Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.
I know the human being and fish can co-exist peacefully.
It's a time of sorrow and sadness when we lose a loss of life.
One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures.
I had to abandon free market principles in order to save the free market system.
I would like to be remembered as a guy who had a set of priorities, and was willing to live by those priorities. In terms of accomplishments, my biggest accomplishment is that I kept the country safe amidst a real danger.
Saddam Hussein is a homicidal dictator who is addicted to weapons of mass destruction.
Today we affirm a new commitment to live out our nation's promise through civility, courage, compassion and character.
The men and women of Afghanistan are building a nation that is free, and proud, and fighting terror - and America is honored to be their friend.
I believe in the transformational power of liberty. I believe that the free Iraq is in this nation's interests. I believe a free Afghanistan is in this nation's interest.
So, I'm lying on the couch and Laura walks in and I say, 'Free at last,' and she says 'You're free all right, you're free to do the dishes.' So I say, 'You're talking to the former president, baby,' and she said, 'consider this your new domestic policy agenda.'
We know that dictators are quick to choose aggression, while free nations strive to resolve differences in peace.
The once all-powerful ruler of Iraq was found in a hole, and now sits in a prison cell.
The United States and our allies are determined: we refuse to live in the shadow of this ultimate danger.
We cannot let terrorists hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile.
The United States prefers that Iraq meet its obligations voluntarily, yet we are prepared for the alternative.
I'm hopeful. I know there is a lot of ambition in Washington, obviously. But I hope the ambitious realize that they are more likely to succeed with success as opposed to failure.
I believe the most solemn duty of the American president is to protect the American people. If America shows uncertainty and weakness in this decade, the world will drift toward tragedy. This will not happen on my watch.
I sent American troops to Iraq to make its people free, not to make them American. Iraqis will write their own history and find their own way.
I have zero desire, just so you know, to be in the limelight. I don't think it's good for the country to have a former president criticize his successor. You're not going to see me giving my opinions in the public arena, until I start selling my book. I'm going to emerge then submerge.
