99694. You know, I respect what Howard Dean has been able to do. It’s good for our party. But I’ve got to tell you this: If money alone decided presidential nominations, Phil Gramm would have been nominated in ’96. – Joe Lieberman

99695. We need to ensure our men and women in uniform are equipped with the very best money can buy. We also have to make sure critical military technologies are developed in America and that the U.S. defense manufacturing base remains healthy and strong. – Joe Lieberman

99700. The way we’re really going to grow the economy is to invest in people, to invest in innovation, to have the federal government put money in the kind of research that will create the new high-technology, biotechnology industries that will create the millions of new jobs. – Joe Lieberman

99952. The people that make this country work, the people who pay on their mortgages, the people getting up and going to work, striving in this recession to not participate in it, they’re not the enemy.

99958. The press has met their Waterloo, and it’s Obama. – Rush Limbaugh

99959. Our nation was created in ways that allow human potential to prosper, and it created the greatest nation for people in the history of humanity.

99960. The message that President Obama delivered in his speech at Notre Dame was: morality is immoral. Pro-life is the extremist position, not a moral position.

99965. Poverty is not the root cause of crime. – Rush Limbaugh

99966. Obama’s health care plan will be written by a committee whose head, John Conyers, says he doesn’t understand it.

99984. After the Republican Party did everything that Colin Powell says it needs to do to grow, and nominated the very kind of candidate he wanted in 2008, what did Powell do? He endorsed Obama!

99985. Football is like life and I know life. – Rush Limbaugh

99986. Government stimulates the democrat party. – Rush Limbaugh

99987. Being stuck is a position few of us like. We want something new but cannot let go of the old – old ideas, beliefs, habits, even thoughts. We are out of contact with our own genius. Sometimes we know we are stuck; sometimes we don’t. In both cases we have to DO something. – Rush Limbaugh

99988. Let me tell you who we conservatives are: we love people. When we look out over the United States of America, when we are anywhere, when we see a group of people, such as this or anywhere, we see Americans. We see human beings. We don’t see groups. We don’t see victims. – Rush Limbaugh

99989. Folks, the most insidious part of this whole health care scheme is that all of these vast medical expenditures will become nothing more than government budget items. We individuals will no longer exist. The relationship between a government and citizen will change forever. – Rush Limbaugh

99990. If you commit a crime, you’re guilty. – Rush Limbaugh

99991. Liberal Democrats are inexorably opposed to tax cuts, because tax cuts give people more power, and take away from the role of government. – Rush Limbaugh

99993. I want anyone who believes in life, liberty, pursuit of happiness to succeed. And I want any force, any person, any element of an overarching Big Government that would stop your success, I want that organization, that element or that person to fail. I want you to succeed. – Rush Limbaugh
