RUSH: I warned you people about this. I told you this was going to happen. Bill Clinton and the Democratic Party are just a bunch of thin-skinned bullies now trying to pressure ABC and the Disney CEO, Robert Iger, into dropping the mini-series, The Path to 9/11. The entire Democratic establishment is now involved. They are essentially demanding censorship. I told you that this was going to happen. I warned you about it, and I don't know how this is going to end up, I really don't. I don't want to talk about how this is going to end up, because I don't know. I don't know what ABC is going to do. But a couple things I want to focus on here, folks.
This illustrates just how flimsy the surface on which the Clinton legacy is built. This illustrates the desire that they have to get this whole thing not shown. You know, I've always told you, when somebody says something about you, and you scream the loudest, that's the indication, "man, they must have hit gold, must have hit the bull's eye with the criticism." The Clinton administration and all of its members have tried for years now to build a legacy where one does not exist. We had a president in the nineties who did not tackle big issues, preferring, instead, to score phenomenally high approval ratings, creating the image that we had a happy-go-lucky carefree decade of rampant economic expansion, no threats anywhere, while Americans are being bombed and killed all over the world and not a single act of retaliation that had any substance was taken to avenge any of it.
What's really driving 'em nuts is, is that I have said on the radio that I know the guy who wrote it! That's in every story. "Rush Limbaugh, who knows Cyrus Nowrasteh --" Well, that automatically fires up the libs, that fires up the Clinton people and automatically discredits the work of the writer. I didn't write it. I didn't talk to Cyrus when he was writing it. Well, he did tell me that he was working on this movie a long time ago, and he'd send me a copy of it when it was done. A long time, it slipped my mind until all it is came up, until this screening in Washington. You ever heard Bush complain about any of the books that have been written about his assassination? The latest one from Cindy Sheehan, by the way. She admits she had fantasies about killing Bush before he was born or when he was a kid so he wouldn't become president. We've got this movie debuting in Canada at the film festival up there in Toronto and it's all about Bush's assassination. Do you hear the White House blowing and whining and complaining about anything?
Contrast these two administrations and contrast these two men. Does Bush whine and moan about what's in the media about him, ever? No. You know why? Because Bush is not depending on the media to write his legacy and his history. Clinton has to because there was nothing of any real substance in his administration, other than welfare reform, which was a product of the Republican Congress, that he can point back to. "We were safe, Limbaugh, we didn't have--" No, Mr. President, we were not. Do we have to go through this? You want me to go through it? World Trade Center attacks '93, we cut-and-run in Mogadishu.
