Is Pelosi Trying to Kill the Bill Again?

RUSH: Nancy Pelosi this afternoon had a little press conference. We have two sound bites. They are doozies.PELOSI: Yes, you know, my flagship issue has been energy -- energy security and reversing global warming, and I'm very pleased that in this bill we have the extenders for the investments in clean, renewable energy research and development and -- and in this bill, it is paid for. So I'm -- I'm very -- that was one piece of the energy bill that we couldn't pass last year that is now, uh,...

It's an honor to speak with you.RUSH: Thank you.CALLER: Before I get right to my point, I'm a mother of four.

I appreciate that. Congratulations to your kids.CALLER: Well, I was calling...

Cavuto and Coburn on the Bailout

RUSH: The audio sound bites. This is last night. On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, she interviewed Neil Cavuto about the Senate passing this $850 billion bailout. She said, "A lot of people are very happy about this, but give us the rundown Neil, is this going to save a lot of things, loosen up the credit, get the money flowing."CAVUTO: I use as a proxy just foreign market reaction. The Asian markets are down a little bit, so they were totally unswayed by this. Our futures, our stock futures,...

Hello, sir.CALLER: Mega dittos, Rush, it's an honor to speak to you.RUSH: Thank you.CALLER: But before I start, you could keep me out of the doghouse and make my wife's day.

Is This Crisis Really a Crisis?

RUSH: I want to share two quotes with you. Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) in the Tulsa World newspaper today: "'Every time I have run into hysteria, world coming to an end, I've been on the opposite side and it's turned out to be right.' He recalled the bomb shelters built in the 1950s, warnings in 1970s of another Ice Age and the Y2K concerns. And, now it is almost the same way.'" Michael Crichton, in a speech on complexity: "'[T]here is nothing more sobering than a 30-year-old newspaper. You can't...

Attacks on Palin are Attacks on You

RUSH: The election's over, Chuck Todd said so today on MSNBC. All the polling data, a tipping point's been reached, folks, it's all headed in the direction of Obama. The only good sign for McCain is that the debate is tonight with Palin, but Palin is so incompetent and unqualified, that's a loser. Gwen Ifill is going to be totally fair, we got nothing to worry about here. It's over. Early voting in Ohio going on, that means a lot of fraud probably taking place there. That's what they want...

Why Obama Can't Be President

RUSH: I'd like to say something to you Democrats and independents who have not yet made up your minds (and I know that you are out there) especially those of you who are leaning toward Obama. I want to ask you a question. I want you to ask yourselves a simple question. Apart from wanting a new party in place -- apart from wanting a fresh face in the White House, apart from wanting somebody you think speaks well -- you need to take deep, deep, deep look inside yourselves and ask this: "What exactly...

VP Debate Preview: Spirit of '76

RUSH: Interesting little test I'm going to give you. Do you know who the vice presidential candidates were in 1976? I'll give you a hint. The presidential candidates were Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. Who were the vice presidential candidates in 1976? If you don't know, this is a great illustration of how irrelevant in most cases the vice president is during the campaign. Snerdley, you think you know? Okay. All right, he says Walter Mondale was Jimmy Carter's vice presidential nomination....

Drive-Bys Declare Election Over

RUSH: I want to talk about this Chuck Todd business here and all of the things that are related to it, the fact that the election is over. The media and the Obama campaign are working together now employing this tactic of inevitability, and it needs to be rejected. They are trying to persuade people who would vote for McCain and Palin to not bother because they want you to believe the election's a foregone conclusion. They want you depressed. They want you dispirited. They want to influence...

Senate Bailout Bill Full of Pork

RUSH: Okay, so the Senate bill that passed last night is the size of a novel, 451 pages. You would not believe the pork in this thing. You probably heard about the wooden arrows, and you probably heard about the expansion of bicycle benefits. Oh, yes, you'll hear about it, bicycle benefits to help people get to work, bicycle storage, tax breaks for businesses that encourage people to ride bikes to work and so forth. There's also a provision, as we talked about yesterday, that now includes mental...
