RUSH: George in South Windsor, Connecticut, you’re next as we head back to the phones. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Good afternoon. I might need a little help from the host to get through this one. I always get nervous in the presence of greatness.
RUSH: Well, you’re kind. Thank you, sir. You’ll do fine. We’ll see to it.
CALLER: Well, thank you. And you did fine yesterday talking about that George Lakoff approach to languaging and the expunging of the H-word from our vocabulary. What a travesty, Rush, but I called to talk about what I’m more nervous about, and that is the upcoming elections 2014.
CALLER: I made the mistake of surfing across Debbie Wasserman Schultz on C-SPAN over the weekend.
RUSH: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Monday through Friday is bad enough, but to have to encounter her on a weekend, man, I feel for you, George.
RUSH: That’s just uncalled for.
CALLER: She was exposing the Operation Ivy down-ballot approach in the upcoming election. Let me explain that Operation Ivy’s been around for a while. In order to produce a president through fraudulent election, which has been done several times, and several times, many times, since 1960, especially the last two times. And now what they’ve done is they’ve taken Operation Ivy, what they call down ballot, and that is down to the state, city, town, municipal elections. And we’ve got some good candidates in line for 2014, but we realize that we’re up against the down-balloting of Operation Ivy, which will then provide the same element of election fraud to the state governor’s races, senators, House of Representatives, and the town races to ensure that socialists get elected. So we’ve done something about it. And this is the only hope we have to make these predictions in the National Journal that you just mentioned —
CALLER: — come to fruition. And Nate Silver’s got some new words for us, too, that has him in hot water, but it’s not gonna happen unless we get behind this movement. And I would like to give out the toll free phone number.
RUSH: No. No way. George, if I allow that, that’s all the program’s gonna become, is fundraising disguised as great political concern and so forth. Please don’t be offended, but I just can’t do that. I’ve had to draw the line on that for 25 years. You’re on your own, just like I was when I started the program, in building up a loyal audience and a following. Operation Ivy. I’ve never heard of it. Do you know what Operation Ivy is, Snerdley? (interruption) That’s the name of their tech operation. Okay. So what they’re trying to do is if they’re in trouble at the Senate or House level, then they start just really pumping local elections to get turnout and get straight party-line voting as a way to overcome weakness at the top of the ticket. That’s one of the things. I just didn’t know they called it Operation Ivy. But I still feel bad for the guy, having to encounter Debbie Wasserman Schultz on a weekend.
Bob in Oakland. Great to have you, sir. Oakland, California, it is on the EIB Network.
CALLER: An honor. It’s an honor to speak with you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much.
CALLER: Here’s the ultimate response to a Dem running against Obamacare. “Senator so-and-so, if this law has changed so many times that it is not anything close to what you voted for, then why did you allow the president to illegally change it without congressional approval?”
RUSH: Amen! Amen! If you didn’t vote for it, then why did you sit by and let him change it willy-nilly and you didn’t stop one time? That’s excellent. Right on. That’s one of the best retorts that a Republican could come up with if a Democrat running for reelection tries this, “Hey, it’s not what I voted for.” I like it.
CALLER: That’s awesome.
RUSH: It is. It is. “Well, wait a minute. If you didn’t vote for it, why did you sit around idly? In fact, why were you sitting around supporting the president as he changed it?” And then to couple with that, go back and find this particular Democrat in the past campaigning for Obamacare, saying all these great, wonderful things about it, after he had voted for it. The one thing that the Democrats rely on — you can’t blame ’em for this, by the way — they count on the ignorance of many voters. They count on the ignorance of the low-information voter, and they count on the presumption that the Republicans are mean and don’t care and by same token, the Democrats do care. They really want to help people (crying) they want to get it right. Republicans just hate everybody.
This is the kind of thing they rely on that people will think. Republicans, even in this set of circumstances or atmosphere, they just can’t sit back. My point is there’s all kinds of ways to go on offense here with confidence and bravado and inspiration. You can also, after pointing out to this senator, “Oh, you’re saying you didn’t vote for it? Well, then why did you sit idly by while the president changed it all those times? In fact, why did you support the president while he changed it all those times?” And you could also ask the Democrat senator, “Well, then, why not change the law back? Why not change it back to what you voted for? But you don’t know what you voted for because you didn’t read it.”
They ought to be sitting ducks because frankly, folks, look, saying something like I’m gonna say is gonna end up depressing a lot of people, but I’m gonna say it anyway. For the life of me, and even considering everything, the ignorance of low-information people and all the presumptions that they carry around, I do not understand how Barack Obama is as high as 40. A president who has done what he’s done to our economy and has mucked up people’s health care, ought to be sitting at 10 to 15 or 20%. I’m gonna tell you something else. I gotta tell you this quick ’cause I gotta take a break. I ran into a story during show prep from a left-wing think tank blog site, and they have a tactic that they are preparing in the campaign. They are going to say that the Republicans’ real intention after they win the Senate and the House is impeaching Obama.
Now, you will not find… You can search every database in the world, and you will not find a single Republican saying one thing in support of Obama’s impeachment. But that doesn’t matter. I just want you to be aware, be forewarned, that the Democrats are preparing to start running fraudulent, lying commercials or saying it in campaigns.
“What your Republican candidate won’t tell you is, that his real intention after winning in November is to impeach the president!” They’re hoping to scare and keep the black vote up and keep the Hispanic vote up and keep the young people vote up, ’cause that’s all they’ve got, folks. They don’t have anything else. They can’t run on Obama. They can’t run on anything Obama’s done, ’cause he hasn’t done anything worth touting.
All they can do is negative, scare stuff.
When I saw this on this left-wing think tank’s blog, I said, “This makes perfect sense. They’re just gonna tell another lie about what the Republican’s real agenda is.” It’s like this stuff about the Koch brothers. In fact, it’ll probably be the Koch brothers who are responsible and pushing! “The Republicans won’t tell you ’cause they want to impeach our beloved president!” You wait. You wait and see if you don’t see this kind of thing.
