Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., on the Obama health-care reform plan : The president is "dropping likc a rock. The plan would make us look like Havana in 1959 when Castro came in." (Or the U.S. when Dubya went out?)
Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N. C.: "There are no Americans who don't have health care."
Rush Limbaugh, who thinks he should play the high priest in Mozart's Magic Flute: "Let's
face it, Obama's black, and I think he's got a chip on his shoulder."
Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C.: " If we're able to stop Obama on this [health care reform] it will be his Waterloo. It will break him."
Lou Dobbs, CNN, on Obama's birthplace: "The questions won't go away because they haven't been dealt with."
Rush Limbaugh, again, on why he has an audience: "I'm inspiring."
U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn: "Let's agree that we're going to have PAYGO [pay as you go] enforcement, that we're not going to cry 'emergency' every time we have a Katrina, every time we have a tsunami, every time we have a need for extra spending, that we don't go call for a special appropriation to allow us circumvent the PAYGO rule. [Note to Blackburn's district of Memphis: Stop laughing. This could cost you big bucks, and everything you own!]
My sides are splitting.
