Can we just help people get jobs who live here? We have so many problems in our country. To me, this is so basic. We obviously should be taking care of our own. We’re Americans. Like, why can’t we take care of Americans? And how did that get to be bad? Like, I’m trying to figure it out? How did it get to be bad that we should be thinking about the people who were here first before we start worrying about the people coming in? Tell me how the people coming in create jobs? — Jim Cramer[1]

“We are a nation of laws and not men. If we had a system where a president can pick and choose what laws to follow at utter whim … that is seriously dangerous.” — Ted Cruz[2]

I know the president. I know he cares about these troops. That’s basically what the secretary has said, so I’m glad he did that – I’m glad he maybe had second thoughts. And I can not say that was the situation always with President Bush. — Dem Rep. Elijah Cummings[3]

It’s the year I discovered prayer. It changed my life. And I didn’t think my life needed changing. — Matt Drudge[4]

When Harry Reid said, ‘This war is lost,’ it was one of the most disgraceful things I’ve ever heard a politician say. — Robert Gates[5]

Someone told me something about ‘pro-war,’ and I sat and thought about it for awhile, and I didn’t even know if that’s – is that a real term? Because, there’s nothing glorious about war. There’s nothing glorious about holding your friends in your arms and watching them die. — Marcus Luttrell[7]

There’s an AP story about Obamacare that has a statistic, and they downplay this. It’s at the end of the story. Folks, we all know that this Obamacare thing is a disaster, and it’s gonna get worse as the months go by. As of now, of the people that have signed up – and that’s even a floating number that nobody really has a good handle on – four out of five, every four out of five enrollees is getting a subsidy of one kind. There’s no way that this can sustain itself. It just can’t. — Rush Limbaugh[8]

Where I can act on my own without Congress, I’ m going to do so. — Barack Obama[9]

This is my clear and succinct message to white Americans. How long will it be before “you people” realize you have elevated someone to the office of president who abjectly despises you – not to mention his henchman Holder. Combined they are the most vile and disgusting racists – not you. — Allen West[10]

The omnibus budget deal slithering its way toward President Barack Obama’s desk for signing abandons the automatic spending cuts that resulted from an earlier fiscal compromise. Why was the sequester abandoned? Like the Gramm-Rudman Act a generation earlier, the sequester had to be stopped for one fundamental, undeniable, bipartisan reason. It worked. — Kevin Williamson[11]
