the west wing meme∞ eight speeches [2/8]

“There’s an old saying: ‘Those who speak, don’t know; and those who know, don’t speak.’ I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I know that by and large the press doesn’t care who really knows what as long as they’ve got a quote. Last Friday, we had our Week Ahead meeting in the Roosevelt Room. Some of you were there, most of you weren’t, but I’m talking to all of you now. Bruno Gianelli and I were leading a discussion about whether or not the President should stop in Kansas on his way back from the West Coast, and I remarked that the Vice President is polling better than the President right now in the plain states and that if the President gets re-elected it’s going to be on the Vice President’s coattails. That remark made its way to a White House reporter. …We’re a group, we’re a team. From the President and Leo on through, we’re a team. We win together, we lose together, we celebrate and we mourn together. And defeats are softened and victories sweetened because we did them together. And if you don’t like this team then there’s the door. It’s great to be in the know. It’s great to have the scoop, to have the skinny, to be able to go to a reporter and say, ‘I know something you don’t know’. And so the press become your constituents and you sell out the team… So, an item will appear in the paper tomorrow, and it will be embarrassing to me and embarrassing to the president. I’m not going to have a witch hunt, I’m not going to huff and puff. I’m not going to take anyone’s head off. I’m simply going to say this: you’re my guys, and I’m yours. And there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you.”
