Quotes of the Morning: Staying the Course, Part Deux

“Well, listen, we’ve never been stay the course, George. We have been – we will complete the mission, we will do our job and complete the goal, but we’re constantly adjusting tactics, constantly.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush on “This Week”, October 22, 2006

“Yes! Fearless Leader finally clears up an issue that has been constantly lied about in the liberal press. He clearly and decisively states that he has NEVER been ‘stay the course’. This Administration has always been flexible regarding what to do in Iraq. It is just the darned liberal media and the Democrats (and probably Bill Clinton) that have been spreading these vicious lies.”

“We’re not going to lose in Iraq. As a matter of fact, we will win in Iraq so long as we stay the course.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, July 11, 2006

"This conflict is a long way from over. It's going to be a battle that will last for a very long time. It is absolutely essential that we stay the course."
-Vice-President Richard ‘Dick’ Cheney, July 21, 2006

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
-Inigo Montoya

“I think the thing you do, number one is, you bring to justice those who are guilty of breaking laws. And certainly this is not a government that condones rape, murder, or the abuse of human rights. The second thing you do is you stay the course..”
-White House Spokesman Tony Snow, July 10, 2006

“Oddly enough Tony Snow did not choke to death while trying to say that.. Apparently working for the White House can subdue one’s gag reflex. Still, while Fearless Leader may have been somewhat incorrect in saying that he was never ‘stay the course’, it is apparent that now he is ready to make some changes to our tactics in Iraq.”

“HANNITY: A lot of debate has no emerged over the phrase ‘stay the course,’ and what that actually means. ‘Well, the President is backing away from staying the course.’
RUMSFELD: Aww, that’s nonsense.
HANNITY: He’s not backing away from staying the course?
RUMSFELD: Of course not. The concern was that it gave opponents the chance to say, ‘Well, he’s not willing to make adjustments,’ and of course, just the opposite is true.”
-Interview with Sean Hannity and Donald Rumsfeld, October 24, 2006

“Hmm.. The Rummy is saying that we actually *are* staying the course. How can we possibly find out the answer to this vexing conundrum?””

“U.S. officials said Tuesday Iraq’s government has agreed to develop a timeline for progress by the end of the year, and Iraqi forces should be able to take full control of security in the country in the next 12 to 18 months with ‘some level’ of American support.

Gen. George Casey, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, also said he felt the United States should continue to focus on drawing down the number of American forces in the country, adding that he would not hesitate to ask for more troops if he felt they were necessary.”
-Associated Press, October 24, 2006

“Obviously a change of course. Instead of our current tactics of trying to reduce troop levels in Iraq by using the ‘stand down as they stand up’ theory of boosting Iraq’s army, now we will try to do.. um.. exactly the same thing, but with a theoretical timeline that will be issued ‘by the end of the year’ (aka: after the November elections) and a new spint.”

“He accepted everything. The past was alterable. The past never had been altered. Oceania was at war with Eastasia. Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia. Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford were guilty of the crimes they were charged with. He had never seen the photograph that disproved their guilt. It had never existed, he had invented it. He remembered remembering contrary things, but those were false memories, products of selfdeception.”
-George Orwell, 1984
