They're all on the right in the spectrum of our politics, but they all have one very important thing in common they all have something they don't want the federal government to do."

- Michael S. Gerber, State legislatures back Bush initiatives for national reforms at the state level, HillNews.com, April 16, 2003: "Legislators in 30 states have approved resolutions in favor of nine different federal issues. Although the project, led by ATR president and GOP activist Grover Norquist, has been around in some form or another for several years, it's been ramped up in the last year to put pressure on Democratic lawmakers from states that Bush won in 2000."
- John Aloysius Farrell, "Rancor becomes top D.C. export: GOP leads charge in ideological war," Denver Post, May 26, 2003: "'We are trying to change the tones in the state capitals - and turn them toward bitter nastiness and partisanship,' said Grover Norquist, a leading Republican strategist, who heads a group called Americans for Tax Reform.... 'Bipartisanship is another name for date rape,' Norquist, a onetime adviser to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, said, citing an axiom of House conservatives.... These days, Norquist and other conservative activists use the GOP tilt in the legislatures to make life difficult for Democratic members of Congress. On issue after issue - the war on terror, taxes, judicial appointees - Republican leaders in Washington have been getting GOP-controlled legislatures to go on record in support of Bush initiatives. It makes it more difficult for Democrats to explain unpopular votes back home."
- Al Kamen, "John and Mary and Jayson and Rick," Washington Post, May 28, 2003: "Quote of the Month: 'Bipartisanship is another name for date rape,' says Grover Norquist, GOP strategist and head of Americans for Tax Reform, according to an article yesterday in the Denver Post. 'We are trying to change the tones in the state capitals -- and turn them toward bitter nastiness and partisanship.'"
- Al Kamen, "Taken for a Spin," Washington Post, June 2, 2003: "Veteran GOP operative Grover Norquist called Friday to clarify some comments in the Denver Post and in this column last week. He said he was not inveighing against the merits of bipartisanship per se, only noting that partisan fights at the state level seem to stop tax increases but bipartisanship or nonpartisanship in some states -- such as Utah and Nebraska -- seems to lead to tax hikes.... And that line 'bipartisanship is like date rape' is not his, he said, but was coined by former House majority leader Richard K. Armey (R-Tex.) when the GOP was in the minority and being bipartisan meant getting the short end."
- Anita Stieglitz, "Who's Pushing Bush?," Jerusalem Post, June 4, 2003: "The man pushing Bush to push the Jews is none other than Grover Norquist."
- Jill Zuckman, "Pipeline Leads to Whitehouse," Chicago Tribune, June 9, 2003
- Jill Zuckman, Conservative operative is in the right place at the right time," Orlando Sentinel, June 15, 2003: "Norquist is highly specific about his ultimate objective.... 'The goal is to reduce the size and scope of government in half over the next 25 years,' he said in an interview.... Norquist and the White House are so close that it is sometimes difficult to discern who is influencing whom. But such Bush initiatives as privatizing Social Security, moving Medicare recipients into managed health-care programs, eliminating the estate tax and reforming tort lawsuits bear all the marks of Norquist's thinking."
