So far, 7,881,788 people in 22 states have pulled the lever for any Republican primary hopeful. In 2008, those same 22 states delivered at least 8,401,502 votes for Republicans. (And probably many more: Popular-vote counts for 2008 were missing for Maine and Wyoming, and I threw out the 2008 Washington state number, which was improbably larger than 2012. I used Real Clear Politics numbers for 2008 and 2012.) — Tim Cavanaugh[4]

Most national “reporters” are so in bed with Democrats they want free birth control to keep themselves from getting pregnant. — Derek Hunter

But the American people know something about this president and his disdain for oil. The “fuel of the past,” he contemptuously calls it.

Now, here’s the sad thing. Lately, we have heard a lot of professional politicians, a lot of the folks who were running for a certain office, who shall go unnamed, they’ve been talking down new sources of energy. They dismiss wind power. They dismiss solar power. They make jokes about biofuels. They were against raising fuel standards. I guess they like gas guzzlers. They think that’s good for our future. We’re trying to move towards the future. They want to be stuck in the past! If some of these folks were around when Columbus set sail, they probably must have been founding members of the flat earth society. They would not believe that the world was round! — Barack Obama[8]

On February 29, Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club, penned a post celebrating the 100th closure of a coal-fueled power plant: Chicago’s Crawford plant. He also boasts that the group’s efforts have prevented 166 new coal-fueled power plants. — Marita Noon[9]
