Wrong on so many levels:

“Republicans actually have plenty of ideas. That’s the problem. The party’s ideas — about economic issues, social issues and just about everything else — are not popular ideas. They are extremely conservative ideas tarred by association with the extremely unpopular George W. Bush, who helped downsize the party to its extremely conservative base. … A hard-right agenda of slashing taxes for the investor class, protecting marriage from gays, blocking universal health insurance and extolling the glories of waterboarding produces terrific ratings for Rush Limbaugh, but it’s not a majority agenda.” —Time magazine’s Michael Grunwald

Wrong again:

“[I]f they lost their heart in the 1980s, and they lost their mind in the 1990s, what we’ve seen in the 2000s is Republicans losing their image, and they lost it on national security.” —Newsweek’s Richard Wolffe

Indeed, imagine what America would be without:

“Americans can be thankful for two humanitarian presidents whose legacies stand as emblems of caring values that enrich us as a nation. President Franklin D. Roosevelt won passage of the Social Security Act in 1935 and President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Medicare legislation in 1965. Social Security and Medicare work beautifully and provide security and medical care to millions of American families, especially now in hard economic times. Imagine what America would be without. President Barack Obama should follow the formula of his two predecessors and support a ‘single payer’ health plan, assuring universal health care in this country.” –“journalist Helen Thomas

Look out:

“Health care is … the Obama administration’s number one priority for the rest of the year. They believe now the decks are cleared on coming back to the taxpayers for money from the banks. They will be able to make a real push for health care this summer. And they are going to drive to get it done before October. And they think the stars are aligning.” –ABC’s George Stephanopoulos

Objective reporting:

“The U.S. Senate seat from Minnesota that could give President Barack Obama’s Democrats the margin to pass legislation without Republican interference remains unfilled six months after the votes were cast.” —Reuters

Non Compos Mentis:

“To call something an ‘enhanced interrogation technique’ doesn’t alter the fact that we thought it was torture…. [I]t’s almost the moral equivalent of saying that rape is an enhanced seduction technique.” –ABC News anchor Ted Koppel
