Echoed of course in:


Governor Ritchie, many economists have stated that the tax cut, which  
is centrepiece of your economic agenda, could actually harm the  
economy. Is now really the time to cut taxes?


You bet it is. We need to cut taxes for one reason-- the American  
people know how to spend their money better than the federal  
government does.


Mr. President, your rebuttal.


There it is.

[on TV] That's the ten-word answer my staff's been looking for for  
two weeks. There it is. Ten-word answers can kill you in political  
campaigns. They're the tip of the sword. Here's my question: What are  
the next ten words of your answer? Your taxes are too high? So are  
mine. Give me the next ten words. How are we going to do it? Give me  
ten after that, I'll drop out of the race right now. Every once in a  
while... every once in a while, there's a day with an absolute right  
and an absolute wrong, but those days almost always include body  
counts. Other than that, there aren't very many un-nuanced moments in  
leading a country that's way too big for ten words.
