    In fairness, all politicians make stupid statements. And we do too, but we don't have reporters following us around recording what we say.

    I found all the following on http://politicalhumor.about.com/

    ''It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There's a lot of -- I don't know what the term is in Austrian, wheeling and dealing.''

    ''Why can't I just eat my waffle?''

    ''What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith...''

    'The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.''

    ''Now, what we're doing, I want to be clear, we're not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that's fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money.''

    ''In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died -- an entire town destroyed.''
    (Actually only 12 people died.)

    ''The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.''

    ''We're the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad.''

    ''You're likeable enough, Hillary.''

    ''I've now been in 57 states -- I think one left to go.''

    ''No, no. I have been practicing...I bowled a 129. It's like -- it was like Special Olympics, or something.''

    ''Even though most people agree... I'm presenting a fair deal, the fact that they don't take it means that I should somehow do a Jedi mind-meld with these folks and convince them to do what's right.''

    ''When I meet with world leaders, what's striking -- whether it's in Europe or here in Asia...''
    (BO was in Hawai'i when he said this.)

    ''One such translator was an American of Haitian descent, representative of the extraordinary work that our men and women in uniform do all around the world -- Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard.''
    (Barack Obama, mispronouncing ''Corpsman'' (the ''ps'' is silent) during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, D.C., Feb. 5, 2010 (The Corpsman's name is also Christopher, not Christian))

    ''UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? It's the Post Office that's always having problems.''
    (Attempting to make the case for government-run healthcare, while simultaneously undercutting his own argument, Portsmouth, N.H., Aug. 11, 2009)

    I already posted a lot of these in the George Bush thread. I didn't want to start a new thread because it become a stupid "My guy is better than your guy" conversation. I'm not a republican. I'm an Independent vote who leans conservative. The fact is ALL politicians are fucking idiots.

    Nothing more need be said. He will be remembered for this quote and the one where he called ISIS "the JV squad".

    This was said in 2006 talking about George Bush raising the debt.

    "Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘‘the buck stops here.’’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
    I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit."

    That Time Gruber Said An Obama Campaign Promise Was Not Credible [VIDEO]

    Embattled MIT economist Jonathan Gruber once disagreed with a bold claim made repeatedly by then-Sen. Barack Obama on the 2008 presidential campaign trail that the average American family would save $2,500 on their premiums per year under his health-care plan.

    “We’ll work to lower your premiums by up to $2,500 per family per year,” Obama told an audience on Sept. 6, 2008. He made a similar claim at least 18 more times stump speeches during the campaign.

    But that was news at the time to Gruber, who later advised the Obama administration on the creation of Obamacare and is now at the center of a firestorm for candid remarks he made about how the administration duped the American public in order to get the health law passed.

    “I know zero credible evidence to support that conclusion,” Gruber told the non-partisan FactCheck.org in Feb. 2008 about proposals offered by Obama and his Democratic challenger at the time, Hillary Clinton.

    No one before has said it, and he really believed it.
