I’m not much different from Andrew Cuomo. I probably agree with him on 98% of the issues. — Chris Christie
“Libertarians and pot — first of all … this is why people think libertarians are pussies,” Coulter said. “We’re living in a country that is 70-percent socialist. The government takes 60 percent of your money. They are taking …

This Week In Quotes: Feb 8 – Feb 14

Every single segregationist in the Senate was a Democrat. Only one of them ever became a Republican: Strom Thurmond.
The rest remained not only Democrats, but quite liberal Democrats. These included such liberal luminaries as Harry Byrd, Robert Byrd, Allen Ellender, Albert Gore Sr., J. William Fulbright, Walter F. George, Russell Long and Richard Russell.
Fulbright was Bill Clinton’s mentor. Gore was “Al Jazeera” Gore’s father. Sam Ervin headed Nixon’s impeachment committee. The segregationists who were in the Senate in the ’50s were rabid Joe McCarthy opponents. In the ’60s, …

This Week In Quotes: Feb 1 – Feb 7

Every person in the world with a healthy (by which I mean “not self-loathing”) ego naturally over-values his own talents and virtues and naturally under-values — and even denigrates — talents and virtues he doesn’t possess. The first things smart kids teach themselves in fifth grade is that athelticism is overrated, and the first thing the non-academically-inclined kids teach themselves is that “people smarts” are more important than “book smarts.” — Ace, Ace Of Spades HQ
And not only are Republicans governing more than half the country, they are objectively doing …

I don’t do the gay guys man. I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah. — 49ers CB Chris Culliver
Well, let’s start with a specific question on a vote, regarding designating the Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. You recall, because you were there, there were 22 senators who voted against that. The effort against it — the main point made …

This Week In Quotes: Jan 18 – Jan 24
  25 Jan 2013     12:01 am      John Hawkins

Only liberals are cheered on by the media to let their ideological freak flags fly. When liberals offer “advice” (or “analysis”) to conservatives, it’s always the same:
1. We must compromise.
2. We must concede the general outline of the liberal agenda.
3. We must buckle under — For our survival!
And what bothers us at this point isn’t that this is unfair; it is, but we’re used to it.
We’re just sick to death of being f*cking lied to every f*cking day by organizations which, although claiming to have the mission of truth, are …

This Week In Quotes (Double Edition): Jan 4 – Jan 17
  18 Jan 2013     6:36 am      John Hawkins

It occurred to me, after the Sandy Hook murders, that blaming guns is a secular substitute for blaming the devil. People find it too challenging to figure out why a human being would do this terrible thing and they latch on to the idea that the gun made it happen. Suicide presents a similar challenge, and one way to fathom it is to say: It was the gun. Isn’t it like saying the devil made him do it? The gun/the devil is a great go-to answer, freeing you from wracking …

Spread Your Legs, You’re Gonna Be Frisked. — Joe Biden to Heidi Heitkamp
Go f*** yourself. — John Boehner to Harry Reid
Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it. — Andrew Cuomo
Savers are getting ripped off. Interest rates are near zero, yet the inflation rate as of October 2012 was 2.2 percent, which means real interest rates are negative 2 percent, so savings are being diluted by 2 percent a year. — Andy …

The president will have a decision to make. He can call on the Senate Democrats to pass our bill, or he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in American history. — John Boehner
I’m not leaving here to be an advocate for the Republican party. — Jim DeMint
I’m not suggesting by any stretch that if we had prayer in schools regularly as we once did that this wouldn’t have happened. But, we’ve created an atmosphere in this country where they only time you want to invoke God’s name is …

I got a new movie coming out ‘Django Unchained’. And in the movie I got to wear chains, how whack is that. But don’t be worried about it because in the movie I get out of the chains. I get free.

In 1960, the percentage of the economically active 18-to-64 population receiving disability benefits was 0.65%. In 2010, it was 5.6%. — Michael Barone
Whites are 76 percent of the electorate over the age of 30 and only 58 percent of the electorate under 30. Obama won the “youth vote” because it is the knife’s edge of a demographic shift, not because he offered the kids free tuition and contraception (which they don’t need because it’s hard to have sex when you’re living with your parents at 27). — Ann Coulter
“It’s a …

This Week In Quotes: Double Edition (Nov 16 – Nov 29)
  30 Nov 2012     8:35 am      John Hawkins

