"My instinct tells me that something's happening here. I'm not trying to be melodramatic about it. I'm just saying that the Hispanic vote may not end up being as automatic for Obama as the conventional wisdom has it."
"The amount of debt that was racked up in previous administrations versus this one. I mean, it is just a disaster, and it's happening right in front of our faces -- and we're giving away cell phones! We're buying votes with Obama phones, and now we're working a partnership with the Mexican government."
"The Democrat Party cannot get by without a permanent underclass -- in need, incapable of taking care of itself -- and the last thing this regime is interested in is self-reliance and rugged individualism. They don't think people are capable of it."
"On the other side of the glass here I got the Official Obama Criticizer, Bo Snerdley, who is ostensibly as close to being as informed as I am. It's almost not humanly possible for anybody to be as informed as I am, but if anybody's close, Snerdley is."
"I'll tell you something else, a dirty little secret about polling. Undecided voters, the majority of them always go for the challenger. That's why they're undecided. If they're undecided, there's something wrong with the incumbent. That's just human nature and common sense."
"You know what I love? These media guys, they know that the deck is stacked and that they are the ones dealing from the deck. They know that they're in the tank for Obama. They know that there's not even a pretense of objectivity in the media now."
"You know, Peter Jennings could raise an eyebrow and affect public opinion. Those days are gone now. Now they have to actually go out and behave in the way they do now. It's funny to listen to them deny it."
"They're really out there lowering expectations for Obama in the debate on Wednesday night, and he's got a tough task. The guy can do nothing but lie."
"I thought we had an obesity epidemic! What is this 'curb hunger in America' business? You know what you do to curb hunger? You work! It's called a job."
"Obama goes to the United Nations and delivers one of the most sophomoric, embarrassingly naive, inane speeches a president has ever given at that body, and the media treats it as though it's one of the best."
"Conservatism is about humanity. Conservatism is about elevating standards of life for everybody, about expanding opportunity. Conservatism is the essence of compassion. Conservatism does not look at people and see incompetence. We don't look at people and see inability and stupidity. We don't look at people with contempt. The Democrats do."
"I believe in conservatism. I think that it's persuasive. If it's properly articulated, with passion and good cheer; if it's understood, if it's in your heart and you don't need a teleprompter to explain it."
"What kind of arrogance is it for us to assume that every illegal is coming here for a handout? Now, some do, obviously. In every universe of human beings, you're gonna have every group represented. But to assume that the vast majority are that way? I've always thought it was a mistake."
"Reagan did not get where he ended up with any assistance from the media. The media did not make Reagan. Too many Republicans want to rely on -- and too many conservatives, frankly, want to rely on -- the media being favorable to us and helping us. It's never going to happen!"
"Conservatism is founded in many things, but among those many things is the belief that everybody is capable of more than they think they are. Everybody's better at something or as a human being than they think they are."
