RUSH: This is this morning in Raleigh, North Carolina, and this is on the campaign trail. This is Obama.
OBAMA: Lately he’s called me a socialist for wanting to roll back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans so we can finally give tax relief to the middle class. I don’t know what’s next. By the end of the week he’ll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten. I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
RUSH: Hootie, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo — I didn’t hear a whole lot of laughter there. You are a socialist, there’s no question, roll back the Bush tax cuts, give tax relief to the middle class? They’re going to get a tax increase when you roll ’em back, dummy. When’s the last time you ever heard Democrats actually give anybody a tax cut? It’s another thing. When does this happen? Clinton promised it, didn’t do it; raised everybody’s taxes. Here’s Obama also this morning in Raleigh, North Carolina.
OBAMA: Can you imagine if you had your Social Security invested in the stock market these last two weeks, these last two months? You wouldn’t need Social Security, you’d be having a — you know, like, uh, what was it, Sanford and Son. I’m coming, Weezie. It ain’t right.
RUSH: Obama, betraying yourself, old buddy, old pal. Weezie was The Jeffersons. It was Elizabeth on Sanford and Son. Redd Foxx. ‘Elizabeth, it’s the big one.’ He’s having a heart attack every episode. So Obama is getting his sitcoms confused. And here again, ‘Would you have liked to have your Social Security invested in the stock market the last two weeks?’ That’s a setup, folks. Of course you wouldn’t. You’re going to have your Social Security and your pension plan in Social Security at 3%. By the way, the stock market, did you see what happened yesterday? The stock market shot up almost 9 points, 889 points late in the day in the last hour. What happened late in the day? Come on, tell me, what happened late in the day? Late in the day is when the poll came out that showed ’em at two points. Don’t tell me that this market’s not reacting to this election. That market skyrocketed because those people on Wall Street watch television, too, they think this is in the bag. Why do you think the market’s plummeting? Why do you think the overall direction of the market is down, down, down, down? Because they think the election is over, too. They’re watching all this rotgut garbage and believing it, and all of a sudden they hear about a poll that comes out that shows it two points, bam, up 889 points.
