RUSH: Here’s Obama at a campaign rally. This illustrates many of the points I was making in the first hour about the libs not knowing what happened to them last night. They do not understand conservatism. They reject it. They don’t take it seriously. It’s a home for kooks and extremists and oddballs and a very, very small number of people are conservative and they’re all hicks and that kind of stuff. And Obama, as such, doesn’t really know how to deal with conservatism when hit with it. They end up believing the caricatures of us that they manufacture.

You know what they think of me. You’ve seen it for 25 years. Racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, lies, purposely misstates the facts, all these things. They really think that. They never listen to this program. Up until my national radio show started, nobody ever thought I hated anybody. After a week on the radio, guess what? I was a hater. Just because I was conservative. That’s the cliche. So they’ve done the same with Romney. They’ve created this caricature, and they’ve put this caricature in ads, and Romney’s a felon and Romney’s a guy who lets a guy’s wife die, and Romney’s a guy that screws the country and has all of his money in the Cayman Islands. He said to a bunch of donors he doesn’t care about half the country. As far as he’s concerned they can die and just wilt away. They believe this.

See, that’s the thing that people don’t understand. They believe these caricatures they create. We understand liberalism. I know it as well as they do. I explain it more honestly than they do before I nuke it each day numerous times on this program. They can’t explain conservatism. They don’t take it seriously, they’ve never studied it. It’s not worth their time. So last night they ran up against, for the most part, 90 minutes of solid conservatism, and they don’t know what hit ’em.

So what’s Obama do? He goes through a campaign rally today and says that wasn’t the real Romney. It’s sort of like they believe the exit polls and not the real votes. In 2004, the exit polls say John Kerry’s gonna be elected. So they’re running around at five o’clock in the afternoon, all the Democrats, thinking Kerry’s the president. And Bob Shrum, his campaign guy, (imitating Shrum) “Mr. President, may I be the first to call you Mr. President,” ha-ha-ha. And Kerry’s getting ready for his acceptance speech later that night. Then the real votes start being counted, and it’s a blowout, and they can’t believe it, and they think there’s fraud. They believe the exit poll. So they’ve created this caricature of Romney, he’s whatever they think he is, the real Romney shows up last night, and guess what Obama says today? No, no, no. That wasn’t the real Romney. Here, listen.

OBAMA: He doesn’t even know that there are such laws that encourage outsourcing. He’s never heard of ’em, never heard of ’em. Never heard of tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. He said that if it’s true, he must need a new accountant. Now, we know for sure it was not the real Mitt Romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. So, you see the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney’s decisions and what he’s been saying for the last year.

RUSH: Is that the best Obama’s got after last night? See, outsourcing is another one of these cliches that they come up with that they automatically attack conservative business — outsource. In the middle of an administration which is destroying American jobs. This is no president any better destroying American jobs than Barack Obama. But all he’s got is the liberal playbook cliche which says, Republicans equal outsourcing jobs, meaning big business hates workers, Big Oil hates workers, Big Pharmaceutical, Big Tobacco, want their customers to die, big business kills customers, Big Energy kills people, big business hates employees, outsources jobs. They believe this! They believe it. So this is the best Obama’s got. That’s the best retort to what happened last night. They live in a different world, and it’s a world, it’s an alternate universe that they manufacture.
