RUSH: I have never in my life, and I really have struggled to remember, I wasn’t old enough in 1964 to be aware of such things. I knew who Goldwater was. I even went to a Goldwater whistle-stop. My dad put us in the car, took us over to Southern Illinois where Goldwater was going through. I knew it was a landslide. I didn’t know why. I didn’t know anything about the conservative movement, knew nothing of any of that. But that aside, I have never in the rest of my life from 1964 forward, I don’t think I have ever seen anything like we are witnessing today where our side has already conceded defeat.
Our side has given up. Our side has concluded that we are going to lose and in a massive landslide, and they are already making plans for recriminations after the election. A bunch of people you never heard of are preparing to sort out the blame and responsibility for those who made this all possible. And I’ll give you three guesses who they are zeroing in on. That’s right, my friends, your beloved host is to blame for all of this. Your beloved host is to blame for the other conservative hosts doing what they’re doing.
I’m to blame for Trump being a candidate. I am to blame for it all, and they’re all lining up getting prepared to exonerate themselves, of course. I’m talking about Republicans; I’m talking about conservatives, people that are quasi-conservatives. Think tank people you’ve never heard of are lining up now, already conceding that it’s over, conceding that it’s a landslide. They are conceding we’ve lost the House. They’re conceding they’ve lost the Senate.
It’s almost like they want that to happen. I’ve never seen anything like this before. But we’re in the midst of it, and for all that that is worth and while that’s all going on, there’s a whole lot of people that have not given up, mainly you. There are a whole lot of people not willing to concede any of this yet because there’s too much that doesn’t make any sense, as we will explore in great detail on the program today.
The WikiLeaks document dump has produced an email from Podesta with go-to instructions on how to create polls that show an overwhelming Democrat majority for the express purpose of dispiriting and depressing Republican opposition.
Now, just to be clear, I have no idea what’s going on. I have no idea who’s gonna win. I don’t have the slightest bit of inside information, and I don’t feel confident giving you a straight up and down opinion on this. There’s too much we don’t know. There are too many things that we have learned that make me question all kinds of conventional wisdom. But I’ll be the first to tell you I haven’t the slightest idea what’s gonna happen.
I’m like you, I watch everything that’s going on. Some of it makes sense and some of it doesn’t. And, like you, I have questions about things that you question. The fact that so many others do not have any doubt whatsoever, don’t have any questions whatsoever, it’s over, Trump is gonna lose in a landslide like which we have never seen, maybe Goldwater proportions, and we’ve got evidence here that that may not be the case and that evidence is being ignored and discounted by some, and it’s being desperately clinged to by others. If you look at the behavior of the candidates, it doesn’t make any sense.
Trump’s out there everywhere he can go drawing massive crowds. Hillary’s hibernating. Kaine and Obama and a bunch of others are sitting in for Hillary. She’s nowhere to be seen. The others, her surrogates, are out there and even her surrogates are not drawing crowds. There’s not a whole lot of excitement.
And Obama, when he shows up to do a campaign he can’t stop talking about conservative media. He can’t stop talking about it. Here’s a guy who has mastered and succeeded with practically every agenda item that he had to one degree or another, and he’s not even happy. He’s still bent out of shape that I’m here. He’s still bent out of shape that there’s a Fox News. He’s still bent out of shape that there’s a conservative media.
