Stealng from Table Talk
This bit of brilliance comes from poster Susie Dow:
From Krugman: "Advocates of privatization almost always pretend that all we have to do is borrow a bit of money up front, and then the system will become self-sustaining."
"Iraq has the capacity to pay for itself."--Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas
"The reconstruction of Iraq will largely pay for itself."--Deputy Secretary of Defence Paul Wolfowitz
"The United States is committed to helping Iraq recover from the conflict, but Iraq will not require sustained aid." --Mitchell Daniels Jr.
"Any military presence, should it be necessary, will be temporary and intended to promote security and elimination of weapons of mass destruction; the delivery of humanitarian aid; and the conditions for the reconstruction of Iraq."--GW Bush
