RUSH: This “pregnant woman in labor was prevented by authorities from crossing a Los Angeles street to a hospital Wednesday because the road had been closed for … Obama’s impending motorcade.
“The unidentified woman was barred from walking the few hundred feet to the hospital for at least 30 minutes as authorities waited for the president’s motorcade to [show up and] pass by…” One witness said, “I felt bad for her. It does happen when Obama comes to LA or I’m sure anywhere else. It paralyzes the city. It does make it complicated. You can’t do the things you had set out to do because the president is in town,’” which includes, apparently, giving birth.
So I think the Republicans have an ad here: “Obama Denies Woman Reproductive Rights,” and then you could ask a question: “What if she was crossing the street to Planned Parenthood to get an abortion? Do you think they would have let her cross?” (interruption) What are you smirking in there for? I think it’s a darn good question.
Here’s a woman who wants to cross-street and give birth. Can’t. Obama’s due! “I have to get across the street for an abortion, and it has to be done within a few minutes. I gotta go! There’s Planned Parenthood!” Okay, okay. Obama would have approved it. “Come on.” I know it may be a bit of a stretch, but it could be a fun ad.
RUSH: But about Koskinen, as he explains all this, I think it’s pretty clear — let me read the paragraph to you from Fox News. “IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, testifying before a House oversight subcommittee, stressed that he does not know ‘how they found them’ or ‘whether there’s anything on them or not.’ But he said the inspector general’s office advised him the investigators are reviewing tapes to see if they contain any ‘recoverable’ material.”
Now, at this point it’s safe to assume Mr. Koskinen doesn’t know much, if anything, that’s going on at the IRS. “The revelation is significant because the IRS claimed, when the agency first told Congress about the missing emails, that backup tapes ‘no longer exist because they have been recycled,’” and now they found the backup tapes. A-ha. Now, we still don’t know whether the tapes that the inspector general has contain any Lois Lerner e-mails. We don’t know that yet. We’re relying on the IG here to be forthcoming, but it’s still the Regime investigating itself here. But Koskinen has assured us that the investigators are now checking. In other words, they’re investigating. What’s the hurry? There’s no hurry. We got until the November elections to find all this out.
