RUSH: Now Hillary’s got a new ad out. I’ve seen the video of the ad. It really is sort of a takeoff on the little daisy ad that Johnson ran against Goldwater in 1964, the little girl out there picking daisies and all of a sudden nuclear detonation. They don’t actually show the nuclear detonation, the screen goes dark, and the idea was that Goldwater would be just dangerous, he’d start a nuclear war, we’d all be dead. So here is the ad. It’s entitled, ‘It’s three a.m., do you know where Bill Clinton is?’

ANNOUNCER: It’s three a.m., and your children are safe and asleep, but there’s a phone in the White House, and it’s ringing. Something’s happening in the world. Your vote will decide who answers that call. Whether it’s someone who already knows the world’s leaders, knows the military, someone tested and ready to lead in a dangerous world. It’s three a.m., and your children are safe and asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?

HILLARY: I’m Hillary Clinton, and I approved this message.

RUSH: By the way, for those of you wondering there is no video of Hillary in bed answering the phone, but it is sort of dark, this commercial. Now, no mention of Bill. That’s why I said, ‘It’s three a.m., do you know where Bill Clinton is?’ Obama’s mad. Obama’s mad at the ad. (laughing) Obama ‘accused his rival Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday of trying to ‘scare up votes’ with a television ad showing sleeping children and asking who would be more qualified to answer a national security emergency call at 3 a.m. ‘We’ve seen these ads before,’ the Illinois senator said while campaigning in Texas. ‘They’re the kind that play on peoples’ fears to scare up votes. Well, it won’t work this time. Because the question is not about picking up the phone. The question is: What kind of judgment will you make when you answer?” (laughing) I mean, you gotta give the point to Obama. Here’s George Stephanopoulos, Good Morning America today, Chris Cuomo talking to Stephanopoulos, they play the ad, Cuomo says, ‘Well, imagery, the angle is obvious. It does smack of some earlier campaigns that were not successful, right, George? Well, what do you think makes this work from Hillary’s perspective?’

STEPHANOPOULOS: This is the nuclear option. This is the big gun. It’s either going to work or it’s going to blow back against the person who’s running it. Now, it does have echoes of the infamous 1964 ad, the daisy ad. Lyndon Johnson ran that against Barry Goldwater, only ran it once. You see a nuclear cloud coming up behind the little girl there. It has even more echoes of the ad that ran in 1984 when former vice president Walter Mondale was running against Gary Hart, the insurgent fresh face in the campaign, and all you saw was that red phone ringing on the desk of the Oval Office.

RUSH: Oh, this is just too delicious. All the whining, Hillary complaining that the women are abandoning –well, women complaining that women are abandoning her and that she’s going to make a move to get women votes. The complaining about a white comedian playing Obama on Saturday Night Live, can’t use his middle name, can’t call him a liberal, it’s just too juicy. Made to order.


RUSH: Okay, Obama? Somebody in the Obama campaign, listen up. Yo! We have a way for you to respond to Hillary’s ad that you don’t dig. By the way, I think that ad is one of the greatest ads, for McCain, that could be produced! (laughs) I mean if you’re serious about having somebody knows what they’re doing at three a.m. when the phone rings and it’s the national emergency, there’s one person of these three that is imminently qualified. That’s a great ad for McCain that the Democrats are running. It’s a good thing, because McCain’s out of money. But here Obama and anybody in the Obama campaign, is a perfect way to respond. You gotta do this light heartedly. You people are whining too much. You are moaning. Your whole campaign is going, ‘Oh, woe is us.’ You’re bigger than that. You’re running for president of the United States! You’re carrying the torch for a lot of people here. So you need to produce your own ad. You go back and you make it look as similar to Hillary’s ad as possible. It’s 3:15. The phone, which started ringing at three o’clock, is still ringing.

Nobody’s answered it, because Hillary is beating the hell out of Bill for just showing up after a night out with an intern or whatever — and then you have your little text or your audio track, which says, ‘It’s not a question of who’s going to be there at three o’clock in the morning. It is, ‘At 3:15, will somebody actually have answered the phone by then instead of trying to corral a family member who cannot obey?’ Or some such thing as this, and make it funny. I mean, look, folks, you don’t know. I think this is true. I think there are some real hard feelings creeping into all this now. I think Clinton and Hillary are seething at what’s happened to them here. They’re seething that the media’s now treating them like Republicans. They are angry at the Drive-Bys for giving Obama a total pass on virtually everything. The Clintons… She said they’re going to bring out the kitchen sink, which is an interesting thing. That’s quite a role reversal for a feminist leader to start talking about using the kitchen sink, which is what feminists taught women to avoid. Let somebody else go to the kitchen sink.

Here’s Hillary throwing the kitchen sink including the picture, any number of things, and they are all backfiring. For you Clintons, I got a way for you to respond to Obama, particularly Michelle Obama — and I know, if you’re Bill and Hillary, if you’re the Clinton campaign; Michelle Obama rips you a new one. You can’t stand her. None of this is making any sense. None of this computes. You people were the first black president and co-president. None of this makes any sense. Now this woman, Michelle Obama, is out there kicking Hillary in the uterus over the way she raised Chelsea. So, Michelle Obama is out there urging all these poor people in Zanesville, Ohio, to avoid hedge funds, corporate law, or anything else corporate. Well, for all of these years the feminazis had been beating up women in this country around the ears — just pounding them constantly — trying to convince American women that they should not be nurses, that they should not be teachers. They should not be mothers or social workers. They should not do the traditional female nurturing things. They should not be helpers.

They were supposed to go out in the corporate world! They were supposed to climb the corporate ladder, and they were supposed to blast through the corporate ceiling, the glass ceiling. They were supposed to become lawyers; they were supposed to become business people. So, Mrs. Clinton, what the hell is it now? Michelle Obama’s not for women; she’s for the subjugation of women! She is for the subordination of women. Michelle Obama wants to keep women barefoot and pregnant and poor, in the home at the kitchen — or cleaning somebody’s bedpan in the hospital. You guys are getting too wrapped up here in personality. You need somebody like me running both these campaigns. I have the perfect Obama response ad. I have the perfect Hillary response to Michelle Obama after the kick in the uterus over Chelsea and the way she was raised. I don’t want to have to play funeral music next Wednesday, folks, when Mrs. Clinton gets blown out, here. I really don’t. I want this to go on. You couldn’t write a script and ask for this and get it, and we’ve got it.
