RUSH: Byron York of the Washington Examiner was in Chicago yesterday. He was listening to a rally for Democrats being led by Bill Clinton. He showed up 90 minutes late. People left the rally in the middle of a deader-than-a-doornail presentation by Clinton. And Byron is asking the question, ‘Does Clinton on the stump really want Obama and the Democrats to win?’ Hillary Clinton is out of the country. She is nowhere helping the Democrats. By the way, are there any Democrats on the ballot? As I listen to all of these campaign ads and commercials around the country, aside from California it makes me wonder how we could possibly have a fair election because I don’t hear any Democrats running for office, at least not on the issues they’re talking about. In West Virginia, Manchin is sounding exactly like a conservative Republican.

Most Democrats are running away from Obamacare, and Clinton — this is from last night’s ABC World News tonight — Jonathan Karl interviewed Clinton after this rally, I mean it was a dud. Listen to the report from our blowtorch affiliate in Chicago, WLS: ‘Former President Bill Clinton’s ‘get out the vote’ rally for Democrats at a downtown Chicago hotel was the most unenthusiastic WLS veteran political reporter Bill Cameron has ever witnessed. Clinton was an hour late for the Tuesday afternoon rally at the Palmer House and droned on for another hour, sending dozens of the few hundred Democrats in attendance for the exits. ‘Well, all we’re really asking for is two more years, that’s a total of four, to get us out of the hole and get us into the future. That’s half as much time as you gave them to dig the hole. Seems fair to us,’ Clinton said.’ That’s Clinton’s big push: give us two more years because you gave them four years to get us in the hole, give us two years, total four, to get out.

‘The state’s most popular Democrat Lisa Madigan was conspicuously absent as were state party chairman Mike Madigan and Mayor Richard Daley.’ Man, when Daley doesn’t show up to appear on the same dais with Clinton? When all these ranking Democrats don’t show up to appear with Bill? What they know is when Clinton shows up, it’s a death knell. Clinton showing up is like Geraldo Rivera showing up on Fox. Somebody’s died; the grim reaper. I mean you check it out, folks, Clinton’s endorsements end up hurting whoever he’s trying to help. Here is Clinton answering the question from Jonathan Karl. ‘How bad do you fear it could be?’

CLINTON: It’s what happened to me in ’94. You get in and you want to do things. There’s almost an inverse relationship in how much you accomplish and what people know about. We’re getting there. President’s getting out and around, and I see a lot more intensity at these rallies now in the last three weeks. I think it would be a great mistake to count us out. Words of our demise have been exaggerated.

RUSH: This is resounding. I mean that’s inspiring. Byron York of the DC Examiner: ‘The problem was, it wasn’t entirely clear how much Clinton really wanted to help Democrats, and especially Obama, win next week’s elections. In the course of a one-hour speech, Clinton, whose wife lost a bitter nomination battle to Obama … offered faint praise for the current president and a steady stream of criticism for Democrats, who he said have failed to communicate their message to the voters.’ What you’re looking at is Reverse Operation Chaos. It is happening right before your very eyes and ears. Reverse Operation Chaos. For those of you new to the program and do not know what Operation Chaos was, in the primaries of 2008 Obama and Hillary were fighting it out, apparently taking it all the way to the end of the primary battles. McCain had already been chosen and the Republican nomination race was over. As far as this audience interest in the primaries, it was nil. McCain had won it, and that was not all that exciting.

Yet the Democrat race went on and I was noticing how poorly Hillary Clinton was being treated by her own party, a race that from the beginning was hers, almost by entitlement. And then this clean, articulate black guy shows up and the press goes gaga, and what was Hillary’s was snatched from her. And they were running mean commercials against her. And I thought, ‘Well, this race needs to be continued. Obama needs to continue to fight this out. We need to have this race continue so people can find out exactly who and what these Democrats are.’ Operation Chaos instructed Republican primary voters in the remaining states where their votes didn’t count because the Republican race was over, to register as Democrats if necessary and to go vote for Hillary in the remaining states in the Democrat primary to keep this thing going, and it worked. It took the race all the way to the summertime.

