The Decider

Noted.: "THEY SAID WHAT? 'My job is a decision-making job. And as a result, I make a lot of decisions.... I delegate to good people. I always tell Condi Rice, 'I want to remind you, Madam Secretary, who has the PhD and who was the C student. And I want to remind you who the adviser is and who the President is.'... I got a lot of PhD types and smart people around me who come into the Oval Office and say, 'Mr. President, here's what's on my mind.' And I listen carefully to their advice. But having gathered the device [sic], I decide, you know, I say, 'This is what we're going to do.' And it's 'Yes, sir, Mr. President.' And then we get after it, implement policy.' --President George W. Bush to a crowd in Lancaster, Pa., October 3"
