Pearls of Wisdom

"We've been played on this immigration business. We've been played from the beginning."

"I try to put myself in the position of being a Republican in the House or the Senate. I don't understand how they don't see what this amnesty is going to do to their party. I can't for the life of me understand it."

"Our graphic artist Michaele came up with an absolutely hilarious picture of me seeking my way to the shadows."

"A number of congressmen and staffers, according to The Politico, are threatening to quit or retire because they can't afford their premiums under Obamacare! So the same people who gave us this monstrosity, the same people who didn't have the guts to vote against this monstrosity, are now bellyaching that they can't afford it."

"It's designed to be unaffordable for an increasing number of people so that they panic when they can't get it and they start screaming bloody murder after they get upset at Kanye West for cheating on Kimmy. Then when they figure out they can't afford health care they start bellyaching about that and the regime says, "Don't worry about that. We'll cover you. We'll just have single payer. You know what? We'll make it for you, and we'll make it free." This is the design. This is how it's all supposed to roll out."

"There's nothing affordable about the Affordable Care Act. It's gonna cost $20,000 for your average family of four. And for people making $30,000 a year, affordable is now 10% of what they earn. You make 30 grand a year, it's entirely understandable that you should spend $3,000 after taxes -- wait. You don't pay any taxes -- at least income taxes -- on your health care. My gosh, that's more than a big screen. That's more than an iPhone and two years of service on a contract."

"There must be some sense of entitlement to holding public office."

"Tebow's spirituality is the reason the media hates him. Tebow's spirituality is the reason he's made fun of by the media. Tebow's spirituality is the reason people are so afraid of what he might bring to a locker room. And yet the owner of the Patriots says, 'That's the stuff of winners. And we're happy to have him.' It's a heartwarming thing."

"If you have 11 or 12 million people here that can't vote right now, not legally, but someday will be able to, and 70% of those people are gonna vote Democrat, how in the world does the Republican Party stay viable when they get 30% of whatever that number of millions of new people is? If I can figure this out, why can't the Republicans?"

"You all know how much I enjoy golf. You know how much I used to talk about it. Just to illustrate, I didn't even realize 'til last night that the US Open started today. I was shocked. I don't even remember how I came across the news. That's how focused on other things I've been."

"If I were a Republican in the House, or the Senate, there is no way I would want to participate in something that is going to effectively negate my party. And yet so many Republicans seem eager to do this. It doesn't make sense to me. So there has to be something I'm missing. Are this many people, Republicans, this blind? Or are there this many Republicans that know something we don't know about these people in the shadows and how they intend to vote? I don't know, folks."

"Maybe there's a bunch of moderate to liberal Republicans who don't care about being winners. They just want to be elected and be in power. Whatever that means. Maybe they really don't care."

"You've got legalized Hispanic immigrants to this country who are now citizens. Do you think that they're eager to have an influx of whatever numbers of millions it is that are going to be competing with them for work?"

"We own the House. Why don't we do this? We could stop everything they want to do. We would force Obama to do it by executive order. We can stop everything they want to do, but we don't. We don't push back. I guess we have a mind-set of permanent minority."

"As Obamacare is implemented, people are going to seek and people are gonna offer affordable alternatives. It's a fluid, free market still, despite what the Democrats are trying to do."
