Quotes

"When CITGO sent me a letter and highlighted that the sanctions bill could jeopardize these jobs, I stepped in and blocked the bill," Landrieu said. "I strongly support holding the Venezuelan government accountable for its human rights violations, but we can dodo it in a way that protects these jobs and this refinery. With the united support of Republican and Democratic mayors, business, and labor, we will win this fight."
"Regional groups have a responsibility to put forward candidate countries that support the principles of the U N Charter, contribute to the Security Council's role in maintaining international peace and security, and uphold and advance human rights" said Kurtis Cooper, deputy spokesman for the U S mission to the United Nations
...are focused on the president and the president's party; the worse he is doing, the better for the party out of the White House," Ornstein wrote.

Meantime, for Senate Democrats, with a lot of incumbents up in tight races, votes on controversial issues are radioactive."
...of the United States, a detestable event because no one should meddle in our country," he said yesterday during a televised cabinet meeting. "I repudiate, reject, detest the interference of these sectors of the American ultra-right wing in our internal affair... and the even more detestable remarks of Jacobson."
