RUSH: You know, Mrs. Clinton just continues to step in it. She didn't do anything recently. It's just another bit of news from the Ed Klein book, Blood Clot, has been revealed. Apparently Hillary was having lunch with some girlfriends up in Chappaqua one day after she had left the State Department. According to the Ed Klein book, all of Hillary's girlfriends were asking her, "What is Obama really like? " and she just launched.
According to the book, she said, "He's not there half the time. There's no hand on the tiller of this country. He's incompetent. He's a phony." She made it clear that she has no respect for Obama at all (this is in the Klein book) and she said that they made a deal with Obama that Bill would help Obama in 2012 if Obama would pay them back and help Hillary campaign in 2016.
Now Obama has basically said he's not gonna do that, and the Clintons feel betrayed, so she was just unloading on Obama. And this is gonna get out. I mean, I ran across it in the Ed Klein book and others will see it when it's run across. And the Clintons just can't pull their foot out of that bucket of excrement regarding their wealth, and people are now covering it.
I watched some liberals on TV today say, "You know, they need to stop acting embarrassed of their wealth. They've earned it. They deserve it. Why don't they learn how?" I'll answer the question. They're obsessed with this notion of trying to convince people that they're not wealthy because...
Look, I mean, if you're a leftist and your whole life has been spent beating up on the rich and trashing them and calling them names -- and you're accusing them of being heartless and cold and bigoted and racist and selfish and greedy -- and then all of a sudden you become one of them, and then added to that all of a sudden you act like you want to be one of 'em? Well, then you're gonna have to think you need to go out and tell people, "Well, I'm not like those other rich people!"
Which is where they're getting caught up. Now, let's see, this story: "Student Leaders Ask Hillary To Return 'Outrageous' $225,000 School Speaking Fee -- Two top student government leaders at the University of Las Vegas are requesting Hillary Clinton return the 'outrageous' $225,000 speaking fee she reportedly will receive for an upcoming speech at the school in October.
"In a video circulated by the national Republican Party Friday, Elias Benjelloun, the UNLV student body president, and Daniel Waqar, the student government's public relations director, slammed the university's foundation for paying Clinton so much for the event." All was fine until they found out what she makes. She gets $225,000 for a speech, and the students are making moves on getting the money back.
This stuff that's happening to the Clintons in the Drive-Bys are not things they're used to. They're used to being pampered, covered for, all the soft soap. They're not used to Diane Sawyer giving Mrs. Clinton grief over it. They're just not used to any of this. And now students asking for the money back? Remember, these liberals, they think they're better than everybody else anyway. That's what the Pew Center survey tells us. So these students want the 225 grand back and Mrs. Clinton says, "Who do they think they are? Deal!"
So it's not cool out there. It's not good.
