George W. Bush Quotes : pic 000233484
What I am against is quotas. I am against hard quotas, quotas they basically delineate based upon whatever. However they delineate, quotas, I think vulcanize society.

George W. Bush Quotes : pic 000265479
Today the Iraqi and Afghan people are on the path to democracy and freedom. The governments that are rising will pose no threat to others. Instead of harboring terrorists, they're fighting terrorist groups. And this progress is good for the long-term security of all of us. -- George W. Bush
George W. Bush Quotes : pic 000267970
Health care costs are on the rise because the consumers are not involved in the decision-making process. Most health care costs are covered by third parties.

George W. Bush Quotes : pic 000303806
We must show new energy in fighting back an old evil.

Bush
George W. Bush Quotes : pic 000305190

George W. Bush Quotes : pic 000313963
Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor.

George W. Bush Quotes : pic 000313966
The great tradition of America is one where people can worship the way they want to worship. And if they choose not to worship, they're just as patriotic as your neighbor.
