What I'm not saying is that all government spending is bad. It's not - far far from it but there is no free lunch as a former colleague of mine used to say. There is no public tooth fairy. Father Christmas does not work on the Treasury staff this year. You can never bail someone out of trouble without putting someone else into trouble.
The Republicans need to work on registration and getting out their vote and their early voters and absentees. Grassroots stuff.
The flowery style is not unsuitable to public speeches or addresses which amount only to compliment. The lighter beauties are in their place when there is nothing more solid to say but the flowery style ought to be banished from a pleading a sermon or a didactic work.
It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact in every presidential election since 1950 - except Goldwater in '64 - the Republican would have won if only the men had voted.
This is pure speculation but for a period of time a lot of getting into a party was through fundraising and volunteer work and Republican women had more time to do that than democratic women who were out there getting jobs.
No men and women of the Irish race we shall not fight for England. We shall fight for the destruction of the British Empire and the construction of an Irish republic.
Women's Wear Daily can do more than any other publication to establish a designer.
Ageism works in both directions. As a teenager in the public eye people would talk condescendingly to me. When you get older there's this feeling that you have to start carving up your face and body. Right now I'm in the middle ground - I think women in their thirties are taken seriously.
The true republic: men their rights and nothing more women their rights and nothing less.
What Democratic congressmen do to their women staffers Republican congressmen do to the country.
The reason women don't play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public.
There's the conventional wisdom of which I have none where you get a record deal you get a publicist you get a campaign and you do the tour but none of that adds up to things like nuance and subtlety and dynamic.
No one ever found wisdom without also being a fool. Writers alas have to be fools in public while the rest of the human race can cover its tracks.
The extreme limit of wisdom that's what the public calls madness.
Public opinion is no more than this: what people think that other people think.
Wisdom stands at the turn in the road and calls upon us publicly but we consider it false and despise its adherents.
Well the wedding in the words of the Archbishop of Canterbury was a fairy tale and there was a huge public impress investment of goodwill affection and indeed money in this Institution. It was a huge success at the time.
On the publicity tour of 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding ' I was asked over and over again if as the writer I felt it was a fair depiction of real life to have someone of my er below average looks hook up with hottie John Corbett.
In every war zone that I've been in there has been a reality and then there has been the public perception of why the war was being fought. In every crisis the issues have been far more complex than the public has been allowed to know.
Republicans have been losing the war of words for years now. Now they are just caving because they don't even want to try. I don't agree with that approach.
Hurtling the Pentagon into an unprecedented budgetary meltdown is horrifically irresponsible. Obama doesn't care. This is war - not against the Taliban but war against the GOP. He has Republicans on the ropes and that's a victory he savors and desires - unlike Afghanistan where he seems only to want to turn tail.
I had very good support from Democrats and Republicans all throughout my administration. I had a very high batting average. We added more jobs per year in my four years than any other president since the Second World War.
There's no doubt that usually a president's public image is enhanced by going to war. That never did appeal to me.
For far too long we've allowed the other side to paint us as racist as sexist inhumane war mongers - well today as a conservative black Republican and former solider I'm here to set that record straight.
