Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “We are for a provision that destitution should not follow unemployment by reason of old age, and to that end we have accepted Social Security as a step toward meeting the problem. However, we are against those entrusted with this program when they practice deception regarding its fiscal shortcomings, when they charge that any criticism of the program means that we want to end payments.”

Upright: “Between Kennedy’s cavorting with communists and Obama’s appeasement of the ayatollah, I think it is pretty clear which party has done more to deliberately undermine America.” —Gary Bauer

Openly and shamelessly advocating illegal activity: “[I]f you’re in IRS and have a certain president’s tax return that you’d like to leak, my address is: NYT, 620 Eighth Ave, NY NY 10018.” —New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof

Hyperbole: “I know it’s a time of concern for people who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back. I know that this is difficult. But I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers. And it has been people — individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals — who have made the difference. They’ve marched. They’ve bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.” —Loretta Lynch

Non Compos Mentis: “If we fail to represent [Muslims in Hollywood], we are in danger of losing people to extremism.” —actor Riz Ahmed

Good question: “Liberals are constantly saying that people should have freedom regardless of ‘who they love.’ But what if that person is God?” —Tony Perkins
