RUSH: We have audio in from the working women’s summit at the White House. And I want to play for you two sound bites — oh, sorry, it was not at the White House. The Working Families Summit was at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. So the working families don’t rate the East Room. Schlubs. Here’s Obama.
OBAMA: Anything that makes life harder for women makes life harder for families and makes life harder for children.
OBAMA: When women succeed, America succeeds, so there’s no such thing as a women’s issue, there’s no such thing as a women’s issue. (cheers and applause) There’s a family issue and an American issue. These are common sense issues.
RUSH: You know what amazes me? This guy has been president for almost six years and all he’s done is stand up every day and complain about another American problem. He’s president and yet he acts like he’s campaigning every day, which is the key to the Limbaugh Theorem, I know. But at some point don’t you do something about it? Six years. And every day he stands up complaining about something that’s wrong in this country. “Anything that makes life harder for women makes life harder for families and makes life harder for children.” And of course the room went nuts.
“When women succeed, America succeeds.” I guess it would be very controversial if I were to say, anything that makes life harder for men makes life harder for families. (interruption) All right, I’ll try it. Ladies and gentlemen, let me just tell you, anything that makes life harder for men is gonna make life harder for families. And if you make life harder for men, let me tell you what else you’re doing, you’re making life harder for children. And I’ll tell you something else that’s always been the case. When men succeed, America succeeds. There’s no such thing as a men’s issue. And there’s no such thing as a women’s issue. And there aren’t any things as family issues and American issues. ‘Cause all of this is Democrat claptrap. Okay, how does that fly, do you think? I think it resonates well with this audiences. It resonated with me.
