“We will never surrender our guns, never.”
– – The National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, added that recent mass shootings have been used “to blame us, to shame us, to compromise our freedom for their agenda.”

“The GOP that’s leading us – we don’t know where they’re taking us, but they’re raping us along the way.”
– – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Randy Voller.

“The speaker is the captain of a mutinous ship.”
– – Democrat Representative Bill Keating on the divided House Republican caucus.

“The people that I’ve talked to seem to be doing well. In fact, when I got out in restaurants here in town, people come up to me. They want to see more sequestration, not less.”
– – Republican Representative Billy Long (R-MO) on how the automatic budget cuts are a good thing.

“I pray that Hillary Clinton decides to run for president of the United States.”

“Mitt Romney appeared like a kid who showed up for his science project and the teacher said, ‘Explain it,’ and Mitt couldn’t do it. “His ‘dad,’ Paul Ryan, explained it to him, but Mitt still didn’t get it… That’s why we lost the last election.”
– – Republican Representative Pete Sessions.

“Then, my first gut reaction seeing the horror of that person that has their legs blown off. You know, the bone sticking out? He was not in shock. I looked and I thought there’s something… I don’t know what’s wrong, but it seems surreal to me. I talked to my sister, who’s not into politics at all, and she said, yes, I saw the same thing. He was not in shock. He was not in pain. If I had had those type of injuries, I’d be screaming in agony.”

– – New Hampshire Republican state Representative Stella Tremblay, suggesting “there’s something wrong here” in the official explanation behind the Boston bombings.
