Why I'm Not Depressed and Panicked -- And You Can't Allow Yourself to Be Either

RUSH:  When you turn on CNN, MSNBC, when you read any newspaper, when you go to over half the websites out there, you are not reading the media; you are not reading the news.  You are reading the Clinton campaign and a coordinated effort to distract you, to depress you, to dispirit you, and to suppress your interest in voting.  The objective is to make you think you have no chance, that everybody else is aligned against you.

New Ad Uses Michelle's Words About the Most-Cheated-On Woman in America

RUSH: Here's Obama running for the nomination in '08, Hillary's running for it, too, and he sends his wife out to basically start talking about the marital infidelities and Hillary being the most cheated-on woman in America, unable to "run her own house," and how can we dare let somebody like that in the White House? Now these two are supposedly the best of friends and Obama and Michelle run around saying that nobody's more qualified ever to be president than Hillary Clinton.

The National Debt Doesn't Resonate

RUSH: For 50 years I have heard people warn about the ramifications of running up this debt, that it is going to provide just a horrible, horrible burden for children and grandchildren.  And throughout the 50 years, I don't think anybody can dispute that the economy has grown, that up until about 15 years ago wages were increasing and wealth was advancing.  Now, I don't want to get into an esoteric conversation here about economics.  I'm not making the case for big national debt.  I'm saying that all my life I heard how it was gonna be the end of me, and it hasn't been.  

Will Wolf Blitzer Break Any News About Bill and Hillary's Accusers?

RUSH: Why isn't this news to somebody like Wolf Blitzer? Here's a woman who claims that Bill Clinton raped her, and there has not been a rock solid refutation of that. It continues to survive out there. And she's explaining that she's afraid of the retribution that the Clintons are known for. Do you think this would be news to anybody in the Drive-By Media? Of course not.

The Alicia Machado Story Is So Absurd! It's Hillary Clinton Who Bullies Women!

RUSH: The thing that's ironic about this, they're claiming that Donald Trump bullied this ex-Miss Universe.  Has anybody asked about Hillary Clinton bullying all of the bimbos that have erupted during the course of her and her husband's political career? This is so screwed up. If there is anybody in this campaign who doesn't pay women what she pays men in her office, it's Hillary Clinton. If there's a woman in this campaign that bullies other women and has been acclaimed for it, it is Hillary Clinton.

Examining the Post-Debate Polls

RUSH: The upside here is that, even though Hillary won in these three scientific polls, she got no momentum out of it that they can find in the polling data. Trump didn't lose any ground. Hillary didn't gain any ground. 

Are There Really Any Undecideds?

RUSH: I have a tough time understanding how you're undecided, but people claim that they are. The media exploits it, too, let's not forget. And what benefit could there be to the media, which means the Hillary campaign, exploiting the whole notion of the undecided?

Trump Won't Skip the Remaining Debates

RUSH:  Look, folks, let me just put something to bed here real quick.  Donald Trump is not going to bag the next debate for one reason:  The media has proclaimed him the loser.  He is not going to pull out of this debate with the Drive-Bys saying he's a loser.  He's too competitive.  If he had won the first debate, maybe. Maybe.  

Your Host Ruins the Post-Debate Glow for Mark Halperin and John Heilemann

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.

In 30 Years of Public Life, Hillary Clinton Has Never Made Anyone Feel Good

RUSH: People don't remember what anybody said in that debate, and, by the end of the day today, they really won't. But they're not gonna forget how they felt during that debate. You know, I'm one of these guys that I lament the role feelings plays in so much of our culture, but I can't deny it, and this is unalterably true. Unless you have a particularly advanced power of communication skill like I do, people do remember what I say. Most people do not. But they never forget how you make 'em feel. And I'm telling you: Hillary didn't make anybody feel special that night. She came across as robotic, a witch with a capital "B." Trump inspired feelings among his supporters that they enjoyed and wanted more of.

Millennial: Debate Excited Me for Trump

CALLER: I'm 31 years old, Millennial by age, not by association. It's not my fault I was born with them, but fiscal conservative. I'm much more a product of my own environment when it comes to social issues, such as gay marriage, you know, birth control, those types of things. So, for the last few years, really since I first started voting in '04, I've not been too excited about our candidates...

My Weird Memory of Shimon Peres

RUSH: He started ragging on Reagan. He started taunting me, taunting me about Reagan, and he was making comments about people destroying trees, which was an early allusion to climate change, and he kept undoing his belt. We're sitting there, the meeting started out with 20 people in the room and then about 15 left, it was five of us and him. He kept undoing his belt and reattaching his belt, while seated.

Ohio Voter Annoyed by Lib Aunt

CALLER: Earlier this summer we had a Left Coast blue state relative visit the family, and she seemed to have a personal mission to suppress our votes in the upcoming election.  She encouraged us all to sit this one out, not to vote at all.  She also told my 18-year-old daughter, who will be a first-time voter, that she was too young to understand the issues and that she should sit it out as well. 

