RUSH: Now, ladies and gentlemen, seriously, it is time for election strategy. Everybody sits around and waits for the predictable October Surprise. What will it be? Who will launch it, who will be the target, what will be the objective of the October Surprise? I would like to be the October Surprise. I would like to announce the October Surprise today: Reverse Operation Chaos. You remember the original Operation Chaos was at the end of the Democrat primaries, we’d already had our nominee, McCain was already chosen. Our defeat was sealed. So we wanted the Democrat primary to extend, to go on and on and on, A, so we would have some fun, B, to keep my audience engaged, getting them involved in it, and, C, to try to expose Obama to as many people as possible to counter the notion he was the messiah. So Operation Chaos suggested in remaining primary states that Republicans register in those states, since our primary was done, Republicans re-register as Democrats and vote for Mrs. Clinton to extend the Democrat primary. So we were given credit. Operation Chaos was given credit for Hillary’s narrow squeak of a win in Indiana and for her keeping it close in Texas and for making Pennsylvania relevant. So it’s time today, ladies and gentlemen, for I, me, El Rushbo, to announce Reverse Operation Chaos.

Here it is. Any Democrat — and there are probably a lot of you, and you know who you are, and I know and you know that you are listening — any Democrat who believes that Hillary Clinton would make a far better president than Barack Obama will, anybody who believes that Hillary Clinton would stand a much better chance of beating the Republicans in a race for the White House in 2012, if any of you Democrats believe that Hillary Clinton got cheated in the 2008 primaries, you boys and girls at HillBuzz, I’m thinking of you people. I mean you were the first to realize the fraud that Obama was. Hillary was your gal. Is she still? There’s still that website, HillBuzz, still out there. These guys are in Chicago. So if you think Hillary would have a better time beating the Republican nominee, whoever it is in 2012; if you believe that Hillary would make a better president than Barack Obama or anybody that the Republicans nominate, if you believe, as a Democrat, that Hillary Clinton got screwed, got shafted during the 2008 primaries; if you believe that Barack Obama will be responsible for an historic and humiliating loss of congressional and Senate seats and thus power in November; if Barack Obama is sufficiently embarrassed, Hillary Clinton will be seen as the Democrats’ best hope of holding onto the White House in 2012 and 2016, therefore, if you believe, as Democrats, that the only way out of this mess… here, look at what you got! You’re about to lose it. You had 60 seats in the Senate; you had a supermajority in the House; you had the White House; you had a messiah. And look what’s happened. Your party is singularly being destroyed, and the Republicans don’t even have a nominee. Your party is being destroyed, and the Republicans are still talking about wanting to work with Obama.

Darrell Issa is out there saying so today, and Mitch McConnell is out there saying so today. They want to work with the president. You have a golden opportunity to stop, to stave off what could be and what all the pollster experts are predicting to be a Democrat wipeout. But you have to be forward thinking. There’s nothing you can do about what’s going to happen in ten days, 11 days. But depending on what you do in ten or 11 days, you could be a major factor in your party’s rebound. Do you realize how incredible this is to have to talk now about the Democrat Party needing to rebound, after just 20 months, in total almost totalitarian power? How do you bring this about? Well, it’s Reverse Operation Chaos. Hillary Clinton Democrats, stay home next Tuesday. Hillary Democrats do not go to the polls, they do not vote, they do not vote fraud, they do not cheat, they do not interrupt the election at all. They do not accept free rides to the polling places by union thugs. Speak truth to power with your silence and your sedentary nature on Tuesday. Stay home. Do not vote. Leave Obama on an island all by himself, the island of Democrat dissolution. After all, he has brought it about single-handedly.


