"The tone of your speech yesterday suggested that Republican motives
for many of the actions they are taking are quite suspect. Do you sense
a mean spirit on Capitol Hill under Speaker Gingrich?"
-- To Al Gore, April 4, 1995.
"You called Gingrich and his ilk, your words, `trickle-down
terrorists who base their agenda on division, exclusion, and fear.' Do
you think middle-class Americans are in need of protection from that
-- To House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt, January 4, 1995 Today.
"Like Truman, Clinton has a long list of achievements that he can
point to -- including a robust economy, a crime bill, NAFTA, GATT. How
did Truman ultimately win credit for what he was doing?"
-- To Truman biographer David McCullough, December 12, 1995 Today.
"Republicans are looking to gut the Clean Water Act and also the
Safe Drinking Water Act. What are our options? Are we now forced to
boil water because bottled water is not an economically feasible option
for a lot of people?"
-- To NRDC lawyer Erik Olson, June 1, 1995 Today.
"We've got an awful lot to talk about this week, including the
sexual harassment suit against the President. Of course, in that one,
it's a little tough to figure out who's really being harassed."
-- Today, May 10, 1994.
"Do you give Bill Clinton credit for addressing serious issues that
went un- touched for 12 years -- deficit reduction, gun control, world
trade, health care? He has certainly taken on tough questions, and made
them not a question of if, but how much."
-- To Mother Jones Editor Jeffrey Klein, January 7, 1994.
"You're aligned to a party which owes many of its victories to the
so-called religious right and other conservative extremists who are
historically insensitive to minority concerns. That doesn't bother you?"
-- To Republican U. S. Rep.-elect J.C. Watts (R-OK), November 9, 1994.
