RUSH: I love this sound bite. I asked Cookie to give it back to me today just for my own entertainment. This is this past Monday, Obama, after what was called a ceremonial first pitch at the Washington Nationals game, then went out to the broadcast booth where he was asked by Rob Dibble to name his favorite Chicago White Sox players.
OBAMA: You know, uh, I thought that, uh, you know, the truth is that a lot of the Cubs I liked, too, uh, but I did not become a Sox fan until I moved to Chicago. Because I, uh, you know, I was growing up, uh, in Hawaii, and so I ended up actually being an Oakland A’s fan. But when I moved to Chicago, uh, I was living close to what was then Cominskey (sic) Park. And went to a couple games and just fell in love. And the nice thing about the Sox is it’s real blue-collar baseball.
RUSH: What the hell is blue-collar baseball and where was Cominskey Park? You know, Cominskey, that’s a Soviet name. It was Comiskey Park. This is the second or third time he’s mispronounced it. Does nobody have — somebody afraid to go to him and say, ‘Mr. President, it’s not the Cominskey Field, it’s Comiskey,’ or is he doing this on purpose, just toying around with people? Well, you know, he calls these military people ‘corpsemen’ when he’s being serious. What is a blue-collar baseball team? If there’s a blue-collar team in Chicago anywhere, it’s the Bears, of the National Football League. Anyway, that’s the leader of the regime, President Obama there, not having the slightest idea who plays for his favorite team.
