Quotations of the day
By The Associated Press
"We have ashamed and defeated our attackers. Kenya has stared down evil and triumphed." -- Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, in a televised address to the nation that was delayed for hours as gunbattles persisted at the upscale Westgate mall.
"This grand experiment is simply not working. It is time to make D.C. listen." -- Tea party conservative Sen. Ted Cruz, speaking to a largely empty chamber as he filibustered President Barack Obama's health care law. Cruz vowed to speak in opposition to Obamacare until he's "no longer able to stand," even though fellow Republicans urged him to back down from his filibuster for fear of a possible government shutdown in a week.
