President Bush on drilling in the ANWR:
“ANWR can produce 600,000 barrels of oil a day for the next 40 years. What difference does 600,000 barrels a day make? Well, that happens to be exactly the amount we import from Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.”

Frankly, Mr. President, we’d rather see Hussein out of power. That way, you can leave the ANWR alone.
