RUSH: We have another sound bite just in from Charlotte, North Carolina, the first lady, Moochelle (My Belle) Obama, appearing at a Hillary Clinton campaign event.
OBAMA: When I hear folks saying that they’re just not feeling inspired in this election, ha, I really have to disagree, because right now we have an opportunity to elect one of the most qualified people who has ever endeavored to become president, Hillary. No one in our lifetime has ever had as much experience and exposure to the presidency. Not Barack, not Bill. Nobody. And, yes, she just happens to be a woman.
RUSH: Big deal. Big whoop. Monica Lewinsky had exposure to the presidency, too, and I don’t think you’d say the same thing about her. Gennifer Flowers had exposure to the governorship of Arkansas. Any number of women have had exposure to any kind of everything of Bill Clinton. This proves my point that these people will swallow anything to stay unified if the objective is to beat us, because they don’t like each other. I’m here to tell you that the Clintons and the Obamas do not, at heart, like each other.
Michelle Obama, I’m here to tell you, no way believes that Hillary Clinton is more qualified than anybody else who has ever been president. Michelle Obama no more believes that we have an opportunity to elect one of the most qualified people who has ever endeavored to become president, no one in our lifetime has ever had as much experience and exposure. This shows you what they are willing to eat, what they’re willing to subordinate in order to stay unified to beat us.
We simply do not have this capability. Some people think, “Well, that’s good, Rush, we don’t want to win with a pack of lies like this.” Here’s my question, however, ultimately: Why is this even necessary? Did you notice how Moochelle (My Belle) opened this? “When I hear folks saying they’re just not feeling inspired in this election” where is she? She’s at a Hillary event. What therefore is she really saying? What she’s saying is, when I hear folks say that they’re really not inspired by Hillary, I just really have to disagree. So a campaign rally opens attempting to refute a negative premise about Hillary Clinton.
Now, all of this to me adds up that she’s not anywhere near in the driver’s seat that they want us to think that she is. She’s nowhere near having this wrapped up, locked up, and ready to roll as they want us to think. If they, a month out from the election, essentially, are still dealing with Hillary’s negatives — and remember there’s some underlying truths here. Hillary does not have a personal connection with most of the people voting for her. Meaning, the people voting for her are not personally invested in her winning. And that’s why Michelle has to add that she’s a woman.
So they’re trying to drum up support for that. Play the gender card. “Hey, even if you don’t like her, even if you’re not inspired, you’ve got to vote for her because she’s a woman.” Yeah, right? Really? They’re pulling out all these obligations these supporters have, because apparently there isn’t this unending desire to see Hillary Clinton elected. And it’s an important thing to keep in mind. When you start getting down in the dumps and dispirited, keep in mind that the negatives that Hillary Clinton is walking around with are every bit as intense and high as what they tell us Trump’s are.
And she does not own the female vote. She’s not cleaning up in the female vote. Even sending Michelle Obama out there to do this, period, to me wreaks of something not right. It tells me they’re not ecstatically happy out there and confident with what is happening. But they’re overdoing this. “There’s never been anybody more qualified.” What does that matter anyway? You know, there are specific things wrong in this country and most of them are directly tied to what Hillary Clinton thinks, and what Barack Obama thinks, and what Michelle Obama thinks.
The things going wrong in this country are the direct result of policies implemented by the Democrat Party. So rather than deal with that, no, we’ve got to talk about why she’s qualified and that alone should tell you all you need to know to vote for her. She can’t make that case. Hillary Clinton does not exude that. This is the problem she’s got. She’s got Obama out there at the Democrat convention saying she’s more qualified than anybody who’s ever been president, including him and Clinton. And Michelle Obama is saying it.
But Hillary doesn’t exude that. When you see Hillary you don’t think, “Wow, man, we’ve never had anybody this good. We’ve never had anybody this smart. We’ve never had anybody this qualified.” She does not convey that. And so they’re having to tell us that she is all of that, because she obviously isn’t.
