Pearls of Wisdom

"It is clear what Obama's doing, and it's clear what he thinks of this country. His reelection hinges on him being able to mobilize the ignorant, the shallow, the uninformed, the uneducated, the dumb, and the stupid. That is who he's appealing to."

"Is there a different air supply for Republicans? Is there a different water supply for Republicans? If there is, I want to know. I want to know where these Republicans who want contaminated food are buying their food. I want to know where Republicans who are contaminating the water are getting theirs. So that I can survive."

"You know, you have to strive to have an audience smaller than MSNBC.  CNN has managed to pull it off."

"NBC has 'apologized' for doctoring the 911 Zimmerman tape, but it's not really an apology.  It's the chintziest thing. They don't even apologize to Zimmerman.  It's pathetic.  If you're gonna apologize, you gotta apologize to the guy who you tried to destroy!"

"The Democrats haven't advanced a budget in three years, because they don't want anything on paper for which they will be held accountable. They don't want anything on paper that could be run against."

"You Obama people really want to try to tell the rest of us he's this stupid? Is that what you want us to believe? We want to go from the smartest, most sophisticated, most erudite, messianic political figure in our history in 2008, to 'He's stupid'? Is that really what you want us to believe? 'Cause I simply refuse to accept the notion that Obama doesn't know what he's talking about."

"We are as divided a country as we've ever been, and the author of the division is the president himself. He's counting on most people being too uneducated to realize that everything he said in his press conference about the court's a flat-out lie. He knows it's a lie, and he knows he's lying."

"I live in Realville, and I have a profound respect for the intelligence of my audience.  I can't relate to what Obama's doing.  I wouldn't lie to you to try to advance my own fortunes."

"Obama exploits people who have nothing and whose only hope of getting something, they think, is if a president gives it to 'em.  I can't relate to that.  I understand it.  He's a welfare state guy. He's a redistribution of wealth guy. He wants people to love him because he wants them to think that he's the only reason they've got anything.  And we've gotta peel off some of those people somehow." 

"Obama sees the law as a tool to power. Nothing more, nothing less. It deserves no special respect or reverence. It's just another aspect of the entire political spectrum to be competed in and to win, and it has really no special place."

"It's about time people started fighting back on this. The American people love the concept of a team. You have to have the right people on the team, but we are a team here. There is a team that's opposing this president, and attempting to make him a one-termer this November at the ballot box."

"The president believes that Republican policies are, you're on your own, and if you fail, that's fine.  If you don't, it's fine, we don't care about you. You're on your own. The country's never gotten anywhere with people being on their own."

"Obama needs as many people as possible dependent on the government.  He needs as many people as possible thinking all is lost without the government, make as many people possible as dependent.  It's a reelection strategy and tool.  And that's what Obamacare is primarily about."

"Obama needs this recession.  He needs as many people as possible dependent on the government.  He needs as many people as possible thinking all is lost without the government.  It's a reelection strategy and tool.  And that's what Obamacare is primarily about."

"Keith, you are not a $10 million chandelier. You're the guy wearing a $50 lampshade sitting in the corner of the room that nobody else wants to go in. That's what you are.
Not a $10 million chandelier."

"There's no economic growth whatsoever. There's no opportunity, no prosperity with the Obama budget, with the Obama way of life. They don't believe it's possible anyway unless they are in total charge of the command-and-control and assigning it to people."

"New slogan.  Obama in 2008, it was 'Hope and Change.' In 2012: 'Dopes and Change.'  That's the campaign slogan. Or rope dopes, dopes and hopes, whatever, but you gotta have dopes in there, because that's who is being targeted."
