The Best Lines from the Convention (The Republican Convention, That Is)
Then check out John Hawkins collection of the 30 best quotes from last week's G.O.P. convention. They'll help a bit.
Here's my favorites. Which ones that John cites would make your list?
“None of us have to settle for the best this administration offers – a dull, adventureless journey from one entitlement to the next, a government-planned life, a country where everything is free but us.” (Paul Ryan)
“The only just government is the government that serves its citizens, not itself.” (Cardinal Timothy Dolan)
"They’ve got a Jobs Council that never meets. A Democratic Senate that doesn’t act. A President who doesn’t believe and a Vice President who won’t stop talking. They just don’t get it.” (Former Staples CEO Tom Stemberg)
“I’ve come to realize that Barack Obama is the tattoo president. Like a big tattoo, it seemed cool when you were young. But later on, that decision doesn’t look so good, and you wonder: what was I thinking? But the worst part is you’re still going to have to explain it to your kids.” (Tim Pawlenty)
“The man assumed office almost four years ago – isn’t it about time he assumed responsibility?” (Paul Ryan)
“Ronald Reagan used to say America was a city on a hill. Under Obama, America is becoming a tent city with people waiting in line for government handouts.” (Immigrant business entrepreneur Yash Wadhwa)
“Barack Obama’s failed us. But look, it’s understandable. A lot of people fail at their first job.” (Tim Pawlenty)
“The EPA is now the ‘Employment Prevention Agency.’” (Bob McDonnell)
