Limbaugh: Obama CT Fundraiser Full Of "Celebrity Intercoursers"
RUSH: The latest big lie the from Obama's Truth Team is Mitt Romney wants to raise taxes on Americans while Obama wants to cut taxes. That's the latest big lie. And they're basing this ludicrous claim on a study that was written by an Obama supporter who was a senior economist for public finance and tax policy for Obama's Council of Economic Advisers. They're trying to make this thing stick, folks, by calling Romney "Romney Hood." They've got ads. They've got all their talk-meisters out spreading that word. Romney is Romney Hood. The only problem is everybody misunderstands the Robin Hood story.
I'll bet you more than half the people of this country think that what Robin Hood did was steal from the rich and give it to Lady Marian so that she would put out. If you watched the TV show, that's what you probably thought. When I was growing up, Robin Hood and his band of merry men, Lady Marian in there, and the sheriff of Nottingham Forest was an evil guy. But the sheriff of Nottingham Forest was trying to always capture Robin Hood. Everybody thinks that Robin Hood was out there stealing money from the rich and taking it back and giving it to the citizens of Sherwood Forest. Robin Hood was stealing from the government. Robin Hood was a Tea Party activist. Robin Hood was anti-taxes. And that's another myth. So many people misunderstand what Robin Hood's all about. And, of course, the Democrats don't care about the truth. They care about the illusion that they can carry forward.
I can give you all the reasons I gave you yesterday to explain liberal capitalists, and they make perfect sense. And it still doesn't satisfy me. I guess what I'm getting at is, I still think there's an opportunity to get through to these people. That may be stupid to think, too. Anyway, it could be nothing more than these people are just celebrity... what's the word that I can't say? They're groupies. They're in the movie business, but they're groupies themselves. They'll pay and raise money to hang around power. There's all kinds of stuff in here that I wouldn't do, don't do, am not interested in, and so it gets frustrating. I see people who are theoretically smart doing absolutely stupid, destructive things. I would love to ask, "Do you understand what you're doing raising money and supporting this guy? Do you understand what you're doing to the future movie-buying public? Do you understand what's gonna happen to this country if this guy wins?"
I'm left to conclude they don't understand or they don't care or they do understand and they support it, for whatever reason. It could be nothing more complicated than just a bunch of celebrity intercoursers. Anyway, so a 35 grand fundraiser, and after that Obama fled and went someplace that was 75 bucks to get in and 400 people or what have you. And that's where they announced this Romney Hood business, that Romney is the problem. Romney is going to raise your taxes. Romney's gonna take your money away from you? It's mind-numbing to listen to all this. Here's Obama speaking at Weinstein's fundraiser last night.
