On political notions of "seriousness".
This whole notion that Obama is a serious figure offends my sensibilities. Why is he serious? Because he can speak? Because he has a university resume that's appealing or approved by people who define who's serious? What about his intelligence? How smart is this guy? What does he know? I don't believe if Barack Obama had a dream for a product to bring [to market] I don't think he'd have the slightest idea how to bring a product to the marketplace. I don't think he has the slightest understanding. He's got a lot of resentment for it, but I don't think he has the slightest understanding about how wealth is created. He just resents it when it is. The guy is single-handedly destroying the United States economy.
