RUSH: I want to get to these Ashton Kutcher sound bites. I want to keep things in some semblance of order and organization. This is Sunday night, the Ultimate Choice Award he got at the Teen Choice Awards. He stars as Steve Jobs in the movie “Jobs.” By the way, I will be reviewing that movie. I got my official, powerful, influential member of the media copy. They even went so far as to close caption it so I can actually see the dialogue as I watch the movie. Just came in today. I’m gonna try to watch it later this afternoon. We have three sound bites from Kutcher here. The Teen Choice Awards, low-information audience. I want you to listen to this. Here’s the first one.
KUTCHER: I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work. I’ve never had a job in my life that I was better than. I was always just lucky to have a job. And every job I had was a steppingstone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job. And so opportunities look a lot like work.
RUSH: Right on. Now, don’t ho-hum this, folks. This is a message that young kids today are not hearing except maybe in their homes from their parents, but they’re not hearing this. They’re not hearing this from Obama. They’re not hearing this from presidential or political leadership. This kind of message of hard work, the traditional American route to success and happiness is what’s being made fun of, it’s what’s being said is not possible anymore. The reason why there is a malaise, this fog of depression that has rolled in over this whole country, is because young people particularly don’t think there’s any opportunity for them. They don’t think there’s any left. They don’t believe there’s any prosperity out there for them.
