Greenberg Warns: The Big Lie Isn't Working

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Stan Greenberg, pollster extraordinaire. He's got this polling company with Carville. Stan Greenberg is married to Rosa DeLauro, a congresswoman from Connecticut. Enough said. National Journal: "Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg is out with a must-read polling memo this morning, which offers some eye-opening advice to President Obama and his re-election team. After testing several of the president's economic messages, he finds the argument that the economy is back on the right track polls miserably -- and 'produces disastrous results.'" I'll read that to you again, folks.

Look at me when I say this to you. Greenberg, Democrat pollster from the Clinton era along with Carville and The Forehead. "After testing several of the president's economic messages, he finds the argument that the economy is back on the right track polls miserably -- and 'produces disastrous results.'" Quote... This is from the memo. I have printed it out from Greenberg. "It is weaker than even the weakest Republican message and is 10 points weaker in intensity than either Republican message. A third said this message made them less likely to support Barack Obama," meaning the economy-is-back message.

"Alarmingly, this message barely receives majority support among self-identified Democrats -- and even less support among all other groups." Let me translate for you: Obama's running around on this virtual economy. "It's back! We're roaring back! Unemployment's down! Jobs are being created! We have algae and pond scum out there that are gonna bring gasoline prices down!" It ain't working. You're probably saying, "Well, why? Why?" I'll tell you why. Because Greenberg also discovers why it isn't working. The voters don't believe him. It's even in the headline: "Dem Pollster: Voters Don't Think America's Back "

Greenberg has sent out in memo as a warning to Obama and the White House: Do not sit there and think that you've got the magic of 2008 when you tell everybody pond scum is gonna bring gasoline prices down to $2.50. Don't think that lying to them about how good employment is and all that will work, 'cause people don't believe it. And you know why they don't believe it? Because it isn't happening! The gas price is going up! It's getting harder and harder to get a job. That's nothing evidentiary to support a roaring-back economy. And while this lie is going on, here you've got Moochelle on the slopes in Aspen.

The next night, she has a big blues bash with The Wrinkled One, Mick Jagger. He needs to iron his face, like Ann what's-her-face. Ma Richards. I always thought, "Just iron your face." Mick Jagger, the same thing. The Obamas had B.B. King at dinner. Did you know this? I love B.B. King. One of my all-time favorite tunes, my all-time top-ten favorite, he sang it. B.B. King is in a wheelchair. He's diabetic. He's 80-some-odd years old, Snerdley, and he can still belt it out! And you know he sang The Thrill is Gone to Obama and Moochelle! He actually sang it. That was part of his repertoire: The Thrill is Gone. I know we got it in our Prophet System. You don’t have to find it right now, Mike, but get it up. We'll have it ready here and the song up in mere moments.

Gosh, it's a great song. Back from early seventies. I remember playing that song my very first-ever radio job, and I remember it was popular in February or March. I remember songs seasonally, and that's when it was huge. Wintertime, very end stage of winter. So Greenberg is warning Obama: Hey, you need to find another big lie. So two bits of information: Independent Democrat women are not bothered by Santorum; Republican women are not bothered by Santorum. The American people are not buying Obama's big lie on the economy coming back. They're not buying the notion that pond scum will bring down the price of gasoline to $2.50. Gallup tells us: His approval numbers last week or maybe early this week fell five points. He's like 42, 43% in Gallup. Chin up, folks. Chin up.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: (music) There you go, folks. B.B. King. Think it's 1970, 1971. The title of the tune is The Thrill is Gone, and he performed it live in front of Obama and Moochelle this week. (song continues) Can you imagine Obama sitting there listening to this and probably not getting it? Ha-ha-ha-ha.

B.B. KING: You know you done me wrong, baby, and you'll be sorry someday.

RUSH: Yeah, that's what we all hope. (song continues) B.B. King and The Thrill is Gone.

