Pearls of Wisdom

"The Republicans keep giving away core beliefs. They just throw away their ownership of the concept of lower taxes equaling economic growth and increased prosperity and freedom and liberty for people. They just threw that away, gave it to Obama."

"Raising taxes on everybody normally would be horrible political news. It would be bad for the party that did it. But, no! According to the New York Times it's a marvelous achievement for the Democrats and Obama, because they've taken 'uncertainty' off the table. People can now relax. It's done and it's fixed."

"The American people are frustrated because the Republicans don't seem to know what they're up against. Republicans, and even the conservative media, to this day, do not seem to really get it."

"I don't think the people in Washington have the slightest clue what you're going through. If you go to Washington, you know what? Every restaurant's open and profitable. All the shops are open. The unemployment in Washington and the surrounding environs is 3%. Washington's where all the money is, and everybody in Washington is doing well, and nobody's being fired or laid off. They're getting raises!"

"Don't misinterpret my tone, but I'm being honest. I don't think that there is a person in American media who has done more to illuminate and explain who the Democrats are and what they're doing and how they're getting away with it than I have. I don't think there's anybody that could even come close."

"The problem is that of the people who vote, a majority doesn't understand -- and, furthermore, don't care. They don't have any problem with what's going on. They don't think that it's the Democrats who are racist. They don't think it's the Democrats who are sexist. They don't understand that it is the Democrats waging War on Women, not the Republicans. They don't understand it, and they don't care to understand it."

"Washington's where all the money is, and everybody in Washington is doing well, and nobody's being fired. Nobody's being laid off. They're getting raises, in fact. They don't have the slightest clue in Washington what this economy is actually like for people like you."

"Open Line Friday where your host, El Rushbo -- that's me, for you low-information voters -- takes the biggest show busy career risk since Beyonce left Destiny's Child."

"Obama even admitted earlier this week that what he pulled off was one of the most profound political achievements in 20 years, and he's right. He got the Republicans to agree that their tax cuts, particularly for the rich, led to the recession that we're in. So with more Americans now, quote, unquote, 'understanding the economy,' that's what they think."

"Raising taxes and having government increase has never led to an expanding private sector. It never has, outside of World War II and maybe similar events like that. But in standard, normal, every day economic activity, a growing government does not equal a growing private sector. It can't happen."

"I'm gonna tell you right now, January 4th, there is not gonna be any spending cuts. We're not gonna get entitlement cuts. Who in the world thinks that? What are they smoking?"

"The real money in this country is still in the hands of all those people in the middle class. There aren't enough rich people to balance the budget. The rich people's taxes are gonna generate $60 billion and Obama just gave ten billion of that away for Sandy relief. People are falling for outright lies."

"I want to see some historical evidence that we have succeeded in getting Democrats to agree to real spending cuts. I don't think you can find any."

"We're $16 trillion in debt. We're heading in another four years for 20, minimum, $20 trillion dollars in debt, and nobody's doing anything about it. We're trying to kick the can down the road so that people who are alive today will not be when this has to be dealt with. Pure and simple."

"The success of the Reagan years was one of the biggest threats the Democrats ever faced, because the success of the Reagan years demonstrated how wrong Democrats are, how dangerously wrong they are."

"You know, they report the unemployment rate one week, and a week or two later they revise it, and that's when you get the real number which is never reported. The same thing with the number of applications for unemployment. It's always revised, and the revision is always higher."
