Dumbest Quotes from the GOP Candidates

By December 13, 2011

Follow me on:

Dumb Republican Quotes A roundup of the most ridiculous things said so far by the 2012 Republican presidential candidates:

"There's no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate." --Newt Gingrich, explaining why he cheated on his first two wives

"Corporations are people, my friend... of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People's pockets. Human beings, my friend." —Mitt Romney to a heckler at the Iowa State Fair who suggested that taxes should be raised on corporations as part of balancing the budget

''I will tell you: It's three agencies of government, when I get there, that are gone: Commerce, Education and the -- what's the third one there? Let's see. ... OK. So Commerce, Education and the -- ... The third agency of government I would -- I would do away with the Education, the ... Commerce and -- let's see -- I can't. The third one, I can't. Sorry. Oops.'' --Rick Perry, experiencing an epic onstage meltdown during a GOP debate, forgetting his plan to abolish the Department of Energy

Your only problem with poking fun at Mitt Romney’s comment regarding corporations is that he was correct in what he was saying You and most of the dweebs who want to punish success don’t want to admit that corporations are owned by people–the taxes on corporations pay come out of people’s pockets and any profits they take out of the business is taxed again.

Yes, corporations are made up of people and they are the ones who profit. They should. But when people are losing their jobs, these people are still making 60 million a year. They are making 60 million a year because that is what the shareholders said they should make by making all the cust and there by increasing profits. Why should they pay 6 million for 60 million when we make thirty thousand and pay out 5 thousand? How does that balance? And then we lose our job because the jobs are going overseas, who makes up for that loss? Not the big guy!!!

(5) Nehemiah III says:

a corporation is a tax business separate from a persons personal tax. Anyone can start one and it the taxes on corps do not come out of peoples pockets, because you pay yourself from the corp. If the corp fails you can always start a new one cause it doesn’t effect your personal credit. there are also many tax breaks for corparations

corporations are not people, they are entities. taxing corporations is not punishment, it’s a payment for participating in democracy. also, all corporations have stock holders from all over the world. do we really want foreign influence in American elections and policies?

(8) John says:

Corporations are an important part of our society but they have not always served us well. Need we remember Enron, Tyco, Lincoln Savings and Loan, Fannie Mae (it is a public traded corporation), Countrywide or many of the other corporations that served to enrich a small number of people to the disadvantage of the rest of society.

We should praise the companies like Dell, Apple, IBM or others that have tried to provide good products and live within a competitive environment.

The lack of moral integrity among many business leaders – need I mention Madoff. Lay, Johnson, Raines and Skillings – have necessitated the need for regulation. Regulation is a response to bad and devastating behavior.
