RUSH: Americans are angry, there’s no question about it, Americans are angry and in a foul mood, but why? Democrats and the media have put the whole country in a foul mood because Democrats in the media are in a foul mood, and they want everybody to be as miserable and angry as they are. They think that’s the key to electoral victory. And guess who has created it? If I’m Obama, and I look at the Zogby poll, I do one of my ads, say this is Hillary Clinton, you know, put a mug shot-type picture up there: ‘This is Hillary Clinton, this woman can’t do anything right. She and her comrades have created the very negative, angry environment that turns out to be what’s upsetting you. If you want to know why you’re mad, look at this woman, who can’t do anything right. I’m Barack Obama, and I paid for this ad, and I’m now on a train out of the country.’
RUSH: This is yesterday in Des Moines, Iowa. One of the moderators, Michelle Norris asks of Mrs. Clinton, ‘When you traveled to China, and then when you returned to the White House, did you advise your husband on Chinese foreign policy, or on foreign policy in regard to any other countries that you traveled to?’
HILLARY (haughtily): I certainly did! I not only advised, I often met with he and his —
RUSH: Stop the tape. Stop the tape and recue it. We know exactly what her advice was: ‘Get all the damn cash from these people in China that you can, Bill, because we’re going to need it for our legal defense fund because of your damn playing around.’ Here’s the answer again. You listen to it in that context.
HILLARY (haughtily): I certainly did! I not only advised, I often met with he and his advisors, both in preparation for, during, and after. I traveled with representatives from the Security Council, the State Department, occasionally the Defense Department and even the CIA. So I was deeply involved in being part of the Clinton team in the first Clinton administration.
RUSH: Hell, yes. You had 500 FBI files! You left the FBI out. But where are the documents that tell us what she did? They’re still tied up, in the National Archives, supposedly, at the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor in Arkansas, and Bruce Lindsey’s under guard and key, lock and key, with those documents, and Clinton says (Bill Clinton impression), ‘I tell you, Limbaugh, you know I’m not lying about this. I tell you I’m going to get those papers out there as fast as I can. I had nothing to do with it. We’re trying to speed up the process, but there’s gazillions of those things in there. You know how much that woman talked to me? We have documents on all that stuff, and most of it was screaming at me! We can’t put that kind of stuff out. What are people going to think of me? I’m going to look like a wuss. I’m going to look like an absolute pimp, and all I’m doing is getting yelled at by my wife throwing lamps and stuff. I can’t release that stuff, Limbaugh. You ought to know that.’
I love channeling Clinton. I just do. Well, she says she’s done all this stuff. We’re just supposed to take her word for it, when she can’t do anything right and yet we’re supposed to take her word for this — she’s done all these great things in foreign policy? Good Lord! Well, she traveled, too. I’ll guarantee you he didn’t like that. (Bill Clinton impression)’What do you mean Hillary’s going on this trip again? Damn it! Damn it to hell. Let’s cancel the trip. It won’t be any fun.’ She can’t get anything right, and now she’s telling us she’s done all these wonderful things in the first Clinton term. I guess that means the first four years. (laughs) There wasn’t much foreign policy in the second term. (laughter)
RUSH: Right as the program was ending yesterday, we had a story cross the wire that Bill Clinton was out there in New Hampshire whining and moaning about the unfair coverage that his wife is getting in the Drive-By Media. Now, of course, that’s absurd, but the Clintons are playing victim. And so we have the audio here of what President Clinton said. It’s web quality, but you can still hear it.
BILL CLINTON: One percent of the press coverage was devoted to their record in public life. No wonder people think experience is irrelevant. A lot of people covering the race think it is. Fifteen percent was devoted to their life stories. That’s legitimate. We all want to know about people who want to be president. Seventeen percent was devoted to their proposals for the future, and 67% of the coverage was pure politics. Stuff that has a half-life of about 15 seconds, won’t matter tomorrow, is very vulnerable to being slanted and moved, and it won’t affect your life.
RUSH: Right, he’s upset here that only 1% of the press coverage is devoted to their record in public life, meaning Hillary’s claim that she is experienced is being shortchanged by the Drive-By Media. Let’s go back, let’s listen to Hillary again describe her experience in this question and from the debate yesterday, ‘When you travel to China and then when you return to the White House, did you advise your husband on Chinese foreign policy or on foreign policy regarding any of the countries that you traveled to?’
HILLARY CLINTON: I certainly did. I not only advised, I often met with he and his advisors, both in preparation for, during, and after. I traveled with representatives from the Security Council, the State Department, and occasionally the Defense Department, and even the CIA. So I was deeply involved in being part of the Clinton team in the first Clinton administration.
RUSH: What did she do? She traveled with people! She can’t get anything right. She traveled with people. She traveled with representatives from the Security Council, the State Department, occasionally the Defense Department, and even the CIA. ‘I was deeply involved.’ It’s hard to believe this because, A, it’s a Clinton saying it, but B, more importantly, remember, it wasn’t that long ago, a month or so ago, that Bill Clinton came out and said (doing Clinton impression), ‘Hey, by the way, that health-care fiasco, that wasn’t Hillary, that was my idea, that’s all on me. She really didn’t run that program. I mean, she helped set it up and so forth, but I botched that up, blew that all to hell. It was my problem, not hers.’ So Bill Clinton has come out and said she didn’t even do that. Now she traveled. I’m telling you, if they had any evidence, documents, that showed her experience in a favorable light, they’d get it out there. Why is she qualified for health care? Because she cares about children, and she has fought for children for 35 years, she has fought for women’s issues. She’s been attacked, and from this we are to conclude that she has massive amounts of experience.
