1. “Unfortunately, he still has not learned how to govern. How is it that the president won the argument on gun safety with the public and lost the vote in the Senate? It’s because he doesn’t know how to work the system. And it’s clear now that he doesn’t want to learn, or to even hire some clever people who can tell him how to do it or do it for him.”

2. “Immigration reform will make us safer, and I hope that those that are critical of it will just come forward and say what their idea is.”

3. “[T]he threat is coming from within the Muslim community in these cases, in New York. That’s why Commissioner Kelly has 1,000 police officers out in the community. Unfortunately, he gets smeared by The New York Times and The Associated Press. But the fact is we’ve stopped 16 plots in New York because we know that Al Qaeda is shifting its tactics. It’s not going to be attackers from overseas. We’ve been able to prevent that.”

4. “[T]hat’s the reality of the world we’re now living in. Because we not only face terrorism from abroad, that is, planned and coordinated. We face these lone wolves or these others or whoever gathers together that has a vengeance or a demented mind or who has been kind of radicalized through over the Internet or through a mosque or whatever. We’re going to continue to have to understand that is a threat to America also.”

5. “I think it’s very revealing that from the outside looking in, before we know who did it, we could not distinguish this from high end crime or low end terrorism. That’s a remarkable success that I fear this tragedy — not a catastrophe — but this tragedy is the new normal. We’re going to have to live with this risk.”

The answers are: 1. Here, 2. Here, 3. Here, 4.Here and 5. Here.
