RUSH: Jack in Nashville.  Hello, sir.  How are you?

CALLER:  Hello, Rush.  Good to talk to you.

RUSH:  Thank you.

CALLER:  I’m calling today because I’m very upset about the way the media’s treating Patricia Smith — who is the mother of Sean Smith, for those in your audience who don’t know.  She’s been derided in the media as of last night as out of line for suggesting Hillary Clinton left Tyrone S. Woods, Glen Doherty, and Ambassador Stevens to die in Benghazi.  Van Jones on CNN stated that she should just get over it.  Chris Matthews said that it ruined their evening — that is the GOP’s evening — by allowing her to speak and that everybody knew that what she was saying wasn’t true.

RUSH:  Right.  The Washington Post said that her speech took the convention into the gutter.

CALLER:  Well, Cindy Sheehan? I seem to recall when she was being held up as a paragon of virtue, when she was venting her bile and bereavement.

RUSH:  You know, that is an excellent point.  You are exactly right.  They were parading Cindy Sheehan around everywhere.  She lost a son in the Iraq war, and she was a rock star everywhere the Democrat Party had an event.  And the media followed her everywhere and made her a great hero and spokeswoman.  They even made documentaries movies about her, if I recall.  But Patricia Smith? She’s horrible.  A little bit of what she said, grab sound bite 21 and give just a bit of.

SMITH:  For all of this loss, for all of this grief, for all of the citizens of the tragedy in Benghazi has brought upon America, I blame Hillary Clinton.

CONVENTION: (cheers)

SMITH: I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son.  In an email to her daughter shortly after the attack, Hillary Clinton blamed it on terrorism.  But when I saw Hillary Clinton at Sean’s coffin ceremony just days later, she looked me squarely in the eye and told me a video was responsible.

RUSH:  She did! She was telling everyone that! Obama, too.  They were lying to everybody about that video and so forth.  And see, this woman was personally lied to, and Cindy Sheehan was running around blaming George W. Bush and Rumsfeld and everybody else. The media would then go question Bush about it, and they would go question Rumsfeld. They’d give Cindy Sheehan every ounce of credibility they could give her.  That is an excellent, excellent point.  Look, I want you to hear a little bit of Rudy last night if you didn’t, because one of the objectives of the coverage of Melania today is to make sure nobody saw Rudy.  We’ve got a bunch of bites. We’ll try to squeeze a number of them in here starting with number 27.

GUILIANI:  We say thank you to every police officer and law enforcement agent who’s out tonight protecting us!

CONVENTION: (cheers and applause)

GIULIANI: Black, white, Latino, of every race, every color, every creed, every sexual orientation.

CONVENTION: (applause)

GIULIANI: When they come to save your life, they don’t ask if you are black or white!

CONVENTION: (wild cheers and applause)

GIULIANI:   They just come to save you!

RUSH:  And so people were saying, “He was too caffeinated! He was too wild! He was making too many gestures. He was just shouting! It was too much,” and they’re worried, ’cause that means he was too effective.  And this one, this was a great sound bite.

GIULIANI:  What happened to…?

CONVENTION: (cheers and applause)

GIULIANI: What happened to, “There’s no black America, there’s no white America, there is just America?”

CONVENTION: (cheers and applause)

GIULIANI:  What happened to it? Where did it go?  How has it flown away?  I know we can change it because I did it by changing New York City from the crime capital of America to the safest large city in the United States.  What I did for New York, Donald Trump will do for America!

CONVENTION: (cheers and applause)

RUSH:  That was a direct hit there on Obama, who got great credit in 2004 for his convention speech saying, “There is no black America, there’s no white America, there’s no red states, there’s no blue states.” And of course Rudy is asking, “Where is that America?  What happened to it?”  Well, we all know.  And here’s Rudy defending Trump, and doing it pretty well.

GUILIANI:  Every time New York suffered a tragedy, Donald Trump was there to help.  He’s not gonna like my telling you this, but he did it anonymously. When police officers were shot, when fighters were hurt, when people were in trouble, he came forward, and he helped, and he asked not to be mentioned.  I am telling you this because I am sick and tired of the defamation of Donald Trump by the media and by the Clinton campaign.  I am sick and tired of it!

CONVENTION: (wild cheers and applause)

GIULIANI: This is a good man!

RUSH:  Rudy Giuliani, who was the firebrand of the night last night in what all in all was a really good night, first night for the Republican convention.  Tonight, it’s Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, a lot of elected Republicans on the podium tonight at the Republican convention.
