RUSH: “On the campaign trail two days before the midterm elections, President Obama went to one of the few places that would take him: Philadelphia. Campaigning in support of gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf, Obama spoke to about 5,500 attendees at a mid-sized 10,000 seat arena that had to be partitioned off with a curtain to cater to the incoming crowd; a far cry from his former days as candidate Obama, when he filled Denver’s then-named Invesco Stadium” at Mile High between the cheap crepe paper Greek columns.
He drew 70,000 people to hear his acceptance speech, and now he can’t even get 6,000 people in a 10,000-seat arena in the Democrat stronghold of Philadelphia, and they have to curtain it off so that people can’t see the empty seats. In the South, the Democrats are playing the race card again.
I really didn’t think that there was any lower that they could go, I thought they found the gutter, but I was wrong. The Democrats are in such a low place now that when they look up, they see the gutter. Now a vote for a Republican in the South is a vote for the KKK. How many years ago in the playbook is that page? I mean, that’s been gotta be a 60-year-old page in the playbook.
Not to mention which the only Klan member that’s ever served in the United States Senate’s a Democrat, Sheets Byrd, from West Virginia.
RUSH: This is in the Weekly Standard. Obama was in Rhode Island today. Well, actually date of this is October 31st, was last Friday. Or was it Saturday? Whatever the date. Halloween was the 31st, right? (interruption) It always is. Was that a Friday? (interruption) Trick or treat? Okay, so that’s when this is from. “President Obama called for more taxpayer-spending on pre-school in order to ‘make sure that women are full and equal participants in our economy’ and” then he said this.
Are you ready?
Quote, “Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And thatÂ’s not a choice we want Americans to make.” Obama’s talking about women who stay home to raise kids. “[T]hat’s not a choice we want Americans to make.” Let me read it to you again.
“Sometimes, someone, usually mom,” in most cases a woman, but not always anymore. Usually “mom” is a mother. Do you agree with that? (interruption) Usually. It’s not always true anymore, but for this purpose we assume he’s talking about women. “Sometimes, someone, usually [a female] mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And thatÂ’s not a choice we want Americans to make.”
Moms who stay home to raise kids.
This is the same guy who… Well, you know his role in infanticide and post-abortion abortions in Illinois.
RUSH: Here you have Obama suggesting that mothers who stay at home to raise their kids, “that’s not a choice we want Americans to make.” He didn’t say, “That’s not A CHOICE we want Americans to HAVE TO make.” That would have been a different thing. He could have been talking about economics: Oh, we wish that Americans didn’t have to make that choice. What he said was,”[T]hat’s not a choice we want Americans to make.”
We don’t want ’em staying home, raising kids. We don’t want that to be required, necessary, and so forth.
