Pearls of Wisdom

original"People say, 'Why don't you run for office?' I couldn't. If you have to couch what you really believe, I couldn't do it because I don't believe for a minute Obama's in over his head."

"I am doing what I was born to do, and so are you. I was born to host; you were born to listen. Some of you were born to call while you listen. It all works."

"I don't think Obama runs around every day feeling genuinely sorry for the 99%. I don't think he's motivated by altruism. I think he's motivated by anger. He's got a chip on his shoulder, a number of them."

"I'll guarantee you that Warren Buffett could not have become Warren Buffett believing what Barack Obama believes."

"Are we supposed to go through political life not able to be honest in order to succeed? Is that what we're being told, you cannot be honest in politics and succeed? You have to lie; you have to make it up; you have to have a spin policy, a PR strategist; you have to say things that you don't believe in order to get where you want to go? "

"What does Warren Buffett do that is significantly different than what Romney did at Bain Capital? That is my question."

"You know, I love are busting myths. I just love it, especially medical myths. I just take great satisfaction in telling people, you know, the things they believe, the cockamamie BS that they believe for years was made pick up."

"The Democrats can say whatever they want about us, and there's never a concern from anybody that they are going to frighten away independents or any other voters."

"Rush Limbaughisms? So this babe thinks that this is forcing Romney to parrot me? If Romney were parroting me he would have the nomination sewn up!"

"In the so-called conservative media establishment, I know there are people who think that the view that the country's in peril and that we are facing a forever transformation from which we can't come back, they don't think that. To them, $16 trillion of national debt's no different than five trillion. As long as we keep making the interest payments we're cool."

"If you want to start attacking people for not understanding capitalism, just go to the Oval Office."

"I have a pet peeve with people who say and do whatever they do to curry favor with the media. Phonies, I despise 'em. I know it may be smart, but it's something I couldn't do. I couldn't be that disingenuous."

"The reason I couldn't run for office and do politics apparently is 'cause you're not allowed to be honest. Not as a candidate. You simply aren't allowed to be honest."

"People getting fired is part of life. It's nothing unique to capitalism. It's nothing unique to humanity."

"I can't get my arms around the fact that there are people born in this country who hate it."

"I still haven't gotten to the point where I wished, 'Gee, I wish I was younger.' I'm still looking forward to next year, still looking forward to getting older, even at 61."
