RUSH: Here’s Dave in western Pennsylvania. Nice to have you on the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. Thanks-for-taking-my-call dittos.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: Rush, I would like to know who Obama is beholding (sic) to or who he owes all this to because in any circumstance like this I mean there’s gotta be somebody that’s gotta have a payback on this.
RUSH: Yeah, I have thought for the longest time that somebody chose Obama to run and was a secret sponsor, if you will.
RUSH: I have no idea. Financially, probably George Soros. I think Soros is involved. I can’t prove it, though, so I really don’t like saying it. All I know is Soros has raised all kinds of money, and if you look at his transition team, Podesta and Rahm Emanuel and a bunch of people, these are seasoned Clinton administration-types —
CALLER: Mmm-hmm. Yeah.
RUSH: — who have a little bit more experience under their belts than when they were working with the boy president, Bill Clinton. But, you know, somebody had to say, ‘Barack, you’re the guy that can do us this year because nobody’s going to criticize you because you’re black. Nobody’s going to have the guts to use that. You’re ‘articulate.’ We can put good words in your mouth. Republicans, they don’t have anybody worth talking about running,’ but I don’t know who it is. I’m under the impression somebody is behind him. You have to have somebody behind you. When you have no experience, when you have 143 days in the Senate, there has to be somebody behind the scenes doing this, and it might be a collection of people. You know, it might be the mentors that he’s had all these years. I don’t know what political experience they have in terms of advising him, but I understand what you’re talking about. You just don’t see people singularly come along, but as the Newsweek reporters are talking about, he does do everything singularly. We do know that Axelrod wrote a lot of those messianic speeches and so forth.
RUSH: Joe in Reno, nice to have you on the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Mega University of Nevada dittos.
RUSH: Yes, sir.
CALLER: I want to know what’s your take on Obama when he, in the 60 Minutes interview, said that he would use his weight to throw around to implement a college football playoff.
RUSH: Yeah. He wants a playoff system for the Bowl Championship Series, right?
CALLER: Well, we all do, but not like that!
RUSH: You mean you don’t want the president doing it?
CALLER: Well, I don’t want him —
RUSH: Why not?
CALLER: — throwing his weight around any more than he…
RUSH: When I heard that — my reaction was when I heard Obama say that he was going to do it — my guess is that a majority of people that voted him want him to do that and much more. They want him to say, ‘Here’s your health care fixed and here’s your gasoline price at two bucks a gallon. By the way, here! Your mortgage is paid off; and, by the way, we’re going to have a playoffs. I’m just going to decide this is going to be done; we’re going to do that. It’s done now.’ I think there are people that voted for him would welcome this.
CALLER: Well, I didn’t vote for him and I don’t welcome this.
RUSH: You think…?
CALLER: I don’t welcome this.
RUSH: You think this committee that put together the BCS whole system to come up with a national championship can do any better? What a mess that is.
CALLER: Yeah, well, you know, who do you think that — you know, the — the tax — Who do you think he’s going to go after for the taxes? The rich BCS people. He’s going to really do everything he can to —
RUSH: What’s taxes got to do with streamlining having a playoff system?
CALLER: Well, they’re the rich. That’s why they built the BCS is to get rich off of it. That’s what’s going on here! He’s going after ’em in numerous different ways. I’m for a playoff, but I’m not for the president throwing his weight around in such ways.
RUSH: I think actually if you want to fix the Bowl Championship Series — if you really want to come up with an unassailable way to determine the national championship Division 1 college football — you wait ’til Donovan McNabb retires from quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles and give him the problem, and I’ll bet you… Well, I don’t know.
