“I think she’s too unattractive to win.”
That was Dr. Savage’s blunt assessment of Hillary Clinton’s chances of returning to the White House, this time as president instead of first lady.
He added: “She’s way past her prime. Plus she has a lousy track record. What did she achieve as secretary of State? She wrecked Libya. She destroyed the Arab Crescent. She gave us a new Cold War. She called Putin ‘Hitler.’
“That’s not a great set of qualifications,” he concluded (Free audio).
As for the current occupant of the Oval Office, Savage called it “crazy” that so many Americans are “defending Obama’s actions” surrounding the Bergdahl prisoner swap.
These so-called “liberals,” Savage continued, would even go along with the president if he interred thousands of other Americans in the name of “national security”: “After all, one of Obama’s mentors did that. Remember, good old ‘Honest Abe’ Lincoln arrested journalists who didn’t report on the Civil War in the ‘right’ way. So don’t kid yourself and say, ‘It can’t happen here.’
“It has happened here, and it will happen again” (Free audio).
By releasing five high-ranking Taliban terrorists in exchange for the possibly traitorous U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Obama has succeeded in “replenishing the enemy,” Limbaugh declared this week.
“The point here is to empty Guantanamo,” Limbaugh reiterated, an act that amounts to “restocking the enemy with their front-line people” during “a war on terror that is still underway.”
As far as that war is concerned, Limbaugh had a lot to say about the deteriorating situation in Iraq.
“Two and a half years ago I predicted this,” Limbaugh said to his audience. “That once we pulled out of there, we could probably predict that the Iraqis would ask us to do something to help them. But what was easily predictable was that Obama would say ‘no.’ … I think this administration wants both Iraq and Afghanistan to fail as stable democracies” (Free audio).
Levin explained Dave Brat’s stunning primary victory over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor by saying, “People are sick and tired of centralized government and the impact it has on their life” (Free audio).
The talk show host, who’d been a vocal supporter of Brat’s during the campaign, went further.
This shocking win, Levin said, proves that the GOP should “stop chasing ethnic groups,” and “stop chasing genitalia.” The Republicans, he added, need to “talk to the American people, talk about liberty, opportunity, explain to them that Obama is wrong and that we need to unleash the American people and the economy” (Free audio).
Laura Ingraham was another staunch supporter of “tea party” challenger Dave Brat, going so far as to appear at his side at a campaign rally.
After his win, she explained the average voter was attracted by Brat’s positions on amnesty and immigration.
“Thousands upon thousands of people, adults and unaccompanied minors, are streaming across the border,” Ingraham said, but “the so-called smart establishment people are either not commenting on it, or they are just not equipped to deal with it or don’t want to deal with it.”
She also pointed out that Brat received little support from the people who should have been his natural allies: “The National Tea Party Network, Tea Party Patriots, Freedomworks, I don’t believe any of these organizations did anything for Dave Brat.”
The mainstream media took note of Ingraham’s role in Brat’s victory. Calling her a “nervy and entertaining conservative,” the New York Daily News talked to her after Brat’s “stunning” win.
“People are fed up with B.S. politicians who think they can simply get elected with name recognition and big party titles,” she told the paper.
Los Angeles residents are familiar with the work of “Sabo,” an anonymous artist who “plasters conservative art around the notoriously liberal city.” This week, Beck interviewed the elusive artist, without revealing his face or his real name.
Sabo explained his rationale for creating his guerrilla posters.
“Anything that reaches your eyes, ears or heart is coming from the left,” he told Beck. “We have a great message, we just don’t have anyone to tell it because they’ve all been indoctrinated” (Free audio).
He’s one of the wealthiest broadcasters in America, but that doesn’t make Beck’s latest purchase any less breathtaking. He and his Mercury One charity paid $350,000 for a 48-star U.S. flag that flew over a ship at Normandy on D-Day.
Beck dubbed the flag “the 20th century’s ‘Star Spangled Banner,” and paid 10 times the flag’s pre-auction estimate so he could add it to his growing Americana collection.
