RUSH: Every day takes us one day closer. It's a quirk of the calendar. Every day we get closer to it. And I'm gonna tell you, I don't know what's gonna kill more people now -- assault weapons, global warming, or the sequester. If you listen to Obama and his minions in the news media, they're all running neck and neck.
RUSH: The idea is to get the public used to it. The idea is to get the idea in the public domain so that it is discussed, so that the idea is considered, so that they can then gin up support for it.

RUSH: On the Drudge Report, you have a big picture of Obama with his facial expression grimaced in pain, and the giant headline: "800,000 PENTAGON LAYOFFS," and that's exactly what Panetta wanted. There's your visual aid.
RUSH: I'm sure that she was just wishing them a happy Thanksgiving. I'm sure that that's all that was going on.
