    Well said

    A thread for political quotes and remarks which have impressed you. I tried this thread before and it went cattywampus. So trying again. I'll start with:



    Well, the American people need to ask a very simple question: If these contributions from Wall Street and other powerful special interests have no influence over the candidate, why are these special interests making huge campaign contributions? -- Bernie Sanders

    "I have no more campaigns to run..." Applause and chants start from the GOP in the house... "I know, because I won both of them!" - Barack Obama, State of the Union (one of the most epic drop mic moments ever)

    From Emperor Hirohito's national speech after the A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki:
    "The war situation has developed not necessarily to Japan's advantage."
    One of the greatest understatements of all time, in my opinion.

    Campaign talk tells people who you want them to think you are. How you vote tells people who you really are inside. -Zell Miller

    FDR:

    Governments can err, Presidents do make mistakes, but the immortal Dante tells us that divine justice weighs the sins of the cold-blooded and the sins of the warm-hearted in different scales. Better the occasional faults of a Government that lives in a spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a Government frozen in the ice of its own indifference.

    FDR:

    There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.

    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. --H. L. Mencken
