RUSH: Here’s Jayne in Soda Springs, Idaho. Hi, Jayne. I’m glad you waited. Great to have you on the EIB Network.
CALLER: Spud dittos from Idaho, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: And it’s a great laugh being on hold.
RUSH: Well, good. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
CALLER: Here’s my question, and I thought of two more parts to this. Who’s more powerful, the Obama regime or the Clinton regime? And will it be a knock-down, drag-out fight and divide the party, or will the agenda have more impact on them and make them work together for the greater good in 2016?
RUSH: Are you talking about will the presidential race in 2016 be a knock-down, drag-out?
CALLER: Will it?
RUSH: Is that what you’re asking?
CALLER: Yeah. The two powerful regimes, who’s more powerful, the Obama regime or the Clinton regime?
RUSH: I don’t think there’s any question about it. There’s no question about it. The Obama regime. Hands down.
CALLER: How is this gonna impact Hillary? Is she gonna —
RUSH: I don’t know. Here’s the thing about the 2016 race. The Clinton regime, in terms of power, I have to say, if Clinton coulda done what Obama’s doing, he woulda done it. If Clinton and Hillary coulda done this, they would have. They just were unable to get away with it. That’s why I think that the Obama regime is more powerful. I mean, they tried health care, they didn’t get it, Obama did. And with raw power. But Obama’s been aided by something that Clinton was not able to capitalize on, that’s race. Obama’s race basically silences the opposition.
So when you talk about the 2016 presidential race, if the nominee is Hillary, the Democrats’ thinking is that they can keep this whole game going, where you can’t criticize their nominee. You got the first black president, and you can’t criticize him, otherwise you’re no different than the rodeo clown in Missouri. You’re just a racist SOB, subhuman species scum, if you criticize Obama. And they’re gonna try to carry that on with Hillary as the potential first female. Any criticism would be said to be sexist.
And the Republicans will have fresh memories of what they will consider to be the successfully waged War on Women. So it might not be knock-down, drag-out. It’s gonna depend on what kind of guts the Republicans have. And it’ll depend on who the nominee is, the nominee will set the tone, and we don’t have any idea who that’s gonna be. So it’s too early to be able to answer that question in anything other than a wild guess.
