Quote Of The Day

“What I think Glenn Beck misses is that it’s not just talking, it’s actually actions. It’s caring for the poor, it’s caring for the sick, it is, you know, using the power of government in a positive way to meet the private sector and the nonprofits and all of our people of faith to do right by the people. That’s where Glenn Beck’s wrong.

“And I’ll tell you another way Glenn Beck’s wrong. He and his whole crew said that this city could be rebuilt by private effort alone. The government was terrible, the government couldn’t do anything. Do you know how many houses all of the nonprofits have built? No more than 5,000 in five years. Do you know how many we lost? Two hundred thousand. So Glenn Beck has to go back and look at the facts because he is preaching a gospel that never has existed, doesn’t exist today and never will. We follow the gospel, [brother and New Orleans Mayor] Mitch [Landrieu] and I, of Jesus Christ.”

– U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), on NBC’s Meet The Press Sunday.
