RUSH: Mitt Romney on Hannity & Colmes last night has really, really upset Clinton, Inc. This is what he said about Hillary Clinton.
ROMNEY: She’s never run anything. She’s never had the occasion of being in the private sector, running a business — or, for that matter, running a state or city. She hasn’t run anything, and the government of the United States is not a place for a president to be an intern.
RUSH: ‘The government is not a place for the president to be an intern.’ That’s the word that has upset Clinton, Inc. ‘Intern’ is now a dirty word. (Thank you, Bill Clinton.) This morning on MSNBC Live, correspondent Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, interviewed Howard Wolfson, one of Clinton’s minions. Andrea said, ‘This is not the first time he’s used the word ‘intern’ in reference to Senator Clinton’s alleged lack of qualifications, so it’s an intentional point. Do you think he’s trying to provoke her by using that?’
WOLFSON: I think it’s unfortunate. You know, Hillary Clinton is a two-term United States senator. She has represented this country abroad in dozens and dozens of countries. She’s been a — an advocate for families and children, one of the nation’s foremost advocates for families and children for 35 years. And so, you know, Mitt Romney wants to engage in a campaign of insults, that’s his choice. Americans want to hear issues and ideas and not these kind of insults.
RUSH: Yeah, well, let’s hear some issues and ideas, instead of these platitudes and everything else. ‘Insults,’ from the Clinton war room, Clinton, Inc., inventing the politics of personal destruction. ‘It’s unfortunate, it’s just terribly unfortunate. You know, Hillary Clinton’s a two-term United States senator, she’s represented the country abroad’ in dozens of dozens of funerals, and she’s been an advocate for, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Moving on to Rudy Giuliani in Londonderry, New Hampshire last night at a campaign rally, and a portion of his remarks.
GIULIANI: You’re asking me overall do I think the mission in Iraq is the correct one, I think without a doubt it is, and I think the Democrats are going to change their mind about it again. Hillary and Edwards voted for taking out Saddam Hussein, and Hillary was enthusiastic about it. She has since changed her mind, and I think Edwards has apologized for it, and she hasn’t apologized for it but she said it was a mistake, but it was George Bush’s mistake. I guess he got her to vote that way.
RUSH: Right. Victory has this thing about it, you know. People want to be part of it. Here’s a new radio ad Giuliani is running, by the way.
GIULIANI: I had prostate cancer five, six years ago. My chance of surviving prostate cancer, and thank God I was cured of it, in the United States: 82%. My chances of surviving prostate cancer in England: only 44% under socialized medicine. You and I should be making the decisions about what kind of health care we get with our doctors, not with a government bureaucrat. Government has never been able to reduce costs. Government never increases quality. We have the best health care system in the world. We just have to make it better.
RUSH: That’s a new radio ad. Rudy is hitting on all cylinders here, fired up against the Democrats.
