RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number 22. I just got this. I just received the transcript of this. I haven’t had a chance to read it, but I want to hear it. Apparently, Jimmy Carter was on CNBC today and said he could have beaten Reagan if he was more manly. Feminists are not gonna like this. He was on with the host Tania Bryer. She said, “Even your wife, Rosalynn, was encouraging you to take action against Iran,” back during the hostage crisis. “Was it hard to not take everyone’s advice around you, even your wife?”
CARTER: Yes. Well, I could have been reelected if I had taken military action against Iran. It would have shown that I was strong and resolute and manly and so forth. But I think if I – I could have wiped Iran off the map with the weapons that we had, but in the process, a lot of innocent people would have been killed, probably including the hostages. And so I stood up against all that advice and then eventually my prayers were answered and every hostage came home safe and free. And so I think I made the right decision in retrospect, but it was not easy at the time.
RUSH: Yeah, I could have been manly. I could have blown ’em off the map. Yeah, manly. I could have blown ’em off the map, and I probably would have won reelection, but I wasn’t gonna do that. I would have killed innocent people.
We’re killing innocent people now. You know we’re killing innocent people, and we’re dropping — did you hear about this? We had an accident. It’s not funny. We actually dropped, via parachute, we air dropped a bunch of food and medical supplies to ISIS. (interruption) Yes. (interruption) It was an accident. It went to the wrong place. Hey, these things happen. (interruption) Well, that’s the thing, I don’t know. It says reported in the news as an accident, but I wondered. (laughing) We’re dropping food and medicine.
Carter’s prayers were answered (imitating Carter), “Yeah, yeah, my prayers were finally answered, and every hostage came home safe.” The only reason the hostages came home safe and free is because Jimmy Carter lost the election and Ronaldus Magnus was victorious.
