There Can Be Only Dumb

I've been reading A LOT of dumb quotes from politicians lately. So I wanted to post a few of the most dumb over the last few years.

  • "The affirmative task we have now, is to, um, create a new world order" -Joe Biden
  • "We have to pass the bill, so we can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy" -Nancy Pelosi
  • “Women — who make up nearly half of our nation’s workforce — face a pay gap that means they earn 23 percent less on average than men do. That disparity is even greater for African-American women and Latinas,” -Barack Obama (while still paying male WH staff more than female)
  • "The fact is we had four dead Americans! Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?" -Hillary Clinton
  • "This is not about politics. This is about these families and families all across the country who are saying let’s make it a little harder for our kids to get gunned down." -Barack Obama (emphasis added by me)
  • "They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." -Barack Obama
And just to prove I'm not completely bias;
  • "As president, I will create 12 million new jobs." -Mitt Romney (presidents don't do that)
  • "... read my lips, no new taxes." -George H W Bush
  • "We have a lot of work to do. It's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq-Pakistan border." -John McCain (They don't share a border)