Strong turn-out for Democrats on Tuesday will solidify Obama’s place in the party going forward, and all this talk about Hillary in 2012 is gonna go by the wayside if there’s a huge Democrat turn-out, if there’s anything like an upset within the realm of current expectations. A strong turnout for Democrats would solidify Obama’s place in the party going forward, and Hillary Clinton will be officially put out to pasture. It’s up to you. As of today, Hillary Clinton appears to be a far stronger candidate for president in 2012 than Barack Obama does. Now, things could change, but that’s what it looks like right now, and it’s only 11 days away. Do you have the time to roll the dice and think Obama could put this back together? Do you even want him to? I am speaking with great compassion and concern for those of you in the Democrat Party. Hillary Clinton’s future, Bill Clinton’s future, and of course therefore the future of Ron Burkle and Harvey Weinstein and all the other Clintonites who have been frozen out of power, they all want back in. Hillary’s future, Bill Clinton’s future, as much as Obama’s, will in all likelihood be determined on November 2nd of this year.

On November 2nd of this year, Democrats will choose which horse they want to ride in 2012. We’ll find out on Tuesday which horse the Democrats want to ride: Obama or Hillary Clinton. It’s that simple. If you believe Hillary got shafted, if you believe Hillary got screwed — politically of course I’m referring here — if you believe Hillary got cheated; if you believe Obama is single-handedly destroying one of the greatest moments in Democrat Party history, single-handedly, you have a duty to stay home and let this referendum on Obama happen as the experts think it will. If Hillary Clinton were president now, would we be in this mess? You know it and I know it. She would be better able to handle that three a.m. phone call. She herself said it in the campaign, that he’s not capable of it, mostly because he’s not there, and even when he is there, he’s not ready for it. To paraphrase Harry Truman: Give them Hillary. If not now, when? If not who, you. It’s very simple. The future of the Democrat Party is on the ballot as much as the Republicans and their future is in 2012. Figure out which horse you want to be on, figure out which horse you want to ride. Would this country be in the dire straits, would the Democrat Party be in the dire straits it’s in if Hillary Clinton were president right now? Think about it. Reverse Operation Chaos November 2nd in the year 2010.

RUSH: Reverse Operation Chaos, announced by the director of Operation Chaos, I, El Rushbo. You Democrats, you are the ones Hillary has been waiting for. Vote with your feet. Put ’em up on the coffee table on November 2nd, or, in fact, you can even double down. That may be hard to do for some of you Democrats. It may really be hard. If the Republicans pick up 50 seats, it’s iffy. Seventy-five seats or more and you can pretty much guarantee yourself Obama in trouble in 2012. You get Hillary on the ballot in 2012 and you’re looking at potentially eight years more in the White House, rather than just four more with Obama. Vote with your feet, keep ’em on the coffee table November 2nd, or vote Republican. Reverse Operation Chaos. Or, another way to say it, Operation Clarity: Eight more years. Isn’t it time a woman in this country finally got what has long been denied her? And, in fact, it was the Obama campaign on the Democrat side leading the way. Now it’s get even with ’em time.


RUSH: If you’re just joining the program, a major announcement made by me in the first hour of the program today. Reverse Operation Chaos. Any Democrat who believes that Hillary Clinton would make a far better president than Barack Obama and will do more to save the Democrat Party from its plunge, any Democrat who believes that Hillary has been screwed and shafted out of her legitimate chance to be president during the campaign of 2008, any Democrat who believes that the only way the party can recover from the upcoming loss of a supermajority in the House and potentially a big majority in the Senate, any Democrat who believes that those things are on tap must stay home. Operation Reverse Chaos.

If you believe Hillary Clinton is the future of the Democrat Party and would make a better president, then you must stay home on November 2nd and don’t vote. Any big turn out of Democrats will solidify the Democrat Party as Obama’s party and will forever, once and for all, officially end Hillary Clinton’s rightful, God-given quest to be president of the United States. Many Democrats — and I talk to ’em out there. Many Democrats believe that Hillary Clinton would be a much stronger candidate for president in 2012, that Hillary Clinton would not lose as many seats in the House of Representatives and the Senate as Obama will lose. But a strong turnout for Democrats on November 2nd will solidify Obama’s place in the party as the head of that party going forward, and Hillary Clinton will essentially officially be sent out to pasture.

