The Left Side of the Track

The BIG Lie: “Well, I have to tell you, David, if you look at my track record over the last two years, I cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011.”

–Barack Obama (Actually, federal spending increased by $147 billion in 2011.)

Belly laugh of the year: “I’m not driven by some ideological agenda. I’m a pretty practical guy.”

–Barack Obama

Another lie: “[Republicans] say that their biggest priority is making sure that we deal with the deficit in a serious way, but the way they’re behaving is that their only priority is making sure that the tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans are protected. That seems to be their only overriding, unifying theme.”

–Barack Obama

Just raise taxes: “Revenues have to be part of the equation in turning off the sequester, as well as spending cuts.”

–Barack Obama

Nice sentiment; try doing it: “We cannot let Washington politics get in the way of America’s progress. We’ve got to do what it takes to protect the middle class, grow this economy, and move our country forward.”

–Barack Obama

Loading our children with debt: “[Republicans using the debt limit to negotiate is] somewhat like taking your child hostage and saying to somebody else, ‘I’m going to shoot my child if you don’t do what I want done.’ You don’t want to shoot your child. There’s no Republican leader that wants to default on our debt — that I’ve talked to — so that ought to be non-partisan.”

–House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD)

Pot and kettle: “The House of Representatives is operating without the House of Representatives. It’s being operated with a dictatorship of the Speaker, not allowing the vast majority of the House of Representatives to get what they want.”

–Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)

Dezinformatsia

Gun grabbers: “Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. It’s badly written, confusing and more trouble than it’s worth. … Owning a gun should be a privilege, not a right. Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. … Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that ‘prying the guns from their cold, dead hands’ thing works for me. Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.”

–columnist Donald Kaul

Good riddance! “If [America] doesn’t change its gun laws I would, as a concerned parent first … seriously consider deporting myself.” –CNN’s Piers Morgan, who is British (A petition to deport Morgan over his anti-gun stance has tens of thousands of signatures.)

Tolerance: “My point … about gay rights, for example — it’s time for an amendment to the Bible.”

–Piers Morgan

Even the idiots are displeased: “[Obama] has taken all the Bush changes — he basically put them into the establishment, [and] he has codified them. That is what is sad. So we are going into the second administration that is living outside the law and does not respect the law and foundations of our system and he is a constitutional lawyer, you know. … It is an Orwellian state. It might not be oppressive on the surface, but there is no place to hide. Some part of you is going to end up in the database somewhere.”

–director Oliver Stone

“As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions.”

–Georgetown “constitutional law professor” Louis Michael Seidman

“The question for today, as the Republican party fighting, infighting, spills over onto the national stage, is whether they’ll go back to the center-left positions of Eisenhower and start winning elections again, or if they’ll double down on stupid to satisfy the Kochs, the Adelsons, the Murdochs, and the Limbaughs of their party. … I’m betting they’re gonna double down on stupid, ’cause that’s where the money’s comin’ from.”

–leftist radio talk show host Thom Hartman

“Stop saying, ‘I support the troops.’ I don’t. I used to.”

–filmmaker Michael Moore
