RUSH: David in northern Arkansas, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Oh, it’s good to get on your show. I’m thankful to talk to you because you’re the man who’s in a way changed my life. You changed my skull full of mush into something good. I appreciate that.
RUSH: Thank you, sir. Thank you very much.
CALLER: The point I called about was I had a conversation with one of my Democratic friends the other night, I am surrounded by them up here, and I was marveling at what he said. He said, ‘You know, it would be really nice if the next president gets a fair chance and a fair break, no matter who they are,’ and I just stopped right there, and I wrapped my mind around that. Rush, I said to him, ‘Well, you know, I could probably do that, but can you drop your maniacal, twisted, misguided hatred for George Bush?’ and he said, after a moment, ‘No,’ and it just spoke volumes to me. I’d like to know how you feel about that. What you think about that?
RUSH: I’m a little fascinated here by the liberal thought process. I always am, even though I know it better than they do. He hopes the next president gets a fair shake?
RUSH: No matter who they are?
RUSH: What the hell do you think he meant?
CALLER: Well, I don’t know. I guess I really think that he feels like it will be a Democratic president, but, you know, that’s out there right now.
RUSH: Is this Looney Toon also not admitting in saying what he said —
RUSH: — that Bush has not gotten a ‘fair chance and a fair break’?
CALLER: Right. The conversation didn’t go much further because I started talking about how we treated Clinton during his years. We didn’t bog him down in Kosovo. We helped produce a good budget. There were some things we didn’t disagree with, especially the Monica Lewinsky junk and all that, but we didn’t do that to them. They started this with us on day one. They’re not going to change, Rush. They’re disconnected between their heart and their mind, and that’s why they can’t — and that’s what you fixed me with, years ago. You reconnected my heart and my mind. You can’t think with one and feel with the other and not use ’em both.
RUSH: You know, that is profound. I have to tell you, that is profound. You don’t know how profound — not what you said about me. The whole concept that you can’t separate the heart from the mind.
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: Separating the heart from the mind, if you do that, is going to lead to never-ending internal conflict.
RUSH: The heart’s going to tell you one thing, the mind’s going to tell you another, and you don’t know which one to go with.
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: Mostly you’ll go with your heart because you want to feel good about yourself.
CALLER: There are times that one does need to overwhelm the other a little bit, but once they’re disconnected you’re crazy.
RUSH: Not if they’re on the same page.
RUSH: That’s the trick for all of us. That’s really pretty descriptive way to explain this to people. I’m glad you called, David. Thank you very much.
