RUSH: Here is Mike, Staten Island in New York. It’s nice to have you on the program, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Well, Rush, pleasure to speak with a kindred spirit.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: There was a plane accident in Buffalo, and one of the victims of that accident’s husband was killed by the terrorists at the World Trade Center. She visited with Obama the other day. The audacity of these liberals gets me in the gut. Clinton could have stopped Obama. (sic) We could have saved 3,000 lives at the World Trade Center.
RUSH: No, no, no, Clinton could have stopped Osama.
CALLER: Osama. He could have saved that woman’s husband. She wouldn’t be a widow now. Instead, he passed it by in 1993. He passed up all those opportunities — and Obama had the audacity to say today that that woman moved him and inspires him. Inspires him to what, close Gitmo and free the people who killed her husband? It’s just unbelievable the hypocrisy. The utter disgust I have for these people, it’s just incredible.
RUSH: Join the club. I can’t tell you. Snerdley is telling me he has never… Since the amnesty debate, he has never encountered such anger from people on the phones. The anger is at the plan because they don’t know what’s in it, but they’re afraid they know. Anger —
CALLER: We know what’s in it.
RUSH: Yeah, we know what’s in it.
CALLER: I went to school with Holder. I know his thinking. I graduated high school with him. I know him like you know them. I know him. I know the way he thinks.
RUSH: Eric Holder.
CALLER: Eric Holder.
CALLER: I went to Stuyvesant High School. He graduated in ’65. I graduated in ’63.
RUSH: See, that’s the frustrating thing. We all know who liberals are; we know what they are. When I hear people say, ‘We need to give him a chance,’ why? You need to get up to speed. We don’t need to give liberals a chance to destroy the country or change it. You need to get up to speed and learn what it is that we’re facing here.
CALLER: Right on, Rush.
RUSH: Now, if this plane crash in Buffalo has you upset because of Obama’s audacity, I want you to listen to this story out there, Mike.
RUSH: The story is… Let’s see. Well, I don’t have a source. I think it’s the New York Post. I think I recognize the writer. ‘President Obama is caught smack in the middle of a family feud among 9/11 relatives of a financier killed at Ground Zero, The Post has learned. The brothers of Adam Arias went ballistic when they learned that their aunt … was among the 9/11 relatives invited to last week’s White House meeting with Obama. The brothers were not invited’ to last week’s White House meeting with Obama. ‘Arias, 37, a vice president of operations at Euro Brokers who worked on the 84th floor of the World Trade Center South Tower, was the eighth victim identified following the terrorist attacks. His brothers, Andy and Donald Arias, attended the hearings of five suspected plotters of the 9/11 attacks at Guantanamo Bay last month and support keeping the facility open and prosecuting the detainees immediately.’
Their aunt ‘has complained about alleged torture of [Club] Gitmo detainees and favors closing’ it. The aunt was invited. She has no direct relation to the family. Obama invited her, but did not invite the brothers. So you could say now that Obama is breaking up families. Obama’s busting up families because he finds some distantly related person who agrees with him on what to do about Gitmo, to falsely represent the views of the family regarding what to do with the detainees at Gitmo — and ignores the two brothers of the deceased who opposed what Obama wants to do. So, I have no problem saying Obama is busting up families now, creating strife wherever he goes. This guy’s dividing this country like… (laughing) He’s the great unifier? All this transparency, new era of responsibility? Mike, thank you for the call.
