I don't have an eat your words/foot in mouth quote, but I have a great one to share...Especially in these times.

“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”

-John F. Kennedy

God I wish we had leaders that felt like this today.

It would be a grand step in the right direction to have anyone on
Pennsylvania Ave that could put those feelings into words again.
It's troubling how we've all been slipping...

EDIT:: And keeping to the OP, I was on my way home from work one
Friday afternoon and had just turned on the radio to my AM favorite:
"We begin bombing in fifteen minutes." Reagan.
Dutch had a way of conversely turning words into feelings: because
I suddenly had some very tan upholstery.

Reagan Quotes

Before I refuse to take your questions, I have an opening statement.

But there are advantages to being elected President. The day after I was elected, I had my high school grades classified Top Secret.

I have left orders to be awakened at any time in case of national emergency, even if I’m in a cabinet meeting.

It’s true hard work never killed anyone, but I figure, why take the chance?

I’m not smart enough to lie.

Facts are stupid things – stubborn things, I should say.

It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.

Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.

The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.

America’s best days lie ahead. You ain’t seen nothing yet

America is too great for small dreams

Double, no triple, our troubles and we’d still be better off than any other people on earth.

The deficit is big enough to take care of itself.


Some of those quotes I just like from him, some he did eat and others at this point would have him role in his grave if he could see the current mess.

Man it seems like ancient history to even think of the days of Reagan, but he did have a different way with words!

“And if you like your insurance plan, you will keep it. No one will be able to take that away from you. It hasn’t happened yet. It won’t happen in the future.”- BO

“First, I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits -- either now or in the future.” - BO

“That's the good thing as a President, I can, I can do whatever I want.” - BO

Funny thing is, the above quote is in direct opposition to this one:

“If, in fact, I could solve all these problems without passing them through Congress, I would do so.” - BO

"When Gov. Romney said we should just let Detroit go bankrupt, we said thanks but no thanks!"
-Barack Obama
