RUSH: Yeah, yeah, Sequester Soul Train. Yeah, yeah, I’m gonna get to that. Here we are again. Everybody has their favorite thing they want me to talk about. I can’t mention everything in the first five minutes. Well, I can mention it, but that’s all I can do. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Sequester Soul Train. I mean, here we are in the middle of the sequester — do you realize, folks, the Blue Angels have been grounded all year? This is the greatest PR for the Navy that there is, the Blue Angels, grounded for the whole year. The same thing with the Air Force Thunderbirds, grounded because of the sequester. I mean, we couldn’t find one of 126… “Well, it’s a defense budget cut.” I know, and they’re taking nonessential stuff, but make no mistake, they’re cutting things like that that people will notice to try to illustrate how mean and insensitive and cruel the budget cuts are.
Anyway, while all that’s going on, you’ve got the soul brothers express in the White House, some Memphis soul stew going on there last night. Jessica Biel, who is the bride of Justin Timberlake is tweeting (imitation), “I hugged POTUS! I hugged POTUS! I hugged POTUS!” She didn’t even send out a tweet, “I hugged my husband! I hugged my husband!” after they got married. But she’s tweeting she hugged POTUS. Anyway, I think it’s embarrassing, folks. You talk about conspicuous consumption and a display of it. I mean, it’s all part of the performances at the White House series, and it’s supposed to be cultural enrichment, but what it is is Obama jamming it down everybody’s throats.
We’ve got a country in decay, we have a dying country, and there’s the president partying down the day after — I still, ladies and gentlemen, I still can’t believe that the president of the United States actually said we’ve got to make it harder to gun down our kids. That is one of the most undignified, unpresidential utterances that I’ve heard from anyone, including Clinton (impression), “I didn’t have sex with that woman, not a single time, and I never asked anybody to lie, never.” And it all gets lumped in the same category. It’s just beneath the dignity of the office. “We’ve gotta make it harder to gun down our kids.” I don’t know, especially with some of the parents of kids at Sandy Hook elementary school standing there, flying around on Air Force One, the economy in the tank. I don’t know.
Did you see what Drudge tweeted? “POTUS chomping nicorette. Standing O for Lauper, who already looks deep into Obamacare. Now back to urgent gun control push, crying families.” I think that sums it up. That sums up the Obama charade very nicely. Drudge tweeted that out: “POTUS chomping nicorette. Standing O for Lauper, who already looks deep into Obamacare. Now back to urgent gun control push, crying families.”
RUSH: Listen to this. This is Christine Romans at CNN on Starting Point this morning talking to band leader Booker T. Jones about the sequester soul train at the White House last night.
ROMANS: Who was more star-struck, the president or all the performers?
JONES: The performers. (laughing) The performers were really excited. Everyone was really anxious to meet, not only the president, but the first family.
RUSH: Oh whoa, yeah, oh, yeah, meeting Obama is one thing, but we wanted to meet Moochelle. And they got it all done. Sequester Soul Train, White House last night.
