The Horse's Mouth

Or the donkey's arse? You decide. I've just been browsing through the George W. Bush quotes at Wikiquote. We should have heeded these warning signs long ago:
A dictatorship would be a lot easier... So long as I'm the dictator. (1998)

There ought to be limits to freedom. (1999)

If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier... [Bush chuckles, audience laughs] ...just so long as I'm the dictator [more laughter]. (2000)

A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it. (2001)
And of course:
Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is.
But that was Kosovo, and that was Clinton's baby.

"Why should I care about North Korea?"
