QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Let me be clear. I do not want, nor will I accept, the nomination of our party. If no candidate has the majority on the first ballot, I believe you should only choose from a person who has participated in the primary. Count me out.”
Paul Ryan

“The system, folks, is rigged. It’s a rigged, disgusting, dirty system.”
Donald Trump who says there’s an attempt to steal the election from him

“The rules were set last year. Nothing mysterious –nothing new. The rules have not changed. The rules are the same. Nothing different.”
RNC chairman Reince Priebus said the rules that Trump is criticizing are “nothing new”

“Secretary Clinton was busy giving speeches to Goldman Sachs for $225,000 a speech.”
Bernie Sanders when asked at the Democratic debate to bring up an example of how Hillary Clinton has been swayed by donations from Wall Street

“He cannot come up with any example because there is no example.  I stood up against the behaviors of the banks when I was a senator. I called them out on their mortgage behavior.”
Hillary Clinton at the debate

“They must have been crushed by this. They must have been very very upset by what you did.”
Bernie Sanders responding to Clinton

“You know, Trump says in negotiations with the nefarious Chinese and Mexicans and Japanese, he’s going to win, they’ve been killing us, they’re so smart, but how is he going to win? He’s going to have the best people? Well, if you can’t handle the Colorado delegate selection process, how is he going to handle the nefarious Chinese?”
Syndicated conservative columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer took Donald Trump to task for his long-winded complaints about the delegate selection process

 “They chop off heads and they drown people in cages with 50 in a cage in big steel heavy cages, drop them right into the water, drown people and we can’t waterboard and we can’t do anything and we’re playing on different fields and we have a huge problem with ISIS, which we can’t beat. And the reason we can’t beat them is we won’t use strong tactics, whether it is this or other things. So, I think his comments are ridiculous. Can you imagine these ISIS people sitting around eating and talking about this country won’t allow waterboarding and they just chopped off 50 heads?”
Donald Trump reacting to a report that CIA Director John Brennan said his agency would not agree to using waterboarding as an interrogation tactic, even if ordered by a future president

“Hillary would beat him (Trump) from jail.”
Republican operative Tim Miller
