Now, is this the first of one of those many days? No. I just don’t care. There’s nothing in this Stack that I said, “I can’t wait to talk about that.” There’s nothing in here that deserves to be at the top of the Stack, and, by the same token, there’s nothing in here that deserves to be at the bottom. It doesn’t matter. (interruption) No, I’m not depressed. No, no, nothing happened. Look, I know every one of you, some days you just don’t care. Nothing floats your boat. Not depressed. You’re just flatline. You don’t care. I’m talking about mood flatline. I’m not talking about heart rate. Come on, folks, you gotta cut me some slack.

And I’ll tell you this. Whoever wins it, there’s no doubt in my mind it’s gonna be pedal to the metal support time. ‘Cause I don’t think this election’s about our guys. They’re trying to make it about our guys. This election is about Obama. As far as I’m concerned it’s always gonna be about Obama. It’s not gonna be about anything else. You have to deal with the cards that you’re dealt, and we don’t have Ronald Reagan and a list of nominees. We just don’t have it. It’s not there. You can pretend and get upset, we just don’t have Reagan out there. There hasn’t been a Reagan since Reagan, other than me, and I’m not running. Palin’s not running. Marco Rubio’s not running. They’re not running.
