INDIANAPOLIS - Since Howey Politics began publishing 20 years ago, one of our favorite features is the “Quote of the Week.”
in the classic story that literally writes itself, here are some of the
best quotes over the past decades from Hoosier politicians, citizens
and journalists with the original HPI publication date:
it’s been pointed out to me on many occasions, reformers are burned at
the stake and then statues are built to memorialize them later on.” – Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson, Nov. 17, 2005.
is intolerable that a court in this free society would ask a person to
censure the prayer they offer in the tradition of their faith.” – House Speaker Brian Bosma, following a federal court ruling on prayer in the Indiana House, Dec. 8, 2005.
“What a complete charlatan. I was always taught such conduct could be grounds for disbarment.” – State Sen. Mike Delph, Tweeting about Attorney General Greg Zoeller, April 23, 2013.
red line means going to war. This is very dangerous because we may be
aiding people who will use the arms against us and our allies.” – Former Sen. Dick Lugar on Syrian chemical attack, Aug. 22, 2013.
“I’m trying to move the state forward. Some things are more important than reelection.” – State Rep. Troy Woodruff, after his vote to break the DST deadlock, May 4, 2005.
“Only in America do people have the opportunity to be wrong on an issue.” – Eric Miller of Advance America, at a Statehouse pro-marriage-amendment rally, March 10, 2005.
