RUSH: You see the story today. I’ve got a sound bite on it. I don’t know where it is, but it’s the fact that Obama hasn’t met with Sebelius in three years. He met with her once in two and a half years. Now, Kathleen Sebelius is the otherwise inept and incompetent secretary of Health and Human Services.
But because she’s the secretary of Health and Human Services she is empowered to basically run Obamacare when Obama forgets to be dictator. It’s number 17. Okay. Here it is. It’s Peter Schweizer, old buddy Peter Schweizer. Peter Schweizer’s written books about the Regime. He’s at Breitbart. He’s on Hannity last night, and Hannity said, “Three and a half years leading up to the Obamacare launch, Obama held zero one-o-ones with Sebelius. I know you looked at calendar records. He had 277 one-on-one meetings with other secretaries, zero with Sebelius. Is it possible that it happened and just isn’t recorded?”
SCHWEITZER: We looked at it White House visitors logs, which show that Sebelius went to the White House. But on every occasion it was for a social function with dozens or hundreds of people. There are no recorded meetings except for one in April of 2010 where she and secretary of the Treasury Geithner met with the president. But that’s more than three and a half years ago that they had any kind of small meeting together whatsoever. This is his signature domestic policy, one-sixth of the entire US economy is being reconstituted under government control, and he can’t make the time for a meeting in three and a half years with the person implementing it? That’s really pretty shocking.
RUSH: No, it’s not. It isn’t shocking at all. I don’t mean to sound like one of these people, “If you knew what I knew.” But I’m just telling you, it’s not shocking at all. He doesn’t care about the details. He doesn’t care that he lied. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t want to be bothered by the details of any of it. That’s not what this is. All that matters to him is, it’s the law now. The hell with what happens between now and when they get to total government control, total socialized medicine.
That’s the objective, and what’s happening now, he doesn’t care. That’s why he didn’t meet with Sebelius. He doesn’t care. He never has cared about the minutia, the detail. It’s not because he’s above it or it’s beneath him. It’s just there are things he’d rather do. He’s not worried it’s gonna be repealed, and if every does really get worried it’s gonna be repealed he’ll do something to try to stop there.
He might have some concerns about that now, but he doesn’t care about all of these little details. They’re beneath him. Why talk to Sebelius? Look, if he cared, it’s real simple. It’s his “signature issue.” You think about this in terms of it being you. You have this one thing. You care about this more than anything in the world. I don’t know about any of you people that run your own businesses, but the things that really matter, you don’t farm it out, particularly in the early days.
You shepherd it. Your passion is what drives it. You are aware of every potential flaw and every real flaw, so you can you fix it, because you’ve put your life into it. That’s not him. This is a theoretical dream. This is a socialist, Marxist dream. It is what it is. How you get there and all that? That’s for other minions to worry about. Why don’t meet with Sebelius? He doesn’t care. I think the fact that he didn’t meet with her is the only evidence anybody needs that he really doesn’t care in a compassionate sense about people.
