GREG GUTFELD: When someone has a problem and it’s someone you care about, you should confront him. You’ve got to sit him down and say: this is serious. President Obama, you have a problem. Not with drugs or women or booze, it’s worse. You have a problem with golf and it’s getting weird.
Even for me, I never once cared, but now it’s strange. Think about it. You played golf after that press conference, after an appalling terrorist act. How was that possible? I have no problems with vacations and have grown to like your aloof take on our country’s decline.
I know you can’t change, but now something is wrong. You have a problem. You can’t see it, but it’s there. We all see it now. Golf is your Lewinski, it’s your bimbo eruption, it’s your blue dress, it’s your compulsion that blinds you to the hell unfolding around you.
How much of it occupies your head? How much time do you think about golf? Do you find yourself promising you’ll cut back? Do you find your life empty if you don’t a have round on the horizon? Do you see golf as your oasis in a world far beneath you?
Look, we all have compulsions and golf hurts no one. It’s legal and relaxing. But for God’s sakes, man, it’s time to lead. Plot a course instead of walking one. Show some drive instead of making one.
After an American is beheaded, no president should be heading to the course.
RUSH: CNN is noticeably down today, and you can see it, see the reason why in their own headlines. It’s starting to return to normal in Ferguson. And you can see, I mean, the credibility of key witnesses in question. It’s beginning to dawn on them that the myth might not prevail here.
And the reason the myth might not prevail is because even the New York Times, ladies and gentlemen, even though they tried to bury this in paragraph 26 yesterday and then another story today. It doesn’t matter whether the police officer had a broken eye socket or not — and there’s some question about that, people are questioning the original reporting that the cop’s eye socket, orbital socket was shattered. But it doesn’t matter.
He was still beaten up. He was still taken to the hospital. His face was swollen. The original story is falling apart. The gentle giant walking innocently down the street on the way to grandmother’s house, eagerly thinking about the soon-to-commence college classes, shot in the back by a racist white St. Louis cop, which happens way too often. That was the myth.
And the myth began to break down within a couple of hours, but then they got the myth back. And then it began to break down again, and they were able to rebuild it. And then about five days later the video was released and the gentle giant was no longer gentle. He was a thief. Forty-four dollar box of Swisher Sweets, and furthermore, he was abusive to the clerk, shoving him away as the clerk attempted to keep him from walking out of the store with the stolen cigars.
Then we learn from an autopsy conducted by the myth makers that the gentle giant was not shot from behind. (gasping) And then we learned that the gentle giant actually did reach into the car and may have attempted to get the cop’s gun. And so then a number of witnesses came forward, but many of them are beginning to lose credibility. And so the myth is getting a little harder to hold onto, because if there was ever any real media scrutiny involved, the myth could not survive.
The media was there so much, I mean, it was 24/7. It was impossible for the media to miss elements of the story. It was just in the cards that they were going to learn of several facts that dealt serious blows to the myth. So now the grand jury has begun hearing the evidence. The authorities say there will not be any charges or any adjudication of any kind until at least October, which again, by the way, part of a myth that is right before the November elections. But you can see that watching CNN, there’s not this confidence that the myth, as originally created, is gonna hold up, simply because it can’t.
RUSH: In an attempt here to comfort those of you at the New York Times and those of you at MSNBC and the other of you who are leftists who may be sad, may be disappointed, may be dejected, that Obama appears to have checked out. He’s playing golf. The job doesn’t interest him, or for whatever reason he’s not acting like you hoped he would. He’s not behaving like you hoped he would. He’s not doing things like you hoped he would. Let me just reassure you.
A president does not have to be fully immersed in policy, does not have to be fully engaged every day to destroy things. Obama can continue to destroy from the golf course. You can do that, as a part time president. You can see to it that the border remains open. You can see to it that Obamacare continues to destroy the greatest health care system in the world. You can do all that from the golf course.
In fact, you may be able to do even more from the golf course. You may be able to be even more destructive if people think you’ve checked out and don’t care. So I would caution you people on the left not to panic. Your guy doesn’t have to be in the Oval Office to continue to destroy what he thinks is illegitimate about the country.
