RUSH: Here’s Rebecca in Plainwell, Michigan, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Well, hi, Rush! Yeah, I’d like to throw a couple of suggestions out before I get to my real question, and one of them is about President Obama and where he was on the night of Benghazi. I haven’t heard anybody put out there that, you know, maybe he was in one of those rooms doing “a little blow,” and maybe that’s why he was so anxious to shut the White House down. That’s that one.
RUSH: Now, there’s no evidence whatsoever on that.
CALLER: Well, it’s just fun. Just fun. Just for fun.
RUSH: Doing a big blow?
CALLER: “Doing a little blow.”
RUSH: A little blow.
CALLER: Like in his book he admitted he did “a little blow” growing up?
RUSH: I don’t think that’s happened since Clinton was there, but you may be more informed than I. What’s the other thing?
CALLER: The other thing is with this Trayvon Martin and Zimmerman case. How will the Hispanics like it how the media is trying to pick winners and losers in this thing and having the Hispanic side obviously the loser?
RUSH: They’re trying to turn a Hispanic guy into a white guy for the express purpose of seeing he’s convicted.
CALLER: Well, we need to keep hammering that he is Hispanic, you know? But, anyway, here’s the real question. I don’t understand why we allow the narrative to go to the Democrats who will tell us how we can win our elections and all that, when we have Obamacare that’s widely disapproved of. We have that momentum behind ’em, and yet, we still let them say —
RUSH: I don’t know.
CALLER: We won. We won in 2000, president. In 2004, we won. In 2010, we won the House. And it’s like it’s not true. We do win elections!
RUSH: I agree with you on this one. I’ve searched, and I’ve had my theories, and you’ve heard them, to explain why it is the Republicans want to listen to Democrats tell ’em how to win elections. I’m telling you, it baffles me like I can’t believe. Look, very quickly here are the reasons. First, money. The big money Republicans want the cheap labor, so this is what it takes to make sure there’s an endless supply.
Second, the Republican consultants have a lot of sway over candidates, telling ’em, “This is how you gonna win election. You’ve got to break out!” The third thing is the Republican establishment not really fond of its base, knows that this will irritate the base, and wouldn’t mind if the base split. There are any number of explanations, but none of ’em make any common-sense. I don’t know how many times I’ve said this. I’m blue in the face.
Bob Menendez and any of these other guys, Chuck Schumer, tell us, “You know, you guys are never gonna win another election unless you do this,” as though they’re really interested in us winning? The main thing about this is, if we’re to believe them, the Democrats are saying, “You know what? We’re willing to share some of these Hispanic votes with you just so you guys survive.”
So maybe they want a Republican Party to survive that is a constantly beatable minority so they always have an… You know what? This does make some sense, because the Democrat Party cannot exist without villains and demons that it impugns and criticizes and discredits. And if there were not an opposition party, they’d have to invent one.
So who knows? Maybe they know what they’re doing is they’re creating a permanent-minority, always-beatable Republican Party — with the Republican Party’s assistance. Now, the Republican Party thinks that what they’re doing is their route back to victory. Don’t forget that. They really do. Don’t ask me to explain it. None of it’s rooted in common-sense, and, as such, I can’t.
