Bibi Shows the UN a Bomb
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | September 27, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 09/27/2012 2:36:35 PM PDT by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Benjamin Netanyahu is delivering his speech at the United Nations General Assembly. I just tuned into a bit of it here during the break, and it's awesome. It's very, very well done. It's an exceptional speech, all about Iran's nuclear weapons and how they differ from the Soviets, for example, in having nuclear weapons and why.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Benjamin Netanyahu, who may be the closest thing we have to a Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher today, Benjamin Netanyahu is at the United Nations. He's giving a great speech, and he's now using a visual aid. He's got a picture of a bomb, a circular bomb with a fuse coming out of the top, and he's explaining where Iran is. No interpreter needed for this. He is explaining to the dictators at the UN how it all works. It's fabulous. (laughing) It is great. I've never seen this. I've never seen a visual aid at a United Nations General Assembly major address like this.

I tell you what this reminds me of. When I moved to Sacramento in 1984, I flew out there a bunch of times for interviews and just to see if I wanted to live there and liked it there. I noticed when leaving, I was getting on the airplane in Sacramento at the airport, and there were all these signs, things that you can't take with you beyond this point. And there was a picture of a bomb, just like Netanyahu's bomb, it looked just like that. And I stopped dead in my tracks, I looked, I said, "Who in the world, if they had a bomb, would be deterred by the sign that says you can't take that with you?"

Oh, gosh, I can't take the bomb? I have a bomb in my luggage, but, oh, there's a sign that says no bomb. I have to go back to the hotel and drop the bomb off. I cannot take bomb.

I actually started laughing, standing there. And I said, "What liberal put this sign up here?" as though it's actually gonna be a deterrent. He's not using his sign as a deterrent. He's using it as a visual aid.

Here's a tweet from a journalist, Chris Hayes: "Bibi veering into self-parody with a drawing of a bomb with a lit fuse." So the media's making fun of Netanyahu for his visual aid of the bomb, that he's veering into self-parody. And actually, he's just trying to explain to the essence of a bunch of second graders in this room what he's talking about.

Someone needs to Photoshop a birth certificate for this man saying he was born here. Then he can run for President.

Okay, in all honesty, that bomb visual aid is pretty tacky. If Obama used something similar, wouldn’t we be absolutely all over it?

It’s okay though, Bibi is still a badass (and a real leader).

If Susan Rice was there it was completely necessary.

Considering the IQ of the audience he was addressing, I think his visual aid was appropriate.

Remember Ross Perot and his charts and graphs. Even he understood the education level of the majority of people in the USA. It is as bad or worse in the majority of countries represented by the UN.

People will remember that bomb and the red line.

Bibi: I think he is pretty badass, too. And, he is the closest we have come to a statesman in quite a while.

Sad that such cartoon level drawings are needed for an organization that claims to be the best and brightest of our international community of world leaders. The UN is nothing but a bunch of clowns.

Should the bomb drop, where do the prevailing winds take the fallout? There are some countries who are gonna be majorly mad.

He earned it too. Quite an impressive resume too:

I thought the choice of graphic was awful. He’s talking about nuclear weapons and he shows a drawing of an 18th century bomb. Blah. A mushroom cloud would have been more appropriate. This was a lost opportunity...the graphic is the only thing that will be remembered as a representation of that speech by 99.9% of people.
