RUSH: Let me synthesize this for you. People who shouldn’t be voting. People who shouldn’t be getting home loans. These practices are undermining our country, but these people who shouldn’t be voting — ACORN-registered voters 7200 times, whatever; people who get loans, mortgages that they can never pay back — this is the new Democrat Party power base. The push to get people in homes they can’t afford has undermined the economy. The push to get people to the polls who don’t even know where the polls are, much less who is running for office, because they are either dead or they vote someplace else. This will undermine the political system.
So you undermine the economy, you undermine the political system, and what do you do? You destroy America as currently defined. Obama is tied directly to both efforts! This is ACORN. ACORN is involved in both fraudulent — massively fraudulent — voter registration and the whole mortgage crisis. It’s a Democrat funded group. Do you know the government funds ACORN? Not in this bailout. I’m not even talking the bailout. ACORN is a 30-year-old organization, and for 30 years they have been listed as nonpartisan and they get government grants. Obama is tied to the mortgage crisis and the fraudulent registration of voters via ACORN. This is a deliberate attempt to destroy capitalism and replace it with socialism. It’s all tied together. Obama is the leader. The foot soldiers are behind the curtain. You don’t see them, but they’re there.
Obama is out there saying, ‘Well, you know, McCain didn’t say this to my face.’ One of the bravest men this country has ever produced is John McCain. Say it to his face, Senator. Senator, it is time that this radical be stood up to. You’re the one who must do it. You are the presidential nominee of our party. This has nothing to do with partisanship; it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with solving this problem, and we’re not going to solve this problem by working hand-in-hand with Barack Obama and his buds. A confrontation is in order. State the facts; let the American people decide. State the facts to his face, Senator McCain, next week in the debate. It’s the easiest statement he could ever have. You will not be tortured for reporting the facts. You might be pilloried by the press, but that’s nothing, Senator, compared to what you have endured in your life. You’ll be a hero again.
RUSH: I want to go back to Waukesha, Wisconsin, yesterday for two audio sound bites ’cause the Drive-Bys… You know what the Drive-Bys reported about Waukesha? Anger is the theme of McCain rally. Anger! People in the rallies are fed up. The lunatic fringe is mad as they can be, and it’s because of the guy who admitted he was mad. Let me give you guys, the Drive-Bys, a little hint. We are mad. We are sitting around watching the country get reoriented and changed. You’re doing nothing whatsoever representative of what your original job is, but we fight on. Here is the first two of bites from yesterday. Since the media is recasting this — and they did not use the second bite that I’m going to use, the realtor who wanted McCain to name names. They didn’t use that. So we will expose it, once again, to our vast audience here. Here is cut one of two.
MAN: I’m mad! I’m really mad. And what’s gonna surprise you is, it’s not the economy. It’s the socialists taking over our country. (cheers and applause) I think it’s so important in today’s country, what we’re really missing and what’s going on. When you have an Obama, Pelosi, and the rest of the hooligans up there gonna run this country, we gotta have our head examined. It’s time that you two are representing us, and we are mad. So go get ’em! (wild cheers)
RUSH: Right on. Right on. Right on. (clapping) They heard the message, yes. It was a town hall meeting. This was also good and the media spent hardly any time on this at all.
WOMAN: I’m a realtor witnessing firsthand the effect the mortgage crisis has had on many people’s lives. Will you assure us that, as president, you will take immediate action to investigate, prosecute, and name the names of the people actually responsible?
MCCAIN: I will. And it is already a matter of record that Democrat members of Congress fought against reform, and it’s a matter of record and hearings that they said everything was fine. Senator Obama, a year ago, said, these kinds of subprime loans are, quote, ‘fine with him.’ And the fact is that the same people that are now claiming credit for this rescue are the same ones that were willing coconspirators in causing this problem that it is, and you know their names, and you will know more of their names. Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Chris Dodd are two of them. (wild applause)
RUSH: So it’s just right out there in front of him! It’s just right there. That’s how he can — if he can, boy, do this — say it to Obama’s face next week in the debate. You’ve been challenged here, Senator McCain, by this man-child. He wants to hear it in his face? Why, you let him have it right in the face!
