Quotes of the Morning

“If anybody has got any information inside our administration or outside our administration, it would be helpful if they came forward with the information so we can find out whether or not these allegations are true and get on about the business.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, September 30, 2003

“If anybody has got any information inside our government or outside our government who leaked, you ought to take it to the Justice Department so we can find out the leaker.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, October 6, 2003

“Q Scott, earlier this week you told us that neither Karl Rove, Elliot Abrams nor Lewis Libby disclosed any classified information with regard to the leak. I wondered if you could tell us more specifically whether any of them told any reporter that Valerie Plame worked for the CIA?
MR. McCLELLAN: Those individuals -- I talked -- I spoke with those individuals, as I pointed out, and those individuals assured me they were not involved in this. And that's where it stands.
Q So none of them told any reporter that Valerie Plame worked for the CIA?
MR. McCLELLAN: They assured me that they were not involved in this.”
-Press Gaggle with Scott McClellan, October 10, 2003

"QUESTION: Wilson now believes that the person who did this was Karl Rove . . . Did Karl Rove tell that . . .
McCLELLAN: I haven't heard that. That's just totally ridiculous. But we've already addressed this issue. If I could find out who anonymous people were, I would. I just said, it's totally ridiculous.
QUESTION: But did Karl Rove do it?
McCLELLAN: I said, it's totally ridiculous."
-Press Gaggle with Scott McClellan, September 16, 2003

“No one wants to get to the bottom of this matter more than the President of the United States. If someone leaked classified information, the President wants to know. If someone in this administration leaked classified information, they will no longer be a part of this administration, because that's not the way this White House operates.”
-White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, October 7, 2003

"Now you know that this is all a big set up for the next one, right?"

"Republicans mounted an aggressive and coordinated defense of Karl Rove yesterday, contending that the White House's top political adviser did nothing improper or illegal when he discussed a covert CIA official with a reporter.
With a growing number of Democrats calling for Rove's resignation, the Republican National Committee and congressional Republicans sought to discredit Democratic critics and knock down allegations of possible criminal activity."
-Washington Post, July 13, 2005

"We shouldn't forget that one of the reasons that they are calling for Rove's resignation is because the President stated that anyone responsible for leaking classified information would be fired.. There is really no avoiding the fact that, knowingly or otherwise, Rove did exactly that."

“One of my political heroes, the eighteenth-century British statesman William Wilberforce, argued that hypocrisy can often be a social good.”
-Rick Santorum, It Takes a Family

“See? If you can’t avoid sounding like a hypocrite, make hypocrisy a good thing.”
