On the federal government's decision to reject Texas requests for disaster relief after enormous losses from wildfires [Previously-broadcast material].


To date the fires have blackened more than two million acres, destroyed more than four hundred homes, and caused more than $20 million dollars in agricultural losses, including livestock deaths... don't try to tell me this isn't political. In this day and age the right question is Why in the world should the federal government help Texas? It's a red state. Why should they help Texas? ... Why should Obama help Texas? He knows they're not going to vote for him. That's the way of the world these days.

On Obama's political vulnerability in 2012.


What a political target. There's nobody that wants more unemployment. There's nobody that wants higher taxes. There's nobody that wants more of the same in the housing market. Is there? There's nobody that wants higher gasoline prices, there's nobody [that] wants what's happening with higher food prices to continue... there's nobody that wants more of what Obama's policies have led to, is there?

On Medicare reform, liberals, and the media.


What do you expect to happen, when we announce a plan to reform Medicare? You know that the Democrats are going to demagogue it. You know that it's gonna happen. You know that the media is gonna do everything they can to destroy anybody and everybody behind the plan. Because all they care about is winning the election.

On the supposedly weak field of Republican contenders for the Presidential nomination.


The rest of the field is said to be weak... that's starting to offend me too, as though the Democrat field in 2008 – Hilary and Obama and John Edwards – was the epitome of a great field?

On American Liberal Jews' loyalty to liberalism above everything else.


So they're gonna sit there. It's entirely possible that American Liberal Jews could sit there and watch this regime whittle Israel away to nothing... What is it going to take to wake them up?

On President Obama's approach to problem-solving.


It looks like it's Obama's plan to get the Middle East to love us by giving them more money. Which makes sense because Obama has been spending other peoples' money to buy loyalty, or votes, for his entire political career.

On the spending habits of Newt Gingrich.


Newt Gingrich has racked up a huge bill at Tiffany's. The jeweler. Five hundred thousand dollars. Our ever-attentive media is on the case... do I care what a former politician and his wife do with their money? Or what a current politician is doing with mine?

May 17, 2011

On the emergence of a new political epithet.


There's actually a new term, it's just like 'deniers' – global warming deniers, climate change deniers, you know, connect them, relate them, to the Holocaust deniers. Now default deniers. The conservatives – on the outskirts of economic circles, who don't believe that default will lead to dire consequences – are now default deniers. Why is there even a debt limit if it would be catastrophic if it were not raised whenever it suits Congress to raise it?

May 16, 2011

On who President Obama would prefer to run against in 2012.


The last thing Obama wants is to run against a real conservative. Obama hopes to hell he gets a squishy, moderate, middle-of-the-road McCain type. He wants somebody who is afraid to occupy conservative positions. He wants a Republican who has been convinced that that is the wrong way to go... I'm telling you they will do anything to keep a demonstrable, genuine conservative from getting the Republican nomination, because they know that they will lose and lose big.

On the actual political character of this country.


I think the majority of this country – is us. We just don't see it reflected anywhere. But we are the majority in this country. Tea party conservatism – particularly, if you look at the way people live their lives. We are categorized each and every day as the "fringe" but we are not. We are the mainstream. The way we believe, the way we live, the philosophies, the morality, all of it – we are the mainstream of this country

May 12, 2011

On President Obama's casting of blame on the previous administration for the state of the economy.


So let me see if I understand here. Obama was in the Senate, voting for all of those things that led to the economy being worse than he knew that it was. He was voting for more spending. He was voting for higher taxes – Pelosi was speaker, Dingy Harry was the majority leader. And what? Poor old Obama, all 159 days he spent in the Senate, was clueless? He had no idea how horrible things really were? He just, one day stepped into the Oval Orifice, saw everything was worse than he thought, after two years of controlling all of Washington at the House and the Senate?

May 11, 2011

On President Obama's apparent disinterest in the historic Mississippi River floods.


Instead of going to El Paso, and pushing for amnesty, shouldn't Obama be going to Mississippi? And all these other flooded states? I mean he's got the ability to lower the sea levels. Why does he not put it to use? The Mississippi River is flooding in historic ways – and Obama goes down to El Paso Texas. He's talked about lowering the sea levels, I guess that means he can also lower a river's level. But he seems not to care much.

May 10, 2011

On media priorities in their coverage of the assassination of bin Laden.


What's more important to the media – trying to convince us that bin Laden was still in charge of al Qaeda? Or trying to convince us that Obama was in charge of the raid that killed him?

May 9, 2011

On Obama's poor re-election prospects for 2012.


Nobody voted for this. Nobody wants this. Nobody wants a declining United States. Nobody wants a declining U.S. economy. Nobody wants rising food prices. Nobody wants rising gasoline prices. Nobody wants the price of their home to be worth less than their mortgage. Why would we re-elect the guy who did it all?

May 6, 2011

On media coverage of the unemployment rate.


The unemployment rate's up to 9%, and they're celebrating. They're talking about some of the strongest job growth – 244,000 new jobs, 62,000 of them from Micky D's. Sixty two thousand from McDonald's. Now remember, in the past, those jobs have been impugned by the Democrats and the left, as meaningless, futureless, hamburger-flipper jobs, without health care... if we'd had our news media of today, back in the days of Herbert Hoover, we would've never had a depression. Because it would've never been reported as a depression.

May 5, 2011

On all the things President Obama can't say.


He ordered an assassination, and he can't say it. He put us on a path to socialized medicine and he can't say it. The stimulus bill was a slush fund for public sector unions – he can't say it. EPA regulations are back-door cap-and-tax – he can't say it. He's a card-carrying member of the radical left – he can't say it. He has a leftist-inspired prejudice against the private sector – he can't say it. Bill Ayers was his good friend – he can't say it. He listened to every word in Jeremiah Wright's church for twenty years – he can't say it. And he has a real problem with Israel. But he can't say it. That is why Obama has so many lame, phony, nonsensical versions of answers to simple questions.

May 4, 2011

On the political need for the Obama Administration to kill rather than capture Osama bin Laden.


There is no way this administration is going to bring him here alive and apply their own sissified techniques to this guy... You talk about politically DOA. You bring Osama bin Laden anywhere, you put him in Club Gitmo and you give him an ACLU lawyer? And then you promise him a trial? Everything they've done with Kalhid Sheik Mohammed– there is no way they were going to apply their own sissified policies that they've tried on everybody else to bin Laden.

May 3, 2011

On the tactics used by US forces in the killing of bin Laden, which the Left found abhorrent under President Bush, but which it now accepts.


So again, to review: an American President, with admittedly incomplete intelligence, invades a foreign and supposedly friendly nation. Without that nation's knowledge or consent. Using information extracted from Guantanamo detainees subjected to allegedly illegal enhanced interrogation methods, i.e. waterboarding... and all of this was done without any United Nations resolution or authorization of any kind.

May 2, 2011

On the death of Osama bin Laden at the hands of the U.S. military.


It was President Obama – single-handedly, and alone – who came up with the strategy that brought about the effective assassination of Osama bin Laden. He kept the Bush policies alive, keeping a military presence in the middle east, allowing the military to finish the job that they started nearly ten years ago.
