RUSH: Ann in Houston, great to have you on the program, welcome.
CALLER: A privilege to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: You, I’m sure, remember the old Charles Atlas ads. Well, I think that Obama is skinny at the beach, and you are kicking sand in his face.
CALLER: But, Rush, in Obama’s speech he said that the United States represents 2% of the world’s population and has 20% of the world’s resources.
CALLER: And I think that drives him crazy. I think he wants to redistribute not only in the United States, but to the world. What’s your comment?
RUSH: I think you’re exactly right. I think you have nailed precisely who Obama is. The left has been using that stat for as long as I’ve been able to hear. I can still hear even though I am deaf. They use it in describing enemy. ‘Yes, yes! We are but X percent of the world’s population, and we use 25% of the world’s energy. How guilty of us. We’re stealing from people around the world.’ I think Obama really believes this. We are 2% of the world’s population, and we are using 25% of the world’s resources, and of course we’re doing it in a criminal way, in his view. We’re robbing all the people around the world. We don’t do one damn thing for anybody that’s good. He doesn’t see us this way. I think, Ann, you are right on the money, and that aspect of his speech, I’m glad you picked up on that. I’m glad you noticed it, because that’s what animates him. That’s how he’s been raised, it’s how he’s been educated, that is what informs him. That is why he thinks this country is unjust, unfair, and immoral — and that’s why it’s time to cut us down to size. You have nailed it head on.
