Political Aspirations!

As we enter 2016, the political landscape, which has already been simmering a bit, will soon erupt in a frenzy of campaigning as we continue to work our way to the election in November.  So, I feel it is most appropriate to share a few political oxymoronica . . . enjoy!

“Anybody that wants the presidency so much that he’ll spend two years organizing and campaigning for it is not to be trusted with the office.”  (David S. Broder)

“Democracy means government by discussion, but it is only effective if you can stop people talking.”  (Clement Atlee)

“The trouble in modern democracy is that men do not approach to leadership until they have lost the desire to lead anyone.”  (Lord Beveridge)

“Nobody believes a rumor here in Washington until it’s officially denied.”  (Edward Cheyfitz)

“Mothers all want their sons to grow up to be President, but they don’t want them to become politicians in the process.”  (John F. Kennedy)
