The quote of the week is one of my favorites so far. It is from President George Bush and reaffirms all I have believed that he stood for.
I will let the quote speak for itself. Source.
"During the darkest days of Iraq, people came to me and said, 'You're creating incredible political difficulties for us,'" the current president said as his term draws to a close. "And I said, 'Oh, really? What do you suggest I do?' And some suggested retreat, pull out of Iraq.
"But I had faith that freedom exists in people's souls and therefore, if given a chance, democracy and Iraqi-style democracy could survive and work," the president said. "I didn't compromise that principle for the sake of trying to, you know, bail out my political party."
For this willingness to stand by his beliefs and to place his ideals above political gain, I give President George Walker Bush the proud American Eagle.
