Pot and kettle

Post partisan politics? “If I hear one more Republican tell me about balancing the budget, I am going to strangle them.” –Joe Biden, who quickly added, “To the press, that’s a figure of speech.”

The BIG Lie: “If you are concerned about debt and deficits, the other side is not presenting any serious ideas.” –BO

Whose money is it? “Their number one economic priority is giving $700 billion in tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires.” –BO, who doesn’t want small business owners to keep their own money

Demotivational speaker: “Every single one of you is a shareholder in that mission of rebuilding our country and reclaiming our future. We can’t let this country fall backwards because the rest of us didn’t care enough to fight. The stakes are too high for our country and for your future.” –Barack Obama

Failing to practice what you preach: “[Y]ou have to go by the three C’s: the Constitution, your conscience and your constituents when you make a vote. What your caucus, Democratic or Republican, thinks is very, very secondary to what I just described.” –House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who routinely ignores the Constitution

Pot and kettle: “I’m always suspicious of, uh, of politics that is dividing people instead of bringing them together.” —Barack Obama, the great divider, on the immigration debate

Pot and kettle again: “It seems to me that Tea Party activists, increasingly influential in the Republican Party, do not seem to much like America the way we are.” –Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

“[T]he Republicans have said ‘no, no, no.’ … They have been the party of ‘no’ and obstructionism. … [T]hey do not want America to succeed. They’re into politics.” –Sen. Bernie Sander, self-proclaimed socialist from Vermont

Belly Laugh of the Week: “Ours is a complex message. The Tea Party message is pretty easy and simple. We just don’t have it in our make-up, in our DNA, to mislead the public.” –Democrat Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell
