RUSH: This guy Obama is dangerous, because he’s an idiot. I mean, really. They talk about how brilliant this guy is, that he went to Harvard and so forth. I did some checking. This guy never wrote anything at Harvard Law. He just was head of Law Review. He never wrote anything — probably on purpose, not to create a paper trail. Number two, he might not have been capable of it, for all I know. But I mean the things this guy says, the people he hangs around with, the associates he chooses to become part of his administration. Hell, he just went to somebody out there. He just hired somebody to be one of his big advisors on something who ended up quoting Winnie the Pooh! I’m not kidding. He quoted Winnie the Pooh in terms of foreign policy, how we have to behave. I’ll find this. I’ve got four stacks here. Ah. Here it is today. It’s Richard Danzig.
‘Richard Danzig, who served as Navy secretary under President Clinton is tipped to become national security advisor in an Obama White House.’ By the way, I thought Obama was about all this change. He’s getting a bunch of retreads from the Clinton administration to run the show here, just a full bunch of retreads. There’s nothing new, here. Anyway, Danzig ran the Navy for Clinton and is going to be national security advisor in Obama’s White House, ‘told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to this: ‘If it is causing you too much pain, try something else.’ Mr. Danzig told the Center for New American security, quote, ‘Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.” Now, I got this from our old buddy Jim Geraghty at National Review Online at the Campaign Spot. Now, this sounds like something you’d see on a satire web page. ”Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.’ He spelled out how American troops, spies, and anti-terrorist officials could learn key lessons by understanding the desire of terrorists to emulate super heroes like Luke Skywalker and the lust for violence of violent football fans.’ These are the people Obama seeks to surround himself with. He’s a blooming idiot, folks.
