Quote of the Day

"The irresponsible actions of my party, the Republican Party, over [the debt ceiling debacle] was astounding. I'd never seen anything like it in my lifetime. I think about some of the presidents we've had on my side of the aisle—Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr., go right through them, Eisenhower—they would be stunned."—Former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel (Nebraska), who said his party has moved too far rightward and called the debt negotiations "an astounding lack of responsible leadership by many in the Republican party, and I say that as a Republican."
