RUSH: I have seen and read a lot of commentary from people who also saw it and who think that it was really odd to have the president laughing about something that could be something very serious; he's being sued... I think he is livid and offended and outraged by it and is mocking the people who are critical. That laughter is not laughing at the situation. I think he's mocking everybody. I think privately he's just ticked off.

RUSH: I don't think this is that complicated. But there's just some people that, no matter what happens, no matter, and you know this as well as I do, no matter what, they're just never gonna believe that any president of the United States of America would intentionally do things that would harm the country. People in this country have a reverence for the office. The office holder is the automatic recipient of a lot of goodwill.
RUSH: Nobody knows who's doing what. Nobody knows if somebody's insured. Nobody can guarantee somebody's gonna get reimbursed or paid. And even when they haven't been paid the records say they have. What are the doctors to do but opt out eventually.
RUSH: When is the last time you heard Putin or any Soviet Russian leader speak up for Israel?
RUSH: "Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council." You think you could do that?
RUSH: There are certain broadcast engineers who take advantage of my inability to recognize all music and bring some of their favorites in from home now and then and try to sneak it by me.
RUSH: I'm just genetically opposed to dependence on government for personal stuff. But what are you gonna do? If you've got a student loan and the government runs it you've got no choice but to have the government involved in it.
