RUSH: Indianapolis and Jeff. Jeff, I'm glad you waited. Great to have you with us on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Hi there, Rush. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
RUSH: Same to you, sir, thank you very much.
CALLER: Thanks and thanks for almost making me drive my car off the road with that introduction to Moochelle Obama, I was laughing so hard.
CALLER: Wow. Hey, I was watching the Republican debate last night, and by far that was my favorite. I thought everybody showed up and had very thoughtful answers. I thought Newt shined again, but as I was listening to the thought-out answers, especially regarding immigration, I found myself listening to the debate now through the prism of what is President Obama's position on this.
CALLER: And I was curious, anyone on the panel probably could have answered that question regarding the questions they were receiving.
RUSH: You mean is there a position Obama has that is known and that they could have come up with?
CALLER: That is correct.
CALLER: I was trying to think back to the debates with McCain and Obama, and I was like, did he just get a pass on these questions or am I just not remembering, or does he have a position on these or was he just voting "present"?
RUSH: Well, it's an excellent question. I know what Obama's position on immigration is, but I can't tell you the last time he stated it. But it's obvious what it is if you watch how he sues states that want to deal with open borders. If you watch who his friends are, I know that he wants full and total amnesty. And I think once he's reelected, if he gets a second term, all bets are off. There's no more accountability. He doesn't have to worry about being reelected. He doesn't have to worry about a damn thing, so I think in the second term is where he's holding out a lot of things. Right now on practically every position Obama takes -- like he pardoned the turkey today. I don't think Obama respects our Thanksgiving tradition. I think he thinks it's all a bunch of bunk.
When he talks about the American dream and working hard and you'll be rewarded, he doesn't believe that. He thinks that's a myth. I think Obama has to disguise his left-wing extremism. But when he's reelected, if he's reelected, there's not gonna be any need for it. He doesn't care about the Democrat Party. We know that. So in a second term, I think -- you know, Chris Matthews asked the other day, "We don't know what he's gonna do the second term, what's he gonna do?" He can't tell us, which I said to Matthews, he cannot afford to tell anybody what he's gonna do in a second term or he would not get reelected, but, for example, when it comes to immigration, if he is reelected, he is going to punish his enemies and La Raza's enemies with full and total amnesty. He's already taking steps that equate to backdoor amnesty.
All you have to do is ask Obama's aunt and uncle what they think about illegal aliens. He has members of his family in the country who are illegal. This is what concerns me about a second term. And Chris Matthews bringing this up, by the way, in a frustrated manner, (imitating Matthews) "What is his second term? He should be informing the troops. He should be marshaling his forces. He should be getting everybody ready and on board." And he doesn't dare, in my mind. This is my great fear, folks. He doesn't dare tell anybody what his second term intends. When he doesn't have to worry about getting reelected there's no longer any reason to camouflage or mask any of it. There's no longer any reason to pretend that he has ties to the great traditions of this country. There's no longer any reason to make people think that he's something that he's not.
I think if he gets reelected he's gonna look, "Okay, I got four years here to complete the total transformation of this country," for whatever his motivations are, which we've discussed time and time again. But I think the reason why Obama does not announce these positions is because he can't. But we know he's for full, total amnesty, and he'll make it happen as quickly as he can. He is of the belief that every minority in this country is a victim. Every minority, every individual person who is a minority is a victim, has been screwed, has been shafted by the very structure of this country, by the very Constitution. And his objective is to fix that, take care of that.
He has embraced Occupy Wall Street twice. Most recently this week. He's embraced it. It is the chaos that he wants. He told a bunch of hecklers in Manchester, New Hampshire, "You're the reason I ran for office." They are the people in his mind who have been shafted by the inherent, fundamental, foundational unfairness of this country by virtue of its unfair, discriminatory, bigoted Constitution. I don't think anybody on the Republican side has got the guts to say it the way I'm saying it. I don't think a Republican presidential candidate would say it the way I'm saying it because most people don't want to believe that they've elected somebody who has those designs.
But folks, what was the budget deficit in George W. Bush's last year in office? Do you know what it was? It was $170 billion. Obama wants you to think that two wars, Iraq and Afghanistan and a bunch of entitlements have done this. But they haven't. In fact, the entitlements have not created this debt. That was already on the books. This is brand-new deficit spending such as the stimulus, such as Obamacare. Oh, my God, folks, if that gets fully implemented in the second term, I shudder to think.
