Christmas Quiz (3) – that was the year that was…

A few “who saids”. and a number of “who wons”. Pretty easy without help?

Who said:

2) “We are not rushing into the banks like some governments in other countries without knowing precisely what the position is in those banks,”
3) “I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”
4) “You have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry. I know that nothing can undo the wrong you have endured. Your trust has been betrayed and your dignity has been violated.”
5) “I want you to know, Mrs Obama, that I’m your husband’s No 1 fan. And not just because he’s a black man. He’s mixed. And I wouldn’t really know what that looks like anyway.”

7) “Capitalism kills competition.”
8) “He’s supposed to be leading the country and he’s calling an ordinary woman who’s come up and asked questions that most people would ask him… It’s going to be tax, tax, tax for another 20 years to get out of this national debt, and he’s calling me a bigot” (Can you remember her name??)
