RUSH: Hillary Clinton. This is on Wednesday in Washington at Georgetown University. She did a foreign policy press conference. This is the event that was half empty. There were more empty seats than filled seats. I don’t get the fear of Hillary Clinton. I mean, she gets elected, I understand it, but I don’t understand the fear that has her already elected. The woman’s book bombed. Her book tour bombed. She’s making speeches at Georgetown, and half the place doesn’t show up.
I’m telling you, there’s no connection there. And it’s gonna be even worse for her with Millennials. You wait. I’m gonna explain that in just a second, but you ought to hear what she said here. This is our former secretary of state, and a woman that a bunch of Republicans are scared to death of is already as good as elected as the next president.
HILLARY: This is what we call smart power, using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, and insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions, that is what we believe in the twenty-first century will change, change the prospects for peace.
RUSH: This is just unbelievable, folks. We must empathize with our enemies. Smart power. You know, I’m so tired of that phrase. That’s what John Kerry — he served Vietnam, by the way. This is smart diplomacy, smart this, smart that. It’s stupid, it’s dumb. No one on the sidelines, showing respect even for our enemies. You ever thought about showing Republicans some respect, Hillary? I bet that never crossed your mind, did it?
You know, you ought to start treating your enemies the way you treat Republicans and conservatives, and then we might have a decent foreign policy. “And insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with our enemies’ perspective and point of view.” Empathize with it? So we’re back now to if we just show them that we’re nice people, they’ll stop being mad at us. If we just show them we’re nice, they’ll stop wanting to kill us.” We had a lot of respect and empathy for Hitler, right, for Stalin, for Mao? Yeah. Yeah. I tell you, some people say she’s just Obama in a pantsuit. I’m gonna tell you something, folks.
I really think, when it comes to these Millennials, these ADD, ADHD Millennials, short attention spans, hip deep into pop culture, I don’t think they’re gonna find — I think Hillary Clinton is already one of the least interesting people in public life. She’s awkward; she’s unoriginal; she has the improvisational skills of a parrot. And she’s photogenic on like the 23rd take. I’ll tell you something else. You wait. You wait ’til these Millennials find out how she enabled her husband to sexually whatever, abuse, what, all of these women. They weren’t alive when that happened.
They weren’t alive during Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, and Kathleen Willey, or they weren’t old enough to remember it. Lewinsky and all that, wait ’til they find out. Let me put it to you this way. Today’s Millennials — don’t misquote me on this — if they found out that Obama was running around serially involved in adulterous relationships and Michelle Obama was in charge of ruining the reputations of the women involved, you think the Millennials would put up with it?
Well, wait ’til they find out that Hillary ran the bimbo eruptions. This generation of young people, gay marriage, all of this stuff, fine and dandy, feminism totally runs their show. You wait ’til they find out Hillary’s role in what she did to other women. I’m telling you, it isn’t gonna be the slam dunk for her, particularly now that Candy Crowley has quit. That’s gonna be an even bigger problem. And if you don’t understand immediately why, just stop and think about it for a minute.
