"I will never apologize for the United States of America — I don’t care what the facts are.” George W Bush at a press conference introducing the Coalition of American Nationalities, 2nd August 1988
“If this were a dictatorship, it’d be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator.” George W Bush, CNN, 18th December 2000
It’s getting “easier” for all the wrong reasons.
