Pearls of Wisdom

"Are you sick and tired yet of hearing how Paul Ryan wants to kill Medicare? You know what's going to kill Medicare is Medicare. Medicare is going to eat itself. Medicare is going to implode if something isn't done about it, unless somebody does something to save it."

"Obama is conducting a war on seniors. Medicare, if untouched, is bankrupt in 11-1/2 to 12 years, and what is Obama doing? How is Obama 'saving' it? He isn't. He's taking $711 billion out of Medicare. When all is said and done, it'll lose close to a trillion dollars."

"Obama admitted to our old buddy Jacob Tapper at ABC News that he was cutting $700 billion out of Medicare, and he swore to keep it in there. By the way, do you notice that Obamacare is no longer 'deficit neutral'? It's going to blow a trillion dollar hole in the budget next year."

"By the time it's all said and done, when you factor interest over a number of years, you could accurately say that Obama is taking a trillion dollars out of Medicare and putting it elsewhere in Obamacare. It's not just an accounting move. It's a real transfer of money, in order to keep the overall reported cost down."

"The Democrats, you see, folks, are stuck in this play. They never have to defend their ideology. They never have to discuss their ideology! They always hide it. They camouflage it. That's why they say things that are distractions. That's why they lie about who they are and what they believe."

"I really wish people would accept that we're going to have to beat the media. Not convince them. Not persuade them. They're no different than the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. They're no different than the Obama campaign. They're an extension of it."

"I think one of the greatest things that's happening here, one of the most positive effects of the selection of Paul Ryan in this campaign, we are already talking more about the issues, and we are double down serious, double down truthful on Medicare, the economy."

"Here is the leader of the free world: 'Michelle won't let me eat fried Twinkies.'"

"Now, I also have to admit, folks, if you would have told me 20 years ago that in my 25th year on this program Medicare would be one of the prime topics, I would have told you, 'Well, then I won't have anybody listening to my show if that's what I'm talking about.' Because if I'm talking about Medicare, Social Security, you know what that means? That means I'm finished. Now look what's happened. It has effervesced."

"I want to apologize for being so frustrated with Mr. Snerdley, but he was really stupid yesterday."

"If you are on Medicare or if you soon will be on Medicare, you have a lot to fear. You need to be very, very afraid of Obama. Obama and Obamacare are actually hastening the end of Medicare."

"You can't convince people that a Democrat is going to cut Medicare. They don't believe that."

"Joe Bite Me, the vice president of the United States is in Danville, Virginia, got an audience, it says here, a clear population of minorities. For those in Rio Linda, that means there's some black people in the crowd."

"How do you fight propaganda? You gotta turn into a propagandist yourself and you've got to abandon the truth. Some of us don't know how to do that. Not believably. Not consistently."

"By the way, do you notice that Obamacare is no longer 'deficit neutral'? It's going to blow a trillion dollar hole in the budget next year. (long sigh) I wonder if Debbie 'Blabbermouth' Schultz likes her health care plan, because it's Paul Ryan's plan. We have since learned that the option you get if you opt out of Medicare under Ryan's plan is the same plan that Debbie 'Blabbermouth' Schultz has."

"CNN, if you want to know why nobody's watching, here it is. You want the names? Candy Crowley. Soledad O'Brien. What makes you think that people want to watch them? You want to make the claim that you guys are objectively in the middle? Soledad O'Brien's doing McCarthyism, Charlie McCarthyism. She is a puppet. She's mouthing for somebody."

"Obama cut $741 billion out of Medicare, and there are people who will not believe it simply because Democrats don't cut. Democrats care about people. Republicans don't. That is etched in the American fabric for so many years now."
