Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “Welfare’s purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.”

Upright: “At the current pace, Obama’s hometown of Chicago will have had nearly 4,000 murders … while he was president. … Since Obama has been in office he has devoted no energy to and shown no interest in the many and manifest social problems afflicting America’s cities. … What Obama has done, though, is drive race relations to a twenty-year low and has set those communities most in need of effective policing at war with their police departments. … And that will be his legacy.” —RedState’s streiff

Village idiots: “Guns, in and of themselves, in my opinion, will not make Americans safer. We lose 33,000 people a year already to gun violence. Arming more people … is not the appropriate response to terrorism.” —Hillary Clinton

Non Compos Mentis: “That’s kind of a no-brainer. If somebody is loading guns and ammunition into a house, I think it’s a good idea to call 911. Do it.” —Bernie Sanders

For the record: “Republicans … were willing to concede so much.” —Nancy Pelosi on Congress’s trillion-dollar tax-and-spend boondoggle

Demo-gogues: “If you’ve been watching television for the last month, all you have been seeing, all you have been hearing about is [Islamic State] guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you. So I understand why people are concerned about it. Look, the media is pursuing ratings. This is a legitimate news story. I think that, you know, it’s up to the media to make a determination about how they want to cover things.” —Barack Obama (Funny how media sensationalism is suddenly relevant when it exposes Obama’s reckless policies.)

Braying jackass: “The Republican Party in the United States is perhaps literally the only major party in the developed world that is still engaging in climate denial.” —Barack Obama

Late-night humor: “There will be a full moon on Christmas this year. The last time that happened was in 1977, which is also the year the first ‘Star Wars’ movie came out.” —Jimmy Kimmel (That’s no moon…)
