Margaret Hughes, California resident, opened a recent water bill, $210. The fine: almost $800. Unknown to her, the vacant house that she inherited in Santa Cruz had a leaky toilet. So Ms. Hughes had to drive the four hours to attend a water re-education school set up by the city.

RUSH: Now the world is on fire and the truly incompetent, totally clueless, egghead, stupid theoreticians from the faculty lounge are finally in charge -- and, voila! Look where we are. Barack Hussein Obama -- B. Hussein O. -- just said that the bombing of Iraq "is more and more looking like a long-term project." B. Hussein O., who was elected to see to it that this never happened again because this was never worth it in the first place, because this only happened because of incompetent, stupid idiots like Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and George W. Bush... If we only elected "the smart people," why, peace would break out!
RUSH: This man got elected promising to get every evidence of any American presence out of there, and he did. And when he did, he very proudly proclaimed it. And now he's blaming the Iraqis and Bush for what he did.
RUSH: This race -- whatever you want to call it in Ferguson, Missouri -- wasn't Obama supposed to mean that this kind of stuff was a thing of the past? Wasn't the election of Obama supposed to mean there wasn't gonna be any more of this?
RUSH: Can you imagine your typical New York Times reader, "Benghazi, what's Benghazi?" They're in Zabar's on Upper West Side, they got the New York Times, they read: "Fear of 'Another Benghazi' Drove White House to Airstrikes in Iraq." And all these libs in New York, "Benghazi, where is that? What is that?" They don't know about Benghazi. The New York Times never reported about Benghazi except as a phony Republican scandal. So a typical New York Times liberal reader in Manhattan says, "Wait a minute, fear of another Benghazi scandal --" and they're probably in Zabar's cursing Republicans for this today.
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, even Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington is calling it a "farce" that Obama is blaming bad intel for not knowing how big and bad ISIS had become in Iraq.
RUSH: It's in The Politico, that F. Chuck is gonna get the gig at the end of the year and that Gregory is out and that he's not gonna stay at NBC. He's gonna have to go somewhere else. He'll get hired. Failures in the news media, that's one of the biggest launching pads you can have to climb the ladder of success. Liberal media failure guarantees you a prominent new job, 'cause they can't afford shame or discredit to be showered upon the industry.
RUSH: I made the point, I asked the question, "What if it isn't Assad? What if the people creating mayhem in Syria are actually Assad's enemies disguising themselves as protesters of Assad and trying to make it appear as though he's doing this, when in fact he's not?"
RUSH: I checked the e-mail. "Rush, I just turned on. What are so you ticked about?" Look...
RUSH: Barack Obama cut his bones on thinking Iraq is worthless, meaningless, and has no value whatsoever to the United States... There's no evidence in the public record that Obama cares a whit about Iraq. I don't think he would care if it went under.
