Pearls of Wisdom

"CNN, since the 1980s, has been doing everything it can to discredit Reagan at every opportunity. Now all of a sudden: 'What a shame, Obama can't do what Reagan did! Aw, no. He can't cut taxes as easily.' Well, since when has CNN been in favor of that?"

"Obama and the Democrats know they can't jump-start the economy. Look at what we've tried here. How many trillions have been spent on 'stimulus' that has not worked? Even if they still believed in that, they know that there's not stimulus out there. There's nothing they can do to create private sector job growth."

"People are leaving the workforce and that's why the rate's going down! Jobs are not being created. And that's the Obama magic."

"Instead of 115,000 jobs being added each month, we ought to be seeing job numbers in the 500,000 to 600,000 level, if there were a real economic recovery going on."

"Food stamps are at a record high. Social Security disability is at a record high. So the transformation from a capitalist market system to authoritarian centralized welfare state continues, while Obama claims an improving job market."

"Barack Obama has decided that the only way to lower the unemployment rate is to kill off jobs. The unemployment rate went down one-tenth of a percent from 8.2% to 8.1%, but the number of people who left the labor force is at an all-time high."

"This is gonna sound to you like I'm trying to be funny and sarcastic, I'm not. This is really sad stuff. I think we can safely say that Obama's election strategy for getting the unemployment rate down is to kill jobs. As I have said for the longest time now: Pushing people out of the workforce drives down the unemployment rate."

"Under Obama, when the unemployment rate falls, the jobs situation is getting worse. The more people who drop out of the workforce, the more those people rely on government subsidies."

"All Obama is about is that 8.1%. He doesn't care about the number of jobs created."

"I saw a great little poster: 'Reaganomics: Start a business, become a gazillionaire in your garage. Obamanomics: Live in your parents' garage.'"

"The unemployment rate has not been this high for this long since the Great Depression. This is life in Obama's America. It's reality. This is not a cartoon; this is not a slideshow; this is not a socialist utopian slideshow with a woman named Julia."

"Reality is the enemy to the Obama administration."

"We don't have the money to support people not working! We are $16 trillion in debt. We don't have the money. We are borrowing it from the ChiComs, enabling them to ramp up their military complex. This is a horrible, horrible situation."

"The unemployment rate has not been this high for this long since the Great Depression. This is life in Obama's America. It's reality. This is not a cartoon; this is not a slideshow; this is not a socialist utopian slideshow with a woman named Julia."

"The only way Barack Obama can get the unemployment rate down is to kill jobs. That's the only way, and that's how he's doing it."

"There are some people for whom unemployment pays more than some of the jobs that are being created in this administration."

"Ted Turner was on Piers Morgan last night, the guy who replaced Larry King. And Ted Turner said (paraphrased), "Ah, you know, Romney wouldn't be bad. Romney wouldn't be bad president." If you're losing Ted Turner, things cannot be good for you. That would be Obama."

"Since when does a Drive-By Media outlet believe cutting taxes equals economic growth? The Drive-By Media have been arguing against that for I don't know how long."

"If the unemployment rate were 11% today, what do you think the prospects of Obama's reelection would be? They would be over."

"During the Great Depression, when whatever the numbers were who were unemployed, they weren't comfortable. There was a sense of urgency. They would dig ditches if they had to. They will pick cotton if they had to."

"The number of people in the job market is based on something called the Household Survey at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And do you know what they do there? They call people and ask, 'Have you looked for to a job in the last four weeks?' And whatever the answer is gets tabulated. That's how scientific it is. That's where we are."

"To understand Barack Obama, you have to admit something, and it's a very difficult thing to do. Not for me, 'cause I know. But it's a very difficult thing for most people to admit, even though he said so in his own words (almost exactly the words I'm gonna use to you) that we've elected a president who doesn't believe this country has ever worked. It's been a fraud."

"The ideal citizen to Barack Obama is someone who is totally dependent on government, has no independent thought, and no independent life. Whatever is needed, there's something in Washington where you can go to get it."