There is no way that Mrs. Clinton could run for the nomination in 2012 with a strong showing for Obama in the midterm elections in 2010. Hillary Clinton’s future, as much as Obama’s and the Democrat Party at large, will, in all likelihood, be determined by the elections on November 2nd. Very simple. The Democrats are gonna choose which horse they want to ride in 2012 by either turning out for Obama or not. Operation Reverse Chaos. If you Democrats care about your party, if you want to make it right for Hillary Clinton, you will stay home and not vote on November 2nd. Or, even better, you will show up and vote Republican. If the Republicans get 50 seats in the House, it’s no deal for Hillary. Seventy-five seats, now we’re talking.

Seventy-five seats, north of 75 seats, it’s Hillary’s if she wants it in 2012. Speaking of the Clintons: ‘Former President Clinton singled out Karl Rove and the ‘secret committees’ for causing a ‘crazy food fight’ that’s confusing voters during a rally for Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D). ‘They’re banking on you not thinking,’ the former president said at the event on Federal Hill in Baltimore. ‘They’re banking on some people being so mad that facts don’t matter.’ The Republicans’ ‘only hope,’ Clinton said, ‘is that on Election Day in 12 days, tomorrow’s America, the America that showed up in 2008, will stay home. And yesterday’s America will show up and people will be so mad, it won’t be like sports, we won’t be thinking, the facts won’t have nothing to do with it.”

Here is Clinton in effect, very cleverly, joining me in Reverse Operation Chaos. If you read between the lines here, look at Clinton. ‘The Republicans’ only hope,’ what he means is Hillary’s only hope, ‘is that on Election Day in 12 days, tomorrow’s America, the America that showed up in 2008, will stay home.’ He wants you to stay home. He wants you to think he’s talking about Republicans, but he’s not. He’s talking about Democrats. ‘Yesterday’s America.’ In Clinton’s lingo, that is Republicans. ‘Yesterday’s America will show up and people will be so mad, it won’t be like sports, we won’t be thinking. The facts won’t have nothing to do with it.’ That’s gobbledygook; it doesn’t make any sense. That’s something David Brooks could have written. I know how to read the stitches on a fastball. I know how to read between the lines.

Bill Clinton is essentially ensuring big Republican turnout by saying that people like you and people like me are has-beens, we’re old-fashioned, we’re antiques, we’re obsolete, we represent the old America — when in fact we know that that’s true. We want to turn back the clock a year and a half. We’d love to turn back the clock politically 20 years, back to the eighties. And Clinton knows this is what we want to do. Reverse Operation Chaos: Even the Clintons are on board. Make no mistake: Mrs. Clinton wants to be president. Make no mistake that Bill wants her to be president. That way, he’s gonna know where she is every night. Make no mistake: They both want to get back in there. Make no mistake: They see a golden opportunity.

It is very rare that a president with this popularity, with this much of an electoral victory in his presidential year loses this many seats. This, the Clintons, see as a dynamic opportunity. That’s right. Exactly right. While others are texting, I am subtexting. I, ladies and gentlemen, am reading the stitches on the fastball, reading between the lines, a step ahead, on the cutting edge. Bill Clinton talking about the dangers of foreign money? What Bill Clinton is saying is: ‘Vote Republican! Hillary’s political career depends on it.’ That’s what Bill Clinton is saying. Anonymous donors Clinton’s talking about? Talk about people not thinking and facts not mattering? He’s just trying to confuse everybody.

Reverse Operation Chaos, November 2nd. Democrats, stay home. It’s the only way to save your party from its own Armageddon, being brought about by Barack Obamadinejad. Mrs. Clinton. You know she got screwed politically. You know she got shafted. You know the deck was stacked against her. You know that it was entitled to her, this presidential win. You know, everybody knows, it was hers. Obama didn’t even expect to win but they didn’t figure on the press going all in for the historical aspect of the first black president. The Clintons. They want what is theirs. They want what is theirs as they defined what is theirs when they were both at Yale all those years ago. Reverse Operation Chaos November 2nd. The real October Surprise out in the open, in full view.


RUSH: Gary in Minneapolis, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.

CALLER: Yeah, honor to speak with you, Rush.

RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.

CALLER: Say, I hate to rain all over your parade, but Hillary is not going to be considered for anything in 2012. Maybe the vice presidency, she might get in on that but she’s not gonna get in on anything else because if that would happen, Obama would be out, they’d totally alienate the black vote, which is their biggest voting bloc, they’d lose it all because they would not vote. And I don’t know what would happen, but I’ll tell you what, he’s going to be the Democratic nominee in 2012, and, who knows, he might win again because he gets out the black vote and all the other weirdos out there, the naive people that don’t look beyond —

RUSH: You’re forgetting something on this.

CALLER: What’s that?

RUSH: That is before Obama actually was put forth as a candidate by the media and before President Obama actually entered the race himself, Hillary had the black vote tied up, she had it locked up. I mean every black voter that’s gonna vote for Obama would have voted for Hillary. And they’ll do it again.

CALLER: She had ’em because he wasn’t there. But after he come in there, where do they all go? Right to him. What do you think they’re going to feel like if she takes him away from them?

RUSH: Gary, do you have a 13-year-old son named Zach?


RUSH: Okay.

CALLER: Are you talking about that kid you were talking about?

RUSH: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

CALLER: Yeah, I tell you, I couldn’t wait ’til that got over with.

RUSH: Well, thank you. (laughing) Thanks.

CALLER: Listen, I nearly threw the phone out the window here.

RUSH: Glad you hang on out there to tell us about the black vote and Hillary. I never thought of that. I figure once the Democrats have a nominee the black vote’s going to be there.

CALLER: Oh, right, but she won’t have it, if she takes their guy away, what do you think they’re going to do? They’re gonna stay home in droves, ‘cause they’re not gonna care. You took their guy away.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: And, if they don’t have the black vote, they all vote Democratic no matter what, but they vote more Democratic when they — look at Marion Berry —

RUSH: No, no, no, they can’t vote more Democrat than they already do. They’re already at 92% in presidential elections. Gary, thanks for the call.

Christine in Manhattan, Kansas. We’ll try you. Welcome to the program.

CALLER: Hello.


CALLER: Thank you for serving our country the way you do —

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: — and blessings on your marriage.

RUSH: Thank you very, very much.

CALLER: A couple of weeks ago you had read two articles by two different women, and I’m sorry I didn’t pay attention to write down who they were, but the first article is the one I’m referring to, and it had to do with the female candidates and that sort of thing, but the first article, early on, it made reference to — and I’m paraphrasing — but conservative as well as liberal women are disappointed in what we have gotten in Obama. And my rebuttal to that was, speaking as a conservative woman, I’m not disappointed at all in what I have gotten in Obama. In fact, he’s exactly what I expected, and in some areas he’s even exceeded my expectations. So it was just sort of a comment to that writer, and I fail to remember her name —

RUSH: Well, wait a minute. What you’re saying is when you say you weren’t disappointed, you really weren’t surprised.

CALLER: Well, true.

RUSH: Because you knew what —

CALLER: I was disappointed to find out I was correct in what I was thinking.

RUSH: Oh, my God, you’ve gotta get over that. I am never disappointed to find out I’m right. Never. Why would you do that?

CALLER: As always, you’re correct. My point is this, you know, it didn’t really surprise me, and so I don’t know who these conservative women were that she was referring to, but he’s actually exceeded our expectations in some respects.

RUSH: Well, in a manner of speaking.

CALLER: Unfortunately.

RUSH: By the way, I want to go back to the guy who denied being the father of the 13-year-old caller, Zach, Gary. He denied it. He didn’t offer any proof. He just denied it. We have to accept it that he wasn’t Zach’s father. But he says the black vote, if Hillary becomes the nominee, he says basically that Reverse Operation Chaos won’t work. People forget Hillary Clinton was the first black first lady of this country. She’s always going to be able to hang her hat on that.


