Quotes edit

  • The first primary, the one against Bachmann, would be held in Iowa, where Bachmann is probably gonna win, and Perry could be competitive.

    • "Obama might pull out", The Hill, 20 September 2011 
    • President Barack Obama won the presidential election against Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
  • Dick Morris: Look, I believe that -- and I've said this before and everybody either gives a sigh of a relief or a cynical laugh — there is no chance that Obama will get re-elected.
    Sean Hannity: I don't agree that's true. I think it's possible.
    Dick Morris: Zilch, none, zip, nada.
    • Hannity, Fox News, 2012-02-27
  • Mike Gallagher: Hey Dick Morris, you sound intrigued by a Donald Trump candidacy.
    Dick Morris: Oh I am. I am. I take him very seriously. I think he's going to run, I think he's got a good shot at the nomination, and I think if he were nominated, he could beat Obama.
    • The Mike Gallagher Show, Salem Radio Network, 28 April 2012 
    • Donald Trump did not run for president of the United States in 2012.

About Dick Morris edit

  • Jon Stewart: But I can show you a prediction that's wrong today. It comes via Dick Morris, King of Wrong Mountain. And it concerns accountability for pundits.
    Dick Morris (clip): Romney's going to win. He's going to win by, I believe, more than 5 points. I believe he's going to get more than 300 electoral votes.
    Dick Morris (clip): You know, after the election, either I'm going to have to go through a big reckoning, or they are.
    Jon Stewart: No, you won't and they won't. Nobody will, because you're pundits. You live in a reckoning-free zone. One thing we learned is that punditry is like musical chairs. The only difference is, in musical chairs, when the music stops, nobody ever moves the chair. They just keep adding more chairs.