Operation Reverse Chaos or Reverse Operation Chaos, whichever you wish to call it, is once again established so as to allow Hillary Clinton what is rightfully hers: an opportunity to win the White House. It was hers. She had been anointed, and then Obama comes along and for whatever reason they pulled the rug out from under her. The Clintons still want the White House, bad. You can tell how bad by how unenthusiastic Bill Clinton is running around the country campaigning for Democrats, for Obama. Because Clinton and Hillary know that their best chance for her to get the nomination in 2012 is for the Democrats to have a lackluster performance next Tuesday. The worse the defeat is, the worse it is for Obama. As Obama said, and he’s agreeing with me, he’s not on the ballot but his agenda is. Damn straight it is. That’s exactly what’s being voted on Tuesday: Obama’s agenda. Therefore, the greater the Republican victory is, the greater the opportunity for Hillary to challenge Obama for the nomination in 2012. They don’t want to wait ’til 2016. The odds of the White House being held by Democrats after 2016 is practically nil after what Obama is going to finish doing destroying the country in four more years if that happens.

So the objective here of Reverse Operation Chaos, we’re not aiming this at Republican voters. We’re aiming Reverse Operation Chaos at Democrats, especially those of you who are for Hillary and believe she got the shaft, politically, who believe that she was mistreated, who believe that dirty campaigning took away from her what was rightfully hers and gave it to another. It’s just typical of what happens to women in this country. An unqualified guy, young, good-looking, I mean there were even people — I don’t know if you remember this, I’ll tell you how unfair it was for Hillary — there were people in the primary actually saying, ‘Did we really want to sit here and watch Hillary Clinton age in office?’ There were people saying that. There were all kinds of things like this being said. It was mostly unfair, it was terribly insulting that a guy with no experience but everybody liked his looks and the way he talked came in once again, the glass ceiling shattered with Mrs. Clinton’s head banging right into it but never through it, and so now it’s time to make good, time to get even.

You Democrats who know that your party is being destroyed by Barack Obama, you Democrats who know that your chances of ever holding power in Congress again are vanishing before your very eyes because of Obama, you Democrats, you may have problems with this country, but you don’t want to see it destroyed. If you have any desire that Mrs. Clinton someday take the Democrat Party back to where it was, remember those glory days of the nineties, the economic boom, we’d all like to return to those, wouldn’t we? Wink, wink. The best thing that Democrats can do to make that happen is to not vote Tuesday. Stay home, put your feet up on the table, watch a soap opera or two, watch Oprah, do whatever, listen to this program, but do not vote, do not show. The bigger the Democrat defeat on Tuesday, the greater the likelihood Mrs. Clinton is the Democrat nominee in 2012. It’s just that simple. Reverse Operation Chaos, once again in fairness, look at who it is looking out for the woman. Look who it is hoping that a woman has a fair shot at things, me, El Rushbo and the Excellence in Broadcasting Network. It really isn’t complicated.

I know that you are worried, some of you Democrats are. But, look, there’s so much fraud and cheating planned by Democrats, ‘I’m probably gonna vote even if I don’t show up. My vote is going to happen even if I don’t cast it.’ I know you’re thinking that. Make that be the case. Make them cheat. Do not participate in this election if you are Democrats, if you at all are interested in saving your party, and perhaps if you care about saving the country. I know that’s incidental to some of you. But if you want to save your party, save the country, if you want Mrs. Clinton and her husband to have a shot to get back in the White House, the only way you can do it is to make sure she has a chance to be on the ballot in the primaries in 2012. And the only way she is going to have a chance of pulling that off is if the Democrats get literally shellacked on Tuesday, because Obama has said he’s not on the ballot but his agenda is. Therefore he’s admitted the election is about him to the extent that Democrats get trashed — and you can make it happen, Democrats — you know you’re going to lose anyway. You know the Republicans are gonna win the House and you know the Republicans are probably gonna win the Senate. So what the hell? You can’t help anything by showing up. The only way you can help is not show up. Make your non-vote count. Sit home November 2nd. Do it for Hillary and for me: Reverse Operation Chaos.


