RUSH: Ron in Burnham, Maine. Welcome to the EIB Network, sir. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I guess my call-in is about all the " longtime listeners" that keep calling you up and chewing you out 'cause they want you to do your thing their way. And I say, "Listen to you." Like you say, politics is politics.
CALLER: I'll have to vote for whoever gets the Republican nomination, whether I agree with them a hundred percent or not.
RUSH: That's what it boils down to, doesn't it?
RUSH: Because you're not gonna support Obama.
CALLER: No. He's ruining us, but people need to keep being told that.
RUSH: No matter what. Well, look, you know what? I appreciate your sensitivity. You're hearing all these, quote, unquote, "longtime listeners." You probably think they're not long-time callers.
RUSH: You probably think that they're just newbies who are trying to say they've been longtime listeners to give themselves credibility, and then say, "You know, I normally agree with you, but on this, Rush, you're departing from where I thought you should be." It's the nature of the game. Like you say, it is politics. I appreciate the call. This is Joe in Houston. Joe, you're next on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. It's a pleasure to talk to you. By the way, this is the first time I've called.
CALLER: Anyways, I'm a conservative here in Houston, and I think that it might not be a bad thing if Obama did get reelected, and I'm gonna give you my reason for that.
RUSH: You don't have to. I'm gonna tell you right now: NO! Why does this keep coming up? In 1992: NO! In 1988, "Rush, let the Democrats win. Let people find out how rotten they are and wipe 'em out forever." In 1992, "Rush, let Clinton win. You know, let's expose these RINO Republicans like George Bush and let's make sure people understand what a bunch of worthless creeps the Democrats are! Let 'em ruin the country, Rush, and then they'll never get elected again." And then in 2000, "Rush, come on! Let 'em elect Algore. We got a RINO, George W. Bush."
Well, let me tell you something. In 2008, the most destructive, leftist, socialist, Marxist American ever elected was elected. And as we sit here, today he's got a chance of being reelected. So the theory doesn't work. Now, I realize you're new to politics and I appreciate your calling. This comes up at least once a month here. I'm doing my best to maintain my composure. But it will not work. You're ruining the country in the process of this. Every time a Democrat wins the presidency, we lose a little of this country, and we have lost a large part of it. If he's reelected, it doesn't matter how bad people think it got. Getting it put back together is gonna be a nightmare.
