    And where are they proven or corroborated by someone who actually heard him say this and then went on record? For something this outrageous, I'd want to see something pretty solid. And Richard Sutherland sure ain't it.

      ...if my word isn't good enough for you for as you say "something this outrageous" just google it yourself. I trust google as a search engine a lot more than I do fact check dot org. I'm done. We're done. Enjoy the rest of your day.

        I Googled it, and found several "debunking" sites that classed the quote as spurious. Found one book that claimed, without footnotes or checkable attributions, that he had interviewed people who heard Bush say it. So, no, I have no particular reason to take your word for it. At best, you should stick a caution on your use of the quote.

        So, you're right—you're done. And now so am I.
        You, too, enjoy your day.
