An Independent for Santorum


RUSH: Ellie in Cape Fair, Missouri. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.

CALLER: Yes, sir.


CALLER: Are you there?

RUSH: Yeah, I'm right here.

CALLER: Okay. Um, I don't know. My phone might go dead so if it goes dead I'm sorry. But I had to call because of your last caller. I'm so independent; my family is so independent. We voted for John Kerry. That's when we first saw Barack Obama. We did our homework on him, and he scared the holy livin' bejeebies out of us, but Rick Santorum is who we're backing because we need someone like him. We need morals back in America. We need God back in America. I wish people would realize that. We are independents, and we want that. Rick Santorum's coming to Springfield, Missouri... (deep breath) I'm sorry. I'm very nervous. Rick Santorum's coming to Springfield, Missouri, on Saturday. My daughter, who's 20 years old, is going to see him 'cause she fully supports him.

RUSH: Yeah?

CALLER: We're so sick of this stuff we see on TV. We're so sick of being afraid to say "God." We're so sick of it being taken away from America. And we're independents. We're not Republicans. We're not Democrats. We're independents. And we have a voice, and we want someone like Rick Santorum. We want what he stands for. I know the economy's very important, but that will get taken care of. It really will. That's what we're electing all these people for. But Rick Santorum stands for something that we need in the White House, and America needs it. I just had to say that, okay?

RUSH: I hear you. I hear you. I'm still stuck on the fact that as an independent you voted for John Kerry. You are too independent.

CALLER: That was my first time I ever voted in my life.

RUSH: Well, that explains it. You didn't know what you were doing. You just hated Bush.

CALLER: No, I was very angry with George Bush.

RUSH: Yeah.


RUSH: Why?

CALLER: But I understand what you're saying, and now I could kick myself, but --

RUSH: I'm just curious, though. Why were you mad at Bush?

CALLER: I really believed that we should have put more focus on Afghanistan and secured it more --


CALLER: -- than taken off and gone into Iraq.

RUSH: Yeah. Yeah.

CALLER: I watched the whole thing. And honestly, Rudy Giuliani, I was so impressed with him that I just wanted him to be my president.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: But I'm not a Democrat or a Republican. I am an independent. And like I said, that was the first time I voted. My daughter will be casting her first vote for president. She wants it to be for someone like Rick Santorum, not Romney. Not at all.

RUSH: Okay, okay. I got it. If I don't stop you here, the Romney people are gonna charge me with being unfair to them. We got it. We heard you, and I'm glad you called. Thank you very much, Ellie. I appreciate it.
