RUSH: As you know yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, Barack Obama was asked a question by a seven-year-old little girl: ‘Why do you want to run for president?’ ”Cause my country stinks,’ basically is what he said. The country stinks. (interruption) He did, Rachel. Don’t give me that look. Rachel’s in for Dawn today. He said, ‘My country’s not what it once was.’ I’m sitting there saying, ‘When was it better? When was it better, Barry? After all of 143 days in the Senate, you tell us, Barry, when it’s been better.’ So he puts down his country. Then yesterday in Norfolk, Virginia, Michelle Obama visited a second-grade classroom, and after reading a book to the kids, Michelle Obama asked them if there were any messages that they wanted her to pass on to her husband, The Messiah. Listen to this exchange that she had with an unidentified seven-year-old boy.

MICHELLE (MY BELLE) OBAMA: What do you think?

LITTLE BOY: Well, I think that we should finish what we started in Iraq.

MICHELLE (MY BELLE) OBAMA: (pause) ‘Finish what we started in I-raq.’ Okay, I will pass that along.

RUSH: Well, did it sound like she…? Could you hear what the little boy said? It’s kind of dicey. Let me — let me reeled what the little boy said. Michelle Obama: ‘What do you think?’ Little boy: ‘Well, I think that we should finish what we started in Iraq.’ There was a little silence from Michelle (My Belle), and she said, ”Finish what we started in I-raq.’ I pass that along.’ Here is a seven-year-old who has more maturity than The Messiah! I’ll never forget this. I went down to Shreveport, Louisiana, some years ago. I was like asked to speak at an annual fundraiser that the PGA Tour’s Hal Sutton and David Toms do. They’re trying to build the equivalent of a St. Jude’s Children Hospital in Shreveport, and they do this golf outing every year, and David Toms got up and was giving a few remarks before I got up and gave my stellar standing-O remarks, and he was talking about a conversation he had with his son. At some point in his career some things were not going well and he was not practicing as much and so forth, and he said his son said to him, ‘Dad, why don’t you finish what you started?’ So I guess Toms is raising his kids to, ‘Finish what you start. Don’t start it if you’re not going to finish it.’ So here’s a seven-year-old: finish what we started in Iraq. And Michelle (My Belle), you know, she’s probably expecting some question about SpongeBob SquarePants, and she gets ‘Finish what you started in Iraq.’ Here, play the bite again, and now that you know the little kid’s in there, gauge Michelle (My Belle)’s reaction.

MICHELLE (MY BELLE) OBAMA: What do you think?

LITTLE BOY: Well, I think that we should finish what we started in Iraq.

MICHELLE (MY BELLE) OBAMA: (pause) ‘Finish what we started in I-raq.’ Okay, I will pass that along.

RUSH: Let’s go back. Wednesday, Elkhart, Indiana, campaign event, Barack Obama. A seven-year-old little girl says, ‘Why did you start running for president?’

OBAMA: America, uh, is — is no longer, uh, what it — it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, ‘I don’t want that future for my children.’

RUSH: Our children want you to ‘finish what we started in Iraq’! (laughter)
