Your President Speaks!

Today in Washington, at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association meeting.

A Cattleman Can Spend Their Money

The reason I say that is there’s a fundamental debate in Washington, when you really get down to it, and the debate is who best to spend your money. And I believe a cattleman can spend their money better than the government can.

Ranch the Land?

If people are concerned about keeping land in the hands of the family rancher, the best way to do so is to get rid of the death tax for those who ranch the land, once and for all.

We Demand Increase for Equip!

I just put up a — submitted some ideas through our Secretary of Agriculture, Mike Johanns. I want to remind you in the bill we submitted to Congress we asked for a $17-billion increase in conservation spending over a 10-year period. That’s an increase over the last farm bill. That includes money for CRP, and a 30-percent increase for equip.

I Found A Moon Rock In My Nose!

To me, that says, is that when we have opportunities that are fair, we produce the kinds of goods and services people want to buy.

When I Grow Up I’m Going To Bovine University

Every time we break down a barrier to trade, it makes it more likely somebody who’s raising a cow will have an opportunity to sell that cow into a better market.

Paging Dr. Freud

I don’t know if you realize this or not, but jobs exported by — supported by exports pay wages that are 13 to 18 percent higher than the average.

Today’s Iteresting Fact

If you manufacture a good that is sold overseas, you’re making more money that somebody who’s not exporting. Isn’t that an interesting fact?

For Fair Playing Rules

I believe competition brings out the best in everybody. So I don’t mind competition, so long as the playing rules are fair.

That Is Agreements

And there’s a vital vote getting ready to come up in front of the — up to the Congress, and that is agreements that we have cut with Peru, Colombia and Panama.

What You Got To Do

Now, you got to compete; you got to grow some product that somebody wants.

Must Never Be Forgot

See, September the 11th was not only a day we were attacked, it is a day that our country must never forget, and the lessons of that day must never be forgot, that what happens overseas matters here at home.

Enable Them To Be Able

If we were to abandon this young democracy to chaos, it would embolden these extremists. It would enable them to be able to recruit more.

The Plan To Secure The Plan

In other words, I’ve sent reinforcements into Baghdad with a new commander, with a plan to help the Iraqis secure the plan, a plan that we believe will be successful.

What It Means

Now we’ve got a strategy of clear, hold — that’s what that means — and then using money to help reconstruct Iraq.

Offer Not Valid In New Orleans

A government of and by the people should be spending the people’s money to help rebuild their country.

Again With The Forgot

The lesson of September the 11th must not be forgot.

He’s Sic Again

Some call this civil war; others call it emergency [sic] — I call it pure evil.

    It’s no longer evil-doers we’re fighting, it’s ‘pure evil’. Just like you can’t fight terrorism because it’s a tactic, not an opponent you can’t fight ‘evil’. My 6th grade D&D group had more foreign policy savvy in 1981 than this President has 7 years into his term. The game isn’t only about fighting every orc and troll you meet – it’s about becoming strong enough and experienced enough so orcs and trolls aren’t a threat. We aren’t gaining experiece points or new spells by killing Sadr City teenagers and Anbar province malcontents.

    Dumb Question:
    If “I believe a cattleman can spend their money better than the government can.”
    -and if-
    “you got to compete; you got to grow some product that somebody wants.”
    Whyzit, by executive branch decree, we’re spending ungodly amounts of money in Iraq and can’t stop?????
    BTW – joejoejoe – can’t believe that you’re explaining foreign policy in terms of D&D – I’m shocked. But you’re absolutely right. ;-)

    Is the Shithead-in-Chief talking about Iraq–or the United States?

    “That includes money for CRP”
    We know that, Mr. Decider, but crissakes. We’ve already PAID for all of your crp.

    Apart from on conservation and equip, of course. Can’t trust cattlemen with equip.

  7. Nancy Schuldt says:

    Not that I am in any way endorsing ‘the decider’, but when he referred to “equip”, he was talking about the USDA’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program, known amongst those of us who have these grants, as “EQIP”. Funding EQIP is a good thing.

  8. Paul in LA says:

    Shouldn’t that be ‘Environmental Quality Underwear Incentives Program’?
    Acronyms that lack u’s after q’s help the terrorists (hide bombs in their underwear).

    I did not know that FLORIDA was overseas.
