On the coming release of up to 30,000 illegal alien criminals from U.S. jails by the Department of Homeland Security, supposedly because of budget pressures under the sequester…

Let's not forget, thanks to Obama's various executive orders, ICE, the immigration people, no longer detain any illegal aliens unless they've been convicted of a serious crime. That's who we're talking about here. You have to commit a serious crime before we detain you, if you're illegal. So this isn't just a bunch of discriminated-against freedom fighters that have been wrongly jailed finally seeing freedom at all. These really are convicted criminals that are being released. And somehow it's being blamed on the Republicans. This whole idea is Obama's. He's the one that gives the order to Janet Napolitano to release these people. Republicans couldn't order this if they wanted to and yet they're going to end up getting the blame for it.

On the truth about Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s claims that the sequester will force the layoff of 800,000 Pentagon employees…

It's like a school furlough when they run out of money in a school district. They shut school down every Friday for a semester, if they run out of money. That's what the civilians will do, the 800,000. You know, my instinct told me, "We're not gonna lay off 800,000 civilian Pentagon employees over $45 billion. We're just not gonna do it!" Well I was right. They work a five-day week and what's gonna happen is they'll work a four-day week if sequester happens. Many of them will probably celebrate.

On ABC’s doomsday list of government service cuts that supposedly flow from the Sequester…

If only spending $15 more this year than last year is gonna cause the government to stop doing practically everything it does, and that's what that list -- I mean, that pretty much covers it. If we cut $40 billion, it's gonna keep the government from doing everything it does. What are they gonna do with the rest of the $3.7 trillion that they are gonna spend? What are they gonna do with the $3,700 billion they're going to spend? If all that stuff's gonna stop, all these 57 things and others are gonna stop because of a cutback of $40 billion, then what are they gonna do with the rest of the $3.7 trillion?

On Republican support for the sequester…

Why would Republicans support -- I mean, the Republicans support the sequester. They're on record as supporting it. Even though it's Obama's idea, they support it. It's the only way we're gonna get some budget cuts, and they're infinitesimal anyway. But the question is, why would Republicans support something that does what Boehner says it's gonna do? Threatens US national security, thousands of jobs could be lost. Boehner's calling the cuts deep, when they're not. I do not have an explanation. I don't think that there is a reasonable explanation for that. I don't understand it. Don't have an answer for you. It's too simple to chalk this up to incompetence. It may be that, but that's too simple. I don't have an answer. I can't explain it to you. All I know is that it doesn't make any sense.
