LISTEN TO 21 MINUTE EXTENDED CLIP:
RUSH: You remember we talked about it yesterday. Obama blamed me for convincing you not to agree with Obama. He blamed me. See, you’re just a bunch of sponges, mind-numbed robots, not able to think on your own. They’re used to people being that way. Their own voters are mind-numbed robots. Their own voters are not curious. They’re not critical or independent thinkers. They just buy it hook, line, and sinker.
You don’t, and the reason you don’t is because of me and Fox News, and Obama’s really bothered by that. What this all means — and we’ve even got a sound bite from a Democrat consultant admitting it. What it all means is that… As the election for the House and the Senate, the midterms gear up in November, what it all means is that if things don’t change, Obama and the Democrats plan on running against me and Fox News.
If they’re going to do that, it means that they’ve got polling data that indicates to them that that energizes their base. Now, it is abundantly clear to Obama and Chuck-U Schumer that you are not gonna abandon me because they criticize me. They’re not gonna pick you up as voters because the rip me, and they’re not gonna pick you up as voters ’cause they rip Fox. (interruption) Well, no. They won’t.
So what are they trying to do? They’re not trying to pick you off; they’re not trying to convert you. They’re trying to rally their base. What that means is they got problems at home. What that means is that Obamacare and a whole bunch of other things have got their own base less than jazzed, less than excited. They’ve got focus group data (I know this is true) showing their base — Democrat voters — hate me.
