RUSH: We have audio sound bites here. President Obama reading from The Audacity of Hope. It’s an audio book version of one of his books. I don’t know which one. I can never get these things straight, but it’s fascinating. This is Obama talking about illegal immigration and his take on it.
OBAMA: Many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our Southern border. The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century. If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole, it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and puts strains on an already overburdened safety net.
RUSH: Really? What happened to that? So here’s Obama in an autobiography he published to coincide with his run for the presidency, and in it he acknowledges that illegal immigration hurts blue-collar workers and strains the safety net. And so after he gets elected, “Hey, why not? That’s exactly what I want to do,” and here we go. I’m telling you, these people are running cons on us. Everything this Regime has done has been a con game.
And here’s Bill Clinton. This is Bill Clinton Saturday in Little Rock at a Politico event celebrating 10 years of the Clinton — The Politico, a journalism outfit, celebrating — (interruption) Well, it is. It was a Politico event. I guess they had a booth. Politico had a booth at 10 years of the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor. And here’s Clinton speaking about the midterm elections. Listen to this.
CLINTON: The African-American vote held fairly steady and was remarkable, given the — we had a little bit of a loss of the Hispanic vote. Perhaps because the president didn’t issue the immigration order, but it was a tough call for him ’cause had he done so then a lot of the others would have lost by even more. It was a difficult call.
RUSH: Were you able to understand that? Here is Slick Willie, this is an Obamacare type lie that’s being perpetrated right now about amnesty. It’s a political loser! And it’s Clinton admitting it (imitating Clinton), “Yeah, well, you know what, the African-American vote held fairly steady. It’s remarkable actually, given the thought that, well, we had a little bit of a loss of the Hispanic vote, perhaps because the president didn’t issue the immigration order.
“But, I mean, that’s a tough call, immigration order, ’cause had he issued the immigration order, then a lot of others would have lost by more, so it was a tough call. So what I’m here to tell you is that Limbaugh is right. Had Obama done executive amnesty before the election, it would have been even bigger disaster for us than it was already. So Obama, he couldn’t have done it beforehand. So he had to delay screwing up the country until after the election so it wouldn’t hurt his party as much. But he’s gonna do it, I have it on good faith, Obama, he’s gonna do it, gonna do immigration thing, and he’s gonna totally mess up everything ’cause that’s the plan.” Amazing how these people sometimes come clean after an election when there can be no retribution for what they say.
