Quotes of the Day

"You know the president says that the American people 'can't wait' on jobs. Well guess what -- we agree wholeheartedly with the president.

"The Keystone pipeline project will create tens of thousands of jobs immediately. It has bipartisan support in the House and Senate. It's pretty clear that the president's decided to push this decision off for a year -- conveniently until after his next election. Well the American people 'can't wait,' as the president said, and at a time when the American people are still asking the question 'Where are the jobs?' I think this is a bipartisan proposal that the president ought to endorse."

Speaker John Boehner


"Meanwhile, in prepared testimony, Jon Corzine told the House Agriculture Committee that he was "stunned" to learn that more than $1 billion of investors' funds were missing. Where have I heard that before? Right -- that was Chris Christie who said he was stunned to learn just after taking office that Jon Corzine had left him with a $2.2 billion deficit.

Corzine clearly has a history of losing people's money. When Corzine says he's "stunned" by missing money, there is a bit of a credibility issue at stake here."
