RUSH: Now to sound bite number 19. You know, I have been waiting for this sound bite. You’ve heard it by now. It’s been viral for 24 hours, and I am routinely surprised when I think I’m not going to be. I’m not surprised. I don’t think I’m gonna be surprised when I am. I just wanted to see what kind of reaction this would get, and it’s our beloved, one-of-a-kind, vice president. Biden was at Philadelphia yesterday at the 30th Street Station at the unveiling of Amtrak’s new Cities Sprinter Locomotive. It’s an electric train, and he’s talking about it need for infrastructure investment.
Here is, among other things, what he said.
BIDEN: If I blindfolded someone and took him at two o’clock in the morning into the airport in Hong Kong and said, “Where do you think you are?” They’d say, “This must be America. It’s a modern airport.” If I took him blindfold and took him to the LaGuardia airport in New York, you must think, “I must be in some Third World country.”
RUSH: This is a guy who said you can’t go into a 7-Eleven unless you could speak Indian, or you can’t get a job there unless you are Indian or speak with a slight Indian accent, and now he’s calling LaGuardia airport in New York a Third World country’s airport. There’s been no reaction. De Blasio in New York? Ho-hum. Nobody cares. Now, what would have happened if Cheney had said this?
What if Cheney had gone to LaGuardia and said, “That’s a Third World airport!”
(impression) “Well, what’s wrong with the Third World? That’s a racist comment! Do you believe this? What the vice president is saying is you go into LaGuardia and all you see are a bunch of dark-skinned immigrants and janitors.” That’s what they would accuse him of meaning. Now, here comes Plugs talking about, admittedly, an infrastructure deal, but he’s talking about LaGuardia as a Third World airport.
Have you ever seen people who have been running a country for more than five years take less responsibility for anything? How many stimulus dollars have been allocated to upgrade the infrastructure of the airports and the schools and the bridges and the roads and the whatevers?
These people, they run around and they trash the country while they are running it! The stimulus and all the stimuli was supposed to fix this! Hell, just the existence of Obama on the scene was supposed to fix this. I’ll tell you what: These people are enamored of the ChiComs. They do love ’em. It doesn’t matter if it’s Obama, Biden. The ChiComs can’t do anything wrong.
