The idea that people should stand up to bullies, and conquer their own fears, has been around since bullies first walked the earth. Likewise, the idea that some people should “grow a pair.”
RUSH: Every other year the Boys and Girls Clubs of America work with friends of mine in putting on a charity golf tournament at the site of the US Open. They charge a significant amount of money to play in this, and that's how they raise the money, and a total of 88 people pony up the loot.
RUSH: He just found out! This is the Limbaugh Theorem on display once again. He's as mad as he can be. He just found out about this. Shinseki just today told him how bad it is -- and even at that, they don't really know. They've gotta do an investigation first. And if the investigation confirms what Obama was told, he's really gonna be mad. But he didn't know anything about it.
RUSH: This CNN info guy is somewhat speechless. Think of this next sound bite as a sound bite of a Drive-By reporter learning in real time who Obama is.
RUSH: This is Obama's "I'm madder than you are." This is Obama when he first learns about these things and how he does it, how he treats it, how he reacts to it, and how mad he is.... This montage, I got a note from a friend that said it ought to be on every cable news network and network evening newscast tonight. But it won't be. Our montage, our little montage, just exposes the phoniness, the contrived anger, the made-up outrage about all of this. It exposes it. There's a pattern here and how it all works.
RUSH: He doesn't have to ever go to a cabinet meeting. He doesn't ever have to talk to a cabinet secretary. He doesn't have to read the New York Times. He doesn't have to read the LA Times. He doesn't have to watch ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox. Just listen to this program for one hour (pick any hour), and he will know everything going on. He would never, ever be blindsided again like he is by this VA scandal.
RUSH: The social fabric, the cultural rot taking place in this country is again the result of policy put in place by Democrats. But with what? Good intentions, yes, we are only supposed to judge the good intentions. Social Security, Medicare, War on Poverty, you name it, all of 'em are disasters, and because of that, we're only supposed to look at the intentions... The truth that the VA, as constituted, can't be fixed because the government cannot run something like health care... All that's going to matter is the appearance of effort, rooted in caring to try to fix it.
RUSH: Even when I, ladies and gentlemen, am not here, I still remain the most talked about radio talk show host in the country.
RUSH: This is absolutely unreal. This is Twilight Zone stuff. (laughing) It's hilarious. What a bunch of boobs, totally worthless boobs. Boobs on a boar hog, we're talking about here.
RUSH: Jeff Zucker runs CNN. He used to run the Today Show, executive producer. He's infallible, untouchable. He wins awards for networks and shows that nobody ever sees or watches, and is untouchable. He's one of these people that no matter how well or poorly he does his job he's always gonna have his job.
RUSH: There's another story out there, folks, that I've been waiting for a long time, and it has finally hit, and I am somewhat shocked at how the mainstream media and the mainstream sports media is trying to ignore it.
