“With the U.S. under attack again, I ask myself: Do I feel more comfortable with Obama in the White House than I did with George Bush? Hands down, I felt better after 9/11 with George Bush than I do today with Obama. It is his weakness that allowed for this most recent attack.”

“Listen people, if Romney was president, we would be sending troops to Libya to fight another war with no end. His war mongering should be troubling to anyone.”

“I have not had a pay increase in four years. In fact, I had a 5 percent pay decrease two years ago. My insurance benefits have been reduced but my out-of-pocket cost for insurance has increased. My 401k is down, my savings and investments are down, and the value of my house is down. Four years ago, my income was higher and my cost of living was lower. No, I am not better off than I was four years ago.”

“Judging from the amount of money being poured into the GOP super-PACs, a lot of Republicans have been doing very, very, very well under Obama’s administration.”

“ ‘First I was for national health care before I was against; now I am in favor of some national health care. Next week, I don’t know what I will be for.’ — Twit Romney.”

“Once again, a police dog’s name will be added to the capitol K9 honor memorial, killed by the incompetency and neglect of his policeman partner.”

“Recently, the former Arizona House Speaker ran for the U.S. House. He ran against Matt Salmon, but lost. It’s hard to run a dishonest campaign and win. This was a very hard and costly lesson for Kirk Adams, but he will have eight years to repent and possibly try again.”

“House Republicans tried to repeal President Obama’s signature health care law for the 31st time in 18 months. Every vote to repeal or dismantle the law has predictably died upon or before reaching the Democratic-controlled Senate, but House Speaker John Boehner said, ‘We want to show people we are resolved to get rid of this.’ ”
