“[Excerpts] I remember three and a half years ago, when Mr. Obama won the election. . . . Everybody was crying, Oprah was crying. I was even crying. … I haven't cried that hard since I found out that there is 23 million unemployed people in this country. Now that is something to cry for because that is a disgrace, a national disgrace, and we haven't done enough, obviously – this administration hasn't done enough to cure that. Whenever interest they have is not strong enough, and I think possibly now it may be time for somebody else to come along and solve the problem. …

I never thought it was a good idea for attorneys to the president…. But, I think it is maybe time -- what do you think -- for maybe a businessman. How about that? A stellar businessman. … “a stellar businessman.” And I think it's that time….

I would just like to say something…. Something that I think is very important. It is that, you, we -- we own this country. We, we own it. …not politicians… Politicians are employees of ours... And when somebody does not do the job, we got to let them go. [Audience chants: “Let him go. Let him go.”]…

We don't have to be…. we do not have to be mental masochists and vote for somebody that we don't really even want in office just because they seem to be nice guys . . .”

“Obama and Romney both have JD's from Harvard and the last three Presidents who had business experience were Hoover who was in charge when the Great Depression occurred, Carter who oversaw the largest inflation in the past 50 years and Bush 43 who led us into the 2nd worse depression.

There is absolutely no evidence that a successful businessman will be a successful President. In fact, history shows us quite the opposite is the case.”

“Who OBSTRUCTED President Obama? People forget that Republicans obstructed the President on over 400 pieces of legislation to get this country going! It's the GOP
I hold responsible for this predicament we're in because of their Desire to make Obama a "one term president". President Obama didn't fail, in my opinion, he did fairly well considering he had a group of people that held this country hostage to get their tax cut, refused benefits to 9/11 rescue workers until the GOP got their tax cut, etc. no Obama did NOT FAIL, THE GOP HATE OBAMA SO MUCH THEY FORGET TO LOVE AMERICA, ALL OF AMERICA. They, in my opinion, failed America.”

“That was good. But, IMO, the best George Washington portrayal was David Morse in the HBO mini-series, John Adams. Best face, best voice, best manner, best vibe.”
