OBAMA: You’ve got a business, you didn’t build that! Somebody else made that happen!
RUSH: See, I know he stuck that in there right when I’m talking about what we built.

If Reagan hadn’t gotten rid of the Fairness Doctrine, none of this woulda happened. That’s exactly right. That’s what the left will say. That’s what they say. Oh, yeah!

OBAMA: You didn’t build that! Somebody else made that happen!
RUSH: Right. See, I’ve never done anything on my own. Nothing that I did here has had anything to do with the success of the program. First it was Reagan and the Fairness Doctrine; then Clinton got elected, and that’s all it took. And that’s why we’ve succeeded.
