RUSH: Romney has put together an ad. It’s an Internet ad. It runs 1:40. We’ve edited some of the music here, so the total run time here is about a minute and a half. We’ve shaved 12 second out of this. But it’s a great ad. It cuts to the heart of what the country’s all about, what it’s always been about. It uses a real person to tell Obama what we’ve been feeling for 3-1/2 years. The guy’s name is Jack Gilchrist. He is the owner of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company in Hudson, New Hampshire.

OBAMA: Look, i-i-if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.

FOLLOWERS: That’s right!

OBAMA: You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, “Well, it must be because I was just so smart!”

FOLLOWERS: (laughing)

OBAMA: There are a lot of smart people out there. “It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.” Let me tell you something. … If you’ve got a business, you — you didn’t build that!

FOLLOWERS: That’s right!

OBAMA: Somebody else made that happen.

GILCHRIST: My father’s hands didn’t build this company? My hands didn’t build this company? My son’s hands are not building this company? Did somebody else take out the loan on my father’s house to finance the equipment? Did somebody else make payroll every week and figure out where it’s coming from? … President Obama, you’re killing us out here. Through hard work and a little bit of luck, we built this business. Why are you demonizing us for it? … We are the solution, not the problem. It’s time we had somebody who believes in us, someone who believes that achievement should be rewarded, not punished. We need somebody who believes in America.

ROMNEY: The idea to say that Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple, that Henry Ford didn’t build Ford Motors … To say something like that is not just foolishness, it’s insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in America —

AUDIENCE: (wild cheering)

ROMNEY: — and it’s wrong!

AUDIENCE: (wild cheering)

ROMNEY: President Obama attacks success and, therefore, under President Obama, we have less success — and I will change that.

AUDIENCE: (cheers and applause)

RUSH: Right on. Right on: Mitt Romney. That’s the new ad. It’s an Internet ad, and it’s pretty effective. And you can find stories from people saying this. I’m gonna read one to you from the Chicago Tribune today. And there’s six of ’em in the New York Post. You know, this is a major, major gaffe. If he didn’t mean this, this is a major gaffe. This has been allowed to fester and settle in for five days. If you didn’t mean this, you go out there and you take this back. You try to make people understand that you didn’t really mean it. They’re letting it sit there and letting it settle in.

They want people thinking that’s how he’s running his campaign.

He wants to be elected by people who believe this, folks.

I’m telling you.
