Politico just ran an article arguing that there’s a desperate need to reduce regulations that are holding our economy back. Their focus was on the number of professions that now require an “occupational license.” Most of the impact is at the state level.
RUSH: Everybody's stumped today. Everybody's stymied. Everybody's curious. Can't figure it out. All of a sudden Donald Trump says he doesn't want to criticize Cruz anymore. All of a sudden Donald Trump says (paraphrased), "Yeah, you know what? I like Ted! I might even have him as my vice president if I get the nomination." "But, wait a minute! Everybody says you're thinking of suing him 'cause he's from Canada. What the hell's going on?"
RUSH: I literally felt like I was a visitor from someplace and was not at all living in the world they were talking about. These people sounded like they were in a foreign country. I mean, it was that striking. It was just beyond anything that happens in my day-to-day world, listening to these two. It was Grandma and Grandpa just arguing, and I suffered through this. And I'm gonna explain to you why.
RUSH: I like your theory. As one who has invented the whole concept of Drive-By Media, I can see where you would pick up on that with Trump. You may have a point. There may be something to this. One thing we know is that Trump is not insane; he's not stupid. He loves keeping people off balance; he loves having people sort of on guard trying to predict where he's going to do next, and he loves being able to fool people into where he's going next -- and he is a super pro at manipulating and owning the media.
RUSH: 94 million Americans not working? That's Bush's fault. Ever heard of Hurricane Katrina? Sure! Iraq war? That's Bush's fault. (And you rub your hands together if you're Obama, and you leave stage, and another successful economic fraud press conference is in the books.)
RUSH: Sounds just like Joe Stalin to me. Sounds like Lenin to me. Sounds like Marx! Sounds like all the rest of these guys to me. But his supporters think old Bernie... He does have that bond. There's no question about that.
RUSH: I haven't endorsed anybody. All I am, folks... It's very simple to understand me. I'm one of the most easily understood, 'cause I tell you everything I believe and think. I just don't believe in excommunicating people from our movement. I have never liked this idea that we have this tendency to throw people out, throw people overboard. Not just for a cycle, but forever. I don't like it.
RUSH: I don't know any more than you do about what's gonna happen. Nobody knows what's gonna happen. I mean, there are educated guesses, wild guesses, but nobody knows.
CALLER: I'm just calling to let you know that back in October you sent me your books, the children's books. I have two daughters, 3 and 5, and you told me to kind of try it out and see if they like it because they were younger. But I just wanted to call and let you know that they absolutely enjoy them. My daughter, who's 3, you sent the horse Liberty.
