RUSH: And speaking of comedy — no, no, not the Letterman show. Obama. Commencement speech, the Coast Guard. It’s flat-out embarrassing. It’s uproariously funny. By the way, have you heard that ISIS now controls more than half of Syria? More than half of Syria, ISIS now controls. We can add Libya to it pretty soon. We got Iraq on their way to Baghdad. And there’s Obama.
Greetings, my friends, great to have you, and Rush Limbaugh, behind the Golden EIB Microphone. More broadcast excellence as you’ve come to know, love, and expect here. 800-282-2882 if you want to be on the program.
Obama, in the midst of this tear through the Middle East on the part of ISIS, Obama told the Coast Guard Academy graduates that not fighting against climate change is dereliction of duty. Did you catch any of this address? I don’t need the audio sound bites. I really don’t need the audio sound bites. In fact, that would just slow the program down. Obama claimed climate change is part of the cause of the rise of Boko Haram and ISIS.
Who needed Letterman to wrap it up last night when you’ve got Obama out there providing comedy for the whole world? ISIS is now due to global warming. Boko Haram kidnapping girls all over Nigeria is because of climate change, global warming. I kid you not. The commander-in-chief said so. And he further said to the Coast Guard graduates, not fighting against climate change is dereliction of duty. This from the man who ignored ISIS for years so he could campaign on his claim that terrorism was on the run.
This is a man who ignored ISIS, ignored everything going on in the Middle East, much of it that he caused, because as far as his election campaigns were concerned, there was no more terrorism. In fact, the State Department and the defense department issued orders that the word was not even to be used. There was no terrorism, and there were no terrorists, because Obama had beat it back. Obama had claimed victory for whatever happened in Iraq, was winding things down in Afghanistan, had Al-Qaeda on the run, if you recall.
Global warming tricked him, the deniers tricked him, because while we didn’t do anything about global warming, somehow climate change spawned ISIS. And climate change spawned Boko Haram. This is a man who cut our military forces to the bone and then cut the bone, and he’s telling the Coast Guard they will be guilty of dereliction of duty if they don’t fight climate change? Oh, man, I’ll tell you, some days I’m just surrounded by idiocy, surrounded by stupidity, feel like I’m being smothered by it, looking for a way out.
How can I get past this? How can I have a day where I don’t have to put up with this kind of inanity? How could I possibly find a day where I do not have to be exposed to this kind of insulting stupidity.
