We are Republicans, and don't propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been Rum, Romanism, and Rebellion.
The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.Oscar Levant
In [the Irving Kristol] era, rather than being the "stupid party," Republicans became the party of ideas. Neoconservatism's task was, he said, to "convert the Republican Party and American conservatism in general, against their respective wills, into a new kind conservative politics suitable to governing a modern democracy."
You know, I want to just advise people watching at home playing that now popular drinking game of you take a shot whenever the Republicans say something that's not true: Please assign a designated driver.
Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work, and then they get elected and prove it.
If Republicans will stop telling lies about the United States, we will stop telling the truth about them.
I fully realize that every promise I make, the Republicans will double and the Democrats will redouble. They think this will make me vulnerable, but they don’t know I have some tricks up my sleeve, along with a box of raisins to munch on while I’m waiting for the returns to come in.gracie allen
What a pleasant lot of fellows they are. What a pity they have so little sense about politics. If they lived North the last one of them would be Republicans.chester a. arthur
To the cheater, there is no such thing as honesty, and to Republicans the idea of serving the public good is counterfeit on the face of it — they never felt such an urge, and therefore it must not exist.garrison keillor
Latins for Republicans - it's like roaches for Raid.john leguizamo
Republicans like Kentucky's Mitch McConnell were quick to defend Rice with trivia. (MCCONNELL): Her parents aptly named her Condoleezza, after the Italian musical term "con colcezza," which is a direction to play "with sweetness". (STEWART): Her last name is a starchy side dish, often served with beans. I vote 'yes'!mitch mcconnell
They [Republicans] say, 'You're too conservative.' Was Thomas Jefferson too conservative? I'm tired of some people calling me wacky.sharron angle
What we Republicans should stand for is growth in the economy. We ought to make the pie higher.george w. bush
"I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for."howard dean
"the Republicans are all about suppressing votes."howard dean
Moderate Republicans are reverse Houdinis . They tie themselves up in knots and then tell you they can't do anything because they're tied up in knots.barney frank
Early talk was that anti-Bush people would go see it and pro-Bush people would stay home, and that's not the case. Most people do not go around with labels. A lot of Republicans have open minds.Michael Moore
A free press is one where it's okay to state the conclusion you're led to by the evidence . One reason I'm in hot water is because my colleagues and I at NOW didn't play by the conventional rules of Beltway journalism . Those rules divide the world into Democrats & Republicans , liberals & conservatives , and allow journalists to pretend they have done their job if instead of reporting the truth behind the news , they merely give each side an opportunity to spin the news.bill moyers
[F]or more than three years this Congress, which has been given the name “The Do-Nothing Congress,” has turned a blind eye to the intractable war in Iraq, ignoring the Administration’s many mistakes, allowing it to stay a failed course. Here we are with six days left in the 109th Congress, and the Republicans, which control the House and the Senate and the White House, have not held one hearing, not one, into the President’s wartime failures.harry reid
I never use the words Democrats and Republicans . It's liberals and Americans.james g. watt
I have long enjoyed the friendship and companionship of Republicans, because I am by instinct a teacher and I would like to teach them something.
I'm not someone who thinks Republicans are always wrong and Democrats are always right.Elizabeth warren
I think what happened during the Great Depression was that African Americans understood that Republicans championed citizenship and voting rights but they became impatient for economic emancipation.rand paul
The Democrats just never learn: Americans don't really care which side of an issue you're on as long as you don't act like pussies. When Van Jones called the Republicans assholes, he was paying them a compliment. He was talking about how they can get things done even when they're in the minority, as opposed to the Democrats, who can't seem to get anything done even when they control both houses of Congress, the presidency, and Bruce Springsteen.
I never use the words Democrats and Republicans . It's liberals and Americans.
The Democrats have moved to the right, and the Republicans have moved to a mental hospital.
Why can't a Democrat get fired up about protecting the environment and enacting gun control legislation just as right wing Republicans get fired up about making sure that children have access to assault weapons and banning 'The catcher in the rye' and 'Harry Potter'?moby
