Crisis in Ukraine
"These telephones that Obama and David Cameron were speaking on in these pictures, you can't buy them in the store. They're telephones that only exist for the purpose of world leader, serious phone call photo-ops. They're those old, heavy telephones with the cord. When Obama really talks to Cameron, he's using his cellphone on the golf course." -Mark Steyn

"USA Today reports that President Obama spent two days in Key Largo, 'a weekend of relaxation, golf, and calling world leaders about the Russian incursion into Ukraine.'

What country's ever going to believe us again?" -Rush

"America has the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world. All of the places that America thinks of as socialist basket cases have significantly lower corporate taxes than the United States. Federal regulation alone consumes 10% of GDP. That's just federal regulation, before you add in state and municipal and all the rest of it." -Mark Steyn
