WHAT THEY SAID
&
WHAT THEY MEANT

We all have met people that say one thing and mean another. Many well known people have spoken out on various topics. We have listed some quotes and what we believe was actually meant.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"The moderates have had their candidate in 2008 and they had their candidate in 2012. And they got crushed in both elections. Now they tell us we have to keep moderating. If we do that, will we win?"
- Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of the Family Leader, a religious conservative organization, questioning the moderate Republican's logic.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
The next Republican presidential nominee will be Mike Huckabee.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I am different than some in that Im not going to deny that Im interested. Im not going to deny that I think we have to go a different direction because were not winning."
- Sen. Rand Paul on a 2016 presidential run.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I can't deny I was thinking of a 2016 presidential run when I endorsed Mitt Romney, we have to go a different direction because were not winning with establishment Republicans.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I am humbled by the over 130 RNC Members who I have talked to who have pledged their support and public endorsement for me to continue on as Chairman so we can finish the job that we started and continue to grow our Party,"
- RNC chairman Reince Priebus on returning as RNC chairman.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
So we can finish the job that we started and continue to move our party into extinction.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Im proud of my governor, John Kasich, for taking a stand and resisting the federal takeover of health care in Ohio,"
- House Speaker John Boehner on Ohio Gov.Kasich letting the federal government set up a health exchange rather than setting up a state health exchange.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
We Republicans are for state's rights unless we are given a choice by the federal government then we choose the federal government.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"We built a great ship, and regrettably, in my view, we didn't sail. I think it would have been a crisp transition,"
- Mike Leavitt head of Mitt Romney's presidential transition team.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Unfortunately Mitt Romeny's campaign sunk before our ship sailed.

- Senator John McCain when asked on why he missed a Senate committee investigating the terrorist attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, while at the same time was giving press conference asking for a special Congressional committee to investigate the same attack.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I am not going to comment because I have no logical answer other than I am attempting to politicize a serious attack.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"When you have someone who can articulate a clear, convincing, conservative message, they win."
- Club for Growth president Chris Chocola on whether Republicans need to be more moderate or more conservative after Mitt Romney losing the 2012 presidential election.

"The best way to solve this is through diplomacy,"
- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the conflict between Israel and Hamas.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Diplomacy is better than killing each other.


WHAT THEY SAID,

I would be playing in the AHL if not for Gary Bettman's expansion into new hockey markets.

- Florida Panthers forward Kris Versteeg on NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly being removed.

- NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr on the NHL wanting to close labor talks before the Thanksgiving holiday.
