Testing A Man's Character

The following are statements that relate to the budget speech given by President Barack Obama on April 13:

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
        — Abraham Lincoln

What we heard today was not fiscal leadership from our commander in chief; what we heard today was a political broadside from our campaigner in chief.
        — Representative Paul Ryan

I thought it was a disgrace. I rarely heard a speech by a president so shallow, so hyper-partisan and so intellectually dishonest
        — Charles Krauthammer
