Author Quote
Keith Oberman You are promoting hate under the guise of a legitimate political debate about immigration. Mr. Romney, you might get your racist ways some day if you get elected and expel the people who you have hired to do your dirty work. If so, there will be one saving grace. There will be no one to pick up your poop after you.
Rick Perry There is a difference between being a venture capitalist and a vulture capitalist

United States Embassy in Egypt The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
Thomas Friedman Romney is pretending to be something he is not. He is renting the Republican party in order to fulfill his ambition of being President. The Republican party is renting Romney in order to fulfill its ambition of beating Barack Obama.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Paul Ryan gave a fact free speech.
Neil Newhouse We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.
Martin Amis One of Mitt Romney’s spokespeople said, “we will not be dictated to by the fact checkers”.

The Republicans may not compromise with the Democrats, but they are going to have to compromise with reality.
Will Durst Maybe it’s that silver spoon in his [Mitt Romney’s] mouth that keeps him from seeing why the middle class doesn’t pull itself up by its bootstraps, like he did when Daddy loaned him his first million dollars.
Newt Gingrich This is the classic fight between the moderate Republicans who try to get to the middle by compromise and the conservative Republicans who try to create a new middle by driving the left away.
