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.

On the liberal media’s strangely reverential coverage of the death of North Korea’s Kim Jong Il…

He was a murdering tyrant. His people are among the poorest in the world. And he’s spoken of here in reverent terms. The best thing he had going for him as far as these people are concerned was: He’s not a Republican. He wasn’t a conservative. You know, Hitler and Stalin both loved American movies too. This guy loved Michael Jordan. Wow, there’s really a lot to recommend him! Bachmann, and Perry, are stupid. Kim Jong Il – not a nut! It’d be a mistake to say that he’s a nut.

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.
