RUSH: I got an e-mail moments ago which is a Mediaite story on Megyn Kelly and her show on Fox News last night. Now, the e-mail says, the headline: “Megyn Kelly: The Obama Presidency Is ‘Imploding.’ — Megyn Kelly opened her show tonight [last night] tearing into the Obama White House for what increasingly looks like an ‘imploding’ presidency, given scandal after scandal after scandal the White House has found itself engulfed in, both domestically and abroad. Kelly opened with this simply question: ‘Is Barack ObamaÂ‘s presidency imploding?'”
And, look, it depends on how you look at it, but I don’t think that it is. If you are gonna judge it on its competence, yeah. But it’s been imploding on that basis since day one. My belief is the guy’s never been competent. My belief is he’s never had the kind of experience necessary to be president of this country. And I think you need to look no further than what David Brooks of the New York Times said: “I love the crease in his slacks.” He wasn’t joking. So they talk about, well, he’s intelligent, and he’s an articulate guy, and so that means he’s one of us. He’s an Ivy Leaguer. He thinks and speaks and talks like we do, and we are smart, so he’s smart.
Practical experience. There isn’t any. And nobody in his Regime has any experience in anything other than theorizing in the faculty lounge what they would do if they ever took over. Here’s what I think. I’m gonna give you another possibility. Here is another possibility, folks. I want to take a break here, come back with the possibility, because some of what Obama is doing is clearly undermining the electoral chances of Democrats who are up for reelection.
Obama’s not. Obama will never have to face the voters again. But everybody in office in the Democrat Party will, in November this year and again November of 2016. And he is pulling the rug out from all of them. I don’t care, this open borders stuff, what’s happening with the VA, what’s happening with Iraq, he’s making everybody mad at everybody. Now, where I’m headed with this, just give you a little tease question: What if Obama actually would like for the Republicans to take over the Senate and keep the House?
RUSH: So what if Obama wants the Republicans to win the Senate? In the last two years of his Regime — oh, can you just hear it now? Everything he wants to do, the Republicans say “no.” Everything he wants to do, they stop him. Obama runs around and complains and starts pointing fingers at the Republicans as enemies of progress and whatever. The press carries that along and everybody ends up hating the Republicans, setting up the Democrats to win again in 2016? Not beyond the realm of possibility.
I also wouldn’t be surprised to learn that one of the things Obama would love is for the Republicans to actually impeach him, ’cause he thinks that would bring about a Democrat landslide. He’s not gonna look at this NBC/Wall Street Journal poll. He’s gonna see his popularity down, but he’s still gonna see, he’s still gonna think that he’s loved and adored because he’s the first black president. Anybody that tries to impeach him is going to catch hell.
I have thought even prior to today that Obama is trying to goad Republicans into doing this. Because he’s confident the American people will be outraged. No way are we gonna impeach Obama. So just something to think about. ‘Cause some of this stuff — he’s just getting warmed up. Some of the things that he’s doing are gonna make it real hard for Democrats who are running for reelection, make no mistake.
