Pearls of Wisdom

"Here you have people who made their careers building up this sport of football and the people who play it and writing puff piece profiles about how great all these guys are. Now, inside of one or two seasons, it's stunning to me to watch how a piece of conventional wisdom or groupthink can totally overtake an entire a group of people to where they all end up thinking and writing and reporting the same thing about how dangerous it is."

"It's very rare that you have a liberal run as an unabashed liberal. They have to lie about it. They have to mask who they are. And in order for them to survive and thrive, they have to keep that up."

"The George W. Bush approval number was the result of four years of relentless, unstoppable media pounding. Obama's 37% approval is all on Obama. The media did not drive this down. The media has been trying to protect and shield Obama."

"Thirty-seven percent of the people now approve of Obama, the job that he's doing. That's down from 46% in October, 9% drop in just one month. We're not gonna see Wolf Blitzer go bonkers over this like he did when Bush hit 36%. We're not gonna see that."

"The Democrats' utopian dream is crumbling right before their very eyes, and they're angry to begin with every day and they're just angrier than usual with all of this on top of that, and then with Obama's approval numbers plummeting, I guarantee you they're terrified. This is not at all how this was supposed to go."

"Events sometimes are the biggest teachers, as opposed to words, lectures, and that kind of thing. There are a lot of people learning a lot of things [about Obamacare], and no matter what they've been told, it's happening to them. And therein lies an opportunity."

"The media has been trying to protect Obama. The media has been trying to shield Obama. Several in the Republican establishment in the so-called conservative media have even been trying to shield Obama."

"You know, I watched this Medal of Freedom ceremony at the White House today, and Snerdley came in to clean the ashtray. Now, that got everybody's face looking up. 'Snerdley cleans the ashtray?' Yeah, when he brought in the new coffee. 'Snerdley brings in the coffee?" Yeah, when he brings in his show prep. 'Snerdley does show prep?' Well, yeah. He does. He clears the wires. And the thing is on. Can you imagine what people are thinking, 'Snerdley cleans the ashtray? Really?'"

"The Democrat Party and the American left only survive when they successfully camouflage who they are, what they believe, and what they want to accomplish. It's the only way they win elections nationally. In certain states and districts they can go out and be honest about who they are, but not very many."

"One of the reasons MSNBC is plummeting is that I, not long ago, refused to play any content from them. I figured, why? I mean, it's genuine depraved partisan politics insanity, genuine extremist radical ignoramuses on that network."

"The bottom is falling out of Obama. I mean, it really is, and it's not because of any outside pressure. There's nothing about Obama's plummeting numbers that are artificial or manufactured. They are real, and they are on him, and they are on Obamacare."

"In the latest CBS poll, 29% of independent voters approve of Obama; 63% do not. By a 49 to 44% margin, independent voters want Obamacare repealed completely over fixing it. They just want it gotten rid of, and just 7% of Americans think Obamacare is working well and should be kept in place. Forty-nine percent want it broomed. But remember, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee a month ago? They were lunatics, hostage takers, demanding ransom, extremists, terrorists, dangerous radicals."

"It's very rare that you have a liberal run as an unabashed liberal. They have to lie about it. They have to mask who they are. And in order for them to survive and thrive, they have to keep that up. That's what the Limbaugh Theorem explains about Obama."

"Most people don't like controversy. They might like watching it, witnessing it and being entertained by it, but they don't like being part of it."

"People have their inner censors. They censor themselves privately based on external stimuli, and it's a self-protection type of behavior."

"You can't get more personal than health care is. It's life and death. It's bankruptcy versus solvency. And remember, the Democrat Party has portrayed it as second only to food in what you need."

"CNN's back to doing real news now. They're doing a story on Michelle Obama talking about how her husband sings in the shower."
