Quotes from the news wire:
Remember what I said yesterday. I said that I am monitoring this on a regular basis and I will make the decision that is the appropriate decision I have to make when I have to make it, so we have another weather call in about two hours and I'll make a decision at that time as to what I'm going to do as we get a better handle on it.
The fact though is that we want our kids not to have to decide which bathroom they get to go in. And not to be subject to peer pressure about which one to go in. And not to be subject to the embarrassment that could come with going in a bathroom where somebody maybe doesn't agree that they should be in there or not, why do we do this to our children? It doesn't make any sense. So I don't know. I'm the common sense guy from New Jersey, you know, I don't think life needs to be this complicated. I think it needs to be a lot more straightforward.
Life is confusing enough right now for our children, think about those kids in Los Angeles who last week had their entire district closed because of a threat. Think about what they felt like the next day when they went back to school. Did they feel completely comfortable, did they feel like they were safe? How did their mothers and fathers feel when they sent them to school that day? And now today the Nashua schools are closed, based on a threat as well. How are those kids going to feel when they go back to school?

Because this President has run up more debt than any president in American history, that debt has been given to us in large measure by the Chinese, and so now, as the Chinese markets tend to have a correction, which they're doing right now, it's going to have an even greater effect because this president doesn't know how to say no to spending, doesn't know how to say no to a bigger and more intrusive government.
It's bad decision-making by Gov. Bush, but I'm not running his campaign, this should've been handled by Gov. Bush the same way it's been handled by any of the other candidates who understand how to do this, which is to say, 'Listen, if we knew then what we knew now we wouldn't have gone into Iraq.'.
I promise you that over the next few months, you will see article after article arguing that our party can't afford a long nomination battle, we need to pick a nominee as soon as possible, that we have to unite behind whatever candidate appears to have the most money, the most endorsements or the best press coverage.
If the elites in Washington who make backroom deals decide who the president's going to be, then he's definitely the frontrunner, if the people of the United States decide to pick the next president of the United States, and they want someone who looks them in the eye and connects with them and is one of them, I'll do OK.
