QUOTES OF THE WEEK

Russ Feingold “must be about the last American who thinks Hillary Clinton is trustworthy.” She had a “decades-long record of corruption” and that she exhibited “grossly negligent and unbelievably reckless behavior. She’s completely disqualified for being president.”
US Senator Ron Johnson in a debate with Feingold Friday night

“It’s my view that supporting Donald Trump is completely irresponsible and that no one should really do it after they’ve seen the fact that he’s simply isn’t qualified to being president.”
Feingold during his debate with Johnson Friday night

“NBC had tape 11 yrs. Apprentice producer says they have more & worse. So why not release in 2015? In March? Why wait till October?”
Ted Cruz on release of Donald Trump video where Trump makes lewd comments

“Yeah, it was crude. Yeah, it was vulgar. But you know, in my many, many years on this planet, I’ve heard from many men in public office a lot worse than what he said on that tape. And men do speak that way. He is right. It is locker talk.

“Did it make Donald Trump look kind of bad? Yes, of course it did. But the very people, including many, many Republicans, who got on their high horse, their self-righteous high horses about this, are the same guys who turn on pornography when they are traveling in Marriott hotels, and who often sleep with their secretaries on Capitol Hill, and do many more, worse things than Donald Trump has done in his life.”
Ed Klein, author of the new book Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation

“You know, with prior Republican nominees for president, I disagreed with them. Politics, policies, principles. But I never questioned their fitness to serve. Donald Trump is different. He has said that the video doesn’t represent who he is. But I think it’s clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is.”
Hillary Clinton at the debate

“It’s just words, folks. If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse, mine are words, and his are action.”
Donald Trump at the debate

“And I’ll tell you what – I didn’t think I’d say this, but I’m going to say it, and I hate to say it, but if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation.”
Donald Trump at the debate

“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”
Hillary Clinton at the debate

“Because you’d be in jail.”
Donald Trump responding

“She lied. Now she is blaming the lie on the late great Abraham Lincoln. Honest Abe never lied. That’s the difference between Abraham Lincoln and you.”
Donald Trump at the debate

“Donald Trump took the debate to what matters – the economy, national security, radical Islam, Supreme Court appointments, and Clinton corruption.”
Gary Bauer, Former presidential candidate, Chairman of the Campaign for Working Families and former Domestic Policy Advisor to President Ronald Reagan

“For Donald Trump, his themes of growth, the rule of law, breaking the china in DC and defeating radical Islam carried the night. Mr. Trump clearly established he will disrupt the status quo and business as usual if he is elected the next President of the United States. He made it clear that Mrs.Clinton would be a third term of the failed policies of President Obama, from Obamacare, to his failure with ISIS, his war on coal, the working class and the Constitution. The SCOTUS was effectively reestablished as a game changing issue. Mr. Trump is not an Evangelical or a rock ribbed conservative but he is clearly our best choice for making appointments to the Court that will protect religious liberty!”
Ken Blackwell, Chairman, Constitutional Congress, Inc.

“Raddatz and Cooper’s reputation as biased, partisan media operatives is clear for all to see. Both moderators repeatedly interrupted and challenged Trump, and caressed Hillary throughout the night. Trump called them both on their bias and it’s plain for the American people to see at this point, the media are all in 100% for Hillary. Raddatz’s performance was especially egregious. She oozed contempt and it was there on the national stage for everyone to see.  Trump was right when he said it was one against three, but he prevailed nonetheless.”
L. Brent Bozell III, President and Founder, Media Research Center

“Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests.”
Paul Ryan

“Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee.”
Donald Trump in a tweet
