In the transcript below from Rush...Rush is criticizing the video Obama and Hillary Clinton made.
I dunno...it doesn't sound that bad to me. Obama says there's no excuse for all this violence. Which is true.
But Hillarys' phrasing is interesting:
HILLARY: Let me state very clearly, and I hope it is obvious, that the United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video.
Not only did the US Government not have anything to do with it, but neither did the US people. It was just a handful of people - and they've got a right to free speech.
In addition, I'd like to know where the Pakistani leader is. WHy isn't he in this video telling his people to chill out? That might have a bit more effect than a couple of Americans alone...
"White House compares Middle East upheaval to the Berlin Wall falling." I said, "What in the world, the Berlin Wall falling? This is more like 1979. The Berlin Wall falling meant freedom. We got tyranny spreading across the Middle East. They didn't burn the embassy in Berlin. Now they're burning the embassy in Pakistan.
Speaking of, folks, you gotta hear this. Let me find it. Sound bite 12. I mentioned this to you yesterday on the program, and then last night I finally got the audio. You're not gonna get everything listening to this, but you'll get enough. There's some graphics on the screen, a little translation, but for the most part this a 42-second commercial. It's an Obama regime ad apologizing to the Muslim world in Pakistan for the video. Now, that story's over. Everybody's admitting that Susan Rice was sent out to try to establish a narrative on the Sunday shows that the video was the reason for all of this, and that's imploded. So their narrative has imploded. But they are continuing to apologize. Somebody said, "Well, you know, the embassy in Pakistan is just a bunch of neophytes as the embassy in Cairo." It's not the embassy; it's Obama. This is his show. He's giving the orders. It's his culture that has been established in this administration.
The culture of any organization is set up by the guy on top. That's why the culture here is so clean and pure as the wind-driven snow, optimistic, upbeat, happy, achievement oriented. I set the culture here. Roger Ailes sets the culture at Fox News. That's amazing, all the hundreds of people there, that culture. Obama sets the culture for the regime. So they can try to pass all this off on the employees at various embassies. And I have no doubt that they're little knuckleheads that come out of conflict resolution 101 and all that, but you gotta hear this.
Keep in mind now that they're burning the flag and the embassy in Pakistan's under siege. More than 17 people have died in demonstrations in Pakistan after the government declared today that it would be a public holiday to let people protest. You know what they're doing? There's a public holiday in Pakistan to let people protest under the banner of Love the Prophet Day. And all carrying this notion forward that this video out there has so blasphemed the prophet, that whole countries have to get the day off now to deal with it.
And then in the midst of all this, 17 people have died in demonstrations. It's Love the Prophet Day and 17 people die. This ad is running on Pakistani television. OBAMA: Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. HILLARY: Let me state very clearly, and I hope it is obvious, that the United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message. America's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.
RUSH: That's... Folks, that's... I can't believe this! But it's true. That ad is running all over Pakistani TV. We were, if not the first, among the first to tell you about this yesterday. Now, we didn't have the actual audio of the ad, but we knew about it. Now, the ad obviously isn't working. (stifling laughter) Sorry. I don't want to laugh, but it's so pathetic. This is just embarrassing. This is rank incompetence, and they're dead serious. You have to understand now: Somebody thinks this is a brilliant idea. They actually do!
Stop and think of that.
