Ron Paul presided over a raucous rally, on the heels of his defeat in the Florida GOP primary. A poor showing didn’t stop him from making a forceful, impassioned speech, however. Some quick hits:
"Don’t you think it’s about time we had a new monetary policy? [crowd reacts]…end the fed, right, end it!"
"The purpose of government should be the protection of individual liberty for each and every one of us."
"We need to repeal the Patriot Act, we need to repeal the provision that the President can assassinate an American citizen without trial."
"We have a right to our liberty, we should have the right to keep the fruits of our labor as well!"

This country is bankrupt; all great nations go down because they extend themselves overseas. …let’s defend this country, and stop pretending we can tell other people how to live!

Ron Paul, on stage at his post-Florida rally: "If enthusiasm wins elections, we win hands down!" Unfortunately for Paul, enthusiasm does not win elections in and of itself; Paul is projected to finish fourth in the Florida primary. However, he says he had a friendly conversation with Mitt Romney, with a parting message: "See you in the caucus states!"

This is going to be a working Presidency. I may not get as much golf in as Obama, but I’ll get a lot more job creation. And I’m not going to compete with Obama at singing… Mr. President, you cannot sing your way past the disaster of your Presidency! You know, I forgot my teleprompter. I’m having to wing this because of staff failure.
Newt Gingrich, firing off back-to-back-to-back jibes aimed at President Obama.

The Mitt Romney victory speech tonight makes it clear; he considers this a clinching affair. He’s made no mention to this point of his GOP rivals, beyond some mild congratulations at the top of his speech. Rather, his remarks were almost entirely dedicated to attacking President Obama on a wide range of issues. Some quick hits:
"I will not just slow the growth of government, I will cut the spending of government… and without raising taxes, I will finally get America to a balanced budget."
"Leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses."
"President Obama has adopted a policy of appeasement and apology. I will stand up for those seeking freedom, and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our friends around the world."
"Like his colleagues in the faculty lounge, President Obama demonizes almost every innovator."
"If this is a contest over who can promise the most goodies, I am not your President. You have that President now."
