Rush Limbaugh: “I’m a guy on the radio. What can I do? I can’t raise anybody’s taxes. I can’t send anybody off to war. I can’t force anybody to go out and buy a $50 light bulb. I can’t make anybody give up their car and buy an electric car. I can’t make anybody do anything, and yet I have to be destroyed.”
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.”
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.
Vice President Joe Biden: “All in all we’re going to be creating somewhere between 100[,000] and 200,000 jobs next month, I predict.”
Senate Majority leader Harry Reid: “I am encouraged that the private sector is continuing to grow and add jobs.”
Jemu Greene: “Slow growth is still growth overall.”
News Before it Happens
This prediction has been made by others (like Dr. John in Flopping Aces): the coming election, from the Democrat controlled media, is going to be all about race. Anything a Republican says about Obama is racist or code words for racism.
Easy call: Israel is not going back to its 1967 borders.
Reporter Justin Farmer: “I took in the man himself, this man, President Barack Obama. Regardless of one’s political leanings, there’s no doubt this is a gifted and complex man. Think about what he ponders in any given day?”
Justin Farmer: “I admit as he was answering one of my questions, I did look carefully at his face. (Our chairs were oddly placed almost uncomfortably close.) I pondered the responsibility, the challenges this one man bears.”
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on what would happen if we did not raise the debt limit: “We’d have to stop making payments to our seniors — Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. We’d have to stop paying veterans’ benefits. We’d have to stop paying all the other payments on all the other things the government does. And then we would risk default on our interest payments. If we did that, we’d tip the U.S. economy and the world economy back into recession, depression.” None of which is true, of course.
We need a program for government waste, fraud and abuse of whistle-blowers. If someone is doing a job which is essentially worthless, and he is able to show this, give him 6 months salary and transfer him to a different job (and end that job). If someone can make a case that an entire department is a waste of taxpayers’ money, give him 2 years salary, lay off the entire department, and end all funding to that department sector.
Barack Obama: “We contribute to programs like Medicare and Social Security, which guarantee us health care and a measure of basic income after a lifetime of hard work; unemployment insurance, which protects us against unexpected job loss; and Medicaid, which provides care for millions of seniors in nursing homes, poor children, and those with disabilities. We are a better country because of these commitments. I’ll go further – we would not be a great country without those commitments.”
Obama: “I don’t need another tax cut.” The President lives rent-free with no out-of-pocket costs to be paid toward food, transportation, staff, vacations.
