Obama Didn't Want to be Seen with Tiger Woods, Rich One-Percenter

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We got the sound bites coming up. The Drive-Bys have told us why Obama did not want the photo-op with Tiger, and it had nothing to do with the busload of women that I saw on I-95 who might have been headed that way. I don't know, probably not, but it had nothing to do with Tiger's social life or embarrassment over that. It's that Tiger's in the 1%. Tiger's rich. Obama didn't want a photo-op. This is what the Drive-Bys are saying: Obama didn't want a photo-op with Tiger 'cause Tiger's in the 1%!

Tiger's rich, and Tiger agreed with Phil Mickelson when Mickelson said he was gonna have to leave California because his taxes were too high. I know Obama's in the 1%, but he doesn't act like it and... Well, I take it back. He does act it. He lives like the 1% but he's not held accountable for being in the 1%. He's fighting the 1%! You gotta get your head on right. He's not the 1%. He's fighting the 1%! If Obama was in the 1%, he would exit the 1%. He's one of the one-percenters but he can't help it, as far as the low-information voter is concerned.

So that's why they didn't want any photo-ops.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here is the sound bite.

REIHAN SALAM: There's another angle here. If Tiger Woods were not a part of this, what would this weekend have been? It would be a weekend of President Obama with his friends. And, lo and behold, a lot of those friends are millionaire Democratic donors. I'm disappointed that the press corps does not pay attention when a figure like a Tiger Woods is not involved. Look at who the president is spending his time with. When you climb to the top of that greasy pole of politics, the people you wind up spending time with tend to be donors.

BURNETT: What an amazing image for a guys weekend.

REIHAN SALAM: I think that's something the press corps ought to know about. I think we ought to report about it.

RUSH: Yeah, okay, so the weekend was with the top 1%. Now, Obama, as far as his supporters are concerned, he not really a one-percenter. He is behind enemy lines. He has infiltrated the one-percenters. He's doing research. He's finding out who they are and how they think so he can shaft 'em. Obama is a spy, in other words. He not a real one-percenter -- and if Obama could, he'd give all his money away! He's be the greatest liberal all. He's donate it! But he can't 'cause he's president and he's gotta infiltrate. So he's behind enemy lines. How about this description of Obama's weekend: "When you climb to the top of that greasy pole of politics, the people you wind up spending time with tend to be donors"? It was Erin Burnett's show, and she said, "What an amazing image for a guy's weekend." Well, guys weekend with Obama and Tiger, the greasy pole of politics, climbing to the top, slithering up there?

It works for me.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Now, folks, one more sound bite on this business that Obama did not want a photo-op with Tiger Woods because Obama doesn't want to rub people's noses in it, the wealth of the people that he hangs with.  Tiger is a one-percenter.  The fear of the photo-op had nothing to do with the fact that Tiger's had a whole bunch of different girlfriends and they might be doing that. It had nothing to do with people thinking that.  It was all about the fact that Tiger's rich, got a lot of money, and people thinking Obama's not gonna do himself well if he's spotted in photos with all these rich people. 

Erin Burnett OutFront last night, former Obama Administration Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense.  Man, I need breath control to just get that title out.  Former Obama Administration Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Rosa Brooks, and during a discussion about Obama's golf outing with Tiger and the lack of a photo-op, Erin Burnett talked to Rosa Brooks.

BURNETT:  Rosa, is he embarrassed about his 1% world? 

BROOKS:  I think that's absolutely right.  I think that we should be reporting on the sickening influence of money in politics, but I also think that is, unfortunately, the world we live in.  If you are a successful national level politician, you can't afford to hang out with people who aren't gonna give you money, and our Supreme Court has helped make that possible, has helped make that the situation we're in right now.

RUSH:  See?  See?  And Obama, he can't help it. He can't help hanging out with rich people. You know why?  Because in politics today you have to hang around people who are gonna give you money.  Donations.  You have to.  That's the second job is raising money.  In fact, it might be the first job is raising money.  So you have to hang out with people that are gonna give you money.

(interruption)

What do you mean he's not running again, Snerdley?  He's still running his campaign.  Haven't you noticed?  Haven't you been listening?  He's still got his campaign websites. He's still running campaign ads.  I'm serious.  They're still raising money for his campaign.  And who knows, they might be raising money for his social justice library that's gonna be on the shores of Hawaii somewhere.  I don't know. 

Here's the thing.  If you are a successful national level politician, and Obama claims to be that, then you can't afford to hang around with people who aren't gonna give you money.  Meaning, you can't hang around with average people.  You can't afford to.  You must hang around with the wealthy.  But you don't want pictures of it, because that just rams it down the throats of the middle class that you actually aren't one of them and that you don't want to be one of them, and that you don't want to hang out with them.  She actually said it.  You can't afford to hang out with people who are not going to give you money.

I'm gonna tell you, just for me personally, that is the last consideration for me.  I don't want to hang around with people who want money from me.  And I certainly don't want to hang out with people from whom I would ask for money, 'cause I don't.  That's one of the reasons why I would never run for office.  I could not put my hand out and say, "Please give me some," 'cause I'd have to repay it somehow, and you lose yourself when you do that.  Anyway, so that's why.  It had nothing to do with Tiger and his social life.  I think it's safe to say, folks, that Obama's now spent more time with Tiger Woods than he has with the Republican leadership.

By the way, Obama, as far as low-information voters are concerned, he's not really rich. He's not really a one-percenter.  He has no choice, he's president. He has to fly Air Force One and the helicopter. He has to throw the parties. He's just behind enemy lines. He's studying these people to learn how to screw 'em.  That's what Obama voters think.

RUSH:  This is Kate in Carson City, Nevada.  It's great to have you on the program.  Hi.

CALLER:  Hello, Rush.  How are you doing, dear?

RUSH:  Very well.  Thank you.

CALLER:  Okay.  I'm Kate from Fairfield, by the way.

RUSH:  Oh.

CALLER:  Yeah, oh!

RUSH:  It's like, "Oh.  Okay."

CALLER:  Oh, yeah.  Okay.  Listen, I just wanted to say as a 26-year-student of yours I listen very carefully to sound bites, and that former deputy, whatever, chick she was, talking about Obama having to play golf with Tiger. If you noticed she blamed the Supreme Court for him having to play golf.  The Supreme Court has now made it a reality that you have to go where the money is.

RUSH:  Well --

CALLER:  They've been going with the money is forever, but I just laughed when I heard at the very tail end, she said, you know, something about the Supreme Court --

RUSH:  Yeah, yeah, I have a mental block on the name of the decision.  Dave Bossie's group, Citizens United, which allows corporations to make donations to political candidates.  The left hates that.  Look, Kate, I want you to hang on here because we've gotta take a break here, and I want to play that sound bite so people know what it is that you're talking about. 

So don't go away, folks.

RUSH: We rejoin Kate in Carson City, Nevada. She's one of my favorite callers from the days at KFBK Sacramento back when I first started this show. She was a semi- regular then, and a big Charles Manson fan. You lived near him in Fairfield, right?

CALLER: (giggling) Fairfield, California, yeah. Yeah.

RUSH: Yeah. No, she's not a Charles Manson fan. It's just he was in prison there for a while.

CALLER: Yeah, Vacaville. He was. Yeah. He was at Vacaville. (giggling)

RUSH: Right. Vacaville.

CALLER: He was at the medical facility there in Vacaville.

RUSH: Okay. Now, she references this sound bite we played in the first hour of Rosa Brooks, who is the Obama administration deputy assistant secretary of defense. She's on with Erin Burnett last night on Erin Burnett OutFront, and they're talking about why Obama did not want a photo-op with Tiger Woods, and you've gotta... If you missed this the first time, listen to this again.

BURNETT: Rosa, is he embarrassed about his 1% world?

BROOKS: I think that's absolutely right. I think that we should be reporting on the sickening influence of money in politics, but I also think that is, unfortunately, the world we live in. If you are a successful national level politician, you can't afford to hang out with people who aren't gonna give you money, and our Supreme Court has helped make that possible, has helped make that the situation we're in right now.

