Barrack Hussein Odumbo

RUSH: Here We Go With Barack Obama

As you know, he was up in New Hampshire -- do you know, by the way, TV ads for Barack Obama are going to start airing this weekend? Presidential ads for Barack Obama in New Hampshire start airing this weekend. Hillary, I think, is starting to get panicked because she's called up all of Bubba's old buddies, Carville and Begala and Joe Lockhart, she had them over to dinner to discuss what to do about this. Her team wasn't there. They're all one team, of course, but publicly Carville and Begala have said, (paraphrasing) "Well, we'll help, but we're not officially on the team." That allows them to have more movement and latitude under the radar.

Anyway, Obama up in New Hampshire being treated like a god making a speech. Now, apparently before he made the speech, Maureen Dowd had written something about his big ears. Obama, after the speech, made a beeline for Maureen Dowd who was in the audience to tell her that he didn't appreciate her writing about his big ears. Now, there's a lot of noise here and it's very muddy. I'll translate it for you, but here's how it sounded.

OBAMA: Talk about my ears. So I just want to put you on notice, I'm very sensitive about -- what I told them was I was teased relentlessly when I was a kid about my big ears.

DOWD: We're just trying to toughen you up.

RUSH: "We're just trying to toughen you up." Here is what Barack Obama said. "Talk about my ears. So I just want to put you on notice, I'm very sensitive about -- what I told them was I was teased relentlessly when I was a kid about my big ears." Now, there are many aspects of this, folks, that we need to delve into and explore. For one thing, I mean you know me, if the guy's sensitive about his big ears, we need to give him a new name, like Dumbo. But that doesn't quite get it. How about Barack Obama Hussein Odumbo.

Well, if he's sensitive -- stop to think about this. This is a man being lauded as the savior of the country, a presidential candidate ready to be anointed, and he can't handle being teased about his big ears? He goes out to Maureen Dowd and says, I am putting you on notice? Is that a threat? I want to put you on notice? Can you imagine, like I said yesterday, let's say something about me -- I'm very sensitive about whatever it is, X, and the papers write about it and make fun of it. Can you imagine if I sought out Maureen Dowd or anybody and said, "You know, I'm going to put you on notice. I've been teased about that ever since I was a kid, and I don't like it."

That would be the whole column the next day about how thin-skinned I am, how I can't take it, this and that, and I am a complainer and a whiner and I was trying to influence objective journalists and so forth. But instead, Mo Do says, "We're just trying to toughen you up." But this is revealing at a lot of levels. It is an overt threat to go out and say, "I'm putting you on notice." I wonder what would happen if McCain did that. McCain, "You don't say that about me! I'm putting you on notice, you hear, sister, you hear?"

Can you imagine what the reaction would be if any Republican went up or any conservative went up to a member of the media and said, "I'm putting you on notice right now." How bullied can the Drive-By Media be by this candidates? Of course, Hillary has her testicle lockbox, and it works. She gets kid-glove treatment, softball questions wherever she goes. We've already attributed this to the testicle lockbox that she has. But here's the next thing, and this is something that everybody seems to be deaf about. He seems fragile.

This guy actually seems fragile. He is expecting not to be teased about -- what are the editorial cartoonists going to do with this now? (interruption) Oh some of them will, Mr. Snerdley, some of them will. You know, you were wrong yesterday, and you're going to be wrong today. I bet you yesterday that this Tehran "Holocaust didn't happen" convention would blossom and leave Iran -- and it has -- people seriously debating this now in little oddball corners of the world. I've already seen editorial cartoons, maybe on conservative websites that are parodying -- that's what editorial cartoonists do, they exaggerate the slightest physical characteristic. But, at any rate, how fragile can he be?

He has been given uncritical -- not only uncritical, but fawning positive press coverage for a couple of years now, then one liberal columnist quips about his ears, his ears, and he's fretting about it, and he can't wait to go put her on notice and tell her he doesn't like it because he's been made fun of about it ever since he was a kid. If he's so sensitive about his ears, imagine how his tent will fold when he gets deep into a campaign. Wait 'til Hillary pulls out the testicle lockbox for him in the middle of a campaign, wait 'til Hillary Clinton really gets down and dirty and the guns start blazing, what's this guy going to do? We may have discovered an Achilles' heel. He's not tough enough for this.

