RUSH: I’m checking e-mail. ‘Rush, are you kidding, this theory of yours about Sanford?’ No, I’m not. My first thought was he said: ‘To hell with this. The Democrats are destroying the country. We can’t do anything to stop it. I gave everything I had to stop it here in South Carolina. My wife’s left me, the hell with it. I’m going to enjoy life what little time I’ve got left.’ Folks, there are a lot of people that are looking at life, they’re saying screw it. They’re saying screw it. Before Obama takes away all their money, before Obama takes away their house or the economy takes away their house, there are people who are simply saying the hell with this. They’ve tuned out. The hell with it. I’m just going to try to enjoy it as much as I can. Clinton was in Argentina the other night from what I’m told. I frankly think that this is what’s wrong with the economy today.
I frankly think a whole lot of people have just lost their spirit. Normal Americans, cap and trade. Stimulus bill. Taking over the automobile companies. They see it. They don’t have a voice. They’re saying screw it. I can’t stop it. The political party that I’m a member of has no spirit either. Do you see any spirit out of the Republican Party? Obama’s killing it everywhere it used to be. And that’s why the economy is languishing, because in normal times people that make this country work overcome all these obstacles. But now people don’t see any way to stop this. Warren Buffet said yesterday: We’re in a shambles. The economy’s in a shambles. There’s no improvement for the end of the year. So Sanford is saying: You know, what the hell, I love this woman. Screw it. I mean, it doesn’t make sense and forget the dignity, morality. I’m just telling you a lot of people may have the same attitude.
