Monday Short Cuts

Publius · Oct. 12, 2015

The Gipper: “The size of the federal budget is not an appropriate barometer of social conscience or charitable concern.”

Braying Jenny: “[T]he 15 Republican candidates that are left … [are] saying, ‘Yeah, let’s kick women out. Let’s kick immigrants out of this country. Let’s take away health care from women.’” —Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Identity crisis: “No, [I’m not a capitalist]. I’m a Democratic Socialist. … Look, when one of your Republican colleagues gets on the show, do you say, ‘Are you a capitalist?’ Have you ever referred to them as capitalists?” —an agitated Bernie Sanders on “Meet the Press”

The BIG lie: “It is my understanding that they made a decision, a business decision that regulations didn’t shut them down. They didn’t want to live within the regulations. So they decided to go elsewhere. That was a private sector decision on their part to do that.” —Nancy Pelosi on San Francisco’s only gun shop closing

Village Idiots: “Jesus was a Palestinian.” —former Obama pastor Jeremiah Wright

Non Compos Mentis: “If you think that running your economy into the ground and having to send troops in, in order to prop up your only ally is leadership, then we’ve got a different definition of leadership. My definition of leadership would be leading on climate change, an international accord that potentially we’ll get in Paris. My definition of leadership is mobilizing the entire world to make sure that Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon.” —Barack Obama, who contends Vladimir Putin’s recent provocations aren’t “an indication of strength”

And last… “Note to self: Remind Obama not to talk about ‘limiting gun ownership’ & ‘releasing thousands of dangerous prison inmates’ on the same day.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
