Smear Quotations

Nobody can make me cry in public. I'll punch them first before they make my mascara smear.
Sandra Bullock

I knew Arizona's SB 1070 would be controversial when I introduced it, but I did not expect the national immigration debate to revolve around a state law. While the anti-American open-borders Left attack me and the law as 'racist,' 'nativist' and their other empty smear words, the vast majority of the people of Arizona and America support the law.
Russell Pearce

Now that I have called you on your false accusation, you are using additional smear tactics.
George Soros

President Obama clearly cannot run on his record. All he's offering is more of the same. That's not good. Look at the economy. It's stagnating. And so, what they're now going to try and do is bring this campaign down to little things, distractions, distortions, smear, fear, anger, frustration.
Paul Ryan

Jeff Greenfield
