On the late Steve Jobs…

He was as profit-oriented as any capitalist you have ever met… One of the stories that the left is very uncomfortable with about Jobs is when he took Apple back over in 1997 – he went back after being exiled, he went back in 1997 – and after a few months became interim CEO, then full-time. And the first thing he did was cancel every philanthropic program that Apple had. Because they were in a loss situation… And after Apple started turning profitable he did not re-implement… the philanthropic programs that Apple had in place… Jobs would in no way give any indication to anybody anytime anywhere what his political leanings were – they were anything but liberal… when it came to running that business of his he was as capitalist as any capitalist this world has ever produced has been… all of Apple’s products, 99% of them, are made in China. They’re made in China because if they weren’t they’d be prohibitively expensive made in the United States. The fact that he would tell Obama that unions are destroying the schools is perfectly true! It’s perfectly true.

On the wretched economic condition of the United States under President Obama…

This is the United States of America, and we now know we’ve got somebody running this company, who believes that its greatness is illegitimate, and we’ve got to pay the price for it. In truth we have an effective unemployment rate in this country of 20%. Black unemployment 16.9%. The 9.1% number is government disinformation. And to the people who’ve been out of work for a year or longer, this is not a recession, this is a depression. I don’t care how the government defines it. That’s what this is. When one out of every five adults is struggling to survive in the greatest nation on the face of the earth, this is a disgrace. When we can’t produce a single job in the month of August, a GDP of 1%, the Chi-coms are growing at 9.5% – the Cubans are outgrowing us – this is unacceptable. This is the greatest nation on the face of the earth, this is a disgrace, and it is a disgrace because none of this is necessary. None of it.

On the bankruptcy and closure of green-energy company Solyndra after it was touted by President Obama as the wave of the future of American manufacturing…

He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He hasn’t the slightest clue about solar energy or wind energy or green energy. This global competition business? They had to shut down – global economic conditions forced the company to shut down – that probably means that the Chi-coms are selling solar panels for less than they can sell ‘em in San Francisco. That’s what that means.
