"The much larger concern here is how these elected officials are exacting their payback, and that payback that they're engaging in with each other manifests itself as massive inconvenience or violation of a bunch of circumstances against us, just as Obama's IRS scandal."
"A press conference on lane closures on the George Washington Bridge. We haven't spent this much time on a press conference on four Americans dying in Benghazi. We haven't spent this much time on the IRS scandal targeting the Tea Party. Yeah, there have been congressional hearings. But we haven't had anything like this degree of interest in any of the Obama scandals."
"Regardless who knew what, look at what actually happened here. In an effort for political payback, somebody in the governor's office decided to inconvenience the people of New Jersey and New York, particularly Fort Lee."
"So you had the governor's office, somebody there deciding to get even with another politician, to not actually do anything to the politician, but to make life tougher for citizens. It was citizens inconvenienced here in Fort Lee, and in some cases there are medical emergencies involved."
"If a lion in Africa attacks a wildebeest, all the other wildebeests scram and get out of there and offer no assistance whatsoever. You've seen it on all the animal shows. And the Republican Party is the same way. When one of them gets in trouble, nobody steps up to defend 'em."
"Yeah, politicians always played hardball with each other. Now, however, there seems to be a new willingness to play hardball by involving innocent civilians as the pawns. Now, the Obama hardball, the IRS, was targeted at conservatives, Tea Party people ... and here in New Jersey, it wasn't really the mayor of Fort Lee that was inconvenienced; it was the citizens of Fort Lee."
"If Obama were governor of New Jersey and it is lane closure controversy had happened while he was governor, and he's doing a press conference, he would go out there and say that the charges were all politically motivated. He would find somebody to demonize in the opposition party and say he didn't know anything about it, he hadn't had time, he's got far more important things to do than worry about this, and he's gonna get to the bottom of it."
"Do you think Obama will call Christie and offer some support? Do you, Mr. Snerdley? You think you might? You think Christie might get a supportive phone call from Obama, a "hang in there, buddy, it'll be okay" kind of phone call? Just a question."
"None of these guys that put my name in these stories ever hear what I say. They don't go to my website to find out. They don't get Rush in a Hurry."
"Okay, Christie just finished speaking. I was just gonna say that maybe he also needs to fire the person who comes out announces the end of press conferences. There's always a staffer that comes out and says, 'Okay, thank you very much, everybody,' and everybody leaves. Maybe he should have fired that person."
"Folks, the Rush in a Hurry email is one of the greatest values in all of high-tech media. It's a recap of the program every day, and it's el freebo. All you have to do is go to RushLimbaugh.com and sign up for it. It's fabulous and millions of people get it. And if you don't, you should."
"The Republicans lose every time they try this strategy of working together, bipartisan, cooperation. It doesn't win them anything. It might win primaries here and there, but those are a different ball of wax."
"The people are being harmed by politicians of both parties left and right whenever they engage in whatever business they're engaging in, political payback, advancing their own agendas, who's paying the price for this? Citizens are."
"This Christie scandal and the Obama scandals shows how petty the government is on every level, and the danger of the government having so much power."
"What are we gonna call this scandal, the bridge to nowhere scandal? Chris Christie's bridge to nowhere scandal? I don't know why I'm still entertained by it, but I am."
