Monday Short Cuts

“Ask yourself, ‘Are you better off now than you were four years ago? Is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? Is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? Is America as respected throughout the world as it was?” —The Gipper

Predictions: “If you’re shocked that Donald Trump was capable of being this much of a pig, you let yourself be deluded. If you’re surprised that the Clinton campaign — or some allied party — found something like this, you willfully chose to live in a fantasyland. If you think there isn’t more of this stuff waiting, you’re doubling down on your delusions and fantasies.” —Jonah Goldberg

A real victim: “Actions speak louder than words. Mr. Trump may have said some bad words but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don’t think there’s any comparison.” —Juanita Broaddrick

“Hillary put me through something that you would never put a 12-year-old through. And she says she’s for women and children.” —Kathy Shelton, whose rapist Hillary Clinton defended in 1975

For the record: “We are one month from an election, and President Barack Obama’s signature achievement is cratering, destroying millions of pocketbooks in its wake. States are reporting premium increases of 60%, 70%, 80%. Insurers, sagging under losses, are fleeing. Nearly a third of U.S. counties are now down to a single ObamaCare plan. Seventeen of 23 ObamaCare co-ops have imploded. Tennessee’s insurance commissioner warns her state’s exchange market is 'very near collapse.’ The law’s supporters are flailing, incapable of defending it during this public death spiral.” —Kimberley Strassel

Confessions: “I wanted a single payer [health insurance system]. … I would love a single-payer [system], but we’re not there. I wanted a public option which would address that.” —Nancy Pelosi

“Nixon covered up someone else’s crime and resigned the presidency. Hillary covered up her own crime and thinks she deserves the presidency.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
