RUSH: Here’s John in Youngstown, Ohio, as we head back to the phones. John, great to have you on the program. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: You bet, sir.
CALLER: Just going with your whole thing of where people are just so stupid, you know, the whole thing with Benghazi and how they put out that they wanted help? That took me back to when, you know, Hillary Clinton said during President Obama’s reelection campaign, “Who do you want answering the phone at three o’clock in the morning when the country’s in need?” Well, you know, the country was in need and our fine servicemen, they died throughout that whole attack. Guess what? The time was then, the phone rang, but nobody was there — and yet there are people still supporting her to elect her as the next president? I don’t get that.
RUSH: They’re idiots. Let me tell you something: 60 Minutes did a story on Benghazi last night, and they ripped nobody to shreds, but they got it right. They said, “It’s absolutely inexcusable, absolutely horrible!” But nowhere did they mention the name Hillary Clinton. Nowhere did they mention the name Barack Obama. But they did their expose, and they said, “It took us a year to do our investigation.” They fully exposed how Benghazi was an absolute disaster, but they never mention the name Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, from what I’m told.
I didn’t see it. But people I trust did, and their names weren’t mentioned. They made the point that the administration blamed this poor little video guy for months, that Benghazi was caused by some anti-Muslim video. They point out that US officials at the memorial service at the airport when the bodies came back perpetuated the lie. But they didn’t mention any names. But, of course, Hillary says when the truth comes out, “What difference does it make now?” Which is her entire campaign. “What difference does it make?” I think Fox has done an expose, a bunch of ’em. 60 Minutes did theirs last night, but nowhere was the president part of it.
