The Jersey Shore is Still a Mess and Chris Christie is Still Praising Obama
RUSH: Six months after Hurricane Sandy, thousands of people are still homeless, looters are still raiding homes under repair, there is still chaos, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is saying that President Obama kept every promise he made after Hurricane Sandy. So those of you suffering, it must be your own fault.
RUSH: So six months after Hurricane Sandy thousands of people are still homeless; looters are still raiding homes under repair; people still don't have electricity; people's homes still haven't been rebuilt. And yet the governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, says that Obama kept every promise that he made. Kept every promise. So there's a lesson here. If you are a public official, governor, for example, and a weather disaster happens where you live, whatever you do, suck up to the nearest bunch of liberals you can find, and the media will love you, and whatever goes wrong will not be blamed on you. Just amazing.
Shocker: Boston Suspect Stopped Talking After Miranda Rights
RUSH: CNN is reporting that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is being quieter since he was Mirandized. No, really? You mean the suspect isn't saying anything since he was Mirandized? Who woulda thought? Anyway, that's a big news item on CNN. There will be panel discussions about it, Dzhokhar talking less since being Mirandized. What, was he supposed to start vomiting information once he was Mirandized? After he was told, "Anything you say could be used against you," he's supposed to start speaking? What am I missing here?

We Mirandized him and he's speaking less, and we're supposed to go, "Wow! That's big."
No, it makes perfect sense.
"Well, maybe to you."
Yeah. Why maybe to me?
"Well, you know, you understand this stuff. But the rest of us, that's just pretty cool news."

'I am bound by certain measures of confidentiality, but I would tell you that you are getting very warm,' Mr. Gowdy said when asked by Ms. Pemmaraju whether witnesses could be coming forward. '[The hearings] are coming sooner rather than later.'
"He said several questions need to be answered, such as why there was a failure of security, 'what happened during the siege itself and why aid was not sent,' and whether the testimony by Susan E. Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'grossly negligent or whether it was intentionally misleading.' ... 'Trust me when I tell you you will want to follow the hearings that are coming up,' he reiterated." Trey Gowdy to Fox News on Saturday afternoon.
