RUSH: Richard Cohen is a columnist for the Washington Post. Richard Cohen has a column out today. Richard Cohen is supposedly one of the wisest, brightest bulbs in the liberal commentariate universe, and Richard Cohen has a column out today, the title of which in the Washington Post is: "Obama Is Cold, Not Cool." Richard Cohen, leading light, wisest, brightest bulbs the liberals have. Column: "Obama Is Cold, Not Cool." Some of you are probably saying, "Wait a minute, wait a minute! Where have I heard that before? Where have I heard this?" You heard it here. You heard it here nearly three years ago.
RUSH ARCHIVE: I didn't see cool. I don't see elegant. I see somebody not even really human. I see somebody devoid of passion. You can spin it in his favor and you can say he is cool under fire, or you can be more realistic and say he's cool only because he's cold -- and there's a big difference. He's without feelings; he's without passion; he's a programmed robot. Remember, he has learned well what he has been taught. He just wants to win. You can barely even insult the guy. He's like a Stepford husband. He's really a cold customer. I think that's what came across to me last night, cold enough to cavort with terrorists, cold enough to cavort with people who want to overturn the capitalist system and make it socialist and do it by way of education. Cold enough to dismiss small-town Americans contemptuously as bitter clingers, cold enough to take our guns away. Obama is cold enough to spread the wealth. He's cold enough to fundamentally change our form of government, cold enough to admire dictators.
RUSH: That was me, El Rushbo, on October 16th of 2008 about the then Democrat presidential nominee, Barack Obama. Some of you are saying, "You do this all the time. You brag about yourself." I'm not bragging. I'm illustrating. (Besides, it isn't bragging if you can do it.) I'm illustrating. It has taken one of the left's leading lights, Richard Cohen, almost four years -- and the Washington Post is a newspaper that's been slavish toward Obama. It's taken Richard Cohen three, four years to see the real Obama. I, El Rushbo, saw it three years ago. That's all I'm saying, pointing out how you listen here you will be and are on the cutting edge of societal evolution.
