RUSH: Monroeville, Ohio. This is Kevin. I’m glad you called, sir. You’re next. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush.
CALLER: It’s a great honor to talk to you again.
RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.
CALLER: Hey, I want to kind of go back to, you know, we’re having this debate on whether Obama’s gonna move to the center or not.
RUSH: He has. No, he already has. He moved to the center, he’s triangulated out there.
CALLER: Exactly. Well, I think, in my opinion Obama answered that question about two weeks ago when he had that press conference, when he was fuming mad at the press. It reminds me of your saying, ‘A tiger is a tiger.’
RUSH: Yeah. He was mad at —
CALLER: I think he was so livid at the press that they didn’t understand, listen, you idiots, I am not moving an ounce. Why can’t you people understand that?
RUSH: Well, he was actually mad at liberal Democrats, his base, for calling him a sellout.
RUSH: Which would include the media, you’re right, I forgot.
CALLER: A liberal is a liberal, like you always say.
RUSH: This guy is more than a liberal. This guy is a committed socialist.
CALLER: Absolutely. I agree.
RUSH: You know, these people don’t — (unintelligible) — don’t change just because of an election. They may change how they want to appear, but he’s still who he is. Now, Clinton, I think, didn’t have as much of a core as Obama does. When Clinton moved it was really for the benefit of Clinton. When Obama moves it’s for the benefit of the movement. When Obama moves it is for Alinsky; it’s for Soros; it’s for the world’s Marxists. When he moves it is to simply camouflage who he is. Remember, all committed leftists have to do this. So he’s fulfilling the inside-the-Beltway template. There’s almost a handbook if you live inside the Beltway, after a sitting president loses big in midterm elections, the template book says he will move to his opposition, whether he does or not, it’s what he’s gonna do. It’s just what is done, everybody does this. You got a reelection coming in two years, when the people reject you as soundly as Obama was rejected he has to move in the direction of the voters. Clinton wanted to be liked. Obama wants to be liked by Reverend Wright. Obama wants to be liked by a certain group of people. Nobody is ever going to convince me that Obama is going to change from being a hard-core leftist. He’ll never admit what a hard-core leftist he is in a campaign, that’s the difference, but he is who he is; it’s not gonna change.
