Every single week, liberals and conservatives say a lot of things. When a liberal says a particularly dumb thing, it is all but ignored by the Obama Media Complex; when conservative says an intelligent thing, it is all but ignored by the OMC. For this reason, I recommend that you send these columns to your moderate friends (and to liberals who seem to simply be unlearned). Week after week, I believe that what people actually say will eventually sink in.
WH Press Secretary Jay Carney: "The fact is that the balanced budget amendment would be, is basically an admission by Congress that they can't do anything, right? And that's not true, as [evidenced by] these discussions that we're engaged in right now. And it should not be true. And it's a shame if people actually believe that. So no, we don't support it."
President Obama: And I have tasked the men and women of NASA with an ambitious new mission: to break new boundaries in space exploration, ultimately sending Americans to Mars. I know they are up to the challenge - and I plan to be around to see it.
White House senior adviser David Pouffe: "The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers. People won't vote based on the unemployment rate, they're going to vote based on: `How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?'"
Bill Clinton on many states passing voter I.D. laws in order to reduce voter fraud: "I can't help thinking since we just celebrated the Fourth of July and we're supposed to be a country dedicated to liberty, that one of the most pervasive political movements going on outside Washington today is the disciplined, passionate, determined effort of Republican governors and legislators to keep most of you from voting next time. There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today."
White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer: "We cannot ask the middle-class and seniors to bear all the burden of higher costs and budget cuts. We need a balanced approach that asks the very wealthiest and special interests to pay their fair share as well, and we believe the American people agree."
Bill Maher: "If you can look at a crime where everything points to one answer and not see it, you're a dumbass. And if you can look at the deficit and not see that the problem is that the rich stopped paying taxes, you're a Republican."
Richard Cohen: The hallmark of a cult is to replace reason with feverish belief. This the GOP has done when it comes to the government's ability to stimulate the economy. History proves this works - it's how the Great Depression ended - but Republicans will not acknowledge it. As an aside, the stock market and unemployment rates were back to normal during Eisenhowers presidency.
Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel: "What would Jesus do this weekend [of debt-ceiling negotiations]? Or Moses. Or Allah. Or anyone else. I don't want this book (debt negotiations) closed without the clergy having an opportunity to forcefully express themselves as well as I know they can do."
New Black Panther Party's Malik Zulu Shabazz: We want the president to do better but he hasnt fired one shot at a white man yet. Everyone he shoots is black or brown.
Louis Farrakhan: If theyre successful at killing brother Kadaffy, this is not gonna be the end. This is the beginning of horrors, as you will see...all of you who love war will be drown in your own blood, as it is written, those wh olike to shed the flood of others, Allah will make drunk with your own blood, as sweet wine.
The Liberal Press:
Washington Postss Bob Woodward: "I'm not sure the United States has been looked at as the grown-up nation for a long time...You travel around the world a little bit, and, and there's, there's not even tough love for the United States"
Liberals from the past:
Even though Attorney General Eric Holder claims not to have known anything about Operation Fast and Furious (aka, Operation Gunrunner), he said this in 2009: "Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion. DHS is making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail."
