Limbaugh: ‘This Is Not the McCain Campaign’
May 31, 2012 - 12:09 pm
RUSH LIMBAUGH: …understand all that, but I’m telling you this is not the McCain campaign. McCain had the left demanded that he distance himself from Trump, not only would have distanced himself he would have gone public and kicked Trump out of his campaign. And Romney did not do that. I gotta take a break. Romney did something else. There’s a Tweet here. Mitt Romney. Romney supporters drown out Axelrod press conference in Boston shouting “Five more months, five more months!” Axelrod showing up everywhere and he was in Boston and Romney voters showed up and shouted him down, “Five more months, five more months!” until we’re finished with you. So Axelrod shows up in Boston and he’s up there for Elizabeth Warren. By the way, is that not the strangest, this is descending, deteriorating into the weirdest. She says she’s the first. See if I understand this. Elizabeth Warren says she was the first Indian law professor to breastfeed at school. Or something like that. Maybe she didn’t say first Cherokee, but first. Why is this woman still a viable candidate? Why is this woman still polling with one person willing to vote for her. This woman’s literally deranged. Just by virtue of the things she is saying. Anyway, Axelrod shows up in Boston for her, big press conference always for Obama. The protestors are out there shouting “Five more months, five more months!” They also were shouting at Axelrod, “Where are the jobs? Where are the jobs?” And Axelrod yelled back at them, “You can’t handle the truth!” Imagine somebody from the Obama regime telling people they can’t handle the truth. My friends, it’s really bad out there for the regime. It really is. Axelrod’s in Boston. We’ve got some audio of this. Axelrod, who’s everywhere. Do you realize? Maybe you don’t. The New York Times has this big story on the bravery and the involvement and the hands-on Barak Obama when it comes to killing terrorists. The “kill list” as it’s called. The names of the bad guys that our drones in the sky are supposed to wipe out. And the story is that Obama is in there personally signing off on the names of the terrorists to be wiped out by the drones. He’s competent. He’s involved. He cares. He’s smart. He’s tough. He doesn’t take any fluff from anybody. Barack Obama. He’s the guy. It really is a pathetic story. If you have to tell people that the President of the United States is involved in something like the War on Terror, then there must be some question about it otherwise why do the story? Wouldn’t most people assume the President is involved in something like this? Maybe not because the New York Times has a big long story. Even Axelrod is in the room! Axelrod is helping Obama pick the names. He’s everywhere. And so is Fluff, the campaign guy. And a lot of people are wondering, “Is Obama really doing anything? Or is it these other two guys making all of the decisions and writing the stuff for him to say on the prompter?” At any rate, here’s Axelrod. He was in Boston this morning. And he’s…Boston where this happened. Listen.
[AXELROD] “Romney economics didn’t work then and they won’t work now. And with that…if there are members of the news media who want to address questions to us who want to contend it, we’re happy to entertain them.”
[CROWD] “Where are the jobs? Where are the jobs?”
[AXELROD] “You can’t handle the truth my friends, that ‘s the problem. You quiet down.”
LIMBAUGH: That’s the way to run the campaign! So you got in Boston anti-Obama, anti-Axelrod protestors show up, “Where are the jobs? Where are the jobs? Five more months! Where are the jobs?” Axelrod, “You can’t handle the truth, my friends that the problem you can’t handle the truth. You quiet down!” Exactly as a statist. Exactly as somebody who works for a dictator would look at the crowd. “You shut up! You can’t handle the truth.” It’s the little things. Here’s Obama’s chief advisor. These are voters, these are American citizens! They are attacked and insulted by the President’s guy. “You can’t handle the truth, that’s the problem. You can’t handle truth, quiet down!” Just wanted you to hear it for yourself.
