So if you guys don't nominate Daniels, it's over for you, and, by the way, if you do, it's over.  Why do you think the Democrats want us to nominate him?  Do they really want to nominate a challenger here? (laughing) They really want us to nominate somebody they really think could beat Obama?  Is that what they want us to do?  And there's this phrase again:  serious.  That's the new gravitas.  That's the new, "He's an intellectual.  He's a serious person."  It also means boring and moderate, and it does not mean conservative.  Now I figured it out.  Somebody who's conservative cannot simultaneously be serious, according to the new guidelines in Washington.

This was an excellent monologue.

You know, it's bad enough, ladies and gentlemen, bad enough that the Democrats always cut-and-run from America's foreign enemies, but if the Republicans are going to now start cutting-and-running from our domestic enemies, and that's the Democrats, then we've got a big problem.  This is not the time to cut-and-run.  We are in the process of ascending.  The trend leads to our victory, and they are about to undercut it, following their own anti-conservatism instincts in the Republican Party if they're not careful.

IMO, the GOP should obstruct the hell out of everything they can.  They should NOT save his political a$$.  In 2012 we win a super majority and save the country. 

If the Republic lasts that long.....

If it's up to Obama it won't.
