Democrat Jan Schakowsky: “Republicans now have gone from this rooting against the economy to outright sabotage of the economy.”
MSNBC‘s Chris Hayes: “What are the things we should be doing if we waved a magic wand, made Paul Krugman dictator for a period of time?” The liberal crowd cheered.
“Meet the Press” host David Gregory asked his panel “where civility has gone in our public discourse.” Incredibly, one panelist urged people to be more “mature” and not “poison the atmosphere.”
I say “incredibly” because this panelist was none other than the race-hustling, anti-Semitic “civil rights activist” and MSNBC talk show host, Al Sharpton. For some reason, Sharpton’s own struggles with civility never came up. Nor did any panelist behave so rudely as to bring up Sharpton’s role in one of the most hideous, disgusting and cynical uses of the race card this side of the O.J. Simpson case. And Sharpton, unlike Rush Limbaugh, refuses to apologize.
President Obama to the UAW in Detroit: “And five years from now when I’m not president anymore, I’ll buy [a Chevy Volt] and drive it myself.” GM has suspended the building of Volts this week.
A New York Times correction: “A previous version of this article misstated how many of the president’s proposals to reduce the country’s reliance on imported oil were new in his speech on Wednesday. None of them were, not one of them.”
President Obama, for about the 100th time: “We can’t go back to the policies that led to the recession.”
Nancy Pelosi: ” President Obama was a job creator by, on day one..”
President Obama: “The way I think about it is, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft and we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades. We need to get back on track.”
President Obama: “Instead of working to boost our economy, they’re out there spending time trying to defund Planned Parenthood and prevent millions of women from getting basic health care that they desperately need – pap smears and breast exams.”
President Obama on retaining the Hispanic vote: “I don’t think it requires us to go negative in the sense of us running a bunch of ads that are false, or character assassinations. We may just run clips of the Republican debates verbatim. We won’t even comment on them, we’ll just run those in a loop on Univision and Telemundo, and people can make up their own minds,”
President Obama: “I intend to do everything in my power right now to act on behalf of the American people with or without Congress. We can’t wait for Congress to do its job. So where they won’t act, I will.”
Al Gore: “We need to have an American spring, you know, the Arab spring. The non-violent part of it isn’t finished yet, but we need to have an American spring. A kind of an American Tahrir Square. Non-violent change where people from the grassroots get involved again. Not the, you know, not in the Tea Party style.” Just not real grass roots; just not grass roots movements that disagree with him.
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.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: “There’s no need to have a Democratic budget in my opinion. It would be foolish for us to do a budget at this stage.”
Ed Schultz: “You see, being from the south, you know what these code words are all about. To say something about food stamps is not about white folks, it’s about black folks. There’s no question about it.”
Herb Kohl: “A 401(k) savings account should not be used as a piggy bank.”
