Obama Makes It All About Him
Rush ^ | July 23, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 07/23/2012 3:51:02 PM PDT by Kaslin


RUSH: We'll start in Chatham, New Jersey, with Greg. And I'm really glad you waited, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.

CALLER: Hey, it's my honor to wait for you any time, Rush.

RUSH: Thank you very much, sir. I understand that totally.

CALLER: Rush, I want to preface my comments that are on the board there with a quick story. Thank you for coming to the defense of the Constitution and the NRA. I myself this weekend got into a heated Facebook discussion with two of my friends that I've known since high school. They immediately started to trash the NRA and blame the Constitution for the ills of America. I came to the defense of both of those, and they both defriended me, and one of them is actually a graduate of Princeton University, so --

RUSH: Well, look, you're dealing with people who are pseudo-smart. They think they're smarter than you, smarter than everybody else. They actually defriended you over this? See, Snerdley's in there, I must tell you, Snerdley's a little nervous today 'cause he thinks that I'm blaming movies for this Aurora thing. And I'm not. I got people out there attacking my Constitution and blaming it. And I'm not gonna sit here on my sizeable tush and just sit here and take it.

CALLER: I'm on your side, Rush.

RUSH: I'm gonna push back. The Constitution did not make this thing happen out there. Some demented wacko kid did for reasons that we may never fully understand.

CALLER: Exactly, Rush. And we're not gonna stand for anybody putting the blame on the Constitution or the NRA. Now I want to get to my main comment before Snerdley gets more nervous. It's interesting that there's something inherently wrong with liberals, including Obama, where they have to emotionally inject themselves into tragedies like this. And I'm referring to Obama's comments which I heard him make twice since Friday about his daughters, Sasha and Malia, going to the movies when everyone knows that if Sasha and Malia went to the movies, they would be protected by the Secret Service. And yet he has to inject himself --

RUSH: Yeah, you know, I wasn't sure about this. Well, the source for me on this is solid. This guy sends me a note, and, remember, now, I'm out playing golf on Friday, interment rain and so forth, and you're not allowed cell phones out there, so I'm coming late to all this. At the end of the day on Friday I'm checking voluminous amounts e-mail and I get a note from a guy who said, "You wouldn't believe, why does Obama do this? He had to say, 'My daughters go to the movies, what if they had been in that theater?'" And I looked at that, did he really say that? If I had a son, he would look just like Trayvon Martin. My two daughters go to the movies. What if they had been there, as though, what are we to conclude? That his two daughters are more important than people that were in that theater? (interruption) What, that's not what he meant? What the hell did he mean? Wait a second. No, no, no.

Look, I'm mayor of Realville. I deal in the literal. First off, did he say, "My two daughters go to the movies, what if they had been in that theater that night?" Did he say, "I wonder if"? Even if he said, "I wonder if my two daughters had been," trying to relate to average, ordinary peons just as they might be asking, "Gee, what if my daughters had been there?" Well, without those daughters, would he have a different reaction? What's the deal here? If his daughters weren't there, would he have a different reaction? If Trayvon Martin hadn't been black, would he have had a different reaction to a son that he didn't have looking like Trayvon Martin? When I read that, when I read that note, I thought, well, this is very typical, this is an egomaniac who really thinks that the people of this country think he is more important than any other human being alive in this country.

And then I said, can he only relate to this through his own flesh and blood? Can he not relate to this with simply the loss that people in that theater have experienced? Folks, I don't know about you. When I first heard about this, and I don't have kids, so I didn't think, "Well, what if my kids had been there?" But I also didn't think, "Gee, what if my brother had been there? What if my nieces had been?" I've got nieces and nephews, I did not think, "Gee, what if they'd been in there?" It wasn't about me, I guess is my point. Why does everything have to be about this guy, and why does he have to turn everything of noteworthy consequence in this country around so that it's about him? "My daughters go to the movies. What if Malia and Sasha had been at the theater as so many of our kids do each day? Michelle and I will be fortunate to hug our kids." I don't know. I just don't know how many people made this about them. That's my only point. Anyway, Greg, I'm glad you called.

I've said so before, but I think the day will come that we all learn that Obama's "daughters" were only props all along.

Obama is a textbook example of narcissism. The world revolves around him. Always has. Obama has received a free ride through life and got by on BS so why wouldn't he really believe he's more important than anyone else on the planet? The sad thing is, he very likely believed this long before he was president.

His upcoming election loss may send him over the edge because he won't be able to process not winning when his BS and his race have always gotten him what he thought he deserved. The period between November 7th and January 20, 2013 will be a very dangerous time for America.

Practically every time I hear the president address the nation, the first words he utters are “I” or “We.”

Dear Rush,
Arizona, a fairly recent addition the US, has a Sheriff in one of their counties who has proven beyond the shadow of doubt that the ostensible Birth Certificate Copy posted on the WH Website is not what the State of Hawaii released to Obama's lawyers. It is therefore, a fraudulent document. He has shown how it was made.

He held the second of rather lengthy news conferences during which he meticulously presented his evidence in regard to this, the SS# case, and the Draft Card Case.

Is this of interest to you? Why not research and mention it on the show? Perhaps you can refer to it as a news item, and as a neutral reporter, refrain from opining on the matter? I am sure that many of your listeners would love to hear you at least acknowledge the existence of this issue.

Amazing, isn't it? The Gettysburg Address, of over 270 words didn't have a single "I" or "ME" in it, but this illegal alien buffoon sprinkles I and Me all over the place.

He won't do it . . . he and all the rest of our so-called conservative voices are big stinking cowards . . . if they'd have done this 4 years ago, the illegal alien would be in prison now instead of our White House.

Rush is a hypocrite and a coward . . . to used to the big bucks he's pulling in . . . and that goes for the rest of the complete slate of "conservative" talking heads. Shame on all of them!
