It took just six months for the number of those signed up for President Obama’s student debt forgiveness program to rise from under a million to 1.5 million.
RUSH: I was a lone wolf January 16th, 2009: I hope he fails. I caught hell, I caught grief, even though everybody knew what I meant. And now the pieces are rolling in on how he is a failure. Now, to be honest, some of these people are saying he's a failure at being a president. I don't think he is. I think he's doing exactly what he wants to do.
RUSH: To give you a little illustration, a mindless little story I found today in the middle of show prep, and it's really mindless. "Marlo Thomas Silences Power Lunch Crowd at Michael’s." Now you might be thinking what in the name of Sam Hill does that have to do with income inequality? I'll tell you what it has to do with it...
RUSH: If you want to invest in a guy, invest in you. Don't invest in a Barack Obama. Don't invest in a me. Invest in yourself. That's what America allows you to do. America allows you to love yourself. America allows you to think you're the greatest thing on earth. America allows you to have confidence and bravado. America allows you the opportunity to put what you think is best on trial and see if it flies.
RUSH: I don't deny that there are small-minded neophytes who live in a world of utter distortion and liars who try to take things that I don't say and repackage them and make it look like I am anti-woman. Look at what your solution to that was, "Just don't talk about it." I'm sorry, I'm never going to do that. I'm not going to let them shut me up.
RUSH: It's ridiculous to study the one percent. They are not the same people year in, year out. Yet you listen to the Democrat Party talk about them and they are this collective group of evil people, they belong to this club and that club. It's time we got our arms around all this and realize that we live in the greatest place on earth where the greatest things possible still are and that's what we have to strive to save and remind everybody younger than we are that it is indeed possible.
RUSH: I once had a guy ask me what level of risk he thought I was taking in my career. And I said, "I don't think much." And he looked at me and his eyes bugged out.
CALLER: He is five years old. My wife and I are raising him with our daughter. He was born with auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder. So he kind of hears but it doesn't translate into anything. They explained it as hearing white noise. We had a cochlear implant done three years ago. And one of the most exciting days of my life was the day six weeks after the surgery when they turned it on.
RUSH: I got about four hours of sleep last night. I stayed up and actually lived a little bit rather than did what the doctors said... No, I didn't go out last night. I just had a night where I was conscious, essentially, and didn't get tired.
