Limbaugh Has A ‘Creeping Sense’ That The ‘Left Is Losing MOMENTUM’

RUSH: Okay, over here, folks, I’ve had a bit of a — I don’t know what you call it — a creeping sense, a feeling, and I’m very alarmed when this happens because I don’t want to be wrong about it. And I try to remain objective during all these things, but I just get the sense — and I alluded to this a little bit on Friday — that this entire thing — it came after that Washington Post story, that huge opus, 36 pages — remember, we talked about that, 36 pages. I even highlighted and excerpted from it.

Page 25, they had to admit, no evidence the Russians did a thing with votes, voting machines, or any of that. There has been a weekend to digest this story now, and I had a sense with this story being published that something’s turning, something’s shifting. That the momentum, if you will, seems to be losing, or the left seems to be losing some of their momentum. I mean in the Drive-By Media and out there. They’ve never had anything go on as far as I’m concerned. There’s never been anything here; that has been fake news from the get the go.

But after all of these months of producing nothing and now more and more news showing that there’s been real collusion among Democrats, maybe Comey, maybe Lynch. That Washington Post story, the left-wing reaction to that story is amazing. There are people out there today on the left livid at Barack Obama. Because what did the Washington Post story say? Essentially that Obama and his team knew what the Russians were doing, they were trying to steal the election for Donald Trump. They wanted to make sure Hillary lost, and Obama knew it.

I don’t know if the people that wrote this Washington Post story intended this, but they ended up writing something that prints to 36 pages which basically says that Obama knew everything going on. By the way, this is all bohunk anyway. It’s all BS. But, anyway, I’ll play long with it as written, for the sake of this discussion. Obama knew about it, Brennan knew about it, CIA guy, all of these intelligence people knew about it, quote, unquote, and didn’t stop it. Didn’t do anything other than Obama calling Putin and saying, “Cut it out.” Other than Obama calling Putin and saying, “You better stop it or else.”

I mean, it’s laughable. And all they did in the end was expel 35 Russian diplomats, and that happened in December after the election. And there was even one Obama administration official, unnamed, who claimed, “Yeah, we choked. We choked. We didn’t do anything about it.” The people on the left and even some of the Never Trumpers on our side who believe this garbage actually now are ticked off at Obama for not doing anything about it.

LIMBAUGH: WaPo Story Portrays Obama As A ‘Spineless, Linguini Wimp’

RUSH: Okay. So here you go: “They note that by August it was too late [sobbing] to prevent the transfer to WikiLeaks and other groups of the troves of emails that would spill out in the ensuing months.” So whatever Russians had hacked, which this was not a Russian hack. This is Podesta’s goof-up with his phishing. The Obama people “believe that a series of warnings — including one that Obama delivered to Putin in September — prompted Moscow to abandon any plans of further aggression, such as sabotage of U.S. voting systems.”

Okay, so what did Obama do? What Obama do that scared the Russians into stopping? Well, later in this — like many, many pages you have to read to get to what Obama did. “A month later, Obama confronted Putin directly during a meeting of world leaders in Hangzhou, China. Accompanied only by interpreters, Obama told Putin that ‘we knew what [you’re] doing and [you] better stop or else.’” Before that, Obama had told Putin to “cut it out.” This warning was: “[You] better stop or else,” and they believed that Putin was practically wetting his pants in fear over that.

After Obama told Putin “[W]e knew what [you’re] doing and [you] better stop or else,” the Obama administration felt confident that Russia’s attempts to sabotage the election would go no further. But of course they did. Russia’s efforts continued, and how does Obama know? (chuckles) Hillary lost. This piece — contrary to its purported purpose, to portray Obama as a brave president struggling with how to punish, how to stop Russia, this story — portrays Obama as a spineless, linguini wimp who was unable to do what was necessary to stop the Russians from cheating for Trump. If you read this, that’s what you would come away with, if you could forget the headline that you saw.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Barack Obama Didn’t Stop Russia From HACKING Anything

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.
