Brokaw & Rose: Who Is Obama?
The Rush Limbaugh Show ^ | 31 Oct 2008 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 10/31/2008 6:09:05 PM PDT by COBOL2Java

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Now, on Charlie Rose Show last night on PBS. Are they doing their pledge drive yet? Is PBS doing their drive? Because, you know, "Without your Pledge, we cannot dust." He had on Tom Brokaw last night, ladies and gentlemen. Here's a montage. Now, this is last night. As you listen to this, keep in mind everything you've heard from Brokaw and others in the Drive-Bys can for the past six months, three months, two months or whatever. This is a montage of Charlie Rose and Brokaw trying to figure out who Obama is.

ROSE: I don't know what Barack Obama's worldview is.

BROKAW: No, I don't, either.

ROSE: I don't know how he really sees where China is.

BROKAW: We don't know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.

ROSE: I don't really know. And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?

BROKAW: Yeah, it's an interesting question.

ROSE: He is principally known through his autobiography and through very aspirational (sic) speeches.

BROKAW: Two of them! I don't know what books he's read.

ROSE: What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?

BROKAW: There's a lot about him we don't know.

RUSH: Incredible! (laughing) Let's send the journalist to find out! Why, have you guys ever thought of that, Tom? Have you ever thought about sending a reporter to find out who the guy is? Charlie! You got plenty of reporters there at PBS, at least on the... Have you ever thought about sending anybody out to find out who he is, besides the two books? (laughing) I cannot believe this. We know who his heroes are -- and, of course, that's the point! We know who his heroes are r we know who his alliances are with. We know who his friends are. We know that he chose them all. But to hear... This is last night. This is, what, four days, five days before the election. These are two of Obama's biggest media supporters! You gotta... I gotta hear this again. This is hilarious if it weren't so damn maddening, because the answer to this is, "Hey, Tom? Talk to the bureau chief in Washington, the new guy who replaced Russert. What you do is, you assign a reporter to go out and find out who Obama is."

ROSE: I don't know what Barack Obama's worldview is.

BROKAW: No, I don't, either.

ROSE: I don't know how he really sees where China is.

BROKAW: We don't know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.

ROSE: I don't really know. And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?

BROKAW: Yeah, it's an interesting question.

ROSE: He is principally known through his autobiography and through very aspirational (sic) speeches.

BROKAW: Two of them! I don't know what books he's read.

ROSE: What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?

BROKAW: There's a lot about him we don't know.

RUSH: Well, we know one of his heroes is a member of the Communist Party, Frank Davis. He mentored him in Hawaii. There's a lot we know, Tom. (laughing) Does this not ice it? Does this not ice...? We know as much as can be known about Obama, far more than he wants us to know, and here are these two pillars of Drive-By journalism. "I don't know. I don't know. It's an interesting question, Charlie. It's an interesting question." (laughing) I just think this is... "That's true." Two pillars of journalism, one has an audience and one doesn't, but it doesn't matter. They're both still pillars. Hey, Tom, Charlie, I think we can help here about his view of China. This was last night on MSNBC, and he was asked this question, Obama was. "Is there a possibility you could see in your first term if elected and we need an economic stimulus, an FDR style public works program?"

OBAMA: I've actually talk about this. I think we have to rebuild our infrastructure. Look at what China's doing right now. They, uh, er, uh -- Their trains are faster than us. Their ports are better than us. They are preparing for a very competitive Twenty-First Century economy, and we're not.

RUSH: Okay, Charlie? Tom? You just heard Obama say after you're wondering where he is on China, he thinks they're better than us! And, by the way, to be grammatical correct it would be "better than we." You don't say "better than us are." You say "better than we are." The trains run on time? All this infrastructure? Look at the infrastructure that cannot handle a .0001 earthquake! Basically a giant taking a couple of steps will crap some buildings over there. But here's Barack Obama singing, once again, the praises of China, a communist country -- and what? Criticizing the United States. It was an interesting point. It was a very interesting point to an interesting question. Tom Brokaw said it was "an interesting question," What is his attitude on China, the people advising him. Here it is. He loves China, he thinks the United States sucks. Barack Obama, last night on PMSNBC.

Who Is Obama?

1. Banning a TV station because of a reporter's questions
2. Kicking reporters off his plane because of their editorial board endorsements
3. Investigating and attacking a private citizen because he asked a question
4. Accusing Americans who don't want to pay higher taxes of 'selfishness'

I think that answers a lot about who is Obama...

this is truely amazing...they are admitting that we don’t know anything about him and that they didn’t do their jobs...told my “kool aid drinking” neighbor about this and he like the other “kool aid” drinkers didn’t want to know about or listed to reconsider his position...he would only reply “two words - george bush!”

end of subject and i think that sums up how many folks are voting...they don’t know and don’t care about bo at this point, but they are mad as hell at george bush and are going to make everyone who is a repubican pay on nov4...too bad for our country...GOD save us!

I thought Brokaw was in the tank for Obama? What is this?

Here's the answer.

Brokaw and Rose are, indeed, entirely "in the tank" for Marxist Obama.

They believe that Marxist Obama has the election won (read "stolen"), so now they worry (rightly) about their cred. And, they offer the above performance to put up an ignorance chit.

It won't work.

