RUSH: Last night I was watching television. I was zipping around. I very rarely do this. I have better things to do at night than watch cable TV. But I was zipping around, and I came across a segment on Hardball. We’ve got the audio sound bites. I don’t even know if I’m going to play ’em. I just want to summarize it for you. They did a whole segment on Operation Chaos, refusing — and I think this is purposeful, by the way — to explain it properly. To them it’s all about getting Hillary nominated. They were very praiseworthy. Mike Barnicle called me ‘a great entertainer,’ ‘a great American entertainer,’ but they were doing that in a way to deflect any relevance of Operation Chaos. It makes me… I’ve stated the purpose of Operation Chaos countless times here. I’ve stated the origin of Operation Chaos a number of times, and they refuse to get it. I imagine we got a huge tune-in factor today because let me state it again very briefly, real quickly. Operation Chaos. The idea for it actually came when I heard a McCain campaign worker say that they were not going to be critical of Obama.
A campaign worker said he would quit the McCain campaign if he was told to do ads critical of Obama. Now, at this time — this is before Texas and Ohio — Obama is running away with this; and if he wins Texas and Ohio, Mississippi, he puts her away — and it’s over, and there’s no way the superdelegates are going to be talked out of supporting him. So Operation Chaos was born primarily for the purpose assuming Obama was going to be the nominee at the get go of this. He needs to be bloodied up politically since McCain is not going to do it. Since the Republican Party is not going to be on the field in this way, somebody’s gotta bloody up Obama. The only person that can do it is Hillary, and she can’t do it if she’s not in the race — and so the purpose was Operation Chaos was to keep her in the race and to have her bloody up Obama in the process of staying in the race. I’m talking about politically.
And, lo and behold, it’s happened. This is the crucible of chaos. Look at what Operation Chaos has forged. Mrs. Clinton now is threatening to obliterate Iran. She says she gonna break up OPEC. She wants to hold the money brokers responsible for the alleged recession. She says she gonna renege on NAFTA. She’ll take what she calls the excess profits from Big Oil. And she’s going to do all that while hunting and downing shots of Crown Royal followed by a beer. None of that, not one of these Clinton promises would exist were it not for Operation Chaos. The train would not have come off the tracks of the Obama campaign, were it not for Operation Chaos. The Jeremiah Wright stuff and all that, yes, that would have happened, but nothing could have done anything about it because Mrs. Clinton would have been effectively out of the race, not able to mount a campaign. So we’d be in a far different spot today than we were so the purpose of this is to keep this going — exactly what’s happened.
And not only do we have chaos in the Democrat ticket and the Democrat race and the Democrat race; we’ve got chaos in the Drive-By Media. Chaos has sprung up all over this campaign. That was the objective, and I need to issue a sincere thanks to all of you commandos, volunteers, and operatives for one hell of a job. I know how hard this has been for those of you to go out there and follow orders and actually vote for a Clinton. You have had to trust me that I know what I’m doing here and that that will not end up harming you or us, and I appreciate this trust that you have invested in me, your commander-in-chief.
