RUSH: This is Craig in Atlanta, another proud Tea Party S.O.B. Welcome to the EIB Network.
CALLER: Thank you, sir. This is a real honor.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: I’m gonna circle this date on my calendar speaking to you. Thank you.
RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.
CALLER: I wanted to tell you, I feel what has happened is the formula for the Democrats has been thrown up real loose. They don’t know what to do with the Tea Party, and it has
really caused problems. I mean, you’re talking about moderates. Well, the line has been drawn in the sand, and they’re trying to bend that line now — and they’re having a real problem. And I think November is a big, big problem, but they just don’t know what to do, and I have a feeling what’s gonna happen is the ticket, the Democrat ticket is going to change. Biden… If Obama won another four years, there’s no way Biden could carry that “progressive” flag of statism on. Hillary could, and I feel that Biden is gonna step down, be forced out or whatever, and Hillary is gonna jump in that because they’ve gotten to enliven the base. The base is dead for them, and Hillary would put a little life in that — and she could carry that progressive on, and I feel this has been done — this was done — before Obama became president in 2008, that there was a deal made and said, “Hey, you run the first eight years, and then Hillary will take up the next eight years.”
CALLER: And I feel that the —
RUSH: Well, I’ll tell you what. It’s an interesting theory that they’re gonna dump Bite Me and they’re gonna put Hillary in there as Obama’s running mate. It ain’t gonna matter because whoever it is is gonna lose. Either Sarah Palin’s gonna beat ’em or Mitt Romney is gonna beat ’em or Rick Perry’s gonna beat ’em, but they’re gonna lose. I don’t care what tricks they play. I don’t care who they put on the ticket. (interruption) Yeah, I know. I said yesterday it’s too early for everybody… (interruption) No, no. It’s too early to think that Obama can’t pull some rabbit out of his hat to try to change his fortunes. Yeah. You remember, now, the theory from yesterday was a Victor Davis Hanson piece: What if Obama all of a sudden comes out for tax cuts, corporate tax cuts, less regulation?
What if, for example, Obama tomorrow in his speech gives an amnesty period on all the trillions of dollars that foreign companies are keeping overseas? What if he allows the repatriation of that money tax-free, for example? Well, that would be, as far as we’re concerned, a good economic move — and it would just literally tick off his base like you can’t believe! It would of irritation. I mean, corporations? That’s like showing Dracula the cross. They hate ’em. What if he does that? What if he does that? That is going to inspire, it’s gonna motivate some businesses. They’re gonna be able to repatriate that cash that they’re keeping overseas because they don’t want it taxed at US rates, if there is an amnesty period to bring it back. Who knows?
As far as Hillary’s concerned, look at her. She’s tired. It doesn’t mean anything. I just think Hillary’s tired. By the way, the professor, that Tina was talking about was Stephen Carter, and it was May 27th. “Economic Stagnation Explained at 30,000 Feet” was his column, and I’ve got the link to it at RushLimbaugh.com. Koko, why don’t you go put that up there in the orange banner right now so people can we familiarize themselves with it. The date was May 27th, and it was Yale professor Stephen Carter, “Economic Stagnation Explained at 30,000 Feet.” Let’s see. Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba. I don’t know, but their tricks, you know, that can… (interruption) I’ve always said if the election were today, yeah, he’s landslidable. If the election were held today, Obama loses in a landslide — and, look, even F. Chuck Todd’s pollsters are concerned about it. I mean even they know it.
