Dems Can't Decide How to Attack Romney
RUSH: "Democrats Can't Decide if Mitt Romney is a Flip-Flopper or Hard Right Extremist -- It's been interesting to listen to the spin from Democrats about the Iowa caucuses. Clearly, they think that Mitt Romney will be the GOP nominee. For weeks they've been attacking him general-election style, which has probably helped the former Massachusetts governor in the eyes of GOP voters. So how are the attacks going? Judging by the CNN appearance of Congresswoman Debbie [Blabbermouth] Schultz of Florida, chair of the Democratic National Committee, not so well. In a comically-confused broadside, she accused him of being a Tea Party lunatic but also, er, someone who doesn't believe in anything." The Democrats don't know how to go after Romney. They don't know whether to call him a "flip-flopper" or a "hard right extremist." They'll do both! What's the big mystery here?
Panetta Slashes Military
RUSH: "The Pentagon chief, Leon Panetta, says the US will have to make some tradeoffs and take some extra risks under the new military strategy laid out to absorb federal budget cuts. Leon Panetta unveiled the strategy today in a news conference with President Obama and chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Martin Dempsey. Panetta said that future budgets will mean smaller US Armed Forces and greater risk. But he said the country doesn't have to choose between national security and fiscal responsibility. He said, 'At this point in history, in the changing world, the Pentagon would have been forced to make a strategy shift anyway. The money crisis merely forced the government to face the shift that's taking place now.'" So what's gonna happen is we're gonna cut the military, we're gonna increase our risk in a dangerous world. It's gonna happen anyway, and so we may as well do it now when the budget numbers are what they are.
GM Moves Coal-Fired Plants to China, Recalls ALL Chevy Volts
RUSH: After receiving a bailout, ladies and gentlemen, General Motors may move their coal-powered automobile manufacturing to the ChiComs. (New Castrati impression) "What do you mean, Mr. Limbaugh? There's no such thing as a coal-powered car!" Yeah, there is, it's called a Chevy Volt, and it's powered by coal. "No, Mr. Limbaugh, it's powered by battery. Everybody knows that the Chevy Volt is an electric car just like the Fisker and just like the Twisker and just like the others." No, Mr. New Castrati. Where does the electricity come from, you dingbat? Coal-fired power plants! So the coal-powered Chevy Volt, after receiving a bailout, General Motors may move Volt production to China. They don't have to deal with the unions in China, and in the process we get to share whatever technology is in the Volt with the ChiComs.
Okay, folks, I just saw it on the news. General Motors has announced a recall of every Chevrolet Volt ever made. It's a fire risk. They need to do something to strengthen a compartment around the battery. Every GM Volt recalled. It's a fire risk. Okay.
Obama Prepared to Share Missile Defense Secrets with Russia
RUSH: Get this. Washington Times: "Obama signaled Congress this week he is prepared to share US missile defense secrets with Russia. In the president’s signing statement issued Saturday in passing into law the fiscal 2012 defense authorization bill, Mr. Obama said restrictions aimed at protecting top-secret technical data on US Standard Missile-3 velocity burnout parameters might impinge on his constitutional foreign policy authority." So he's just gonna ignore them. "US officials are planning to provide Moscow with the SM-3 data, despite reservations from security officials who say that doing so could compromise the effectiveness of the system by allowing Russian weapons technicians to counter the missile."
We're going to effectively give away the technology to allow the Russians to counter it. "There are also concerns that Russia could share the secret data with China and rogue states --" Could? How about will? "-- such as Iran and North Korea to help their missile programs defeat U.S. missile defenses." Now, it's being said, Obama says we're able to cut the size of our army because he's made the world so much safer. Yeah. Look at the Middle East, cradle of democracy now.
Gitmo Taliban to be Released in Deal
RUSH: "Taliban Leaders Held at Guantánamo Bay to be Released in Peace Talks Deal." UK Guardian: "US agrees in principle to releasing top officials from Afghanistan insurgent group in exchange for starting process of negotiations. The US has agreed in principle to release high-ranking Taliban officials from Guantánamo Bay in return for the Afghan insurgents' agreement to open a political office for peace negotiations in Qatar."
Just like the Muslim Brotherhood. Yeah, yeah, we're gonna turn 'em over. The Muslim Brotherhood, they're just peace-loving people. They're gonna run Egypt. One of the prosecutors says, "Mubarak, we need to shoot him." Mubarak just needs to be shot. He's already on his deathbed as it is.
