The greatest source of America's generosity is not our government; it's the good heart of the American people.

I equate freedom and peace. And I believe America, given its position in the world, must use our power to promote freedom.

George W Bush
All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: The United States will not ignore your oppression, or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.

Islam is a vibrant faith. Millions of our fellow citizens are Muslim. We respect the faith. We honor its traditions. Our enemy does not. Our enemy doesn't follow the great traditions of Islam. They've hijacked a great religion.

George W Bush
If you're asking me as the President, would I understand reality, I do.
George W Bush

I'm a patient man. And when I say I'm a patient man, I mean I'm a patient man.

George W Bush
We have one country, one Constitution and one future that binds us.
George W Bush

We're not into nation-building. We're into justice.

Iran aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror, while an unelected few repress the Iranian people's hope for freedom. The Iraqi regime has plotted to develop anthrax, and nerve gas, and nuclear weapons for over a decade. This is a regime that has already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens - leaving the bodies of mothers huddled over their dead children.

George W Bush
I fully understand some people don't believe it's possible for freedom and democracy to overcome this ideology of hatred. I understand that. I just happen to believe it is possible. And I believe it will happen.
