RUSH: Well, the first linebacker is — ah, First Lady is on the campaign trail. Where was she? It’s from a website: White House Dossier. “In a chilling appraisal of President ObamaÂ’s Republican opposition, First Lady Michelle Obama Thursday suggested a Republican victory in the 2012 presidential election would result in curbs on freedom of speech and religion. Speaking at a fundraiser at a private residence in Tampa, Mrs. Obama noted the power of the president to appoint members of the Supreme Court. She clearly indicated that a Republican would select justices who would attack basic First Amendment rights, saying, ‘that’s what’s at stake’ in the election,” and there’s a “White House transcript: ‘Let’s not forget about what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices and for the first time in history, our daughters — and our sons — watched three women take their seats on our nation’s highest court.
“‘But more importantly, let’s not forget the impact those decisions will have on our lives for decades to come — on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever we choose. That is whatÂ’s at stake here.'” This is what you get when you can’t run on your husband’s economic record. This is what happens when you can’t run on your husband’s achievements because there aren’t any. This is what you get: “Republicans want dirty air. Republicans want dirty water. Republicans want fewer people alive,” and now, “Republicans don’t want you to be able to speak, and the Republicans don’t want you to be able to practice your religion.” This is what they have. This is what they’re worth. This is all they’ve got. They are morally bankrupt.
This is how they have to go out and raise funds. There is nothing, not one syllable from either Michelle Obama or Barack Obama or anybody in this campaign that’s inspiring or uplifting. They are happily presiding over and managing a country in decline — and the only ammunition in their arsenal is these never-ending lies about the Republicans want poisoned air and water, dirty air and water; nobody able to speak. It’s just breathtaking, to listen to this, to listen to absolutely how morally vacant they are — how unable they are to talk about anything positive or uplifting, including any of their own achievements, because there aren’t any.
