RUSH: Lynn in Meredith, New Hampshire, as we quickly and unexpectedly go back to the phones. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush.
CALLER: My goodness. This is a great day for me.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I was wondering what you thought of the childish and unprofessional remarks the president gave at the correspondents dinner about the Secret Service. And my thought on that is that… I don’t know. Here are these wonderful men and women willing to put down their lives for this president, and here he is mocking them about the scandal. And I haven’t heard too many people talking about that.
RUSH: In the old days at the White House correspondents dinner, the purpose of the presidential speech was to be self-deprecating. It’s where the president showed up and laughed at himself. That’s what they were. Obama shows up, this is a place to settle scores, to strike back, what have you. This night is supposed to be a night off. It hasn’t been for the longest time, which is why I don’t go. It’s not a night off. It’s the left continuing to be who they are with all the Republicans in there as willing dupes and circus acts. So I wasn’t surprised by what Obama said about that.
