RUSH: Well, get this. You know, Obama once thought there were 57 states in the United States? He signed the guest book at Westminster Abbey and placed a wreath at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior there. He said, “It is a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage and common sacrifice,” and he wrote the date underneath that passage to commemorate his trip. You know what date he wrote? “24 May 2008.” 2008 is three years ago. Now, you can say what you want, Snerdley, about Herman Cain, but he knows what year it is. Obama thinks it’s 2008! He wrote that. How do you do that? How do you think it’s 2008? What is on your mind when you’re writing, “It’s a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage and common sacrifice” in the guest book at Westminster Abbey?
Maybe this is what he means by “leading from behind.” Maybe he wants history to know he was there in 2008 and is responsible for all that’s happened since. Maybe he was trying to pull a fast one on everybody. Or maybe he thinks he’s still in campaign mode. Maybe he thinks it’s… Well, we know he’s campaigning. That’s what the stop in Ireland was all about. That’s what the stop in Europe is all about. And, by the way, he finally came up at a class gift for the Queen: A nice leather bound pictorial display of her parents’ visits to the United States — King George VI, about whom the movie The King’s Speech was made, and her mother, the Queen Mum, Queen Elizabeth. (interruption) It was, it’s classy. Somebody obviously was hired to come up with an idea for a gift for Queen Elizabeth. But there’s Obama: 57 states and signed the date today in the guest book at Westminster Abbey: 24 May 2008.
I’m open for suggestions on how this coulda happened and what must have been in his mind.
RUSH: You know, if Sarah Palin had thought this was 2008, Katie Couric would have stormed the CBS anchor desk last night and tried to take over the news just to report it. No, seriously. If Reagan or Palin thought it was three years ago? They’re making excuses for Obama, he’s jet lagged, he was tired, any number of things.
You gotta listen to this sound bite. This is F. Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie. They’re on MSNBC Daily Rundown this morning. Cohost F. Chuck, traveling with the Obamas and reported where the Obamas slept last night in London.
TODD: Apparently Mr. and Mrs. Obama are staying in the same room that Kate and Will stayed in the night after they got married. I’m just saying.
GUTHRIE: What’s your point?
TODD: Now nobody will confirm if it’s the same bed —
GUTHRIE: What’s your point, Chuck? (laughing)
TODD: — but they are staying in the same room. Why palace officials decided to give us that detail I don’t know. Because they know at heart we’re all 13-year-olds when we get information like that.
GUTHRIE: Exactly, but, you know, on your wedding night, you’re so tired.
RUSH: Wow. Ho-ho-ho-ho. Savannah Guthrie telling the world that she was so tired on her wedding night. That’s what that means. Did you catch F. Chuck? There was a lot of crosstalk. He said nobody will confirm if it’s the same bed that the president and Michelle (My Belle) stayed in, but it was the same room. And then F. Chuck says, yeah, you know, we all turn into 13-year-olds with stories like this, and Savannah Guthrie, yeah, but, you know, on your wedding night you’re so tired. (laughing)