The thrill is gone
The thrill is gone away
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away
You know you done me wrong baby
And you’ll be sorry someday

The thrill is gone
It’s gone away from me
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away from me
Although I’ll still live on
But so lonely I’ll be

The thrill is gone
It’s gone away for good
Oh, the thrill is gone baby
Baby its gone away for good
Someday I know I’ll be over it all baby
Just like I know a man should

You know I’m free, free now baby
I’m free from your spell
I’m free, free now
I’m free from your spell
And now that it’s over
All I can do is wish you well


Nice lyrics to describe the thrill up the leg that Chrissy Matthews used to get, the one felt by so many liberals consumed with guilt over what people who looked similar to them did to people who looked similar to Barack. After three years, they have finally discovered that despite the symbolism of electing our first black to the White House, there was no substance in their dream candidate. They see that it’s time to let an adult take over and fix the mess that Obama can only look at and shriek “Bush’s Fault!”

Good news, but some apparently prefer to rend their garments & gnash their teeth over Rick Santorum’s religiosity.

It's quite possible that Ubama is so arrogant and tone deaf that he will run with this Pollyanna theme.

The unemployed are moving in droves to Social Security Disability - and we all know it. Dems can’t fool the people ;who live where the rubber meets the road - and now a days — that’s most of us.

Or...

The thrill is gone
The thrill is gone away
The thrill is gone Obammy
The thrill is gone away
You know you done me wrong Obammy
And you’ll be sorry someday.

You know I’m free, free now Obammy
I’m free from your spell
I’m free, free now
I’m free from your spell
And now that it’s over
All I can do is say 'Go to Hell'.

No wonder Hank Greenberg is “polling” somewhere else. And those glasses, what a fashion statement! Looks like she stole the cast iron legs of my grandmother’s sewing machine.

No, folks the Obama big lie is not working. If we stick together and turn out in massive numbers on election day, early voting and absentee ballots, we will send Obama and his entire ilk of Democrat enablers flushing down the toilet of political defeat. I actually believe, the Republican will win by default, because the mood and votes of the people will be simply ABO (Anybody But Obama).

Some sage advice for the Democrat Party. Dump Obama now by forcing him to resign or....impeach him. If not, many of you Democrats will go into political destruction with him!!! I would venture to advise American Blacks, to broom Obama, but.....they would not listen, and would just scorn me and my advice. I feel sorry for them, more importantly, their future and the future of their children. Sad!!!

“The unemployed are moving in droves to Social Security Disability”

It’s unbelievably blatant out here in FL. A guy who does some lawns in the neighborhood told me he just got $1,100 a month and $16k in retroactive benefits. All that for a bum leg good enough to mow lawns on.

There was an article posted here a few days ago about it. Liberals are moving long term unemployed to Social Security Disability and getting them to ‘go mental’ to get benefits. Harder to disprove than something physical. Guess the dems think we won't notice that no one is working anymore...

The fact that your yard guy is doing lawns is amazing. Most are sitting home watching TV ... Oh, and these folks are bankrupting the system for people who really are disabled... it's a nightmare. One more liberal horror.

I'm sorry. Neither God nor Charles Darwin ever meant for a woman to be that ugly. She must be a liberal--it's the only explanation.

Today the Usurper tried to get a chuckle from some college joes, by saying the Republican energy plan is simple, in three steps--drill, drill some more, and then drill some more. I don't think the college students got what he thought was meant to be a joke!

This man is stupid, on top of being malignant. Every once in awhile the esssential idiot shines through.

I'm over being 'fair'. Flush twice, and don't leave any floaters in the bowl. The lackeys are part of the problem, too.

I only give my sage advice to the “Dummy” Democrats, because, just like they did not see the 2010 beating they took coming, they are living in LaLa land over the “hated” Barack Hussein “Muslim Brotherhood, Hate America” Obama. The fools have nary a clue as to what is brewing throughout most of America!!! ABO, anybody but Obama!!!

Obama’s ego would not be able to tolerate admitting to Americans his brilliance has not fixed the economy. Maybe he will try to blame and the Tea Party for his failed economy. Mittens and the Rinos would agree with him.
