Limbaugh Ponders Saving Nancy Pelosi With Another ‘OPERATION CHAOS’

RUSH: Nope. I’m not thinking about saving Pelosi. The argument is: Do we want to save Pelosi or do we want to let Democrat nature take its course? And it all comes down to what will help us advance our agenda. And if Nancy Pelosi being the face of the Democrats in the House, and with Nancy Pelosi being the voice of the Democrats in the House, it might well be that we want her to stay there. If we judge that she would be beneficial. Does she represent the Democrats in a way that we think is helpful to our cause?

I don’t think there’s any question about that. Snerdley is devoted to Pelosi staying where she is, prominently as she can be because of her, quite frankly, beneficial aspects to us. (interruption) Snerdley is now saying, “I have to say…” Is she in that great…? (interruption) Well, I know some of them are. I know some Democrat congressmen are unhappy, but she’s mounting a good defense. She’s out there saying she’s very needed, that she’s one of the best shepherds of legislation there is. She’s fighting back against these people.

She’s not going away. I don’t know. I hadn’t even thought about it. On the scale of things that are important to me today, Nancy Pelosi doesn’t register, and now that you’ve made me think about it, you’re actually ruining the day, ’cause you’re right. I have to think about this. It is funny when we see liberal-on-liberal crime like Jeh Johnson on Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz yesterday. And I kind of like that, the longer that can go on.

But what’s always fun to factor is, if we mount a major campaign here like we did with Operation Chaos, to save the Hillary presidential campaign in 2008… We extended Hillary’s campaign by three months, minimum. I’ll tell you why. If you weren’t here, it was called Operation Chaos. The Republican primaries were over. McCain had already wrapped it up. So there was no dram on the Republican side — and (chuckles) there wasn’t any excitement, either, since McCain had gotten the nomination.

People on you are side were down in the dumps and depressed and we had to do something about that. The Democrat race was still underway. Obama was ahead. Hillary still chance. There was a debate over superdelegates, but there were some open states remaining and I encouraged Republicans in these states where their votes didn’t matter (because McCain had already been chosen the nominee) to switch parties or go independent and vote in the Democrat primary in Indiana… I forget the other two or three states.

Pennsylvania was one, Indiana. I encouraged people, Republicans, to cross over and vote for Hillary in the Democrat primary, and then after that come back and reregister Republican just to sustain the Democrat campaign in order for the entertainment value to continue providing material for the program, ’cause we’re talking February here. February, March, and McCain’s already wrapped it up. So we had Operation Chaos, and her campaign lasted ’til June, and it was arguably… Operation Chaos played a role. It was such a big role, Georgia Clooney made a movie about it: The Ides of March.
