Pearls of Wisdom

"The sentiment in this country among the people is to maintain the Second Amendment. The America people don't want, by a vast majority, any gun control legislation. But that doesn't matter to people like President Kardashian, Eric Holder or any of the Democrat Party or the left."

"This assertion of executive privilege just shows how important Fast and Furious was. You can't claim it's just some low-level, rogue operation and then go out and assert executive privilege. You don't assert executive privilege for low-level operations."

"I know the regime was hoping to sweep Fast and Furious under the rug, and if they're hoping to sweep it under the rug with this, they've done precisely the wrong thing. But I don't know. Folks, this administration seems to be so incompetent, I don't know how good they are at managing a cover-up."

"This might be the first time in history that the original crimes are worse than the cover-up. Normally, nobody gets killed in a cover-up. We've already had people get killed here in Fast and Furious."

"If Fast and Furious started with Bush, unload on Bush. Why are they covering up for Bush? I'm sick and tired of Obama trying to cover up for Bush's bad deeds!"

"I guess you have to know when to fold 'em and when to Holder 'em. I think I'm gonna start asserting executive privilege. I'm an executive. Kathryn asked me a question, 'I'm assigning executive privilege, I don't have to answer that.' News media asked me a question, 'Executive privilege. I don't have to answer that.'"

"I'm gonna predict to you what's gonna happen. They will argue that they are upholding long-honored tradition of protecting the internal process of the executive branch. That's what the media will say about Obama. It's part of the separation of powers doctrine."

"You know that Obama's not reticent to blame Bush. Obama's blaming Bush for the economy, along with Europe. If they want to try to hang this on Bush and they say they got documents to prove it, why won't they release them?"

"To the media, 'Executive Privilege = Nixon.' The press thought Fast and Furious was nothing more than birthers, nothing more than kooks imagining a scandal. But with Obama asserting executive privilege, the press thinks, 'What are they trying to hide?' It makes them uncomfortable. They're gob-smacked by this right now.

"Obama put weapons in the hands of drug lords. He created crimes. He and Holder allowed weapons to end up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, and those cartels took action against Mexican citizens. And Obama knew that that was gonna happen. He wanted it to happen. He wanted there to be crimes with these weapons, folks."

"We all know that the Democrats engage in voter fraud. The idea that they succeed at it all the time is what bothers me. They don't. They'd win every election if they were this good at it. They would never lose. And of course they do lose."

"Obamacare doesn't care about the Constitution. Look at what he did last Friday with immigration. Just essentially granted amnesty for certain Hispanic people, just by executive fiat."

"I haven't gotten to one thing that I prepared for this show today, not one thing. These first two hours have been totally off the top of my head with, of course, in-show research going on, but there are other things."

"The whole point of Fast and Furious was to create mayhem in Mexico among drug cartels with American-made weapons easily procured so that you and I would stand up in outrage and demand tighter gun laws. It was deceitful. It was sneaky. It was going against the will of the American people. It was liberalism on parade."

"Do you really think that, that Obama's re-election chances are 'directly tied to the European economic crisis as it drags down growth in the US'? Come on, folks! How stupid do they think we are?"

"Have you people ever noticed how Obama handles himself at a press conference? He gets a question, he doesn't answer it for 20 minutes -- while sounding 'brilliant' -- and then moves on to the next question."

"Obama has given up on mainstream America. His bet is that his electoral chances are better coalescing all these disparate, extreme fringe groups into one voting bloc. And he thinks that bunch will outnumber mainstream America. That's what he's counting on. They said it was brilliant, but ain't gonna happen."

"The more we listen to the left, the less reason there ever is for truth. Truth floats, and wherever you want it to be is where it ends up, and whatever you want it to be, it is."

"Obama is obsessed with race. He is obsessed with coming off as authentically black. It's troubling. It's disturbing. Who does this kind of stuff? I can't quite put my finger on it, but this doesn't jibe. And we're talking about somebody who is president of the United States, and we have people excusing it! They're making excuses for it."

"Our friends at Breitbart have found 38 falsehoods. Breitbart is tallying things up. So far, they found 38 falsehoods in Obama's first autobiography. The left will defend this as simply an optimistic story about race and identity in the Twentieth Century or something along those gobbledygook lines."
