Political Editors / October 31, 2019

Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Mark Meadows, Richard Stengel, Elizabeth Warren, and more.

Insight: “Socialism proposes no adequate substitute for the motive of enlightened selfishness that today is at the basis of all human labor and effort, enterprise and new activity.” —William Howard Taft (1857-1930)

Political futures: “If the reports about the whistleblower’s identity are true, it raises grave, fundamental concerns about the basis of this Ukraine investigation — and explains why Washington Democrats continue making every effort to hide information from Americans.” —Rep. Mark Meadows

Bluster: “I do not take any pleasure in the need for this [impeachment] resolution. We are not here in some partisan exercise. We are here because the facts compel us to be here. There is serious evidence that President Trump may have violated the Constitution.” —Rep. James McGovern

You’ve been warned: “Our campaign is not only about changing the system politically and economically. We will change the value system of this country.” —Bernie Sanders

Non compos mentis: “All speech is not equal. And where truth cannot drive out lies, we must add new guardrails. I’m all for protecting ‘thought that we hate,’ but not speech that incites hate. It undermines the very values of a fair marketplace of ideas that the First Amendment is designed to protect.” —former Time editor Richard Stengel

Demo-gogues: “I’ve mostly been flying commercial, um, but we’ve been trying to look at other ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint and it’s everything from the kind of car we drive … to … do we purchase offsets? Can we make that work as a way to try to reduce the footprint?” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren

And last… “There was more coverage of Trump posting a meme of a dog getting a fake medal than there was of Trump giving an actual war hero the Medal of Honor… That tells you everything you need to know about the Mainstream Media. They hate Trump more than they love America.” —Charlie Kirk
