RUSH: Here’s John in Orlando, Florida, as we head back to the phones on Open Line Friday. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Hi. Been a long time.
RUSH: Well, welcome back. Welcome, period.
CALLER: I got a funny story. When you were giving away ties on your TV show, I set up my camera, and it didn’t work. I sent it out to get fixed and I never saw it again. But anyway, back to the thing, I was working when Obama was elected. And when my boss and all his friends —
RUSH: Wait a second. Let me ask you, you’re not working now, but you were working when Obama was elected?
RUSH: Did you quit, or were you laid off.
CALLER: Well, he got elected, and that April my wife died and I never worked again. That’s beside the point.
RUSH: Wow. Sorry to hear that.
CALLER: Yeah, I left work because of that, but —
CALLER: — he never took me back because him and all his friends, they were rich jewelry manufacturers. They knew what Obama, Pelosi, and Reid were gonna do with this economy, and they were scared to death.
CALLER: And they said, we’re never gonna be as big as we were before. And they all quit hiring. It wasn’t the economy that did it. These people are scared.
RUSH: Well, but then it was the economy. I mean they were scared what was gonna happen to ’em. Wait a minute, you said jewelry manufacturers?
RUSH: Yeah, okay. Whew.
CALLER: You were right when you wanted Obama to fail.
RUSH: Whew, boy.
CALLER: We wanted him to fail, too.
RUSH: Thank God.
CALLER: Because they knew what he was gonna do, and he’s done everything he said he was gonna do.
CALLER: He was gonna transform this country.
RUSH: ‘kin’ A.
CALLER: And he is transforming this country, and it’s a place nobody likes. You know, I’m just proud to be here in Florida. I’m only a few hundred miles away from you.
CALLER: But I’m here with my grandchildren, so I’m happy.
RUSH: Well, you know, that’s what it really gets down to: family.
RUSH: If you’re happy with your grandchildren, that’s great.
CALLER: That’s it. Nice to be here.
RUSH: Well, thanks for calling out there, John. I really appreciate it.
CALLER: All right.
RUSH: All right, I’m sorry you lost your camera. I can’t explain that. He took a picture during a TV show. Everybody on TV needs a signature. Mine was my ties. Anything I could do to distract people away from my face. So I had these loud, colorful ties, ended up being so popular, we sold them. No Boundary ties. And apparently John liked ’em and took some pictures, and he sent the camera away, and the inference here is that whoever got his camera liked the pictures so much, just kept his camera. Well, he said it needed to be fixed, didn’t he? He said his camera needed to be fixed. See, Snerdley, you would just go buy a new camera. You can’t relate to somebody who would need something fixed. YouÂ’d just buy a new one. That’s where you lost track with this guy.
