The Demo-gogues

Nanny State personified:

“I view my work in politics and government as an extension of my role as a mom.” –House Speaker Nanny Pelosi (D-CA) in a rare moment of honesty

Sometimes they get it right:

“‘Nothing’ is better than getting that. We ought to follow the doctors’ oath and say, ‘First, let’s do no harm.'” –Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) on the “public option”

Taxes, taxes and more taxes:

“We [the United States] tax everything that moves and doesn’t move, and that’s not what we see in Pakistan.” –Hillary Clinton, advocating tax hikes in Pakistan

Demos are wrong on energy policy:

“The fact of the matter is, Sarah Palin thinks the answer to energy was drill, baby, drill. No. It’s a lot more complicated, Sarah, than drill, baby, drill. … I know what these guys are against. I know what Bill’s [Owens] opponents are against. I know what Rush Limbaugh is against. I know what Dick Armey is against. I know what all these folks are against. I’m not being a wise guy. But I don’t know what they’re for.” –Vice President Joe Biden

(“[A]ny time you and I question the schemes of the do-gooders, we’re denounced as being opposed to their humanitarian goals. It seems impossible to legitimately debate their solutions with the assumption that all of us share the desire to help the less fortunate. They tell us we’re always ‘against,’ never ‘for’ anything.” –Ronald Reagan)

Now that he’s saved the world…

“Having brought the economy back from the brink, the question is how are we going to make sure that people are getting back to work and able to support their families. It’s not going to happen overnight, but we will not rest until we are succeeding in generating the jobs that this economy needs.” –Barack Obama

Recovery?

“Oh, I’m confident we’ve hit bottom. … We’re getting to the end of this toboggan run. We’re no longer talking about a depression. We’re talking about the shape of a recovery.” –Joe Biden

Write ’em off:

“Sometimes when I hear the crazy ideas being dispensed by the Right, I think, ‘Have these people totally lost their minds?’ Congress wants to create death panels? America is on a slippery slope to socialism? Fascists are loose in the White House? It’s tempting to just tune it all out, to write it off as the outrageous rants of a fanatical fringe.” –Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD)
