RUSH: I watched something fascinating last night. You know, my brother has got a book out. The name of the book is The Great Destroyer. And it is a compendium of virtually everything Obama has done and said that gives away who he is and what’s ahead and in store for us if he’s reelected.

David was to appear on Hannity last night, which he did. But Hannity led off with a focus group from somewhere in Wisconsin with Frank Luntz. And I watched that with my mouth wide open. Did you see that? Any of you see this? Ho-ho. Ho-ho-ho-ho, folks. If this is the best Luntz could do, I’m just gonna tell you… No, I ought to not say this. You’re supposed to get a focus group that’s a cross-section of the state, that is representative of a whole bunch of demographic and ideological-type breakdowns.

But I swear, 80% of these people were union people, and they didn’t care what fact was thrown at them. It didn’t matter. “Walker’s gotta go!” He could be Jesus Christ, they could be devout Catholics, and he’s gotta go. It was the most incredible thing. I found it difficult to believe this was actually a cross-section of the population of Wisconsin. These people were as brain-dead as any. They were programmed partisans.

No matter what they were hit with, the answer was, “Well, Walker doesn’t care about us.” And, “He just did that to make it look good, but it really isn’t any better. Our taxes really haven’t come down. They’re just saying that. And the unemployment rate hasn’t really come down. They’re just saying that. And there are people losing their jobs. That’s a lie. Walker is firing people.”

None of it’s true.

It was the most… You talk about a partisan divide? It illustrated why there’s no compromise with this, folks. There’s just defeat. There wasn’t a person in that focus group who was opposed to Scott Walker who could have been reached with the truth. If Moses had personally delivered the Ten Commandments last night, they wouldn’t have believed it. They would have thought it was a Scott Walker “trick.” They’ve been programmed to think this by their unions and so forth.

It was classic.

There’s no compromise with these people.

There is no middle ground.

There’s no great, independent middle and no way to reach across the aisle.

These people, the ones I saw, were a combination of hatred, obstinance, stubbornness, ignorance, and total resistance to anything factual. And you can hear it. We have lots of stuff. I want to play the David sound bite, ’cause this is quite telling. My brother, talking about his book, actually said… ‘Cause he wrote the book; he wrote it in 5-1/2 months. You know, when you write a book and you go on TV to talk about it, it’s tough to remember everything, even in your own book when you wrote it.

So he went back and reviewed his own book and outlined it to get ready for some of these interviews, and he had forgotten how bad it was even though he wrote it! Here’s how he described that. Hannity said, “I almost call the book ‘encyclopedic’ because it’s chapter and verse on Obama’s presidency. I found there was so much I forgot about Obama. Do you think people forget?’

DAVID LIMBAUGH: No question. We’ve almost become numb to it because there’s such an overwhelming amount of evidence of the things that he’s done. This is almost humorous. When I finished writing the book I had probably 12,000 articles and 57 folders. I’m not exaggerating. It was overwhelming. I wrote the book in 5-1/2 months; went through the editing process. Then I started reading it and preparing for these interviews, and I was overwhelmed reading it again! There is so much that he’s done.

RUSH: He was overwhelmed. He wrote the book and he couldn’t believe all that was in it. He couldn’t believe how much stuff there was. It’s impossible to remember it all. I probably come as close to anybody doing that as anybody else out there.


RUSH: You know, my brother is my brother, and you would expect me to be upbeat and positive about the book, but I’m gonna tell you something: What he said is true. He gives, in this book… Again, the title of the book is The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic. But if you just search “The Great Destroyer” on Amazon or Barnes & Noble or wherever, it’ll turn up. He gives 150 reasons why Obama needs to go — which is amazing, because off the top of my head, I can only come up with 140.

And that’s the beauty of the book.

Do you ever run into people like the ones I saw on that Hannity show last night, the Frank Luntz focus group? I’ll bet you do. I know how frustrating it is. I run into ’em now and then, too. But I bet you run into ’em constantly. It’s like talking to brick walls. But if you want to have at your fingertips, from start to present, everything that Obama has done, said, or proposed that we oppose — that frightens us, that lets everybody who doesn’t know what’s going on know where this country’s headed — this book has it in one place.

Hannity called it “encyclopedic.” That’s good. It’s a compendium as well. It’s footnoted out the wazoo. All the sources are there for this thing. It really is like a handbook, except it’s full-fledged hardcover size. It’s like a handbook of everything that you would need at your disposal. It’s like even after you read it, there’s so much, you’re going to forget all of it. You’ll have to have the book nearby for reference purposes. That’s how chocked-full it is.
