"For crying out loud, France has a higher credit rating than we do. France! They produce cheese and perfume, for crying out loud."
"Somebody who announces an address to the nation at one o'clock and shows up 53 minutes later has no regard for the public. Somebody who announces remarks at one o'clock and shows up at two o'clock has flipped the public the bird."
"Obama can't find anywhere to cut, but there's a lot more room for spending, a lot of room for more taxes, a lot of room for more regulation, a lot of room for more transformation, a lot of room for more destruction of the capitalist system of this country."
"This is not the Democrat Party of my dad's era. This is the DNC of this era, and the movers and shakers of this DNC are the thrilled at what's happening here."
"A new CNN poll just released says six in ten Americans think the economy's still getting worse, and 75% believe the nation's doing badly. Who the hell are these other 25%? I'll tell you who they are. Unions!"
"People are fainting again when Obama speaks, mostly out of desperation now."
"I just want to put another thought in your head. If you think that the Democrat Party is not thinking Hillary Clinton as a primary opponent to Obama, you are not thinking. Folks, if Hillary Clinton were president right now and the same circumstances existed, they would be thinking about Obama primary-ing her. Not 'marrying,' primary-ing."
"So you ask in retrospect, how did Obama get elected? That's not hard to explain. The media drummed up such hatred for George W. Bush, combined with the phony spin package that The Messiah had come and attached to Obama, and, voila!"
"Obama and his fellow Democrats have finally been able to convince the world that we are just another country, after all. There's nothing exceptional about us or our economy."
"We've had a AAA credit rating since 1917, all the way through World War I. The Great Depression, we had a AAA credit rating. World War II, we had a AAA credit rating."
"Obama doesn't have the concept of American greatness in him."
"We lost our credit rating, and for what? For what great purpose did we lose it? Except an ideological hatred of American capitalism and a love of class warfare, what did we lose our AAA rating for?"
"There are no more moderates left in the elected parts of the Democrat Party. They are all far-left, fringe liberals. There is no 'great center' to be found to compromise with in the Democrat Party."
"So now we know what Obama got for his birthday: A downgrade of our credit rating, probably exactly what he wanted in his heart of hearts."
"You may not want to admit that this is being done on purpose, but if you sit down and you spend just 15 minutes analyzing what has happened in the last two and a half years, I don't know how you can come to any other conclusion."
"The Democrats are trying to use the downgrade just like they use every crisis: As an excuse to raise taxes."
"The old definition of 'insanity' is 'doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result.' We've got it! We have insanity at the upper levels of our government."
"Obamageddon. Barackalypse Now. The only silver lining I can find is that, as far as 2012 goes, Obama's a Debt Man Walking."
"Obama is always running around complaining and whining and moaning about all that he inherited from George W. Bush. Well, he inherited a AAA credit rating and an unemployment rate of 5.7%"
"In the last two and a half years, we've had plenty of time to assess what hasn't been working and change it. Instead, we have doubled down in what hasn't been working.
"We have doubled and tripled what hasn't been working. We piled what doesn't work on top of what doesn't work, on top of what doesn't work."
"Obama taught law for 12 years at the University of Chicago, and many people have pointed out have you ever heard -- has the media ever found -- a student of Obama's who talks about how inspired he was by Obama? No. There is no such person."
"A naked effort to get still more and more money to buy votes. A never-ending quest for power. That's why we lost our AAA credit rating."
"By the way, folks, do a Google search on it: 'Obama blames' as a Google search term returns more than 490,000 hits. 'Obama blames,' no quotes, returns 6,920,000 results."
"Obama blames...everybody but himself. Obama is a man-child; immature, over his head, out of his league, unqualified."
"So why has Obama delayed his Debt Man Talking speech from one o'clock to 1:30? Maybe it's to give his Wall Street friends more time to get their money out of the stock market for fear of what's gonna happen to the stock market when he finishes speaking."
"If, overnight or later this afternoon, something happens and this market goes crazy up, you and I both know there is nothing in reality -- nothing in Reality Heights -- that caused it."
"Barackalypse Now, Obamageddon, has as the primary purpose the discrediting of the Tea Party and Republicans, conservatives -- and, of course, the destruction of United States capitalism."
"The Democrats who would perhaps run against Obama would be those opportunistic who sense a weakness and think maybe they could get hold of things. Not because they worry about what's happening to the country but because it's an opening for them."
"There are 8,000-some-odd people who earn $10 million a year or more in this country. If you took everything they own, you would have $240 billion. There isn't the money to get anywhere close to solving our debt problem by raising taxes on, quote, unquote, 'those who can afford to pay a little bit more.'"
"If Obama really cared about trying to save the US economy, he would have taken this opportunity with the eyes of the world on him, to demand that his party in the Senate vote to pass Cut, Cap, and Balance."
"Did you who listen to all of that Obama speech, you who watched it on television while also listening to this program, hear anything inspirational? Did you hear anything uplifting? Did you hear anything about the greatness of America and how, 'Hey, we've been through tougher times than this, and we as Americans pulled together and we know...'? You didn't hear any of that."
