A Viewer Fed Up with Fox News
RUSH: To opine on it is just very, very tough. I'll tell you what, folks. It's one of the reasons why I have not made an effort to get to know personally all these people in Washington or anywhere else that I might end up talking about, 'cause once you get to know them, it does change.
