Obama Sees America as an Immoral Nation


RUSH: This is Tim in Louisville. Great to have you on the program, Tim. Hello, sir.

CALLER: NASCAR dittos from the derby city, Rush.

RUSH: Well, thank you. Great to have you here.

CALLER: I need you to untie the other half of your brain because we're in .6% territory right now. You're misreading the president's intentions. He sees himself as a champion of the disenfranchised populace in the inner cities. If you think about his history, he graduated from Harvard, a liberal bastion, and he spent the majority his career working in the inner city of Chicago where there's an entire permanent welfare underclass.

RUSH: Right.

CALLER: He believes that the government in general and the social order in particular is leaving these people behind.

RUSH: Right.

CALLER: That is the real mission of his presidency. Everything he does --

RUSH: Well, how is that working out? How is that working out?

CALLER: It's something that you'd have to look further down the road to see --

RUSH: No, I don't need to look down the road. Government can't bring people along. The Democrat Party, if you want to see government bringing people along, you take a look at what the Democrat Party's done to the black family. You take a look at any constituency group of the Democrat Party that started out poor. They are poorer than when the Democrats began to help 'em. Look what they have done to the schools. Look at what they have done to every institution they claim to want to help. The only people who are making out in the Democrat Party are the unions. The only people who are making out are elected Democrats and the Kennedy family and other high-wealth Democrat individuals like Nancy Pelosi. But the people the Democrat Party has told, "We care about you. We're the only ones that care about you. We're bringing you along." They're losing ground; they're getting poorer; they're getting hungrier; they're getting thirstier; they're getting angrier because it's an empty promise.

The Democrat Party can't bring anybody along. Government can't bring anybody along. But, you know, I don't disagree with you totally. You are closer to being right than you know when you say that Obama has looked and he has seen the people left behind. That's not what he sees. What he sees is a country of immorality. Obama sees a nation that has not gotten beyond its slavery past. He sees a nation that has not gotten beyond its immorality, its racism, its sexism, its bigotry and homophobia. He looks at this country and he's got a chip on his shoulder. When he goes around the world and apologizes for this country, it's because he thinks this country's guilty, this country needs to be cut down a size or two.

This country needs to find out what it's like to be a different country than the rest of the world. He believes this country's greatness has not come from our people; he believes this country's greatness has come from theft. We have stolen oil; we have stolen resources; we have stolen people; we have stolen land; we've stolen everything to be great. None of it was ours. It's about time we paid the price. So he's knocking us down a peg or two. We are gonna find out what it's like to be a victim of the United States. That's what he and his wife view as their mission. Now, you got close to describing it correctly but you got the motivation wrong. I'm glad you called.


RUSH: Now, our previous caller, as I said, he was not totally wrong; he's just got Obama's motivations factored a little incorrectly. Obama went to New Hampshire today, and he got heckled, but he said something. These were Occupy people who heckled him. Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Whatever this Occupy bunch was. Here's Obama's full quote to them when they shut down and they stopped heckling him. Obama said to them, "Families like yours, young people like the ones here today -- including the ones who were just chanting at me -- you're the reason that I ran for office in the first place." I kid you not. You sit out there and laugh at it, but he has embraced the Occupy movement.

This is what the caller was saying. These are the people left behind. Obama believes this country institutionally creates people like this. Those people -- those lazy, slovenly losers -- are only losers because America is unfair. It's not because they have anything to do with it, not because they may not work, not because they may not try very hard, not because they had been ill-educated themselves. No, it's America's fault, and they are the reason he ran for office. Fine. Well, what's he done for 'em? He wants them to think that they're not gonna have to pay their student loans.

He wants them to think they're never gonna have to pay for a house. He wants them to think they're never gonna have to pay for a car. And that's why he wants them to vote for him. And then he has the audacity, in the same speech, to talk about the American dream -- the American dream being you work hard and you will be rewarded? And here he is embracing a bunch of losers? The last thing they want to do is work, and they are the reason he ran? Listen to what he says, folks. There are times that the left slips up, and they tell you exactly who they are, what they are, what they gonna do. You just have to have the courage to listen to 'em.
