Final Weekend: Obama Wants the Election Over, We Want Obama's Presidency Over
Rush Limbaugh ^ | 11/02/2012 | Rush Limbaugh

RUSH: Look, I don't want to -- not bore you. That's not the word. I don't want to wear anybody out, and I don't know what the fatigue factor is. I hear people talking about they just want this election over. People in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, just want this election over. I think it's the Obama people who want this election over. I mean, I want the election to happen, but I'm not tired of this. I could sit here every day telling people the truth about this country. I could sit here every day telling you what I fear if Obama's reelected, until everybody agreed with me, until everybody heard me. I am not worn out defending this country. I'm not worn out informing people about the fears that I have in regard to Obama and the Democrat Party.

I want the election over because I want to win it. I want to start moving forward. I want to stop this regression that we're in, economic recession, this silly transformation of America that Obama has undertaken. We want to get busy and start reversing this. But I hear in the media, CNN today, "Well, you know, people are really getting tired of the election." I don't doubt that there are people tired of the election. I think the people that mostly want this all done with and over with are people who are probably more aligned with Obama, and that's 'cause they're not feeling good about it. The polls are out, Rasmussen's out today, it's a dead heat, 48-48. Yesterday it was Romney up two. So there's not one pollster out there sticking his neck out, not one.

The only thing that you can say about these polls is that in none of them is Obama at 50. And that matters. When the incumbent is not at 50, I mean, that's a rule of thumb. So is the rule of thumb about he who wins independents wins the election. I don't care what the overall result is, in all the polls it's Romney up, for the most part, double digits. Not in all, but in many of them double digits in independents. The enthusiasm and the momentum, there's no question where it is. It is for Romney. Just this morning Obama was in Hilliard, Ohio. It's outside a larger city in Ohio, and the crowd was a measly 2,800, for the president of the United States on the last weekend before Election Day. The fire department told Fox News, 2,800 people, so they asked the campaign about this.

By the way, Obama's in an open collar shirt and a flight jacket, and Romney was making his speech today, and was it was just a bang-up speech. I had a guy send me a note saying he would have paid to get in to hear this speech today. It was Romney talking about this country and our future, and where we're going, and where he's going to take us. It was uplifting. It was inspirational. Obama is none of that. And Romney's out there in a suit and tie. I mean, side by side in terms of who looks like they already are president, it looks like Romney. But all this stuff is still surface. You can't draw any conclusion from it. All you can is plug it in to what your best thinking is and what you think you know. And then you tell yourself where we think we are. I don't see any Obama momentum. I don't see any Obama enthusiasm. I don't even really see much from him.

Clinton's out there saying, (doing Clinton impression) "I may be the only one in America, but I think I am more excited about Barack Obama now than I ever have been." It's not an exact quote, but it's pretty close. "I may be the only guy in America." he did say that. I think the Obama people want this election over. The rest of us want Obama over. And that is what keeps us inspired and what keeps us going. So Romney's drawing huge crowds. Obama's drawing little piddly crowds. Obama's spending all these last days these swing states. You know, Moochelle, the first lady, is in Virginia at two all-black colleges. The weekend before the election, what in the world is the first lady doing at all black colleges? Shouldn't that sort have been sewn up by now?

So when you see that, folks, when you see something like that, you think, "Well, they've gotta go out there and fire up the base. They don't even have that." Their enthusiasm just isn't quite there.

I don't call this national weariness "fatigue factor". I have to disagree with Rush here. I call it the "enthusiasm gap." Our side is motivated and all fired up! We want Obama gone. And the Democrats are not just that excited about O. The MSM and their pollsters have succeeded in making the election look close. Despite their help however, Obama cannot reach 50%. That's where things stand the final weekend before the election. The Left has convinced itself it has finally stopped the Mittmentum. Maybe but they haven't been able to bring O on top. And I don't think they'll be able to do that before Tuesday.

Sad. In the four years since Obama's election in 2008, we still have not been able to get Obama to talk about the following issues about his background:

1. Social Security number: Why does Obama have a Connecticut number? Nobody confronted Obama on this question and other questions below.

2. Passport to Pakistan: What passport, what country did obama use to visit the relatives of college friends in Pakistan?

3. Occidental and Columbia college applications: Did Obama register as a foreign student?

4. Selective Service form: Why is the signature on Obama's form very different from the signature he uses today?

5. Hospital: Why won't Obama let his Hawaii birth hospital release information about his birth?

Yes, sad. In spite of all the journalists in the world looking for answers to the questions above, sadly, we are no closer today in 2012 than we were in 2008.

Why won't somebody confront Obama with the questions above?

Remember: Fool me once in 2008, shame on you. Fool me twice, again in 2012, shame on me. Remember this statement if you voted for obama in 2008.

Not four more years, but four more days.

Why the hate? Obama has put 262,000 more people on disability than have dropped off of unemployment. And added 5.4 million to the food stamp rolls. Since “recovery summer” 2010.

He’s going to punish America as much as possible until Jan 20th, you know.

Well, there's not a whole lot he can actually do (at least not permanently), he can't push any far left legislation through congress because the house remains Republican. If he releases any crazy executive orders, they can be rescinded by Romney on day 1, ditto with any departmental regs. I think the worst thing he could do is issue mass pardons or something.

Rush calls Reid “dingy” pronouncing it as dinjy Harry. I believe the word is dingy, pronounced as dinghy, as “ding bat” Harry in shortened form. NBD though.

He can release a lot of thugs from prison, alright.
That would do a lot of damage.

True, but we'd much rather deal with it now than in 2017.
