About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Responses - Who said it? - Quiz

Responses flooded in re the subject quiz such as “correct answers to all – BO” & “I always said Carol is a very bright person. Did I read the last paragraph correctly – Republicans conceding election to BO???” The Republicans have not conceded the election to BO but I am getting close to. More on this in the next posting.

Other fun responses – “After the first 7 questions I scrolled to the bottom to confirm my thoughts, it was BO,” & “Hi Doug - I just got a couple of them correct, mainly because I rarely listen to BO's many, many, many speeches!” & “Who else but BO ? Would I be wrong in assuming that every one of these quotes was uttered without the use of a teleprompter? The man can't string a sentence together unless he is reading it off a script.” I think you get the message of the responses received.

One very substantive response came from a FairTax supporter, former congressional candidate, & long time reader of these messages – “Hi Doug - Hope you and Carol are well and Happy New Year. Do you have the backup on when and where he said this? I would love to use it in my talks but I would need the backup verification. Thanks.”

The rest of this post documents that the quotes were made by BO. You can start with another response from a subscriber who wrote “Somehow I knew all the quotes were by BO, and surprisingly, I even remembered hearing most of them!” I remember many of them also.

The original Quiz came from our SC businessman who is a very reliable provider. Also you can click on this link which attributes all ten of the quotes to BO. I specifically recall hearing the one re the 57 states during the campaign of 2008  & the one about the 129 bowling score & special Olympics being said on the Tonight Show on March 19, 2009. Several sources reported the Israel quote in July 2008. The one re fallen Memorial Day warriors being in the audience – just click here to hear it yourself.

Taking the others one by one just click below as indicated for verification:

"What they'll say is, 'Well it costs too much money,' but you know what? It would cost, about. It it would cost about the same as what we would spend.”

"The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system."

“You gave them treatment early and they got some treatment, and a, a breathalyzer

“The vital task of applying principles put to paper more than 20 centuries ago ."

“There's a lot of I don't know what the term is in Austrian” - April 04, 2009 - At a news conference after BO’s debut on the international stage.
I found documentation that the quote about “I have made good judgments in the future" is also attributed to Dan Quayle & John Kerry so I would not use this one in any presentations attributing it solely to BO. BTW - With re to John Kerry, who portrayed himself as an intellectual when he ran against Bush, his grades @ Yale were actually lower than Bushes’. Source – WSJ article entitled C Man In The Navy.

Finally, click on these two links to get even more quotes from BO:
