RUSH: Yeah, here we are, great to be back here, folks. The news just isn’t the news when I’m not here to tell you about it. I had so many people send me e-mails last week and the first couple days this week: “You know, Rush, there’s a lot going on, but it just doesn’t seem like it’s actually going on without you here.” Folks, trust me, it was going on. It was happening. And I know it just doesn’t seem the same, but the news isn’t the news when I’m away. Because there isn’t any news anymore. It’s all agenda, propaganda, and all that.
Anyway, great to be back, great to be here back with you, folks. Telephone number, as always, if you want to be on the program, 800-282-2882. The e-mail address, ElRushbo@eibnet.com.
Forgive me, folks, but I’m being inundated with e-mail from people: “Can you believe Obama? Can you believe Obama appointing Susan Rice?” Yes, entirely, totally. What do you… rein it in, Rush. You’re just back here. Don’t irritate people right off the bat. Wait ’til the second hour to do that. Folks, we’re not gonna stop Obama from being Obama. And you gotta remember that everything you know about Susan Rice and Benghazi, over half the country doesn’t know. The low-information voters still don’t know about that, and they don’t care, and the name Samantha Power isn’t gonna mean beans to ’em.
Right now they’re focused on whether Kim Kardashian’s baby in the womb is a boy or a girl. And, by the way, did you hear what Kim Kardashian said about that? (imitating Kim) “Well, it can’t be a boy because we don’t see the pee-pee. You’d be able to see the pee-pee.” Meanwhile, Bruce Jenner, who is Kardashian’s stepfather, says (paraphrasing), “Ah, this West guy, you know, he’s never around.” Now, that’s the news that they’re following out there. But the fact that Susan Rice and Samantha Power… yeah, folks, it is a giant in-your-face to the Republicans, exactly what it is. That’s who President Obama is.
“Okay, you guys think that Rice is bad news. You think Samantha Power… Here, let me give ’em even more. What do you think of that, Mitch? What do you think of that, John?” That’s exactly what this is. That’s who Obama is. And there’s no amount of news attention, there’s no amount of analysis of what Rice did and who Samantha Power is. You know, she’s Mrs. Cass Sunstein, and you know who Cass Sunstein is. Cass Sunstein is the Harvard Law professor who arguably is the leader of this entire belief system that the Bill of Rights is anti-government and needs to be changed.
This Constitution is a charter of negative liberties because it doesn’t tell the government what they can do. He’s the architect of that thinking, arguably. Samantha Power is his wife. She’s very anti-Israel. Of course Obama is gouging the Republicans in the eyes with these two appointments. That’s who he is.
RUSH: Folks, let me explain. Susan Rice, I don’t care. I’d rather tell you what’s important down the road. The Susan Rice appointment, you’re supposed to be mad. Obama is relishing you getting mad. How dare he? The fact that this woman lied to the country and lied to the Republicans about Benghazi and he promotes her is exactly what he wants. James Carville’s out there even saying (impression), “Yeah, it’s an in-your-face appointment. He wanted her to be secretary of state, but the Republicans would never confirm her so this is what he’s doing, in-your-face, all right?”
He likes her. She is him. There’s nothing that’s gonna stop it. And the same thing with Samantha Power. These people are who they are. My point in all of this, there better be some stand-up push-back to some of this at some point, rather than just expressing outrage.
