Nets Refuse to Air Romney Speech
RUSH: All the networks refused to carry Romney's speech last night even though they were asked to cover it. They refused to.
Marine Corps Kick Out Sergeant for Criticizing Obama
RUSH: I just saw this headline on Drudge: "Marine Corps Kicking Sergeant Out for Criticizing Obama." (interruption) Has that story been around for a while? Have you heard that? (interruption) What do you mean if it's the same guy? Well, it's one of these things that says, "Developing." So it's not a link yet.
Okay. It's the same Marine. It's not a new story. It's the same Marine who criticized Obama on his Facebook page, and the story is Marine "Corpse," as Obama would say, "Marine Corps Decides to Discharge Sergeant for Facebook Postings Criticizing President Obama." This sergeant, Gary Stein, is going to receive "other-than-honorable discharge" for Facebook comments criticizing Obama. "He served nearly ten years in the Marine Corps. He posted comments on both his Facebook page and on the Armed Forces Tea Party Facebook page that he created mocking" The One. "On those pages he referred to Obama as 'a domestic enemy.'
"He also posted, 'As an active duty Marine, I say, "Screw Obama!" I will not follow all orders for him. As for saluting Obama as commander-in-chief, I will not.' Allen West, Darrell Issa, Duncan Hunter have come to his defense and asked the Marine Corps to find a way to discipline him short of a dishonorable discharge," but they've been ignored. He's probably gonna lose all of his benefits, by the way. Is this the guy that Ron Paul brought up and put on stage? (interruption) That's a different one? (interruption) Okay. This is not the guy you're thinking of? His name wasn't Stein? (interruption) Oh, okay.
Original Global Warming Alarmist Recants
RUSH: Does the name James Lovelock ring a bell? Do you know who that is? James Lovelock was hailed as one of the giants of the global warming industry. This is the guy who created the whole Gaia theory. Gaia, earth is God, Gaia. He was one of the original environmentalist wackos. He was one of the original "man is destroying the planet" guys. And he has recanted. He was one of the original alarmists.
"James Lovelock, the maverick scientist," a scientist, and they are infallible, right? "James Lovelock, the maverick scientist who became a guru to the environmental movement with his 'Gaia' theory of the Earth as a single organism, has admitted to being 'alarmist' about climate change and says other environmental commentators, such as Al Gore, were too. Lovelock, 92, is writing a new book in which he will say climate change is still happening, but not as quickly as he once feared."
He really thought that by 2020 there wouldn't be a south Florida. It would be underwater. And now he's recanting. He overestimated. In 2006, Lovelock wrote, "before this century is over billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable." In 2007 TIME Magazine called him a hero of the environment. So in 2006 he says the only place we're gonna be able to live will be the Arctic. Next year TIME calls him a hero. Today he's recanting. It's another one, another environmentalist wacko, as he ages -- he's 92 -- is coming clean. It was all a ruse. It was all a joke. It was all exaggerated. It was all made up. Still believes it, but says it isn't occurring in any way like he had expected.
Bamster Outraged Over Student Loan Debt?
RUSH: Obama is campaigning at some university in Iowa, and he is outraged, outraged, I tell you, that the current student loan debt averaged $25,000. He's outraged, fit to be tied. Somebody needs to tell Obama that each American's share of the national debt right now is $50,000. To be precise, $50,038 according to the national debt clock. What's he gonna do about this? Is Obama outraged by that? Student loan debt, 25 grand, debt per taxpayer is $50,038? Almost twice.
Folks, it's even better. The amount owed by every taxpayer in this country to pay off the national debt is $138,000. For every citizen, it's $50,000. So Obama's in Iowa outraged that student loan debt is 25 grand, but the amount of money every taxpayer owes, his share, her share of the national debt is $138,000, and I don't see him outraged by that debt at all.
