"Obama believes in trickle-down government, not trickle-down economics. I'm telling you, the guy's an economic bigot."
"There will always be a select group of people, who, because of who they are, their upbringing, or just their own innate ambition, whatever obstacles are in their way, they're going to work around them. They will find a way past them."
"We don't have a president who believes in America, not in American Exceptionalism, not in the America of our founding. That's just the way it is."
"You know what I think? I think that Harry Reid is doing for Mitt Romney what Rahm Emanuel did for Chick-fil-A. We're not yet at that degree, but what's happening here, it's obvious."
"Dingy Harry loves throwing out baseless, ridiculous, slanderous accusations, and then hiding behind the fact that he's a member of the Senate and can't be sued, or any number of other protections."
"The economy under Obama has been so bad that there are over two million fewer jobs to have in this country. That's why everybody talks about job growth. It's not as though there are jobs unfilled out there. It's that there aren't any jobs besides those that we have."
"What must be done cannot happen under Obama. It will not happen. He doesn't understand it. He is in an ideological straitjacket. He is obstinate and stubborn, and he's not all that smart. And we are paying the price."
"Everything is just a game to the elites that report this stuff, that calculate it, that disseminate it. We need to be growing by 400,000 or 500, even 600,000 jobs a month, coming out of a recession. That's what's standard. That's what's normal. This isn't even a recovery."
"This is the United States of America that we're talking about. Our GDP ought to be 5%, 6%, 7%, not one-and-a-half, not 1.7, not 1.9."
"If Obama gets four more years, the whole concept of digging out is going to take on a whole new meaning."
"I want everybody to have the chance I had. I want everybody to be able to pull off what I pulled off in whatever field of endeavor they want. Whatever success is to you, I want you to be able to reach it, however you define it."
"I cringe when I see opportunity being squelched and shut off for people. I really mean it when I say I want everybody to have the same opportunity I had. I love sharing good things that happen."
"Obama doesn't understand self-reliance, and he doesn't believe in it. And the reason is, he's a liberal, and they don't believe in people having the innate ability to provide for and care for themselves."
"Sometimes I feel like I'm beating my head against a wall. Sometimes I really wonder if spending all this time on economic news makes any sense anymore."
"More and more people are becoming more dependent each day on the government. The welfare rolls, or the dependency rolls are growing; they're not shrinking. And that growth is being promoted and advertised and sought by this administration."
"Obama's a wet blanket. He's a wet blanket that is holding this nation back while sitting there telling us that his policies have worked and that the only way out of this mess is to not go back to the failed policies of the past."
"I don't think this man has ever understood what the American dream means. Mr. President, I don't think you have the slightest idea. You wouldn't talk like you do. You wouldn't act like you do, if you understood the whole concept of the American dream."
"I'm really lucky. Life is my work. I don't know how to put it better than that. Living my life, I'm working. That's as lucky as you can get."
"The biggest mistake in the world is to engage liberals literally on what they're talking about."
"Even my friends don't think I really work. Because they never see it. I mean, who can see brain neurons firing? Nobody can see that. Nobody can see mental maneuvering or thoughts or ideas spring to life, particularly when their primary expression comes later in the form of words, spoken words."
"Everybody believes that big businessmen are Republicans. That big corporate CEOs are conservatives, and they believe in individualism and self-reliance, and they don't like big government and so forth. Nothing could be further from the truth today."
"Economic justice to Obama is the government taking from the achievers -- he doesn't look at 'em as achievers. He looks at 'em as thieves or people who've been nothing more than lucky."
"Liberals, the American left, the Democrat Party cannot ever allow the country to be unified. They just can't. They cannot survive without conflict. They cannot survive without chaos. They cannot survive without an us versus them."
"Obama's whole history, his whole electoral history, is to find dirt on opponents or make it up and run them out of the race before the election. That's the Axelrod-Obama modus operandi".
