RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): I want to explain my theory here to you. Admittedly, it's going to sound simplistic to many of you who think there has to be something deep and dark to explain this, and I think we can explain all of this in three words: race, media, history. Race, media, history explains this. And what I mean by that is this: There isn't anyone, there isn't anyone in government, there isn't anyone on Capitol Hill, there isn't anybody in the drive-by media who wants to be the person who will be recorded in history, and thus always known in history and forever attacked in the media. No one wants to be the one who denied the first African American president, his agenda, or his choices. John Roberts, I think, pretty much said, look, I'm not going to sit here and be the guy that presides over a decision here that denies the first African -- well, the president, he didn't say the first African American -- the president such a major, major piece of legislation that was duly passed by the elected representatives of the people. He didn't want to go anywhere near it. Nobody to this day after almost seven and a half years, nobody lifts a finger to stop Barack Obama. Nobody lifts a finger to deny Barack Obama. Nobody lifts a finger to oppose Obama on the serious agenda items that are transforming this nation and are resulting in the implementation of his real agenda.
I don't think James Comey wanted to be the guy noted forever in history and attacked as such, I don't think Comey wanted to be the guy known for torpedoing the candidacy of the first woman nominated by her party to seek the presidency of the United States. So, race/gender, media, history. Look at the IRS scandals, Comey was the FBI scandals, well, he was running the FBI during all of that, and nobody paid a price for any of that either because that's still Obama. Nobody wants to go anywhere near it. I mean, the evidence is abundant, it is everywhere that race has paralyzed all serious opposition and policy to Barack Obama. You know as well as I do that if it were anybody but Obama and Hillary Clinton the exact opposite would be happening here. And I'll tell you this, when Obama is gone, when he’s no longer in the White House, and particularly if the Republicans win the White House, if it's Trump you watch how quickly our laws once again revert to their former status and importance. The media and the Democrats will easily hold Donald Trump accountable to the law for his agenda and do everything they can to stop it, everything they can to railroad it, everything they can to torpedo it. But when it comes to, my gosh, what kind of secret information do they have on Comey that would turn him into this quivering mess, that will not proceed -- that question is asked so much and offered up so often as an explanation for the inexplicable, and I think it's not that complicated.
