The following are the most ridiculous quotes (some paraphrased) of 2011 so far....
#1 Muslim President Barack Hussein Obama: 'With this proposed budget (for 2011) I have kept my campaign pledge to cut the deficit in half during my first four years.' (FACT: Obama's deficit for February alone exceeded ANY year under GW Bush, even 2008 with the TARP money and fighting two wars!
#2 Hilliary Clinton 'I came here to Egypt to see for myself, and Egypt is stable.' (Two weeks before it collapsed!)
#3 Barack Obama: "We still have a long way to go, and my number one priority is to ensure we are doing everything we can to get the American people back to work."

#7 George Soros: "However, it is a sad fact that Western democracies provide less successful leadership than China."
#8 U.S. Secretary of State Hilliary Clinton: 'Al Jazeria is the only good news source.'
#9 Russell Mead, writing for the Council on Foreign Relations: "Sometimes those elites are right, and sometimes they are wrong, but their ability to win voter approval for policies that seem counter-intuitive is a critical factor in the American political system.
In times like the present, when a surge of populist political energy coincides with a significant loss of popular confidence in establishment institutions — ranging from the mainstream media and the foreign policy and intellectual establishments to the financial and corporate leadership and the government itself
— Jacksonian sentiment diminishes the ability of elite institutions and their members to shape national debates and policy."
#10 Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on the possibility for more quantitative easing: "In the end, we'll just ask the same questions. Where's the economy going, and what do various inflation indicators look like? We'll ask those questions. If unemployment is still too low, then we may continue. If we're moving towards full employment, then we won't need to stimulate more."
#11 Barack Obama: Addressing Libya, and being afraid to mention Qaddafi by name!
#12 Barack Obama, after congress voted on the 'Don't ask don't tell' several times, Obama promised us that 'now, I'm going to focus all my time on good jobs for Americans' . . . then he plays golf, fills out the NCAA Basketball tournament schedule for 50 teams, plays more golf, goes on vacation to India (at $200,000,000 A DAY!!!) plays more gold, attends the grid Iron dinner telling jokes, . . . where's those jobs???

#16 U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden to Afghan President Hamid Karzai: "We're not leaving if you don't want us to."
#17 General David Petraeus to U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates: "Welcome back, sir, you're flying a little bigger plane than normal ... you gonna launch some attacks on Libya or something?"

#19 Time Magazine: "U.S. counterterrorism officials have noted the disproportionate number of Libyans turning up in the ranks of al-Qaeda both in northern Africa and in Iraq."
#20 GM CEO Daniel Akerson: "China is clearly a crown jewel in the GM universe."
#21 President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta Dennis Lockhart: "The Fed, like every other central bank, is powerless to prevent fluctuations in the cost of living and increases of individual prices.
