RUSH: One more sound bite, ladies and gentlemen, and this sound bite dovetails with what I was saying all day long about this administration targeting individualism. This administration and the Democrat Party have an all-out assault on capitalism, individualism, and freedom, and this is how it happens. Obama, last night on The Tonight Show.
OBAMA: We need young people instead of the, you know, a smart kid coming out of school, instead of wanting to be an investment banker, we need them to decide they want to be an engineer, want to be a scientist, they want to be a doctor or a teacher, and if we’re rewarding those kinds of things that actually contribute to making things and — and making people’s lives better, that’s going to put our economy on solid footing, we won’t have this bubble and bust economy that we’ve gotten so caught up in for the last several years.
RUSH: Now, this is part of his existence. His wife said the same thing in Zanesville, Ohio, back during the campaign: Don’t be a lawyer, don’t be an investment banker, stay as a nurse or what have you. So here is the president of the United States on The Tonight Show, which, you know, the audience of that show, what would you want to guess the average IQ of the audience of The Tonight Show is? ‘Don’t be an investment banker,’ do not do that, you will destroy America. It’s none of his damn business what you want to do with your life! It’s none of his business! Unless he’s paying your education, unless he’s your father, and even then, it’s your life, and you can do with it what you want. Of all the occupations, ‘Don’t be an investment banker.’ Why? Who’s he targeting?
He wants everybody in finance to wear a giant red ‘A’ for AIG. He wants people in that business to be hated. He wants people in that business to be suspects. ‘Smart kid coming out of school, instead of wanting to be an investment banker, we need them to decide they want to be an engineer, a scientist, a doctor, a teacher, and if we’re rewarding those kinds of things, which actually contribute to making things and making people’s lives better,’ you don’t think this guy has a bug up his dress? You don’t think this guy has got a chip on his shoulder about wealthy people, what he thinks are wealthy? You don’t think this guy has a prejudice? Investment bankers don’t do anything, they make nothing happen. We need to fund things that matter, people who make things, like ACORN. What does ACORN make? Nothing but a bunch of damn corruption and trouble. This is your attack on individualism. This is your attack on liberty, and it’s coming right from the Oval Office, excuse me, excuse me, from the stage of The Tonight Show.