Trump Changes It All! You Can't See This Debate Through the Traditional Prism

RUSH: I was trying to watch this thing not falling into the trap of watching it within the confines and through the prism of how we usually watch these. Trump changes all of this. Every day of the campaign, Trump changes this.  And you can say whatever you want about Trump missing golden opportunities, whiffing at hanging curveballs, letting Hillary off the hook, the rigged nature of the moderator and so forth.  But one thing came through crystal clear last night:  Donald Trump showed everybody and reminded many that he is not of the system. He is not a Washington insider, and he is not responsible for any of the mess or messes that exist today.... I don't expect to be listened to on this.  But what the Drive-Bys and the people that create these narratives don't understand is Trump... When they see Trump on defense, when they see Trump in a defensive posture, his supporters see Trump attacking.  His supporters see Trump defending in ways the Republican Party hasn't in a long time.  They see Trump standing up for them.  They see Trump standing up for himself. They see Trump standing up against Hillary and throwing it right back at her.  

When Condescending Hillary Attacks Trump, She Attacks His Supporters

RUSH: Hillary Clinton was condescending. She was rolling her eyes at times. She was clearly insulting Trump by looking like she thought he was an idiot.  People notice this stuff, like Algore sighing throughout the first debate he had with George W. Bush.  And every Drive-By Media inside-the-Beltway establishment member is gonna miss all of this because they judge these debates on words, rhetoric.

The "Fact Checkers" Are Full of It

RUSH: I just wanted to share with you the examples of these "fact checks" because this has become a campaign plank. The idea that Trump needs to be fact-checked is nothing more than a phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock 'n' roller technique to allow journalism to do opinion hits on Trump...

Trump's Debate Performance Will Only Improve (And He Wasn't Sniffling)

RUSH: Trump got beat up for this last night, for having the sniffles.  He didn't have the sniffles last night.  Because I am a highly trained broadcast specialist who understands the technology here.  That's how Trump was breathing.  They have positioned the mic -- I don't know -- not charging anything here, but his mic was positioned in such a way that you were able to hear him inhale. 

What Is Hillary So Afraid Of?

RUSH: The Clinton campaign has sent marching orders to its Drive-By Media buddies to plaster, which they have done, since yesterday, story after story after story about Trump a liar.  I mean, that's the basic premise.  Donald Trump is a liar and Lester Holt needs to fact check him in the middle of the debate.  Lester Holt needs to challenge Donald Trump on every lie he utters, and that's practically every time he opens his mouth... I have never seen something so transparent.  And from a supposed front-runner, Hillary Clinton, this reeks of some of the greatest fear that I have ever seen.  She can't beat this guy without stacking the deck?  She can't beat this guy without rigging it with the referee?  She can't beat this guy without the entire worldwide media piling on her opponent?  I mean, that's the message this is sending. 

Zeleny: Clinton Gives Up in Ohio

RUSH: Are you kidding me?  The Hillary campaign's writing off Ohio?  Let me tell you about Ohio.  There's one stat you need to know about Ohio if you believe stats, and that is Republicans do not win the White House if they don't win Ohio.  Another way of putting it that's less confusing without all the double negatives: In order for the Republican historically, statistically, to win the White House, he or she has to win Ohio.  And now Hillary's pulling up stakes and getting out of there.

Nate Silver: Trump Is Ahead!

RUSH:  Uh-oh.  There's gonna be real panic out there now because Nate Silver has just announced that Donald Trump would win if the election were held today.  Trump now has a 54.9% chance of winning the election.  Nate Silver.  You'd better close the windows on high buildings where Democrats are in offices.  It's not gonna be pretty.

Trump's Crowds: Does Size Matter?

RUSH: It's gone on long enough now, since last summer, every Trump rally is a near, if not full, sellout.  Every Trump rally is loud and raucous and is made up of people personally committed to Trump.  And there's been months and months and months of it. 

The Smartest Woman in the World Needs Lester Holt to Save Her

RUSH: Smartest woman in the world, more qualified to be president than anybody who's ever been president, but all of a sudden she needs a moderator to point out Trump's lies because she doesn't have time to do that because if that's all she did she wouldn't have time to spell out her vision for America.  The smartest woman in the world.  I think they are lowering expectations for her.  And I think they are -- how do I say this politically?  How do I say this?  I really think their main objective is keeping her vertical for 90 minutes.

Scott Adams Nails It on Trump's "Pacing and Leading"

RUSH: You all read the cartoon Dilbert?  You've heard of the guy, right?  He's got an interesting piece here.  It's a very long piece about why he switched his endorsement from Clinton to Trump.  And there are a number of reasons.  I want to focus on reason number five that he gives.  This is really, really insightful. 

Dems Prep for Caricature of Trump

RUSH: Their prejudices, their bigotry about Trump confounds their strategy and their thinking.  They have created a caricature out of Trump, and it's not who he really is.  And they are going to try to bait him into behaving the way they think he is with characteristics they think he portrays, which is wrong.  And it's gonna bite 'em, or it could.  

The FBI Investigation into Hillary's Emails Was a Giant Cover-Up for Obama

RUSH: This document dump from Friday, Hillary's emails and what we've learned.  I mean, this is just stunning when we learn that Obama knew all along that she had her own private server and was communicating with her under a pseudonym, a fake name, while Obama has maintained that he didn't know she had a private server until he read about it in the news.  And because now we know Obama knew and was communicating with her under a fake name, we now know that the FBI investigation was a smoke screen and cover-up from the get-go, from the beginning.
