RUSH: Here is Florence in Bandon, Oregon, you’re next on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi. I’ve never heard before you, until May when I had to move and I had the radio, before I got my TV turned on. And you’re the only one I can seem to get any real news from. I turn to the cable channels trying to find something out about Mr. Obama, and all I get is Mr. McCain being bashed all over the place. You know, I’ve been a Democrat for almost 50 years, and this is the first time that I’m not voting Democrat. I can’t understand Mr. Obama. He walks all around a question that he’s asked and then when he gets through you wonder, what did he say?
RUSH: Well, that’s just because you’re apparently not smart enough in their eyes to understand his brilliance.
CALLER: You know, I don’t really care how many homes Mr. McCain has or that he doesn’t know. All I care about, as long as he doesn’t ask me to pay his bills, I don’t care how much he makes. Good luck to him. He’s got all that money.
RUSH: He doesn’t have it; his wife does.
RUSH: He’s got a prenup, for crying out loud.
CALLER: When I got married, I owned a home, too, in my own name, and my husband didn’t even know I had it.
RUSH: How many years ago was that?
CALLER: Oh, that’s been about 50 years ago.
RUSH: Well, that didn’t happen 50 years ago.
CALLER: Well, I did it.
RUSH: Good for you. Good for you.
CALLER: Yeah, but, you know, you’re the only one that really gives me any news that I can understand about these people.
RUSH: Well, I’m happy to hear you say that, because based on what you’ve said, I value you as a credible consumer, making a choice. You know, you don’t sound like you’re excessively partisan one way or the other, you’ve just been a lifelong Democrat, but you can listen to Obama say nothing and realize he’s saying nothing.
CALLER: Yeah. And as far as his running mate for vice president, it sounds like he’s going to be the president and not Obama.
RUSH: Well, you know, that’s a good point because in a battle of egos here you’ve got two giant egos, but I think Biden’s is even bigger than Obama’s, it’s just Biden doesn’t have The Messiah complex that Obama does.
CALLER: Yeah, but I just wanted to thank you for all your information.
RUSH: Well, thank you. I appreciate that, Florence. It’s really great to hear from you. Thank you for taking the time to try to reach us.
CALLER: Thank you. Bye-bye. Take care.
RUSH: Okay. You do the same.
