RUSH: I think this is a good time to once again remind you of something that happened on this program, what is today? One week ago today.
I asked a question on this program just a week ago. One of the items up for discussion was Mrs. Clinton and her public criticism of Obama. She was very public in criticizing Obama’s foreign policy, which led people to go ask Obama about it. And he answered by saying it was horse manure. That then led to the big party on Martha’s Vineyard late last week or early this, whenever it was, at Vernon Jordan’s palatial mansion, where there was gonna be a hug-in. Yes, Hillary and Bill were gonna show up, and Barack and Michelle, and they were gonna hug, and they were gonna make up, and it was all gonna be so beautiful, and it didn’t happen.
Well, all of that was because Hillary started publicly criticizing Obama. And now in the interim, since then, we’ve had this horrible beheading of an American journalist by ISIS, and a week ago today I asked, “Is the reason Hillary is separating now, because she knows how bad it is?” She was up close, she knows much more than you and I about foreign policy and whatever errors and mistakes have been made, that she doesn’t want to be anywhere near when they blow up. I do not doubt that for a minute.
So I think now, in the aftermath of the death of James Foley, the question, does Hillary know how bad things are going to be get? I wonder if she knew how bad this ISIS business was. I wonder if she knew that we had mounted a failed rescue effort, and I wonder what else she knows that we don’t that dictates her separation. ‘Cause I guarantee you, there’s more.
