Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Cedric Richmond, Katie Porter, Nicolle Wallace, and more.

We’re Shocked — Shocked!

“I don’t wanna contain China.” —Joe Biden

Hot Air

“The only existential threat humanity faces — even more frightening than a nuclear war — is global warming.” —Joe Biden

Grand Delusions

“I’m very inspired by the master class of the last two and a half years. And I mean it — I mean, master class in terms of delivering results. And those results are demonstrable.” —California Governor Gavin Newsom

“The Republicans are a one-trick pony talking about the president’s age. That’s all they talk about. … But we have to go out and talk about the accomplishments just as much as they talk about lies and misdirection and red herrings. We have to be solely focused on what not only this president and vice president but what this Congress has done, the Democratic Senate and the Democratic House when we had it. And I think that that’s going to prove to be a winning formula once again for all Democrats and for President Biden and … Vice President Harris.” —Biden campaign co-chair Cedric Richmond

“About the president’s age — voters will see his vigor. Voters will see his accomplishments.” —Cedric Richmond

“President Biden has done a terrific job on the economy. … The truth is Joe Biden has a terrific story to tell on the economy.” —Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-CA)

“I think the American people, most of all, want a leader who actually gets things done, and that is what Joe Biden has accomplished.” —Kamala Harris

“We see that the work that this president is doing, the economic policies that he’s put forward, is actually helping.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

Pot Calling the Kettle Black

“It’s a good moment to go to the country with this bigger argument about the Republican Party … as the largest anti-democratic force on the planet.” —MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace

Friendly Fire

“Joe Biden’s like that grandpa that you love, that you believe in, you owe a lot, but you start to wonder, you know, would you give this grandpa a high-stress job for six more years, or would you want something else for him?” —CNN’s Van Jones

For the Record

“The fact that Joe Biden’s paper-thin, basement-dwelling presidential campaign is rolling the dice with ‘Bidenomics’ as its go-to message, as we approach the heart of the 2024 campaign cycle, can be explained by one truth: There is simply nothing else for him to run on. … They will ask you not to believe your own lying eyes — to believe that the turd sandwich they are offering up is actually a tasty filet mignon. You just have to squint hard enough!” —Josh Hammer

Re: The Left

“Those on the Left want to delegitimize the [Supreme] Court itself — which is why they only care about ethics as they pertain to the Court’s conservative majority. And make no mistake: It’s not ethics leftists are worried about. It’s power. If they can get away with removing a Republican justice for taking a fishing trip 15 years ago, they’ll do it.” —Brian Mark Weber

“For Biden and his allies … what kind of automobiles we drive is not a practical question but almost a theological one. … Electric vehicles should be considered a nice, promising addition to the variety of the car market, not a quasi-holy obligation to be pursued at all costs.” —Rich Lowry

Food for Thought

“One of two things explain the continuous reckless behavior of wayward son Hunter Biden: One, he is either still on drugs or so suffers from past addiction that he has lost all common sense and judgment, and simply cannot control his behavior. Or, two, Hunter is an embittered, angry son. … That is, Hunter is not going to take the fall.” —Victor Davis Hanson
