Obama’s numbers are tanking, according to the latest Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll, and drive-by-media anchors are devastated. They’re struggling to hold back tears during their reports.

RUSH: This is key to everything the left does: good intentions. Their good intentions cover all of their failures. It doesn't matter if it's a domestic policy failure; it doesn't matter if it's a foreign policy failure; good intentions are how the left disguises and camouflages all of their failures. So keep some things in mind here, ladies and gentlemen, as this statement comes up.
RUSH: From the Wall Street Journal today: "Sunni Extremists in Iraq Occupy Hussein's Chemical Weapons Facility." Or try this one from the UK Telegraph: "Iraq Crisis: Isis Jihadists 'Seize Saddam Hussein's Chemical Weapons Stockpile.'" I must be dreaming here. I thought Saddam Hussein didn't have any chemical weapons, or any other weapons of mass destruction... If I have to ask Cookie to do this in order to prove this, I will, because we have them. We have sound bites of Bill Clinton in 1998 warning of Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, that it's eerie...Also from 1998 we have sound bites of every Democrat in Washington agreeing with Clinton that Saddam Hussein posed a terrific threat and precisely because of his weapons of mass destruction.
RUSH: If I was still doing a TV show, there would be two clips that we would be playing quite frequently on Rush the TV Show tonight if there was one. Obama said today that there's no military solution inside Iraq, and yet he's sending 300 military advisors to set up command centers and so forth. Well, excuse me. That's something that we would make fun of. It's exactly the kind of thing the media did to George Bush every day, and it's the exact kind of thing they won't do to Obama now.
RUSH: I'm at a loss to adequately express my incredulity. This is unacceptable. This is 10 times worse than anything Richard Nixon ever thought about doing, and that's all Nixon ever did was think about doing. He never did any of this. He thought about it, never did it. He salivated, he dreamed about doing it. These people did it.
RUSH: President Obama also said that he is going to send John Kerry to Iraq, which means to me that I guess Kerry didn't do well enough in school. You're probably scratching your head and saying, "What are you talking about, Rush?" Let me explain it...
CALLER: Being in the public eye, like you are, you have to be extremely careful with the words you use.
