RUSH: Here's another story on Drudge I just found by Charlie Cook, the eminent -- you know -- political dean, pollster, analyst, political scientist inside the Beltway. "Voters Have Lost Hope with Obama." It's another in the increasingly long line of stories on how the Obama presidency has imploded and is over, all based on public opinion -- and these guys that live and die with polls and live and die with public opinion just don't get this.
The polls don't matter. Again, I apologize, ladies and gentlemen, if I sound like a broken record, but this administration is not over. It is just hitting its stride. This Regime is just getting going. These next 2-1/2 years are going to shock people. Obama doesn't face the electorate anymore. It doesn't matter what the electorate thinks, therefore. It doesn't matter.
Some of you might be shouting, "What about the Democrats, though, Rush? His party, they're gonna have to run." He doesn't care. He doesn't care. In fact, there's a part of me that believes Obama wouldn't mind having a Republican-led Senate to further blame his opponents for everything going wrong, and justifying why he's taking all these executive actions.
I mean, if the popular culture believes the Republicans are despicable and hateful and racist and sexist and homophobic and all that, and Obama is faced with a Congress made up totally of people like that, then he's gonna feel totally justified saying, "I don't need these guys. We can't wait for them. We don't need to let those guys stop us. We can't let those guys stop us! We got too much progress we gotta make here."
He'll then have popular support for ignoring Congress.
That's his thinking, I believe. The attempt will be to capitalize on the foul, dank image of Republicans that has been constructed out there. So, as far as Obama is concerned, the more the merrier. And if they happen to run the Senate as well as the House and are stopping him every time he wants to do something, he can point fingers of blame at them as public enemy number one and use that opposition to justify all this executive order and extra-constitutional stuff that he's gonna do.
So F. Chuck Todd and Charlie Cook, they can say, "Dire consequences now! Dire circumstances for Obama. He's lost public opinion." It doesn't matter. He doesn't face the public anymore.
RUSH: I was just looking at the Drudge page during the break, and the Drudge page is all-in on what's going on at the border, immigration. Here are some links, some headlines. "Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Obama's Dumping of Illegals is Intentional."
"Shock Photo: Illegals Sleep with Tinfoil Blankets." "Scabies, Chicken Pox Spread." "Hundreds Arrive by the Hour." Another link: "Claim: Homeland Paying for Illegals to Be Escorted into the USA." This is a story that alleges the Department of Homeland Security is actually paying for illegals to be escorted here. Not paying for them after they're here, but paying to escort them, drive them, whatever, into the country.
(interruption) Oh, no, it doesn't sound impossible to me at all. No, no. I don't mean to sound like I'm incredulous that it would be happening. I don't mean to sound incredulous at all. I'm trying to sound outraged. And then the lead headline at Drudge: "Open Borders Health Fears Spread." What this is about is that there's rampant disease being brought into the country, and a lot of people that are arriving are carrying infectious diseases, and they're already out of control.
RUSH: 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.
