Outrageous Quote of the Week 12/8/07

Reported by Chrish - December 9, 2007 -

Dick Morris won in a surprise upset last week, for saying that if Hillary Clinton changed her schedule over the next few days in light of the hostage situation at her New Hampshire office, she would be seen as being "weak in the face of terrorism." To vote in this week's slew of sludge, jump!

Option A: "The only thing Congress should try to do is cut taxes, kill terrorists and cut spending. That's it." Michael Ozanian, National Editor of Forbes magazine in a discussion about Congress taking action to curb global warming, Forbes on Fox, 12/8/07

Option B: "This isn't a complex issue. Homeland Security must be notified any time an illegal alien is arrested, period. ... And we should not vote for any presidential candidate who doesn't support the immediate confinement of criminal aliens." Bill O'Reilly, The O'Reilly Factor, 12/5/07

Option C:The media is being "extraordinarily too negative. Incomes have been growing rapidly for the past three years. Now, how many times have you heard that we're actually in a six year expansion and really in a 25 year super-boom, the anniversary of which was last November? You don't hear it. It's not surprising to me that people are so down." Jim Pethokoukis of U.S. News & World Report, Your World w/Neil Cavuto, 12/7/07

Option D: "The good news is that U.S. intelligence now believes Iran stopped trying to develop a nuclear weapon a few years ago. Apparently that information was gathered just this summer from sources within Iran.

So if that's true, it takes some of the urgency away from a confrontation with the Iranian mullahs. The USA certainly does not need another conflict right now with our troops tied up in Iraq and Afghanistan. The bad news is that anti-American people will use the new intel to mock the USA and diminish the threat from radical Islam. You have to understand that there are Americans who despise heir own country, feel the USA is the cause of terrorism in the world. " Bill O'Reilly, The O'Reily Factor, 12/4/07

Option E: "Quiet and depressed is a vast understatement. The mall shooter was angry, malevolent, psychotic, and a common criminal with a gun who was too much of a coward to go to prison for what he had done. ... The warning signs should have told somebody to lock him up. They could force-feed him his meds. They could give him a lobotomy. They could keep him under lock and key forever. ... With all due respect to those who think these baby-faced killers need help, I'll volunteer. I'll help walk them to a jailhouse door. I'll help them to a high window to jump out of. I'll help them lift a pill to their lips and gulp it down. But I won't help them clean up their reputations with phony sympathy for their alleged plight." John Gibson, The Big Story, 12/6/07

Option F: "A few years ago there was a movement to wipe out all vestiges of Christmas in the public square. If I had not done that campaign, the forces of darkness would have won. But we won, and to diminish what we did is wrong." Bill O'Reilly, The O'Reilly Factor,