RUSH: Operation Reverse Chaos, or Reverse Operation Chaos, the Democrat Party at a crossroads. No party wants to see itself destroyed. Barack Obama is destroying the Democrat Party. I mean how in the world do you go from a supermajority in the House of Representatives, 60 votes in the Senate, to one of the biggest potential landslide defeats when you entered the White House as essentially a messiah? You know it and I know it that Democrats around the country are livid, scratching their heads, “How can this be?” and they’re asking themselves, “Did it have to be this way?” and many of them are realizing it didn’t have to be this way. It could have been Hillary. Hillary got jobbed. This nomination was Hillary’s, and then an articulate, clean black guy came along that the press happened to love more than they loved Hillary, and the rest is history.

The Clintons are not happy with this. They were basically aced out. But now they haven’t lost their ambition, their desire. They want back in there and many of their supporters do, too. Therefore, Reverse Operation Chaos. Either Obama or Hillary is gonna control this party, and it’s going to be determined on how the Democrats do on November 2nd. If you think Hillary got jobbed and if you think Hillary deserves to be president, to run this party, the Democrat Party, you owe it to yourself to stay home, or vote Republican. For example, in Kentucky, vote Rand Paul, particularly in that race. I mean Democrats in that race are embarrassing the party left and right. It’s hard to embarrass Democrats; in that race they’re doing it. And I just want you to remember, remember what they did to your girl. Remember what they did to Hillary Clinton during the 2008 campaign.

WRIGHT: Hillary never had to worry about being pulled over in her car as a black man driving in the wrong — I am sick of Negroes who just do not get it. Hillary was not a black boy raised in a single parent home. Barack was. Barack knows what it means to be a black man living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people! Hillary can never know that. Hillary ain’t never been called a nigger. Hillary has never had her people defined as nonpersons. Hillary ain’t had to work twice as hard just to get accepted by the rich white folk who run everything or to get a passing grade when you know you are smarter than their C students sitting in the White House. Hillary ain’t never had her own people say she wasn’t white enough.

RUSH: You remember this now. You remember what they did to your girl. You remember how they mistreated Hillary Clinton, during the 2008 presidential run. And then they did this.

WRIGHT: Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill have been good to us. No, he ain’t. Bill did us just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.

RUSH: The Reverend Jeremiah Wright from 2007. This is what the Obama campaign was doing to Hillary during her entitled presidential run. Two years ago, Barack Obamadinejad was a messiah; today, just a mess.

Hillary said during the campaign, Monday, March 30th, 2008: ‘No, no, there’s nothing to Obama being a Muslim, as far as I know.’ She knew. She was starting to sow the doubts even before the Republicans were. She was asked about the polls showing doubt about whether Obama was a Muslim. Very artful statement. ‘No, no, there’s nothing to base that on,’ Hillary said, ‘as far as I know.’


RUSH: South Portland, Maine. This is Bill. Great to have you, sir, on the EIB Network.

CALLER: Mega dittos, Rush. You turned me from a lib to a conservative.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: Now, I’m gonna take you to the woodshed. I say no to Reverse Operation Chaos, and let me explain why, please. I do not want Hillary Clinton getting any kind of an advantage because she is as bad as Obama. Just a little bit slicker. And we don’t want her in 2012.

RUSH: Well, we may not, but Reverse Operation Chaos is about what the Democrats want.

CALLER: Well, so why are we playin’ to them? We have to crush ’em. It’s like the great man says, Mark Levin: ‘You don’t compromise with evil. You crush it.’

RUSH: Well, that’s exactly what’s going on here.

CALLER: Yeah, but, Rush, in ’08 you ran Operation Chaos trying to keep Obama out, and guess what happened? He hit.

RUSH: Well, the purpose (crosstalk). No, no, no, wait a second, wait a second. The purpose of Operation Chaos was not to keep Obama out. You do not understand the purpose of Operation Chaos. And I — you may then not understand the purpose of Reverse Operation Chaos. Right now, George Soros is trying to figure out who does he have to pay to get me fired. He can’t. He’d have to find a way to pay me to fire myself. That’s what Soros is trying to do. But your theory here, this is like paying the Taliban to take on Al-Qaeda. This is not what we’re trying to do here. It will become clear as the days unfold before your very eyes.

