“You know when I was young. Of course I feel young–I feel like I was 30…35…39… Somebody said, Are you young? I said, I think I’m young. I was stopping in the final months of the campaign, four stops, five stops, seven stops–speeches, speeches, in front of twenty-five, thirty thousand people… fifteen, nineteen thousand. I feel young– I think we’re all so young. When I was young we were always winning things in this country. We’d win with trade, we’d win with wars– at a certain age I remembered hearing from one of my instructors, the United States has never lost a war. And then, after that, it’s like we haven’t won anything. You know the old expression, to the victor belongs the spoils? You remember I always say, keep the oil. I wasn’t a fan of Iraq. I didn’t want to go into Iraq. But I will tell you, when we were in, we got out wrong. And I always said, in addition to that, keep the oil. ”
