"Ronaldus Magnus went to Berlin and said, 'Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.' JFK went to Berlin and said, 'Ich bin ein Berliner.' John Kerry went to Berlin and said, 'In America, you have a right to be stupid.'"
"The Republicans are faced with the usual dilemma: Do they agree with Obama and the Democrats and be seen as compassionate, big-hearted lovers of people? Or do they, in their effort to try and save this country from destruction, be seen as the equivalent of heartless killers?"
