Soundbites

18 Oct

“Well, you want to jump out of your seat and rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him.”

– Tagg Romney, in an interview when asked how it felt to hear President Obama call his father a liar during last night’s debate.

“You all saw the man that I have sat with every day on average four to six hours a day.”

– Vice President Joe Biden, on President Obama’s debate performance.

“If you look at the movie, he didn’t say it. Somebody in the audience said it and he repeated it, and I’ve talked to him about it and he apologized and that’s it.”

– Republican Tommy Thompson on remarks by his son caught on video suggesting President Obama should go back “to Chicago — or Kenya.”

Matt Lauer asked Paul Ryan who would win the Wisconsin vs. Ohio State football game on November 17.
Lauer: “I would like you to tell the people of Ohio who’s going to win that game.”
Ryan: “They spoiled us last year. We spoiled them the year before–Jane and I were at that game. It really depends on who has the better record is going to lose, because that’s what happens.”
Lauer: “Who’s going to win the game, congressman? Tell the people of Ohio who’s going to win the game.”
Ryan: “It always depends on who’s got the better record. It’s up in Camp Randall [Stadium] this year. It’s up in Madison this year. Home field advantage works well. But if we’re doing better, they’ll beat us, and if they have a better record, then we’ll beat them. That’s always how it goes between the Badgers and the Buckeyes. How’s that for an answer?”
Lauer: “It’s a terrible answer. It’s OK, I’m out of time–you’re lucky.”

We’e out of time too.
