RUSH: Mike in Maysville, Kentucky. Mike, welcome, I’m glad you waited. You’re next on the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How are you?
RUSH: Very well, sir. Thank you.
CALLER: Wonderful. First of all, real quick point, I’d like to apologize to you, sir. I have been a lifelong Democrat all my life, and this election was very important to me — and under the old axiom, keep your friends close and keep your enemies closer, I decided to listen to you and a couple other hosts. You are very… I like you. And, quite frankly, it comes to find out you’re not my enemy. We may disagree on certain social issues, but you give me the facts and I check ’em out and you are absolutely right.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much. That’s very big of you.
CALLER: Kudos to you, and I never thought I’d say that. I have listened to sound bites of you, sir, and come to find out they were all taken out of context, and that’s not fair.
RUSH: No, but it’s the way the game’s played. The left can’t defeat you in the arena of ideas —
CALLER: I understand.
RUSH: — they try to discredit people and that’s it.
CALLER: I understand. It works both ways, on both sides, but since you are, you know, a figure, it seems that they come after you more. And it wasn’t fair. So I do like to apologize, but that isn’t the reason why I called. It’s one of the reasons. The reason why I called is because of the poll yesterday that seems to be that I’m a white Democrat — a lifelong Democrat, a very old Democrat — who is married to a black woman from Mississippi who is extremely liberal, and neither one of us are going to vote for Obama.
RUSH: Well, I know what you mean. I’ve got a time problem here and I can’t move the break. I don’t mean to be rude, but that was a poll AP, ripping white Democrats as one-third of them racist ’cause they won’t vote Obama. The Philadelphia Daily News has done it today. I’ve got it in the Stack.
