WEEKEND QUOTABLES

New Yorker 

Pres. Obama

"You've got a situation where they're not only entire states but also big chunks of states where, if we're not showing up, if we're not in there making an argument, then we're going to lose," Obama told NPR. "And we can lose badly, and that's what happened in this election." -- CNN
John Podesta, Clinton campaign chairman
"...you know I'm not saying that it's everybody else's fault. We bear responsibility for the outcome as well...So it will take a while. But I think we owe it to our supporters to say what we think we did right, what we think we did wrong. I think Wisconsin, we could have done better. There's no question about it... And-- but there's no question that we didn't make every right decision." 
Reporter Yamiche Alcindor responds
"What struck me most was the fact that he sounded really flustered when you asked [Podesta] about Wisconsin, and you asked him about their decision making within the campaign... He had all those other answers, but when it came to his own campaign and how it was run, he wasn't as strong." -- Meet the Press
 Thomas E. Mann, resident scholar at the Institute of Governmental Studies
“The old notion that somehow there are all these impostors out there, people not eligible to vote that are voting — it’s a lie. But it’s what’s being used in the states now to impose increased qualifications and restrictions on voting.” -- New York Times
Mitchell Robinson, MSU Prof
Let me explain why giving Betsy DeVos and school choice “a chance” is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea.-- Why we must NOT give Betsy DeVos and school choice “a chance”
Columnist Ryan Cooper
 Just look at how North Carolina Republicans kicked out the public and the press before passing their anti-democratic bills. They know what they're doing, and many are probably ashamed, deep down. They would wilt before a popular front of sufficient size and power. -- The Week

But spelling is not his main problem.
