Quotes of the Week: Ricky Bobby Edition

comment

  "Davenport, Iowa — It was a nice crowd that gathered at the marvelous Figge Art Museum here for a Rick Perry town hall. But by the time it was over, it felt more like a [Bobby] Jindal in 2016 rally. ... You could tell the crowd was with Jindal during the Q-and-A when one of the first questions to Perry was whether he would invite Jindal to join his Cabinet. My guess is that Jindal has bigger things in mind than a place in a notional Perry Cabinet." — Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne Jr., on the GOP presidential campaign trail.

  "Jindal not only heaped praise on the Texas governor, but he also threw Perry a lifeline when the Texas governor stumbled in explaining a portion of his tax plan. A voter asked Perry if the standard deduction would still exist if someone opts to use his proposed 20 percent flat tax, and after Perry mistakenly responded no, Jindal chimed in, reminding the Texas governor the standard deduction would still be in place." — ABC News' Arlette Saenz, on the road with Perry and Jindal.

  "Every barrel of oil that comes out of those sands in Canada is a barrel of oil that we don't have to buy from a foreign source." — Perry, on the Iowa campaign trail.
