“The truth does not require a majority to prevail. The truth is its own power. The truth willout. Never forget that.”

“So we have Pelosi flailing around on torture, Obama doing a 180 on the interrogation photos, and now Obama doing a 180 on detainees. Can I translate all this for you? It’s very simple: Dick Cheney gets results.”

“Nancy Pelosi gets a lot of exercise when she blinks. Do you realize the muscle exertion required for Nancy Pelosi to blink? I mean, if she works out daily she can skip it today because she had her exercise during the press conference.”

“Basically there are two groups of people: you have the producers and achievers, and then you have the people that feed off of them. Well, I’m sorry. You can sit in there and laugh all you want, Snerdley.”

“The news coming out of Washington is disgusting: news that we are going to control the salaries of banks executives, CEOs, and employees who had no TARP money taken… You know, Hugo Chavez doesn’t have the cojones to try what Obama is trying without legislation.”

“You could have said prior to the immaculation of Obama that we were a country drifting to the left, but we’re not anymore. The country is now on a high-speed freight train left, and the media is carrying the coal for the engine of the high-speed freight train.”

“The Obamas are eating hundred-dollar Kobe beef in the White House, throwing parties for people, and they spent $2,000 on a dog. Now, I don’t begrudge them any of this, but when he’s going to start saying, ‘It’s okay for me to do this, but it’s not for you’ — that’s when I get my dander up.”

“I’ll bet you Obama is working on which Chrysler dealerships survive based on campaign donations. This is how Democrats do this.”

“Let me sum this Obama sound bite up: ‘Don’t live for yourself. Don’t pursue your own self-interest. Live for others.’ But, see, what Obama doesn’t understand is that individuals working in their own self-interest are doing exactly what he prescribes. Working in your own self-interest is working for others.”

“Get rid of the music! I’m not in the mood for Prince!”

“People will say, ‘Why didn’t somebody warn us what was happening to our economy and our country?’ Well, I’m the guy. You’re being warned.”

“Very predictably, the media, the American left is trying to score some political points as a result of this tragedy at the Holocaust museum in Washington, and as predictable, they are trying to blame this on me, other conservatives and right-wingers.”

“This nut job, this guy that pulled the trigger yesterday, has more in common with the marchers and protesters we see at left-wing rallies.”

“Is Oprah’s pay going to be supervised? She’s an executive, and some might say that Oprah Winfrey making $227 million a year is a little bit excessive.”

“After all of the years of hatred and vitriol — assassination movies and books about George W. Bush — for liberals to now claim that the atmosphere is now somehow more violently anti-Obama is simply preposterous.”

“If you want to expose yourself to hate, around the clock — if you want to expose yourself to vitriol and hatred around the clock — I can tell you where to do it. It’s called M-S-N-B-C. That cable network is hate 24/7, and they have been for eight years.”

“The State-Run Media is intent on keeping the Republican Party a minority party and a minority movement forever by continually disrespecting it. It’s so obvious that it’s what’s happening.”

“The problem with these people who don’t know what to do is there’s no elected Republican leadership right now that is giving them an opportunity to support and vent and have a release for some of the rage.”

“To be frank, President Obama needs you to be contemptuous of others so that he can appeal to you emotionally.”


“David Letterman’s an angry old man now, every night, angry, filled with rage about somebody and genuinely wrong about everything he says.”

“Joe Wilson simply articulated what millions of Americans were saying. I was shouting, ‘You’re lying!’ throughout the speech at the television.”

“President Barack Obama gave a grossly inappropriate and, to me, embarrassing speech, a campaign speech disguised as a big speech to a joint session of Congress.”

“That speech last night was a fraud. It was dishonest. It demeaned the office of the presidency.”

“We are in the midst of an administration that is trying to totally tear down the institutions and traditions that have made this country great.”

“Barack Obama, the architect of waste, fraud, deficit spending, lying, everything you can think of, says that he is going to use the waste and fraud and abuse in government to pay for more government!”

“Folks, if we’re serious about the things that we’re charging, if we’re serious about the things that we’re accusing this administration of, then we cannot trash and destroy and discard one of our own.”

“Finally somebody in the Republican Party spoke up. May not have been the best place, but, frankly, I don’t have a problem at all with what he did because of the serious nature of what we face.”

“Why is it okay for Obama, as president of the United States, in a legislative setting to come out here and lie through his teeth and somehow it’s bad form for Congressman Joe Wilson to tell the truth in the same setting? They were harping today on the truth-teller. It ought to be the other way around.”

“If Obama gets his way we’re going to legalize 12 to 20 million illegals, and they’re going to become citizens and they’re going to get coverage.”


“The crisis that should be addressed by this president last night is the one of his making: nearly three million unemployed. He had the audacity to open up last night and tell people we’re coming back from the brink.”

“Now, folks, you know that we are in deep doo-doo when Barbra Streisand starts making more sense than anyone in the Republican Party.”

