RUSH: Now let’s go back to me, February 16th, myself speaking here on my show.
RUSH ARCHIVE: It isn’t going to be long before we go back to amnesty, and it isn’t going to be long before we start, you know, doing a number of — I’ll bet you by this summer, Obama comes back for another stimulus package after they do TARP 2 sometime in March. Mark my words. That’s the way this is going to happen. Remember, FDR ‘didn’t spend enough soon enough.’
RUSH: That’s what they said, FDR’s mistake was he didn’t spend enough soon enough. I predicted a comeback for Porkulus 2. Last night on CNN, Anderson Cooper 360, Anderson spoke with former Clinton advisor David ‘Rodham’ Gergen about Obama and the economy — and Cooper said, David, ‘What do you think? Do you think he’s going to ultimately have to ask for more?’
GERGEN: I think the son of stimulus is on its way. It’s going to be here sooner than we think. My bet is we’re going to see a second stimulus much sooner than we thought.
RUSH: (long sigh) Now, I could gloat and I could go, ‘Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah,’ but that would be beneath me, my friends, because I, of course, am a man of great humility. But you might also be saying, ‘Gosh, Rush, how do you know these things?’ Friends, it’s not hard. I would love to tell you that it takes a superior intellect and a tireless amount of work and true devotion to be able to be this prophetic and prescient, but it takes none of that. All it takes is an honest willingness to admit what you know about liberalism. All it requires is for you to understand what liberalism is. And the best way to understand what liberalism is, is to listen to liberals! And after you listen to liberals, then study what they’ve done. There are two things above all else, and there are many. But there are two umbrellas under which all the other things happen: tax and spend, and cut defense. So you have three umbrellas: tax, spend, and cut defense. Everything else happens under those three umbrellas. It was a no-brainer there was going to be a second stimulus, and now David ‘Rodham’ Gergen tells us it’s so.
RUSH: Oh, you gotta hear this. Brit Hume last night on the Fox News Channel Special Report with Bret Baier, Brit Hume was on there as a panelist, and this is what he had to say about David ‘Rodham’ Gergen.
HUME: CNN’s David Gergen, the former Clintonite, long regarded as the absolute symbol of Washington conventional wisdom.
RUSH: The absolute symbol of Washington conventional wisdom. What that means is there’s not an original syllable that comes out of the mouth of David ‘Rodham’ Gergen. That’s one of the most artful cuts — I don’t even know and I’m not going to say that Mr. Hume was doing that, actually, because I’m sure Gergen’s a friend of his. But that’s just one of those things, ‘he’s the absolute symbol of conventional wisdom.’ Conventional wisdom is groupthink. There’s nothing admirable about conventional wisdom. I, of course, want nothing to do with conventional wisdom. I resist the tug of popular sentiment.
