RUSH: From Austin, Texas, Anthony, welcome to the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Yeah, I want to make a comment but I'd like to ask you a question because this is a way I can get my point across. Rush, if you put a mouse in the same box as a snake, what would you think would happen?
RUSH: If I put a mouse in the same box as a snake...
CALLER: What would you take out? The snake will attack because that's his natural instinct. You have a lot of people calling your show. They applaud you, they praise you, they make you feel like you're walking on water, when actually you're sinking in quicksand. You do all this knocking about Barack Obama, holding Barack Obama to a double standard, when the man has been in office a year, and he's supposed to solve all of America's problems. And Barack Obama -- and I see America heading in the right direction. I'm not going to agree with you. I'm not going to go along with you just to get along, because this is who I am. But I will say that Barack Obama is doing a great job. It is the Republican Party that is dividing the United States of America. And I will also say that, if all these people knocking, hating, criticizing Barack Obama, if anything happens to Barack Obama, God have mercy on the United States of America. Like Jeremiah Wright said: "God damn America," and I'm for real with you.
RUSH: He hung up. Thank you. You know, there's a lot of anger out there on the left, folks. There is a tremendous lot of anger out there. I couldn't understand everything he said so I'm just now reading the transcription. "[H]ave mercy on the US like..." Oh, he said, "'God d--- America,' and I am for real with you," and he thinks the country is headed in the right direction. What is he, on welfare? Does this guy have a house he couldn't afford? Is this guy being kept in a house he can't afford? I don't know how you can think America is headed in the right direction unless you're feeding off your neighbors.
