"It's much easier if you're a commentator Inside the Beltway, for example, to look at Obama as just the next in a long line of Democrat presidents. You plug Obama into the hole that you plug all presidents into, and there are assumed to be things that all presidents have in common."
"It's much easier just to plug Obama into the traditional cliched puzzle and discuss him and the events of the day within that framework. I think he's totally outside that framework, as I've spent the last four years saying."
"I'd love to make liberalism a minority political enemy if I could. I would love to. The objective is to beat them. I don't think that there's anything, quote, unquote, criminal about that."
"It'll never be admitted that Obamacare was the cause of higher premiums. It will never be written, not in our lifetimes, that Obamacare led to old people being told, 'Just take a pill. We don't have the money to spend on you today.'"
"I just want to make it official. I am withdrawing my name for consideration for secretary of business. I'm not gonna allow the regime to create another bubble, and put me in it, have everybody comment on that as another feint or distraction from what's really going on, which is the fiscal cliff and where we're gonna end up."
"When somebody's a journalist, you can make book on the fact that ideologically they're liberal.

"The Democrat Party, from the White House on down, is heavily invested in rewriting the history of events so that the Republican Party and conservatism is to blame, all the way back to the founding of the country, for everything that is wrong."
"This whole fiscal cliff is so boring to me, actually, 'cause I know how this is gonna end up. I know how it's always gonna end up. The budget never gets cut. There will not be any entitlement reform, because neither party is willing to go to the mat for that."
"The Democrats will never, ever willingly, voluntarily cut entitlement spending. The only way that's gonna happen is if they're dragged kicking and screaming and when they have no choice."
"A shooting at a school, and it's just awful. It is terrible, incomprehensible. But I'm gonna tell you something. As we sit here at this very moment, you know it and I know it. There are liberals trying to find a way to blame this on conservatives or Republicans."
