RUSH: Michelle in Redlands, Florida, you’re next on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hello, Rush.
CALLER: I wanted call you today to tell you that I’ve been listening to you since 2006, and I just want to thank you and all the rich people for giving me the opportunity to come to this country with no education. And I’ve succeeded, and, Rush, I didn’t know that I could say it, but it hurts to say, that I hate this country. If I had known that it was going to be like this, as soon as I became educated, I’d just leave.
RUSH: Where did you grow up?
CALLER: I was born in Jamaica.
RUSH: Born in Jamaica, and in Jamaica you hated this country?
CALLER: No, no, no, since just recently. I hate what it has become, sir.
RUSH: Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh. You hate what the country has become. Okay. Okay. A lot of us do. A lot of us are really actively angry about this, Michelle. I am. I am actively angry. By that I mean I am sitting here today, I am mad.
CALLER: Rush, I want to thank you so much for all the rich people and all the rich people because all the poor people —
RUSH: Oh, this is what I like, the rich people being thanked. That’s the way it ought to be. I’m just kidding, folks, I’m just kidding. But I know what you mean, Michelle, I really do, and you have a level of understanding and appreciation because you did not know the kind of opportunity and plenty this country offers ’til you got here.
CALLER: Exactly, because I had no high school education. I have a college education. I have a degree that pays up to $60 an hour. I have a small business, and I had to put it on temporary because since 2009 I know that I’m not in business to minimize profit and maximize loss, because I want to hire people. I want to help this country that has helped me. And I’m just sick of it. I’m black, and I don’t even want to fail — I don’t know what is wrong with people in this country. They don’t realize what they have, and they’re gonna lose it.
RUSH: It’s our education system, Michelle. Our previous caller pretty much correctly identified that. Barack Obama’s a product of it. He’s been taught to resent and hate this country. Not just the education system, but his whole family, stuff he was exposed to. But you didn’t want to move to a Third World country when you moved here, right?
CALLER: Of course not, Rush. When I came here, I left school in ninth grade, which is part of our elementary system there. But I couldn’t afford to go to college, sir, and when I came here, I get Pell grant, and I was so happy. I came here and went to the library. I was so glad to see books, because in my country I couldn’t afford it.
RUSH: What do you specifically hate about what’s happening in America now?
CALLER: Rush, put it this way. I’m tired of the garbage. I’m afraid of the Republican more than the Democrats. Because at least the Democrats know what they want and they’re doing it. The Republican are doing it behind the scene, and, in other words, I can see the Democrats coming, but I can’t see them, and I think they are even more dangerous than Barack Obama.
RUSH: Okay, I need to translate this. Look, I know exactly what you mean. What she means is, she knows what the Democrats are about. She can see ’em coming. She doesn’t see the Republicans standing up for her. She doesn’t see the Republicans trying to stop it. That’s what she’s saying. So she’s in Redlands, Florida. Michelle, thanks for the call. I sincerely — let me, you know what, are you still there, Michelle?
CALLER: And no one in the black community said this man has achieved so much, and, you know what, Rush?
CALLER: Mr. Rush, if I could give birth to one million Herman Cain, it would solve some of the problem in this country, and thank you for listening, sir. And you have a good day and —
RUSH: Wait a minute, you could probably do that if you met him!
CALLER: Well, you know what, Rush, I’m not even gonna go there, you know, because at least he’s — at least he’s — maybe I don’t know if that’s what’s going on, we were told that, nobody knows what’s going on.
RUSH: I know, look, there’s no evidence of it, that’s the shame about it, there’s literally no evidence that any of these allegations against Herman Cain are true.
CALLER: Exactly, sir, and I don’t have time to pick sense of the nonsense, because I’m smarter than that. I don’t need to go to Harvard or Yale, and, Rush, if these people know it so much, why are we in this mess that we’re in? If they were the smartest since peanut butter, if they’re the best thing since peanut butter, why are we in this mess?
RUSH: Yeah, I know. You’re asking the questions that countless millions of Americans are asking, and that’s why they think it’s a stacked deck. Which is also what you’re saying. Michelle, look, it’s Christmastime and I have so many gifts here to give away and I’m doing it randomly, and you just seem like a great candidate. Do you have an iPad?
CALLER: No, sir. I’ve never had an iPad.
RUSH: Do you have a computer?
CALLER: Yes, I do.
RUSH: What kind of computer?
CALLER: It’s a Dell, which is like a desktop, and that’s the one I have.
RUSH: Okay. So you got a computer. Well, I’m gonna send you an engraved EIB Rush Limbaugh signature engraved iPad.
CALLER: Oh, my goodness. Thank you so much, sir. And you have a Merry Christmas.
RUSH: You will love this. It’ll work with your Dell. You need to have iTunes to use it, I’m sure you do, it’s a snap. You’re smart. You can figure it out. So hang on. Mr. Snerdley will get the address that we need to send it to.
