by: Lou Brighton
"The U.S.S. George H. W. Bush is a great thing in my life. It's amazing. A great honor."
"It's no exaggeration to say that the undecideds could go one way or another."
"I think in defeat you grope for things that are happy, and it's hard."
"I was offered a job on Wall Street by my uncle. But I wanted to get out. Make-it-on-my-own kinda thing."
"I can't ever remember sitting around and saying, 'gosh let's hurry up and get these debates going, that'll win it for me.' Nope."
"I think I'd be a better president because I was in combat."
"I have survivor's curiosity, I guess."
"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."
"Debates, I hate."
"I am not one who - who flamboyantly believes in throwing a lot of words around."
"Losing is tough."
"You have to understand that people that are hurting are going to criticize."
"It's much worse to read criticism about your son than yourself."
"You know I vowed when I became President not to talk about the loneliest toughest job in the world and I didn't."
"But let me tell you, this gender thing is history. You're looking at a guy who sat down with Margaret Thatcher across the table and talked about serious issues."
"The glory of being a carrier pilot has certainly worn off."
"I hope my own children never have to fight a war."
"It's a very good question, very direct, and I'm not going to answer it."
"Ageing's alright, better than the alternative, which is not being here."
"I'm a conservative, but I'm not a nut about it."
