An Obama Voter Becomes a Rush Babe


RUSH: Vienna, Virginia.  Holly, thanks for calling.  Thanks for waiting.  It's great to have you here on the EIB Network.  Hi.

CALLER:  Hi.  Thanks for taking my call.

RUSH:  You bet.

CALLER:  It's a great segue talking about closing the gender gap.  Because I'm one of those women that voted for Obama last time and I don't want anything to do with him this time.

RUSH:  Why did you vote for him the first time?  There's no wrong answer. I'm not looking to criticize you.  Don't misunderstand.

CALLER:  Oh, I know. I know.  It's just a little embarrassing for me 'cause I think of myself as a smart person, but I really got caught up in the campaign and the rhetoric and drank the Kool-Aid.  You know, I heard him talking about hope and change, uniting the country, transparency in government, and all of those things sounded really good.

RUSH:  The end of partisanship. The end of bickering and arguing and all that appealed to you?

CALLER:  Exactly.  But what I realized was, a lot of that they never really defined, so everybody had their own definition of what that change was gonna be.

RUSH:  Yep.  That was the design.  He was a blank canvas.

CALLER:  Exactly.

RUSH:  You could make him whatever you wanted him to be based on what your dreams were.

CALLER:  Right.  And I first started feeling some discomfort when I was noticing religious liberties being challenged and that kind of made me think differently and opened my eyes and I guess you could say I woke up.

RUSH:  Are you Catholic?

CALLER:  No, I'm a Christian.  But, I mean, Catholics are Christian, too, but I'm a Protestant, I guess I should say.

RUSH:  What about the War on Women?  How did that hit you, when you first heard it? I mean, that actual terminology and the accusation the Republicans were conducting a War on Women?

CALLER:  I believed it all.  I believed it.  I believed all the lies of the mainstream media.  And actually, I even owe you an apology because I believed everything they had to say about you.  So, sorry about that, sir.  But as I woke up and I was realizing all this stuff, I felt so alone. I was just thinking, "Does anybody else see what's going on?"  And I was talking to one of my clients one day, and she had all this information.  And I said, "Where do you hear all this? Where are you learning about all this?"  And she turned me on to Fox News, and I live here in the Washington, DC, area, and she told me about listening to WMAL, and that's when I first heard your program and, you know, Sean Hannity and a lot of the others.  And I just really started understanding more and more about the truth of what was going on.  So since then I've become quite involved with doing whatever I can do to get Obama out.  I've taken friends to see the 2016 movie.

RUSH:  Wow, you are all-in.  You must have really ended up feeling insulted at some point.

CALLER:  I felt insulted, but I just felt snookered, if that's a technical term.

RUSH:  I know exactly what you mean.  You fell for it, and it made you mad, and you've seen through it.  That is fascinating.  Holly, welcome home.  Welcome home.
