RUSH: Bill O’Baxter was on Fox last night. Let’s get it. Let me find the sound bite. I happened to hit it first one. Number 12. Grab sound bite number 12. This is common. There are a lot of people, particularly on Fox — commentators, the hosts, the guests — saying it. This seems to be a theme within the Republican Party and on Fox.
O’REILLY: The question is, “Did President Obama know about the regulations and the language in the report?” I don’t believe he did because he didn’t read it. He doesn’t pay attention to details.
RUSH: “He didn’t know. He didn’t know what was going on. He had no idea about any of this, though. Well, let’s not hold him accountable. He didn’t know!” Now, to a certain extent, he doesn’t care about the details; he cares about the chaos. Because every day of chaos is one day closer to what he really wants, which is single payer. I don’t think it’s that he doesn’t know the details. I think it’s he doesn’t care.
Folks, I think he’s so far ahead of the Republican Party, they don’t know what’s hitting them every day — and the reason they don’t is because they fail to understand the ideology of the Democrat Party. The inside-the-Beltway thinking — I’m convinced of this now more than I’ve ever been. The inside-the-Beltway thinking has nothing to do with ideology. A liberal isn’t a liberal. A Democrat’s a Democrat.
