RUSH: Back to our old buddy Peter Beinart. He was on CNN last night with Erin Burnett OutFront, and they were talking about whether the Clintons are out of touch.
BEINART: The problem for people who are really wealthy is when you can match up their personal wealth with their policy and say, as Barack Obama did about Mitt Romney, he’s personally out of touch because he hangs out with rich people and his policies are gonna benefit the rich. Now, if Elizabeth Warren ran against Hillary Clinton from the left in the Democrat Party, she would say exactly that, it could hurt her. But in a general election with a Republican candidate who’s not likely to be able to argue that their policies are better for the poor than Hillary Clinton’s, I don’t think it’s as much of a liability.
RUSH: And you see, right there is the sum total of the problem. We are living Democrat policies to the max. The economy contracted 3%. People are out of work. A hundred million people aren’t working. We are living under Democrat policies, and the country is going to hell! We are living six years under Democrat policies. People have lost their health care. They have lost their jobs. They have lost their ambition. They have lost faith in the country. They’ve lost faith in themselves. Young people are hopeless. They’re not optimistic. They’re not ambitious. The Southern border is wide open. We are entertaining an inflow of a further group of people that’s uneducated and poor.
