    Campaigner-in-chief...We're looking for bipartisan solutions, not partisan rhetoric.
    -- Rep. Paul Ryan on Obama speech
    The president has announced he's running for president. Certainly there were elements of the campaign in [the speech], but I can't be critical of him. For every president that is up for reelection, politics do play a role in the things they tell the American people. It is what it is.

    I appreciate that the Donald wants to spend his resources in getting to the bottom of something that so interests him and many Americans...

He's paying for researchers to find out why President Obama would have spent $2 million not to show his birth certificate, so more power to him.

    We will definitely not burn the Koran...Not today, not ever.
    -- Terry Jones, of the Dove World Outreach church, 9/11/10
    It is not that we burn the Koran with some type of vindictive motive...We do not even burn it with great pleasure or any pleasure at all. We burn it because we feel a deep obligation to stay with the court system of America. The court system of America does not allow convicted criminals to go free.
    -- Terry Jones, after livestreaming the Koran's "trial"
    If you want to be technical, I guess we broke our word. We thought twice about it.
