Obama Running Out the Clock on Benghazi, Fast & Furious


RUSH: Roy in Cordelia, California.  Hi.

CALLER:  Hello, Rush.  It's an honor to speak with you this morning.

RUSH:  Thank you.

CALLER:  I'd like to start by saying first I would love nothing better in my life than to sit down and buy you a fine steak and a fine cigar.

RUSH:  Well, and I would take it.

CALLER:  I'd be happy to pay for it.

RUSH:  Thank you very much.  I appreciate that.  I'm doing better here on receiving.

CALLER:  A couple things.  Number one, the way that the liberals have played -- let's just isolate the second half of this year -- by stonewalling on Fast and Furious, stonewalling on Benghazi until after the election I think has served two purposes.  Most obvious, of course, is it didn't come out before the election.  But second of all, it has pushed everything into this last the week session of this lame duck Congress that's going on.  And it just has scattered everything from hell to breakfast. 

RUSH:  I like that.

CALLER:  I'm in full agreement with you about Obama wanting to go over the cliff.  I think it fits right in with his agenda.

RUSH:  Exactly right.  I'm glad you see that.

CALLER:  My question is, what do you think is gonna be the outcome of this after the beginning of the year?

RUSH:  Well, the outcome, the first four years multiplied.  That's what's on tap.  That's what the election was about, as far as I'm concerned.  More of the same.  Now, to your point.  Fast and Furious, Benghazi, all this stuff crammed into the remaining days.  He's got a point about this, folks.  We're trying to get to the bottom of Benghazi in a week or two.  We're trying to solve the fiscal cliff process, and we got ten days left on that.  Ain't no way.  Not gonna happen.  And the reason is, the regime knows that once we get to next year, get through the Christmas break, get to the Obama immaculation, the theory is the Republicans will just have grown tired of trying to get to the bottom of Benghazi and that will be it. 

There won't be any further investigation.  The theory that the Democrats have is that the Republicans will really that the country doesn't want that. The country doesn't want to waste time getting to the bottom of Benghazi. They didn't care before the election, they don't care now. So Obama can throw Susan Rice up there as a distraction and keep everybody from getting to the real question, which is where the hell was he?  That's the real question.  The only question about Benghazi, because everybody knew at the time it was happening what was happening.  They couldn't find Obama.  Or it appears that way.  There was no official reaction at the time.  We're talking about Susan Rice, why'd she go saying what she said and so forth, stonewalling her attempt to get the secretary of state and all this kind of stuff. It's clearly a stonewall just to get to the end of the year with nothing learned and nothing resolved. 

But you said, "What's down the road?"  We're down the road.  That's my whole point. Twenty-five years ago this program was largely about warning people what was on tap if liberalism wasn't stopped.  Well, we're there.  It's no longer theoretical what's gonna happen if liberalism is unchecked and is in power.  We're in the middle of it now.  It is the reality.  It's no longer a theory.  So when you say what's gonna happen down the road, we're on the road.  We are down the road.  And there's nothing on this road in the last four years that suggests anything different is gonna happen in the next four.  There's nothing that says there's a new road.  There's nothing that says there's a new route.  I don't even see any stop signs on the road.
