"Ideas and substance have consequences, and you reacted to that in the Cantor race. You reacted to principle, you reacted to substance, you reacted to ideas. I think this is totally understandable and I think it's just an indication of a wave that is on tap for November for incumbents of both parties."
"I think Eric Cantor was in trouble no matter what, because of substance, because of ideas. Ideas matter. Ideas and substance have consequences, and Eric Cantor just learned them."
"Nouri al-Maliki asking for American air support in Iraq gives Obama another political opportunity to blame Bush. And that is an opportunity they just can't pass up. It's too juicy."

Hayward says one of the reasons Obama would do it would be to goad the Republicans into finally getting serious about trying to impeach him."
"If you understand liberals, you understand that everything is viewed through the prism of politics. So Nouri al-Maliki asking for air support to beat back Al-Qaeda insurgents is immediately calculated as a political move by Obama and everybody on the left. It's not about human rights. It's not about saving the women and children. It's not about saving a war torn country. And, sadly, it's not about standing up for US policy."
"I think the most confusing thing for people about the Tea Party is the word 'party' in it. There is a Democrat Party, and there is a Republican Party, but there is no Tea Party in the same sense. So who are they? Who are these people that say they're in the Tea Party?"
"Even when I don't say anything, I get credit for it. Even when I don't do anything, I get credit for it -- or even when I don't say anything or do anything, I get blamed for it. It happens."
