QUOTES OF THE WEEK


"Well, you know, the truth of the matter is that as President of the United States I've got a lot of responsibilities, uhhh, I was supportive of Tom and, uh, had been supportive of Tom. Ahhh, but, obviously, uhh, I would like to have seen a different result…"
President Obama when asked by a Green Bay TV reporter why he didn't come to Wisconsin to campaign for Tom Barrett in the recall's final days.


"You’ve violated the public trust in my view by failing to perform the duties of your office. So, Mr. Attorney General it is with more sorrow than with regret and anger that I would say you leave me with no alternative but to join those who call on you to resign your office."
U.S. Senator John Cornyn to Attorney General Eric Holder at a hearing on Capitol Hill Tuesday.


“Over the next five months, this election will take many twists and many turns, polls will go up and polls will go down, there will be no shortage of gaffes and controversies that keep both campaigns busy and give the press something to write about. You may have heard I recently made my own unique contribution to that process.”

President Obama, speaking in Ohio


"This can't hurt. Is it the answer? Probably not. But I think it's a first step."
Rep. Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) talking about Governor Scott Walker's beer and brat summit.


"I refuse to be involved in what appears to be a media stunt," complained Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, who is running for Congress this fall in the 2nd Congressional District.Not to be outdone in opposing all things Walker, Rep. Kelda Helen Roys — also of Madison and Pocan's main competition for the 2nd District Democratic nomination — called for "meaningful compromise on policy rather than a photo opportunity."

The Wisconsin State Journal in its report on the summit.


“So technically, I could be caught with a joint in New York and be fined $100, but if I’m caught with a a Slurpee, it’s $200.”
Meghan McCain, referring to recent proposals from, respectively, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg
