RUSH: Yes, Snerdley, I’m going to be talking about Alvin Greene. Now the Democrats in South Carolina are trying to get the guy thrown off the ballot. They suspect a Republican trick here. This is hilarious. So here is yet another black liberal that the Democrat Party is trying to throw overboard. This is hilarious. Yu got Helen Thomas, too. Liberals are showing us exactly who they are each and every day. The Politico today on June 3rd. This is still is relevant to today. ‘White House Political Team Stumbles, Bumbles — They toppled Hillary Clinton, crushed John McCain and managed to get the first black man elected president of the United States. But now a series of recent missteps just keeps getting worse for Barack Obama’s political operation, already under fire from inside the party for losing its golden touch.

‘The second-guessing of the White House political shop — which is coming in part from top House Democrats — was sparked anew late Wednesday by news that the White House tried and failed to coax another Democratic Senate candidate out of making his race by dangling administration jobs in front of him.’ So here’s two felonies. The first one was overlooked. Now we’ve got this one. This was the guy out in, I think, Colorado. (interruption) Romanoff, that’s right. Romanoff. This poor Alvin Greene. Why can’t Alvin Greene be like Nancy Pelosi’s idea of legislation? You only find out about him once he’s been elected. (laughing) Folks, this takes the cake. This is just fabulous. I mean, even Robert Byrd must be embarrassed by this level of out and out racism coming from the Democrat Party here. If a white politician referred to a black primary winner as ‘elephant [dung]’ like Jim Clyburn did… Jim Clyburn, House majority whip, member of the Congressional Black Caucus, called this guy elephant dung.

Wouldn’t the news media be outraged if a Republican had used that term? Where are Sharpton and Jackson on this? In fact, you know, I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a new Justice Brothers ad from Sharpton and Jackson over this. omebody told me… Oh, I’m not going to make this public, how to get an iPhone. If I do this, I’ll destroy it for everybody else. I’m going to try it. Somebody just sent me a tip here how to do it. I almost blurbed it. I’ll do it after. I’ll try it in the next break and see if I succeed. So anyway here’s poor old Alvin Greene. All he needs to do is file a complaint with the Civil Rights Commission charging racial discrimination, violation of his civil rights. As for the rumor campaign that he’s somehow a Republican, this is a standard page out of the old Stalinist playbook: ‘If you can’t suppress your political enemies by any other means short of shooting them then you make ’em out to be mentally ill,’ which is what they’re trying to do.

They’re trying to make this guy mentally ill. ‘He’s a nutcase!’ He’s a black liberal and the Democrat Party is out to destroy him. Where are Sharpton and Jackson, here? Now, the last time I checked — you know, I check constantly — the Constitution doesn’t say anything about elected representatives’ mental capacity. If it did a whole hell of a lot of them that are there now would be disqualified. But mental capacity does not show up in the qualifications. Now, there’s supposedly some criminal charges against Alvin Greene, but wasn’t Democrat Marion Berry elected as mayor of DC after being convicted? And doesn’t the House have oversight of the DC elections? And isn’t it true that the Congressional Black Caucus is trying to get Pelosi to get rid of the ethics committee in toto, because so many of them may be ensnared by ethics violations? (laughing)

And they have the audacity to run out and say that poor Alvin Greene faces criminal charges when the whole black caucus is trying to shut down the ethics office? (laughing) What about Alcee Hastings and who knows how many others who have gained office despite a criminal record? Greene hasn’t even been convicted of anything yet! Alcee Hastings was out there making deals with criminal defendants to get ’em acquitted if they would pay him off, and now he’s an elected Democrat in the House of Representatives from Florida. As for the charges that the Republican Party was somehow involved in a conspiracy to get Alvin Greene elected, Jim DeMint would be the prohibitive favorite down there no matter who was the Dem candidate.

Why would the South Carolina GOP risk doing anything to screw it up? DeMint can’t lose. Why would they do this? (laughing) But, folks, you know what’s happening here. They’re literally throwing another black liberal overboard in the book Democrat Party, and yet who is it that are the racists? It’s us, the conservatives, they say. You know what I think? I suspect the truth is that Alvin Greene was a real sleeper candidate, nobody noticed on either side. The Democrat candidate, Vic Raul, probably wanted to save his campaign money for facing DeMint. He didn’t brother to advertise. So he didn’t have the name recognition he needed. So more of the votes just went to the first guy on the ballot in alphabetical order, which is Alvin Greene. He did spend $10,000. That’s another thing that’s got ’em all ticked off. (laughing)

He won the election spending ten grand or some such thing and he can’t even tell ’em where he spent it! (laughing) He doesn’t even know. (laughing) I guess, ladies and gentlemen, these kinds of things have probably happened in primaries before, especially in off-year elections, but the party bosses just kept their mouthes shut. In this case (laughing) he got 60% of the vote and they’re trying to reverse it, in an election they don’t have a prayer of winning anyway. Oh, my God, what an opportunity! Every day we wake up theism tell us who they really, really are. ‘Let every vote count,’ except for the black guy Alvin Greene. Where is all the sympathy for this poor guy? You know, part of the left’s compassion is based on sympathy for all of the discrimination and racism and even slavery that has occurred as heritage black people, and yet none of that matters for Alvin Greene.

Where is the sympathy for the poor guy? I mean, even William Jefferson when he was caught cold handed with 90 grand in his freezer they said, ‘Well, you know, he grew up a sharecropper’s son! He never had any money. We have to understand where these people came from and give him the benefit of the doubt.’ Well, where’s that kind of thinking for Alvin Greene? He doesn’t have 90 grand in a freezer or anywhere else. He didn’t steal it. He hasn’t committed a crime anybody can convict him of. Yet the Democrat Party cannot wait to rid itself of this guy. It’s still funny to see them running around trying to overturn the results. Now they’re even seizing on the electronic voting machines. You know, this is funny, too, because Democrats for years have fought to get rid of the paper ballot since they know it’s easier to rig elections when there’s no paper trail. Now they want to seize the voting machines! (laughing) Why does…? The only reason this party is anywhere is because they are totally propped up by a media that people think are objective.


RUSH: Mark in Saluda, South Carolina. It’s great to have you on the program. Hello.

CALLER: Hi, Rush.

RUSH: Hey!

CALLER: Nice to talk to you.

RUSH: Nice to talk to you, sir.

CALLER: Congratulations on your wedding. I’m a little nervous. I’m sorry.

RUSH: No reason. You don’t even sound nervous. So no reason to be. You’re going to look back on this experience as something you’ll love very much. You’re going to want to repeat it over and over again.

CALLER: Me, too. I’m telling you, bro. I’m telling you. I was calling about this Alvin Greene situation.

RUSH: Mmm-hmm?

CALLER: I wanted to call you last week or so when it happened. This guy… (laughs) I don’t know. They’ve had the actual lady that’s the Democratic chairman for South Carolina — Fowler, I believe her name is. She actually said, ‘Well, you know, we took his money, but he really couldn’t say anything and tell what had you seen platform was or anything like that,’ and I’m serious: This guy cannot put a sentence together. He is just… Ugh. It’s terrible. But I saw earlier on Fox that they had a Rasmussen poll, and he’s still getting 21% of the vote up against Jim DeMint with like 56. (chuckling)

RUSH: That’s the whole point here. No matter who they nominated nobody is going to beat DeMint, particularly this year. Now, this guy came up with 10 grand for the filing fee.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: Look, this guy makes more sense than Joe Biden does. I mean, this is puts sentences together better than Joe Biden does. This guy has never said to a guy in a wheelchair, ‘Hey, Chuck, stand up!’

CALLER: That’s a fact. That is a fact.

RUSH: We can’t be too hard on this guy.

CALLER: Well, maybe. I don’t know. He might pull it out. I might vote for him myself, I don’t know. I might switch over and vote for him —

RUSH: (laughing)

CALLER: — to just help him out a little bit.

RUSH: Oh, this poor guy. I just… You have to appreciate here. You talk about the guy can’t put two sentences together. So? I mean, Democrats can’t do that, either, unless they lie — and this guy apparently doesn’t have the ability to lie.

CALLER: No. No. He can’t. I don’t think he can lie about it.

RUSH: I saw him on TV. He was interviewed and they asked, ‘Who’s your opponent?’ He had to consult his notes. (laughing)

CALLER: Oh, yeah. About all he can say is, ‘I have no comment on that.’

RUSH: (laughing)

CALLER: Especially when it comes, like Snerdley said, ‘the alleged porn charges.’

RUSH: (laughing)

CALLER: I think Mr. Snerdley needs to give us the black perspective on that situation.

RUSH: You know it is time for Obama Criticizer segment. Not on Alvin Greene, but we do need to revive the Obama criticizer.


RUSH: It’s been awhile since the Official Obama Criticizer — that’s a good idea.

CALLER: Absolutely.

RUSH: I think… Look, you give this guy, Alvin Greene, a teleprompter and I’m sure he can come off like Obama does. You know, could be that the only difference between Alvin Greene and Barack Obama is… I mean, Obama went out there and said he was going to visit all ’57 states’ and they’re harping on Alvin Greene? Obama’s put his foot in I don’t know how many times. He’s said stupid, crazy things, and they just give him a pass ’cause everybody knows he graduated from Harvard. But Alvin Greene, somehow, has to be some kind of big idiot.


RUSH: Folks, I don’t know how many times I’ve told you this, do not doubt me. From a June 11th Washington Post article: ‘The University of South Carolina confirms that Greene graduated in 2000 with a degree in political science. The Pentagon confirms that he served in the Army, and in the Army and Air Force national guards. Although Greene has not boasted of winning awards, the Pentagon says he was granted the Air Force Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and Korean Defense Service Medal.’ This guy has been active. Korean Defense Service Medal, the Washington Post, June 11th, confirms all of this.

From a June the 9th ABC News article: ‘Greene has been unemployed and living in his rural hometown 60 miles south of Columbia. He doesn’t own a cell phone and there is no computer in his house. He returned home last August when he was involuntarily forced out of the Army after a 13 year career because ‘things just weren’t working … it was hard to say.’ He had served as an intelligence specialist in the Air Force and later as a unit supply specialist in the Army.’ So there you have it from impeccable sources, the Washington Post and ABC News.