He’s correct when he notes how indignantly and angrily and dismissively the press responds to criticisms about their obvious liberal bias.
I think of it like this: If you tell someone who’s not an alcoholic that he’s drinking too much, he’ll take an interest in your statement. He might be incredulous, but he’ll ask things like, “Do you really think I’m drinking too much? Have I gotten out of hand?” Your allegation might come as a surprise to him, and he might doubt you, but he’d probably be curious to find …

Will the Millennials stay Democratic? The baby boomers cast equal numbers of votes for George McGovern and Richard Nixon in 1972, while their elders favored Nixon by nearly 2-1. But this year, boomers (now age 45 to 64) backed Romney. Youthful political attitudes don’t always endure. — Michael Barone
Almost certainly, Obamacare will fail. And then, as always, it will be replaced by something even further left. — Charles C. W. Cooke
Once upon a time, when civic society flourished in Britain, it was uncontroversial to observe that to demur at government …

“When you (Obama) act like that, when you blame other people and when you use profane language, and when you act like you’re a 10-year-old, sometimes as in the debates, I don’t think that independent voters and undecided voters are really moved by that. — Jeb Bush
(Joseph Lowery), who gave the benediction at the January 2009 inauguration of President Barack Obama, told the audience of up to 300 African-Americans “that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he …

She goes to Washington, D.C., it’s a little bit like one of those dogs, ‘fetch,’”. She goes to Washington, D.C., and get all of these taxes and red tape and bureaucracy and executive orders and agencies and brings all of this stuff and dumps it on us in Missouri. It seems to me that she’s got it just backwards. What we should be doing is taking the common sense we see in Missouri and taking that to Washington, D.C., and blessing them with more solutions instead of more problems. — …

This Week In Quotes: October 5 – 18 (Double Edition)
  19 Oct 2012     4:19 am      John Hawkins

Governor Romney’s argument is, we’re not fixed, so fire him and put me in. It is true we’re not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said in the debate, I had so much hope four years ago and I don’t now, I thought he was going to cry. Because he knows that it’s not fixed. — Bill Clinton
Professor (Krugman), can I ask you? You have mischaracterized and you have lied about every position and every particular of the Ryan plan on Medicare, from the …

This Week In Quotes: Sept 28 — Oct 4
  5 Oct 2012     4:29 am      John Hawkins

Irony: Pam Gellar’s ad is “demeaning,” it is asserted, because it implies that violent, intolerant Salafists are “savage.” Her ad states something like, “In a struggle between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.”
Now, the MTA says she can’t run that ad because some people will be unable to restrain themselves from committing acts of violence and mayhem.
Which people?
The savages? — James Carville on the 1st Romney/Obama debate
“The real story is that our social safety net was supposed to be like one of those, ‘Take a Penny, …

The stuff they do on hard wood, it blows my mind. — Joe Biden
The bottom line: Historically speaking, this president is in weaker shape than any postwar incumbent who went on to victory, with the possible exception of Harry Truman; he is enjoying a convention bounce later in the cycle than any incumbent in the postwar era; and if he manages to win, it will probably be via a true squeaker, with plenty of twists and turns to come. — Jay Cost
That’s why the Democrats are dropping the blacks and …

11 year later in the war on terror, Obama has turned ‘let’s roll’ into let’s apologize. — Erick Erickson
We know less about Senator Obama than about any prospective president in American history. His uplifting rhetoric is empty, as Hillary Clinton helplessly protests. His career bears no trace of his own character, not an article for the Harvard Law Review he edited, or a single piece of legislation. He appears to be an empty vessel filled with the wishful thinking of those around him. — David Goldman
Again, examine the logic — …

This Week In Quotes: Aug 31 – Sept 6

Obama, 42 months into his term, has overseen a net loss of 300,000 jobs. He has yet to pass a balanced budget; our debt has increased 51 percent — from $10.6 trillion to more than $16 trillion. U.S. gross domestic product annual growth is 1.7 percent. Unemployment exceeds 8 percent. More than 17 percent of those who want to work full time are either not working at all or are working part time.
How does this compare?
When President Ronald Reagan was 42 months into his first term, 3.8 million new net …

30) “Self esteem comes from achievements. Not from lax standards and false praise.” — Condi Rice
29) “(My father) stood behind a bar in the back of the room all those years, so one day I could stand behind a podium in the front of a room. That journey, from behind that bar to behind this podium, goes to the essence of the American miracle — that we’re exceptional not because we have more rich people here. We’re special because dreams that are impossible anywhere else, come true here.” — Marco …
