RUSH: Yesterday WJR radio Detroit, John Dingell, the senior Democrat in the House of Representatives.

DINGELL: Paul W. (Smith), we’re not ready to be doing it, but let me remind you, this has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

RUSH: To put the legislation together to control the people. This vindicates everything I and my colleagues have been saying about this health care bill since its inception. It’s going to take a long time to control the people. John Dingell, the most senior Democrat in the House of Representatives. It’s going to take long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people. Guess what? Obama’s out there touting the fact that as of now, children with preexisting conditions are covered. They forgot to include it in the bill. It is not there. They’re going to have to go back and fix it somehow. They left it out. Now, the point of this is pure incompetence. They’re out touting all of these wonderful things in the bill and preexisting condition coverage for kids, it’s not there.

The Associated Press has it: ‘Administration officials are now scrambling to fix a gap in highly touted benefits for children. Obama made better coverage for children a centerpiece of his health care remake, but it turns out the letter of the law provided a less-than-complete guarantee that kids with health problems would not be shut out of coverage.’ Now, if he cares so damn much about the kids, how did this happen? The point of this is, if this is a major thing to them and they screw this up, these are the people that are going to be writing a hundred thousand additional pages of regulations to go along with the health care bill that’s already 3,000 pages. We’re dealing with strict, utter, total incompetence, folks. This is why I was asking for the longest time, who the hell is this guy to run health care? What’s Barack Obama ever done but learn Saul Alinsky? What’s Barack Obama ever done but learn what he doesn’t like about this country? But what has he ever run? What has he ever done in the private sector or the government sector that’s ever worked? It’s an absolute mess.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

DINGELL: Paul W., we’re not ready to be doing it, but let me remind you, this has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

RUSH: Now, I am told that Congressman Dingell has called WJR today (that comment was made yesterday) and said that he was just tired. It’s been a long, hard slog here to get this thing. He was just ‘tired.’ So he’s trying to walk this back. Sorry. When you’re tired is when your guard’s down is when you say what you really mean, sort of like when you’re drunk the truth somehow comes out. So it’s on the record and we’re going to accept it. Shocking story from Philadelphia: Homeowners are committing suicide ahead of being evicted from their homes. Now, if this were happening during a Republican presidency, the vicious left would use this sad story to attack any Republican president, as would the media. The vicious left uses people as props.

They’ve been doing it all this week and all last week, but I wonder if the despair that these poor people felt is in some way the responsibility of the failed policies of the left in the White House. The White House promised these people they would not lose their homes. The White House promised these people there would be relief against foreclosure. Or does it just cut one way? Is it only Republicans who are responsible for the actions that people take, but somehow Democrats and the media and the left — because of their wonderful compassion — have no role in people committing suicide because they’re being evicted from their homes in Philadelphia when they clearly believe President Obama would make that not happen to them?

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Let’s not forget yesterday, Congressman Dingell on with Paul W. Smith at WJR in Detroit answering a question, ‘Why does it take so long for all of this good stuff to implement in the health care bill.’

DINGELL: Paul W., we’re not ready to be doing it, but let me remind you, this has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

RUSH: To control the people. He says today he was just tired. Yeah, too tired to censor himself. The truth will out. It’s gonna take us a long time, big administrative thing here to put it together, Paul W. To control the people.
