Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy.” —Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

For the record: “[The Trump-Russia dossier] is a garbage document. It never should have been presented … as part of an intelligence briefing. … So, Trump’s right to be upset about that. … And when people make mistakes, they should apologize.” —Bob Woodward

Demo-gogues: “Republicans have been harking for … almost seven years that they need to repeal the Affordable Care Act. … We can … go backwards … to a time where we might as well [have] lived in caves without medicine. Where a person with asthma couldn’t get insurance. Where a family member, if they fell ill and got cancer treatment, the family was destitute because they had bills of hundreds of thousands of dollars. And the Affordable Care Act protects every family in America. … Shame on the Republicans for wanting to get rid of it and go backwards as a nation.” —Rep. Tony Cardenas

Friendly fire: “I am befuddled as to why President Obama would want in his final days to [gut the ‘wet foot, dry foot’ policy for Cuban refugees]. … I don’t know why he did it now — why there was a need to do it.” —Rep. Luis Gutierrez

Alpha Jackass: “It’s a bunch of mediocre negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump’s exploitive campaign against black people.” —CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill scolding “non-expert” blacks meeting with Trump

And last… “It’s Inauguration Week, a time turn the page and leave behind the mistakes of the past… and to look ahead with new confidence to the mistakes of the future.” —Jim Geraghty
