RUSH: Here is Jerry in Wilmington, Delaware. Jerry, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Hi. This is a thrill. Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: You bet, sir.
CALLER: Listen, let me tell you first why I love your show. I mean your political satire is genius. I mean Driving Miss Daisy, I mean it’s just brilliant.
CALLER: I mean I just drive around listening to you sometimes and I laugh, you know, but sometimes I listen to, like Driving Miss Daisy, I say, that’s absolutely brilliant.
RUSH: Thank you very much. Driving Miss Nancy, yes.
CALLER: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, listen. My wife and I were watching Mitt Romney on TV the other night, and she’s a big lib. I mean a really big lib. In fact, she holds group meetings like six, eight, ten women, they’re all liberals, and they sit around and complain about men and talk politics. And after watching Mitt Romney that night she said, ‘You know, I might consider voting for him.’ And I was floored. I don’t think women are enamored with him as much anymore, and if I can tell you my ex-senator — and I think I know the reason why he lost the women vote a couple months ago, and if I can use a quote from my ex-senator, Joe Biden, I’d love to explain that, please, if you don’t mind. Basically Joe Biden, remember when he said Obama looks good, he sounds good, you know, he’s clean, he smells good, you know, and he promised women the moon if they gave him your vote. So I think what happened was once they gave him a piece of their vote, you know, then things changed, he didn’t call ’em anymore. And I think that’s probably why they’re not enamored with him as much anymore and why he’s vulnerable, and Republicans shouldn’t be afraid to vote against him.
RUSH: Look, I agree there ought not be any fear of Obama. So your wife gaggles the hens and they get together, six to eight of them and they’re turning away from Obama, going to Mitt?
CALLER: Well, she mentioned it, you know, she mentioned it not at that particular meeting, but at the end of watching him on TV and I was almost floored, you know, like —
RUSH: What do they like about Mitt?
CALLER: She liked, as she said, you know, promises, I don’t —
RUSH: You want to know what the answer is? I’ll give you the answer.
CALLER: She wants efficiency, basically.
RUSH: No. There’s a 14-inch part in his hair.
RUSH: He’s got TV anchor hair.
RUSH: You cannot be an anchor on television unless you have a 14-inch part in that hair.
CALLER: No, I don’t think that was the main reason, but are you saying that you are not a big Romney fan, or you don’t think he can win, or —
RUSH: No, no, no, no, no. I’m not talking about my impersonation of Romney at all.
CALLER: Hm-hm. But, anyway, no, I think she basically, like a lot of people, you know —
RUSH: Obviously your wife thinks Romney will call her the next day whereas Obama hasn’t.
CALLER: Right. Or at least will be effective and efficient —
CALLER: In fact, instead of hope and change, he should have a poster, ‘Boring but efficient.’ I don’t know. That’s what he should promote.
RUSH: Are you allowed to attend these gatherings when your wife and the other gals get together?
CALLER: Most of the time I go to the movies or go bowling, but to be quite honest one night I was home and I went in the kitchen and got a drink of water, and they know I listen to you and Hannity, and they attacked me one night. ‘Oh, how can you be a Republican?’ And, ‘How can you listen to those guys?’
RUSH: So they’re in the kitchen?
CALLER: No, they’re in the living room, and I went in the kitchen to get a drink of water one night, and they just went after me, you know, ’cause they knew I was Republican and —
RUSH: And one of them is your wife?
CALLER: Right. Right. It’s a little tough, especially around Valentine’s Day.
CALLER: It’s a little hard to buy a Valentine’s card for her to be quite honest.
RUSH: I can totally imagine. Totally imagine.
CALLER: Yeah, I know. I was gonna assume your wife, does she follow your beliefs, too?
RUSH: Well, you know, that is why we have ProFlowers.
RUSH: You ever thought of it?
CALLER: Yeah, but like I said…
RUSH: You’re gonna need it, pal, after today.
CALLER: Well, she doesn’t listen.
RUSH: You’re calling from Wilmington, Delaware, she’s gonna hear about it.
CALLER: You think?
RUSH: Oh, there’s no question. The tentacles of this program reach deep. I mean, your wife’s gonna hear about this.
CALLER: Yeah, like I said, every Valentine’s Day, I bought her candy but, you know, flowers. She’s been laughing at me since Obama got elected which, you know, I didn’t laugh at her for eight years when Bush was elected.
RUSH: Oh, really? You know what? Ask her, does she feel like laughing at all people that lost their jobs and are losing their homes and can’t pay gasoline prices approaching four bucks? Ask her how much fun is all this? I mean if you really, really want to get down and dirty, she’s having all kinds of fun laughing at the fact Obama wins. Ask her if she digs all this, how much laughter is she getting over the circumstances in the country these days?
CALLER: That’s a good point.
RUSH: Ask her how she feels about Gitmo staying open. For all her talk about me, tell her Limbaugh was right about that, he said Gitmo was never gonna close.
CALLER: That’s a good point.
CALLER: But listen, I’ve always wanted to get on and hadn’t had a chance. Can I just mention a quick Joe Biden point if you don’t mind?
RUSH: A Joe Biden point?
CALLER: Yeah. Anyway, you know, the —
RUSH: I thought you did, but have at it.
CALLER: All right. Well, here’s a different one. The media is saying he’s average Joe from Wilmington. The media never told you he didn’t even live in Wilmington. He lives in Greenville. It’s the Aspen of Delaware, all the movers and shakers, and he’s got a $3 million estate. You want to know who one of his neighbors is?
RUSH: John Edwards.
CALLER: Average Joe DuPont. For years I’ve been trying to scream that out.
RUSH: Yeah, average Joe DuPont. Right, right, right, right, right. Well, interesting.
CALLER: It’s hard living with a liberal woman when you’re conservative.
RUSH: Oh, I know. I know. Ask your wife if women have to pay higher taxes if they have children and so forth. She’s prepared to laugh at the future her own kids have. (laughing) Snerdley says if you ask her every question that I have given you, Valentine’s Day or not, you are effectively frozen out.
