This Week In Quotes: April 16 – April 21

The problem isn’t that things are collapsing. It’s that not enough things are collapsing. General Motors, AIG, and the government of California have committed enough errors to merit immediate extinction, but there they still are. Yet the political establishment continues to argue that the market needs to be prevented from delivering rough justice to sinners. — Tim Cavanaugh

These are the typical kind of scare tactics that (the New Jersey teacher’s union) involve themselves in. Scaring students in the classroom, scaring parents with the notes home in the bookbags, and the mandatory ‘Project Democracy Homework’ asking your parents about what they’re going to do in the school board election, and reporting back to your teachers union representatives, using the students like drug mules to carry information back to the classroom, is reprehensible. — Chris Christie

We’re here now to understand the frustration of the teabaggers, and the people that are angry, uh – because many times when you’re angry you’re . . . uh . . . rational abilities are compromised, and you get mad at the wrong party and the wrong thing or whoever is the President… — John Conyers

What’s curious about the left’s current obsession with Timothy McVeigh is that it proves that — despite a frantic search for 15 years — liberals have come across no better evidence of burgeoning “right-wing extremist” violence than a drug-taking, self-described “agnostic” who was thrown out of the Michigan Militia and who proclaimed, “Science is my religion.” That sounds more like Bill Maher than Rush Limbaugh. — Ann Coulter

(Bill Clinton) is the president who pardoned and released a bunch of Puerto Rican terrorists on his last week in office. The FALN gang. He also pardoned the Weather Underground terrorists — and he’s now lecturing us on violence that hasn’t happened, a peaceful tea party movement. We cannot even say “Islamic” and “terrorists” in the same sentence! We cannot associate radical Islam with terrorism but the president can go out and Obama can go out and try to associate the tea party — genuine, peace-loving, middle-American citizens of this country — with future acts of terrorism? The tea parties, you know why they’re hated? I’ll tell you why they’re hated. If you’re a member of a tea party, if you participated in one yesterday, why you’re hated, why you’re feared: This regime and the Clintons, everybody else knows that all you want to do is defend what’s left of this country and try to rebuild it. — Rush Limbaugh

There are two ways for a liberal Democrat to react to America’s ingrained distrust of government. He can sneak up on the problem, controlling deficits as he increases targeted spending programs that will prove popular. This is the post-1994 Bill Clinton approach. Or he can try to shock the system, creating a flood of spending that can never be turned back. This is the Obama approach. — Rich Lowry

I would hope that our leaders in Washington, D.C., understand we like to be a dominant superpower. I don’t understand a world view where we have to question whether we like it or not that America is powerful. — Sarah Palin

We’re on the brink of a world in which the wealthiest nations, from Canada to Norway to Japan, can barely project meaningful force to their own borders while the nickel ‘n’ dime basket-cases go nuclear. — Mark Steyn

If (Obama’s) wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back? — Tom Tancredo

The political left claims to love racial diversity, but it bitterly opposes such diversity on the political right. — James Taranto

I’m the guy that’s gonna walk up…and say one simple thing to Nancy Pelosi, “Gimmie that Damn gavel. — Allen West
