RUSH: I just had something pointed out to me, ladies and gentlemen. There’s a recent New York Times Magazine article, 8,000 words on Barack Obama’s economic plan. There is this paragraph in that story. Seriously now. If you think what he said about China was over the top, try this. Quote, Obama: ”If you talk to Warren [Buffett], he’ll tell you his preference is not to meddle in the economy at all — let the market work, however way it’s going to work, and then just tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it. That way you’re not impeding efficiency, and you’re achieving equity on the back end.’ He continued by saying that he thought there was some merit in Buffett’s argument.’ That’s called communism and socialism. Well, not entirely. The communists never left the market alone. But nevertheless, here’s another campaign ad for McCain: ‘Just tax the heck out of people,’ Barack Obama, New York Times Magazine, and put the date. ‘Just tax the heck out of people, and redistribute it on the back end.’
Just tax! So he loves China. He blames United States for being like Russia, going into Iraq, like Georgia. This guy is hilarious, and he is a doofus, and he’s a man-child out of his league, but he’s dangerous. He is not an educated person on the principles that founded and propelled this country to greatness. He does not have the slightest understanding of them. By the way, as for Buffett, I don’t see Buffett giving all his money that he earns away at the end of every year. I don’t. Buffett can. I know he’s a big pro-death tax guy, but I don’t see him giving away all his money at the end of the year so people like Obama can redistribute it and make things equitable on the, quote, unquote, ‘back end.’ A fundamental lack of understanding — or worse, his fundamental disagreement with — the American way is scary, and it’s profound at the same time.
McCain has a new messiah ad. They’ve updated the messiah ad with Web video. It’s a Web ad. They now have pictures of Obama swimming and surfing in Hawaii, and they have included the Tim Kaine, The Eyebrow audio where he says The Messiah ended the Russia-Georgia war.
ANNOUNCER: A worldwide sensation. Millions of views, sparking the flames of the faithful. And now The One returns to lead us on the road to Denver.
OBAMA: This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal!
HESTON: Behold his mighty hand!
CROWD: Obama! Obama! Obama!
BRYNNER: So let it be written…
ANNOUNCER: His hand guides the world.
KAINE: And I’m very, very happy that the senator’s request for a ceasefire has been complied with by President Medvedev.
ANNOUNCER: In Denver, you will see the light.
BRYNNER: So let it be written, so let it be done!
ANNOUNCER: He may be The One, but is he ready to lead? No.
RUSH: We also know, ladies and gentlemen, that Obama very sensitive about the Paris Hilton and Britney Spears ad referring to him as a celebrity. The North Carolina mistress went on a mission yesterday. She went to a newsstand where she lives, and she sent me some pictures with her iPhone of at least seven different, maybe more, magazine covers with Obama and Michelle; from Ebony, to Jet, to Good Housekeeping. I’ll bet you Michelle and Barry this month are on more magazine covers than Paris and Britney combined. You should check it out. If you ever go to newsstands and look at these magazines, you’ll see Obama and Michelle everywhere, and they’ve cultivated this! This is why it bothers them. There’s a McCain celebrity ad now on taxes. This is a 30 and this is the audio.
ANNOUNCER: Celebrities don’t have to worry about family budgets. But we sure do. We’re paying more for food and gas, making it harder to save for college, retirement. Obama solution? Higher taxes, called a recipe for economic disaster. He’s ready to raise your taxes, but not ready to lead.
MCCAIN: I’m John McCain, and I approved this message.
RUSH: So it really doesn’t matter how many houses McCain has. He’ll cut your taxes and Obama will raise them, while emulating China, admiring all these regimes. Oh, this is just… What a day this has been.
