“He is not the kind of man to worry about his legacy. I mean, I doubt he’s thought about it at all.”

“I'm going to work hard. I'm going to sprint to the finish. And we can get a lot done.
And you're talking about legacy. Here, I - I know - look, everybody's trying to write the history of this administration even before it's over. I'm reading about George Washington still.
My attitude is if they're still analyzing number one, 43 ought not to worry about it, and just do what he think is right, and make the tough choices necessary.
And it's going to be a tough battle.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, December 20, 2006

-Associated Press, January 14, 2007

“I hear the voices, and I read the front page, and I know the speculation. But I'm the decider, and I decide what is best.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, April 18, 2006

“He is bold in his vision and merciful at heart.”

“I’m not a revengeful person.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, January 14, 2007

“And that’s good, because otherwise we would have to look at his behavior as borderline psychopathic. Still, this was all for the moral cause of liberating Iraq. Petty revenge had nothing to do with it.”

“President Bush leveled harsh criticism Thursday at the Senate on homeland security issues, but he revised his stump speech to make clear ‘there are fine senators from both parties who care deeply about our country.’
And, in discussing the threat posed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, Bush said: ‘After all, this is the guy who tried to kill my dad.’”
-CNN, September 27, 2002
