WJR Finds a Model Obama Citizen

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Now, this was posted yesterday at ClickOnDetroit.com. It's the website for Channel 4, Eyeball News in Detroit. "Detroit's homeless and low-income residents have another opportunity for a chance at millions of stimulus dollars. The money is available to help low-income residents from becoming homeless and homeless residents to find housing." Seems to me this would include almost all of Detroit now. Now, let me read this to you again, though. "Stimulus money..." You remember, stimulus dollars, shovel-ready job projects? Roads, bridges, schools, outhouses -- whatever the hell needs to be built -- the stimulus was going to hire people to get it built, right? We learned that "Nearly $1 million in Homeland Security funding typically earmarked for fire departments has been awarded to ACORN." This is in the Washington Times.

And now stimulus money "is available to help low-income residents from becoming homeless and homeless residents to find housing." This is nothing but redistribution, this is not stimulus. "Thousands" -- thousands! -- "of people lined up Tuesday. Some people in line falsely believed they were registering for $3,000 stimulus checks from the Obama Administration. City officials told Local 4 that Detroit was granted $15 million to help residents pay bills and their rent or find temporary housing for the homeless. The Detroit Planning and Development Department (PDD) is taking applications Tuesday," this is yesterday, now, "and Wednesday for the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program."

This is all part of the stimulus: "the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program. The remaining 5,000 applications can be picked up Wednesday at the Cobo Hall in the Riverview Ballroom from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m." So I guess right now 5,000 people are lined up out there to participate. "Already filled out applications can be submitted at the Cobo Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or sent in the mail to the Detroit Planning and Development Department at 65 Cadillac Square, Suite 1400," blah, blah blah. Applications must be postmarked by today. Here are the application guidelines -- and, frankly, I hope these people's are handled faster than the Cash-for-Clunkers applications were or these people are going to end up homeless anyway. "To qualify, a person must have been a resident of Detroit for more than six months, must be homeless..."

Wait a second. How can you be a "resident" if you're homeless? That's a minor point. Don't ask, Rush. "[A]person must have been a resident of Detroit for more than six months, must be homeless or facing eviction and must be able to maintain housing after receiving assistance." Yeah, like they're going to follow up and be able to prove... (laughing) "Also, a resident must make 50 percent less than the median area income, which would be less than $24,850 for single Detroit residents and less than $35,500 for a family of four." Now, I believe that according to all the income he can remember Charlie Rangel would qualify for this. All the income that he can't remember he would even qualify. "No mortgage assistance will be available through this program. Once applications are reviewed, only applicants eligible for funding assistance will receive notification from a service provider." The city of Detroit's running this. Folks, there's no telling how long it's going to take to process these applications given that it's a government bureaucracy. They are dealing with potential riots here. People are going down there thinking they're going to get 3,000 bucks. They're not going to get 3,000 bucks. They gotta fill out an application and then wait. So our affiliate, WJR in Detroit was on the scene. News reporter Ken Rogulski went down there and here is an interview with one of the people in line for stimulus cash. Cut 49. I forgot to tell the broadcast engineer we were doing it. I assumed he would. It's cut 49. Three, two, one.

ROGULSKI: Did you get an application to fill out yet?

WOMAN: I sure did. And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.

ROGULSKI: Will you know today how much money you're getting?

WOMAN: No, I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call.

ROGULSKI: Where's the money coming from?

WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the City of Detroit or the state.

ROGULSKI: Where did they get it from?

WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get the funds?

WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from... Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He's the president.

ROGULSKI: In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.

RUSH: Okay. New Zealand is looking better and better and better. "Well, some funds that was forgiven by Obama." Some funds that was "forgiven" by Obama. I'm reminded of the early town meeting in Florida. Obama went down there and some woman actually stood up and asked him when's her new kitchen going to be installed. And another woman stood up: When do I get my new car? (sigh) Hey, we sit here and laugh. This is exactly... This is a model citizen, as far as Obama is concerned. This person that Ken Rogulski interviewed is the classic illustration. That person is the rightful owner of this nation's wealth. That person, that woman has been shafted by the US injustice: Racism, sexism, bigotry, unfairness, immorality. That woman is in the circumstances she's in because America is a flawed nation.

And as such, that woman is going to have what has been rightfully hers all of her life that has never been hers, given to her. That woman is the ideal American citizen. That woman is the citizen and the type of citizen Obama wants to build his future America on. I kid you not. Washington Times. I wasn't making it up. "Nearly $1 million in Homeland Security funding typically earmarked for fire departments has been awarded to ACORN, despite a clear signal from Congress that it intends to cut off federal funding to [ACORN]. The grant to ACORN's Louisiana office became public [five days ago], less than three weeks after the House and Senate voted to cut off ACORN funding after employees were caught on video advising a fake prostitute and pimp on scams."

If you were listening yesterday -- hell, if you were listening the day before, if you've been listening at all -- you have heard me clearly enunciate exactly what Obama's plan is. You heard the teachable moment phone call yesterday with the recent graduate from a university who started out saying, "Rush, I really don't think the Democrats are doing this on purpose. I just think there's bumbling idiots," and in 20 minutes, I gave the man four years of experience. I moved him ahead of the game four years from where he would be if he just had to live through it and come to the conclusions that I gave him himself. The Weekly Standard has an article and it's an outstanding summary of what I have been saying for months now. Let me just give you a quick paragraph from this Weekly Standard article: "that doesn't quite capture the flavor of Obama's mission.

"Obama is not merely observing a downward trend and trying to shepherd this nation through the process. He believes such a downward direction is the morally proper one for America and Americans, the only way we can be forgiven our manifold sins and emerge purified through humility and sacrifice. Obama also believes that he is the special instrument by which the nation can accomplish this transformation. That, more than any specific policy on any specific issue, is the goal of Obama's presidency: the shriving and humbling of America. That is what Obama means by 'fundamental change.'" Weekly Standard. I am glad that this is finally getting out beyond the very broad confines of this radio audience. That is a perfect summary of what this administration is all about: This downward spiral is being shepherded by Obama. It's "morally proper...the only way we can be forgiven our manifold sins and emerge purified through humility and sacrifice." The rightful owners of this nation's wealth... Grab cut 49 again. The rightful owners of this nation's wealth is typified in this sound bite once again from Detroit. This woman, interviewed by WJR Detroit, is the model citizen, the ideal citizen on which Obama wishes to build this new country of his and his power base and his presidency.
ROGULSKI: Did you get an application to fill out yet?

WOMAN: I sure did. And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.

ROGULSKI: Will you know today how much money you're getting?

WOMAN: No, I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call.

ROGULSKI: Where's the money coming from?

WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the City of Detroit or the state.

ROGULSKI: Where did they get it from?

WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get the funds?

WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from... Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He's the president.

ROGULSKI: In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.
