RUSH: Helen in Bowling Green, Ohio. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. Mega dittos, mega dittos, mega dittos.
RUSH: Thank you. Thanks. Thanks very much.
CALLER: The question is always asked, ‘Who is Barack Obama?’ And I think we just need to connect the dots. In a biography that one of the Drive-By Media presented, we had, oh, poor Barack, he didn’t have a dad and so Wright was somebody he could look up to, and so on and so forth.
RUSH: Wait a second. Wait a second, he did have a dad and Obama wrote about his dad and talked about what a great guy his dad was.
CALLER: Well, the one he met at 11 years old?
CALLER: Oh, okay.
RUSH: The one who got to the United States because of the Kennedys.
RUSH: I know it’s not true — it’s another lie. It’s an Obama lie — uh, misstatement. I’m sorry. I don’t want to offend people with harsh language.
CALLER: But in his book, Dreams from My Father, he wrote about how he discovered and searched his soul to find out what it would be to be a black man in America. I have not heard very many African-Americans or other black Americans searching their soul to find out. Now, how did he find out? By reading Black Boy, Langston Hughes, Ralph Ellison, all the books that were obviously recommended by Reverend Wright, who quoted Langston Hughes and Ralph Ellison today.
RUSH: All of that’s a crock. I’m sure he read the books, but not to find his soul —
CALLER: To find out what it would be like —
RUSH: This was to be able to make public speeches to make it sound like he was down for the struggle. When he had absolutely no roots whatsoever to the civil rights struggles in this country, he had to nevertheless —
CALLER: Oh, remember his parents marched in Selma, except they weren’t in the country. (laughing)
RUSH: That’s like Bill Clinton seeing black churches burn in Arkansas when none did.
RUSH: These are liberals, Helen. These are liberal Democrats. He had to prove he’s down for the struggle. He did a much better job of learning the dialect than Mrs. Clinton did when they both were down there in Selma. Obama was more able to pull off a down-for-the-struggle dialect than Mrs. Clinton. Remember, she said, ‘I ain’t no ways tired,’ and everybody was, ‘Oh, what is this, Hillary?’ She was insulting them. She was trying to sound black, southern black. Obama was much more able to pull that off than Hillary was and even his wasn’t good because he was not there. But this is all smoke and mirrors. Chalk it up to pandering. It’s all pandering, one way or the other, to every constituency group that the Democrat Party has. There’s no sincerity and there’s no genuineness or honesty. It’s just packaged that way because of the all the willing accomplices in the Drive-By who want these clowns to win. By the way, I just saw, and this is just a glance, but it was some poll. It might have been the Fox Opinion Dynamics poll, if they still do that, showed that Hillary was up in a national race over McCain 50-41. Have you seen that anywhere? I have not seen that in any of my show prep today. But Snerdley came in today — (laughing) — and a couple of other friends.
I’m going to face this right up front, folks. Snerdley came in today after seeing Jeremiah Wright. He said, ‘You realize she’s going to get the nomination, you realize this, don’t you?’ And I said, ‘That’s not in stone yet.’ ‘She is going to get the nomination, and you are going to get the blame because of Operation Chaos.’ And I’ve had some other friends say it, because people want the Clinton dragon slain. They just want it out of there. Operation Chaos has many, many battle plans; many, many options. We have foreseen all potentialities, if I may use that word. We have a battle plan if Hillary gets the nomination. We have a battle plan if Obama succeeds and pulls this off. She may well get it. These supers, you know, Howard Dean said today that one of these two, it’s up to them to quit in June. Last week he said it’s up to the superdelegates to choose one of them in June. What that tells me is the superdelegates all called Howard Dean and said (blowing a raspberry) on you. You think we’re going to decide in June, (blowing a raspberry) you, Mr. Dean, and (blowing a raspberry) you, Dr. Dean, we are not going to have anywhere we near that. So Dean, said okay, okay, okay, okay, I’ll back off. I’ll back off. I’ll tell the candidates one of them has to quit.
So that’s the latest out there. They are just in total chaos, folks. And don’t worry about who their nominee is. Remember, Operation Chaos’ objective is not to choose the nominee. It is the theory, it is the holding, the finding of the commander-in-chief of Operation Chaos that either of these two can be beat. But one of the things that cannot be denied no matter who gets the nomination, the other’s supporters are going to be livid. They will be fit to be tied. I don’t want to bring up what might happen in Denver if Hillary is the nominee.
RUSH: Friday night on Hardball, Chris Matthews was talking with Republican strategerist Todd Harris, a McCain backer, and he basically asks the McCain backer, Todd Harris, ‘Are you part of Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos?’
HARRIS: I’m not sure I want a riot. I do want this thing to go on as long as possible.
MATTHEWS: Can I say with the right warble, Operation Global, how Rush talks. What do you make of this? Look at the chuckle worthy coming out of this guy. He’s loving this. You guys do want Hillary in November, don’t you?
HARRIS: You know what, at this point —
MATTHEWS: You know you want her.
HARRIS: At this point I’m willing take to take either one of them, because both of them are going to limp into the general election.
RUSH: Operation Chaos. The McCain backer was asked if he’s part of Operation Chaos. ‘I do want it to go on for as long as possible.’ I wonder if the McCain backer will be chastised by Senator McCain by being critical of both these — no, not me — but being critical of both of these candidates.
