RUSH: All right, let’s go to the bomb that I dropped on Fox & Friends today. I had an interview Friday afternoon (transcript, video) with Gretchen Carlson out in Las Vegas. First question: ‘So, for those who are critics of you in judging the Miss America Pageant saying that you haven’t been a supporter of women in the past, what do you say?’
RUSH ARCHIVE: I’m a huge supporter of women! What I’m not is a supporter of liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose and feminism has led women astray. I love women. I don’t know where this gets started. I love the women’s movement — especially when walking behind it. This idea that I don’t like women is absurd! And this is Miss America, and if there’s a Mr. America out there, it’s me.
RUSH: So this is a perfect fit.
RUSH: Now, this next is the bomb. This is the one that the State-Run Media is headlining all over the place: ‘Limbaugh Thanks God Obama is Failing!’ Her question: ‘[W]hile you were out here in Vegas, there was a big State of the Union speech by President Obama.’
RUSH ARCHIVE: State of Obama speech.
CARLSON: (laughs) Is that what you’re calling it?
RUSH ARCHIVE: State of Obama.
CARLSON: So I assume you had a chance to see it even though you’ve been working nonstop.
RUSH ARCHIVE: Well, yeah. I gave up after 50 minutes. I heard it all before. There was nothing new in it. The only difference was the tone. I went back and listened to some of his soaring rhetorical speeches during the campaign. This was defensive, petulant, immature, childish, sarcastic. He’s clearly angry that he’s been rejected — that his wonderfully brilliant ideas (health care and cap and trade) have been rejected. I saw a guy, a young, inexperienced guy just mad. I think, Gretchen — I really do — I think this is the first time in his life that there’s not a professor around to turn his C into an A or to write the law review article for him that he can’t write. He’s totally exposed. There’s nobody to make it better. I think he’s been covered for all of his life. The fact that his agenda has totally failed this year is the best thing that could have happened to this country. I thank God every day that this is going down the tubes, that that Massachusetts election happened. Not that God had anything to do with it. That’s just the person I thank.
RUSH: And that — those last four lines; but all of that, that whole bite — you know, they’re acting like volcanoes today. TheHill.com started running stories about it last night. ‘The fact that his agenda has totally failed this year is the best thing could have happened to the country.’ Hey, I’m just being consistent. I said a year ago I wanted him to fail for this exact reason. He’s not failing at everything. He is succeeding very much at destroying the private sector and enlarging government. But not for long.
RUSH: Here’s the third little short bite from the interview with Gretchen Carlson on Fox & Friends today. Part two, by the way, is tomorrow — unless they edited it into one. When she told her they were going to do two parts, I think she said 15 or 20 minutes. How long was today’s segment, Snerdley? (interruption) Ten minutes? It seemed like ten minutes? Well, that couldn’t have been all of it, so I don’t know. We’ll find out. As a powerful, influential member of the media I know people over there, and I can find out what they plan on doing tomorrow.
Here’s the final third little bite.
RUSH ARCHIVE: [The Scott Brown election] is just the tip of the iceberg. That’s just an indication of what’s coming in November. I mean, I don’t think… I think the Democrats are rocked back on their heels more than they’re letting on. They’re shocked. This is ‘the Kennedy seat’! If there is ever an entitlement in politics, it’s (makes air quotes) ‘the Kennedy seat,’ and it’s gone, and it wasn’t even close.
RUSH: Yeah, and there are more losses coming. A bunch of people looking at this. If the election were held today, some supposedly nonpartisan political consultants are saying Democrats would lose ten, would lose ten Senate seats if the election were held today.
