Bush's 16 Words

Apparently, there is a lot of fuss over President Bush's "16 Words". What 16 words? I'm not positive, but maybe it was one of these:

"A surplus means there will be money left over. Otherwise, it wouldn't be called a surplus."
- Kalamazoo, MI 10/27/2000

"I mean, there needs to be a wholesale effort against racial profiling, which is illiterate children."
- Second presidential debate, Oct. 11, 2000

"We cannot let terriers (terriers?) and rogue nations hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile.''
- 09/09/00 (ed. note: don't laugh, I was once chased by a vicious terrier. It's about time we use this nation's resources to prevent it happening again)

"I hope we get to the bottom of the answer. It's what I'm interested to know."
- On what happened in negotiations between the Justice Department and Elián González's Miami relatives, as quoted by the Associated Press, April 26, 2000

"I am mindful not only of preserving executive powers for myself, but for predecessors as well."
- Washington, D.C., Jan. 29, 2001

Clearly there is nothing to justify the media's blatant over-reaction!
