RUSH: Here’s Ruth in Brooklyn. Thank you for waiting. Ruth, nice to have you with us on the EIB Network.
CALLER: Wow. This is like a real treat, Rush. I’m nervous. I’m going to try and speak succinctly because I know your time is little and it is a treat to be able to speak to you. But, you know, I heard you for the first time in 1999. I heard you on the radio, and I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, who is this guy? I love the way he thinks. This is how I think,’ and over the years, listening to your program, listening to you teach and explain modern-day events and what all the hidden agendas are underneath, lifting back those covers and exposing that stuff, you’ve really… It’s not like you have converted me, it’s like you’ve been a catalyst to help me think for myself —
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: — and be in touch. Unlike the Democrats, who want me to be dependent on them, actually you make me more independent and a more analytical and a sharper thinker, and I think what you hear from your callers is a lot of gratitude and respect and, you know, you’re larger than life. You’re what we need in this country to help us sort through all this stuff that comes through the Drive-By Media.
RUSH: Did you by any chance grow up a Democrat or a liberal?
CALLER: (laughter) Um, yes.
RUSH: You see, I could tell. I just knew because this realization that you’ve experienced, this revelation, this rebirth since 1999, has been profound to you.
CALLER: It’s changed my life — and, you know what? I raised my two girls to listen to you, and let me tell you, they are sharp, and they are great thinkers, and you can’t put much past them — and they require more of the men in their life, because of you. And I’ll tell you, you are very articulate about religion and its proper role in politics, and there’s no way that you can separate the two, because politics is really the study of people and their issues, and people who believe in God, they live out of the center of their hearts. Those issues motivate everything they do. So anyway, I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done. You just made my life so much richer, smarter, and, you know what, when I have to go do something and I can’t pay attention to events, I know you’re there, and I’m able to give my full attention to my projects and I really appreciate that and I really appreciate you addressing the Mitt Romney situation.
RUSH: Well, thank you very much. All of this is mutual. You and everybody else in the audience mean as much to me. You mean more to me than whatever it is I mean to you, and I’m not trying to diminish what you said. I know I’m a force of nature. Thank you very much.
