Tim Flannery, a zoologist and author of an acclaimed 2005 book on climate change, “The Weather Makers”: “If the world as a whole cut all emissions tomorrow the average temperature of the planet is not going to drop in several hundred years, perhaps as much as a thousand years because the system is overburdened with CO2 that has to be absorbed and that only happens slowly.”

Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg: “Planned Parenthood is under attack by Tea Party Republicans who have put their extremist ideology above women’s health… These people (referring to the pro-life advocates) don’t deserve the freedoms in the Constitution…but we’ll give it to them anyway.”

Barbara Boxer, who (eventually) vehemently opposed us going to war in Iraq, recently said of Obama going into Libya: “This is different; you’re facing a dictator who vowed…to destroy his own people.”

Bill Moyers: “{NPR is] independent reporting that toes neither party nor ideological line. We’ve heard no NPR reporter — not a one — advocating on the air for more government spending (or less), for the right of abortion (or against it), for or against gay marriage, or for or against either political party, especially compared to what we hear from Fox News and talk radio on all of these issues and more.

Ed Schultz posts op-ed entitled “Why I Support President Obama’s Decision to Invade Libya.” (Which we haven’t, by the way).

Dennis Kucinich about Obama;s no-fly zone in Libya: “I asked the question as to whether that was an impeachable offense; that’s different than actually calling for an impeachment or inducing a resolution, which I am not intending to do.”

Barney Frank about House republicans: “Even the bigots ain’t stupid.”

U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said Thursday that security on the southern U.S. border “is better now than it ever has been”

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL): “[Obama-care] is a matter of life or death. We’re one job loss away when you have a pre-existing condition from being uninsurable. And that’s – that’s unacceptable, and that’s what health care reform did for Americans.”

Louis Farrakhan has called President Obama “the first Jewish president.”

Lead speaker at UAW rally in Detroit: “In 2009, Bank of America made $4.4 million.”  He meant to say billion.

Ousted NPR CEO Vivian Schiller: “I will be back.“

From the Huffington Post: “The Huffington Post is committed to fostering a lively and often provocative debate about the issues of the day and encourages a wide range of voices from all perspectives to participate. Andrew Brietbart’s ad hominem attack on Van Jones in The Daily Caller – right down to calling him a “commie punk” and “a cop killer-supporting, racist, demagogic freak” – violates the tenets of debate and civil discourse we have strived for since the day we launched. As a result, we will no longer feature his posts on the front page.”

Liberals from the past:

Barack Obama, 2009: “In many ways, you can measure America’s bottom line by looking at Caterpillar’s bottom line”

Barack Obama, 2007: “But the fact of the matter is that when we don’t talk to the American people – we’re debating the most important foreign policy issues that we face, and the American people have a right to know. It is not just Washington insiders that – are part of the debate that has to take place with respect to how we’re going to shift our foreign policy. This is a seminal question.”

Obama, 2007: “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

Liberals making sense:

Anthony Weiner, requesting a waiver from Obamacare for his district: “We in New York already have hospitals, we already employ doctors and we employ nurses. We have a lot of uninsured people. . [Setting up] the exchanges is the one piece of the puzzle that would be difficult for us to do.  I’m just looking internally to whether the city can save money and have more control over its own destiny.”  Weiner was one of the big cheerleaders for Obamacare.


From Limbaugh’s show; presidential declarations of war:

ROOSEVELT:  December 7th, 1941, a date which will live in infamy.

REAGAN:  At seven o’clock this evening Eastern Time air and naval forces of the United States launched a series of strikes against the headquarters, terrorist facilities, and military assets that support Moammar Khadafy’s subversive activities.

BUSH 41:  Just two hours ago allied air forces began an attack on military targets in Iraq and Kuwait.

CLINTON:  Our mission will be limited, focused, and under the command of an American general.

BUSH 43:  My fellow citizens, at this hour, American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people, and to defend the world from grave danger.

OBAMA:  Hello, Rio de Janeiro! Alo! Cidade! Maravilhoso!


Robert Borosage on AOL/HuffPo: “Contrast that to the right-wing smear merchants, the modern day McCarthyites, that have gone into high gear to slime Van Jones. Jones has been a favorite target of Glenn Beck, Andrew Breitbart and many castigators on the right for over a year now. The most recent ad hominem slur from Breitbart was characteristically beyond the pale.  Van Jones is an extraordinary leader, so it isn’t surprising that the right has targeted him.”

Dana Loesch: “He’s a 9/11 truther who apparently believed our government murdered thousands of Americans – instead of terrorists. He supports cop-killing. He’s an admitted Marxist. He’s admitted to using the green movement as a ruse to destroy capitalism.  He’s not targeted because he’s an “extraordinary leader,” he’s targeted because his admitted goals are entirely antithetical to the Constitution. That Borosage believes Jones a great leader says a lot about Borosage’s own ideology and agenda.”

President Obama on Libya: “It’s in Our National Interest to Act”

Defense Secretary Gates: “No, It’s Not a Vital Interest for the United States.”

Check here for a whole bunch of things the Democrats said under Bush and what they are saying now:


Sarah Palin on Geraldine Ferraro: “When I had the honor of working alongside Geraldine on election night last year, we both discussed the role of women in politics and our excited expectation that someday that final glass ceiling would be shattered by the election of a woman president. She was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to public service as a teacher, prosecutor, Congresswoman, and Vice Presidential candidate. She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. The world will miss her. May she rest in peace and may her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women.”

Newt Gingrich: “Until you replace this president and until you have the Congress and the new president replace large parts of our bureaucracies, we’re going to continue to be dominated by a secular, anti-Christian and anti-Jewish elite, which is seeking to impose on us rules that make zero sense.”

Gingrich on Attorney General Eric Holder filing suit on behalf of a new Muslim teacher who wanted time off to go to Mecca: “it’s absurd.  It’s part of this desperation of our secular elites to do everything they can to prove they are not anti-Muslim.”

Reporter Scott Powers, when being confined in a  storage closet, during a Democratic fund-raiser, with a low-level staffer standing guard outside the door, “When I’d stick my head out, they’d say, ‘Not yet. We’ll let you know when you can come out.'”  I actually don’t know Powers’ political leanings.

Reporter Barbara Hollingsworth on global warming enthusiast Tim Flannery warning that it will be several hundred years or more before our carbon emission reduction will take effect: “A thousand years is a long time to wait for results.” I don’t know her politics either.

Ben Hur (comment on Jon Stewart not giving Charles Krauthammer his due): “Krauthammer writes his own material.”

Rush Limbaugh: “You think Obama cares about whether we can afford anything? If he cared about whether we could afford anything, we wouldn’t have Obamacare!”

Rush: “Drudge has a picture up of Muslims beating and stomping on an effigy of Obama in protest. So how’s that NASA Muslim outreach working out for the regime?”

Rush: “Unlike Iraq, we’re not seeing photos and video of innocent civilians bombed by our forces in Libya. There must be collateral damage. I wonder why they’re not showing it?”

Rush: “Ours is a world governed by the aggressive use of force, and liberals hate that. To them, this is a world governed by the aggressive use of speeches, but all the speeches in the world didn’t stop Khadafy.”

Rush: “We have a bunch of liberal Democrats demanding that Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize be withdrawn, and a bunch of leftists are saying, ‘Gosh, he’s no different than Bush.’ This is the final insult.”

Conservatives from the Past:

Ronald Reagan of Gadhafi: “I find he’s not only a barbarian but he’s flaky.”

Conservatives making no sense:

Presidential candidate Haley Barbour: “[Our country should] proceed in national policy as if global warming is actually happening.”
