RUSH: There is an Undeniable Truth of Life, ladies and gentlemen, written by me back in the 1980s. I forget what number this is. There were 35 Undeniable Truths of Life and one of them is going to be one of the themes of the program today and that Undeniable Truth of Life is ‘ours is a world governed by the aggressive use of force.’ It is not words, doctors, nurses, clean water, environmental policy that has determined and will determine the shape of the world in the future. As is always been the case, ours is a world governed by the aggressive use of force. And we have a namby-pamby wimp in the White House leading us in exactly the opposite direction, and he’s being made a fool of. Greetings, folks, and welcome. It’s Rush Limbaugh and we got a brand-new week of broadcast excellence.
Truth number six of the Undeniable Truths of Life, 35 total, number six: Ours is a world governed by the aggressive use of force. Now, I can see some people frowning at that. I’m looking at Wendy over there. Wendy is frowning, ‘What does that mean?’ I’m going to explain it and I’m going to illustrate just exactly how dangerously at risk we are with the leadership of President Obama. The National Post in Canada has published some comments that the French President Sarkozy made about Obama’s United Nations speech that I have not seen anywhere else, and they are blistering. They basically take Obama to task for being a sophomoric, wishy-washy, unrealistic boob. Imagine being told that by a leader of France, of all places.
RUSH: You see what happened in Germany? The German election? Angela Merkel… Don’t you just love real women in power? I love real women in power. She won in Germany, and she got enough of a mandate for tax cuts and a labor revamp. Which gives our international minded president two paths to follow. He can either follow Germany on the right or follow Venezuela and Iran on the left. He could go for more growth of the economy or more growth of tyranny. It shouldn’t be a tough choice, but Obama doesn’t make tough choices, folks. He votes ‘present.’ Obama makes speeches, pure and simple. I mentioned that Sarkozy mocked Obama at the UN Security Council. I’m holding in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers — I’m going to show you this on the Dittocam — a PDF file of the headline from the National Post in Canada this week. It’s got a picture of Obama and a picture of Sarkozy, and it’s full page, ‘Nuclear Loggerheads.’
And they quote Obama: ‘We must never stop until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of the earth.’ Sarkozy: ‘President Obama dreams of a world without weapons but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.’ Sarkozy smacked down Obama. Here’s the cover. I’m showing the people on the Dittocam. You will not see this in any State-Controlled Media in the United States. You won’t even see it reported. But we’re going to post it. I sent the PDF file up to Koko at the website. He’s going to put it up there. Ahmadinejad, by the way, is continuing to make fun of Obama and censure his remarks, but more on that in just a second. The French president, Sarkozy, is stronger than the American president. Here’s what Sarkozy said in total: ‘President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.
”Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993. ‘I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,’ he continued, referring to Israel. The sharp-tongued French leader even implied that Mr Obama’s resolution 1887 had used up valuable diplomatic energy. ‘If we have courage to impose sanctions together it will lend viability to our commitment to reduce our own weapons and to making a world without nuke weapons,’ he said. Mr Sarkozy has previously called the US president’s disarmament crusade ‘naïve,” and it is. Remember: ‘Ours is a world governed by the aggressive use of force.’
Turning to the Washington Post today, Fareed Zakaria. He’s also an editor at Newsweek, and I think he still has his own CNN show, but they have so small an audience that I don’t know if anybody ever sees it. His Washington Post piece from today: ‘Obama the Gambler — Betting That Machismo Is Not Foreign Policy.’ In other words, Fareed Zakaria is betting that Undeniable Truth of Life number six, ‘The world is governed by the aggressive use of force,’ is untrue. He says in this piece that we on the right have a ‘phony realism.’ ‘Obama’s speech was part of a calculated strategy. Obama was telling the world the United States is willing to be cooperative to rejoin international institutions, to adhere to treaties, but in return other countries will have to help solve some of the world’s common problems. You just can’t kick us around anymore. Obama’s approach has already produced remarkable results.’ (laughing) It sure as hell has! None any of them any good.
