Limbaugh: Benghazi Hearing Was "Cleansing Of Mrs. Clinton's Record"

RUSH LIMBAUGH: So what was happening here was the cleansing of Mrs. Clinton's record in advance of her presidential run in 2016, setting her up. Folks, this was banana republic kind of stuff. You talk about two different worlds in isolation. The ruling class, the political class, existing within its own borders, and its own world, and its own set of rules and taking care of each other and making sure that everything is fine. This is a perfunctory hearing. We had to get it out of the way, waiting for Mrs. Clinton to testify. She's been so devoted to the secretary of state job. She got sick. She's given so much to her country. She got sick. She got really bad sick, stomachache, flu. She was sniffling, blowing her nose. She had a sore throat, was really bad. (audio via MP)

She's given up so much for this country. She's given up everything. She gave everything to marry Clinton. She gave everything to prop up Bill Clinton. She gave everything. She withstood all that humiliation during the Clinton years. Clinton running around with Gennifer Flowers and Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick, Monica Lewinsky. Hillary hung in there, and Hillary made it possible for Clinton to hang in there, and Hillary, the bimbo eruptions. I mean, she's given everything to this country. She has sacrificed. She has subordinated herself to everybody's pleasures and preferences, and finally it's time for her to be rewarded and the party knows that they gave her the shaft in the 2008 presidential campaign.

That was hers. That was the plum. That was the prize. That was the payoff for hanging in with Clinton. That was the payoff for marrying Clinton. You go back to the days of her youth with Clinton. They're both at Yale and Harvard and Columbia and Wellesley or wherever else these people go, and, you know, she's in the library and a bookworm and Clinton can have his pick of women, picks Hillary. And what does he do? Takes her to Arkansas. That's part of the south, you know, where Lincoln didn't finish the job. That's where all the pro-lifers are, all the gun nuts, the bitter clingers, and Hillary moved there. It's so beneath her. She went to Arkansas because at that point it was all about Bill Clinton. Everything was about Clinton, him becoming president.


RUSH LIMBAUGH: And today was when everybody circled the wagons for her and she got a clean slate. Everything's fine. There wasn't anything wrong. "What difference does it make how these four Americans died? I don't know about Susan Rice. I couldn't care less about Susan Rice!" She threw Susan Rice under the bus, 'cause that's part of the deal, too. So now it's all over. Her record's cleansed, the campaign debt's retired, and Mrs. Clinton's path is set. She's soon to be leaving the secretary of state gig, a little recharge of the batteries.

She'll head home, keep a little eye on Bill now just to make it look good, but basically she got a Get Out of Jail Free Card. Now it's time to take a look down the road at the future, make sure that all the ducks are in a row. Biden is no Obama. Taking Biden out is gonna be easy. Biden has run for president numerous times and never gotten close. He's getting all full of himself right now, but he's a sitting duck. So 2016 is waiting to happen, that is if Obama decides to abdicate. You know, Obama may not give up the crown, just like Queen Elizabeth.
