Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, AOC, and more.

Insight: “I think that every true reformer, every real friend of liberty, will agree with me in saying that if we must erect safeguards, they should be rather for the security of the individual than of the mass, and that our chiefest care must be to train the majority to respect the rights of the minority, to prevent the claims of the few from being trampled under foot by the caprice or passion of the many.” —Richard John Cartwright (1835-1912)

Observations: “The greatest casualty of this pandemic will be science. … It has become just another political tool.” —Trey Gowdy

Food for thought: “I don’t have a college degree and I spend my days educating PhDs about basic scientific facts. What does that tell you about our education system?” —Matt Walsh

For the record: “Every American is going to pay higher taxes due to the Biden administration’s policies. Remember that inflation is a hidden tax. It is a powerful (and often unseen and unstoppable) way for a government to pay for its goods and services without raising visible taxes that make people angry.” —Newt Gingrich

Dumb… “[Friday’s] jobs report is a stark reminder of what American families know all too well: child care is infrastructure.” —Senator Elizabeth Warren

…and dumber: “Quite frankly, we’re moving more rapidly than I thought we would.” —Joe Biden

Hot air: “We can’t deny it, there is a real change in the weather. And if we go 1.5 degrees warmer, we’re gonna be in real trouble — the point of no return.” —Joe Biden

Straight from the horse’s mouth: “[Taking questions] is not something we recommend. In fact, a lot of times we say [to Biden], ‘Don’t take questions.’ But he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States.” —White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki

Gaslighting: “Let’s talk about how many lives Planned Parenthood has saved and how many babies have been born because of the prenatal care provided by Planned Parenthood. And if you don’t believe it and if you’ve never met a Planned Parenthood baby, I’m happy to let you know that I am one.” —Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Nope: “We have to ask our fellow citizens to listen a bit more, and to believe us, and to know we don’t wanna be out there marchin’. I mean, all those Black Lives Matter kids, they’d rather not have to worry about this. They’re taking to the streets because they have to.” —Michelle Obama

Grand delusions I: “The left may go crazy and may become dissociated from reality. But if so, it’s going to be this afternoon, not this morning. It hasn’t happened yet.” —historian Jon Meacham

Grand delusions II: “We came as close to losing the country as we know it on January 6 as we have since the Civil War. And I say that with no hyperbole.” —Jon Meacham

And last… “If Biden’s job report was off by 74%, imagine how bad their other projections are?” —Caleb Hull
