On complaints about negative campaigning in the Florida Republican primary…

I am getting tired of the whining about negative campaigning. I’m getting tired of the whining from everybody… What in the world is politics? What is it, if not this? Saying something to the Gingrich people here. Newt … Newt is really caught up in this notion that Romney is saying things about him that aren’t true. I’m telling you, I’m having a tough time relating to being upset about that as someone who is routinely lied about every day and has been for 25 years. It comes with the territory.

On the debate clash last night between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum over Obamacare…

Mitt Romney, in the debate last night, said “All of this talk about health care is not worth getting angry about.” And yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is. It is worth getting angry about, it is worth being angry about, and it’s worth staying angry about… Santorum said “We can’t afford to give away this issue.” We can’t afford for the issue of Obamacare to be subordinated to anything else that’s being discussed up there.

On the apparently liberal leanings of many of the super-rich…

I’ve had so many people ask me over the years: “Why? Why are all these rich guys all of a sudden so liberal? Buffet. Gates.” Folks, there’s a simple answer. The filthy rich will say they are liberal. They will do things in public that reflect that they might be liberal, to keep the peasants with the pitchforks away from ‘em. It’s all a game. Have you ever heard of a family called the Kennedys. Have you ever heard of a family called the Rockefellers. Every filthy-rich individual or family must spout/support/do, in public, liberal stuff. It is how they convince people that their wealth is justified and is untouchable. It is a protection mechanism. It is to keep the Occupy Wall Street crowd off of their front yards and instead on the front yards of people who work at AIG. That’s all it is.

On the dissatisfaction of the Republican Establishment with the field of contenders...

They are secretly trying to get Mitch Daniels back in the race. There are entreaties being made to Bobby Jindal to get in the race. They are panicked. They are scared to death they’re going to lose the House and not win the Senate and I told you on November 10th, that’s their primary concern. That’s why they were apoplectic at Christine O’Donnell and Sharron Angle getting Tea Party nominations. It’s about the Senate. It’s about being in charge of the money. It’s not about cutting spending. The Republican establishment is not … signed on to the cutting spending business… they don’t like conservatives, and they’re not really all that concerned about spending. They want to be in charge of it. That’s who they are. And they are not going to be in charge of it if they don’t hold the House and if they don’t pick up the Senate. And that’s what they really want. They’re not and never have been convinced that Obama can be beat.

On Newt Gingrich’s castigation of journalist John King at last night’s South Carolina debate, after King led off the debate with a question to Gingrich about revelations made by his ex-wife in a televised interview…

You cannot shame the mainstream media. If any of you are thinking that the media learned a lesson – if any of you believe that the media finally had it handed to ‘em – if you believe that the media had their eyes opened and they are fully awake now and they understand what they’re dealing with – forget it. John King is proud of what happened last night. John King is a hero in the mainstream media. Because he didn’t back down. Because he continued to illustrate how it is that the media does really control the agenda. That was a demonstration of the power they hold over every public figure’s head that they choose to hold a guillotine… it’s a badge of honor. If you are thinking that John King was embarrassed, and ran away with his tail tucked between his legs and learned his lesson and it’ll never happen again – uh-uh-uh-uhhh. You cannot shame the mainstream media. They are proud of this. They delight in their power to destroy candidates they don’t like. They revel in the fact that they can keep so many conservatives from even thinking about getting into politics.

On the captain of the Costa Concordia cruise ship that ran aground off the coast of Italy…

The cruise ship captain? What a great politician this guy would make. “No, no-no-no! I wasn’t running away! I tripped! I fell in that lifeboat!” Bring this guy over here, legalize him and run him for office as a Democrat.

