It is hard to keep 218 frogs in a wheelbarrow long enough to get a bill passed.
John Boehner, Speaker of the House
Looking back on 2012, did you have a favorite quote? More than ever, the finger that clicks "Like" or "Share" to share the latest sound byte is the hand that rocks the world and this is never more true than during an election year. Thus the year 2012 was a year dominated by political sound bytes- many of them gaffs, few of them truly profound.
For that reason, Modern Quotations 2012 - Wisdom & Wordplay, Excerpts & Extracts From the Calendar Year 2012, not only contains some quotable quotes from the primaries and the election, it also features notable quotes from well beyond the political realm - athletes, musicians, flashes in the pan, writers, artists, and so many more.
Whether a memorable quote has gone viral or is on a blog or buried deep inside an interview, Ross Bonander has once again worked hard to compile a comprehensive collection of the year's most memorable quotations.
When public figures get in trouble for something they said, it is usually not because they misspoke, but because they accidentally told the truth.
