Rush is going “all in.” Today on his show, Rush proposed to openly debate President Obama.
The Anchoress tuned in, and called it “riveting.” She:
And he [Rush] seems utterly, supremely confident. He suggests that if President Obama can debate “without notes or teleprompter” and defeat Limbaugh in the eyes of the audience, (I’m paraphrasing) “you will own America. You will have no opposition standing. Santelli is being silenced, Cramer will be gone soon, though not without a fight. You have the press, you have Hollywood. The only thing standing between you and complete ownership of the United States is me and my little radio show.”
Audacious? It’s audacious as hell. It’s Rush going “all in,” and calling a bluff. He frankly knows he has nothing to lose because Limbaugh understands what so few in America seem to: there has been a coup – a bloodless, painless coup. The new presidency is what, 44 days old, and America may never be the same.
Awesome, Rush. Here’s the entire transcript of the monologue, and an excerpt:
“You’re a smart guy, Mr. President. You’ve debated the best. You are one of the most gifted public speakers of our age. I would think you would jump at this opportunity. I’m offering the biggest audience in radio to a Democrat who happens to be President of the United States for fairness and balance — all without needing the Fairness Doctrine or government mandates.”
There’s a nice little roundup of the Rush/Obama contretemps under that post, as well. Fascinating reading. Just might grab a cup of coffee and peruse it a bit, myself.
