Who Said What? - Part 3

Another week and another peek at our favorite new game (that doesn’t have the word “poker” in it), Who Said What?
And here are today’s contenders … Vanna?

1) “Don’t you have to be a real ideologue, a real partisan to believe that one party’s more crooked than the other? In terms of - not in terms of ideas or of philosophy, but taking cash home with you and stuff like that?”
2) “The president, like everybody else, is bound by statutes that are enacted by Congress, unless the statutes are unconstitutional, because the Constitution takes precedence over a statute.”
3) “I wish the - not only the Democrats - but the Republicans would - begin to take stock of what they're doing to the family. You know, it’s been over a year now since the presidential election and Republicans have been in power in the House and the Senate and in the White House, and there is very, very little along the lines of what we’re talking about to show for it. There’s very little that has been accomplished that relates to social - conservative social issues: the pro-family agenda; the pro-moral agenda; the sanctity of life. There’s just nothing going on, and I know there are a lot of people out there that are pretty irritated at both parties, frankly, for that.”
4) “To say that we are closer to victory today is to believe, in the face of the evidence, the optimists who have been wrong in the past. To suggest we are on the edge of defeat is to yield to unreasonable pessimism. To say that we are mired in stalemate seems the only realistic, yet unsatisfactory, conclusion … It is increas¬ingly clear to this reporter that the only rational way out then will be to negotiate, not as victors, but as an honorable people who lived up to their pledge to defend democracy and did the best they could.”
5) “Most heartfelt, I thank my typewriter. My typewriter is a Hermes 3000, surely one of the noblest instruments of European genius.”
