Voice: The President will be down in a minute. Anyone know what he wants to hear? George W. Bush: See, people gotta understand that when the Iraqis stand up, we'll stand down. In other words, we'll stand down when the Iraqis stand up. Karl Rove: It's a great way of putting it, sir. Direct, unambiguous - very Trumanesque! Man: I'm going to have to disagree with Karl, sir.

Man: I disagree - it's brilliant.
