Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “The government’s view of the economy can be summed up in a few short phrases. It if moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”

Food for thought: “Conservatives have a real and legitimate reason to be pissed off at the GOP. Polling suggests conservatives hate the Republicans in Washington more than Democrats hate the Republicans in Washington. That anger has galvanized conservatives and pushed them toward Donald Trump. To his credit, he has capitalized on that anger. But folks, this is anger at an unhealthy level. It is anger that has gone beyond the righteous anger of repeated betrayals from Washington. It is an anger that has become unhinged and is potentially uncontrollable. Anger at that level is more often destructive than constructive.” —Eric Erickson

Scandals are totally hilarious: “You may have seen that I recently launched a Snapchat account. I love it. I love it. Those messages disappear all by themselves.” —Hillary Clinton making light of her email scandal

Auditioning for the Democrat nomination? “When this perverted jihadist struck, everyone responded. We have a message for those perverted cowards around the world. America never yields, never bends, never cowers and never stands down.” —Joe Biden at the memorial service for the five service members killed in Chattanooga

And last… “President Obama said that Iran’s Supreme Leader ‘is a politician just like everybody else.’ Uh huh. And Germany’s concentration camps were just a housing program.” —Fred Thompson
