Monday Short Cuts

Schumer to Hillary: “When you lose to somebody who has 40% popularity, you don’t blame other things … you blame yourself.”

The Gipper: “How can we not do what is right and needed to preserve this last best hope of man on Earth? After all our struggles to restore America, to revive confidence in our country, hope for our future — after all our hard-won victories earned though the patience and courage of every citizen — we cannot, must not and will not turn back. We will finish our job. How could we do less? We’re Americans.”

For the record: “When you lose to somebody who has 40% popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump.” —Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Hillary Clinton

Non Compos Mentis: “Gas prices are sticky — you know, when the domestic price … for oil goes up on the markets, it goes right up but it never goes down.” —Chuck Schumer (Only the “experts” believed gas prices would remain permanently high.)

Belly laugh of the week: “Maybe I’ve been too aggressive at times? I know some of the candidates that I’ve covered might think I’ve been too aggressive. I know that Hillary Clinton didn’t like being asked a lot of the questions she got asked on rope lines, but if she had had more news conferences and been more accessible, maybe we wouldn’t have to chase her down at rope lines.” —NBC’s Andrea Mitchell

Braying Jackass: “The great deal maker failed to make a [health care] deal. And so now he’s just saying I am going to imperil 30 million Americans. … That’s just not a cynical way that’s violating his promises, that’s sinister. It’s evil to plot against Americans like that.” —Sen. Cory Booker

And last… “Sessions is doing exactly the wrong thing by doubling down on asset seizure. The message it sends is that the feds see the rest of us as prey, not as citizens. The attorney general should be ashamed to take that position.” —Glenn Reynolds
