Dick Morris Quotes





"Spontaneous combustion of grassroots politics is the future."

"Public-opinion polls show that Americans split about evenly on civil unions. But when the words "gay marriage" are presented, they break 3-to-1 against it."

"America never loses wars on battlefields. We lose them in the streets, at home, when people turn against a foreign war."

"Democrats are not about to nominate anyone who backs the tax cut, and Americans are not going to elect anyone who favors a tax increase."

"But on abortion, the only thing liberals and conservatives agree on is that they can't stand those who would flip-flop on this moral issue, adjusting not only to the political winds but also to the geographic area in which they are running at the moment.

Before Clinton and Schumer criticize this policy, they'd do well to reflect on the fact that the Brooklyn Bridge might well be rubble, with thousands dead, if Bush did not use these wiretaps."

"While the United States was built to absorb people from other lands, France was never designed to accommodate immigrants. Its system was built only for the French. For many, the system seems ideal. French men and women get free health care and education. Almost all employees get the same kind of job security against dismissal we only give our civil servants. Workers are guaranteed extensive vacation, good pay, and limits on the work week."
