RUSH: How would you like being on a commercial jet and all of a sudden it’s time for the instructions to tell you what to do as the plane’s taxiing out for takeoff to your destination, and you hear this.
HILLARY: In a few minutes, I am going to switch off the ‘fasten your seat belt sign.’ However, I’ve learned lately that things can get awfully bumpy when you least expect it — so you might want to keep those seat belts fastened. And in the event of an unexpected drop in poll numbers, this plane will be diverted to New Hampshire. If you look out from the right, you will see an America saddled with tax cuts for the wealthiest and a war without end. If you look out from the left, you will see an America with a strong middle class at home and a strong reputation in the world. Once we’ve reached cruising altitude, we’ll be offering in-flight entertainment: My stump speech in its many variations. Once again, thank you for joining us on Hil Force One. We know you have choices when you fly, and so we are grateful that you chose the plane with the most experienced candidate.
RUSH: Hillary Clinton pretending to be a flight attendant yesterday on board her campaign charter from I think that was Las Vegas to Reno. I tell you, if you got on an airplane and you hear that, you’re definitely not flying the friendly skies of United. Quite the opposite. Karl Rove yesterday in Washington spoke to the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting on how to beat Hillary and Obama. We have one, two, three sound bites, the first of three here.
ROVE: Democrats, independents, and Republicans have real questions about his accomplishments as a first-term Senator and whether he has the experience that equips him to be a commander-in-chief in a time of war. He was elected to the United States Senate three years ago. He spent almost the entire time running for president.
RUSH: He’s not talking about Hillary there, he’s talking about Obama, actually describing how to beat both of them. Here’s the second of three.
ROVE: Senator Clinton. She claims to have fiscal responsibility. She talks about the need to be fiscally responsible, and yet if you look at it, she’s already proposed $800 billion in new spending and the campaign is less than half over. How can you claim to be fiscally responsible and want to increase the federal budget by $800 billion in four short years?
RUSH: And here’s a See, I Told You So from Karl Rove, and by the way, he’s made this point on this program before.
ROVE: She’s running against nobody, and nobody gets 40% of the vote. The other 5% of the vote went for three other people, 27,924 votes went for the guy who believes in UFOs, the guy who dropped out, and the guy who last held public office somewhere around 1855. That’s a pretty remarkable testament to the deep concerns the Democrats have about Senator Clinton, when she can’t barely beat nobody else.
RUSH: That’s the Michigan primary, there were no delegates awarded, so other candidates — Mike Gravel was on the ballot, Dennis Kucinich is the UFO guy, but that’s a pretty good line. She’s running against nobody and gets 40% of the vote.
