Friday Short Cuts

Upright: “The real outrage isn’t that insurers like Aetna are abandoning Obamacare, but that companies like Aetna likely participated in Obamacare for cronyistic reasons to begin with.” —David Harsanyi

For the record: “Everything Obama has done is fairly and necessarily imputable to Clinton because she participated in and ratified his policies and actions and promises to do worse. In a number of areas, she already has done worse. On top of all this, Clinton is the most opportunistically ambitious, double-dealing, corrupt fraud in the modern era.” —David Limbaugh

Non Compos Mentis: “This is a much more hopeful and positive period in history than we have seen certainly in our lifetimes. I tell my kids this: that they couldn’t be luckier to be living in this world at this time.” —Susan Rice

General regret: “Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that. And believe it or not, I regret it. And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues.” —Donald Trump

Ransom: “So to recap, in contravention of federal criminal law that prohibits Americans from transferring things of value to Iran, whether directly or indirectly (including through third countries), President Obama transferred Iran $400 million by laundering American assets into foreign currency and then delivering it — as a ransom for hostages, in violation of American policy — to agents of the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, so it could be transported to Tehran by an airline previously sanctioned for abetting terrorism and weapons shipments.” —Andrew McCarthy

And last… “Obama says we need to trust the Iranians more, especially when it comes to their nuclear weapons program. So does he want us to trust the Iranians when they say he is lying and it was a ransom payment?” —Gary Bauer
