Bush speaks in "defence".

Bush stands up to critics

"You can't rely on a madman — and he was a madman — to make rational decisions with regard to war and peace," Bush said. "I'm dealing with a world in which we have been struck by terrorists with airplanes. The most solemn responsibility of any president is to keep this country safe. The man was a threat. And we dealt with him."

The president also said during his hour on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he won't alter his positions or his direct approach, despite what host Tim Russert called a growing number of independent voters shown by exit polling after Democratic primaries to be "angry" with Bush.

"I'm not going to change. I'm not going to change my view because of polls. That's not my nature," Bush said.
