RUSH: What shoulda happened yesterday, with that opportunity, the Health and Human Services secretary is a human being. The fact that she’s a woman is irrelevant. The fact that she is a white, wealthy, rich woman from flyover country is irrelevant. She is the incompetent boob running this show. She’s over her head. She hasn’t the slightest idea what she’s doing. This was a golden opportunity for the Republican Party to take action yesterday so that at the end of the day the American people were clamoring for this thing to be shut down, repealed, defunded, whatever. This was a teachable moment opportunity yesterday. This was an opportunity to expose the ideology of the left, and it was an opportunity, at the same time, to explain and teach the ideology of us, of the right.
They didn’t do that. They did do kid gloves. And here’s this Republican strategist wringing his hands, “Oh, my God, we came across as mean and it’s gonna make it look like we have this War on Women.” This timid, pansy behavior, scared to death of his own shadow, scared of what the media’s gonna say. They didn’t lay a hand on Sebelius, at the end of the day. They didn’t really lay a hand on Obamacare at the end of the day. It’s mind-boggling to me, the opportunity these hearings yesterday offered and presented to rally the American people.
