"What's wrong with being a boring kind of a guy?"

Barbara Bush
"It has been said by some cynic, maybe it was a former president, 
'If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.'  Well, we took
them literally-- that advice, as you know.  But I didn't need that 
because I have Barbara Bush"
                      GOP President George Bush, 1991

"Now, like, I'm President. It would be pretty hard for some 
drug guy to come into the White House and start offering it 
up, you know?...I bet if they did, I hope I would say, 
'Hey, get lost. We don't want any of that.'"\
George Bush, Sr., speaking to a group of students about drug abuse

"You cannot be president of the United States if you don't 
have faith. Remember Lincoln, going to his knees in times of 
trial and the Civil War and all that stuff. You can't be. 
And we are blessed. So don't feel sorry for — don't cry for me, 
Argentina. Message: I care."
George Bush, Sr., speaking to employees of an 
insurance company during the 1992 New Hampshire primary

"Please don't ask me to do that which I've just said I'm not 
going to do, because you're burning up time. The meter is 
running through the sand on you, and I am now filibustering."

New World Order
"My vision of a 'new world order' foresees a United Nations

"I'm the one who will not raise taxes. My oppenet says 
he'll raise them as a last resort, or a third resort. 
But when a politician talks like that, you know that's 
one resort he'll be checking into.  My opponet won't 
rule out raising taxes.  But I will. And the Congress 
will push me to raise taxes and I'll say, 'No.'  And 
they'll push, and I'll say, 'No.' And they'll push 
again, and I'll say to them: 
'Read my lips: No new taxes!' ''
George Bush

   President George Bush, during a campaign speech in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.

of words around."
George Bush, Sr.
