RUSH: When things go wrong, that’s on purpose, that’s how smart they are. They’re doing things wrong on purpose to set up the opposition to fall for tricks and ruses. They have so much blind faith that when they are confronted with the reality of the primarily brain-dead status of your average leftist, they don’t know what to do with it, and that could accurately describe Jon Stewart interviewing Pelosi. It was actually Thursday night on The Daily Show. It’s just one bite here that I want to play to give you an example.
Stewart says (paraphrasing), “Okay, so we’re gonna set up a health care website that is an exchange, and people are gonna come to it. Why is it so hard to get a company to execute that competently? Why can’t you set up a website?” Same question everybody else is asking. You had three years, you have access to the best and brightest, but you don’t need access to the best and brightest because you are the best and brightest. You Democrats, you liberals, you’re the cream of the cream, you’re the creme de la crop, you’re smarter than everyone, why can’t you set up a website that works?
PELOSI: I don’t know. And — the — the — as one —
STEWART: Oh. (laughing)
PELOSI: — who worked very hard — no, no, and that’s my question.
STEWART: Let me get the House minority leader here. I can ask her. Hold on. (laughter) Wait. What do you mean, you don’t know? How do you not know?
PELOSI: Well, it’s not my responsibility.
RUSH: Now, I don’t know why the website doesn’t work. I don’t know why Obamacare isn’t working. It isn’t my responsibility. Former Speaker of the House, current leader of the Democrats in the House. And I think this is a perfect jumping-off point. I think this little sound bite that took all of 14 seconds, that little sound bite is a perfect jumping-off point to illustrate for low-information voters, and everybody, what an incredible overreach the federal government has undertaken here.
Remember, this is the woman, Nancy Pelosi, who, when asked what was in the 2,200 pages of Obamacare, said, “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it.” What is that, we have to pass it to find out what’s in it? That exemplifies the arrogance or the stupidity of tearing apart a system we had, a health care system that insured 85% of the nation, and we tore that apart in order to supposedly insure the 15% that weren’t covered. Thirty million is what the number is, so I’m breaking down the percentages.
