On how out-of-touch Democrats are with the concerns of the voters…
The Democrat National Committee strategery, this week, is to attack Romney because he might cut government jobs – and they think this is a good tactic for their side? Even after the vote in Wisconsin? The Democrats think that it is a winning argument to say we need to expand government and hire more government workers? They are so on the wrong side of history it’s not even funny how they’re missing this! [The] Scott Walker recall was supported [sic] by people all over this country, including in Wisconsin obviously and it was, the message was clear and the Democrats are out warning: “That’s what Romney wants to do nation-wide” and they think that they are helping themselves?
On Governor Scott Walker’s recall-election triumph in Wisconsin…
Now, putting partisan politics aside – which is impossible to do but, just for the moment, if you want to do it – shouldn’t all of us be celebrating this victory? Because in reality – strip away all the partisanship, strip away all of the reasons that there’s acrimony – doesn’t this victory last night, by Scott Walker – doesn’t it mean that states all over the country now have another choice when it comes to dealing with fiscal emergencies? They don’t have to raise taxes. States do not have to lay off people. They don’t have to go bankrupt. The federal tax payer does not have to bail out these states. There’s now another choice. The states can trim a little fat from their public sector union contracts, which is always their biggest expense. Isn’t that good news? There is a way here, that’s been lighted. This ought to be, in the real world, where we’re in fiscal troubles, serious fiscal trouble – here is a state, which has shown a way out of it.
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 Wisconsin voters turning back Democrat attempts to recall newly-elected Republican senators…
By turning back the Democrats’ attempt to recall – and I tell you, those were heroic Republican state senators that voted against all the union activity in Wisconsin, you know ending the collective bargaining and making them pay a little bit toward their own retirement and so forth, that was big stuff when that happened, it was gutsy, it was courageous, not only the Republican Governor but these Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature. And by turning back the Democrat attempt to recall – there were six Republican senators that they were trying for recall, four of ‘em were victorious, four Republicans won, so that they maintained control of the Senate in Wisconsin. It means that the people of Wisconsin have fended off what amounted to a government union takeover. The unions were trying via the recall election to take over the state of Wisconsin. The people of Wisconsin rejected it. The Democrats and the unions and their allies in the media, which is to say the media, tried everything. They pulled out all the stops, what was it, thirty five? Thirty five million dollars, they had all their goons running around, and they still lost. All of which should be very inspiring for the rest of us. If the taxpayers of Wisconsin can win against all those odds… you know Wisconsin is only recently a red state. And that’s why this was important.
On David Prosser's substantial margin of victory in Wisconsin.
The left put three and a half million dollars into this Supreme Court race. Prosser versus Kloppenberg. If they can't win in Wisconsin – if they can't win in Wisconsin with all that union money and all that union power and all that propaganda, and the bussed-in union goons – they bussed people in from across the country – in ultra-liberal Wisconsin – then we really should have hope here folks.
On the Obama Administration’s decision to stop handing out Obamacare waivers.
The reason they’re not going to grant any more waivers is because they don’t want the Republicans to be able to have the issue going in to the election. Well that’s all fine and dandy, the Republicans have the issue. The people, the companies, all these Union buddies of Obama, these people who’ve gotten these waivers – unions, Pelosi’s friends, Harry Reid’s entire state, they’ve already gotten their waiver. And that issue isn’t gonna go away... It’s still a big issue for the Republicans. The question is, will the Republicans nominate anybody with the guts to use it?
