The following are actual quotes from the liberal side of the aisle:
My fear is that the whole island (Guam) will become so overpopulated that it will tip over and capsize. -- Rep. Johnson, D-GA

I've now been in 57 states. I think I now have one more to go. -- Barack Obama

If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. -- Barack Obama

A zebra doesn't change its spots. -- Al Gore

If you take out the killings, Washingtonactually has very, very low crime rate. -- Marion Berry

It all depends on what the meaning og the word "is" is. -- Bill Clinton

But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it. -- Nancy Pelosi

I said Jil "If there's ever a problemjust walk out on the balcony here...put the double barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. --Joe Biden

And, Ms. Cortez has and others in the recent election have lowered the standards from there, as voters take thier

    The actual Nasty Pelousy quote was:
    “But we have to pass the bill so that you can uh, find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversies.”

    Thanks Herb.

    I was just thinking of the golden quote about Guam the other day.

    Nothing came of it at the time. The guy was ridiculed but his supporters managed to bury the incident in fog.

    As for Occasional Cortex (borrowing from Nick) she escalated the left's agenda by openly admitting on CNN that the left is not interested in the truth. "Morals" are more important.

    Doesn't take a brain surgeon to know what those morals of the left entail.

    A friend just sent this, thought you'd enjoy.

    Eleven teens die each day because of texting while driving. Maybe it's time to raise the age of Smartphone ownership to 21.

    If gun control laws actually worked, Chicago would be Mayberry.

    The Second Amendment makes more women equal than the entire feminist movement.

    Legal gun owners have 300 million guns and probably a trillion rounds of ammo. Seriously, if we were the problem, you'd know it.

    When JFK was killed, nobody blamed the rifle.

    The NRA murders 0 people and receives $0 in government funds. Planned Parenthood kills 350,000 babies every year and receives $500,000,000 in tax dollars annually.

    I have no problem with vigorous background checks when it comes to firearms. While we're at it, let's do the same when it comes to immigration and voter I.D.

    Folks keep talking about another Civil War. One side knows how to shoot and has a trillion bullets. The other side has crying closets and is confused about which bathroom to use. How do you think that's going to end?

    I think the Johnson quote was probably a deliberate exaggeration for effect, kind of like when Trump said he could kill someone in front of a crowd and not lose any support.

      I'd like to think so, but I've seen the clip and nothing indicates anything of the sort. He rambles on about how it is long and narrow, eventually getting to his concern about it tipping over. He was very focused on how "small" it is at its "narrowest point" and it being long in one way. It really points to it being genuine. Or it may have been a result of his illness, I don't recall the timeline on those two bits.

    As much as it grieves me to defend Obama, to be fair, he did know that if you count US protectorates like the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Marianas, and others, we do govern 57 territories. He just had a clumsy moment, calling all of them "states."

    Obama's other malaprop about keeping your doctor, I think he really believed it based on smoke blown up his posterior by insurance companies that loved the idea of government forcing every citizen to buy their offerings. When the SCOTUS yanked the props out from the mandate, the whole Obamacare fantasy collapsed, along with all the promises of lower cost, keeping your plan, etc.

      Obama wasn't talking about territories. He was talking about 60 states.
      “I’ve now been in fifty-seven states, I think one left to go—one left to go, Alaska and Hawaii I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it.”
      57 states + 1 left tog go + Alaska + Hawaii = 60 states.
