On how Republicans in Washington should respond to President Obama and the Democrats in light of this year’s election…

Okay, so you lose an election. Stop running around with your tail between your legs. Stop acting all defeatist and down in the dumps. Stand up for what you believe. I know it's easy to say from behind a microphone. I do. But it shouldn't be very hard to say that you're just not gonna stand idly by and support Obama bankrupting the country. You're not gonna stand idly by and watch him nationalize businesses through the back door. You're not gonna stand idly by and watch him replace our capitalist system with socialism.

On the leftward change of the culture in the United States…

Folks, we're going to have to accept some things here, for example, the feminist incursion into higher education, and K through 12 education, has mattered. Women today are not the women they were 30 years ago. They're just not. They're angrier. They're not as interested in relationships. All of that radical stuff that we laughed at and thought nobody in their right mind would ever believe, they do. And it's the same thing with every other radical aspect of the left. It has taken hold in enough people to either be a majority or close enough to it that, given electoral turnout, Democrats can win on this stuff. All of this madcap stuff over the last 25 years that I've chronicled being taught as multiculturalism, we've laughed at it, "nobody's ever gonna believe this." Enough Americans do believe a lot of this radical stuff in enough numbers to elect Barack Obama and reelect Barack Obama. It's a reality that we have to face.

[Mark Steyn is filling in for Rush today] On the impossibility of making meaningful progress on paying off the national debt by “soaking the rich”…

If you took every single penny that Warren Buffett has, it'd pay for 4-1/2 days of the US government. This tax-the-rich won't work. The problem here is the government is way bigger than even the capacity of the rich to sustain it. The Buffett Rule would raise $3.2 billion a year, and take 514 years just to pay off Obama's 2011 budget deficit.

[Doug Urbanski is filling in for Rush today] On “Rules for Radicals” and the necessity for Republicans to learn from it…

Rules for Radicals is a brilliant book. It is a demented book, too, but you can be both of those. If you read and absorb it, not only will you learn what the other side is thinking and their tactics, but you will learn tactics that you must employ. There's good stuff in that book, from a man who was dangerously insane, but it's an activist's book -- and we must be activists!

On the upcoming political battle over the “fiscal cliff”…

Not only are we not going to avoid the cliff; it is my contention, I say to you today that the Obama agenda is to go off the cliff. He wants the cliff. And he wants it for two reasons: (A), because of the genuine economic damage that it will do, and (B) for the politics of it. What happens? If we go over the fiscal cliff, what happens? Taxes go up. Simply by virtue of the expiration of the Bush tax rates. Taxes go up. They go up on everybody, not just the rich. And as is also a part of the fiscal cliff, defense spending gets cut, which Obama wants. If you don't believe me, don't forget that Obama has doubled his request for tax revenue from $800 billion to $1.6 trillion. That's his opener in his negotiations with the Republicans to stop going over the fiscal cliff. I'm here to tell you, using my intelligence guided by experience, there will not be any entitlement cuts as part of any cliff deal, because Obama does not want any. The Democrats do not want any. There will be no cuts in the entitlements. And the fact is, I don't think anybody in Congress wants any cuts in entitlements, either, if you get down to brass tacks. So what's gonna happen is this: We'll go over the cliff. We won't get a deal before we go over the cliff. The tax increases, by the time we have a new Congress sworn in, we're gonna have tax increases, and we're gonna have military cuts. This is going to happen, I fear.

On the professional class of political consultants and the dearth of conservatives in today’s electoral politics…

They're the ones losing elections, but they have to get hired by the next losing candidate, and so they have to make sure that their list of potential employers thinks that it's me losing elections and not them. I don't have a record of election loss. I have yet to run a campaign. I have yet to pick a candidate. I have yet to script a convention. I haven't authored a political ad. I haven't come up with a political strategery. I comment on it. I suggest things that I would do, but I have never once inserted myself in their business. I have never gone to a candidate and said, "This consultant is undermining you." I've never done that, never would, not my job, not my business… I've told you this. I have known for a long time that not every conservative considers every other conservative to be on the team. There are a lot of so-called conservatives who wish a bunch of us weren't on the team. There is no conservative movement right now, by the way. There is not a conservative movement, and there is not a singular conservative leader in electoral politics.

On California voters approving a new tax on themselves…

In Prop 30, citizens of California voted to raise taxes on themselves. And so Mayor Willie Brown, Speaker Brown, "Oh, this will work, this will work 'cause the people are behind it. They voted this themselves." Okay, so we got that. Number two. He said, "Yeah, the lottery, 25, 30 years ago, supposed to pay for all education." As far as most Californians are concerned, there's nothing wrong with it. The schools are still open. Unfunded liabilities, pension liabilities? They may be unfunded, but people retire, they're still getting their pensions. We haven't gone over the cliff on anything. None of that explanation's gonna convince anybody that there's a problem. That's my point.

