RUSH: Let’s listen to Obama. This is yesterday in Las Vegas. He was at a Hillary campaign event.
OBAMA: For years Republican politicians and the far-right media outlets have pumped up all kinds of crazy stuff about me, about Hillary, about Harry. They said I wasn’t born here. They said climate change is a hoax. They said I was gonna take everybody’s guns away. So people have been hearing that, they start thinking, well, maybe it’s true. So if the world that they’ve been seeing is that I’m powerful enough to cause hurricanes on my own and to steal everybody’s guns in the middle of the night and impose martial law even though I can’t talk without a prompter, then is it any wonder that they end up nominating somebody like Donald Trump?
RUSH: This guy’s obsessed. This guy ought to be sitting on top of the world, folks. He ought to be sitting on top of the world. The Republican nominee for president is about to be vanquished in one of the biggest landslides in the history of this country, right? And the third term of this guy’s administration is about to be elected in a landslide unprecedented since 1964, right? Everybody that believes in Trump and everybody that believes in Republican conservatism is about to be vanquished to obscurity. It is so bad that even the Republican Party is getting ready to form a circular firing squad and start pulling the trigger on November 9th, hoping that talk radio and Fox News are in the middle of the circle.
And yet this guy is obsessed. This guy is obsessed with what critics are saying about him. Have you seen his approval numbers? His approval numbers are 55%. Who in the world believes this guys is gonna institute martial law? Who believes this guy is gonna come after their guns? Who believes this guy starts hurricanes? Isn’t that what they accused Bush of? These guys, for all intents and purposes, accused Bush of steering Hurricane Katrina to New Orleans. Don’t doubt me on this. There were left-wing websites all over the place saying Bush wanted that hurricane to wipe out New Orleans because he wanted to wipe out black people and he wanted the rest of the population to go to Texas where they’d be counted as Republicans. It was absurd what they were saying.
