White House web site just whitewashed over Dubya's version of the word in the transcript, Nashville, Tennessee, Feb. 10, 2003
We face a continuing threat of terrorist networks that hate the very thought of people being able to live in freedom. They hate the thought of the fact that in this great country, we can worship the Almighty God the way we see fit. And what probably makes him even angrier is we're not going to change.
Does "him" stand for the Almighty God or the terrorist networks? Nashville, Tennessee, Feb. 10, 2003
I want to thank you, Sherry Jean, for representing all the decent people, whether they be foster moms or dads — and by the way, being a foster parent is an incredibly important part of our society — or whether being a mentor, or whether being somebody volunteering their time for after-school programs to help save lives, particularly lives of our children.
Nashville, Tennessee, Feb. 10, 2003
In this country and in Australia people believe that everybody has got worth, everybody counts, that everybody is equal in the eyes of the Almighty. So the issue is not only peace, the issue is freedom and liberty. I made it clear in my State of the Union — and the people of Australia must understand this — I don't believe liberty is America's gift to the world. I believe it is God's gift to humanity.
Dubya branches out from preaching to America to preaching to Australia, too, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 2003
It's so inspirational to see your courage, as well as to see the great works of our Lord in your heart.
Speaking on behalf of all Americans in a manner that is only consistent with the religious beliefs of some, Nashville, Tennessee, Feb. 10, 2003
I particularly want to thank the four folks who have recovered from homelessness and addiction to alcohol and drugs.
Apparently being homeless is a sickness, Nashville, Tennessee, Feb. 10, 2003
I'm the person in this country that hugs the mothers and the widows if their son or husband dies.
And what happens if someone's daughter or wife dies, Dubya, you know, because women serve in the military, too? Nashville, Tennessee, Feb. 10, 2003
A reformer with results is a conservative who has had compassionate results in the state of Texas.
