Two great quips of the week-by Michael Rubin and Ryan Lizza

Michael Rubin, who was a guest on Bill Bennett's 'Morning in America' radio show on Monday, was his brilliant insightful self.  The last question Bill asked him: "Is it fair that  Republicans running for president were blaming  president Obama for the Palestinians run around gambit of going to the United Nations for statehood without negotiations?"

Michael said, well Obama is the president and the buck stops there.  Obama's problem was thinking it was just a matter of fairness where Israel would give up land so there could be peace and a Palestinian state.

Then Michael Rubin came up with what is the best quip of the week [if not more]: "President Obama's problem was that he came into office acting like the zoning commissioner of Jerusalem."
Ryan Lizza the Washington Correspondent for The New Yorker magazine was one of the guests on Hugh Hewitt's radio show on Thursday.   Hugh's final question to Lizza was: "Why does the media keep asking Governor Christie if he is going to be a candidate, despite his denials, but never do the same for Senator Marco Rubio?"  Lizza said because Rubio will be the vice presidential candidate on the GOP side.  He said that is a given. 

Then Liza gave what I consider the second great quip of the week: The question that should be asked is of the GOP candidates for president.  "Which one of them can be the best running mate for Marco Rubio?"

Assuming Rubio would accept, and assuming Christie does not run, I still bet on a Romney /Rubio ticket as the best option to get done what this country needs, and THAT is a retired Obama!!!
