Top 10 Re-Assigned Quotes For GOP Candidates


Sometimes we hear statements that end up so appropriate in another context. With that in mind, following are 10 quotes that could either be assigned to or come directly from the remaining GOP Presidential candidates.


Mitt Romney:

“Art is about making something out of nothing and selling it.”

~ Frank Zappa

*We figure that to have lasted this long, Mitt is clearly quite good at selling something even though we can see that there’s no substance there.*


Mitt Romney’s response to most questions — even when it seems that he has given an answer:

“There ain’t no answer. There ain’t going to be any answer. There never has been an answer. That’s the answer.”

~ Gertrude Stein (1874-1946)


Newt Gingrich:

 “The person that loses their conscience has nothing left worth keeping.”

~ Izaak Walton (1593-1683)

*I guess this means Newt’s worth nothing. Just sayin’.*


“You don’t have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your own ground. If you do, that shows how shaky your own position is.”

~ Red Haircrow

*I’m betting his ex wives, former colleagues and just about every member of the media has given this quote some thought.*


Ron Paul:

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

~ Dr. Seuss

*I’m thinking that, given all of these GOP debates, we’ve seen all we need to of you, Dr. Paul.*


 “You could have all the crazy thoughts you wanted, as long as you smiled and kept them to yourself.”

~ Mara Purnhagen


Rick Santorum:

“Christian virtues unite men. Racism separates them.”

~ Sargent Shriver

*Enough said.*


“Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood.”

~ Coretta Scott King


Bonus quote for Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Jon Hunstman:

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

~ Dr. Seuss


How do I sum all of this up? With food for thought directed towards those prospective voters who are still sitting on the fence:

“If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

~ Malcolm X
