Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Jake Sullivan, Kamala Harris, Hakeem Jeffries, and more.

Useful Idiot

“The only long-term answer to peace in the region, to Israel’s security in the region, is a two-state solution. … I think since October 7th the need to work on that has only increased.” —National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan

Faux Pas

“This idea that somehow striking on Friday as opposed to Wednesday as opposed to Thursday makes any strategic difference has no basis in reality. … When you select a military target, timing matters.” —Jake Sullivan

The BIG Lies

“Whether it’s milk, eggs, used cars, airfares, we’ve actually seen cost reductions in some key consumer areas.” —Council of Economic Advisers Chair Jared Bernstein

“We have the best economy in the world. Inflation is coming down. … A little bit of corporate greed going on too.” —Joe Biden

“We’ve created a record 15 million new jobs.” —Joe Biden

“We have created more than fourteen and a half million new jobs [and] increased wages for tens of millions of Americans.” —Kamala Harris

Non Compos Mentis

“I love how Trump is now saying Biden is for abortion on demand. That’s not true. That’s not what Roe v. Wade said. It said the three trimesters.” —Joe Biden

Delusions of Grandeur

“As we enter into the campaign season, the American people are beginning to focus on President Biden’s incredible track record of results.” —House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY)

“The people who know my work are incredibly supportive.” —Kamala Harris

For the Record

“I’ll never support a so-called ‘border security deal’ that increases illegal immigration, normalizes Biden’s Border Crisis, and allows thousands of illegal aliens to continue flooding into our country. The American People want border security — not fake deals that won’t secure the border.” —Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN)

“President Joe Biden tells a lot of tall tales about the border crisis, but his claim that he needs the reckless bipartisan immigration bill being negotiated in the Senate to give him the authority to ‘shut down the border’ and he ‘would use it the day’ he signs the bill into law to end the crisis is one of his tallest tales yet.” —Hans von Spakovsky

“Biden’s claim of powerlessness is a crock. … He could clamp down right now if he wanted. Indeed, he could demonstrate seriousness on the issue of border control by reversing the executive orders that promoted the migration in the first place.” —Matthew Continetti

Political Futures

“Biden isn’t worried about losing black and Hispanic voters concerned about illegal migration and border security. He’s worried about losing the college-educated liberal professionals who exercise undue influence in his administration and who have been radicalized into believing that unchecked migration is a human right. His dependence on these college liberals constrains his actions and weakens the country.” —Matthew Continetti

And Last…

“A country that turns [Daniel] Penny into a criminal and lets this thug [Jhoan Boada] walk free, beat up police officers and go back on the streets before the sun goes down is a country on the verge of disintegration.” —Gary Bauer
