RUSH: Peter in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, you’re next on Open Line Friday. Hi.
CALLER: Hello, Rush.
CALLER: How you doing?
RUSH: Good, sir, thank you.
CALLER: Second-time caller dittos.
RUSH: I appreciate that.
CALLER: Yes, I have a question for you. You kept saying these past few weeks that the Democrats are sewing the seeds for their eventual landslide defeat.
CALLER: Now, in layman’s terms or as you say in ‘for those of you in Rio Linda,’ that means they are going to lose big.
CALLER: Now, with the way the Republicans have been acting in Congress lately, and with the dwindling support among their base, just who will the Democrats lose big to?
RUSH: The American people, and I didn’t say it’s going to be in ’08. I don’t know when it’s going to be. But I’m telling you that this kind of stuff that they’re doing — and the White House, by the way, is finally fighting back on all these investigations. Three hundred investigations of the White House have been launched in 100 days by the new Democrat Congress. Attitudinally, rhetorically, the things that they’re saying and doing — investing in the defeat of their own country, demoralizing their own troops — these things are going to come back to haunt them. I made this prediction actually a long, long time ago, but not in as striking a way. What I’m comparing what the Democrats today are doing to is McGoverning themselves. You go back to 1972. When they lost, they lose huge. They lost huge. Nixon won 48 states, I think it was. Yet they go back and they look at that era as something they want to redo and replicate. They think it was one of their finest hours because they had gotten us out of Vietnam; they had forced that to happen, and that was when they were exercising their power, the Drive-By Media at the same time, the full force and the full breadth of their power, but they ended up taking it on the chin big time. Richard Cohen in the Washington Post, wrote a column a couple weeks ago worrying about this very possibility. The one thing you left out and it’s a good point you mentioned as far as ’08 is who is the Republican who is going to cause this to happen, but it’s possible, and I wouldn’t by any means doubt this.
