"The Obama people are showing themselves to be bigger sore losers than Algore was in 2000, and all they've lost is one debate. I can't wait to see how they act when they lose the election. It'll be fascinating."
"We have a country in the tank! We have a country going down the tubes. We have a president who cannot cite one thing from his previous 3-1/2 years and say, 'You want more of this? Vote for me!' Just the opposite."
"Romney showed that it's possible to go toe-to-toe with liberalism and win -- and, in fact, that it's amazingly easy. What was illustrated was that Obama doesn't have any ideas."
"If we've got polling data now that shows Romney ahead wherever he's ahead, I think he's been ahead for months, or weeks. I don't think it happened overnight. I think we've been misled for whatever reason."
"They really believe that the Romney who showed up at the debate was a fraud. They believe that the Romney in the ads that they've created is who he really is. This is breathtaking to me."
"The Barack Obama in the debate is the Barack Obama we see at every press conference, the stuttering, the hemming and hawing, the filibustering, the refusal to answer questions.
The Barack Obama you see is the one on the teleprompter primarily from 2008, and the first year of his presidency. That's Obama to you. To us, Obama is average. He doesn't excel in anything. He can read the teleprompter really well and he can make other people's words sing."
"Romney had just a fine old time in that debate knocking down every lie Obama told, and yet Axelrod and the gang tell us that Obama was so flustered and so shocked at the lying Romney who showed up, he didn't know what to do! Romney was telling so many lies that the smartest brain in politics froze."
"Do you realize Big Bird got over a million dollars in stimulus money? Money ostensibly for shovel-ready jobs went to PBS."
"To us, Obama is average. He doesn't excel in anything. He can read the teleprompter really well and he can make other people's words sing. When he's on his own, no great shakes. And I'm not saying that because he's liberal and I'm conservative. I'm giving an honest, objective analysis of Obama's talents."
"The reason Obama had to hold his tongue was that he can't tell the American people the truth about what he really wants to do. That's why we're not getting any second-term agenda specifics from him."
"I'll make a prediction to you. If Romney wins this, we are going to see signs of an economic uptick very quickly. If Romney wins this, that will equate to confidence, more certainty in terms of what the economy is going to be vis-a-vis government policy, taxes and Obamacare. It's gonna be practically immediate."
"To show you the depths to which they've sunk: One of the prominent items in their latest ad campaign is Big Bird and how Romney wants to kill Big Bird. Here we've got a dead ambassador. We've got a foreign policy falling apart. We've got an economy falling apart with more bad news on the economy today, and all Obama can do is run ads saying, 'Romney wants to kill Big Bird!'"
"Folks, guess what? Suddenly it's okay to question the polls. Yep. It's okay. But just remember last week, Politico had a story making fun of me for telling you to ignore the polls, that they weren't accurate. And now what they made fun of me for, they are doing themselves."
"Christopher Columbus didn't do one thing worthwhile. I'm not exaggerating. That's who he is to the left, particularly the real radical left and a lot of teachers."
"Everybody thinks green energy -- well, Obama does -- thinks green energy is the next big thing. And it's not there yet. There just isn't any green energy business yet. It may happen someday, but it hasn't happened yet."
"The truth is a powerful thing, and that's what Obama can't deal with. That's what the Obama campaign can't deal with is the truth of who Romney is and who we are, and that means they are ripe for the picking."
