Obama not No. 1 in other ratings
"In just a few years in office, Sen. Obama has accumulated the most liberal voting record in the Senate."
With two notable exceptions
"I've supported every investigation (into Hurricane Katrina) and ways of finding out how – what caused the tragedy. I've met with people on the ground. I've met with the governor."
McCain's off on Iraq details
"We have drawn down to presurge levels. Basra, Mosul and now Sadr City are quiet and it's long and it's tough and there will be setbacks."
To score a point, McCain misses the point
Rev. Wright said "that al-Qaida and the American flag were the same flags."
One major tax cut, then lots of raises
After Reagan took office, "we didn't raise taxes and we didn't cut entitlements. What we did was we cut taxes."
Not enough to matter
If the U.S. stops adding to the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, it "will lessen worldwide demand for oil" and reduce prices.
Actually, not so very large
In the Florida Republican primary, "we got a very large percentage of the, quote, conservative vote."
Romney won't mention a date
Mitt Romney wants "to set a date for withdrawal" from Iraq.
More costly than expected, but no debt
Romney left Massachusetts "with a $245-million debt because of the big government-mandated health care system."
McCain picks and chooses in attack on Clinton
Sen. Clinton said "the surge of troops in Iraq was 'working.' Now.... Sen. Clinton says the surge 'has failed' and that we should 'begin the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops.'"
