– Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. nominee E.W. Jackson

“What we’ve seen in the last seven or eight days have really shaken me. History teaches us that when government is too large and too powerful, no matter who’s in charge, it will lead to abuses.”

– Republican Senator Marco Rubio

“Six months is a lifetime in politics. But an awful lot of what’s happening in Washington with the current regime should help us.”

– Former Virginia Republican Senate candidate (and Iran-Contra figure) Oliver North on the wave of conservative enthusiasm

“I’m not a fan of the president, in case you didn’t know that.”

– Mitt Romney, on the Tonight Show

“I think we overreached in ’98 — how’s that for a quote you can use? They need to be calm and factual. For example, a [House] subcommittee … should invite every single tea party, conservative, patriot group that was messed over by the IRS — every single one of them — to come in and testify, so that they build this deadening record of how many different people were having their rights abused by this administration.”

– Newt Gingrich

“You cannot take the freedom of law-abiding Americans, whether you disagree with them or not, and keep your own freedom. When you do that, you go to jail.”

– Louisiana Republican Governor (and possible 2014 Presidential candidate) Bobby Jindal  on the IRS officials who targeted conservative groups

“For me personally, it has been a good week.”

– White House press secretary Jay Carney on being in the hot seat over the controversies swirling around the administration
