RUSH: So, ladies and gentlemen, we are having a record-breaking cold snap in many parts of the country. And right on schedule the media have to come up with a way to make it sound like it's completely unprecedented. Because they've got to find a way to attach this to the global warming agenda, and they have. It's called the "polar vortex." The dreaded polar vortex.
RUSH: Last year, previous years, they would have come back in the game. They were gone. They lost a couple other people to hamstring and knee injuries. That's part of the game. Don't misunderstand. I'm not claiming it's unfair. But the concussion business, some of these guys would have been back, and it would have made a difference.
On ABC's Sunday show This Week, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul said that he's not against the concept of unemployment insurance, but he warned that long-term benefits could eventually provide some people a disincentive to work, which is inarguable -- or at least it should be. But by late Sunday afternoon, Democrats were trying to make his comment into a full-blown scandal.
RUSH: I had no idea Luntz was trying to persuade people. I thought what Luntz was doing was focus groups and learning what people thought about things and going on TV with it. I didn't know that Luntz was trying to win anything. I didn't know Luntz was trying to come up with slogans to help beat Obama.
RUSH: Ah, yeah, you can just see it. The Drive-Bys are just ecstatic, so happy to have Obama back home, back in Washington, back from Hawaii. Now they can resume the soap opera, put him as the lead character of the Washington soap opera back on the air. And, of course, income inequality and unemployment extension benefits happen to be the two plot lines of the soap opera today. And they will be for as long as it takes to make people forget the misery of Obamacare and the misery of Obamanomics.
RUSH: She realized halfway through it that she wasn't supposed to say, "Oh, yeah, I've been through that." It's not supposed to have ever been this cold before... She blew the whole premise by acknowledging that this isn't anything unusual.
RUSH: My point here is that a concussion is a medical thing. It is a real thing. It's a medical thing. It's defined in specific ways, and it's treated in specific ways, and it's now become political. Because the left has gotten hold of it, the concussion is becoming a political thing.
RUSH: The United States is the ultimate rescuer of these people because the ChiCom rescuers got stuck, and the New Zealand or Australia, whoever, the other ones got stuck, and it took the United States Coast Guard to go down there and get them. And that's gotta be embarrassing because it portrays us as the superpower. And that flies in the face of the Obama agenda.
RUSH: So what's Obamacare gonna be like in three to five years? It's easy...
RUSH: What a guy. So Obama did give his wife permission to stay in Hawaii as a present.
