Pearls of Wisdom

"The fact is, there's nothing Obama could have said that would change what he has done and what he has caused, and that was his problem. There's nothing he could have said to change people's perceptions of his failure. It's that simple. He struck out before this thing even started."

"The Romney campaign can't go lax. They can't count on talk radio to carry the day. They can't count on public perception of the Democrat convention, because I don't know how many people saw it the way I did."

"When I sat down to watch the Democrat convention last night, I was making myself physically ill. I felt physically ill. I did not want to watch this crap. I did not want to subject myself to it."

"I knew what the Democrats were gonna say. What made me feel sick, and literally I was feeling sick to my stomach, and I was depressed, not over what I knew I was gonna hear, but over the fact that so many people were gonna believe it. So many people were gonna fall for it."

"Did Kerry have an eyebrow job? He looked like he had a brow job, in addition to the Botox.

"I thought that speech last night was a halfhearted effort. This whole convention -- and it finally hit me last night. This entire Democrat convention, from beginning to end... It was highlighted by Bill Clinton, fortified by Joe Biden. This whole convention has been an explanation of failure, amid assurances no one could have succeeded."

"These people had three hours of uninterrupted primetime to tell the country anything, to make their case, to rise to the occasion, to rise to the moment. They had three hours to wrap this up, and they didn't do it."

"For the last five years, we have been presented with the idea that Barack Obama is superhuman. Barack Obama is unlike any of us or anyone else. And he isn't. In fact, he's much less achieved and much less accomplished than most who have gotten half as far as he has, and I think maybe what we saw was the best.

"This was boilerplate. It was liberal boilerplate. There was nothing new. The stuff in Obama's speech, I've been hearing all my life: 50 years. This stuff was older than the stuff he said four years ago."

"There's nothing Obama could have said that would change what he has done and what he has caused, and that was his problem. There's nothing, not a thing he could have said to change people's perceptions of his failure. It's that simple. He struck out before this thing even started."

"Within the bowels of the Democrat Party, there is a rising number of people -- an increasing number of people -- who think this is over. Their fears were confirmed after Obama's speech last night, and that number is going to increase."

"I, naturally, was right. Snerdley, of course, was wrong."

"I know that no matter how bad Obama's speech was, people on our side still think that it can be spun and presented as the best speech he's ever made. Although it isn't being spun that way. Nobody's even trying that. I mean, not even Debbie 'Blabbermouth' Schultz went there! She didn't even try it."

"It's a crying shame what has happened to the labor market, the job market in this country. For Obama to start making fun of tax cuts and all the real solutions to this problem."

"Little did I know how right I was when I warned the people of America that an Obama presidency would end up being nothing more than the second term Jimmy Carter never had."

"There's no progress anywhere. Not as a nation. We're not experiencing progress. These people don't like progress. What do you think environmental wackoism is? It's opposition to progress. It is an opposition to modernizing things. It's an opposition to improving standards of living."

"Environmental wackoism is opposed to progress. Gasoline was a buck seventy-five when this guy took office. It's close to $4 a gallon now! I guess to a lib, that is progress."

"I would love Rex Tillerson of Exxon being in charge of our energy program much more than Barack Obama or any of his little statist, socialist Trotskyites running in here and trying to so-call improve our energy situation, because there's not a damned one of them that has the slightest idea what they're doing."

"Your slogan is 'Forward,' and your heroes at this convention are dinosaurs, Ted Kennedy and Clinton. The theme is War on Women, and your two big stars are womanizers? One of your big stars you can't even invite, John Edwards. And then the piece de resistance, the grand finale is a dud, with Obama's speech."

"Everywhere you look, in comparison, the Republican convention was professional. They accomplished what they set out to accomplish. The Democrat convention was an absolute disaster."

"As far as I'm concerned, the people who aren't paying taxes don't get to run around claiming that they built everything, that the built the roads and that they built the bridges and so forth. If it weren't for the taxes of the 1%, the 2%, the 5% and the 10%, then the 89 million people who aren't working wouldn't be eating and making phone calls on."
