"The Democrats do not have one thing in Obama's record they can point to and say, 'You want four more years of this? Vote for us!'"

"Look around, folks, at the abysmal state of our culture. How on earth could reasonable people not win any debate on social issues? The left is intent on destroying every institution out there except for the state, every one of them."
"The Democrats and the media want to take the ability to publicly express our faith away from us. Suddenly the presidential campaign's all about 'social issues,' which is really code for 'religious issues.'"

"I'll tell you what the real outrage ought to be. The real outrage ought to be having to pay for things for other people no matter what it is."

And his intentions are massive new amounts of debt, higher tax returns to pay for it (ostensibly), more and more regulations on business."
