On how freedom is lost…

You don’t need prisons to lose your freedom. Look at political correctness. People stifle themselves. People will refuse to exercise their own first-amendment rights out of fear for what might be heard. Somebody might be offended. Somebody might be upset. So people willingly, willfully, give up freedom every day of the week. Political correctness has resulted in self-policing of your thoughts.

On a New York Times article which outlines the Obama Administration’s new reelection campaign strategy…

The Democrat party… is going after the entitlement class, the welfare-dependent class, and the elite, in academia, art, human resource management, lawyers, library and social workers and so forth – what a coalition! The backbone of America! And that’s who they’re going after. They are ceding it! … The New York Times is admitting that the Democrat party, the Obama coalition is saying, “If you work, we don’t want you… If you work, we know you don’t want us. If you work, you’re the targets. If you work, you are the people we are gunning for. If you work, we are coming after you to make sure the other elements of our constituency are able to eat.” That’s what the Obama coalition is saying.

[Rebroadcast material]… On why President Obama would ask the Supreme Court for an expedited ruling on Obamacare…

We’ve mentioned a couple possibilities as to why the regime has asked for a quick review and decision from the Supreme Court on Obamacare. And I want to throw out another possibility. Given where Obama is in the polls – and folks, it is much worse than the state-controlled media polls indicate – I think it’s disastrous. Simple logic would tell us, it’s disastrous. We are on the verge of a depression. The idea that the incumbent President has a chance to be reelected is absurd, in those circumstances. Yet the media narrative each day is of course just the opposite because Obama’s their guy… So they ask for a quick review of Obamacare. One of two ways to look at it. They’re either very confident they’re going to win this thing, or – or – given who Obama is, a community organizer who loves agitating people, and who is probably very connected, if not personally, his regime, to these Wall Street protests, and he’s … egging them on, and so is Biden. They’re egging these people on. So there’s a part of me that says Obama would love the court declaring Obamacare unconstitutional. I think Obama loves playing a victim. I think he would love to take that to the bank and say, “See what they’re doing to your free healthcare?”

On U.S. energy policy…

What we’re doing now – our energy policy now – is frankly absurd. Killing off our own energy sector. Shutting down our own production. Shutting down our own discovery. Shutting down our own drilling. For a host of reasons, chief among them a hoax. Global warming, and pollution. Making ourselves vulnerable to world supplies, political circumstances, price variations, all of these things. We’re not acting like a super-power. We’re acting like a needy, defensive, no-confidence little child. Because we don’t have the right strategies. We don’t think enough of ourselves as a country, at the highest levels.

On Michelle Obama being booed by a NASCAR crowd at the Homestead Miami Speedway…

Why would people boo the First Lady? Media can’t believe it. But I can. People don’t like being told they’re lousy parents. And Mrs. Obama has done that. People resent Mrs. Obama’s bizarre need to tell us what to eat and how much to exercise… Mrs. Obama has a husband that runs around and apologizes for this country that he was elected to lead… I’m also pretty sure that this crowd is not eager to go out and buy a car that you have to plug in, in order to drive. This is a fast car kind of crowd, this is NOT a Prius/Volt/Leaf plug-it-in-and-charge-it-for-40-miles kind of crowd. Also, I might point out, that people who go to NASCAR races are the very people her husband called “bitter clingers”: when things aren’t going well, what do they do? Why, they cling to their guns, and they cling to their religion.

On the Republican presidential nomination process…

Despite what anybody tells you, we do not know who the nominee will be. But we do know what he or she should be saying… in order to secure the nomination. And that is, Barack Obama is the problem, not fellow Republicans. The problem is Barack Obama. The problem is the Democrat party. The problem is the American left. America’s greatness is not behind us. America’s greatness is there, it’s on the horizon. Our nominee must say “We will be great again,” and the first step in the process is getting rid of Barack Obama and the Democrat party. And moving them out of the way. Whichever of these people seeking the nomination makes that case – the most consistently and the most believably, and the most sincerely; not as a phony sales-type presentation, but genuinely means it – that’s who’s gonna get this nomination, in the end. And it is still up for grabs.

On the winding down of the Occupy Wall Street movement…

Now that these kids from Occupy-Whatever have gotten used to urinating and defecating in the streets, when they go back home are their parents gonna have to house-break ‘em all over again? Teach ‘em how to use the potties, the bathrooms. If you are a parent of a “returning hero” from Occupy Wall Street you might want to put some newspaper down at strategic points inside the house. Particularly the bedrooms where your brave hero sons and daughters are returning home, after this valiant, valiant effort to overturn whatever it was they wanted overturned. But I am, folks at the end of the day here I’m still a little sorry to see them all go… Every photo from the Occupy protests looks like a campaign ad for conservatism… And this is why they had to be cleared out of there. This is why they had to go. I am convinced the mayors got phone calls from Washington, from Axelrod, from somebody, “Look, let’s shut this down because it’s not working any more.” The media gave it it’s best shot. The media tried to tell everybody “This is just like the Tea Party.” But it wasn’t working because the murders, the gunfire, the sexually-transmitted disease, the filth. The abject filth. Third-world type little city-states. In all these cities. Was a direct television ad for conservatism. These people. At Occupy whatever. They are the perfect representatives of the Democrat party.

