RUSH: So I once again have confounded what these guys think should happen. Trump was so bad, in their opinion, that he should just admit it, because everybody knows it. There's no reason to act like it didn't happen. This is their thinking, and just own up to it, you know, just be honest with the audience. The audience knows that you sucked, Mr. Trump, the audience knows you were terrible. Let 'em know that you know, Mr. Trump, and build a bridge of strict relating with them. You tell 'em, Mr. Trump, that you know how bad you were. They already know, and they'll think you're an honest guy. That's what they want Trump to do. Until I entered the fray yesterday with my post-debate analysis, which has now thrown a monkey wrench into what these guys, Halperin and Heilemann, want to happen.
