RUSH: James in Indiana, great to have you with us. You’re up first today. Hi.
CALLER: Thanks for taking my call.
CALLER: I have a question. I’m a pretty moderate Democrat, and I listen to your show as often as I can.
RUSH: Thank you —
CALLER: I respect your opinion.
RUSH: — very much.
CALLER: I see our politics today and our society coming to a crossroads politically. How do you see us bridging the gap between liberals and conservatives and actually getting something done?
RUSH: There’s no way of bridging the gap. I, after 23 years, have learned personally there’s no bridging the gap. By that I mean how do we get the two sides together?
CALLER: Not necessarily, but just enough, just close enough to get things done.
RUSH: Ain’t gonna happen.
CALLER: The president from my party is not doing anything, and I’m like we gotta do something —
RUSH: I’m just trying to be realistic with you here, it’s not possible to bridge a gap close enough with liberals to want to get things done, because the things they want to get done have literally nothing in common with what I want done. We have nothing in common. The Constitution is an obstacle to them; it’s the Bible to me. And I don’t know about you; I don’t compromise on the Bible.
RUSH: And I don’t compromise on the Constitution. So to me the solution to this is they must be beaten, politically, they must be beaten. And then you, as a moderate Democrat, have to learn that there’s no such thing as a moderate Democrat. If you’re a Democrat of any kind, you’re a Democrat. If you vote Democrat you’re voting liberal in any constitution, you have to be beaten, too.
