RUSH: Elizabeth Warren, folks, I've been thinking about this. Why should she have to prove her heritage? Now, remember, she's a liberal. And she's asserted there's no documentation for this. There's no evidence that she is one-thirty-second Cherokee, and she makes the assertion throughout her career because somebody in her family told her that somebody in her family way-back-when was Cherokee. So her ratio is one-thirty-second Cherokee, and the proof is in the cheekbones. Remember that? I got to thinking, she's a liberal. Why should she have to provide proof of heritage. Liberals don't believe in documentation of anything. Birth certificates, ID at the voting booth. (laughing) Sorry, couldn't help that. They don't. They don't believe in any kind of documentation whatsoever.
So here we have Elizabeth "Low Cheekbones" Warren, and she's a perfect liberal. She wants membership without paying the dues. Paying dues, that's for suckers. Paying for anything, that's for suckers. Only suckers actually use their own money to buy stuff. So Elizabeth "Low Cheekbones" Warren has inserted herself into the Cherokee tribe like Obama inserted himself in the biographies of former presidents. Did you see that? I had this in the stack yesterday; I didn't get to it. At the White House website there are presidential biographies, and Obama has inserted himself in them, in a lot of them. Every one but Gerald Ford. He ties what FDR did to what he's doing today.
So the RNC put some pictures out. Obama was there when we landed on the moon. Obama was there when MacArthur got the Japanese to sign the treaty aboard the USS Missouri. Obama was everywhere. Even Bob Beckel at Fox is a little nervous about this. A lot of people on the Democrat side are nervous about it, because, A, it indicates a profound insecurity. Number two, it's an out-of-control ego. Number three, it's not true. Grab audio sound bite 25. It's the last one here in the Stack. This was last night on The Five at Five on the Fox News Channel. The co-host and schoolmarm Dana Perino. And I say that affectionately. Schoolmarm, she's gotta control the class, the roundtable of hosts, guests, and whatever else on The Five.
She's speaking with Beckel about changes to the White House's website biographies of past presidents to include blurbs about how Obama has capitalized on the efforts of those presidents. Whatever a former president is known for or did, Obama has inserted himself into the biographies to show how he has capitalized and moved forward all of these great achievements of past presidents. So Obama is "slow-jamming" history is essentially what he's doing. He's inserting himself in it. It's laughable. It's an indication of an out-of-control ego, narcissism, you name it. So Dana Perino said to Beckel, "On a serious note, somebody at the White House has too much time on their hands. This is taxpayer money that pays for the salaries of people actually going back and doing this type of thing, inserting Obama into these biographies. Bob, what about this?"
BECKEL: Another serious note, it is -- Obama does enjoy a great deal of -- of people have a positive image of him. He’s very close here, this arrogance thing, to grabbing hold. And you gotta -- you've got to think through this right now that what Republicans are going to push is this line about him being arrogant. And you don't feed the beast.
RUSH: By that Beckel means don't act arrogant. Republicans are gonna call you arrogant, and Beckel, you can hear it in his voice, he knows the American people think Obama is arrogant and pompous, and he knows that this feeds into it. And I wouldn't be surprised if it was Obama himself who inserted himself in the biographies, and if he didn't actually go online and do it, nobody can convince me that he wasn't involved somehow. This wasn't the act of some eager beaver staffer wanting to impress. You know, all things start from the top and either somebody got the idea for this because of what they heard Obama say, or because they know him well and know that this would please him, or because he ordered it done. It's one of those three things. And it is arrogance on parade.
Let me give you an example of a typical Obama insertion. "President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare into law in 1965 -- providing millions of elderly healthcare stability. President Obama’s historic healthcare reform law, the Affordable Care Act, strengthens Medicare, offers eligible seniors a range of preventive services with no cost-sharing, and provides discounts on drugs --" So the reference to Obama is longer than it is to LBJ, who invented Medicare. And, by the way, that's nothing to write home about. Wanting credit for inventing Medicare is not a good thing.
Here's another insertion: "On August 14, 1935, President Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act. Today the Obama Administration continues to protect seniors and ensure," they are protected by Social Security by cutting the payroll tax for employees, which is the only funding source for Social Security. So Obama is inserting himself in all of these places. I know it's beyond shame, but he does it for every president. We'll find George W. Bush. I don't have it right in front of me. I've got the pictures that the RNC doctored up. Obama with George Washington crossing the Delaware. Obama was there. He's in the boat. I mean the pictures are fabulous and everybody is having fun laughing at it.
So people are now laughing at the president of the United States because of what he's doing and because of what he's saying, and our old buddy Bob Beckel is warning Obama not to feed the beast. People think that he's arrogant. (interruption) "Amateur", the book? Well, I don't know. Snerdley's asking me if I think the stuff in the book, "The Amateur", is starting -- (interruption) what do you mean, all gel together? Hm-hm. Hm-hm. Well, I don't know if the image of Obama is turning with the mass of the public yet. According to the polling data, he's still remarkably loved. Liked. Popularity is in the sixties, his personal popularity. His job approval below 50, at 45.
RUSH: I didn't finish my thought here on Elizabeth "Low Cheekbones" Warren. I wanted to close the circle on this. She has inserted herself into the Cherokee tribe just on the basis of something her mother or grandmother told her, but it's no different than Obama inserting himself in these presidential biographies. It's the same exact thing. You know why Elizabeth Warren should be admitted to the Cherokee tribe? Because they don't have any non-Cherokee members, that's why. (laughing) Why should they allow women into Augusta National? Because they don't have any. Well, isn't that the liberal way of doing things?
The Cherokees are discriminating. They ought to let Elizabeth Warren in because they don't have any non-Cherokees. It's gonna be affirmative action for the cheekbone-challenged. Let her in there. She wants to be in the tribe. The tribe doesn't have any non-Cherokees. Who are they to say she can't join? Just say you're eligible to vote, just say you're a minority, just say you're one of the four greatest presidents in American history. Just lie about it. That's liberalism. She's just acting to type. What's strange here?
RUSH: You want to hear the Obama insertion into the George W. Bush biography? Here you go: "In 2002, President George W. Bush’s State of the Union was the first to be live broadcast on the Internet. In 2011 and 2012, President Obama’s State of the Union speeches were available in an enhanced live stream version that featured infographics, charts and data side-by-side in real time with the President’s speech." That's Obama inserting himself into the White House biography of George W. Bush.
Here is Obama's insertion into Jimmy Carter: "In 1977, President Jimmy Carter created the Department of Energy; today the DOE works with the Obama Administration to drive towards innovation in energy and reducing reliance on foreign oil with an 'all of the above' approach," which actually is very modest because Obama coulda just said that his administration is the second term of Jimmy Carter. But they wanted to rein it in. They didn't want to brag. Carter creates the DOE, but Obama is the guy making it sing. George W. Bush, first State of the Union live broadcast on the Internet. Obama did it better ten years later. This is the kind of stuff.
Here's the insertion for George H. W. Bush: "President Barack Obama awarded George H.W. Bush the 2010 Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, for his commitment to service and ability to inspire volunteerism throughout the country, encouraging citizens to be 'a thousand points of light.' The administration continues to promote service and civic engagement, honoring heroes of local communities as 'Champions of Change' and fostering civic participation." I mean it literally is ego out of control.
