Pearls of Wisdom

"The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold Lois Lerner in contempt. Twenty-one sexists voted to hold her in contempt and 12 reasonable, nice, nonjudgmental Democrats voted 'no.'"

"You know, I'm gonna CNN's coverage of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, if it ever ends. This morning, I kid you not, they have been running a breaking news banner on it. It happened once when Snerdley was in here, and I pointed to the screen, the TV display, monitor, and I said, 'Look at that. 'Breaking news: Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 May Have Lost Altitude. Really? I thought it was still up there at 35,000 feet.'"

"By giving Colbert Letterman's gig, CBS has just declared war on the Heartland of America. No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values. Now it's just wide out in the open."

"I don't mean to be laughing about it, but it's breaking new that the airplane may have lost altitude? What would be CNN's first clue, and why did it take 'em a month to learn this? 'Come on, Rush, you know what they're talking about.' They've got some news that the plane dumped down to 4,000 feet. Yeah, and at some point it was at 3,000 feet, and then it was 2,000 feet, and now it's probably 10,000 feet under the ocean based on the latest ping."

"Barack Obama, as the first black president of this country, had an opportunity to heal this country like no other president before him ever had. Barack Obama could have, in these past five years, done more to promote racial harmony than any other president, and he has done just the exact opposite."

"Obama's at the LBJ Library and he said, 'As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, we honor the men and women who made it possible,' which is a big switch because normally he attacks Republicans. The Democrats were the segregationists, and a greater percentage of Republican senators voted for the Civil Rights Act than Democrats."

"Hillary Clinton's primary achievement is that she was a doormat, and it is for that she is being rewarded."

"The low-information voters know what McCarthyism is and they know who Alger Hiss is. Whenever a Democrat is under the microscope, it's always McCarthyism."

"The IRS has been asking American citizens who are trying to get a tax exemption, "Are you now or have you ever been a supporter of the Tea Party?" and that's not McCarthyism. No. The congressman investigating that abuse, they are accused of McCarthyism. So McCarthyism has become the quest for truth of Democrat corruption. That's the new definition of McCarthyism."

"I can't tell you how shocked I was at the Republican inside-the-Beltway judicial intellectual approval of Holder as the choice. That was one of the early signs that I knew we were in for a long winter. That was one of the first indications I had there wasn't gonna be any principled opposition to Obama anywhere at any time."

"You can't buy insurance until January. Now, that is inane. Who would build that into this law? Unless you wanted to create pain. Unless you wanted to create angst. Unless you wanted to show people the dangers of not having insurance so you never let that happen again."

"We're supposed to fear the powerful in this Regime. That's how we're kept in line. We're supposed to be afraid to speak up."

"The media, the Democrat Party, virtually every word uttered about Obama -- if it's not in high praise -- is labeled racism. It's labeled bigotry. If the leaders of the nation are gonna reduce themselves to that kind of childishness, what kind of example does it set?"

"I'm convinced that a sizable percentage of the people that voted for Obama in 2008 thought they were voting to end racism, or at least they hoped they were. They thought by voting for a black man, the first African-American president, they would sweep away all the detritus and the vestiges of slavery from all of those years and we could finally put it behind us and unite. I'm convinced that's what millions of people that voted for Obama thought they were helping happen -- and instead, racial strife in this country has gotten worse."
