The Demo-gogues

“Were the pictures which have been drawn by the political jealousy of some among us faithful likenesses of the human character, the inference would be, that there is not sufficient virtue among men for self-government; and that nothing less than the chains of despotism can restrain them from destroying and devouring one another.” —Federalist No. 55

Moppin’ on up

Nanny state:

“Now, to the non-Democrats who may be watching today, I want everybody to know we believe in a strong and loyal opposition. I believe in a two-party system, where ideas are tested and assumptions are challenged, because that’s how we move this country forward. But what I reject is when some folks decide to sit on the sidelines and root for failure on health care, or on energy, or on our economy. What I reject is when some folks say we should go back to the past policies when it was those very same policies that got us into this mess in the first place. …[Y]ou know, I’m busy, Nancy’s busy with our mops cleaning up somebody else’s mess. We don’t want somebody sitting back saying, ‘You’re not holding the mop the right way.’ Why don’t you grab a mop? Why don’t you help clean up? ‘You’re not mopping fast enough. That’s a socialist mop.’ Grab a mop. Let’s get to work.” –Barack Obama

A little advice:

“Well, now, first of all, I did get elected president….” –Barack Obama, who should remember that he did ask for the responsibility next time he wants to blame someone else

More finger pointing:

“It is absolutely clear that it is an unsustainable situation as we go forward, and it is well known to the public that the health insurance companies are the problem.” –House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

That’s what we’re afraid of:

“We are laying a foundation to build on and create a new economy. We [as a government] have an overwhelming obligation.” –Vice President Joe Biden

Hope overflows:

“Counting the numbers of troops is not going to define our success here. … There is no military success ultimately to Afghanistan.” –John Francois Kerry, who served in Vietnam

Skewed view of winning:

“Does it really take 100,000 troops to find Osama Bin Laden? And how much will this cost? How much in terms of more dollars? How much in terms of American blood?” –Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV), who is apparently not aware that Afghanistan is more than a game of capture the flag
