Maybe he should go back to punting," - DNC spokesman Mo Elleithee responded to Scott Walker who compared liberal protestors to terrorists.
  4. “To compare the hundreds of thousands of teachers, students, grandmothers, veterans, correctional officers, nurses and all the workers who came out to peacefully protest and stand together for their rights as Americans to ISIS terrorists is disgusting and unacceptable,” Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Phil Neuenfeldt responded to (Wisconsin Governor) Scott Walker who says he can take on ISIS because he took on Labor Unions

Blair raised taxes, introduced significant constitutional reforms, promoted new rights for gay people, and signed treaties integrating Britain more closely with the EU.
  7. Margaret Thatcher - The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990. She is remembered as the PM with political philosophy and economic policies emphasized deregulation, particularly of the financial sector, flexible labor markets, and the selling off and closing down of state owned companies and withdrawing subsidy to others.
  8. Nelson Mandela - A famous global figure and African leader who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. Before his presidency, Mandela was an anti-apartheid activist and served 27 years in prison. He has received more than 250 awards over four decades, including the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize.
