"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

“The most enthusiastic members of the Denver party believe that the country is finally, for the first time really, on their side. The nation’s and the party’s Left is both enlarged and inflamed. The shrewder ones, who are calling the shots, hope that the public will be sufficiently disaffected with the Republicans to tolerate or overlook their ideology. Thus the task before Obama and Biden this week is threefold. They must feign toughness on foreign policy and moderation on values. At the same time they must present their enthusiasm for bureaucracy as sympathy for the economic challenges of the middle class. They must persuade the country that they are not what they are: the most Left-wing ticket their party has run in 36 years. You can’t fool all of the people all of the time; 51 percent may be more feasible.” National Review
