What a Difference a President Makes
From the Doonesbury website's "Say What?" segment:
"I screwed up."I wish we had an Obama here. Instead, we have the Conservative Party of Canada who cling to the worst failures of their philosophy even as their incompetence makes headlines.
-- Barack Obama, February 3, 2009
"I wish you'd have given me this written question ahead of time so I could plan for it... I'm sure something will pop into my head here in the midst of this press conference, with all the pressure of trying to come up with answer, but it hadn't yet... You know I... I hope I... I don't want to sound like I have made no mistakes. I'm confident I have. I just haven't... You just put me under the spot here, and maybe I'm not as quick on my feet as I should be in coming up with one."
-- George W. Bush, August 13, 2004, when asked if he'd made any mistakes since September 11, 2001
