RUSH: Grab audio sound bite 28. It’s Mitch McConnell on CNN this afternoon. The point that he’s making here, I addressed this in the opening monologue today, which you may not have heard if you weren’t here at the beginning of the program. We were discussing all of this, it’s just inexplicable. It makes no sense why we want to assist the bad guys. Anyway, I don’t want to repeat all of that. It’s there at RushLimbaugh.com if you want to check it out. But listen to this. This is Mitch McConnell explaining once again, I mean, they gave it their best. They really gave it their best. But…
MCCONNELL: I’ve said we’ll be happy to take up any bill that enjoys enough cosponsors to override a presidential veto. Otherwise, this vote stands. And this is going to be a defining vote for the 2016 election.
RUSH: What I hear him saying is, “Once again, hey, you know what, we couldn’t stop it. He can override the veto. We don’t have the White House, so we can’t do anything. So what we’re going to do, we’re going to kick this can down the road. In 2016 we’re going to remind everybody what Obama did, and this is going to get us elected president. This, giving away our country to the Iranians, yeah, this is going to be the issue.” It’s not. That’s not what this is. It’s far more important.
These guys look at this as just the next piece of legislation rolling through the building. It may as well be a bill to deal with the snail darters in Kentucky. It’s just another piece of legislation. “We can’t override the veto.” Well, you might not have had to if you hadn’t had the stupid Corker Bill that tied your hands. How many of these are there now? We should never lose another election. We should have so many chips in our bag, the Democrats ought to never win anything. Because we’re keeping track, right?
We’re keeping track of all these transgressions. Yeah, everything Obama gets, we’re keeping track and we’re going to use it. We’re go to hold it in reserve. And this issue, this is going to come back. In 2016 this is going to be a huge issue. This is going to be defining. This means we’re going to win because we’re going to use it in 2016, and we’re going to tell people that Obama helped the Iranians get a nuclear bomb. We’re going to show how hard we worked.
That’s how they’re going to do this. In the meantime, Iran gets a nuclear bomb! And we think it will help us hold on to our committee chairmanships. As I say, inexplicable.