Well, Rush oughta know--they've lambasted him about his addiction, his weight, his lack of hair, his divorce--you name it!

I think the fact that conservatives are kicking up such a fuss over this incident is indicative of the fact that they're not actually able to campaign against the political ideals or policies of their opponents and, as such, feel the need to compulsively dig dirt up on them instead.

Yeah, probably how the Democrats talked ENDLESSLY about his weight, his addiction, the 'free ride' he got from the legal system, and every spot on his tie!

Name me ONE of Obama's 'policies'--besides folks just holding hands?

You want to talk about "complusivity"? Go to DU and see how the Democrats remark on EVERY little bitty slip of tongue the President makes. They call him Chimpy--they even caption his pic as nastily as possible1 To think the GOPers have the corner on this nonsense leaves you deluded.

Well, well, well, hello Mr. Unknown Country. You're not too 'decimating'...

Also, too, Mr. Decimation, the article is not about Obama's ears--it's about his sensitivity to a schoolyard remark and whether or not this unfits him for president.

I think you need to 'nuance' the thing a little more carefully.

Yes, Mr. D's attempt to distract away from the real issue and try and make us seem like real meanies is a typical Democrat tactic.

I, too, had hoped Obama had handled it with a little more maturity and poise.

I notice a lot of people on the right, talking about his Name (Like he had any control over that), and now him being upset about the ear comment (stupid), but why not talk about his positions, to me that is more important than his name or his looks.

Robert Bayn, his votes are almost always to the left of Hillary...that's all most on the Right need to know.

'decimationmachine' if the Left HAS any political ideas or policies...other than "leave Iraq...higher taxes...promote pandering and political correctness, multiculturalism and a weaker military. Oh, sorry...I forgot, those guys the left spit on after Vietnam are now heroes for spouting leftist THERE's a "policy".

By the way, "Kicking up a fuss"? It'll be you guys slamming McCain for being too hotblooded to lead...if this guy can't handle a silly remark about ears, then we have to know that. It shows a lot.

Hey, guys, sorry, I wasn't trying to cause such an uproar, I was just commenting on the fact that small political point-winning on matters like this seems a bit trivial. Political opponents should argue against each others actual thoughts on the way a country should be run, they're the ideas that actually affect voters.

Decimation- That's the point, WHAT POLICIES? I haven't really heard anything except "cut and run", "why can't we just get along", "conservatives are mean", blah, blah, blah.
Not a single, policy, just feel good, warm and fuzzy. What about getting the dollar back on track, like go back to the gold standard, and throw out that private company, the Federal Reserve! Something solid. It's smoke and mirrors, it's all the other sides fault, and we are better people than them! That's not policy, that's early adolescent angst! Useless for leading a country!

Yep--Decimation, we're always in an uproar...did you come to the Internet and expect no uproar? LOL! Silly boy! (I shoulda named my blog The Uproar Machine!)

TMW is RIGHT. We hear no firm policies of Obama's. We DO see his vote record--which is just about a hair away from being The Communist Manifesto...

It's a good thing Ole Mo didn't lay a big wet one on him...inflating his lips to 45psi and watching him float away.

decimationmachine....your comment "conservatives ARE NOT ACTUALLY ABLE TO CAMPAIGN AGAINST IDEAS OF OPPONENTS" was just too strange and humorous to let it go like you suggest in your second if the Left has any ideas but the ones I enumerated in my post. By the way, you think THIS was 'digging dirt'? You think the mainstream media's not digging more dirt on Republicans than Dems? HOw's about if Sandy Berger'd been a Republican? Or Wiliam Jeffers? or Mollohan (compare his nonnational coverage to the Duke Cunningham scandal..same crime, just biased media). I could go on and ON and on.

When that's fixed, we'll be America again. I look forward to it, but I doubt if the press will ever stop their agenda and I think it's unAmerican..even if the media was Right-leaning...well, 'leaning' is a euphemism..I guess I have to say even if the media NEVER GAVE THE LEFT A BREAK. Ya, THAT'll happen!!!!! thanks..
