George W. Bush Quotations

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister

Peruse numerous, notable quotations by the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush...

  1. "A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it."

  2. "After the chaos and carnage of September 11th, it is not enough to serve our enemies with legal papers."
    ~ State of the Union Address, January 2004

  3. "America is a Nation with a mission - and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace - a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman."
    ~ State of the Union Address, January 2004

  4. "America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our country."

  5. "America will never run... And we will always be grateful that liberty has found such brave defenders."

  6. "America is a friend to the people of Iraq. Our demands are directed only at the regime that enslaves them and threatens us. When these demands are met, the first and greatest benefit will come to Iraqi men, women and children."

  7. "America must not ignore the threat gathering against us. Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final proof, the smoking gun that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud."

  8. "Americans are a free people, who know that freedom is the right of every person and the future of every nation. The liberty we prize is not America's gift to the world; it is God's gift to humanity."

  9. "Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward, and freedom will be defended."
    ~ Barksdale Air Force Base, Los Angeles, September 11, 2001

  10. "Grief and tragedy and hatred are only for a time. Goodness, remembrance and love have no end."

  11. "History is moving, and it will tend toward hope, or tend toward tragedy."

  12. "Home is important. It's important to have a home."

  13. "I admit it, I am not one of the great linguists."

  14. "I believe a marriage is between a man and a woman."

  15. "I believe that God has planted in every heart the desire to live in freedom."

  16. "I firmly believe the death tax is good for people from all walks of life all throughout our society."

  17. "I have opinions of my own, strong opinions, but I don't always agree with them."

  18. "I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."

  19. "I know how hard it is to put food on your family."

  20. "If America shows weakness and uncertainty, the world will drift toward tragedy. That will not happen on my watch."

  21. "In cells and camps, terrorists are plotting further destruction and building new bases for their war against civilization. And our greatest fear is that terrorists will find a shortcut to their mad ambitions when an outlaw regime supplies them with the technologies to kill on a massive scale. In one place, in one regime, we find all these dangers in their most lethal and aggressive forms. . . . Saddam Hussein's regime is a grave and gathering danger."
    ~ Address to United Nations, New York, September 12, 2002

  22. "It is time for us to win the first war of the 21st century."

  25. "It's very important for folks to understand that when there's more trade, there's more commerce."

  26. "The folks who conducted to act on our country on September 11th made a big mistake. They underestimated America. They underestimated our resolve, our determination, our love for freedom. They misunderestimated the fact that we love a neighbor in need. They misunderestimated the compassion of our country. I think they misunderestimated the will and determination of the Commander-in-Chief, too."
    ~ Washington, September 26, 2001

    ~ Comparing himself to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of California

  38. "We come to Iraq with respect for its citizens, for their great civilization and for the religious faiths they practice. We have no ambition in Iraq, except to remove a threat and restore control of that country to its own people."
