RUSH: Christine in Ojai, California, nice to have you here. Hello.
CALLER: Thank you very much for taking my call, Rush.
RUSH: My pleasure.
CALLER: I have a theory that may answer your question on why people love Obama so much.
RUSH: Ooh, I’d love to hear this, even though I think I have all the answers to that, but I’d love to hear your theory.
CALLER: Well, it’s just my own theory. I used to listen to a certain therapist on the radio. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say her name, but, at any rate, she used to have a lot of callers, mostly —
RUSH: Let me guess. If I’m right, say so, if I’m wrong don’t give the real name.
CALLER: All right.
RUSH: Barbara De Angelis.
CALLER: (laughing) Wrong.
RUSH: Okay, 35 seconds here, so make it fast. I won’t interrupt.
CALLER: Here’s my theory. She used to get a lot of calls from women and men who were in very abusive situations, beatings, emotional abuse, didn’t like the children, held the money, terrible things. The doctor would say, ‘Well, why do you stay?’ And inevitably the answer would be, ‘Because I love him.’
RUSH: Right. It’s like I said yesterday, ‘Cheat on me, but don’t tell me.’
RUSH: Obama can do anything in the world, ‘Just don’t tell me what he’s really doing because I love the guy.’ He’s a cult leader. Battered Liberal Syndrome. Cheat on me, just don’t tell me.
