Vice President Joe Biden (L)

Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly (R)

2. “The genius of America is the free enterprise system and freedom and the fact that people can go out there and start a business, work on an idea, make their own decisions”

3.  “Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history.

President Dwight Eisenhower (R)

Senator Ted Kennedy (L)

4. “Every nation has to either be with us, or against us. Those who harbor terrorists, or who finance them, are going to pay a price.”
