"The reason there is a never-ending refrain of criticism of conservatism is from people who still harbor anger over Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell."
"I'm a highly trained broadcast specialist and communicator. Perry, that's not what he does. He's a governor, an executive. I'm not excusing him or trying to make excuses, but we live in a television age, and it is what it is."
"If you look at Perry he's obviously a damn good governor. The people of Texas love what he does as governor. He wins reelection after reelection, but he doesn't come across on television particularly well. There's something about people coming out of Texas, there's this deer in the headlight thing when they show up on television."
"What is it, no matter where you go here, Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Oakland, they're urinating on people. What is it? Is there a syndrome that I missed?"
"This is the Associated Press: 'Obama Seeks Ideas on Reducing Black Joblessness.' Wait a minute. The Messiah is scouring for ideas? The president of the United States? Why doesn't he just do a workplace in the White House? Isn't that how they did it in the first term, the first year, bring in John Lewis and who else in there, Thomas 'Loopy' Friedman."
"The war within the Republican Party between the so-called establishment conservatives has always been going on. Gerald Ford versus Reagan, it was big in '76, and '80. What's brought it home here is Obama, because you and I think that if there's a anything that's gonna unite the Republican Party, it would be this! And it doesn't. And we can't believe it."
"We're now asking ourselves, if Moscow took over this country, if Putin came in, if we went full-fledged, no question about it wall-to-wall communism, would the establishment Republicans want to do something about it? Or would they want to share power?"
"I always say, 'There's always more to a story than what is ever reported about it in the media.' This is not a media criticism. The media always knows more than they report."
"We've got a serious problem, and the magic awaiting this country -- is conservatism, and I just wish and hope that we have a nominee who's not afraid to be pushed in that direction, because I think it's the solution."
"My brother has the most amazing ability, whatever he's thinking, he'll tell you. If he's constipated, he'll tell you he's constipated and ask you if you are, and doesn't it feel horrible."
"Politics is a business like any other, and it has its own track of success. It has its own ladder. I mean, there are certain things that you do have to do to advance."
"I bet you Perry has recited the name of that bureaucracy hundreds of times. He just had a brain freeze. It doesn't mean that his IQ dropped 30 points at that moment. It doesn't mean that his IQ dropped at all. We're being told now, and even from people on our side, it disqualifies him from being president."
"You always think Republicans are all on the same side, same objectives. No way. They want to win certain things. Some of our guys, I'm telling you, do not think Obama's beatable."
"What's the media reporting inaccurately about the economy? Try everything!"
