RUSH: St. Louis, this is Joe, great to have you on the Rush Limbaugh program, sir. Hi.
CALLER: You know, Rush, I remember a long time ago when there was one lone voice —
CALLER: — one single voice out there in the wilderness screaming, ‘I hope he fails.’ And Newt and Lindsey and Keith Olbermann, that lone voice was the most hated, worst person in the entire planet for hoping now that the president was going to fail at his agenda. Now he succeeded in just about everything he set out to do. Have any of those people bothered to call and say, ‘Gee, you know what, maybe you were right’?
RUSH: Uh, no. Don’t look for it to happen. It won’t happen. I appreciate your comment, but you really had an interesting way of putting this. He has succeeded. And all these people, when I said, ‘I hope he fails,’ ‘Oh, no, no, no, we all want the president to succeed. Every American should want the president to succeed.’ Really? This guy has succeeded in a year and a half with his agenda and it’s destroying the country.
CALLER: Actually what you meant when you said that, you’re absolutely right. If he succeeds at what he wants to do, he’s going to destroy our country as we know it.
CALLER: And that poor lady and that guy at that town hall meeting, which is amazing that they got into a CNBC town hall meeting anyway because you know they’re supporters, have they seen the light? Are they happy with the things that the president has succeeded in doing to us and our country, and our image? You know, people were going to love us. The Muslim world was going to love us. Everyone was going to love us. Well, you can see what that got us. I just wonder if you’re gonna hear from anybody.
RUSH: No, no, no, no. The people you’re talking about essentially pretend I don’t exist. That’s how I’m dealt with.
