Today's Quote O' the Day belongs to former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, by way of Ben Smith at BuzzFeed. He was discussing the shellacking Republicans got on November 6th, but ignored the part about the GOP being too extreme, way too far to the right, too-- What's the word again? Oh yeah-- insane:

"We do have to do some things to fix this... We had some shitty candidates. We pissed away two seats."

Among other things, yes.

Here's the clip of the joke in context. Snap:

It's nice to have a president with a good sense of humor as opposed to say, a robot who lies, a la Mitt Romney.

Chris Matthew is in Charlotte, North Carolina and was just on MSNBC covering the Democratic convention. Here's what he said on the Martin Bashir show:

"Everyone here is having fun. I got the feeling in Tampa that it was a business convention. ... There's a real exuberance here."

About that 2008 vs. 2012 enthusiasm for Obama thing…

Clearly, there's still a whole lot of enthusiasm.

Quote of the Day- Patriotic American, Marilynne Robinson Version

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Compare this to what Mary Matalin and Lindsey Graham are peddling. By the way, didn't what Mittens is doing used to be called tax evasion?

Sitting just behind him during the speech was Marilynne Robinson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the novel “Gilead” and a teacher at the Iowa Writers Workshop at the University of Iowa.

In an interview before Obama’s speech, as Robinson and her son, James, stood in line, Robinson made an argument that mirrored the one the president would deliver. Her income exceeds the $250,000-per-year threshold, she said, but she’s happy to pay higher taxes.

“I’ve prospered a great deal from living in this country, from things like public education and so on,” she said. “I want to help other people also prosper and enjoy living in this country. As far as I’m concerned, it’s patriotism.”

Video Flashback Quote of the Day- Mitt Romney On Jobs In Massachusetts

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

"You guys are bright enough to look at the numbers. I came in and the jobs had been just falling right off a cliff, I came in and they kept falling for 11 months. And if you are going to suggest to me that somehow the day I got elected, somehow jobs should have immediately turned around, well that would be silly. It takes awhile to get things turned around. We were in a recession, we were losing jobs every month."

-- Mitt Romney, at a press conference in June 2006 saying reporters were unfair to hold him accountable for disappointing jobs data.

Totally taken from Taegan, but needs to be seen alot more. Talk about blatant hypocrisy.
