QUOTES OF THE WEEK


"Find me one clip of me saying anything but great things about teachers. The union is purposely ginning up this mindset that (teachers) are under attack, they’re under siege --  I think unfortunately creating great fear and division among teachers and other public employees, with the whole idea (to) use this as an issue to try to leverage a change in the political leadership.”
Governor Walker 


"People are ready to move on. And I don’t just mean one party or another. I think just in general. The average citizen in Wisconsin I talk to, it’s like they’ve had it … They want us to be talking about jobs. They want us to be focused on that … And so having another political campaign -- it’s going to happen, it’s not like they can avoid it. But it’s not something they’re particularly interested in. When I talk to people, if that issue comes up, they’re like, ‘Can’t that just be over? ‘”
Governor Walker commenting about upcoming recall elections


"'Shovel-ready’ was not as shovel-ready as we expected."
President Obama


“We voted for our brother Barack, a beautiful human being with a sweet heart, and now he’s an assassin. They turned him into them. You talk about a man killing his own people. When you lie to the American people saying that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. When you lie and then take innocent young men who come to serve their country, and send them to die in Iraq and Afghanistan, over lies, that’s a murderer in the White House.”
Louis Farrakhan


"I think that one of the things the original Muppet movies did amazingly well, and it’s what Pixar does really well now, is that they don’t condescend to children by feeling like they have to dumb things down to the lowest common denominator. And when you don’t do that, you get a family film in its truest sense. And entire family can sit and watch and enjoy it. The worst equivalent is Barney the dinosaur, where parents are having to sit there while their kids watch this, and the parents want to blow their brains out."
Jason Segal who will star in a new Muppets movie coming out in November
