RUSH: So how does the budget deal pave the way for Hillary Clinton? Folks, it’s real simple. Over half of any Republican candidate’s campaign arsenal has just been neutered. The Republican Party cannot campaign by running around blaming the Democrats for destroying budget, for overspending, for threatening the very fabric economically of the country. They can’t do it. This is the Republican budget deal that Barack Obama cannot wait to sign.
So the idea that the Democrat Party and their nominee, most likely Hillary Clinton, pose a grave threat to this country’s future because of their runaway spending, their expansion of the welfare state, the expansion of the entitlement state, the creation of more and more dependents, we can’t say that anymore. A Republican presidential candidate is not saying that anymore. All the Democrats are gonna have to do is say, “Wait, wait, whoa, you’re accusing us of doing what?” And they just have to go back and cite this budget deal, which is coming up for a vote today.