On the futility of letting the Bush tax rates expire and expecting it to solve the budget deficit…

Do you know how much money is raised by eliminating the Bush tax cuts? It's $824 billion. We're now looking, ladies, at our fifth trillion-plus-dollar deficit. So all during the campaign we shouted our lungs out, we shouted from the mountaintop, "You cannot reduce the deficit, you can't even make a dent in the deficit by letting the Bush tax rates expire! There's not enough money. You can't do it. In fact, if you confiscate all the money the rich have over a million dollars, you run the government for six weeks and then you're out of money. That's how much money we're spending. That's how much money that we are watching go out the door and how much money we're borrowing.”

On whether Republicans need to change their core political convictions after President Obama’s reelection…

When Democrats lose elections, do they ever say, "You know what? We may have to give up this gay marriage position of ours and sort of abandon that. We may need to stand up for traditional marriage." Do the Democrats ever say that when they lose elections? No. After the Democrats lose elections, do they ever say, "You know, I think we've got to abandon this effort to shut down Second Amendment. We're gonna have to understand it. We're really out of touch. We're alienating our voters who love guns. We're gonna have to become big advocates of the Second Amendment"? Do Democrats ever say that when they lose elections? Do the Democrats, after they lose elections, all run to the media and start agonizing over where they're going wrong? Do Democrats, when they are losing elections, ever blame their media? Do they ever say that their media is alienating people? Do they ever say their media is too mean-spirited? Do they ever say their media is too dishonest? Do they ever blame their media when they lose elections? They don't do that, do they? When Democrats lose elections, do they tell themselves, "You know, we better tone down our rhetoric a little bit. We better dial it back. We are offending people that go to church and we're offending people who have a traditional, historical view of America. We'd better tone it down. We're gonna be in real trouble here"? Do they ever say that when they lose? When the Democrats lose elections, are their comedians blamed as being too harsh and too cruel and filled with hate speech? No, it doesn't happen. But we do all of that. The Republicans are in the process of doing all of that. Do the Democrats ever, when they lose elections, openly discuss abandoning their core principles?

On whether the election results constitute a rejection of conservatism by the electorate…

If the three million votes, the three million Republicans that everybody thought would turn out had turned out, three million Republicans did not vote, the statistical analysis is that if those three million had voted for Romney, Romney would have won the popular vote by a couple hundred thousand. We didn't lose this because of immigration. We didn't lose this because of women. We lost it because we didn't turn out the base. There were eight million Obama voters who did not vote this year as opposed to 2008. There was not more enthusiasm for Obama in this country. It was not conservatism that lost. It was not our ideals that lost. It was our campaign strategy. That's where this was lost. Reagan's words ring true. Don't give up your ideals. Recognize there are millions and millions of Americans who want what you want.

On the meaning of President Obama’s reelection…

Romney presented a picture... This is very frightening stuff to me. He presented a picture of the traditional view, the traditional roots, the traditional way things work in this country. And part of his campaign... There was an assumption, I think, that that's what most people were looking for and wanted a return to. Instead we've got the Mulligan presidency. We're gonna give Obama a do-over!

On President Obama’s view of America and his role today in reforming it…

He thinks he represents the America that's been getting the shaft for 200 years. He represents the America that's on the wrong side of every deal. They get the raw deal, the rotten deal. They have been screwed. They have been shafted. They've been taken advantage of. They've been discriminated against. It's time to make it right. It's time to show these people that have been doing these evil things to people exactly how it feels. So you want to find out what it's like on welfare, you don't care people are on it, here you go, here's your unemployment check. You want to find out what it feels like to be scared to death, here you go. This is about revenge, a little vengeance. It is about theoretical capitalism that they despise 'cause they can't control it and again because they think it's unfair and unjust and unequal. No, no, no, they're not, in their minds, trying to destroy America. They're trying to rewrite it.

On the U.S. government’s refusal to defend the Benghazi consulate…

They were warned multiple times, and cables were sent from the consulate that day… A cable was sent that day saying that an attack was being planned, assembled, and put together. Requests for help were made. The ambassador himself sent a cable in August telling everybody in the White House, top level, that this was happening. Al-Qaeda was massing. And Obama still, to this day, is on the campaign trail using the phrase: "Al-Qaeda's on the run; Osama bin Laden is dead!" Four Americans are dead. In some instances, they violated orders to help. They were told to stand down, and when you hear that they were "told to stand down," that's not the right terminology. They were told not to help. They were told to stay put. They were told not to offer any defense of the consulate or the ambassador or any of the people there. To say that they were "told to stand down" doesn't cut it. They were ordered to do nothing! They were ordered not to help! They were ordered not to offer a defense. And, as we know now, Tyrone Woods violated orders and went anyway because that's the nature of these people.
