Please Take Us Back to the Mess Obama Inherited


RUSH: Huntington in Long Island. It's Felicia. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hi.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. It's an honor. Rush, you know what I wish? I wish we could get back the "mess" Obama inherited. Gas at $1.89 and unemployment at 4.7%.

RUSH: I think unemployment was in the fives, but your point is well taken. Just go back to where we were three-and-a-half years ago. Just take it back! Just put it back in the bottle.

CALLER: I wish.

RUSH: I agree with you 100%. Hell, I'd take the Clinton years over this.

CALLER: (giggles) Well, let's not go that far, but I definitely, definitely would take the Bush years back. And, Rush, one more thing.

RUSH: Yes?

CALLER: When the president is down in Colombia, it's pronounced "Co-lum-bia," not "Co-LOME-bee-ah."

RUSH: Wait a minute, now? Are you saying I'm mispronouncing something?

CALLER: No, no, no, no. I'm saying just like he mispronounces "Pok-ee-stahn," he also mispronounces Colombia.

RUSH: What does he call it?

CALLER: "Co-LOME-bee-ah."

RUSH: "Co-LOME-bee-ah"?

CALLER: Yes, "Co-LOME-bee-ah." You know, he has to put in his "Latin accent" so that, you know, he can be cool.

RUSH: "Co-LOME-bee-ah."

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: Instead of Colombia.

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: It's like, you know, like nails down the chalkboard.

RUSH: Yeah, like "Pok-ee-stahn" --

CALLER: Right.

RUSH: -- instead of "Pakistan."

CALLER: It's Pakistan, right!

RUSH: Like we say it in this country. We say "Pakistan"!

CALLER: Right, it's Pakistan, and it's Colombia.

RUSH: Colombia. And it's "Cartagena," not "Carta-hen-ya."

CALLER: (giggling)

RUSH: All right, well, it's good. Okay, I appreciate it. Thanks much, Felicia.
