Nancy Pelosi: “He’s (Bush) saying something to the effect of we’re so glad to welcome you here, congratulations and I know you’ll probably have some different things to say about what is going on-which is correct. But, as he was saying this, he was fading and this other thing was happening to me. My chair was getting crowded in,” said Pelosi. “I swear this happened, never happened before, it never happened since. My chair was getting crowded in and I couldn’t figure out what it was, it was like this. And then I realized Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, you name it, they were all in that chair, they were. More than I named and I could hear them say: `At last we have a seat at the table.’ And then they were gone.”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.: “I don’t think the burden should be on me. The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn’t he release his tax returns?” Harry Reid, incidentally, has not released any tax returns.

Democrat Jan Schakowsky: “Republicans now have gone from this rooting against the economy to outright sabotage of the economy.”
MSNBC‘s Chris Hayes: “What are the things we should be doing if we waved a magic wand, made Paul Krugman dictator for a period of time?” The liberal crowd cheered.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Republicans who criticize President Obama‘s support for the failed solar firm Solyndra: “[Republicans are] the ones who say they’re risk takers. Now, all of a sudden, they’re saying, `Don’t take risks.’ ”
Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter defended President Obama‘s investment in green energy companies like Solyndra: “The president was making investments for the country, because he’s not going to cede an entire industry to China and India. And as a result the company – country is prospering.”
President Obama to the UAW in Detroit: “And five years from now when I’m not president anymore, I’ll buy [a Chevy Volt] and drive it myself.” GM has suspended the building of Volts this week.
A New York Times correction: “A previous version of this article misstated how many of the president’s proposals to reduce the country’s reliance on imported oil were new in his speech on Wednesday. None of them were, not one of them.”
He and Pelosi and Hoyer and Waxman and the rest of the execrable democrats.
Much has been made about Mitt Romney’s income tax rate and it’s all the same. Sure he’s done nothing illegal but shame on Romney for paying what he owes. It’s his fault. He’s hiding something.
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.”
