RINOs and the Christian Right


RUSH: All right. Dave in Charlottesville, Virginia, hello.

CALLER: Hey, Rush. How are you doing?

RUSH: Good. Thank you, sir.

CALLER: Hey, Rush. I'm very excited to talk to you. I've been listening to you for like 15 years. Let me pull over here so I don't lose you. Rush, I've got a comment that I don't know about. There's probably not a solution to it, but it's a frustration of mine. I am conservative, a fiscal conservative. This fiscal insanity of the debt, all of it is just driving me nuts. The taxation, the huge government, the whole thing, it's all driving me crazy, and I have a couple kids in college and what I'm hearing from them is what I'm hearing from a lot of people where I live: We drive away a lot of people with the religious component of the conservative platform. It scares them to death. When they think of conservatives they think of just that.

RUSH: Well, let me ask you a question: What do you think we should do about those Christians?

CALLER: I don't know. I don't know. I just... I don't know. I don't have an answer. But I know that's a fact.

RUSH: Do your kids tell you this is what they're hearing or do you hear it or do you think it yourself?

CALLER: Well, I hear this from my daughters. I've got one daughter who is a staunch conservative and --

RUSH: Where does she go to school?

CALLER: Pardon me?

RUSH: What school does she go to?

CALLER: She goes to Washington and Lee (University) in Virginia.

RUSH: Washington and Lee in Virginia. Okay.

CALLER: Which is a very conservative bastion. My other daughter goes to... I live in Charlottesville, which Neal Boortz refers to as "the People's Republic of Charlottesville."

RUSH: Yeah, I was going to say.

CALLER: So we're in the minority. My other daughter goes to VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University) in Richmond and is very liberal, and I can't talk to her because of this issue. She knows the debt is insane. She knows the big government doesn't work.

RUSH: You know this is really about abortion, right?

CALLER: Yeah, I think it comes down to that. I do.

RUSH: Does your wife henpeck you about it?

CALLER: What's that?

RUSH: Does your wife henpeck you about it?

CALLER: N-not at all. No. I mean... No. We're --

RUSH: Because I've heard this. I was at a party in the Hamptons back in the early nineties. This is a really, really powerful party. I don't want to mention the names but you would know every Republican that was at this dinner party. After dinner we went out on the deck of this man's house. I must have had four people come up to me. One of them poked me in the chest and said, "What are we going to do about the Christians?"
