RUSH: Here's Tony in Tampa. I'm glad you called, sir. It's great to have you here.
CALLER: Yeah. Thanks, Rush. Could you imagine if a Republican had this miserable, destructive record that Obama has with the unending golf, the never-ending vacations? You could imagine what the likes of Chris Matthews, that Sleeping Beauty Bob Beckel, Knee-Jerk Geraldo, Juan Williams, and Alan Colmes would do. They'd be crawling the walls! They would be threatening to gas themselves right on the air. It would be a billion-man march. Every street would be clogged with people. You wouldn't be able to get your car out of the driveway! You'd be eating pinto beans for weeks on end.
RUSH: Yeah, that's true.
CALLER: Let me tell you something else, Rush. The worst thing that's ever happened to the working poor -- people above the poverty line, below the poverty line, on small and fixed incomes -- are these current Alinskyite Obama Democrats steeped in Leninism, with their global warming, their windmills and their solar panels. Now they're gonna be closing more coal-fired plants! That means everything's gonna get jacked up at the supermarkets, department stores. Everything!
RUSH: Why do they want to do all this, Tony? Why do they want to cause all this damage?
CALLER: I'll tell you why. Because it's "ideology uber alles," and they couldn't give a rat's backside about the poor.
RUSH: Did you say "rat's backside" or "rat's ass"?
CALLER: No, I said "rat's backside."
RUSH: You can say "rat's rectum." That has more alliteration to it.
CALLER: Yeah, and it's a whole lot smoother.
RUSH: Well, yeah. It would be, too. There's no question. But it seems like anybody with common sense would know that their policies are causing this destruction. Why don't they care about it, Tony?
CALLER: You know, Rush, I was watching Julie Roginsky. She was on Cavuto with the great Charlie Payne, and coal was brought up. So she goes, "Coal? Oh, that's horse-and-buggy stuff!" Coal is 43% of all electricity we get -- 43% comes from coal! But prehistoric Stone Age windmills and solar panels? "Oh, let's spend billions on that!" We only get what percent of the electricity from windmills and solar panels? But that? "That's the thing, man! Let's take billions of dollars out of the workingmen and women and their pockets and let's take care of business with windmills and solar panels, but coal that has kept this country alive and thriving for years? Oh, that's horse and buggy!"
RUSH: Tony, who is Julie Roginsky?
CALLER: She's a Democrat-Obama-Alinskyite, and she's on that panel, and she's trying to fake it like she's for the middle class.
RUSH: On what panel?
CALLER: The panel with Charlie Payne, Cavuto, and --
RUSH: Oh, somewhere on Fox?
CALLER: That's right. That's right.
RUSH: You know, you need to stop watching these people, because they're not gonna change, Tony, and I really care about you. You've gotta stop watching these people. All these names you mentioned, they're not gonna change, and you're exactly right: If all of this were happening with a Republican president -- which it wouldn't. It couldn't, by definition. We don't believe in these policies. But if it were, you're right: They'd be raising holy hell about it and they'd be calling the president cold-hearted, mean, extremist, exclusionary, rich.
They'd be all over a Republican president. But that isn't gonna change. So your blood pressure is gonna suffer if you keep watching these people. I mean, they're designed to get you ticked off. They're designed to make sure you question your sanity. You're gonna watch these people and say, "How in the world can we have such idiotic people?" and you're gonna think maybe they're not crazy and you are.
And I assure you, Tony, you're not.
Trust me on that.
