RUSH: This is why I don't watch these shows anymore. It's why I watch very little cable news. It's so formulaic and it's utterly predictable.
RUSH: At no time when we started the EIB Network did anybody say that our purpose here is to create jobs in radio. We were trying to do a good show that attracted an audience so we could charge confiscatory advertising rates -- and that's where it stopped. Now, what's happened? Since that success, since the EIB Network's success, look at all the AM radio stations still on the air that probably wouldn't be. Look at all the conservative talk shows. There has been massive job creation.
RUSH: Over the weekend was the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. Now, I don't know why, but the Golden Gate Bridge fascinates me.
RUSH: We are being warned here by the Washington Post that we'd better be careful about how we go after Obama. We might anger the Obama base.
RUSH: I wonder how many people actually know what is really eating them? I wonder if they've dug deep enough to try to get their arms around, and get a handle on, what really is bothering them. What I mean is, everything seems out of kilter. This is just not the country we grew up in.
RUSH: The Obama campaign intends to portray Romney as, quote, "the most conservative nominee Republicans have had going back to Goldwater." I hope they do. This is Romney's big problem. He's not conservative enough for many on the Republican side of the aisle. So if Obama tries to tag this guy as Goldwater or Reagan, bring it on, that would be the best possible endorsement Romney could get. People don't fear Barry Goldwater anymore. People are not afraid of Barry Goldwater. They fear Obama.
RUSH: It is increasingly clear, folks, the Democrats think they're gonna lose, and it's been that way for a couple of weeks.
RUSH: Romney attempting outreach, goes into an inner city school to talk about his education ideas in West Philly and is basically told to get the hell out. "What are you doing here, pal? We don't want you here." It won't be long before we hear some civil rights leader saying, "They don't care about us, the Republicans, they don't care about us. They never reach out. They never try." So it's a damned if you do and damned if you don't situation.
RUSH: The next time you read about supposed problems here, let me just give you the real truth. The New York Times went from a $7 billion company to less than $1 billion in less than ten years. Now, if you want to know who's in trouble media-wise, it's newspapers and liberalism, folks.
RUSH: We got an e-mail from a man who won a prize on our most recent sweepstakes.
RUSH: What's in it for you to denigrate these people? They've done nothing but offer their lives in sacrifice for your freedom.
