On Obama’s shocking “not optimal” gaffe on The Daily Show…

Here's the real thing to know. Tells you everything, when Obama says "not optimal." How come he has no reluctance whatsoever about calling this movie disgusting, reprehensible, everything else he's called it, but he can't bring himself to issue a clear-voiced condemnation of Islamic terror. Do you know he still has not called this a terrorist attack? Everybody thinks after the debate that he and Candy Crowley cooked up there that he did call it a terror attack, and he didn't. And if people who watched the debate didn't watch the next day they don't know. Of course he didn't get a bounce out of that debate, folks… Obama didn't get a bounce. And everybody said he won. Ha-ha-ha. But he didn't. I told you.

On the media consensus that Obama won the second Presidential Debate last night…

The only way you can say, "Obama won on points" is to say that he got away with lying, and that assumes the audience is a bunch of idiots. That assumes that the audience doesn't know. And I'm telling you, the people watching the debate, if they're interested enough to watch the debate, know enough to know when they're being lied to. I don't believe that Mitt Romney has to point out, for example, every lie Obama is telling. It's not possible, by the way. There were too many last night.

On Joe Biden’s bizarre, buffoonish performance in the Vice Presidential debate…

You know, Biden forgets there are real people in this country who have been profoundly damaged by the economics of this country right now. Whether they blame Obama for it doesn't matter. A discussion of it comes up last night, people who watched this stuff take the election of a president seriously. You got a bad economy, you got an incumbent sitting there, young challenger, and the incumbent, the guy starts laughing in the middle of a discussion about this? These people are worried about their taxes, their Social Security, what the hell they're gonna have to pay to get us out of this debt, and we got old man Biden there laughing about it? And then he starts laughing in a discussion about security and dead ambassadors. You know, laughing about practically everything for the first half hour.

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 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 Rick Perry’s performance on last night’s Republican presidential debate…

Rick Perry managed to make himself disappear last night, like he was an A-List magician in Las Vegas, in the debate. I don’t know if he is finished after last night, but … I like his basic message. I like Perry’s basic message. But I don’t know that he knows yet how to run for President, run for the office of President… he was just too passive, last night, and I know maybe the thinking is “Let’s be calm and cool, collected, and exude an aura of confidence, an aura of ‘I belong here’.” But there needs to be some energy. Perry needed to dominate last night. Somebody needed to hit Mitt Romney in the back with his advisors show up at the White House on three different occasions to advise Obama’s people on implementing Obamacare. I thought it’d be a natural for Perry to do that. Or for Newt. Or any of them. Herman Cain. It did not happen. He needed to dominate and he didn’t dominate last night.
