RUSH: Philip in Belleville, Illinois. I'm glad you waited. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. Longtime listener, first-time caller.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: It's funny that last montage you did about everybody talking about vulture capitalism and everything when our own current politicians are doing insider trading. But anyway, my point is that when President Obama was first elected, and basically the point is is that you had come out and said that you hoped that his policies fail.
CALLER: Now the Republican and Democratic establishment are both jumping on that particular bandwagon, especially the Republicans, and using those particular aspects of what you said.
RUSH: Oh, yeah. They're all now talking about how it's a "failed" presidency. No, it's not, by the way. But they're all now very comfortable using the word "failure" in conjunction with Barack Obama. But, yeah, I was a viper back then when I said that.
CALLER: Oh, absolutely. Maybe what they should do or maybe what you should do is run a montage of all the current politicians doing, you know, the number of times that they said failed policies.
RUSH: Oh, that could take a whole hour. But that's a good idea. You know, that's a lot of work for Cookie and the boys up there, but, yeah, that would be all the people, failed presidency, failed this, failed that. Maybe even interspersed with people who were criticizing me for saying, "I hope he fails." "It's a little harsh. We don't want to speak that way. We all hope the president succeeds." I got so sick and tired of hearing that. People were saying, "No, we hope the president succeeds." No, we don't hope the president succeeds. This president is not America succeeding when he succeeds. I wonder how many people still haven't figured that out on our side, by the way. He's just in over his head, just a little bit over his head. Doesn't quite understand it. Doesn't quite get it. A little naive.
