RUSH: I'm going to tell you what, folks, the libs, the Democrats in this country are now dripping with contempt for the public. The public, who is becoming increasingly active about their own futures, the public who are attending these town hall meetings, and they do so at their own political peril, by the way, these Democrats if they show this contempt too much, they're going to pay big time. These libs and their media cronies have no clue what the public is feeling. They can smear them, they can degrade them, but they still have, these people still have the power to throw these political hacks out of office, and many of them are going to lose their power as a result. I'll tell you these town hall meetings erupting all over the place, we've got audio sound bites from more of them.
We've got Obama and a former reporter from ABC now working in his White House communications office, Linda Douglass, attacking Drudge for daring to point out on his website that Obama has said numerous times -- and we'll play the tapes again -- that he favors a single payer system. She says Drudge is taking it out of context. Dick Durbin is out there saying insurance companies are making sure all these people show up at these town hall meetings, it's the insurance companies. They're the villain. Alinsky rule number 13: pick the target, freeze it, isolate it, destroy it. Insurance companies are now that target for the Democrats as the Alinsky rules come to life again for the month of August. And Chris Matthews is out there wondering where are all the poor people who want health care showing up at these town meetings, where are all the Obama supporters?
Where are they? Hey, Chris, did you ever stop to think that this whole health care issue since the nineties has been trumped up and is something it isn't? Can you not read the polls your own stupid network does about how many people like their health care and don't want it changed and they don't want to lose their doctor, and they don't want to lose their insurance, they don't want to lose the plan that they have. Far more people like their health care in this country than you do. The reason people aren't clamoring and showing up at town meetings for this is 'cause they don't want it. What's surprising to me is that ACORN hasn't gotten involved here on this. It's interesting how they've dropped the ball. And also, I find it fascinating that all these Democrats, exactly what we said last week, they're starting to refer to these town hall meetings as unruly mobs, we can't promise security. No, no, no. These are orderly people. These are genuine voting American citizens.
What these Democrats are accusing you of doing who go to these town hall meetings is exactly what Obama taught people to do. He is the community agitator, he's the community organizer. Obama is the guy who taught people how to show up at events like this over and over again and rip 'em apart and tear 'em down, disrupt 'em and make sure they don't happen. And now the table's been turned, it's happening to him only this time it's not ginned up, it is genuine. It's real. People do not want this. And Chuck Schumer, Chuck-U Schumer, (paraphrasing) "I don't care, we're going to get it done by the end of the year. It's going to happen one way or the other. If the Republicans don't want to help us, fine. We're going to get it done. Screw you." The Democrat Party has now got a new slogan to the American people. It's, "Screw you!" Actually, that has been their modus operandi for as long as I've been alive. But now they're out there actually saying it in so many words. "Screw you! To hell with you."
They're just dripping with contempt for the American people, for the public. When the left organizes, whether it be the public sector unions, the AFL-CIO, ACORN, the rest, they're all encouraged, they're admired, they're even funded by the taxpayers. When hardworking people, for the first time in many cases, become involved and active, they are denounced. Let me tell you something. Democracy doesn't belong only to the leftist agitators. It also belongs to the people who pay the bills and make this country work. There is something boiling over out there now. The only question is whether it lasts. Obama's own aggressiveness has resulted in a reaction. The American people know full well now what this health care plan's all about and so much else of his agenda, and the numbers of people who are now informed is growing and they want no part of it. When he goes out and does these town hall meetings himself, he makes no acknowledgment whatsoever that there's opposition to this. He does not recognize that there's opposition, try to take that into account to soothe people, even by lying to them. He just assumes, his attitude is, everybody is in full-fledged support.
