There's Always Plenty of Time

Posted by Tim Tagaris

There's always plenty of time to answer questions that never seem to get resolved. Always plenty of time to hold people accountable that end up getting medals. I'll leave the heavy lifting to the good folks over at Think Progress (one of the best blogs out there), but here is just a taste.

On George Bush being AWOL during Vietnam - (White House Press Briefing)

Let me finish the question there that you asked. There is going to be plenty of time to talk about the campaign. Right now this President is going to remain focused on the great challenges that we are working to meet.

On Iraq - (A Presidential Press Conference)

A free and peaceful Iraq is part of protecting America. Because I told you before, and I truly believe this, this will be a transforming event in a part of the world where hatred and violence are bred; a part of a world that breeds resentment.

And, you know, look, we're going to an election; there's going to be plenty of time for politics. And people can debate all they want. I'm going to do my job. That's what I'm going to do. I'm going to do my job to make this country safer, and I believe we're making good progress toward that objective.

On Valerie Plame - (Scott McLellan - July 11, 2005)

MR. McCLELLAN: Terry, I appreciate your question. I think your question is being asked relating to some reports that are in reference to an ongoing criminal investigation. The criminal investigation that you reference is something that continues at this point. And as I've previously stated, while that investigation is ongoing, the White House is not going to comment on it.

On Katrina - (Director Michael Chertoff)

Chertoff defended the job of FEMA Director Michael Brown and declined to get into a discussion about whether the government moved quickly and forcefully enough to deal with the catastrophe, saying there would be plenty of time for a review.

He did complain about problems getting information from local officials.

On Nominating a Supreme Court successor to Justice O'Connor and the issues that surround it - (McLellan Press Gaggle)

Q Scott, you talked -- the President talked about culture of life being very important to him, and Justice O'Connor has disappointed people who expressed similar views in the years. Is he -- how important is that going to be in picking her successor?

MR. McCLELLAN: Again, there will be plenty of time to talk about the process and things of that nature, but today is a day to honor Justice O'Connor. I think the President talked about the type of individual that he is looking for. He described it in general terms --

I don't know how anyone in the "Liberal Media" lets this stand after hearing it time and time again, on issues after issue after issue. Like I said, this is just the smallest of samples. Go to the White House homepage and run a search on the words "plenty of time;" that should give you the most basic of starting points.

Great point, Tim. And there will be plenty of time later to talk about how we always say there will be plenty of time to talk about things later, but today our top priority has to be talking about how we'll talk about talking about things later later. The president has already been very clear about being clear about this later.
