RUSH: Now, we’ve been told here that the hearings for the socialist Elena Kagan for the US Supreme Court will start on June the 26th. Now, the Democrats delayed our nominees, they blocked many of them, but for a huge lifetime appointment like Kagan they do this. And the public is going to be outraged if they understand what is occurring here. Patrick Leahy from Vermont, a radical leftist, hell-bent on pushing this woman through fast before her radicalism is understood by the public. That’s exactly what’s going on. That’s why you’re not allowed to know what her brother Irving does in his classroom. So what we have here, and I’ve been thinking about this long and hard. I came up with the phrase and then I asked myself for a couple of seconds, should I actually use the phrase? And I’ve decided that I’m going to use the phrase. What we have here, not just in the Kagan nomination but throughout our country, is a disconnect between liberalism and Americanism. I can think of no more succinct way to explain this. The truth is what really irritates people these days, particularly the left. It’s just going to irritate them like they can’t believe.
The disconnect between liberalism and Americanism. Says it all. The Kagan nomination shows it, the state dinner thing tonight, the way they’re handling that. Obama going to Ohio yesterday, 15-point-something percent unemployment in Ohio. And Obama goes in and starts talking about how wonderful things are in the country and things are coming back. It’s like pouring salt on the wound. Foreclosures and repossessions are at an all-time high, yet we’re in an economic recovery. And all this is great news for Obama. It’s the disconnect between liberalism and Americanism, and they clearly are two separate things.
