RUSH: Okay, we’re up to audio sound bite number six. The unbridled hate for Ted Cruz is striking. I think back to the Watergate days, the Nixon days. Those of you who were not alive then or were too young in the seventies and eighties to care or pay any attention to this kind of thing, I can’t describe for you how utterly despised Richard Nixon was by the Democrats of the day and the media.
You think that they hated George W. Bush or name anybody today that you think they hate, and you’re not even getting close to the almost rabid hatred for Richard Nixon. Now, you might be asking, “Well, what was it about?” There is an answer to this that engenders almost as much hate, but it is about a man by the name of Alger Hiss. Two things here. Alger Hiss was proven to be a communist spy back during forties and fifties.
The Democrat Party and the left of the day loved Alger Hiss, and they hated Nixon for exposing him. To this day, Nixon is hated for having exposed — successfully exposed — Alger Hiss as a communist spy working in the State Department. He was at the high levels, and Nixon got him, and they hated Nixon for it. Nixon also had the audacity to defeat a woman for public office by the name of Helen Douglas, Helen Gahagan Douglas.
