RUSH: I’ve got a little revisit here of Obama and, “You didn’t build that. You didn’t make that happen.” ‘Cause we’re not gonna let that go away. And Obama’s now got an ad out. I think all this is really getting under his skin, folks. He’s got an ad out now whining and moaning that people take him out of context. He’s out there saying people that do what he does for a living, you have to expect people to make things up about you, and you have to expect people lie about you, and you have to expect that kind of criticism. That’s part of the doing the job, but this he’s not gonna put up with. This kind of misrepresentation, taking him out of context. So this is getting under his skin. And even if it weren’t, we would keep focus on it because this is who he is.


RUSH: Here’s Obama. This is a new reelect Obama TV ad. It’s “Always.” It has the president directly responding to Romney’s use of Obama’s “you didn’t build that” remarks. I think this might be Obama’s first rebuttal ad, maybe ever. Here’s how it sounds.

OBAMA: Those ads taking my words about small business out of context, they’re flat-out wrong. Of course Americans build their own businesses. Every day hardworking people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs, and make our economy right. And what I said was that we need to stand behind them as America always has by investing in education and training, roads and bridges, research and technology.

RUSH: What a crock.

OBAMA: I’m Barack Obama. And I approved this message because I believe we’re all in this together.

RUSH: Oh, well, bring out the Stradivarius. Bring out the violins. Oh, we’re all in this together. Roads and bridges. You liberals drive me nuts with your cliches. Roads and bridges. Investing in education, as though we don’t. Training? We wouldn’t need training if education were worth a damn. We wouldn’t need work training stations or whatever the hell these things are called. If people were properly educated in school you wouldn’t need to have these stupid federal, whatever they’re called, work centers. Research and technology, you don’t do any of that. Ah, folks, it drives me nuts all these liberal cliches. And then this whining. What’s he whining about? Let’s go back. Friday, February 13th, Roanoke, Virginia.

OBAMA: If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, “Well, it must be ’cause I was just so smart.” There are a lot of smart people out there. “It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.” Let me tell you something. There are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. If you are successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you got a business, that — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so then all the companies could make money off the Internet.

RUSH: (imitating Obama) “Those ads taking my words about small business out of context, they’re flat-out wrong. Of course Americans build their own business.” You didn’t say that. They’re trying to say that he was taken out of context when he said: “Somebody invested in roads and bridges. You got a business, you didn’t build that.” Well, if he really was talking about roads and bridges, he woulda said, “If you got a business, you didn’t build those.” Roads and bridges are plural. “You didn’t build those.” But he didn’t say that. “You didn’t build that,” right after he said, “You got a business? You didn’t build that.” You didn’t build your business. He said exactly what he intended to say. Who built Caterpillar? The guys that made the roads.

Romney had it right. His experience does not comport with the American experience. It just doesn’t, folks. Romney is dead-on right. Whatever Obama’s experience in life is, education, mentoring, whatever, it doesn’t comport with the American experience. Here, my friends, this is who Obama thinks he is.

(playing of Obama spoof)

RUSH: White comedian Paul Shanklin and “I’m the soul of your heart’s perspiration,” portraying vocally there the voice of Barack Hussein Obama, who’s simply saying rich people have got to get back. I’m gonna take from the rich. They stole from you. They don’t serve what they’ve got. They didn’t do anything on their own. We did it for ’em. You did it for ’em and you didn’t get paid. You got stolen from and you got used. It has nothing to do with roads and bridges or infrastructure.

By the way, if we’ve had more government than ever under Obama, how come the economy didn’t take off? How many personalities does this guy have? So what he said last week is different than what he says now. He was right the first time and he’s right now. He’s never wrong. We’re dealing with Sybil here.
