RUSH: Ellen in Rocky River, Ohio. Welcome to the EIB Network. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Huh, Rush. Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: Yes, ma’am.
CALLER: You know, I was wondering if you had seen or knew anything about there was a debate between Jim McGovern… He is the Democrat, the sitting Democrat congressman from the Third Congressional District in Massachusetts. He’s running against Marty Lamb. Well, they were —
RUSH: Oh, yeah. This is the guy that said the Constitution’s wrong.
CALLER: I was scrolling through the Internet and I saw it, and I thought, well, it was worth watching. And when I first heard it and saw it I thought, ‘I must not have heard it correctly.’ So I did the replay, and indeed I did hear it correctly, so I didn’t know whether to be more appalled, angry, disappointed. So I called his DC office yesterday and got right through, and the person who answered the phone was quick to tell me that he had ‘misspoken.’ And, you know, I didn’t want to sound snide or contentious, but I felt compelled to correct her. What I said was, ‘If by ‘misspeaking’ you mean it slipped out, then I would agree. If you’re gonna define ‘misspeaking’ as that’s not what he meant, I would profoundly disagree with you.’ It would appear to me that he and his ilk see the Constitution as a huge impediment —
RUSH: You’re right, they do.
CALLER: — for them to, you know, advance their agenda. They’ve done a fine job restricting free speech with political correctness.
RUSH: I had the sound bite yesterday, and didn’t get to it. I was in a foul mood yesterday; I’m in a fouler mood today. I didn’t get to it yesterday. But one of the reasons, not just ’cause I was in a foul mood. Democrats, all Democrats think the Constitution is wrong. I mean, that’s their premise. That’s why they appoint the judges they appoint, to rewrite the damn thing under the auspices of law. I mean, Obama used to teach that the Constitution is wrong! He’s a constitutional law lecturer. I mean Obama is on record saying the Bill of Rights is screwy. We need a new Bill of Rights. FDR got the ball rolling on that, because the Constitution doesn’t spell out what government can do for people or to people. Democrats don’t like it, period. This guy — you were right. He let the cat out of the bag. He ‘misspoke,’ meaning, ‘Uh-oh. Oh, gosh. I didn’t want people to know we think that.’
CALLER: Can I just make two quick comments about Sharron Angle and health care? I’m a health care professional. I’m a nurse manager. So I certainly have a vested interest as a consumer of health care and also somebody who works in the industry. I think she was quite articulate. I watched the debate between her and Harry Reid on YouTube this morning.
CALLER: I’m home doing homework but, at any rate, what she was saying — and I thought it was right on — is there should be no mandate. If an individual consumer wants some type of coverage that would cover preventative care, he or she should be able to purchase that in the marketplace. If, however, they don’t want a policy that covers, you know, colonoscopies or mammograms or whatever, that, too, should be a choice. So I thought that she handled it very well. I really thought she did mop up the floor with Harry Reid.
RUSH: No question about it. They think that at Newsweek magazine, they think that at the New Republic, they think that at the Las Vegas newspapers. There’s no question. She was far more knowledgeable and coherent than Harry Reid was. And Christine O’Donnell was more knowledgeable and coherent than that ‘bearded Marxist’ clown. What’s his name? I can never remember. (interruption) Coons. That’s right, Coons. I think both of these women mopped the floor with these guys. Harry Reid is a fool. Coons is, too. All liberals are fools. They make no sense. The difference is, they are not treated with disdain.
They are not insulted, nor are they impugned the way Sharron Angle is and has been, Sarah Palin is and has been, or Christine O’Donnell is and has been.
RUSH: Okay, here’s a simple question here. ‘Who is the more stupid: Christine O’Donnell, who could not cite a recent Supreme Court decision with which she disagreed, or Jim McGovern and Obama who disagree with a Supreme Court decision they don’t even understand — and that’s the Citizens United case?’ You see, it’s always the opposite of what the popular assumption is. The Democrats are the uninformed idiots.
RUSH: This is James McGovern. We had a caller reference this. The guy said the Constitution is wrong, Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, earlier this week in a debate of the congressional candidates for Massachusetts 3, James McGovern (Democrat) said this about money in politics and the Constitution.
MCGOVERN: Here’s the problem. We have a lousy Supreme Court decision that has opened up the floodgates, and so we have to deal within the realm of constitutionality, and a lot of the campaign finance bills that we have passed have been declared unconstitutional by the security. I think the Constitution is wrong. I don’t think money is the same thing as human beings. I don’t think money equals free speech. I don’t think — I don’t think corporate — corporations should have the same equality, uh, as, uh, — as a — as a regular voter in this — in this — in this disctrict.
RUSH: Well, there you have it. ‘I think Constitution is wrong. I don’t think corporations should have the same equality as a regular voter.’ Who is corporations? McGovern is saying exactly what Obama said during his State of the Union, and that’s when Alito shook his head. This is exactly what Obama said when Alito shook his head and said, ‘No, you’re wrong.’ The decision wasn’t wrong. The Constitution’s wrong. And the Democrats are hell-bent on ‘fixing’ the Constitution.
