RUSH: The big fight out there over the culinary union having its caucus in the casinos out there, and the Obama endorsement at the culinary union, the culinary union is intimidating, according to some, the union leadership is intimidating members to go out there and vote for Obama. So that’s one controversy. The other controversy is Clinton, Inc., through a subgroup, a bunch of teachers, trying to file a lawsuit to get the caucuses in the casinos canceled and not permitted. Obama talked about that in a portion of his remarks here at a campaign rally. This is last Saturday, actually, in Vegas.
OBAMA: Are we going to let a bunch of lawyers try to prevent us from bringing about change in America? Are we going to let folks change the rules when they don’t work for them?
RUSH: So Obama is out there saying that Clinton, Inc., is trying to prevent him from bringing about change. Robert Johnson, the founder of BET, the Black Entertainment Television network has apologized to Obama after first saying, ‘I’m not going to apologize. I wasn’t talking about anything but his community organizing out there,’ but now he’s fessed up. And really what this is, folks, you have to understand how Clinton, Inc., works. Remember when they sent all these people out there to apologize for saying Obama used cocaine? They keep the story alive with the apology, and that’s what I think they’re doing here with old Bob Johnson. They sent him out there in Columbia, South Carolina, at a rally with Mrs. Clinton.
JOHNSON: As an African-American, I am frankly insulted that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues, when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood that I won’t say what he was doing, but he said it in his book.
RUSH: All right, this is what he’s apologized for. He’s apologized to Obama, but that’s what he said on Sunday, and don’t forget the line about Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and Sidney Poitier. Now, I know many of you in this country are not racist, in this audience, not racist, you don’t understand the code lingo here, but what Johnson’s saying in this next bite, he’s calling Obama an Uncle Tom without using the term.
JOHNSON: That kind of campaign behavior does not resonate with me for a guy who says, I want to be a reasonable, likable, Sidney Poitier, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?
RUSH: He’s calling him an Uncle Tom there. Now, we don’t have Bob Johnson’s apology. I don’t think it’s in the roster here. But he has apologized out there to Barack Obama, which is just a way of keeping all this alive. See, we played it again here. This is part of their strategy. Even we fell into the conspiracy here without thinking about it. We played this whole thing again! (laughter)
