(CNN) — Here are some of the most quotable sound bites from the Sunday morning shows:

On what the election results mean:

“I do think that many voters still remember being disappointed by Republican majorities. And I think this has not been a huge embrace of the Republican Party or the Republican brand. But it clearly was a repudiation of an agenda that’s not working and agenda in which the government has overreached dramatically in many, many areas, and in which the spending has been wildly excessive.” — Republican Sen.-elect Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, CNN’s “State of the Union”

“It’s not so much that people re-embraced Republicans. It’s that they didn’t like the direction President Obama and Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Congress was taking the nation, and now they’re at least opening the door to reconsidering supporting Republicans. And now we have to govern and lead and produce results. And if we don’t, we’ll be thrown out in two years.” — Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, “State of the Union”

“I don’t think anyone thinks that the American people were fooled. I think what the American people were saying loud and clear is that the pace of the economic recovery, the continued large rate of joblessness is just unacceptable. And it is unacceptable.” — Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen, “State of the Union”

On President Obama’s agenda:

“When you hear the president say things like, you know, ‘We did a poor job of explaining what we were trying to do,’ I think that that’s indicative of his not getting it, because the voters have had enough of the Obama agenda.” — Republican Whip Eric Cantor, “Fox News Sunday”

“It is time for him to try and come meet us and say, ‘Fine, let’s get back to the kind of things that Americans are about.’ It is living within our means. It is making the tough decisions so that we can see America prosper and lead again.” — Cantor, “Fox News Sunday”
