Scary Lies and Just Plain Dumb Quotes by Republicans

Some Republican thoughts to ponder. My comments in blue

"We’ve got a Muslim for a President who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him," . As the Dallas Sun reported, the crowd responded with a loud cheer. -Hank Williams Jnr    Hmmm!! mentally still an angry irrational child

 But the Lord says, 'Be submissive wives; you are to be submissive to your husbands." -because God was speaking through him  Rep. Michele Bachmann   I wish I could convince my wife of this

 "I'm not familiar precisely with what I said, but I'll stand by what I said, whatever it was." —Mitt Romney Sounds entirely agreeable whatever it was.

"Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." -Rep. Michelle Bachmann I wonder why the ice caps are melting?

“If we took away the minimum wage-if conceivably it was gone-we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.”
—Michele Bachmann, Energy and Community Development Committee. January 2005 It's the Chinese solution

“You know what, evolution is a myth….Why aren’t monkeys still evolving into humans?” 
—Christine O’Donnell We need to talk to zoo keepers about this.

Christine O'Donnell "It is not enough to be abstinent with other people, YOU ALSO HAVE TO BE ABSTINENT ALONE. The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery, so you can't masturbate without lust."  She has a point here. Lust is very important. How does she know?

If we took away the minimum wage -- if conceivably it was gone -- we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level." Rep. Michelle Bachmann,  Not very original; this is an old tradition still; practised in most of the world. . The Koch Brothers recommend this for America and are footing most of the Tea Baggers bills so it must be right.

 "There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design."  Rep. Michelle Bachmann iIf you put a bunch of scientists in a room they will debate everything. But to be serious abut it, did the dinosaurs die off only five thousand years ago because there was no room in Noah's Arc?

"We needed to have the press be our friend ... We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported." Sharron Angle  Most politicians would agree with her

 "This president I think has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture....I'm not saying he doesn't like white people, I'm saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist." - Glen Beck  Glen must know a lot about the white culture of his strange friends. Obama is a polite guy but just maybe he doesn't like Glen Beck's friends:

"I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. ... No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus -- band -- Do, and I've lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, 'Yeah, I'd kill Michael Moore,' and then I'd see the little band: What Would Jesus Do? And then I'd realize, 'Oh, you wouldn't kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn't choke him to death.' And you know, well, I'm not sure." –responding to the question "What would people do for $50 million?", "The Glenn Beck Program, Michael Moore must have said a few things that offended Beck. Obviously he therefore has no right to live.

When I see a 9/11 victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, 'Oh shut up' I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining." –"The Glenn Beck Program," It must have been something he ate

"The only [Katrina victims] we're seeing on television are the scumbags." –"The Glenn Beck Program," Obviously poor and mostly coloured folk who got caught up in the lowlands.

 "Corporations are people, my friend… of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People's pockets. Human beings, my friend".- Mitt Romney If they shower you with millions to do their bidding why not pretend they are citizens and call them your friends.

“American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains.”
—Christine O’Donnell Obvious that Democrats are doing this to turn them into Tea Baggers

The exact phrase ‘separation of Church and State’ came out of Adolph Hitler’s mouth, that’s where it comes from. So the next time your liberal friends talk about the separation of Church and State, ask them why they’re Nazis.”
—Glen Urquhart, the Tea Party-backed Republican nominee for the Delaware House seat held by Rep. Mike Castle, April 2010 This proves that Demcrats are Nazis!!

T]he reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand." –Paul Ryan That explains it all - deregulation, bank buubbles; hedge fund scandals and the 1%

Chuck Devore: "We have to prepare for the next enemy. It's not Afghanistan. It's the PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. Makes sense: Enemies=military spending=wars=profits=flag waving support

Trent Franks on Obama: "He has no place in any station of government and we need to realize that he is an ENEMY OF HUMANITY." Of course he is, as are all Democrats. Trent is a Repug Congressman who knows his enemy

Glen Urquhart: "The exact phrase 'separation of Church and State' came out of Adolph HItler's mouth, that's where it comes from. So the next time your liberal friends talk about the separation of Church and State, ASK THEM WHY THEY'RE NAZIS." Canada, the UK and European nations and the US Founding Fathers separated Church and State before Hitler was born. Glen is a bit weak on history but most senators are.

Kristi Noem on driving (she has received 30 tickets and multiple arrest warrants for skipping court): "OBVIOUSLY, I'M NOT PROUD OF MY DRIVING RECORD, but I've been working hard to be a better example to young kids and young drivers out there" Nominated the "hottest freshman representative (Repug) obviously with a bit of a character flaw

Lamar Smith Repug congressman: "The greatest threat to America is not necessarily a recession or even another terrorist attack. The greatest threat to America is a LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS." Those liberals hate our America and must be stopped. Sounds like a Texan Tea Bagger

Joe Miller on GUNS AT HIS RALLIES: "It's not unusual in political rallies, it's not unusual in parades, to see that type of thing.; He is a Repug from Alaska and there are a lot of bears to shoot up there. A true Tea Bagger he says we should carry a gun everwhere. Unfortunately he lost in the election.

 Rand Paul on health care: "The fundamental reason WHY MEDICARE IS FAILING is WHY THE SOVIET UNION FAILED -- socialism doesn't work And that is why it is failing  in socialist countries like Canada, the UK, Norway, Luxembourg, Singapore and Germany.  Rand Paul is an inspired Libertarian so how can we disagree with his profundity.

The leader of the Mississippi Tea Party is calling on God to save the country from "criminal invaders" following the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the health care reform law.
Roy Nicholson, chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party, posted a statement on the group's website Friday saying that the court's 5-4 decision has "killed" the "constitutional republic" and that a "dictatorial junta" of "criminal invaders" is now controlling the federal government. He fears that a "banana republic" is coming next.Wow!! this is frightening Frankly if the Tea Baggers have their way the US will be well on the way to becoming a banana republic so what's the problem?

  Here is an earlier blog about Scary Bible quotes applied to the law that explains the logic(???!) and self-righteous indignation of so many devout Tea Party members.