RUSH: Democrats, give your defeat meaning. Make your shellacking worth it. Find value in losing next Tuesday. Don’t vote. Help Hillary. It has been pointed out to me, by the way, ladies and gentlemen, that a genuine Reverse Operation Chaos would be Democrats who hope to see Hillary as the Democrat nominee in 2012 vote Republican on Tuesday. If you can’t bring yourself to do that — if you Democrats, even if you want Hillary for 2012 — if you can’t stomach going to ballot box voting for a Republican, then be a Hillary potato. Sit on the couch for Hillary on Election Day. Reverse Operation Chaos. Even if you’re dead, don’t vote. Even if you are in prison, don’t vote. And, look, just because Obama’s botched it doesn’t mean that Hillary will.

The principles of Saul Alinsky have not failed! You just haven’t had the right person applying them. Hillary wrote her college thesis on Saul Alinsky. She could make his ideas sing where Obama has sullied them. Now, I know by her own admission the hardest thing Hillary has ever done in her life is organize her daughter’s wedding. She said that. But that still puts her one up on Obama because he is the most unqualified imam, guy in any room he walks into. By the way, speaking Clinton, ladies and gentlemen, this Wednesday (that’s today) Clinton and Attorney General Andrew the Como ‘will rally Democrats to get out and vote in Brooklyn… Doors open at 3 pm at New York City College of Technology Klitgord Center…’ Klitgord Center? ‘With just a week left until the election, it’s time to show that Democrats are energized and ready to take on the challenges facing this state.’ Why…? If Andrew the Como has such a commanding lead, why is the Big Kahuna being sent into New York? What’s Clinton doing in Illinois? What’s Clinton doing in Chicago? What are Obama and Joe Bite Me doing in Delaware? And now they take Clinton into New York for Andrew the Como to Brooklyn.


RUSH: To the phones we go. Scottsdale, Arizona, this is Gina. Thanks for waiting, Gina. I appreciate it. You’re up first.

CALLER: Hey, Rush. It’s great to speak to you but you’re killing me with the Reverse Operation Chaos this morning.

RUSH: How so?

CALLER: I’m a recovering Democrat, and I was a Hillary supporter, and I’m working My Butt off trying to get the GOP elected. I’m taking part in the BetheWave2010.com, that FreedomWorks and Ace of Spades HQ did where you can adopt your local candidate and try to get —

RUSH: Right.

CALLER: — people to come out and help, and I just think with the margin of cheating we need the recovering Democrats who will vote GOP. I don’t want them to stay home. I want them to come out and they’re gonna come out and utterly reject the Obama agenda. I think we’re going to have a tsunami. I don’t want them to stay home. (laughs) Please, come, vote GOP!

RUSH: Well, if you listened to the entire presentation Reverse Operation Chaos —


RUSH: — it includes both options.

CALLER: Okay. All right. So you’re just encouraging people who were supporting Hillary but you think they might still be voting Democrat to not vote?

RUSH: Or vote Republican.

CALLER: Well, that’s what’s going to happen. I mean, nobody —

RUSH: Well, vote Republican. The key here… Look, psst? I mean, don’t tell anybody this, Gina. It’s just between us here.

CALLER: (giggles)

RUSH: But the point here is to get Democrats ticked off that Hillary got shafted.

CALLER: We’re there.

RUSH: All right. It’s to convince them the only way, the only way she has any chance is the Democrats have to go in the tank this election. Obama has said his agenda is on the ballot. It’s got to lose by landslide proportions everywhere.

CALLER: Right. Oh, it’s gotta be an epic fail so that they never, ever try this again.

RUSH: Right. Reverse Operation Chaos: Either don’t vote if you’re a Democrat — you know, be a Hillary potato.

CALLER: (bursts out laughing)

RUSH: Or vote Republican.

CALLER: But remember: In the ’08 primaries in Pennsylvania, Jimmy Hoffa, head of the Teamsters, said, ‘Oh, we’re going to have a big surprise for Hillary.’ They could not get the rank-and-file to vote Obama then.

RUSH: Right. Well, but that was then and this is now.
