RUSH: Dallas, John, welcome to the program. Great to have you here, sir.
CALLER: Hi mega dittos, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: Hey, man, I got to tell you, I’ve been listening to your show for two years and it depresses me, man, I mean is there anything good that you’re not saying that the Obama administration is doing? I mean if you ask me, he’s doing an excellent job. I listen to the left; I listen to the right. And my question is who’s telling the truth? Well, that’s up to the individual to listen to both of these networks to determine that. But I think you just got it all mixed up, man. We’re trying to bring this country together. Let it be, if we can just get there.
RUSH: Who is this ‘we’ trying to bring the country together?
CALLER: ‘We,’ as in people. We would like for this country to go forward and not be divided between rich and poor. I mean it’s ridiculous out here, man.
RUSH: Okay, but who’s the ‘we’? For how many people are you speaking?
CALLER: Millions, man.
RUSH: You are?
RUSH: Millions of Americans want us to all get along and have no division between rich and poor?
CALLER: Yes, man. I mean it’s hard to see when you’re rich, but when you’re poor you can see on the other side.
RUSH: Would you name for me the last time that you can recall in America where there were no rich and there were no poor, and the last time we all got along?
CALLER: I’m sorry, you broke up, say that again.
RUSH: How old are you? Fifty, 45, 30?
CALLER: I’m 49 years old.
RUSH: Forty-nine, all right. You’ve lived enough. Name for me a time in your life where the country has been unified, everybody got along and there was no division between rich and poor.
CALLER: Well, that’s a good question. I haven’t followed politics my whole life like a lot of other people. Since Obama has come in office, people are following politics now.
RUSH: Yeah, wonder why that is?
CALLER: Why what is?
RUSH: Why since Obama’s come into office, are people all of a sudden following politics? I’ll tell you why. I’ll tell you why. It’s because a bunch of people who here to now were apolitical, have watched the values of their homes plummet, their jobs vanish, their children and grandchildren’s future become precarious, they have seen this president destroy much of what they thought was gonna be their future. That’s why they care. And if anybody wants to come together on anything, it’s getting rid of all this and replacing with somebody and something that’s gonna return this country to one of growth and prosperity and freedom and economic opportunity, all of which are on the wane. Thank you.
RUSH: I don’t know about you, folks. It’s really tiresome to be constantly accused of spreading negativity about Obama. Has anybody forgotten the previous eight years of the Bush regime? You want to talk about negativity and anti-Americanism, there was a solid eight years of it from the Democrat Party and about a year and a half of it of Obama himself while he was campaigning.
