RUSH: Are you kidding me? Hillary Clinton has gone to Peru? Is that not great? I mean, just get outta Dodge. They’re dumping all over her, they’re throwing her under the bus, they’re throwing Bill under the bus, and she decamps to Peru in the middle of all this?
So Obama’s cramming for the next debate at a golf resort, but they didn’t let him take his clubs. I mean, that’s torture. That’s like taking somebody to a whorehouse and moving all the women out. They took him to a golf resort and didn’t let him take his clubs. Now, he could still go rent some if he wants to.
Anyway, I’m stuck here, folks. I’m getting confused. Is Obama blaming Hillary for his debate performance or is he… no, he’s blaming Hillary for foreign policy, for Benghazi, for lack of intel. Who did he blame for his bad debate performance? Oh, that’s it, John Kerry. He blamed John Kerry. He blames Bush for the economy. He blames John Kerry for the bad debate. He’s blaming Biden — no, they’re saying Biden won that debate, if you read it. Obama’s begging people: Read the transcript, you’ll see that Biden won it. Even Martha Raddatz, the second Democrat at the debate with Biden and Paul Ryan, said, (paraphrasing) “Well, Biden was just too big. He was just too big at the debate.” Meaning he was making too many noises. He was laughing too much. He was gesticulating too much. We got the audio sound bites coming up.
Everybody in the media, it’s funny, is begging, urging, advising Obama, “First thing out of your mouth on Tuesday night: 47%, you gotta hammer the 47%. That’s all you gotta say.” Michael Barone has a great column about this today at National Review Online. I’m setting the table here. This is all what’s coming up on the program today.
I also think, ladies and gentlemen, I think we need to start saying… I’m gonna start saying that I’m getting a little ticked off. Al-Qaeda’s spiking the football. Well, they’re picking off ambassadors. They’re picking off embassies, whatever they want, with impunity. They’re getting away with all kinds of mayhem. I think Ayman al-Zawahiri’s out there spiking the football. Obama was happy to hear the Republicans criticize him for spiking the football. Who’s really spiking the football is Al-Qaeda, if you want to get down to brass tacks.
F. Chuck Todd: “NBC says with a strong performance, Romney can effectively close out the election tomorrow night.” F. Chuck says he’s looked at polls, there’s some structural problems with the polls for Obama. F. Chuck’s been on this ever since his own poll, ever since a Wall Street Journal poll came out about a month ago that had a Democrat plus-25 sample or whatever it was that had Obama up everywhere except Mars, F. Chuck, “Yeah, I got some real problems with these polls; I’m just not sure I believe all this.” And he’s still talking about it, and he’s a good indication, there’s real concern, there’s real worry on the Democrat side that this is over.
You gotta be very careful with these people, because it wasn’t long ago they’re trying to depress everybody thinking it was over for Romney, and trying to dispirit you. It was just two weeks ago that all these polls said it’s over. Romney doesn’t have a prayer. Now it’s the other way around. Now it might be over for Obama. And the psycho games continue. We’ll put it all into perspective for you today.
Obama’s got a new campaign ad out with Morgan Freeman, and the ad, we got the audio coming up, the ad claims that few presidents have ever faced as many challenges as Obama has. Oh, get the violins out, get the Stradivarius out, get the tear-jerkers going. Oh, folks, nobody — nobody — could have fixed this. (Clinton impression) “That’s right, Limbaugh, I’m telling everybody, it’s so bad, not even I could have fixed this. And the first black president, second black, whatever the hell he is, he couldn’ta fixed it either. If I couldn’t, nobody could have. There’s no president dead or alive who coulda fixed it.” And here comes Morgan Freeman: “Few presidents have ever faced as many challenges as Obama has.” Now, that would be news to George W. Bush, who saw the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania wiped out, and a recession, 9/11 and a recession.
That would have been news to President Reagan, who inherited a worse recession than Obama did and still had to fight the communists, still had to fight the Cold War. Hell, Obama, he didn’t have to do that. And you can take it from there.
