On glimmers of hope for conservatives and therefore the country…

I can't give you specifics. It's just a feeling -- and I assure you, it's not just blind hopefulness. It isn't wishful thinking. I just have a sense that Obama's not going to ultimately succeed in totally transforming this country into something other than how it was founded. Now, I'm not denying what he's done so far has been devastating, but there are signs out there. I keep talking about the states. In addition to fracking, do you know what else is booming? Fracking would be probably number one, and it's the most unreported characteristic that is responsible for economic growth. There literally is a boom in the oil industry in this country where fracking is taking place. The other thing that is growing this economy is the manufacture and sale of guns, and you know that.

On the politics of oil…

In their hearts and minds, Obama and the Left are loving gas prices go[ing] up – they just can’t say so. But they love it. And that’s why there’s not a huge effort to bring them down. There’s a huge effort to make you think they want to – but have you, how many stories have you seen where Obama says “Well, there’s really not a whole lot the President can do.” And Jay Carney – “Well, there’s not a whole lot the President can do!” In 2006, don’t forget, Chuck Schumer, and John F. Kerry, who by the way served in Vietnam, were mocking Bush for asking the Saudis to pump more oil. Arabs producing more oil makes prices go down. But somehow the U.S. pumping more oil won’t make any difference, that’s what they’re telling [us] – “No no! That’s the stupidest thing we ever heard of! That’s a tired, worn-out cliché. Drill drill drill – and for thirty years they’ve been saying ‘That’s what the Republicans always say, just drill drill – that’s going to take us two to three years if we start–“ Well thirty years ago, where would we be if we’d just started drilling drilling drilling. Chuck U. Schumer in 2008, Schumer to Bush: “Stop coddling Big Oil and the Saudis and get on ‘em and make ‘em pump more!” And Chuck U. wants Hillary to make ‘em do the same thing now. Obama – he can lower the sea level but he can’t lower the price of oil…

On the left's "no blood for oil" canard...

Where's our oil from Iraq? If anybody should have dibs on that, we should. At below-market prices. Contracts are going to everybody but us. Well, we got some but we're paying market prices for 'em. We had first dibs on that oil and we gave it away to prove we're nice guys. Part of the guilt of being a superpower. So we're going into Libya for the oil... I wish we were.
