RUSH: Elections have consequences, folks, and now it’s time for the Democrats to lose and eat it with their own rules.
RUSH: Howie, if I'd known you were gonna be outed that way, I would have done something about it.
RUSH: The media doesn't report it, but in terms of substance, Trump is winning everything. But this doesn't look like it. This looks like Trump is letting Ryan dictate the way this is gonna be.
RUSH: The one thing that's constant in all these stories is that Trump wants this thing and he wants it now and what he wants is essentially the bill that he and Ryan put together that doesn't contain some of the elements that he signaled as promises during the campaign.
RUSH: The Soviet Union was the model of the future if they just could have gotten it right. It was gonna be utopia, equality, fairness, sameness and all of that. So given that the Democrat Party has no history of disliking the Soviet Union, the Democrat Party has no history of opposing the Soviet Union or Russia.
RUSH: He's the first justice nominee — the very first — who has been able to "get away with," quote/unquote, telling liberal senators that there are no little guys, there are no big guys, there are no rich guys, there are no poor guys in court. This guy is masterful. They're trying to destroy Jimmy Stewart, essentially, and they're going to fail.
RUSH: I'm so glad I did this, because I'm here to tell you, nothing Russia did created this arrogance. Nothing Russia did created this willful blindness the Democrats and the media had about Trump's prospects. Russia did not hack all of these Democrat polls to mislead Democrats. They believed their own fake polls. They believed their own data. The Russians didn't create it. The Russians didn't create the polls. Nate Silver's not a Russian plant.
RUSH: What the Democrats were largely doing yesterday was just that: feeding the paranoid, insane Democrat base, because the expectations that there's going to be an impeachment of Donald Trump have been raised so high that the Democrat base will accept nothing less than that. And that's the pressure that everybody's operating under here, including, I believe, Comey.
RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
