"Let's get back to you being good at talking to God but not so good at listening."

"So what's your point?"

"George, communication is a two way street, but you never stick around for the second part, where you listen and maybe learn something. If you did, you never would have invaded Iraq."

"So then what would I have done?"

"You would have spent those trillions of dollars on rebuilding the infrastructure of this country instead of blowing up theirs. You could have revamped the educational and transportation systems, funded research to find nonpolluting alternative fuels while creating millions of good paying jobs beneficial for everyone."

"I'm your conscience."

"So my conscience is a liberal democrat?"

"George, this has nothing to do with partisan labels or political agendas. The Boss doesn't make such petty distinctions. It's simply about doing the right thing at the right time, which means doing the greatest good for the largest number of people while doing the least harm possible."

"I thought that's what I did by getting rid of Saddam. He was a monster."

"I want to be in the loop, George. Think of all those endless hours you spent consulting with Rice, Cheney and Rummy. How about consulting with me for a change?"

"A cabinet of one."
