Drive-Bys Celebrate: Democrats Sounded Like God-Loving, Patriotic Republicans!

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? 

My Question for Progressives

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? 

I Know What's Bothering You

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.

Flag-Waving May Backfire on Dems

RUSH: I'm gonna make you a prediction: This patriotism, this "USA," this flag-flying stuff? I won't be surprised if it backfires to a certain extent on a certain percentage of that voting base if they keep it up.

A Young Black Man's Brilliant Insights Inspired by Straight Outta Compton

CALLER: I think most black people, white people, all people, Americans, we need to stand up and say, "Listen, Jesse Jackson, listen Al Sharpton, listen race-baiters, whoever you may be -- of whatever political stripe you may be, I don't care -- if you're gaming the system and if you're perpetuating hate in our kids' hearts, I don't care if you're a rapper, you're a politician, you're an Action Coalition, you're a street organizer. Whatever you call yourself, if you're perpetuating this in our children's hearts, stop.

That Wasn't Barack Obama Last Night

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.  

What Trump Did and Why He Did It

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. 

Dinesh D'Souza on Hillary's America

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.

Why Did Crazy Bernie Hang in So Long?

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.

Trump Hijacks the Democrat Convention

RUSH:  I really don't believe that I have ever seen what I just saw.  I've been thinking.  I've been trying to dig deep into the dark crevices of my memory, and I don't think I've ever seen what I just saw.  Donald Trump just hijacked the Democrat convention after the biggest night of that convention so far... He just concluded a freewheeling, no-holds-barred, no-controls-on-the-media, "Whatever you want to ask me, ask me," press conference the day after the supposedly biggest event yet in the Democrat National Convention. He just totally hijacked it, and he was brilliant.  

Tongue-in-Cheek Trump Comment on Russia Causes Total Media Meltdown

RUSH: It's amazing.  There is a joint party meltdown going on over Trump's press conference, particularly one tongue-in-cheek comment. One tongue-in-cheek comment, which has served the purpose of refocusing everybody's attention on Hillary's emails, is causing a multiple-party and multiple-movement meltdown, both on cable news and on social media... Listen to this.  This is David Gregory on a roundtable at CNN today, and this... It's as close as I can get playing one sound bite to sum up the conniption fit that is happening out there.

You Want Change? Trump Is It

RUSH:  Last night the theme of the Democrat convention, the theme of the Bill Clinton speech -- and there were many in there. But one of the big themes was that Hillary's a change-maker... If you want to talk about change, Donald Trump has done more to change the political landscape and the political dialogue in this country than any of the people on the Democrat National Convention stage the last two nights. 

Hillary's Not a Great Example of Discrimination Against Women

RUSH: I just don't think anybody really attaches all that much significance to her doing this.  I don't mean there's not a glass ceiling, and I didn't mean to imply that women haven't suffered such discrimination.  I just don't think Hillary can make a claim of it...  I just don't think she's the greatest example of discrimination here. A woman who gets a quarter of a million dollars for a 20-minute speech?

Democrat Psychosis on Display

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. 

Michelle Thinks America Is Great Now That Her Husband Has Transformed It

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.

My Idea for a Short Trump Speech

RUSH: My idea for a short Trump speech, maybe an intro to the speech that he's gonna give to his improv at all of these appearances, is just list who the Democrats are.  Black Lives Matter, New Black Panthers, Occupy Wall Street, stripping God from their party platform, transgender bathroom advocates, pro-death panels, baby butchers!

The 2000 Recount Changed Democrats Forever

RUSH: The Democrats have never been the same since that recount.  They've always been liberal, but the radicals have taken over that party.  The protestor generation of the sixties has come of age, taken over that party, 100 percent.  There aren't any mainstream, moderate Democrats left. 

Who Does Trump Hate?

RUSH:  We've known Donald Trump for 30 years or more.  Donald Trump has been in the public eye for 30 years.  He's been hosting his TV shows. He has been on every news show there is! Donald Trump is everywhere.  Donald Trump's one of the biggest celebrities in this country -- and only when he started running for office did he all of a sudden become a racist. 

DNC Emails Prove What We Knew

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. 

Trump Poll Bounce Rattles Experts

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.

Democrats: Party of Doom and Gloom

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.  

Bernie Protestors Swarm Philly

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. 

28 Years of Confounding the Left

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.
