RUSH: In Springfield, Missouri, Obama dropped the race card yesterday.
OBAMA: What they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, he — Oh, he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name you know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on those dollar bills, you know. He’s risky. That’s the argument. That’s essentially the argument they’re making. It’s like, the argument is, ‘I know you don’t really like what we’re doing, but he’s risky.’ Seriously, right? Right? I mean that’s basically the argument. It’s like, ‘Well, we don’t have much to offer, but he’s risky.’
RUSH: The singular national security issue of our time, that we are winning in spectacular fashion in Iraq is killing Obama and the Democrats, so the best way to address those issues — since you will not open up the Outer Continental Shelf in ANWR to drilling, since you will not respond to the American people in ways that they as opposed to — no, you accuse McCain of running a racist campaign because you know that your slaves, your disciples in the Drive-By Media will just eat that up because they are obsessed with race. So they’ll pick it up and they’ll run with the fact that McCain’s being mean and McCain’s changing his tactics. ‘Why is McCain doing this? What’s happened to McCain?’ When in fact what’s happening to Obama is nothing! No bounce out of Germany. His world tour, summer intern camp, apparently was a big bomb, ladies and gentlemen. There is more Gallup poll information today, after that little bounce he got, which was not much of one, the race is tightening up now.
