In May of 2009, Barack Obama made a “joke” at White House Correspondents Dinner. He said about those in attendance: “Most of you covered me (pause)… All of you voted for me.” Mildly amusing if it weren’t true. Not only do they vote for Obama, they are allied with Obama. They are his public relations… Read more »

Mark Steyn: “The definition of a ‘nano-second, is the time between a mass shooting and some guy from the left blaming it on talk radio, or Sarah Palin, or Fox News.’ “
I am sitting here slowly draining an adult beverage as I write this. This day began horribly with the shooting in Aurora Colorado that thus far has resulted in 12 deaths and 59 wounded. Then it was made even worse by the utterly demented opining of Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos that the shooting could be linked the Tea Party.
Joy Behar, on The View, discussing the Dream Act and making some illegal immigrants legal: “But what about the kids who were born here?”
Marco Rubio: “Well, the kids who are born here are U.S. citizens.” Maybe it is just me, but I laughed when I heard this.
President Obama: “I hear folks running around calling this class warfare, this is not class warfare—let me tell you something: asking a billionaire to pay at least as much as his secretary, that’s just common sense.”
Joe Biden to Nancy Pelosi: “There’s not a single, solitary thing on our agenda that would have gotten done without your leadership. Those decisions you made, the risk you took, the losses we incurred, really did save this country.”
Jay Carney: “The President…spends a relatively small amount of time campaigning.”
Senate majority leader Harry Reid: “In spite of the conservative obstructionism, we’ve been able to get a lot of good things done. [According to congressional scholar Norman] Ornstein said it was the most productive Congress in the last 75 years.”
First Lady Michelle Obama: “I guess it’s more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman. But that’s been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced. That I’m some angry black woman.”
Oprah Winfrey on Barack Obama: “I think he is, uh, a masterful leader and I think that what it takes to be able to do that on a daily basis and to stand up in a world where everybody is open to attacking you all the time, very hard job…I’m proud of him.”
First lady Michelle Obama to her husband: “You had BBQ? You didn’t tell me you had BBQ.”
President Obama: “Too many children can no longer expect to join the middle class, the president said, no matter if they work hard and play by the rules.” It is difficult to determine if these are his exact words. They are attributed to him, but without quotes. However, what this means is, what he has done so far for Americans has not worked.
Democrat Congresswoman Donna Edwards to Occupy D.C. people, as part of a chant: “It’s not fair, it’s not right; It’s time for us to occupy America.”
Occupy D.C. protestor leading a chant: “I just rode the elevator.”
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: “I think it’s really important to know that President Obama was a job creator from day one. Now, was the ditch that we were in so deep that when you’re talking to people and they still don’t have a job, that that’s any consolation to them? No. But I’ll tell you this, if President Obama and the House congressional Democrats had not acted, we would be at 15 percent unemployment. Again, no consolation to those without a job, but an important point to make.”
