Odds and Ends
You can’t fix stupid. Seriously. O’Reilly is Irish. And as Paddys Lamentation points out, it wasn’t all that for the Irish back in the day.
“I’m tired now of the elections, People spoke. Move on, get on with it. I want to do other things and not to be ugly. They are going to have to compromise, It’s not a dirty word.” – Former First Lady Barbara Bush
Compromise is not a dirty word. Maybe the former First Lady should have a sit down about that with Bill O’Reilly.
Steve Ford, recalling his mother Former First Lady Betty Ford, upon moving in to the White House:
“Jerry, something’s wrong here. You just became President of the United States and I’m still cooking.”
On why he lost:
‘You can imagine for somebody making $25,000 or $30,000, or $35,000 a year, being told you’re now going to get free health care, particularly if you don’t have it, getting free health care worth, what, $10,000 per family, in perpetuity, I mean, this is huge,’’ – Mitt Romney
That Obamacare isn’t free notwithstanding, this coming from the guy who said the ER was a better alternative for the less fortunate than affordable insurance. Not only that, it’s highly unlikely Mr. $21 million dollar a year guy has the faintest idea of what it takes to function in this country on $25,000 or $30,000, 40,000 a year.
But Governor Christie of the great state of New Jersey said it best:
You can’t expect to be a leader of all the people and be divisive. You have to talk about themes, policies that unite people, and play to their aspirations and their goals and their hopes for their family and their neighbors.”
