Obama Admits He Can't Fix What Bush Broke, So Why Reelect Him?
June 14, 2012
RUSH: Man, this guy, Bush, wow. What a tough son of a gun. Look at what this guy Rush has done. Here's Phil in Rockville, Maryland. Welcome to the EIB Network, Phil. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Pleasure to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: It just came to my mind that Mr. Bush has got to be an absolutely incredible individual if, three years after Mr. Obama was immaculated, he still has not been able to undo all the good works that Mr. Bush did.
RUSH: It is amazing, isn't it? After three-and-a-half years, everything that's happened the last three-and-a-half years, if it's all been Bush's fault, don't we have evidence enough now to know that Obama can't deal with it. Obama doesn't know what to do with it. We need to elect somebody who can stand up to Bush.
RUSH: This guy can't even rescind tax cuts. This guy can't fix anything that Bush did. If we reelect Obama, won't it just be four more years of disaster caused by Bush? Obama's admitting he can't fix what Bush did. Why reelect him? If Bush screwed it up so bad we need somebody in there that can fix it. Obama's been at it three-and-a-half years, he is admitting every day, and he's gonna do it again today, that he can't fix it. That's what he's saying.
RUSH: And you're very wise to catch that, Phil. Thanks very much. It's exactly what he's saying. He's gonna blame Bush, and when he doesn't blame Bush, he's gonna blame Europe. Now, common sense tells me, after three-and-a-half years of trying to fix what Bush broke, obviously we've got somebody who can't do it. What is it that argues for four more years of this guy? 'Cause if we reelect Obama, I'll tell you what's gonna happen. If we reelect Obama, folks, it's gonna get worse. We really are just seeing the tip of the iceberg, and I'm not being cliche about that. Wait 'til Obamacare fully implements, if it does, and the Bush tax cuts go away, and other tax increases, and the 16,000 new IRS agents or whatever the number is. The continued assault on fossil fuels. The investment in all the losing green energy products out there. And, as Obama promised Medvedev, "Hey, once I get reelected, I got lot more flexibility."
Folks, it's gonna get worse. And Obama is admitting he can't fix what Bush broke. Why reelect him? It's just gonna be four more years of disaster caused by Bush, administered by Obama, who openly admits he can't fix it. 'Cause that's what he's doing. And he's gonna do it in his speech today in a little less than an hour. He'll blame Bush and then he'll blame Europe when he's not blaming Bush. And essentially he's saying that he can't fix this. He's gonna talk about all the efforts he's made, all the programs, all the policies. It just isn't working. It's so bad. That's the thing to keep in mind. That's the thing to ram down the media's throat.
I think this is one of the reasons why they're very disturbed at multiple levels of the Democrat machine, including the media. They're very concerned about this whining and blaming Bush, because at some point you're admitting you're incompetent. If you whine and complain, "This guy screwed it up so bad, not even I can fix it," it's unfixable, is the logical conclusion of this. The worst thing that can be blamed on Bush is Obama's election. That's, to me, what Bush is primarily responsible for.
