The Demogogues

Who does she represent again?: "What you saw in the Congress this week wasthe war dance of the handmaidens of the oil companies. That's what you saw on the Republican side of the aisle." ---House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-OPEC) on Republican congressmen staying on the job to debate energy while Democrats went home and ignored the problem ++ "What our [GOP] colleagues are talking about is something that won't have an effect for 10 years and it will be two cents at the time." ---Nancy Pelosi, who needs remedial economics training

Clear as mud: "What I don't want to do is for the best to be the enemy of the good. And if we can come up with a genuine bipartisan compromise, in which I have to accept some things that I don't like or the Democrats have to accept some things that they don't like in exchange for actually moving us in the direction of actual energy independence, then that's something I'm open to." ---Barack Obama

Is Obama ready to be president?: "You could argue that no one is ever ready to be president." ---Bill Clinton with a typical "Clintonesque" answer

Is Obama qualified to be president?: "I think everybody's got a right to run for president who qualifies under the Constitution. And I would be the last person to ever begrudge anybody their ambition." ---Bill Clinton **"who qualifies under the Constitution." Wonder what Clinton knows...

Race bait: "Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they're going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, 'he's not patriotic enough, he's got a funny name,' you know, 'he doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills'." ---Barack Obama
