Zitat des Tages von George Allen:
Election Day 2010 saw the culmination of years of aggravation and resentment toward a federal government that became disconnected and disdainful of the values and priorities of Americans.
In some ways, September 11, 2001, seems a long time ago. Yet we have done so much in only a few years, and we will continue to do so in the future, to prevent such attacks on America.
I have always advocated for funding and programs that increase our productivity and competitiveness.
I don't like talking about myself. I don't like talking about these introspective things.
The idea of reasoning with terrorists without force or with appeasement is naive, and I think it's dangerous.
We should favor innovation and freedom over regulation.
We are so appreciative of the men and women in uniform who are protecting us, whether in Afghanistan or Iraq or on ships around the world. For our security, they are taking the offensive to the terrorists overseas.
I rise today to offer a formal and heartfelt apology to all the victims of lynching in our history, and for the failure of the United States Senate to take action when action was most needed.
Trust free people and free enterprise as opposed to meddling, burdensome government.
We're going to hear a lot of spirited discussion about the President's plan in the next few days and weeks and that's fine as long as everyone comes ready to talk and not just snipe, complain and argue.
It is vital that the United States maintains open lines of communication with our allies. We must assure them of our commitment to eradicating global terrorism wherever it may reside or wherever it's given haven.
It's time for an American comeback... where leaders in Washington listen to 'we the people.'
I think you always have to be innovating and adapting and improving. You can't stay the same.
Most Americans recognize that whatever the government program is, no matter how essential it is, it's waste.
I like to motivate and inspire people.
