“I have asked him to fight two fronts in the war on terror in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as transform our military. . . . I’m pleased with the progress we’re making. . . . I do” see him staying until the end of the president’s term.”

—George W. Bush, before the election

“Hunt asked me the question one week before the campaign, and basically it was, are you going to do something about Rumsfeld and the Vice President? And my answer was, they’re going to stay on. And the reason why is I didn’t want to inject a major decision about this war in the final days of a campaign. And so the only way to answer that question and to get you on to another question was to give you that answer.”

—George W. Bush, after the election, on how much he thinks voters should have a say in the war. Reminds me of another Republican who said:

“I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its own people. The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves.”

—Henry Kissinger
