RUSH: Barry did it! Barry did it again! He killed another bad guy. Barry did it! Now, Hillary is over there, and she might want to take credit for pulling the trigger, but Barry did it, folks. Mubarak gone. Ali Velshi or whatever of Tunisia gone, Bin Laden gone, Khadafy gone, Barry did it! The Drive-Bys are having orgasms. We’ve never had this competent a foreign policy president ever. Why, this guy, Barry, has done what eight presidents starting with Nixon couldn’t do. Reagan tried it. Nixon tried it. Every president since Nixon tried to get rid of Khadafy, but Barry did it.

Greetings, my friends. How are you? Great to have you. Rush Limbaugh back in the saddle, as they say, here at the Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies. Telephone number if you want to be on the program, 800-282-2882, and the e-mail address, ElRushbo@eibnet.com.

The Drive-Bys are going batty here, folks, over military action. Normally they don’t like a victorious United States. Well, they do when a Democrat president’s behind it, but, boy, they’re just so excited. Barry did it! Barry did it! It’s almost like Barry pulled the trigger. But, ladies and gentlemen, I want to take you back to this year, May 28th in New York City at the Salem United Methodist Church. ‘Cause when I heard today that Khadafy was taken out, I said, “You know, this is not gonna make Calypso Louie happy, and this is not gonna make Reverend Wright happy.” Reverend Wright and Calypso Louie, Minister Farrakhan, loved Khadafy. We know that Farrakhan went over there a number of times. Didn’t Reverend Wright go over there a number of times? They were close, they were tight, they were bros. And here is Calypso Louie May 28th of this year in New York City, the Salem United Methodist Church during an American clergy leadership conference event

FARRAKHAN: America can sit down tyrants, but who will sit her down? She puts her trust in her weapons of war. She threatens the nations of the earth and has my brother calling for the assassination of brother Moammar Khadafy. What has he done? You’ve been deceived. That’s a murderer in the White House! Who will say it? I will! Because I have a power behind me that is bringing America to judgment as we speak. Don’t be afraid! I’m talking.

RUSH: Does that not sound a lot like Wright, the cadence and the voice, timbre? That was Farrakhan, but it sounded just like Reverend Wright. “There’s a murderer in the White House!” We’ve also got another bite, I’ve got Cookie trying to track it down. I just remembered it moments ago, but it’s Farrakhan saying to Obama, “Who are you? Who are you to say.” Listen to this bite again and listen to how much it sounds like Reverend Wright.

FARRAKHAN: America can sit down tyrants, but who will sit her down? She puts her trust in her weapons of war. She threatens the nations of the earth and has my brother calling for the assassination of brother Moammar Khadafy. What has he done? You’ve been deceived. That’s a murderer in the White House! Who will say it? I will! Because I have a power behind me that is bringing America to judgment as we speak. Don’t be afraid! I’m talking.

RUSH: Mike, I’m gonna switch everything up from what I told audio sound bite-wise. We’ll just stick with this and we’ll get to the other stuff in due course. But I’m gonna stick with the Khadafy subject. Yeah, we’re gonna get to the debate and my thoughts on it. Folks, there were parts of that debate I was laughing my a– off. Yeah, there were just a number of elements of that debate I found myself laughing, which is not necessarily a good sign. (laughing) Kathryn and I were watching it and… I can’t even say this. Don’t even try to goad me into saying it. No. Yeah, it’s a shame. It’s a faux pas. I shouldn’t even allude to it. The very beginning, the first question, I said, “What?” The first question was from an audience member. (laughing) I’ll get to the debate here in just a second. I want to take you back to March 29th. This is me your lovable host.

RUSH ARCHIVE: If it succeeds, then I’m just telling you, get ready; every story, every interview with people on the street, I mean Nic Robertson’s gonna go nuts over at CNN. He’s gonna find Mustapha; he’s gonna find Ahmed; he’s gonna find Khalid, and these guys are all gonna talk about how grateful everybody is for Obama and what he has done. I mean that’s the plan; that’s the hope; that’s what’s sketched out on the story boards here for the Obama Doctrine, which is “2012 or Bust.”

