Soundbites

19 Jul

“In the political environment that exists today, the opposition research of the Obama campaign is looking for anything they can use to distract from the failure of the president to reignite our economy. And I’m simply not enthusiastic about giving them hundreds or thousands of more pages to pick through, distort, and lie about.”

– Mitt Romney, in an interview, reiterating that he won’t release tax returns for years beyond 2010 and 2011.

“Throughout history, presidential candidates have disclosed income tax information prior to Election Day. We believe Americans value disclosure and transparency in campaigns.”

– Senior Mitt Romney adviser Ed Gillespie, in a 2004 RNC press release, urging Senator John Kerry to release more tax information.

“I wish this president would learn how to be an American.”

– Former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu on a conference call organized by Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.

“It’s a clown story, bro.”

– Former Representative Anthony Weiner on speculation that he might return to politics.

“I think it can now be said, without equivocation — without equivocation — that this man hates this country. He is trying, Barack Obama is trying, to dismantle, brick-by-brick, the American dream. There’s no other way to put this. There’s no other way to explain this.”

– Radio host Rush Limbaugh.

“The only person who has seen Romney’s taxes is John McCain and he took one look and picked Sarah Palin.”

– James Carville.
