RUSH: This cannot be allowed to result in a distrust of America and its founding principles, and believe me, there are all kinds of people that want to take advantage of a poll like this. "Trust in Government at All-Time Low." They say, "Well, see, America is just not made for life in 2014. America needs to change."
RUSH: I have been discussing the need to teach, particularly young people, that everything is politics. You know, these young people, not even young people, just people that say, "I hate politics. I don't like the arguing. Why can't we all just get along? I hate politics." These are especially the people we need to get to because everything is political.
RUSH: Apparently, the viewing audience went nuts, blew their gaskets, started melting the phone lines at ABC, sending in tweets and e-mails and texts demanding to get Obama off the screen and put Kate Upton back on.
RUSH: October 2002, Barack Obama, B. Hussein O., makes a speech, accuses George W. Bush of wanting to invade Iraq to distract us from a bad economy... Would it be too cynical to suggest that Obama might be bombing Iraq to distract us from his numerous problems?
RUSH: The Drive-Bys, man, they're so upset. It might not look good to go on vacation. Poor Obama. The damn Yazidis or whatever they are in Iraq, they're screwing up Martha's Vineyard. It's amazing, poor Obama, he's just trying so hard but he may not be able to go on vacation because of this, and if he does, it may not look good.
RUSH: This is guaranteed to tick off the low-information voters and probably some on the left. But I would go so far as to say, in addition to saying that politics is not how we solve our problems, victory in politics is how we solve them. I would go further. Our problem is not that there is too much conflict in Washington. Our problem is there isn't enough.
RUSH: There is a huge business, I call it the race industry, and it's popularized and run by people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. And it's how they make their living.
RUSH: The presumption that everybody's offended by Ole Miss, the presumption that everybody's bothered and offended by the Redskins name is what animates the whole movement to change the name, because it lives on an assumption, which is false, that everybody's offended by it. And this, in fact, is one of the things that really bugs me is these damn leftists presuming to speak for everybody. These damn liberals assuming everybody agrees with them or, even if they don't, trying to make it look like everybody does. And if you don't, you're an oddball, kook, extremist right winger or what have you.
CALLER: We have a Motor City Comic-Con in the Detroit area, and I got to interview William Shatner... I thought I'd ask him about his talk show, Raw Nerve, and I asked him who his favorite all-time guest was, and then I had a follow-up question of what was the best answer he got to a question from a guest. And he said his favorite guest of all time was you.
