RUSH: Bloomington, Illinois. Floyd, I’m glad you waited. Welcome to the Rush Limbaugh program. Hello.
CALLER: Yeah, Rush?
CALLER: Yeah, mega dittos, sir.
RUSH: I appreciate that.
CALLER: Okay, Bo wanted me to talk about the speech? And provide my feelings on the speech?
RUSH: Yeah, yeah, that’s why we took your call.
CALLER: Okay. I found it very boring. You know, I wasn’t following what he was saying, you know, and everything. And I found myself a couple of times actually drifting off and not paying attention, it was so boring. Also, did you notice at the beginning, maybe I was hearing things, but at the beginning, was the crowd saying, ‘Obama! Obama! Obama!’ Did they do that little chant thing when he stepped up to the microphone?
RUSH: Before he got to the microphone they were.
RUSH: I don’t know. Yeah, when he was introduced and walking down the stairs before he took the ‘oaf.’
CALLER: Oh, okay.
RUSH: That’s when I think I heard the ‘Obama.’
RUSH: That crowd… I guarantee that crowd was not satisfied. Now, you’re not going to hear any of this elsewhere in the Drive-By Media because the Drive-Bys today are about pictures. And so you’re going to see picks swarm on the mall. You’re going to see a picture. It’s going to look like it was historical. It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to the country, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. (sigh) I got time for one more before the break. Chico, California. Cheryl, I have one minute. Make it count.
CALLER: Good morning, Rush. Thank you for taking my call.
RUSH: Yes, ma’am.
CALLER: I was calling today to tell you I am in deep mourning over the death of democracy. And the reason I say that is, in following history, I’ve noticed that when times appear tough financially, people tend to follow blindly someone that speaks well. They’re like sheep. They don’t listen to the substance, but they listen to anyone that promises them to make their life better.
CALLER: And what’s happening with Obama and his supporters is that they’re killing incentives. What’s the incentive to work and grow? There is none.
RUSH: I couldn’t agree more. However, this is not the death of democracy. I am the Doctor of Democracy. I will pronounce death. Don’t panic. I will let you know when it’s time for that.
