NFL Game Delayed by Rain Again
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, it is raining here where we are. I mean, it is raining out there, and it's raining really hard. As a result, this program will be delayed until the rain ends and I feel safe coming in here to once again execute broadcast excellence. No, I melt if I get wet.

So while Obama's up there celebrating his great economic recovery policies, in the real world, only 12% of the people of this country think Obamacare's gonna do them any good.