Jim in Ft. Lauderdale on Open Line Friday. Welcome, sir.

CALLER: Thank you, Rush, for taking my call.

RUSH: You bet.

CALLER: When I called you back in August, I predicted this, Rush. She has to be. This man is a complete, complete disaster for the country. The Democrats that I do speak to in Boca and that area —

RUSH: Wait, wait.


RUSH: The Democrats want a disaster for the country. This is —

CALLER: No, no, no. They’re not going to let you do this. She’s gonna get sick, some lame excuse that the Democrats pull every time. He’s going to pull out. He cannot — he cannot… The man is an incompetent. He does not have the ability. He’s way, way over his head, Rush.

RUSH: Whoa!

CALLER: He’s over his head.

RUSH: Over his head? I would love to have been as successful in 20 months doing what I wanted to do as Obama has been.

CALLER: But the people are not behind him.

RUSH: He doesn’t care!

CALLER: The train is coming of off the tracks. I’m talking the left and the right.

RUSH: He doesn’t care.

CALLER: The media is even saying it.

RUSH: He doesn’t care!

CALLER: No way. This guy is out of control. They’re even realizing it.

RUSH: He doesn’t care whether the people are behind him. He knows. He’s happy that they’re not behind him! Obama looks through that teleprompter every day, and whatever he sees besides the words, he sees a roiled and upset American public, and he goes, ‘That’s exactly what I want.’ I can see, ladies and gentlemen, that much teaching remains. Much instruction and patience on my part is called for.

James, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, welcome to the EIB Network.

CALLER: Hello, Rush. It’s an honor to speak with you.

RUSH: Thank you, sir.

CALLER: Hey, listen, I have a different theory on who the Democrats are gonna nominate for president next time. And it’s a military guy, he’s black, he was tricked by the Bush administration, he can get praised for changing parties, and he can say the Republican Party isn’t big enough for him because he’s a black candidate. What do you think it is?

RUSH: You obviously are talking about General Powell.

CALLER: That’s right.

RUSH: You think the Democrats will nominate General Powell rather than re-nominate President Obama?

CALLER: Well, it’s a theory. You know.

RUSH: Yeah. Well, what makes you think…? You think General Powell would change parties first?

CALLER: Why not? I mean, what’s he got to lose? You know, and, you know, last time it was considered as I recall it was his wife didn’t want him to run.

RUSH: Wait a minute, now. That’s a good question. I would posit that the press loves him more — he knows this — as a Republican than if he became a Democrat.

CALLER: Yeah, but if he becomes a Democrat, he’s found redemption now. He’s not a Republican anymore.

RUSH: No. No. No, no. He’s more valuable to the press as somebody sabotaging the Republican Party as a Republican than joining the mix as a Democrat.

CALLER: Well, you’ve got a point.

RUSH: I don’t think General Powell’s wife has changed her mind about him running, either. She didn’t want him running at all, and I don’t think that he does. But we know that Mrs. Clinton does. I mean, she’s still dreaming about it. She still sees herself sitting there in the Oval Office. There’s no question about it. And so does Bill, same thing.

Sharon, St. Augustine, Florida. Open Line Friday. You’re next. Hello.

CALLER: Hey, Rush.

RUSH: Hey.

CALLER: A little nervous because I’m talking to the king of radio and conservatism. (chuckles) But as a senior citizen I just can’t wait to get Obama’s $250 check so I can send it to my local Tea Party so they can oust him out of there.

RUSH: (laughs) Your cost of living adjustment increase that you otherwise wouldn’t get?

CALLER: Right. They say that there is no cost of living right now, you know, raising. And so, you know, Congress is getting their raises, but we’re not, and if you go and price all of the food in the food market they’re about three or four ounces less. They charge the same but they’re taking the ounces down, and rents have gone up and so forth. So I was just glad to take that 250 and put it to a good place.

RUSH: Well, I know this is the Great Recovery that has been spawned by Obama’s marvelous economic policies. Thanks, Sharon, for the phone call. I appreciate it.
