Kyle Becker | On 23, Jan 2013
Rush put together a media montage showing “journalists” describing in their own words (presumably) how “exciting” it was to be at the second Obama inauguration. The audio quality in the original was a bit scratchy, so the transcript is below:
ROKER: Mr. President! Mr. President! Mr. President! This is so exciting.
HALL: Just exciting, an inspiration to be here.
Acosta: I feel like I should pinch myself right now.
Mitchell: Pretty exciting for all of us out here.
CURLEY: I tell you what George, this is pretty exciting.
GUNN: A thrilling, thrilling morning. (laughter) Very exciting.
BOLDUAN: See if the President can see us.
BLITZER: Mr. President. Mr. President. (Bolduan tries to interrupt) I saw the First Lady, there’s the First Lady over there. Well, you know, we’re spectators. We’re tourists here in Washington.
WILLIAMS: America threw itself a party today.
SAWYER: This great pageant of a day in American democracy.
ROBERTS: It’s a day to say congratulations, United States of America. It is a wonderful moment.
SCHIEFFER: It was a perfect day. The crowds were large, they were joyous.
PELLEY: An amazing day in Washington.
MEACHAM: A magical moment in a second term that begins today.
BRINKLEY: It’s amazing how beloved Barack Obama is by the African American community.
MORGAN: It’s an amazing moment to have a black president being re-elected, and re-inaugurated on Martin Luther king day.
If this were a Republican president, would “journalists” in the mainstream media be acting like they were teenagers at a Justin Bieber concert? Comment below.
