Humor: Democrats Have a Short Bench-Here is a Reminder of Dem’s Best Quotes

It is mind-boggling that the Democrats get any votes at all.  Looking back at some of their leadership’s famous quotes it is no wonder that the Dems are stuck with Clinton and Sanders in this election.  Let’s start with the venerable and nutty Harry Reid:

Harry Reid’s Gems:


  • Sound Financial Advice:  “We found ourselves in a hole that I didn’t dig, but I have dug, dug and dug to try to get out of that hole.” (huh?)
  • On H-1B Visas: This 21st century economy holds great promise for our people. But unless we give all Americans the skills they need to succeed, countries like India and China will take good-paying jobs that should be ours.” (Harry, stop letting them in to take the jobs)
  • Love for Tea Parties:  “We must stop the Tea Party before the United States Senate falls into the hands of extremists and ideologues who leave no room for reason or compromise, who don’t recognize common ground even when they’re standing on it. (Harry, don’t you think you are a bit extreme?)
  • Harry’s Insecurity: People in Nevada know me from the street to the ring to the Senate chambers. I’ve never had to prove my manhood to anyone.(Don’t show me yours!)
  • Love for Greenspan: “I’m not a big Greenspan fan-Alan Greenspan fan. I voted against him the last two times. I think he’s one of the biggest political hacks we have in Washington.” (Harry, look in the mirror)
  • Bush’s Supreme Court Nominee:  “We want him to give us a candidate who is mainstream, not extreme.” (Harry, Ginsberg et al are not mainstream either.  You mean not liberal)
  • On the Non-existent Asian Flu: “This flu is going to strike us all, me, my children, my grandchildren, and if they get it, half of them are going to die.” (Glad he is not an Alarmist)
  • LGBT Confusion:  “And I’m satisfied that we’ve made a lot of progress with issues relating to LBJ, lesbian, gay, anyway. What are the letters?” (Harry, I am quite sure President Johnson was straight)

Nancy Pelosi’s Gems:

Nancy Pelosi

  • Classic Nancy: “We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It” (Nancy, apt description of the legislative process)
  • Nancy’s Economic Ability:  “ObamaCare Would Lower Everyone’s Premiums” (Nancy, you were being recorded)
  • And then..: I Don’t Remember Saying ObamaCare Would Lower Everyone’s Premiums (Nancy, it wasn’t that long ago)
  • Nancy’s HC Prowess:  “ObamaCare’s Implementation Is “Fabulous” (Nancy, as compared to?)
  • Nancy’s Budgeting Expertise: “There is no more [spending] cuts to make.” (Nancy, Per the deficit, apparently you were right)
  • Nancy’s Logic:  “It Is Almost A False Argument To Say We Have A Spending Problem.” (Nancy, you just have not taxed us enough!)
  • Nancy’s Debt Limit Discussion:  “I do think that none of us should be negotiating on the debt limit. It should just be lifted” (Nancy, did you go to school)
  • Nancy’s Assessment of Obama:  “I don’t think [Obama’s] Ever Done Anything For Political Reasons” (Nancy, you want to rethink this one?)
  • Nancy is Delusional:  ObamaCare Is Lowering Costs And The Deficit (Nancy, don’t do us anymore favors)
  • Nancy’s Forecast:  “Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs. (Nancy, there were only about 350 million people in the US when you said this)


How about a couple of Insightful random quotes

For Cheryl Crow
For Cheryl Crow
  • Harry Read (sorry):  “Seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world.” (So junk mail is part of your real world? Just say ‘in)
  • Joe Biden:  “The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S.”  (I don’t know which if you is worse)
  • Joy Behar:  “Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday?” (Earth to Joy.  Black and Red are Accounting terms, not about people.  Do you get paid?)
  • Mary Francis Berry:  “Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them.” (former Chair of Comm. on Civil Rights, now you know)
  • Joe Biden: (If Hillary is indicted, you may have Joe):  “Now, people when I say that look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’ The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you.”  (BRILLIANT!)
  • Big Al Gore:  “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. (Classic, he was serious!)
  • Candidate Obama: “Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go.”  ( He studied law, not geography)
  • Jeremiah Wright:  “The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.” (So, who did they invent it for in your scary mind?)
  • Dem Congressman Hank Johnson: “My fear is that the whole island (of Guam) will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize. (You didn’t really mean this did you?  Guam is not floating, I checked)
  • Cheryl Crow:  “I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.”  (Didn’t read anything in the Bible about how many squares of TP we are entitled to?)

I am sure that there are a plethora of goofy quotes made by Republicans.  That is why I only read Ronald Reagan Quotes:

President Ronald W. Reagan
President Ronald W. Reagan

The challenge of statesmanship is to have the vision to dream of a better, safer world and the courage, persistence, and patience to turn that dream into reality.

We have every right to dream heroic dreams. Those who say that we’re in a time when there are no heroes, they just don’t know where to look.

and my favorite

“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”
