RUSH: I just cleared a story. It’s from the CNBC website, and it’s by somebody named Ben White. Doesn’t matter who it’s by. “Why is Obama Disconnected, Directionless?” He’s not! This is exactly — let me tell you. I’ve got a theory. Everybody talks about why is Obama going on so many vacations? To get headlines like this. To make it look like he’s detached.
How many stories have you seen, “You know what, Obama’s checked out. He doesn’t like the job anymore. He knows he’s gone. He doesn’t care. He’s on vacation all the time. He just doesn’t care.” How many stories like that are you seeing? A lot. Its exactly what they want you to see. Why does he go on so many vacations? To make it look like he is, what, disconnected, directionless, detached. It makes it look like he’s irritated to have to deal with this stuff. That’s why they say, “Ah, you know, he’s so far ahead of all of us. This stuff is just so beneath him.”
That’s why he takes so many vacations. I’m convinced he takes so many vacations to further this notion that he doesn’t know what’s going on, he doesn’t care. He’s not responsible. And he is responsible for all of this, folks, and all of this is about the elimination of any opposition, and I mean the wiping out of the Republican Party as a functioning, threatening opposition. That is the objective.
