"I understand the process of politics and the game of television."
"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future."John Sununu on John F. Kennedy
"Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress but I repeat myself."John Sununu on Mark Twain
"One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors."John Sununu on Plato
"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand."John Sununu on Milton Friedman
"It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."John Sununu on Joseph Stalin
"Politicians also have a love affair with the 'small business exemption.' Too much paperwork? Too heavy a burden? Not enough time? Just exempt small businesses from the rule. It sounds so pro-growth. Instead it's an admission that the costs of a regulation just can't be justified."
"The American formula for creating business is not to have the government create business."
"Not since the steam engine has any invention disrupted business models like the Internet. Whole industries including music distribution, yellow-pages directories, landline telephones, and fax machines have been radically reordered by the digital revolution."
"The Internet creates as well as destroys. Social networks, search advertising, and cloud computing are multibillion dollar industries that didn't exist 10 years ago. They are products of the same force that has rendered the Postal Service's core business obsolete."
"Energy and environmental regulation, transportation, and broadband policy all benefit when legislators have a basic grounding in the technical concepts behind business models, products, and innovation."
