Barack Obama: The Destroyer

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Now, the White House press briefing occurred, Robert Gibbs daily briefing, CBS News correspondent Bill Plante pressed Gibbs on this jobs report.

PLANTE: You're making these jobs that you say have been counted so carefully sound like a scientific -- a number that can be observed scientifically.

GIBBS: At three o'clock you'll be able to observe it holistically on your computer.

PLANTE: Each one of these so-called saved or created jobs represents a concrete new job or saved job?

GIBBS: Yes.

PLANTE: Or two part-time jobs?

GIBBS: Yes.

PLANTE: Your critics don't believe that it's possible to count anything like that.

GIBBS: The critics didn't think the recovery plan would help the economy grow, but I think the critics, if you put 50 cents in the newspaper machine and pull the arm, you'll see that our critics haven't been so right.

RUSH: What an idiot. What an absolute idiot! (laughing) Did you note when these phony numbers are coming out? Three o'clock, right as this program ends. Three o'clock, the phony number jobs created or saved by the stimulus will come out.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: How about Gibbs? Gibbs is out there telling Bill Plante, "What you need to do out there, Bill, is go put 50 cents in the box, pull the lever, and get a newspaper out of there." Newspaper? Who reads newspapers anymore? I have here a story about TIME Magazine: "Signaling that worse times are ahead for magazines, Time Inc. is expected to announce next week that it will cut $100 million from costs, including another big round of layoffs." That means journalists.

"Time Inc., the publisher of magazines like Time, Fortune, and People, has already cut costs drastically: a year ago, it announced it was dismissing 6 percent of its work force, or about 600 people. The timing is coordinated with the third-quarter earnings announcement from its parent company, Time Warner, sources said. That is scheduled for Wednesday morning. ... But that was apparently not enough to make up for revenue declines. The $100 million in costs is expected to come largely from layoffs, said sources, who asked to remain anonymous as they were not authorized to discuss the matter. ... A number of Time Inc. employees are covered by a union contract, which mandates severance in case of layoffs. Employees of Time, Sports Illustrated, People, Money, Fortune and Fortune Small Business are covered by agreements with the Newspaper Guild of America." You always find a union in these messes, don't you?

Now, I wonder how these journalists are feeling about hope and change these days. These journalists that work at TIME Inc., I wonder how they feel about this hope and change. I predict to you that there will be a bailout of newspapers. Small-town newspapers to start, but I predict to you that there will be a bailout of media at some point. By the way, to go back to Gibbs saying that every job saved or created announced at three o'clock today will be able to statistically documented. From NBC's Meet the Press in June of 2009, Vice President Biden said everybody "guessed wrong" on the impact of the economic stimulus. Biden says the economy was worse off than anybody thought when officials estimated the number of jobs that could be saved or created under the Porkulus bill. Biden says the White House economist used standard formulas to estimate that three-and-a-half million jobs would be saved or created. The new era of personal responsibility, too, remember that? They're going to give us numbers today and we're supposed to believe somehow these guys are so much more knowledgeable now than they were just back in June. Just guessed wrong, he said. Yeah. We just guessed wrong. Joe Biden.

RUSH: I want to go back to audio sound bite number 25, the White House press briefing this afternoon, Bill Plante from CBS Pravda talking to Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary. Remember, now, last June Biden was on Meet the Press and said, (paraphrasing) "Yeah, we just guessed wrong on the stimulus. Bush left us in such bad shape, we had no idea, we just guessed wrong on the number of jobs it created." But today at three o'clock they're going to release the actual number of jobs created and saved because of Obama's stimulus plan. Bill Plante with a question-and-answer session here with Robert Gibbs.

PLANTE: You're making these jobs that you say have been counted so carefully sound like a scientific -- a number that can be observed scientifically.

GIBBS: At three o'clock you'll be able to observe it holistically on your computer.

PLANTE: Each one of these so-called saved or created jobs represents a concrete new job or saved job?

GIBBS: Yes.

PLANTE: Or two part-time jobs?

GIBBS: Yes.

PLANTE: Your critics don't believe that it's possible to count anything like that.

GIBBS: The critics didn't think the recovery plan would help the economy grow, but I think the critics, if you put 50 cents in the newspaper machine and pull the arm, you'll see that our critics haven't been so right.

RUSH: All right. So you heard him. They've got a scientific formula. They can prove, document every job saved and every job created. Now, I'm close to losing my temper here. Mr. Gibbs, your boss has destroyed millions of jobs. Your boss, Barack Obama, has destroyed millions of small businesses. Your boss, Mr. Gibbs -- and you are party to this because you promote this disaster -- your boss has destroyed the lives of countless American families. What is this excrement about jobs saved or jobs created? Barack Obama is destroying this economy. He is destroying management. He's destroying assembly lines. He's destroying opportunity. He's destroying hope. He's destroying liberty for future generations. He hasn't created or saved a damn thing. Barack Obama destroys. He destroys and destroys. The only jobs he's created are government jobs. He stole money, just like Pelosi is figuring and planning to steal money, with no accountability. Obama has stolen money from the private sector and paid people to work for him so that he can steal more.

This administration is engaging in unconstitutional acts. This country does not provide constitutionally for a pay czar to tell anybody what they can and cannot earn. This Constitution does not provide for the government to mandate its citizens buy anything. He is destroying home ownership, Barack Obama is. He is destroying entrepreneurship. He is destroying the industrial heart of this nation. He is trying to destroy the military. Barack Obama creates nothing but havoc and unsettledness and angst and for Peggy Noonan, disheartenment. Barack Obama is a destroyer. Not a creator. The only people creating and saving is us, the American people. The American people are doing everything they can to save their jobs. Small businesses are doing everything they can to hold onto their employees and maybe hire some more. The economic heart of this engine is its people; it is not Barack Obama. The intellectual heart of this nation is our people; it is not Barack Obama. The last best hope of this nation is our people; it is not Barack Obama.

Barack Obama is an obstacle in the way of the people who make this country work, and it is an insult to my intelligence, it is audacious for this man and his administration to be putting out fraudulent, phony numbers about the numbers of jobs he has created or saved. We have lost 3.3 million jobs since Barack Obama was inaugurated. If you want to talk about lost, created, saved, you can add up all the created and saved you want and you can try this phony game, "Well, it would be even worse if we hadn't done what we did," it is as bad as it is and getting worse precisely because of what Obama's done. If there is any growth in this country, and if there is any hope, it is from the American people, not from Barack Obama. Not from Nancy Pelosi. Not from Harry Reid. Not from Barney Frank. We are living in the most unreal times. Government is to blame for whatever problems we have. Now with Pelosi out there and her massive health care scheme which is nothing more than an attack on liberty and freedom some of the most outrageous tax increases that you have ever heard about, piled on top of the mess that they've already created.

No, my friends, this administration isn't creating anything. This administration isn't saving anything. This administration is destroying, on purpose. This administration says, "We want to remake America, we're gonna remake it." They don't like the way America was founded; they don't like the way America was constituted. None of Obama's buddies that he grew up with, influenced by, none of them like the way this country was founded, the way it was established, the way it is constituted. And they are in the process of changing. These elections next week are important because they'll be the first ones since people have finally awakened and found out just exactly who and what Obama and his administration are.
