RUSH: Tim in Santa Barbara, California, great to have you, sir. Hi.
CALLER: Hello, Rush! Yeah, the president, Barack Hussein Obama, is a great apologist for the United States of America for our greatness but he wouldn’t admit any time he’s made a mistake. The closest he came is when he admitted that his party got shellacked in 2010. And because he won’t admit it, Romney’s going to possibly kill him in this election, but Barack… (garbled)
RUSH: What is this big deal about admitting mistakes? I remember a press conference George W. Bush had. I forget which term. The whole press conference, the media asked, “Have you made any mistakes? Is there anything you think you’ve done wrong?” and he wouldn’t bite. He wouldn’t.
RUSH: Because he knew if he admitted that he made a mistake, that’s all they would report, and they’d harp on it for months. Why do you want Obama to admit that he’s made a mistake?
CALLER: The sign of true character is a humble person who can admit —
RUSH: Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh.
CALLER: — “I had a mistake somewhere,” and he won’t do it.
CALLER: There is no humility in the gentleman.
RUSH: There’s no humility about him.
CALLER: And that’s a stretch calling him a gentleman.
RUSH: Look, we’re dealing here… There’s a word for somebody who thinks that everything that goes wrong is just not his fault, it’s yours. There’s a word for somebody who has no conscience, who has no sense of responsibility for anything. There’s a word for this. It’s “sociopath,” and they are typified by people who blame everybody else for what’s gone wrong. They ever blame themselves. They never accept responsibility for anything — and not only they didn’t do it wrong, you did. It’s always you or somebody else. So that’s why Obama admitting a mistake? (chuckles) I mean that’s it. He’s never done anything wrong his whole life. He’s never had anybody tell him he did anything wrong his whole life! And that’s it. America’s the one that’s made the mistakes. The Founders made the mistakes. Bush made the mistakes. Obama hasn’t done anything wrong. What are you talking about?
