If you call that a ‘redistribution of income’ – well, so be it. I don’t call it that. I call it just being fair. — Joe Biden
I’ve never seen anyone who is as amateurish in the conduct of his foreign relations as this president… It’s dumb and it’s what he’s done time and time again. He doesn’t seem to learn…”
“Netanyahu is a tough a guy. The fact of the matter is we’re showing our amateurishness every time we do this. And, this president can’t get it through his head that his actions have consequences outside what he thinks they might be…”
“He’s playing with fire here and he’s playing with dynamite and he doesn’t understand it. And, you’d think with almost two years in office he would understand it but he doesn’t. — Lawrence Eagleburger
One of the big failings of liberalism – and by “big,” I mean this isn’t just a turn-off to dedicated conservatives, I think it creeps out most middle-of-the-road people – is that liberals are very quick to abandon any discussion of whether their programs are effective, ineffective, or possibly damaging. They don’t stick with this analysis very long at all. They’re constantly distracted by something else. And the “something else” is almost always some tantalizing inspection of some ideological opponent’s unworthiness. — Morgan Freeberg
I don’t worry about the Constitution on (health care reform), by the way. — Democratic congressman Phil Hare
My fear is that the whole island (of Guam) will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize. — Hank Johnson
One of the main obstructions to meaningful action is “modern democracy”, he added. “Even the best democracies agree that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while. — James Lovelock
“I know how the ‘tea party’ people feel, the anger, venom and bile that many of them showed during the recent House vote on health-care reform. I know because I want to spit on them, take one of their ‘Obama Plan White Slavery’ signs and knock every racist and homophobic tooth out of their Cro-Magnon heads.” — The Washington Post’s Courtland Milloy
Well, keep it up boys, just keep it up, um except for one thing: you rat bastards are going to cause another Murrah federal building explosion, you are. And then – what is Beck – maybe at that point Beck will do the honorable thing and blow his brains out.
Maybe at that point, Limbaugh will do the honorable thing and just gobble up enough – enough Viagra that he becomes absolutely rigid and keels over dead.
Maybe then O’Reilly will just drink a vat of the poison he spews out on America every night and choke to death! Because that’s what’s gonna to happen, that’s what they are pushing these right-wing, nut case, fringe, militia jerk-wads to doing! — Mike Malloy
Obama promised young people that government unicorns would fly above their apartments dropping free iPods from the sky while delivering vanilla-scented welfare checks in recycled envelopes so that younger voters would never have to work another day in their coddled lives. But clearly that didn’t happen. — Jason Mattera
Imagine if somebody were to really sit down with Osama Bin Ladin and say, ‘listen man,what is it that you’re so angry at me about that you’re willing to have people strap bombs to themselves, or get inside get inside of airplanes and fly them into buildings.’ That would be the miracle if we can get, sit down and talk to our enemies and find a way for them to hear us. — Matthew Modine
Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD! — Sarah Palin
For states’ rights advocates, the Constitution is like a contract that is openly violated by one party with impunity. On paper, the states remain sovereign powers, while in reality the federal government appears able to dictate everything from the ingredients of school lunches to speed limits. Congress now routinely collects taxes in order to return the money to the states with conditions on their conforming to federal demands. — Jonathan Turley
