"Every time the president breaks a law, he's violating, not just the law, but separation of powers. I'm fairly confident in saying we haven't seen this ever. Our system is broken. It is severely broken. When a president can defy the law over and over and over again, without any of the other federal branches acting to stop it, it's unprecedented."
"All right, here we go. I'm turning the Dittocam on. There you have it. There is Michelle Obama and the $12,000 gown by Carolina Herrera, and the French president Hollande is in the middle, and there's Obama. You'll notice that this dress is bigger than the president of France."
"What is so profoundly disturbing here is that the one person who takes a specific oath to defend the Constitution -- to protect the Constitution, to defend the laws of the United States and to enforce the laws -- is the one bastardizing them. The rule of law is disintegrating before our eyes."
"Now, it's been running around, going around here, that this is a banana republic. This is way beyond a banana republic now. This is Stalinism."
"Obamacare is just a series of taxes, really punitive taxes."
"I'm gonna go out on a limb here. I fully expect the 2014 midterms to be a wave election like 2010. I think the people of this country are gonna sweep Democrats out of office every chance they get."
"No responsible person running a business of any size would fail to take all of these Obamacare taxes into account in making the decision how to staff the company -- and if you have an opportunity to avoid these punitive taxes for three more years by having fewer than a hundred employees, you're going to damn well do it."
"A company must limit its costs. Profitability is how you stay in business. It's how you keep people employed. It's how you provide them health care."
"Barack Obama and all of his supporters and the entire administration are now attempting to criminalize standard, ordinary, everyday intelligent business decision-making, where what is really illegal and irrational is not what a company does to limit its costs. That's smart. A company must limit its costs. Profitability is how you stay in business."
"One of the great differences between us and the Europeans is Europeans believe that everything is illegal until a government makes it legal. We don't. One of the great differences between us and the Europeans is Europeans believe that everything is illegal until a government makes it legal. We don't."
"We're so broken. I wonder if winning another election fixes this. It has to help, but this is really dire circumstances because everybody is sitting there saying, "Well, why doesn't somebody do something?" and nobody that I know thinks they can do anything, and you don't see a popular uprising among the people. So it's just day in and day out, with every transgression, ignored."
"The First Amendment's not alive. It can't stand up and say, 'Stop! You're abridging me!'"
