On what it will take for Mitt Romney to win the election…

Romney is gonna have to start treating Obama the same way he did Newt and Santorum, folks. He’s gonna have to do that… Romney has got to realize that running a campaign on traditional American values is not enough. Sad to say. That’s the hard, cold reality. Simply running around and telling people he’s gonna fix the economy – “What? What are you gonna do with the economy? Yeah we all know it stinks – what are you gonna do? What’s the plan?” … 59 points? Can you tell me three of them? You can’t. So don’t tell me there’s 59 points. He may as well have zero, you can’t tell me what any of ‘em are. Big whoop. It’s not enough to say you’re gonna repeal Obamacare. Because there’s no accompanying talk from Republicans in congress that have similar type energy. This has to be about Obama. This campaign has to be about Obama and Romney’ll have to look at Obama the way he tarred Newt and the way he tarred Santorum… But Obama’s not black, he’s not Martian, he’s not white. He’s the Destructor and he’s gotta be stopped! In order for the country to be the country Romney thinks it is. This guy, I don’t care what his race is. It’s all about policy. It’s all about a program of economic destruction that cannot be an accident.

On the pessimism in the Republican establishment about denying Obama a second term…

As a practical matter, it helps to have a fight over the Presidency to ensure victories in the House and Senate – how are these House and Senate victories gonna happen if attitudinally you think you’ve lost the Presidential race? What is the campaign – what would the consultants say – the way to win the Senate is to go out and say to the American [people] – “Look we know, that we’re not going to beat Obama, and therefore, we still have to find a way to stop him. And that’s what we need you for. We need you, and your money and your votes to vote for your Republican Senate candidate and your House candidate.” Is that the campaign? Well obviously not – even if somewhere in the bowels of the RNC they actually decide to proceed on the assumption that Obama can’t be beat. They obviously will not say so publicly but the fact that they believe it will have to have some impact attitudinally on the campaign. Do they have a meeting with Romney or Santorum – whoever gets the nomination – “By the way, we really know you can’t win this – and we’re going to be behind you! We’re gonna fight for you… but we really need your help here in shoring up the House and maybe winning the Senate.” Now how does that happen? How do you run a Presidential campaign when your head you have conceded, while at the same time campaigning to win the Senate and hold the House? Maybe there are expert consultants who can tell me this.

On the liberal double standard as it applies to the religious beliefs of politicians…

Isn’t Rick Santorum being attacked for having and expressing Catholic beliefs? I mean who is the better Catholic example – Ted Kennedy or Rick Santorum? And who has been lionized by our media? And who is being castigated, laughed at, made fun of, and destroyed, or an attempt to destroy is being made. It’d be Santorum. Aren’t we constantly told that we must always respect people for their religious beliefs? Or does that only apply to Democrats and Muslims? … Christian beliefs – “We’re going to come down hard on you if you express yours.” Nobody ever attacks Obama for his religious beliefs when he trots ‘em out for political purposes.

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 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.
