RUSH: I'm gonna check your memory on something here -- 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. Remember when Kerry was doing -- might have been a commencement speech? He did a commencement speech or he was talking to the kids somewhere and I think it was either in Northern California or Seattle, maybe Oregon, and he told them that people that don't do well in school end up in Iraq.
You remember that now? (interruption) Well, I guess Kerry didn't do well enough in school, because he's ending up in Iraq. Obama is sending him. We'll find that. I remember it like it was yesterday.
RUSH: He's also gonna send John Kerry in, which means to me that John Kerry didn't go to school. And here is why I say that. October 30th, 2006, Pasadena City College, Democrat rally for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides.
KERRY: You know, education, if you make the most of it and you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq.
RUSH: And which is exactly where Kerry is going, gonna get stuck in Iraq, which means he didn't go to school. That would also be on Rush the TV Show. All these sound bites would be on Rush the TV Show, and we'd be laughing ourselves silly, the audience, we'd have a great time. And it would be the only place you'd see it. We have more Kerry? What did I do with it? I had it here. Here we go. Here's Kerry. The other day he said we would welcome, we're gonna work with Iran. He says he didn't say it. Today Show, Savannah Guthrie, "You've mentioned that the US is open to at least possibly working with Iran as you deal with the situation with ISIS in northern Iraq."
KERRY: First of all, I don't know where this comes from, that we've suggested working with Iran in that regard. We have heard --
GUTHRIE: I thought you said it in an interview the other day.
KERRY: What I said is, we are interested in communicating with Iran to make clear that the Iranians know what we're thinking and we know what they're thinking and that there's a sharing of information so people aren't making mistakes.
GUTHRIE: Just to be clear, the US isn't considering working hand in hand with Iran? 'Cause I think for a lot of Americans that's a head scratcher.
KERRY: Let me be absolutely clear. It's not. It would be a head scratcher, and no, we're not sitting around contemplating how we're gonna do that, or if we're gonna do that.
RUSH: Okay, so Lurch says, "First of all, I don't know where this comes from that we've suggested working with Iran in that regard." "Well, I thought you said it in an interview the other day." "What I said is we're interested in communicating with Iran to make clear that --" blah, blah. Here is what he said.
KERRY: I wouldn't rule out anything that would be constructive. Let's see what Iran might or might not be willing to do before we start making any pronouncements. I think we are open to any constructive process here that could minimize the violence, hold Iraq together, the integrity of the country, and eliminate the presence of outside terrorist forces that are ripping it apart.
RUSH: Now, the question he's answering there, it was asked by Katie Couric. She said, "Can you see the US cooperating with Iran militarily?" He said, "I wouldn't rule out anything that would be constructive. Let's see what Iran might or might not be willing to do. I think we're open to any constructive process." So, Savannah Guthrie, "You've mentioned that the US is open to at least possibly working with Iran?"
"I didn't say that. I don't know where this comes from. We are interested in communicating with Iran to make clear that the Iranians know what we're thinking." Caught red-handed, denying it again, now stuck in Iraq.
Oh, isn't this fascinating. Another thing, folks. See, I Told You So. "Newly released documents show prosecutors are alleging Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of a nationwide 'criminal scheme' to illegally coordinate with outside conservative groups."
This is an AP story. He is clearly their new target now. He's on the cover of the New Republic as a racist because he supports voter ID. And now prosecutors are alleging Scott Walker, the center of a nationwide criminal scheme to illegally coordinate with outside conservative groups. What is illegal about that? They are really coming for us here, folks. They're not even making any bones about it.
