CLINTON: In the first debate, the triumph of the moderate Mitt Romney. You remember what he did? He ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial ways. He said, “Oh, you’re gonna turn back the seas.” In my part of America, we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday.
RUSH: Oh, I’m not believing that. Did you hear what he just said? (imitating Clinton) “In my part of America, we’d-a like it if somebody coulda turned back those seas yesterday.” Mr. President, there’s only been one man that coulda done that, and he ain’t alive, at least not on earth today. It ain’t you and it ain’t Barack. What is this? So Clinton defending Obama’s promise to lower the sea level, (imitating Clinton) “At least he woulda tried. That’s right, Limbaugh, if he coulda, he woulda. That’s the difference. Romney would not have. If Romney saw a rise in sea level and he coulda stopped, he’d let the sea level go ahead and rise and flood everybody out. Romney hates people. You know it and I know it. Obama, he loves everybody. He wouldn’t want the sea level to rise.” And here’s Andrew Cuomo. By the way, speaking of the governor of New York, he held a press conference to talk about Hurricane Sandy yesterday.
CUOMO: There has been a series of extreme weather incidents. Anyone — that’s not a political statement. That is a factual statement. Anyone who says there’s not a dramatic change in weather patterns I think is denying reality.
RUSH: Well, I’ll say it because you can find similar storms to this back in 1962, governor, and you were alive then. Well, you’d have been close to being alive. Nor’easters happen. There were two or three of them when I lived in New York. That’s why they’re called nor’easters.
Anyway, here you have this devastating storm. Who’s trying to politicize it? Who’s trying to turn this into his global warming event? What the hell is this? I told you yesterday: Global warming is political. You have the governor of New York, in the midst of all this… Do you think people I talked about earlier standing in line for five gallons of gas care? What does it matter to them? Global warming!
