This week in quotes: September 27-October 3, 2013.
Few disagree that, in any national plebiscite, Obamacare would be buried in a landslide. Few disagree that if Obamacare were put to a vote of the Congress today, it would fail in both houses. Why, then, is it radical for the House to use its power of the purse to defund a program America does not want? — Pat Buchanan
Again, Reid and Obama do not want to ease the pain of the people. They want to intensify that pain, ratchet it up, maximize it, to put maximum pressure on and do maximum damage to the GOP. The Obama-Reid strategy is, in a word, sadistic. They are inflicting pain on fellow Americans — to break their political enemies. And they can only succeed in sustaining their Big Lie — that it is Republicans who want to keep the government shut down — because of a collaborationist press. — Pat Buchanan
A small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology about how our country should run and what we should do cannot get their way in a normal discourse and votes. Since they can’t get their way, they’re going to create this confusion and discourse and hope the public is so mixed up in who to blame for this that perhaps they’ll blame both sides. That is the path they see for taking over the government. It’s dangerous, very dangerous. … Every bit as dangerous as the break up and the Civil War.” — Tom Harkin
The Obama Administration is not only taking the unnecessary and egregious step of closing off open spaces and monuments – places without doors and gates that are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – but is selectively choosing where to apply this policy. It appears as though only the highly visible monuments and areas are being closed to the public – further proof that the Obama Administration is only playing politics and purposely choosing to make this shut down as painful as possible. Their actions are shameful and wrong. If this health care law is forced upon this country, the young men and women in this audience are the ones who are really going to pay the price,” Perry said to a small crowd outside the Bendix Diner in this New York City suburb. “And that, I will suggest to you, reaches to the point of being a felony toward them and their future. That is a criminal act, from my perspective, to put that type of burden on them, to mortgage their future like that. America cannot stand that. America cannot accept that. — House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings
This is a very dangerous aspect to our government. The fact that we have people who are willing to demonize the president of the United States because he’s from a different party. — Peter King
There have been many reports that have shown how climate models have vastly overestimated “warming.” For instance, a study in the journal Nature Climate Change “compared 117 climate predictions made in the 1990′s to the actual amount of warming” and 114 of those predictions overestimated the amount of warming. Other studies have found that various climate models used by the United Nations have “forecasted two times more global warming than actually occurred.” — Tony Lee
I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration. You lay one damn hand on one of those World War II vets at that memorial and I’ll bring half a million people to that damn memorial! You got that?! — Mark Levin
So when you were on the jihad against Americans’ access to health care, shutting down the parks wasn’t a problem. Shutting down NIH wasn’t a problem. — George Miller
President Obama, a couple of weeks ago when he was hell-bent on dropping bombs on Syria, he said America doesn’t do pinpricks. Well, we don’t do pinpricks, but sometimes we elect them. — Sarah Palin
If Harry Reid and the president want to keep the parks closed — I mean did you read the story today? Some idiot in government sent goons out there to set up barricades so they couldn’t see the monument. People had to spend hours setting up barricades where there are never barricades to prevent people from seeing the World War II monument because they’re trying to play a charade. — Rand Paul
What we’re not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their chest—we’re not going to do that. I believe the House Republicans are entirely responsible. — White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer
“If you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?,” Bash asked. “Why would we want to do that?” — Harry Reid
All the administration has to do is say, OK, if you’re in organized labor in this country, you’ve got your own exchange. Go do your deal. — Ed Schultz
China is now the second-biggest economy on the planet, but it has immense structural problems: As I’ve been saying for years, it will get old before it gets rich. Thanks to its grotesque “one-child” policy, it has the most male-heavy demographic cohort in history — no chicks and millions of guys who can’t get any action, which is not normally a recipe for social stability. Despite being extremely large, the country is resource-poor. — Mark Steyn
