RUSH: I know how to boil it down to a precious few words. You may not even know exactly what it is that's bothering you. I mean, you may have a specific complaint here or there, but I have the umbrella under which all these things are falling. I'll tell you exactly what it is. There's no reality. And this is why people are freaking out.
RUSH: I really need to understand this. It's part of my never-ending quest to understand progressivism. I'm gonna ask any and all of you with children, progressives. I want to know what Hillary Clinton has done for your child... Whose children has she helped? Whose children will she help, and what does she do? What has she done? What is she doing?
RUSH: Here's what Hillary Clinton tried to do last night. She tried to embrace America's birth, but she couldn't do it. She then aborted America's birth, explaining how she would butcher and sell off the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Tenth Amendment.
RUSH: Here you have a bunch of left-wing Drive-By Media people acknowledging that you don't get patriotism at a Democrat convention, usually. You don't even get pro-America at a Democrat convention, usually... The bottom line is they know that you don't get patriotism, you don't get God, you don't get the American founding, you don't get American tradition at a Democrat convention. Okay, fine. But when you do get those things at a Republican convention, what happens? The media rips them to shreds, do they not?
RUSH: Folks, would somebody explain a few things to me? I really need some help in understanding things today. In the first place, I thought, because I was told, that Barack Obama's speech last night was fabulous. It was just great. It was uplifting. It was positive. It was Reaganesque. So why wasn't every Democrat in that convention hall last night angry and fit to be tied. That's not what they believe. Why weren't there mass protests? That's not who he is. He doesn't talk that way, except at election time.
RUSH: You go to the media and they're just obsessed with Trump. They just are beside themselves with this. "Trump has endangered American national security. Trump is close to having committed treason." Seriously, I'm not just trying to be outrageous for the sake of it, which I never do, by the way. When all of a sudden did they start caring about this? These are the people with unsecured servers. These are the people whose servers have been hacked by the Russians... I'm gonna try to explain this, what Trump did and what he meant, again. I did yesterday. I was the first to properly characterize this as sarcasm. You know, what Trump was doing was vintage EIB, illustrating absurdity by being absurd.
D'SOUZA: I came to America to live a different kind of life and to experience the American dream. No other country has a dream. There's no Indian dream. There's no French dream. There's no Chinese dream. This is a country where you can start out at the bottom and, if you climb up the ladders of opportunity, you're gonna get ahead.
RUSH: He got self-absorbed in it and didn't want to let go. He's got millions of people! This guy couldn't get noticed by an ant farm six months ago, and now half the country's mesmerized with him? He never wanted to let go of that.
RUSH: That's who I thought I was watching when Clinton was doing his speech. From the voice intonation, from the accent, from the way he was using language, I thought it was J.R. Ewing and I was watching Larry Hagman up there.
