RUSH: Maria in upstate New York, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Wow. Rush, what an honor to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: Fantastic. I was calling about something you were talking about earlier in the program, and it's what I think with Obama, which is he is just a facade. I mean, I guess we all sort of see it now. But when it really hit me was when during his campaign he was over in Germany and Berlin --
CALLER: -- and he was speaking to the German people, to Europe, and he was running as the American president. It was such a contrived thing, and it was a manipulative thing, and it was to make people think that George Bush was such an idiot, and --
RUSH: What I got --
CALLER: -- that's what America's troubles were, was George Bush. And I think America is a very... The American people are such trusting people. The average American is a trusting person, and they want to believe the best in just about everybody, and I think the only reason that Obama was able to get this over on us was because the press wasn't doing their jobs. And I think it's something. Obviously you've been talking about this for years, and I think a lot of people, again, average Americans are just waking up because it's so blatant this time.
CALLER: When he spoke at the Democratic convention for John Kerry -- and I have very few friends that are conservatives and I myself am fairly new, - probably ten years a conservative -- I said to a friend of mine, "I could almost vote for that guy for president if I actually thought he were honest."
RUSH: You are kidding me! You're telling me that you saw Obama speak at the 2004 Democrat convention and you said you could vote for the guy?
CALLER: I said, "I could almost vote for the guy if I thought he were being honest," and I didn't know anything about him at that point. But the more I got to see him the more I knew it was just a manipulation.
RUSH: All right, what is it gonna take? You tell me.
CALLER: What is what gonna take?
RUSH: I'm gonna ask you.
RUSH: What is it gonna take for you in the future to never, ever again get bamboozled for these people? What is it gonna take for you to realize when you see a liberal speak that you should be suspicious of everything because the odds are 80 to 90% of it, if not all of it, is a lie.
CALLER: Well, I don't think I was bamboozled, though. I said I think --
RUSH: You said you coulda almost voted for the guy.
CALLER: No, no, no. That's not what I said.
RUSH: What I'm saying is anybody with a (D) next to their name, no chance, no way, disqualified, no way, for anything, not even dogcatcher. I see a (D) next to their name, I don't care what they say, I don't care what they look like, I don't care what they do. No.
CALLER: Right. That's exactly the way I am, but what I'm saying is that the things that's what saying about uniting America and not dividing America were actually true, I could vote for him, as someone who doesn't vote for Democrats.
RUSH: What is it going to...? Okay, let me rephrase it. I'm glad you said that. What is it going to take from you to realize America will never be unified?
CALLER: Oh, I think I kinda known that.
RUSH: What is it gonna take for you to realize America never has been unified?
CALLER: Well, yes, I mean -- I think I know that. There's never -- and I don't think you want --
RUSH: There are forces of evil that want to destroy America that have to be defeated. We're never going to unify with them.
RUSH: And the people that are on that side have a (D) next to their names. So whenever they show up and speak, their objective is to fool everybody into thinking, "Okay, I can get rid of the strife," because they know people don't like the strife, they know most people don't like the arguments, the partisanship. So they come on and they lie to make you think they can make it go away.
RUSH: If 9/11 couldn't unify us, nothing will.
CALLER: Oh, you're right. You are right.
RUSH: You know what I remember about that Obama speech?
RUSH: Nothing. What I remember about that speech is his wife. Honest. Folks, honestly. I don't remember one thing 'cause I tuned it out, 'cause I knew it was all a lie. It was being delivered by a Democrat at a convention that had nominated John Kerry. For crying out loud, what are we talking about here? But when I saw Michelle come out there and I saw that introduction, Barack Obama told me everything I needed to know about him. She gave one of the most forceful, supportive, upbeat speeches. I have never seen a political wife speak of her husband that way in my life, and he came out and ignored her.
CALLER: I don't see remember that.
RUSH: "Here he is, my man, my baby's daddy, my man! He's the greatest man, Barack Obama," and he came out and ignored her and didn't pay her a bit of attention, and I said this doesn't compute here. You at least give her a kiss. You at least put your arm around her, raise her hand with yours and acknowledge the applause. But he just ignored her. She didn't exist when he came out there. That's what I remember about it.
CALLER: Yeah, I don't remember that.
RUSH: Aren't you glad you called today? (laughing)
RUSH: Aren't you glad you called me today? (laughing)
CALLER: I am glad. My whole point was that I think that we as Americans, the average American wants to believe the best about people but by the time Obama was running in his own campaign and the things that he said, I became very fearful of the guy.
CALLER: When he was inaugurated that night and he stepped down on that stage in Chicago, it sent a chill down me because I'd never seen anything like it before where a man who's just elected president of the United States walks out with his family and then they walk off and leave him out there alone. It's just not right.
RUSH: Okay, it's the same thing I saw in 2004 at the convention. It's creepy.
CALLER: It's very creepy.
RUSH: They didn't exist.
RUSH: You know, they're ornaments -- and I'll guarantee you, when he got back to the hotel after that speech in 2004, he heard about it from her. I'll guarantee you she said, "Never again, buddy, are you gonna treat me and disrespect me that way after I went out and did all that for you and you pretend I don't exist?"
CALLER: Well, I'll have to go back and look at that online.
RUSH: You go back and watch and see... No, wait a minute. You're not telling me you have it on tape?
CALLER: No, online!
RUSH: Oh, watch it online. Yeah, I keep forgetting you can do that. See, I don't watch videos online 'cause I can't hear 'em.
CALLER: Oh, okay.
RUSH: It's a fact of being deaf. Computer videos mean zilch to me. At any rate, I'm glad you called. The Berlin speech. Do you know what the point of the Berlin speech was? Barack Obama saying, "To hell with America, I'm the world."
CALLER: Yeah. And that's also creepy.
RUSH: Very creepy.
CALLER: And it was very creepy when --
RUSH: Let me tell you something. I looked at crowd shots. I look at the camera shots of the crowd, and the Germans are setting there drinking beer. It was like Octoberfest. They weren't listening to what the guy said. The whole thing was staged for us. The god echo, the big crowd on the mall, this kind of stuff, and the Germans had just been recruited. I wouldn't be surprised if they gave away the beer to get 'em to show up.
RUSH: Those people do nothing but stage everything they do to play off what you describe as the good intentions, the hopes of the American people, they want to see the best in everybody. My objective, therefore, is to get as many people as possible to, when they see a (D) next to somebody's name, be suspicious and to accept nothing at face value. You know, believe half of what you see of a Democrat and none of what you hear.
RUSH: I've just had it confirmed, they did give away free beer over there in Berlin and there was a free rock concert -- I remember this -- before Obama showed up.
