    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Barack Obama (via satellite): I don't think they are paying too much attention to this stuff. And the whole 'socialism argument' that doesn't seem to fly too well. The uh evidence of this seems pretty thin. I said today that I think they found proof that when I was in kindergarden I shared some toys with my friends and that is clearly a sign ... of subversive activity.
        Jon Stewart: Let me ask you ...
        Barack Obama (via satellite): Now, I tell you Jon that being on your program I think is further evidence of these tendencies, so...

      • Shep Smith (video clip): Why specifically is the vote for Barack Obama a vote for the death of Israel?
        Joe the Plumber (audio clip): The gentleman that approached me with that question you know I agreed to with what I know, uh, you know I just want to push that back to your listeners to go out there and find out why I would agree to something like that.
        Jon Stewart: ... you want the listeners to explain why you would agree? Well, I was listening to that and I have a reason, maybe ... because you're a symbol that in reality doesn't know what you're saying?
        Wrap it up Shep!
        Shep Smith (video clip): I just want to make this 100% perfectly clear. Barack Obama has repeatedly and demonstrated repeatedly that Israel will always be a friend of the United States no matter what happens once he becomes President of the United States, his words.
        Uh, the rest of it (shakes head) ... man! Some things ... it just gets frightening sometimes!

      • News video clip: They say she is quote "going rogue". Not following orders, speaking for herself, not running it past their people first.
        Jon Stewart: May God have mercy on our souls! Is that what going rogue is in politics, talking?
