"By the way, I don't mean to pick nits here, but Obama has just ordered the flag at half-mast for 10 days for Mandela. He did not order the flag at half-mast at all for Lady Thatcher."
"The same thing people that faked the job numbers before the election are telling us now that a bunch of new jobs were created and the unemployment's rate is 7%, right? And we're just supposed to swallow that?"
"CNN International called the Vatican wanting a reaction to the 'attack' on il Papa by El Rushbo, which wasn't an attack anyway. I was amused."
"If you just landed from Mars and turned on the TV, you may be confused over who was Barack Obama and who was Nelson Mandela, based on the way it's being covered."
"The official White House tweet upon the death of Nelson Mandela is a picture of Obama in the jail cell, after the jail cell has been closed and memorialized itself, just as President Obama published a picture of himself sitting in the same seat in the same bus that Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus on. (laughing) You know, wait 'til Obama finds out the White House did this."
"Obama didn't know that the health care website wasn't working, and he didn't know that you weren't gonna be able to keep your doctor. What Snerdely? 'He didn't know he lived with his uncle.' That's exactly right. He got screwed by his own uncle."
"There are very few people that could have undergone what Mandela went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism. Most people who had been through what Mandela went through would have spent the rest of their life enraged and bitter and angry and would have tried to get even."
"Last night, on The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer had on Fareed Zakaria GPS. I guess Fareed had his location device with him. He calls himself "Fareed Zakaria GPS." When you're with him I guess you always know where you are."
"One of the most amazing things that Mandela said -- I love profundities, and I particularly love short, pointed philosophy. 'Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.' Is that not great? And it's great because it's exactly right. Resentment doesn't do anybody any good."
"Nelson Mandela would not qualify as a civil rights leader in this country, with that philosophy. They can't let it go. It's become too big a business. They will not let it go. Do you realize, when Mandela was inaugurated president, he invited as his special guests the white jailers from his Robben Island prison? He literally did forgive everybody."
