......Bush faces the press......Pull quotes......

"That's why I'm having this press conference — to tell you what's on my mind."

On Iraq:

"If I didn't believe we had a plan for victory, I'd pull our troops out of harm's way."

"A democracy in Iraq is going to affect reformers in a part of the world that is desparate for reform....The people have spoken and they want democracy. Otherwise, they wouldn't have participated (in the recent elections). Liberty's universal. People desire to be free."

On his staff, which has been under fire in the press:

"These are good, decent, hard-working people."

On taxes:

"This is the way Washington works. We raise taxes then we find new ways to spend."

On gay marriage:

"I believe society's interests are met by saying marriage is between a man and a woman."

On Democrats, the midterm elections and national surveillance:

"They ought to say, 'Vote for me. We're not going to have a terrorist surveillance program any more.'"
