RUSH: We go to Baltimore. This is Clayton. You’re up first today. Thank you so much for waiting, and welcome.
CALLER: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I cannot believe I’m on the phone. Mega dittos from the biggest welcome mat for illegal aliens in the United States of America. (laughs) Rush, it is such an honor to talk to you. Get right to the point. You and Operation Chaos are going to be the cause of Obama winning the nomination, and I know that’s not the goal of Operation Chaos to decide who wins the nomination or not. It’s just to cause chaos. But he’s going to win not only the nomination, but I think he’ll win the presidency, and it’s because of Operation Chaos.
RUSH: Wait a second. You’re unique. Everybody thinks Operation Chaos is going to give the nomination to Hillary. You think Operation Chaos will give it to Obama, and that Operation Chaos will be responsible for Obama winning the presidency?
RUSH: How so, sir?
CALLER: Just like you said. The superdelegates are going to be the ones that pick the nominee. They will not be able to afford — see, the Democrats have got themselves in a bind because they spent a lot of time building Obama up. They are not going to be able to afford to negatively impact the black vote. Now, I know you said they have the white women to worry about, too. But if they had the choice between a 95% voting bloc of black voters and those white women that will come back to them, I think a lot sooner than the blacks will; I think they’re not going to take a chance on losing that bloc of voters. So they’re going to pick Obama to win the nomination. The presidency, Obama’s gonna beat McCain because just like a lot of other conservatives, I’m not going to vote for McCain. I’m not going to vote at all. I’m sorry, I can’t bring myself to. I could never bring myself to vote for Hillary, and Obama, Operation Chaos did do this right. It bloodied him up enough where I can’t even stomach a vote for him him, but I cannot stomach John McCain. I believe he is —
RUSH: I understand this. I’ve talked to some people who say, ‘No matter what, I can’t vote for McCain.’
RUSH. Look, if Obama… I don’t know that Operation Chaos… We have to go about this with great humility, Clayton. I don’t know that Operation Chaos will at any point be able to claim that we were the reason either Hillary or Obama got the nomination. All we will be able to claim is that they kept the chaos going. The interesting thing about this… I just have a story. I haven’t printed it out yet, but I just saw it during the break. It’s the Democrat Party elites who want this over. Democrat voters are eager for this to go on. They all want to vote in these upcoming states.
CALLER: They might want to vote, but they want to vote for one person. They’re excited about the election and Obama probably has them excited and Hillary has probably got them excited, but those delegates — those delegates — don’t want this thing to keep going on like this. They know this is hurting them the longer it does go on. So I look for them to come out and they’re going to decide, and they’re going to decide that Hillary has to step down. The ideal thing they would have wanted for both of them is to run together, but Operation Chaos has caused too much conflict between ’em now, so that they can’t probably run together — and I believe, like I said, that they’re going to pick the black bet, that 95% voting bloc, over those women that I don’t think will be as mad as long as the blacks will.
RUSH: Yeah, I think… (laughing) Clayton, you’re funny.
RUSH: I’m getting a big kick out of the way you look at this. But I don’t think Obama is an automatic winner. I think McCain can beat either of these two people, because I do think McCain is going to attract enough independents. Obama has not shown that he can get the constituency that the Democrats need. He’s getting blacks and he’s getting wealthy elites — like professors and media people and these white, liberal elites who think they’re the smartest people in the room — but he’s not getting what I would call (or what I do call) the people who make the country work. I mean, all of his associations and all of his private utterances which have been made public have served to insult those people, and I don’t think anything that happens at the convention is going to notably change this. (interruption) Yes, Mr. Snerdley? The program observer has a question. (interruption) What’s the question? Mmm-hmm. Snerdley’s question is: ‘McCain has demonstrated he can get those people?’ with a question mark. Look, isn’t this one of the things that bothers us? (laughing) McCain has demonstrated he can go out and get liberals and independents. I wish you hadn’t asked me this, because I answered it truthfully. It’s depressing, and I’m feeling really happy today over the success of Operation Chaos. Clayton, I appreciate the call.
