On Mitt Romney's "humorous" story about his father moving a factory from Michigan to Wisconsin:

@1:27 West: You have to be so very introspective of everything that you say or at least when you say it understand the ramifications there of and be prepared for the attacks that are going to come. But I also remember, I believe it was Raleigh North Carolina, when the president was with his jobs council and he started laughing about shovel ready probably wasn't exactly shovel ready. So, you know, he is without sin let him cast the first stone.

On Rep. Bobby Rush's Hoodie Incident:

@4:09 West: Right now the security folks there on the House floor are laughing about it but initially they did not know who it was and they were concerned that someone had just walked off of the or broke away from a tour group. But look, this is the type of immature gimmickry that we see coming from the other side that does not have any place especially on the House floor or really in the United States.

On the shooting death of Trayvon Martin:

@5:11 West: The bottom line is that there was a tragedy, a young American man lost his life, we need to allow the investigation to continue on, but you know right now he was unarmed and someone has to be held accountable for that. And my statement initially was that the individual should not be walking...

Ingraham: What if it was self-defense?

West: Well, you see Laura even if you are a police officer Laura and you shoot someone who is unarmed you are put on desk duty, your weapon is taken away.

Ingraham: Yes. There should be an investigation.

West: Absolutely. That, so that is my whole point, that he should not be still out there walking free with a concealed weapons license.
