“It will be all slice and dice, divide and conquer, break the country into little pieces and pick up as many as you can.

He means to gather in and hold onto all the pieces he needs, and turn them into a jagged, jangly coalition that will win it for him in November …” – Peggy Noonan @ WSJ Online on the Obama campaign
“Our country’s facing some major economic and fiscal challenges,”…..”And, yet, here’s the president wasting time on a fake fight to try to gain his own re-election.” – Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on the President’s tactics regarding the student loan debt
“It is hard to sneak around and do what you want,” …. “I have done it a couple of times. But you know one fantasy I have, and the Secret Service they keep looking at me because they think I might actually do it, is to walk right out the front door and just keep walking.” – First Lady Michelle Obama letting it slip that she’s probably had her fill of life in the White House
“Mr. Reid’s determination to keep a budget off the floor is part of a deliberate strategy to shield his members from tough votes and electoral risk – at the expense of duty, law and the American people.” – Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) on the REAL reason Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats have failed in their duties.