RUSH: That was March 29th that I was talking about how the media is gonna go nuts once they kill Khadafy. Can’t wait to give Obama credit for it. Remember, Nic Robertson, the CNN reporter who was at Tahrir Square, which is a circle, was in the middle of the Arab Spring when they were trying to get rid of Mubarak. And Nic Robertson roams into the audience and finds Mustapha, “Let me ask you a quick question, sir, what do you think about President Obama and his efforts to support you and jobs?” And then Mustapha, “Obama, he hasn’t done anything for us. We don’t care about Obama.” And then he goes out and he finds Khalid, “Khalid, what do you think of President Obama?”

And after these two guys that Nic Robertson found totally dissed Obama, “He got nothing to do with this,” Nic Robertson said, “Well, as you can see the people here at Tahrir Square are totally supportive of President Obama and his efforts to bring peace and tranquility and jobs and wealth.” Nic Robertson went over there and did everything he could to give Obama credit for what was happening in Egypt. So that’s why this bite, I was predicting if they ever got Khadafy, it would be the same thing. “Obama did it, Barry did it,” and, lo and behold, here’s a media montage from this morning talking about the death of Moammar Khadafy.

STARR: For the President, this is now a third national security plus, a win, if you will.

PLANTE: It will be considered a victory for President Obama’s policy.

SCARBOROUGH: This is one more victory many would say for Barack Obama.

WRIGHT: This is going to be an enormous success for the Obama administration.

COSTELLO: A big victory for the Obama administration.

RUSH: And then there’s Jamie Rubin who was at the State Department during the Clinton years. He was on American Morning at CNN, and they have a discussion here about the reported capture and death of Khadafy. The co-host Christine Romans said to Jamie Rubin, “So, a really good day for US policy?”

RUBIN: Some in this country didn’t want it to happen. I think President Obama has been vindicated, and the idea that in certain circumstances with the right conditions, with UN blessing, with support from the region, that the use of force can really turn a dictatorship and help contribute to it becoming a government hopefully based on Democratic values. It’s an important day.

RUSH: Oh, yeah. You remember a guy named Saddam Hussein? Of course, we can’t go back and give Bush credit for that. No, no, no, that was unnecessary. Hussein didn’t pose any kind of a threat. There was no need for that, that was Bush trying to avenge something personal between the Saddam Hussein and his dad, weapons of mass destruction. Bush lied, people died, all that, but now we go out and got Khadafy, who reportedly was begging for his life, (impression) “Don’t shoot! Don’t shoot!” and they called Obama and said, “Barry, he’s saying don’t shoot, don’t shoot.” Obama said, “Shoot.” (laughing) We got more. We’ve got ecstasy. We have absolute ecstasy. F. Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, this morning on MSNBC’s Daily Rundown, F. Chuck talking to Andrea Mitchell about the capture and killing of Khadafy.

TODD: Andrea, eight presidents have had to deal with Moammar Khadafy and it looks like that won’t be the case anymore.

RUSH: (panting)

MITCHELL: Richard Nixon was president when Moammar Khadafy took power, and this is an extraordinary achievement. It was very interesting to watch the debate the other night because universally, all of the Republican candidates were saying get rid of foreign aid, some were saying, you know, let’s get out of the United Nations. And Mitt Romney as well. So there is a huge push against foreign aid, and that is exactly what Clinton was delivering when she was in Tripoli was the prospect of significant aid for this interim government. And without it they won’t be able to survive.

RUSH: Yes. So there’s ecstasy, and there was orgasming going on. Remember, Barack Obama himself, after Saddam Hussein was captured, said that removing Saddam from office was just a distraction. Bush is just trying to distract everybody from a bad economy. Remember that? That’s what it was. But now Barry, who is doing so poorly domestically, needing any kind of assistance he can get.

Did you hear about this? Obama was at a firehouse, Fire Station Number 9 in North Chesterfield, Virginia. This is an LA Times story: “Closing out his bus tour on a low-key note, President Obama made a pitch for his jobs package at a firehouse, where a subdued crowd needed a bit of prompting to applaud his proposal to boost the economy. Obama visited Fire Station 9 to draw attention to a major piece of his $447 billion jobs package. He wants to spread $35 billion among states and cities, in part to prevent layoffs of police and firefighters, and would pay for it with a surtax on millionaires.

