RUSH: Johnstown, Ohio. Hi, Jack. You’re next. Welcome to the show.
CALLER: Thank you for taking my call, Rush.
RUSH: You bet.
CALLER: Longtime listener. I think Donald Trump, they’re setting him up to be Barack Obama’s ace-in-the-hole.
RUSH: Tell me how.
CALLER: The reason why is right after John Boehner in the House passed the Cut, Cap, and Balance bill, I was surfing the radio and I found him on a liberal radio station saying how
bad that bill was and how John Boehner and them were going to get laughed at when they got back and how Nancy Pelosi was very, very smart. Well, anybody saying Nancy Pelosi’s very, very smart is a brain-dead Democrat anyhow. But the other thing is like Ross Perot was to Bill Clinton. He got in the race, he was winning, he dropped out; then he come back in to lose credibility. He took enough votes away from George Bush that Bill Clinton got elected. Donald Trump jumped in, he was doing good in the polls. He made up an excuse about the TV station wanted him out so he dropped out. Now he keeps saying if Republicans don’t put the right nominee up that he’s gonna run independent.
CALLER: What’s that gonna do? That’s gonna take votes from the Republican.
RUSH: I know he’s saying that, but I’m gonna talk to him about that. He’s been doing a lot of media lately. (interruption) No, I’m gonna talk to him before the golf course. His course down here doesn’t open back up ’til October. I’m gonna talk to him before then. But he’s been doing a lot of media lately. He goes in cycles on this stuff, and he’s ripping into Obama here, and he is floating the idea that if the Republicans don’t nominate the right guy he’s gonna run. Maybe get back into it again. This independent business is third-party. That’s death. You’re absolutely right. Your instincts on that are right on the money. I’m not convinced that Trump is going to do that, even though he’s said so.
RUSH: Another caller literally dazzled with the reply into sheer silence! You know, Trump, who knows what he wants? He may be angling for Treasury secretary. He’d be a hoot! Can you imagine Trump dealing with the ChiComs?