Both Brokaw and Rose have verifiably assisted Marxist Obama through their polar selectivity of questions to candidates.

So, when Marxist Obama takes a precipitous post-election Crazy Ivan to the left (that might remind us of Hugo Chavez) they do not want to be blamed for their deceptive "journalism".

Oh, do they ever misunderestimate us!

Mssrs. Brokaw and Rose.

You made the conscious choice to assist Obama by avoiding the examination of his Marxist and America-hating personal history and that of his close associates.

You made the choice to (try to) torpedo Gov. Palin.

You have had every opportunity to conduct your "journalistic" inquiries in a balanced and equally thorough manner; and you opted to assist Marxist Obama at every turn.

Many well-meaning voters trusted you, and had no idea of your deception, but once they are shocked by Obama's Marxist attacks on them and their culture after the election, they will wonder why you were not more forthcoming about the Dem candidate.

YOU are to blame for your own deceptions.

And, thanks to the internet and F.R., you are henceforth and hereafter ON THE (virtual, of course) HOOK.

We will never forget; and we will cheerfully, and perennially, remind all who inquire abut your responsibility for the unprecedented active deception of the electorate .

Hah!

This is why Rush is worth the millions he makes. And then some. He looks at two "top" journalists and "gets" their idiocy.

Yes. They can assign a damn reporter. Not to fawn over the liberal wet dream of a black man who could be President, but a reporter to go out and DO THE JOB REPORTERS ARE SUPPOSE TO DO.

Get the story.

Find out the facts.

Inform the public.

These two top drawer suck-up journalists are beginning to realize that "out there" we're all Joe the Plumber - and we can SEE them for what they are. We see Obama. We understand redistribution. We know our journalists are letting us down. We can SEE them.

These two American Haters know exactly who zero is...another commie thug like both of them are. Both are stupid childish silly little old men thinking he'll become president and change this ugly patriotic America. Boy, when McCain/Palin win by a landslide...both will be crying like typical liberal crybabies on Nov. 5th. Then we can again be blasted by the euroweenies for not electing a commie thug...

We need to find a country who'll accept all of them and ship them out of this country.

This is the height of journalistic irresponsibility.

Millions of Americans could die from a poorly prepared or inexperienced president. And even more, if this is his design.

I’m glad I wasn’t driving during this part of Rush today! Incredible.

If these two Anti-American loozers would report the facts in an open and fair way; if they would investigate like in the good old days and report to the American people, thugs like Øbama would never get beyond the rat infested sewer that is Chicago politics.

Here is the simple fact at hand:

The GOP ticket wants to save babies and kill terrorists
The RAT ticket wants to kill babies and save terrorists
Case Closed


B Hussein Øbama is
The Marxist Messiah

Good stuff...

But it is too little too late...

Granted though, most of this (stuff) only happened late in the campaign, but most of the damning stuff about Obama’s dreams, hopes, desires and friends have been known for years...

Why he got this far is amazing...But then again most of his votes (and support) are coming from a dmeographic that has a history of being intellectually lazy and only look at the surface issues about a candidate or elected official, and not very deep into the nuts and bolts of someone...

“Cult of Personality”

I’m agreeing with Novak, that Obama will win next week, and that we will only stave off a total coup by keeping a senate that can fillibuster the most draconian/socialist movement by congress and Obama at least for the next two years...

At which time the RNC had better get their heads out of their posteriors and have a slate of candidates that can take back some ground from Pelosi and Reid...

They (RNC) need to start now...And get ready for 2010...

I would prefer that 2006 not have a “Part 3” to this process...

BROKAW: There's a lot about him we don't know.

Well, Tom, how about you go talk to your buddies over at the Times in LA and have them release the party tape (yeah, you know the one I'm talking about) and I'll bet you $100 that we'll all learn something brand new about him at the same time!

“I say old bean, who is this “O’Bama” fellow we keep hearing about?”

“Well, I hear he’s running for President of the United States!”

“Really? Do go on.”

“Yes. Not really sure what else there is to tell, though. Not sure what he believes in or wishes to accomplish. Can’t really say what sort of people he admires or what influences him. He did go to Harvard, I hear.”

“Harvard you say? Well, he’s obviously executive material at least.”

“True. Still, rather a blank slate in most other respects.”

“Hmmm... Perhaps some “journalist” or another should look into it one day.”

“Yes, quite. Know any?”

My God. I feel sick.

No...I posted it...(Gasp!)

But, like I always say...I “Hope” to be proven wrong...

Most of us have done what we can, and there may be a little more we can do to stave off the inevitable, possibly...

I’m just getting into a mode of “hunkerin’ down” till 2010, where I “Hope” we have already started to get together a cadre of candidates to close the gap and possibly take back over some aspect of our “checks and balances”...

The missus and I are fine...We are going to be working our poll in our precinct tomorrow...

I marked up our poll books yesterday, and am amazed at how many folks early voted in our precinct...Regardless of the outcome, I am pleased by how many folks participated so far...

Our system works...Some try to cheat, but in the long run it works...

But you already know that...;-)

The reality is that no matter who wins tomorrow, it will not be a mandate...

I "Hope" so too. The more one hears (like on the coal plants statement) the more reassured I am. (yesterday was a great day!)
