QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“You go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places. But you have to ban it. There has to be some form of punishment.”
Donald Trump on abortion. He later recanted.

“The Trump campaign hasn’t really gotten out of first gear, but the Cruz campaign is starting to accelerate.”
Brad Wyatt, a longtime GOP party activist

“They’ve got to get their s— together in Wisconsin. If he Trump) doesn’t have 1,237, I’d be very concerned with what happens in Cleveland.”
A top Trump ally in the South quoted by POLITICO
“Every Trump supporter should be ostracized–especially those in politics, the media, and leadership. Failing to stop the cult of personality is as bad as swearing allegiance to it.

“Donald Trump, as a cult leader, could do more damage to America than any president in our history. It’s time to stop pretending.
Steve Berman, writing on The Resurgent

“The party can no longer suffer the vanity of a candidate who believes he can be the choice of a contested convention after last place finishes in state after state. Why on earth would delegates looking to stop a Trump nomination select a candidate whose presence in the race at this point only serves to make a Trump nomination more likely?”
An Ohio Republican quoted by POLITICO on John Kasich. Kasich is from Ohio.

“I was eating pizza before that reporter was born.”
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, joking with members of the press who gave him a hard time for eating pizza in New York City with a fork

“It’s worth asking ourselves what each of us — as politicians or journalists, but most of all, as citizens — may have done to contribute to this atmosphere in our politics.
President Barack Obama, criticizing politicians and the media’s coverage of them at an award ceremony for political reporting
“You got to think about your kids. You have an eight-month-old? You want your child to be visiting you in prison?”
Jerry Thompson, a detective with the High Point, N.C., Police Department, talking to a man arrested for domestic violence. As part of the city’s so far successful approach to reducing domestic violence that’s being replicated around the country, Thompson visits every offender in jail.
