“Companies will need to invest $641 billion over the next two decades in pipelines, pumps and other infrastructure to keep up with the gas, crude oil and natural gas liquids flowing from U.S. fields, according to a study released Tuesday.” – FuelFix

“The Senate playing field has shifted in Republicans’ favor over the last several weeks thanks to recruiting successes in Colorado and New Hampshire, as well as a national political environment that looks increasingly treacherous for Democrats.” – Washington Post

“The chairman’s remarks carry some validity: Among some female voters, the party did well. Mitt Romney 56 percent of all white women, according to exit polls, and 53 percent of married women of all races.” – National Journal

Bill de Blasio is the George Wallace of the 21st century.” – Deroy Murdock/National Review

“The campaign to treat us as a nation of children continues with a new White House website that uses animated GIF images of kittens, ducks, teddy bears, baby pandas, and someone falling off a bathroom sink while twerking to convince us that it’s time to buy one of Barack Obama’s overpriced, under-performing insurance policies.  Punch line: the links from this kindergarten website to HealthCare.gov don’t work.” – RedState

Why are there no good choices? From Crimea to North Korea, from Syria to Egypt, and from Iraq to Afghanistan, America apparently has no good options. If possession is nine-tenths of the law, Russia owns Crimea and all we can do is sanction and disinvite—and wring our hands.” – Mitt Romney/WSJ

“Will the West get serious about sanctions on Russia, now that Vladimir Putin has completed his seizure of Crimea? We may soon find out … relatively soon, anyway.

The political correctness that undergirds it, meanwhile, can be traced back to the past century’s liberal Protestantism. Conservatives, of course, routinely scoff that liberals’ ersatz religion is inferior to the genuine article.” – The American Interest

“My humble advice to the GOP: Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Don’t fail to grasp the significance of the Florida election. Make Democrats pay for their president and their shared agenda.” – David Limbaugh/Right Wing News
