Quotes for our Times:
Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Townhall.com: Harris's interview with CNN leaves GOP wondering if she's VP or a college freshman.
Rather than give clear responses to [CNN’s Dana] Bash’s questions, the Republican National Committee panned the vice president for sounding like “a college freshman struggling to reach their book report’s minimum word count.”
On the issue of high gas prices, Bash wondered if there is “anything you can do to help bring down the cost.”
“Let’s just say that this is a very real issue, and, um, we have to do something about it and it’s one of our highest priorities as an administration,” Harris replied.
Larry O'Connor, radio host and political commentator: He did it, Joe!
Biden's presidency is an abject failure, even to voters in his party. Meanwhile, Trump's accomplishments continue to grow, culminating in SCOTUS decisions that ended Roe and secured the right to carry a firearm for self-defense and religious liberty for employees of state-run schools.
Joe can't dream of even coming close to what Trump has done. Boy, that's really gotta hurt.
Spencer Brown, managing editor for Townhall: Independence Day fireworks shows being canceled thanks to Biden crises.
As it turns out, Biden's failing policies — that caused the inflation and supply chain crises along with a lagging labor market that has yet to return to pre-pandemic participation levels — also mean cities across the country are unable to do their usual annual fireworks displays that are as American as apple pie due to 'staggering fireworks shipping costs and delays' as well as labor shortages. …
The AP noted that '[t]hose who plan to light up consumer-grade fireworks like bottle rockets, firecrackers and ground-level fountains at home can expect to pay more for them' and the 'American Pyrotechnic Association estimates that costs are up 35% across the industry.'
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and cohost of The Five: We discriminate against the burdensome.
Remember, as crime raged, New York put out an ad asking Floridians to move to NYC because it's less homophobic or something. The result? More people ended up moving to Florida because of crime.
Maybe blue states could create a new form of tourism. Want to kill your unborn? Go to New York. First, ride the subway. If you aren't tossed down a stairwell like a sack of potatoes, the clinic will take care of it for you. …
But the media wants you to think the country will erupt into unrest and violence. I don't think it will. The Night of Rage was a bigger bust than Disney's 'Light Year' because abortion just isn't that simple. There are millions of people out there who have strong feelings about it. They're just not out on the streets screaming it into your face.
