RUSH: So the media is telling us it's been a bad week for President Obama. I'd rather look at it through a different prism. It has been not just a bad week, it has been a bad three-and-a-half years. Not for Obama, but for us. Every week is a bad week for America, with Barack Hussein Kardashian in the White House. Every year is a bad year for us. It has been a bad three-and-a-half years. And as much, ladies and gentlemen, as I am dedicated to the educational and informative task of teaching people about the destructive nature of liberalism and its latest vehicle, Barack Hussein Kardashian -- and by the way, you know, that's popping up everywhere. It was in a Breitbart headline the other day, last night on the Breitbart website. I'm sure there's a whole Barack Hussein Kardashian website now. That's why I'm show prep for the rest of the media. It's all over the place out there now.
But, see, when it comes to America, I am not Obama-centric. We were better off before Obama and we'll be better off after Obama. See, to me, and particularly if you are one of the millions of new listeners the program, the country is what matters. The people who make this country work are who matter to me. I grow weary, I laugh at it, but I still grow weary, every day multiple media stories, "How will this impact Obama? How will this affect the Obama campaign? What does this mean for Obama's reelect campaign?" To hell with that. What does it mean for the country? That's our concern here. What does it mean for the people who make this country work? That's our concern here.
It's been a bad week for Obama. I'm sorry, that offends me. Boohoo. A bad week for Obama is a worse week for us. What is a bad week for the guy? He's flying on Air Force One as often as he wants from party to party, from celebrity to celebrity. And when he gets off that plane, he asks for money, he asks for praise, he asks for adoration. He asks for those that he has hurt the most to have his back. What bad week for Obama? Oh, you didn't hear this? It's a new ad for Obama. We had it yesterday. Here, listen to it again.
(playing of Obama ad)
RUSH: We've got yo' back. We've got the president's back. What is unemployment in the black community? Thirteen-point-six percent. What is unemployment with black youth? Fifty some odd percent. And yet here they are running ads for these people to have Obama's back? What about Obama having their back? What about Obama having our back? Oh, it's such a horrible week for Barack Obama. By the way, you should try this. A Google search of Obama and Kardashian returns 71,400,000 hits. Ha-ha-ha. A little throwaway line off the top of my head on this program a couple weeks ago and look how it has now rooted itself in the American pop culture and even in certain parts of the political culture.
So 13.6% unemployment in the black community, and Obama's running commercials asking black people for his back. Bad week for Obama, party to party, celebrity to celebrity. Asking for money, asking for praise, asking for those he's hurt the most to have his back. We have the first community organizer to occupy the Oval Office actively working to keep illegal voters voting in Florida. The state of Florida is trying to purge illegals and people illegally registered from the voting rolls, and the Justice Department, the Kardashian Justice Department with Eric Holder, is suing the state of Florida. Let a Republican president try anything like this, and you've got a nuclear explosion in the media.
I'm gonna tell you what's happening. The media doesn't report this stuff and they think as a result nobody knows about it. They continue to live in a state of denial, that there is an alternative media that is just as penetrating. They can pretend that by not covering a story, the story doesn't happen. They can pretend by not covering a story, or not condemning an action, that nobody hears about it. But people are fully aware of all of this, of the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia and the Justice Department declining prosecution, as was said because we're not going after black defendants.
Here we have a president who sued the state of Arizona to stop the state of Arizona from enforcing laws that protect their citizens. They simply created a law in Arizona that mirrors the federal law that Obama will not enforce, and he sues them. He gives billions of dollars, hundreds of billions of dollars to supporters of his in a losing industry, green energy, so he can use that as an excuse to pick on a winning industry, fossil fuel producers. He's doing everything he can to limit oil production, discovery, and expansion. Bad week for Obama? Oh, my heart bleeds.
Every day, we've had two in a row from the Washington Post. Democrats are worried. How's all this affecting Obama? You know, most of the country, Mr. Milbank and Ms. Tumulty, most of the country is not asking with wringing hands and deep concern, "Oh, my gosh, how is this news affecting our wonderful president?" They're asking themselves, "When the hell is somebody gonna do something to change the direction this country's economy is going?" They're not worried about the impact all this stuff is having on Obama. They see him having the life of a party. He's bragging about it. Television commercials, dinner with Anna Wintour and Sarah Jessica Parker. Then George Clooney. Now they're gonna do it again. Obama flying all over the place. Moochelle flying all over. Vacation after vacation after vacation, Martha's Vineyard, Las Vegas, Spain.
Poor Obama had a bad week? On his worst week, President Kardashian has had it better than the richest man on the planet in recorded and unrecorded history. I'm growing weary hearing about Barack Obama having a bad week. The people who make this country work are suffering every day he's in office. And we have to hear about a bad week that Obama had? Really, it is so out of proportion. It's insulting. You know, the scary thing to contemplate is, what would a good week for Obama be? What would it take for the media to report that he had a good week? Let that scare you, because it should. A bad week for Obama is having to sit next to a movie star that he doesn't particularly like.
Nixon was hounded out of office 40 years ago for a second-rate burglary that even to this day nobody can figure out. We have got Watergate type scandals in three different spots in this administration, and what's the media writing about? Forty-year-old Watergate. I'll never forget, folks, my dad. Oh, you would have loved if my dad were alive, get him on the phone, I'd say, "Hey, what's going on?" and shut up for a half hour. During Watergate Cronkite was still doing the news. At the end he would turn off TV, look at me, and he would scream, "What the hell did he do? What did he do?" People are still asking, what really happened?
Nobody can figure out what Watergate really was. We know it was a burglary at the Democrat National Committee, but beyond that, we still don't know what Nixon really did or didn't do and what the purpose of this was, and how it -- (interruption) Yeah, yeah, Nixon covered it up. Trying to protect his boys. Liddy, E. Howard Hunt. Folks, don't misunderstand me now. I'm not saying nothing happened, but a sense of proportion is needed here. For crying out loud, we have a regime which ignores federal judges on drilling moratoriums. We have a regime that is running an open money laundering operation with union dues. We have an administration that is knowingly bankrolling losing industries, crony capitalism out the wazoo.
