RUSH: It's amazing how everybody behaves according to the script. It's amazing how the formula, once put into place, seems to be followed precisely.
RUSH: That's the Democrat strategy. Shut down the government. Get the Republicans to shut down the government. That's what they tried with impeachment. They were trying to goad the Republicans into actually getting the ball moving on impeaching Obama. That didn't work. So now that's the strategy.
RUSH: We can't turn this around in one election or even two... I think that focus on winning the midterms in 2014 and who the nominee is gonna be in 2016 is way shortsighted. The Democrats are trying to win the game... The Republicans are trying to get a first down.
RUSH: As usual, my friends, I am required to read the stitches between the fastball here. Why did I choose this sound bite? What is it about this sound bite that's so urgent that I wanted you to hear it? Well, right here it is. "Most people, Sandra, believe the recession has permanently damaged this economy." Who do most people blame for the recession? That would be George W. Bush.
RUSH: Imagine if you were listening in the first hour, "Rush, you're painting a very hopeless case." No, not at all. My point here is there's a counter to all of this. There is a way out of all this, but it's not just winning an election. I'm not trying to diminish the importance of winning the election, but I do want to keep it in perspective... There is an army of American people waiting to be used, waiting to be mobilized, waiting to be put into some kind of political motion. We have not lost the majority of this country. If we had, there wouldn't be any talk of the Democrats losing as big as they're gonna lose in November,
RUSH: Polls are not used to reflect public opinion anymore. They are used to shape it. And that is a huge difference, huge.
RUSH: The answer is what it's always been, and it's easy to say. In fact, it's too easy to say. It's so easy to say that it can be dismissed just as easily.
RUSH: The immigration system isn't "broken." The way it is being implemented and managed is what's broken. The immigration laws we have are fine. The problem is they're being ignored on purpose.
RUSH: This is inexcusable, for this kind of assumption to be made. This is just... It's so unnecessary, and it's pessimistic thinking.
RUSH: Concussions. I warned everybody, started a public interest group, Keep Our Own Kids Safe. We have PSAs and everything.
