Soundbites

Soundbites-02-sized“I’m pretty confident that Republicans would not hold middle class taxes hostage to trying to protect tax cuts for high-income individuals.”

– President Obama, in an interview with ABC News, on the fiscal cliff

“I don’t think you can draw any quick conclusions other than the fact that we lost and we know that.”

– RNC Chairman Reince Priebus

“A lot of us are campaign officials — or campaign professionals — and we want to do everything we can to help our side. Sometimes we think that’s voter ID, sometimes we think that’s longer lines — whatever it may be.”

– GOP campaign consultant Scott Tranter

“Any pundit who tries to claim he knows where all of this is going is lying. This schism could be a disaster for Republicans (because it will further alienate the rank-and-file, middle-and-working-class voters from the party establishment, which will now be bashed from the outside by DeMint and the Tea Party), or it could actually be a good thing for the Republicans’ future prospects (there’s a way to look at this as a long-overdue purge of the party’s moron faction).”

– Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone

“You guys tried to obstruct me. You fought me. Only I deserve the award.”

– The female undercover CIA agent heading up the hunt for Osama bin Laden, hitting reply-all on an email crediting many of her colleagues for the mission.

“While the vast majority of major corporate leaders either backed Mitt Romney last year or stayed neutral, they don’t really see the Republican Party as the good guys and Democrats as the bad guys. They see the whole political and governing process as dysfunctional.”

– Charlie Cook in the National Journal