“The president got a polite reception from the 100 or so people crowded into the station garage. Early in his speech he mentioned his American Jobs Act. One or two people clapped. ‘You can go ahead and clap,’ the president said. ‘Go ahead, nothing wrong with it.'” A hundred firefighters — you know, if Obama weren’t so smug and arrogant, I might feel sorry for him. Look, he’s gone from the Greek columns at the Democrat National Convention acceptance speech, he’s gone from the Greek columns in stadiums to begging for applause from a hundred firemen in a firehouse garage. The guy is in a fire station telling them he’s doing his best to get taxpayer money to bribe them, and one or two of them applaud. He almost should say, “Is this mic on? I mean, I’m telling these guys how I’m gonna go bribe them, I’m gonna get all types of taxpayer money to hire them for another year,” and one or two of ’em applaud. And he has to encourage, “That’s okay, you can go ahead and applaud.”

No enthusiasm, no crowds whatsoever, wherever he’s going. And people that are being honest about this and who are covering it are talking about the small size of the crowds that are showing up to greet Obama. So, on the day that Khadafy is taken out, it’s a chance to shift gears and focus attention on the strength and the power and the competence of Obama. (interruption) It doesn’t matter if Libya descends into a rogue state. What’s Egypt descending into? Doesn’t matter. It’s a democracy movement, Snerdley. You just heard the Drive-Bys say it. You just heard Jamie Rubin say it. It’s an outbreak of democracy. The Arab Spring, it’s an outbreak of democracy. Who needs evidence? It’s a political campaign.

The Drive-Bys are acting as campaign managers and consultants and stenographers. The nature of the evidence here is irrelevant, the purpose, sort of like the seriousness of the charge is what matters, even when there’s no evidence. No, this is an outbreak of democracy. Egypt, that was the people of Egypt reliving the Obama campaign in America of 2008. Getting rid of Hosni Mubarak is the equivalent of getting rid of George W. Bush and bringing freedom back. This is all part of a scripted thing to make a takeover by the Muslim Brotherhood equal to an outbreak of democracy in the Middle East.


RUSH: We have some greatest hits from Calypso Louie. May 28th, going back to the Salem United Methodist Church, an American clergy leadership conference, Minister Louis Farrakhan.

FARRAKHAN: We voted for our brother, Barack. Beautiful human being with a sweet heart. And now he’s an assassin. They’ve turned him into them. You didn’t hear me? They turned him.

RUSH: They’ve turned beautiful Barack into an assassin. They, who is “they”? White Washington. White Washington is “they.” That’s who Calypso Louie is referring to. “They turned our brother Barack, a beautiful human being with a sweet heart, now he’s an assassin. They turned him into them. You didn’t hear me?” The crowd murmurs its support. Now we move to March 2011 this year in Chicago on the radio. The host says, “You told the President, you said be prepared because it will be coming to your door. And your advice to Obama was to ‘remember the words youÂ’re making to other nations.'”

FARRAKHAN: I warned my brother, don’t you let these wicked demons move you in a direction that will absolutely ruin your future with your people in Africa and throughout the world. Why don’t you organize a group of respected Americans and ask for a meeting with Khadafy? You can’t order him to step down and get out. Who the hell do you think you are?

RUSH: All right, so back in March Calypso Louie told a radio show in Chicago, actually speaking to Obama, “You can’t order him to step down and get out. Who the hell do you think you are?” Now, how do you think Farrakhan feels today? Back in March he just told Obama, “You can’t order him to step down and get out. Who the hell do you think you are?” And today Khadafy is dead, and the media is praising Obama. Same day, same radio show, Farrakhan continued.

FARRAKHAN: That you can talk to a man that built a country over 42 years, and ask him to step down and get out. Can anybody ask you? Well, there’s a lot now gonna ask you to step out of the White House, cause they don’t want no black face in the White House. Be careful, Brother, how you handle this situation because it is coming to America. It has already started. Look in Wisconsin.

RUSH: So Calypso Louie not happy today. There can be no doubt about this. Calypso Louie has to be seething. He was challenging, he was warning, he was begging, he was imploring Brother Barack, a beautiful human being with a sweet heart who has now become an assassin, not to do this. “Who the hell do you think you are?” Imagine how Farrakhan feels today? And Reverend Wright. You know, he’s part of the Khadafy bunch as well.