On the Supreme Court’s announcement that it will take up Obamacare for deliberation in March of 2012…

The regime is out there saying they want an early decision. The regime is suggesting they would like a decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare next June. That’s gonna have a possibility, the potential of making health care the issue during the campaign. And I don’t know how that works out for the regime, folks. If you look at what just happened in Ohio, where Issue 3, 66% of the American people want no part of the mandate requiring them to buy insurance, the news about health care every day, it gets worse, in terms of people losing their insurance, costs going up. But the regime claims that they want this decision before the election. And they’re out there predicting victory.

On an announcement by the Department of Education that schools should start teaching personal finance classes to children in kindergarten…

Why would kindergarten students need to know anything about personal finance? By the time they grow up they’re not going to have any money of their own, it’s gonna all be the government’s. They are not going to have to worry about buying food; it’ll all be provided by the government. They won’t be buying homes or maybe even paying rent – they’ll be living in government-subsidized housing. They won’t have to buy a car, they’ll be given an electric car or told to ride mass transit.

On the steady drip-drip-drip of sexual abuse allegations against Herman Cain in the media…

They’re not going to stop. They are going to not stop this until they see erosion, sufficient, in his numbers, for them to say they’ve succeeded. Just like they didn’t stop with Sarah Palin. They didn’t stop. They didn’t stop until she said she’s not running. And now, do you ever hear about her? You hear about her any more? Not at all. And it’ll be the same thing with Cain… And I guarantee you, Newt is gonna be the next one targeted. If he keeps this slow creep back up, he’s going to be the next one targeted. This is how the left works. And then the same losers on our side will start piling on, saying “Newt’s got some explaining to do there.” It’s the most amazing thing to me. Political enemies go out and level charges against people on our side, some people on our side [say] “Yeah, yeah, you may have something there.”

On media accusations against Herman Cain that he made women feel “uncomfortable” in hotel rooms 15 years ago…

Folks, I get uncomfortable when Room Service shows up, when I’m in a hotel. What is this? That’s not a fact of anything, it is an accusation. And more than that, it’s a touchy-feely accusation. How many people are made to feel “uncomfortable” every day by other people? What kind of wusses run the world now? What kind of pantywaists run the world? Who is it – “Yes, I was made to feel very uncomfortable, I think it’s worth $50,000, Mister Limbaugh.” Every day, we all are made to feel uncomfortable by something. I would be afraid to complain, how many times I’m uncomfortable. For crying out loud, that’s the whole point, a nation of whiners! And complainers. Who want to be paid for it. For being offended or being made to feel uncomfortable but so what? By what? … The problem here is that it is not a fact. Not yet. That’s an accusation.

On the case of a Dutch scientist – who published a study claiming that meat eaters were more selfish than others – who admitted his studies were fraudulent…

Let me make an observation here folks. I know meat eaters. I am a meat eater. I have never met anybody who feels superior to anybody or anything because they eat meat. But! I have run into all kinds of holier-than-thou vegetarians and vegans and other wackos who do think they are superior, and better, and smarter, than everybody else. I know gazillions of beaf eaters and I don’t know a one of them who has forced his eating choices on anybody else. But I know a bunch of rag-tag stupid vegan vegetarians, holier-than-thou superiorists who try to force everybody to eat what they eat and to not eat what they don’t approve of.

On privatizing social security…

A question: if Barack Obama can use taxpayer money to invest in risky private sector investments – like all of these fraudulent, phony, there-is-no-business-there green energy loans – if Obama can do that – if he can use taxpayer money to invest in risky private sector investments that go belly-up – shouldn’t we be able to put our retirement money in a safer place than Washington? I personally, I don’t mind risking my money on investments I trust. What I don’t like is other people risking my money on investments only a fool would trust. Privatizing a portion of social security is an argument that’s always out there. And anytime somebody brings it up seriously within the realm of politics they get shot down as “third rail, can’t do that,” and of course look at how it’s demagogued. How is it demagogued? The argument for not privatizing even a portion of social security is that “people might risk their retirement savings on risky investments.” Yes, these stupid idiot people might go out there and invest their money in bad places. They might put their money in the stock market, “Oh no! And they might lose everything!” And they cite the most recent market crash they can think of. Well, excuse me, but isn’t Obama risking everybody’s retirement savings when he gives our money to green energy boondoggles?
