Quotes of the week

This has been the Obama administration’s lost week -- an anger-filled race to get out in front of a story that the White House has variously underestimated, fueled, belittled, and sought to channel. All President Obama has to do is revive the economy and end a war and fix healthcare and rescue schools and save the planet. But first he’s had to spend a week trying to get back a few million dollars from a government-owned insurance company.
-- Rick Klein, ABC News

My administration is now committed to diplomacy that addresses the full range of issues before us, and to pursuing constructive ties among the United States, Iran and the international community. This process will not be advanced by threats. We seek instead engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect.
-- President Obama, from his message to Iran
