RUSH: Let's go back to the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites, the archives. Here's Ken Rogulski, our man in Detroit at WJR, our blowtorch affiliate there. In October 2009, people were in line for money from Obama's stimulus, and Ken Rogulski went out and talked to 'em.
ROGULSKI: Why are you here?
WOMAN #1: To get some money.
ROGULSKI: What kind of money?
WOMAN #1: Obama money.
ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?
WOMAN #1: Obama.
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?
WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from, but he givin' it to us, to help us.
WOMAN #2: And we love him.
WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!
WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)
RUSH: It's really a sad, sad day. Thousands of people were lined up for vouchers for something that was not available in any sort of plentiful supply. Most of these people ended up getting nothing, but they thought they were there to get money from Obama. From Obama's stash. See, I'd be embarrassed if I were president and this kind of stuff happened. But the point is: Do you think these people even know that Mitt Romney spoke to a bunch of fundraisers and talked about 47%? Do you think they even know this? And that's being cited as the reason why Romney lost the election and the polls have plunged. It's all over.
So Rogulski kept talking to these people in Detroit hoping to get some money for from Obama's stimulus. It's October 2009.
ROGULSKI: Did you get an application to fill out yet?
WOMAN: I sure did. And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.
ROGULSKI: Will you know today how much money you're getting?
WOMAN: No, I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call.
ROGULSKI: Where's the money coming from?
WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the City of Detroit or the state.
ROGULSKI: Where did they get it from?
WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get the funds?
WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from... Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He's the president.
ROGULSKI: In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.
Obama Voter Says Vote for Obama because he gives a free Phone
RUSH: And, now, ladies and gentlemen, we move to Cleveland, Ohio. Yesterday in Bedford (I think it's near Cleveland) outside a Romney campaign event, an unidentified reporter and a woman have this little exchange about why she's protesting Romney and supporting Obama.
REPORTER: You got an Obama phone?
WOMAN: (screaming) Yes! Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone!
REPORTER: He gave you a phone?
WOMAN: He gonna do more!
REPORTER: How did he give you a phone?
WOMAN: You sign up. If you're... If you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got low income, you disability...
REPORTER: Okay, what's wrong with Romney, again?
WOMAN: Romney, he sucks! Bad!
RUSH: So these are the people that don't like Romney because of what he said about 47%? No, these are the 47%! (laughing) Yeah, I'll play it again. These are the 47%. Notice this guy...? Is it a guy? It's a woman. (It's my hearing. I'm sorry.) She knows. She knows how to get this free Obama phone. She knows everything about it. She may not know who George Washington is or Abraham Lincoln, but she knows how to get an Obama phone, and she knows that Romney sucks, and she ends up at a Romney rally.
How did she get there?
Here it is again...
(replaying of sound bite)
RUSH: You want to hear it one more time? Okay. Here's one more time...
(replaying of sound bite)
RUSH: You know, folks...
(playing of parody song: You Just Need Reeducation)
RUSH: We wonder why we're losing the country, maybe, and why we ask that question. (song continues) The EIB Network. El Rushbo on the radio. (song continues)
(replaying of sound bite)
RUSH: And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen.
Oh, by the way, Obama himself was in Bowling Green, Ohio, yesterday at Bowling Green University for a campaign event. Listen to this from President Bump in the Road.
OBAMA: I don't believe we can get very far, uh, with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives.
FOLLOWERS: (smattering of applause)
OBAMA: And I've gotta tell you, as I travel around Ohio and as I look out on this crowd, I don't see a lot of victims. I see hardworkin' Ohioans. That's what I see.
RUSH: How in the hell are you missing the idiots?
He's traveling around Ohio. How in the world are you missing the idiots? You see, Obama thinks he's got a great campaign issue, folks. He running around and he's saying that 47% of the people are not victims. He's putting words in Romney's mouth. He's misrepresenting what Romney was saying. He's taking out of context. Romney never talked about them being victims.
But, but it's good to know that there are no victims in this country, because that means Obama has reversed course completely. If Obama believes there are no victims, then I assume he'll shut down all the civil rights offices throughout the federal government, starting with the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. If there are no victims, all affirmative action laws will immediately be repealed. Same thing for equity in pay.
If there are no victims, then there no need to redistribute wealth. Right? So that needs to be repealed. If there are no victims, there's no need to confer legal status on 1.2 million illegal immigrants. If there are no victims, then the entire justification for liberalism ceases to exist. This is how far he's willing to go. Nobody else but me is gonna think of this, but he's undercutting his own philosophical beliefs in order to put words in Romney's mouth.
what does an Obama phone even look like?
This is beyond sickening. Buying every dreg, gutter-level vote he can WITH OUR MONEY.
He should be in jail.
“Those that would hand over freedom for a free cell phone, deserve neither.”

/Direct, freakin’ quote.
If there was a free Obama Money giveaway AGAIN, in the next week or two, and the Obama supporters got burned again by there being no money from Obama’s stash, they would be upset in november.
I am just saying IF...
I wants some o’ dat Obama money!
A better ad for Romney is to have obomas illegal alien aunt that says she is here illegally and everything should be free for her.
I’m guessing that votes for sale was not what the Founders had in mind.
I’m a stay-at-home mom of two little ones and the TV is often on during the day. They’ve been running a commercial here in Florida for about a year now, advertising a ‘free’ phone and calling plans. Reading the fine print on the ad, you MUST be on food stamps, welfare, disability or unemployment to receive this phone. It is Sprint-based and comes with hundreds of free minutes and texting!
I’m outraged every time I see this commercial. Glad to know we pay over $100/month for ours when we could get one for free — if my husband would just sit on his butt on the couch all day. Sigh...
Retailers in the cities need to take one for the team and have “free stuff day” on election day. Hard to wait in line at the polls and at the stores at the same time.
The Return of Peggy Joseph!!!
Leftists define liberty and freedom by how much you DON’T have to provide for yourself.
0bama needs the ignorant to reelect him
Yep. The democrats have always been working on that mentality for years. Lower the education levels to stupid, throw in some free stuff and you got a bunch of ignorant freeloaders who will vote for satan himself for a price.
The dems need to throw the leftists out of the party and the Republicans need to be in control until we have cleaned up the mess the Democrats have made over the past 200 years.
Can anyone discern what Rush’s mood was today?
Does he think Romney can pull this out? (Talking his “tone” here...not just his precise words).
