Quotes for our Times:
Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner: Sounding the alarm over Joe Biden.
What is perhaps more newsworthy now is that the media institution most respected among Democrats, especially Democratic opinion leaders, has so frankly put the spotlight on Biden's problems. From a Democratic perspective, it is one thing when Republicans complain about Biden. It is another when The New York Times does it. And now everyone, except perhaps the most dogged Biden loyalists, is alarmed about the state of Joe Biden.
Leah Barkoukis, online features editor at Townhall.com: Biden focuses on the wrong number in NYT survey showing majority of dems want someone else in 2024.
He was then presented with the percentage who said they wanted someone else, but he pushed back, focusing on a different figure in the poll showing that 92 percent of Democrats would vote for Biden if the alternative was former President Trump.
“Read the poll. Read the polls, Jack. You guys are all the same. That poll showed that 92 percent of Democrats, if I ran, would vote for me,” Biden replied.
Mercedes Schlapp, Senior Advisor to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.: Jill Biden's 'breakfast tacos' remark was not a gaffe. It was intentional and will drive Latinos to the GOP.
Let’s set the record straight: Jill’s rehearsed speech was out of touch, insulting and derogatory towards Hispanics. The problem is even deeper than just her words. It starts with the fact that she spoke at the LatinX incluXion luncheon. The vast majority of Hispanics reject the term 'LatinX.' Yet the Democrats insist on forcing their language doctrine on the Hispanic community. What will come next? LatinX Hispanic Heritage Month?
Rep. Jason Smith represents Missouri's 8th Congressional District and is the Republican leader of the House Budget Committee: Biden’s secret spending is reshaping America and burying us under mountains of debt.
Biden’s decision to reject the executive roadmap handed to him by Trump shows that he is more interested in carving out a legacy for himself than slashing the government spending and red tape that led to his inflation crisis.
If Biden put down his pen long enough to pick up a newspaper, perhaps he would see that his approach of governing by executive fiat is failing American families.
Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight: Fossil fuels are the thing that make the US a rich country – but Biden doesn't care.
Problem is, he doesn't know anything about refining or extracting or how the grid works or anything about anything because he's never had a real job because he's worked for the federal government since he was in his twenties. None of these people have any experience doing anything. Again, most of them can't drive in manual transmission. So, to get a lecture on the power grid or energy from people who have no idea what it is is a bit much and the topic is too important to continue to listen to their nonsense as we become poorer. And by the way, as the rifts just beneath the surface in American society are exacerbated by that poverty, as GDP drops, societal tension rises. It's dangerous.