RUSH: So what Kate's pointing out here is this woman is saying that the Supreme Court made Obama invite Tiger Woods golfing.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: Because of that Citizens United case, which opened up donations from corporations -- which are not people! Corporations are evil aliens, monsters, whatever, and they shouldn't be allowed to donate money. But now they can, and that's so unfair to Democrats because everybody knows Democrats hate corporations and corporations hate Obama, blah, blah. So the Supreme Court made Obama invite Tiger because, as she said here, since that decision, "If you are a successful national level politician, you can't afford to hang out with people who aren't gonna give you money..." To put it another way, you can't hang out with average people. You don't have time to hang out with people who don't have any money to give you because of the Supreme Court. It's absurd. It is, again... I don't know. I think all this stuff is just insulting and defamatory.

CALLER: It absolutely is, Rush, and, you know, they've been hanging out with money for 50 years. I mean, this is so ridiculous, and to make that claim. They blame the Supreme Court. Why? Because there's a conservative majority on the Supreme Court. If there wasn't, they wouldn't say a thing about it. But there is, and so they have to bring that up because that's another leg that they have to take care of with regards to Obama and his Supreme Court appointments.

RUSH: Right.

CALLER: Because they want to see that court turned.

RUSH: That's exactly right. By the way, we looked it up and according to FEC records Tiger Woods hasn't donated a dime to anybody in politics. We can't find a single Tiger Woods political donation.

CALLER: I'm sure before that decision Obama was still hanging around money. Can we say George Soros?

RUSH: Oh, of course! He hangs around with money. Obama's a groupie when it comes to celebrities. He is the Celebrity of the United States.

CALLER: Exactly.

RUSH: He loves hanging around celebrities. The idea that he's being forced into this is absurd.

CALLER: Absolutely absurd. That's why I just had to call because it was so absurd, I just couldn't stand it. Being your student for so many years, I just had to say something.

RUSH: Well, I'm glad you called. It's always a pleasure to hear from you. How are things going with you? Are you okay?

CALLER: Very well. Things are going very well.

RUSH: Do you need an iPad? Do you need an iPad? You want a Retina MacBook Pro? What do you need? You want an iPhone 5?

CALLER: Oh, Rush, dear, save your generosity for other people. I don't need any of your (garbled).

RUSH: No, I only give stuff away to the rich.

CALLER: (burst out laughing)

RUSH: I can't afford to give stuff away to people that don't have anything.

CALLER: Oh, well, one of the kids would love an iPhone 5. That's true.

RUSH: Well, then I'll send you one. Now, it's unlocked. It's meant to be used in AT&T.

CALLER: We have AT&T, yeah.

RUSH: Okay, if you want to use it with T Mobile, you can. It does not have a SIM card. It's unlocked, so you have to take it to a store and make your deal. It doesn't come tied to a contract yet.

CALLER: Oh, my. Okay.

RUSH: You take it to an AT&T store and make whatever deal you want. They'll put a SIM card in it with the number that you want and we'll get it out you want a white one or black one?

CALLER: A black one. They're all boys. (giggling) Yeah, black one.

RUSH: Okay.

CALLER: Well, thank you. I certainly didn't expect that, and it's so wonderful to talk to you.

RUSH: Well, that's what makes it fun, and I know that you're rich and you could get one on your own anyway.

CALLER: (giggling) Yeah.

RUSH: Kate, now, hang on and don't hang up, because Mr. Snerdley needs to get your address. You'll have it tomorrow. We're gonna text it out this afternoon so you'll have it tomorrow.

CALLER: Okay. (giggling) Thank you very much.

RUSH: I know that FedEx goes to Carson City so you'll have it tomorrow. How many boys do you have?

CALLER: Well, I have seven sons and one daughter, you know. Eight children. Four of them are total Rush babies, and the other four --

RUSH: What's the age range?

CALLER: Thirty-five down to 12.

RUSH: Thirty-five down to down to 12. You know what? I'm gonna throw in a couple of iPads so that --

CALLER: My goodness.

RUSH: -- there's not any anger, animosity. Yeah, so throw in a couple iPads, and I'll throw a white one in there in case the girl wants one.

CALLER: The daughter. She would love one, yeah.

RUSH: Okay. Well, you sit tight for Snerdley. He'll get your address. As I say, it's always great to hear from you. Okay. I think, folks, how absurd is this? The Supreme Court, yeah. Obama and all national politicians, except Republicans, of course, they don't have time to hang around people that don't have a lot of money, which means they only can hang around with people who have money that they can ask to give them some.
