RUSH: For example, “March of 2007, Hillary Clinton’s chief strategist Mark Penn wrote a campaign memo that proposed painting Barack Obama as un-American.” This is from the memo itself:
“[Obama’s] roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited. I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.”
This is Mark Penn, chief strategist for Hillary, advising her campaign on the ways they were gonna go about attacking Obama, and one of the things they were gonna do, “Look, we’re at a time of war, this guy, we’re not sure that he really is pro-America. We don’t know where he’s from.” They’re pushing the meme that he’s Muslim and the birther aspects. It was the Hillary campaign that got all of this started. People just either didn’t pay attention to it back then or have forgotten.
But everything she’s accused Trump of doing she did, her campaign led. And, folks, I remember it. One of the reasons I did Operation Chaos, to keep her campaign alive. But I remember some of the things that she was saying about Obama. And I made mention of them here, because this was Democrat-on-Democrat kind of crime. She was saying things that supposedly Democrats don’t even think about African-Americans. She was characterizing Obama in ways that we’re told Democrats never, ever do.
