Zitat des Tages von Tom Daschle:
I've been amazed at the degree to which Democrats, in particular, have expressed their enthusiasm for the president's manner with which he handled this budget.
On issues relating to taxes, you don't always speak with one voice.
Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter.
When you're in the minority, it doesn't matter what you're agenda is, you're not going to have the degree of freedom that you have as a member of the majority.
Senators, like everyone else, want to feel a part of this decision-making process. They want to feel included.
Iraq is not the only nation in the world to possess weapons of mass destruction, but it is the only nation with a leader who has used them against his own people.
It would be nice if we could clear up the nominations that are still out there, and there are a lot of them.
President Bush has said that the economy is growing, that there are jobs out there. But you know, it's a long commute to China to get those jobs.
The campaign is over. It's time for the work of governing to begin.
It was important for us to be as supportive as our candidates and as our incumbent senators would have us be.
People were concerned about national security, and that precluded us from having the opportunity to break through on the issues that we cared most about - the economy, education and health care.
We have exhausted all of our diplomatic effort to get the Iraqis to comply with their own agreements and with international law. Given that... we have got to force them to comply, and we are doing so militarily.
This president failed so miserably in diplomacy that we are now forced to war.
What we need is not more distrust and division. What we need now is acceptance.
We know we're up against the wall. We know how difficult a challenge it is, being in the minority.
You've got two people that are well known in South Dakota, respected. We'll see how it all shakes out.