On the consequences of “animal rights” education in public schools…

There have been reports of growing rat infestations around the Occupy DC protests at Freedom Plaza, McPherson Square… When you educate young skulls full of mush with this pap and they grow up and find themselves in positions of power [in] government, this is what you get – the Wildlife Protection Act in 2010 in DC. According to Ken Cuccinelli, the Attorney General of Virginia said “This law is crazier than fiction.” It requires that rats and other vermin not be killed, but rather captured. Preferably in families. No glue or snap traps can be utilized. The rodents must be relocated from where they’re captured, and some of these animals may need to be transferred through a wildlife rehabilitator as part of the relocation process. The law does not allow pest control professionals to kill the rats.

On the Taliban’s nonchalant reaction to a video recording of U.S. soldiers urinating on dead Taliban fighters…

The Taliban says, that that tape, is not going to hurt anything. “We’re not bothered by that.” What does that tell you? … It tells us that they’re winning, and they’re close, and if they start raising hell about this it’s going to delay the ultimate [triumph]… Taliban must think they’re close to winning. Taliban must think they’re pretty close to taking over Afghanistan. There are peace talks going on. And the Taliban must think that we’re pretty close to surrendering it to ‘em and getting out. And they don’t want this to come along and stop that process and delay it.

On the party establishment’s cold feet now that Mitt Romney seems to be locking up the Republican presidential nomination…

Here in the establishment there are now qualms. Up until today, they’ve been telling us we only have a chance with Romney. The only way we can win. The only guy who can win is Romney. Today – “Well, that’s if all the Republicans show up – that may not happen.” When did that realization hit? … I’m telling you – the establishment’s now saying “Wait a minute, what have we done?” … Sorry, I’m not trying to stir anything up here, but this has been the model candidate. This is the guy they’ve all been pushing. Now all of a sudden… What does this mean? Why are they saying this? I’ll tell you what it is. One word, that explains this. It’s passion. There just doesn’t seem to be any.

On the media’s refusal to cover a potentially embarrassing Halloween party in the White House…

The press doesn’t want to get Obama in trouble… It is safe to say – it’s very accurate to say – that, domestically, in this country, conservatives – conservative Republicans – are the biggest enemy the Democrats have. Bigger than al Qaeda, bigger than the Taliban, bigger than Iran, bigger than any foreign enemy. The Democrat party, the Regime, the media, looks at their domestic political opposition as the biggest enemy they have, the biggest threat. And in a way, it kind of makes sense. We are the only thing standing in the way of their absolute power. They don’t look at the Iranians as trying to stop them. They don’t look at the Taliban as trying to stop ‘em. They look at us as trying to stop them. And they are part of the Obama agenda advancement team.

On which Republican candidate Obama would prefer to run against…

You think they don’t want to run against Romney? So you’ve got Romney advisors that were hijacked to help put together Obamacare, and now you’ve got Obama who’s about to institute a mortgage-refinance plan that is the idea of a Romney advisor. And yet we’re being told – “They’re scared to run against Romney, they really don’t want to run against Romney.” I don’t see it that way.

On the Republican primary race after the Iowa caucus (in which Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum tied for first place)…

Perry said last night he was going to head back to Texas for prayer, and reflection, to figure out what he should do next. Because he spent a lot of money in Iowa, and it didn’t translate to votes. And the theory is that if money didn’t translate to votes in Iowa, then it may not translate to votes anywhere else. And is it worth going into debt. Does he have a high enough base here to pull off what now would be a miracle. I hope he stays in. ‘cause I told you I like Perry. And I like Santorum. And I told you countless times I know, either one of those guys, and I said this about Bachmann as well – if any of them are elected President, I know, I have no doubt whatsoever, they are gonna be fighting for this country each and every day. No doubt whatsoever.

[Previously-broadcast material] On the Occupy movement’s ignorant criticisms of capitalism…

Everything that’s happened to this country since 2008 is not capitalism. Bailouts. Government buying car companies. Investing in phony, fraudulent green energy things. This is not capitalism that’s happened in this country in the last three years. We haven’t had any capitalism. And the truth of the matter is that’s why we’re in the situation we are in. We’ve already abandoned it with this regime.
