RUSH: You want to hear disgusting? Vice President Bite Me was in Flint, Michigan. It’s audio sound bite number 27. He was at the downtown fire department. He spoke to firefighters about the American Jobs Act that the Senate, led by Harry Reid and the Democrats, failed to pass yesterday.
BIDEN: In 2008 when Flint had 265 sworn officers on the police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city. In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes, just to pick two categories, climbed to 229. In 2011 you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don’t rectify it. And God only knows what that number would have been had we not been able to get a little bit of help to you.
RUSH: So rapes and murders are increasing in Flint, Michigan, because the American Jobs Act was not passed by the Republicans. That’s Vice President Bite Me’s disgusting message to police officers and firefighters in Flint, Michigan. (imitating Biden) “Oh, yeah, rapes and murders, they’re climbing here ’cause we don’t have enough money to hire more of you here in Flint because the Republicans killed the stimulus bill.” Well, hey, who’s fearmongering now? Why don’t we come up with a stop rape bill? Isn’t that next? Obama needs to wave around a piece of paper and call it “The Stop Rape Bill.” The stop rapes in Flint bill and put that up for a vote. Since when did this become the province of the federal government anyway?
And for all of you in Flint, Michigan, who might have been familiar with what Vice President Biden just told you, it happened this morning in Flint, Michigan, let me just tell you that whatever jobs there were in this bill for firemen and police and teachers, they were for one year. They were for one year, and after that it would have been up to you in Flint to pay to keep them on the payroll. It was nothing more than a scam from the get-go, and it was never intended to pass, and it is disgusting for the vice president of the United States to head out to Flint, Michigan, and to blame rape and crime on Republicans not passing a bogus jobs bill that was never intended to be passed. The jobs bill was intended to be defeated so that Republicans would be blamed for it. It’s a campaign tactic. And who knew that higher taxes stopped rape anyway? ‘Cause that’s all this bill was.
RUSH: Has anybody ever considered that there might be so many rapes in Flint, Michigan, because there are so many Democrats there elected by Democrats? Anybody ever considered that? And, by the way, Detroit has the highest violent crime rate in the country. How high are their taxes? Remember this was a tax bill. This was not a jobs bill. What, is Biden gonna next go to Detroit and give us crime wave statistics and try to blame the fact that Republicans oppose the president’s jobs bill as the explanation? That’s disgusting. (New Castrati impression) “So are you, Mr. Limbaugh! It’s disgusting to say that rape is up in Flint, Michigan, simply because Democrats live there and vote for Democrats!” Right, it may be disgusting, but what other explanation could there be? You want to try to tell me it’s because some stupid piece of legislation that was never intended to pass, didn’t pass, that’s why there’s a higher crime rate, rape and all, murder in Flint?
Ever think Michael Moore might have something to do with it? He’s from there. He’s got all the answers.
