RUSH: Sunday afternoon during the Super Bowl today, the pregame show, and the perky Katie Couric interviewing Obama. She says, ‘Have you ruled out trying the confessed 9/11 mastermind in New York City?’
OBAMA: I have not ruled it out but I think it’s important for us to take into account the practical, logistical issues involved. I mean if you’ve got a city that is saying ‘no’ and a police department that’s saying ‘no’ and a mayor that’s saying ‘no’ that makes it difficult. But I — I think that the most important thing for the public to understand is, we’re not handling any of these cases any different than the Bush administration handled them all through 9/11.
RUSH: I’m keeping my mouth closed here, folks. This is bordering on profanity time. The Bush administration wanted military tribunals. It was only because the Bush administration was forced by some courts who took over the commander-in-chief duties, but that’s not even the point. That’s not even the point. I thought Bush was a war criminal. I thought Bush’s policies made us hated and less safe. I thought Bush’s policies added up to recruitment for Al-Qaeda, and yet our president, our young man-child president now says he’s no different than the Bush administration. First off it’s a lie, but wait ’til the left gets a hold of this, that he’s no different than Bush, they want Bush frog-marched into a jail. I’m tempted to agree with them here if Obama goes, too. But I don’t want to go that far. No, no.
Ladies and gentlemen, here’s the best way to explain Obama to you. When he says that he’s now gonna focus on jobs, many times last week, and then on Sunday holds out this proposal for Republicans to come and talk to him at the White House on health care, you might not understand his definition of focus. When he says he’s going to focus on jobs, it doesn’t mean he’s focusing on jobs. It means he’s going to mention it. ‘Focus’ simply means ‘mention’ to Obama, because he’s obviously not focused.