“I have a spy there for the Obama speech in Kansas City. As an illustration of how bad things are, a blind prostitute was working the streets. You really have to hand it to her.”

“I don’t care what magazine or what gossip column in the newspaper you read, it’s all about Lindsay Lohan.”

“If it were the Klan standing outside a black polling place instead of the New Black Panthers, people wouldn’t be asking me why in the world I have a problem with it.”


“If you ever wondered why the rich — the really, truly rich — don’t care about tax rate increases on the upper brackets it’s because many of them have so much wealth, they don’t have income anymore. It’s not earned income as in salary and wages.”
“We had an amazing recovery after 9/11 thanks to the Bush tax cuts.”

“More and more people are starting to realize we have a president and a regime who are interested in payback, who have a real tough time and a real problem with the structure of this country — and with the behavior of this nation’s people for over 220 years.”

“What we have is a new sunset. We’re at dusk. Shining city on a hill? There aren’t any lights burning, or not too many anymore.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if the Clintons are sending signals that Obama is a disaster for the Democrat Party.”

“The nightly newscasts are already dead and buried. They’re in the ground, they just don’t know it. Somebody slipped them a breathing tube and a canteen of water and they’re able to survive down there, but it’s over.”

“All these people who have been clamoring for a colorblind society do not, in any way, want one. They live off of race. They thrive on it.”

“Go talk to Obama if you want to, Shirley. Go and have a discussion about racism. Go tell him all you want about it. Go get your job back. In the meantime, the rest of us are going to go about trying to save this country for the rest of our children and grandchildren because that’s what matters to us — not your skin color.”

“I’m really starting to get steamed in here. Play this damn sound bite again. Folks, what the hell did you people that voted for this guy… What have you done? When are you people that voted for this doofus going to apologize?”

“The latest trend in apologies is to say, ‘That’s not who I really am.’ Bull! It is who you are! You are a commie! You are a full-fledged Marxist liberal!”

“I’m Tim Geithner and I’m smarter than you. I got an egghead-shaped head, and that means there’s a bigger brain in there. I got more brain cells and I’m smarter than you are, and there’s these people want lower taxes and lower regulation, but screw them!”

“Obama sat in Reverend Wright’s church for 20 years. I don’t care where he’s lived, Ms. Sherrod — he has a greater anger about this country’s past than you do. It’s been instilled in him.”

“Bull Connor, who turned the dogs and the water hoses on blacks in Selma, was a Democrat. Lester Maddox, Democrat. George Wallace, Democrat. J. William Fulbright and Robert Byrd opposed the Civil Rights Act and filibustered it. Who were they? White Democrats.”

“Why is she apologizing? She meant to say it, she wrote it, she should stand by it. You want to watch me die, Sarah Spitz. Say it. Where are your guts? You know damn well you meant it!”

“You know, there’s a word in the American lexicon that by itself is destroying us, and that word is ‘benefits’. Virtually everything in life is now portrayed as a benefit from the government, as though it’s something that people ought to aim for. Well, I hate the word ‘benefits’!”

“The guy’s a joke. He’s an ever-loving joke. The problem is he’s the president of the United States, and he’s destroying us.”

“Judge Vinson gave us all Obamacare waivers. He ruled the whole damn thing unconstitutional!”

“This is not a democratic movement whatsoever in Wisconsin. In fact, they are trying to stop democracy. They’re doing everything they can to disrupt legally elected representatives from doing the work of the people, and Obama and his organizations are encouraging this.”

“So all the Senate Democrats in Wisconsin got on a bus and left the state to avoid the vote today. They probably went to bankrupt Illinois. Good. Absolutely fine. Way to go, Democrats. Keep it up. This is the exact kind of stuff we need people to see you do out in the open.”

“Folks, I don’t think the people in Wisconsin — the unions, the teachers, and some of the protesters — got the memo on civility. Have you seen what’s going on? I mean, this is Greece.”

“I don’t know what to tell people, anymore. There isn’t any money for these unions. In your own home when there isn’t any money, what do you do? Do you go on strike against your own family?”

“‘Workers’ is a Marxist term I also object to when being applied to people who go to work in this country. We have entrepreneurs. We have employees. We have associates. ‘Workers’ exist in China, in the old Soviet Union, in North Korea, and in Cuba.”

“‘What do you mean freeloadersget a free ride, Rush?’ Look, when somebody else is paying for most of what you get in life, you’re a freeloader — there’s no other way to describe it. It might sound a little harsh, but that’s why passions here are what they are.”

“Schools do not exist for unions to have jobs just like corporations do not exist for members of a community to have health care benefits. That’s not the purpose, folks.”

“You know damn well that old Barry is monitoring ‘tensions’ in Madison, but he’s not solving problems. Obama’s busy worrying about 2012 because all that matters to him is that his most dependable voters — public sector union members — get serviced. He feels their pain because their pain is his pain.”

“The president of the United States talks about ‘winning the future’ with trains and windmills. Now, if this were 1835 that would be a sure winner, but it’s 2011.”
