“Actually it's quite fun to fight them (Muslim terrorists), you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up (front) with you; I like brawling. You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them."

- Lt. Gen. James Mattis


“(T)here was nothing wrong with Lieutenant General Mattis' remarks. Hell, if given the chance to shoot and kill Osama Bin Laden, Al-Zarqawi or any of the other insurgents, you're damned right it would be a lot of fun. Might even be worth stuffing the head and mounting it on the wall.”

- Talk show host Neal Boortz


“The Senate has finally confirmed Alberto Gonzales as attorney general. The vote was 60-36, with only six Democrats voting ‘aye’. It boggles the mind that 36 Democrats would vote against the first Hispanic attorney general out of tender concern for the well-being of terrorists, but there you are.”

- James Taranto, Best of the Web, 2/4/05


“Senate Republican leaders have decided to begin their use of the ‘nuclear option’ -- forcing confirmation of President Bush's judicial nominations with a majority Senate vote -- on an African-American woman blocked by Democrats from a federal judgeship. Associate Justice Janice Rogers Brown of the California Supreme Court was one of 16 Bush nominees for U.S. appellate courts whose confirmation was prevented by Democratic filibusters in the last Congress.”

- Columnist Robert Novak


“President Bush next week will release his 2006 budget, requesting slightly more than $2.6 trillion in spending. That's $2,600,000,000,000. If a Democrat proposed a budget this big, Republican fiscal hawks would squawk to the top of the Capitol dome.”

- Stephen Moore, president of the Free Enterprise Fund (Read Moore’s full column, “Seven Rules for Cutting Government Spending,” on our “Issues & Answers” page at


“Senate budget-makers yesterday said President Bush’s goal to scale back or eliminate 150 programs has a slim chance of winning congressional approval.”

- Washington Times, 3/5/05 (NOTE: My “Muth’s Truths column tomorrow deals with this exact subject...and it’s going to depress the hell out of you. If you’re a “my-GOP-can-do-no-wrong” partisan flack, you might want skip reading it.)


“In his State of the Union speech Wednesday night President Bush, much in the manner of a reformed drunk telling the world of his reformation, promised to end his spending spree of the last four years. ‘America’s prosperity requires restraining the spending appetite of the federal government,’ he said—about four years too late. He boasted that the budget he will send to the congress this year will hold the growth of discretionary spending below inflation and stay on track to cut the deficit in half by 2009...

“Notice he’s not talking about the national debt which will continue to mount; he’s talking about the annual deficit, much of which can be blamed on the fact that he has never vetoed a spending bill. In other words, during Bush’s entire eight years in office he will never have had a balanced budget, meaning the only thing he can brag about is that in 2009 the deficit will be half as much as it is this year. Big deal.”

- Lyn Nofziger’s “Musings,” 2/4/05


“Every parent in America should be made aware of a presidential initiative called the ‘New Freedom Commission on Mental Health.’ This commission issued a report last year calling for the mandatory mental health screening of American schoolchildren, meaning millions of kids will be forced to undergo psychiatric screening whether their parents consent or not. At issue is the fundamental right of parents to decide what medical treatment is appropriate for their children.

“Forced mental health screening simply has no place in a free or decent society. The government does not own you or your kids, and it has no legitimate authority to interfere in your family’s intimate health matters. Psychiatric diagnoses are inherently subjective, and the drugs regularly prescribed produce serious side effects, especially in children’s developing brains. The bottom line is that mental health issues are a matter for parents, children, and their doctors, not government.”

- Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), “Texas Straight Talk,” 1/31/05


“With the media's sudden discovery of ‘values voters,’ another key component of the GOP coalition feels largely overlooked. Libertarian-leaning Republicans—the ones who put small government ahead of godly government—are beginning to wonder if they have a future in the party they have long considered their own.

“‘I think the problem they have at the moment is that they don't have a figure like Reagan to get behind,’ says Doug Bandow, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, a leading libertarian think tank. ‘If you're libertarian-minded, Bush has been a tremendous disappointment. [Libertarians] see social issues pushed to the forefront, and at the same time they see massive spending increases and government growth, and they're pretty dissatisfied.’

“Winning back libertarian loyalties while satisfying his social-conservative base could prove to be one of the trickiest political maneuvers of Mr. Bush's second term. And how well he executes that maneuver just might decide whether the Republican Revolution marches on after its general retires in 2008…

“Despite Mr. Bush's bigger-than-expected margin last November, a mass exodus by disaffected libertarians would likely doom GOP hopes for holding the White House in 2008. Evangelicals may have strengthened their hold on the Southeast and made gains in the Midwest, but libertarians still seem to be the backbone of the Republican Party in much of the West, thanks to the region's frontier mentality and its tradition of rugged individualism. Without winning back a single state east of the Mississippi, Democrats in 2008 could triumph by picking off two or three Western states that have trended increasingly Democratic of late.”

- World magazine columnist Bob Jones
