"We will press and press and press to protect ourselves. And this stuff about how Iraq is causing the enemy -- whatever excuse they need, they have made up their mind to attack, and they grab on to things to kind of justify. But if it's not Iraq, it's Israel. If it's not Israel, it's the Crusades. If it's not the Crusades, it is the cartoon. I'm not kidding you. I'm not kidding you."
The people attending laughed, then one said: "If it's not the Crusades, it's the cartoon -- that's a good slogan," one of his guests suggests.
This is pretty darned amusing, too:
But Bush calls the war "a struggle of good versus evil," adding, "Maybe it's not nuanced enough for some of the thinkers and all that stuff -- that's fine. But that's exactly what a lot of people like me think."
Darned those thinkers! *shakes fist* If you think, the terrorists win!
And one last quote:
"Don't be writing -- don't write me down as hopelessly naive and trying to always put lipstick on the pig."
