"What they have told you and written about Clarence Thomas for 15 years has been a lie. What has been true is, he's always been an intellectual giant, he has always been an intellectual leader, he's always been an independent thinker, he's always been eminently qualified."
"Consumer confidence is down because there wasn't enough bipartisanship. Consumers have no confidence because Congress didn't get along with itself. Not because they don't have jobs; not because there's no prospect for jobs; it's because the Congress didn't get along."
"Folks, it really is easy to understand liberalism. It's challenging to admit it. It's challenging to admit that there are Americans who want to do what Obama is doing, but it's easy to understand how they do it."

"We're in summer reruns here -- and last year's jobs plan was a lot like what this year's jobs plan is gonna be and the jobs plan two years ago and three years ago, and that is: Spend more government money."
"Common sense tells us all that the longer you pay people to not do anything, the longer they'll not do anything."
"If there's anything close to a political certainty in 2012, it's that Barack Obama will get more than 90 percent of the African-American vote. But that doesn't mean every black Obama supporter will vote for him happily."
"Everything that has been tried by this regime has failed to stimulate private sector economic growth. Now, you and I both know that this regime had no intention of stimulating private sector economic growth. But they want people to think that's what they wanted to do."

"There is no stimulative effect of unemployment benefits. Whether you borrow the money or print it or get it via taxes, you still have to take it from someplace in the private sector to give it to somebody else in the private sector.
