O.J. Simpson, on the day of his acquittal on murder charges in 1995:
"When things have settled down a bit I will pursue as my primary goal in life the killer or killers who slaughtered Nicole and Mr. Goldman."
President Barack Obama, reading from a statement three days after an attempted terrorist bombing of a US airliner, as reported by Politico:
Obama vowed to track down those who were behind the terrorism plot, and said: "We will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable."
According to reports, Obama took no questions...after all, there is golf to be played....
I believe Obama is sincere. Well, at least as sincere as OJ was when he made the same statement all those years ago...
UPDATE: Wasn't joking about the golf thing:
A half-hour after President Obama vowed to catch the terrorists behind a plot to blow up a plane on Christmas, he arrived at 10:40 a.m. at the Luana Hills Country Club, where a golf course winds through a rain forest, the pool reports. The club is below inland cliffs and the towering Mt. Olomana.
