RUSH: You know when George W. Bush spoke, just spoke, I don't care what he said, the media immediately cast him as a dunce, as an idiot. You recall this. Bush was an idiot. Reagan was an amiable dunce, he was an idiot. Bill Clinton, brilliant. Hillary Clinton, smartest woman in the world. Obama, so smart, I mean, we have no prayer of keeping up. Remember the Valerie Jarrett quotes that we found from, I think it was last week. "He's just bored by all of this." Valerie Jarrett says there hasn't been one time since she's known him that he's been intellectually challenged. He's just so far ahead of us. He's just light years beyond us. We wilt in the glow of the radiation of his brilliance. We can barely even look at it because we would blind ourselves, or some such thing.
And I, frankly, think it's a crock. I think it's all manufactured PR, and it's based on something that we've all known for a long time. If you learn how to speak and have a decent vocabulary, you can fool all kinds of people into thinking that you are refined, elegant, educated, urbane, all of these upper crust, elite descriptions. And they tell us this about a guy who says corpseman, secretary of states, attorney generals, 57 states, when he's campaigning. And there's another one here, ladies and gentlemen. Obama's out talking about his health care plan and how people want him to fail or want it to fail. I am living rent free in his head.
Anyway, Obama said, "That seems to be the only alternative that Obamacare's critics have, is, well, let's just go back to the status quo, because they sure haven't presented an alternative. If you ask many of the opponents of this law what exactly they'd do differently, their answer seems to be, well, let's go back to the way things used to be.
Yeah, you keep your plan. Now, my point, just like somebody really refined and educated, doesn't say "corpseman" unless he's trying to insult 'em, and it's secretaries of state, and attorneys general. But you cannot go back to the status quo. The status quo is what is. And here's Obama (imitating Obama), "Well, that seems to be the only alternative that they have, we'll just go back to the status quo." You can't go back. The status quo's what's happening now. Now, somebody whose intelligence would radiate with such intensity that we would be blinded looking at it, would not make these kinds of errors. I think we've been sold such a bill of goods on the guy from day one.
