RUSH: She's gotta give her husband credit. In her mind and his, with the way they are transforming America, I think they think it is on the way to greatness. Maybe what they think is that the changes they are instituting, the changes being implemented are great to bring about the transformation this country deserves, because it's been much too powerful and much too rich for way too long.
RUSH: I now watch with a different perspective. I watch with a lot of sadness. I watch this lunacy that we saw last night, and if you didn't watch it, don't worry, you'll get enough of a flavor for it after I finish the program today, you'll know. It was sheer lunacy. A lot of it was delusional and deranged. A lot of it was unhinged. The reason that I watch it with sadness is the realization now that close to 50% of the people in this country who vote eat it up.
RUSH: You know how I'm gonna get into this email stuff? I'm gonna go back, we got some See, I Told You So's, things that I have told you in recent months, in the past year and a half. Things I predicted. I knew these things were gonna happen. I knew the game was rigged against Crazy Bernie. I knew all this 'cause I know these people. I know the left. I know the Democrats. I know liberals. I know how they operate, and so you'll hear in the See, I Told You So's from weeks, months, and a little over a year-and-a-half ago how I foretold all of this that is in this WikiLeak email document.
RUSH: Trump got a convention bounce and it's a big one, a six-point convention bounce... Believe me. Don't doubt me on this. Despite the smiling and attempts at everything's okay and all is normal that you're seeing from Democrats this week, they're worried. They are panicked. Because Trump was supposed to be nowhere near Hillary. Trump was not supposed to be close, much less leading.
RUSH: You know, I've made this point constantly. Here's a Democrat carrying a sign, a bunch of Bernie supporters: "America Was NEVER Great. We Need to OVERTHROW This System." That says it all: "America was never great." That's exactly who these leftists are. It's exactly who many in the Democrat Party are: "America was never great. There is no American exceptionalism. We don't like this country from the days of the founding in any way." That's who they are, folks.
RUSH: When he runs for office in Virginia, her vice presidential nominee? Why, you would not believe how conservative this guy sounds! Proving another of my many often-made points, that Democrats -- in order to win elections, national elections -- have to make people think that they are not who they are. They cannot run as progressives, liberal extremists.
RUSH: The left has frightened young people to death. One of the most successful campaigns to scare young people and to keep 'em in line has been this whole global warming thing. It is uncanny how many young people -- and they've been watching Captain Planet since they were 5 years old, kindergarten, grade school, junior high, middle school, high school. They have been taught that humanity is destroying the planet, their parents and their grandparents. And they believed it. And they believe there's not gonna be a habitable planet by the time they are 60, 65 years old, maybe even before. They really believe this. And, if you take time to understand how they have just been smothered with this stuff, you would understand why the Democrats have made it possible. And this is how using fear, using darkness, using a never-ending crisis rooted in chaos, they keep these people loyal to Big Government command-and-control Democrat-run institutions, all to save the planet.
RUSH: In one week, we'll be celebrating our 28th anniversary here -- and I'll tell you why we make a big deal of it, folks. It's something that I'm very proud of, because it's unheard of. The number of people, the number of radio shows in this business that have been around, well, anywhere close to this length? It's very rare.
RUSH: Do you think Hillary Clinton might be saying to herself about now, "Why did I waste my money and time picking Tim Kaine?" I mean, the choice of Tim Kaine to be veep was to take the party in a direction opposite Crazy Bernie supporters, right?
RUSH: The answer Hillary gave to this email stuff and WikiLeaks, that she didn't know anything about it, they edited that out of what was broadcast. Scott Pelley said there's no sense in airing that she didn't know. The only way to see her saying that is to go to the CBS website and watch all the footage.
