Quotable Quotes from Left Field
There is no shortage of ‘Dumb Bush Quotes’ sites on the internet. They are everywhere. Visit one and you find silly phrases, grammatical errors, mistakes. But you will find nothing hateful -- no claims of Democratic rottenness, stupidity, or conspiracy. Nothing like "Harry Reid is a big fat liar!" Maybe of course the Democrats are just so nice that there’s nothing bad to say about them.
The Democrats do talk a lot though, so it’s easy to assemble some quotes. Here are some lines from the Dems’ top officials, starring DNC Chairman Howard Dean and backed up by a supporting cast of Senators and Congressman:
"I think this guy is a loser." - Sen. Harry Reid, D-NV
"He betrayed this country! He played on our fears! He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure pre-ordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place!" - Al Gore
"Their idea of equal rights is the American flag and Confederate swastika flying side by side." - Julian Bond, NAACP Chairman, on the Republican Party
"You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here." - Howard Dean
"There’s corruption at the highest level of the Republican Party." - Howard Dean
"I think Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence." -Howard Dean
"[Osama bin Laden has] been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and these people are extremely grateful. We haven't done that." - Sen. Patty Murray, D-WA
"There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud," - Sen. Kennedy, D-MA
"One could say that Osama bin Laden and these non-nation-state fighters with religious purpose are very similar to those kind of atypical revolutionaries that helped to cast off the British crown." - Marcy Kaptur, Democratic Representative from Ohio
"I'm the number one target of the White House. They can't get Osama bin Laden; they're going to get me." -Sen. Jean Carnahan, D-MO
"I was embarrassed to wear it." Sen. Feinstein, D-CA, talking about her American flag pin.
"Republicans have painted us into a corner where they have forced us to defend abortion. I don’t know anybody who’s for abortion." - Howard Dean
"I’ve waffled before. I’ll waffle again."- Howard Dean
On Religious Thoughts:
"I cannot imagine that God, whoever He has or She has to worry about, is going to take the time to debate the filibuster in heaven." - Sen. Dick Durbin (D, IL)
"They could call Jesus a terrorist too. I mean, he was pretty tough on money lenders a time or two." - Ramsey Clark, former Democratic Attorney General
These are just a few choice selections of Liberal “thought.” It is fairly unfortunate for these Dems that they cannot claim that they were trying to say something else or that they got the words mixed up. It’s not the words that are confused -- it’s the ideas.
