You can frustrate yourself with The Washington Post's top quotes (bashing mostly Republican candidates, of course, and the indefensible Rep. Anthony Weiner of NY), written by liberal Chris Cillizza, or you can amuse yourself with mine. As always, your choice is the best choice – and - you don’t need big government to decide this one for you!
#11 – Mar. 29, 2011 - “The Tea Party is pulling Boehner too far over to the right and so far over that there is no more fruitful negotiations,” Senator Charles Schumer. The truth is that the Republicans have done their job and proposed multiple pieces of legislation. The Democrats are obstructionist, stubborn, and are unwilling to negotiate with them.
#10 - Jan. 19, 2011 - “They say it's a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels," - Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), no relation to the author. "You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it.” I guess so. If the liberals keep telling us the government takeover of health care is a lie, Steve, maybe some people will believe them!
#9 - Oct. 18, 2011 - "…We hope he [Mohammar Ghaddafi] can be captured or killed soon, so you don't have to fear him any longer. Secretary Hillary Clinton. Ghaddafi died two days later!
#8 – Mar. 31, 2011 - “I'm tired of reading the Constitution and all the silly things we’ve done for the last 13 weeks." - Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA). The reading McDermott spoke of began during the new Congress (after the 2010 elections) and Rep. Giffords (D-AZ) participated in them prior to being shot.
#7 - Sep. 19, 2011 – This is not class warfare…” - President Obama. Sure it’s not!
#6 - Dec. 25, 2011 – “Divided government…doesn’t work anymore…because you have a new crop of Tea Party House Republicans…” – CBS Correspondent Nancy Cordes. Good thing the Mainstream Media is objective!
#5 - Feb. 5, 2011 - “Europe needs to wake up to what is happening in our own countries,” he said. “We have to get to the root of the problem.” - British PM David Cameron spoke about multiculturalism in Europe and in his own country, and how it doesn’t promote national unity. This serves as a warning to America as well.
#4 - Dec. 6, 2011 – “So … why do so many Americans want the big government to run things when they can't run them? They just can't do it!” Bill O’Reilly to Charles Krauthammer on The O’Reilly Factor on FOX.
#3 - Apr. 17, 2011 - "If you target them [stopping the mortgage deduction] on the most fortunate Americans, they can afford to take a little bit larger share of the burden. They can afford to do that." - Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary, on This Week with Christiane Amanpour. But, how does he know who can afford what? Who is he to decide?
#2 – Mar. 25, 2011 "This is the only country where it's legal to be 'illegal.'” Jeff "Skunk" Baxter on Red Eye.
And, now my favorite quote of 2011:
#1 - Feb. 15, 2011 - "Liberals don't care about blacks, they don't care about women, they don't care about gays. They care about destroying the family so that you have one loyalty. And that is to the state." - Ann Coulter.
Have Fun - and a Responsible and a Happy New Year to all!!
See you in 2012!
