RUSH: Here’s Julie in Kettering, Ohio. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi. How are you? I’m so honored to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: This is like a dream come true. This is my lucky day.
RUSH: Well, thank you. I appreciate that.
CALLER: Well, not only do I get to talk to you, but I did get to see Mitt Romney for the second time here in Ohio today. And I just wanted to make sure that the media doesn’t try and play this that he was campaigning today, because he was not. He was here in Kettering, Ohio, and he was meant to make a campaign stop, but he changed it into more of a rally to help the devastation that has occurred on the East Coast. So everybody was required to bring like a food item of some sort. I brought a couple bags in. Everything was so orderly. There was about 2,500 to 3,000 people there.
RUSH: What, did you have to have a food item to be admitted?
CALLER: No, you did not. They asked you to bring one, so I guess I shouldn’ta said required. They just would have liked you to have brought a food item. And then when you went in, Mitt Romney, he didn’t even take the main stage. More people were focused on the main stage, but he appeared off to the side in front of all the tables that were holding all of the food that people had donated, and I took pictures, and there was so much food there. He stood up and spoke for about ten minutes and just talked about how Americans come together in a time of crisis when other Americans are hurting. He did not campaign at all.
RUSH: He really didn’t campaign? (laughing)
CALLER: No, I mean, I saw him in Lebanon earlier this year, and the things that come out of his mouth are so positive.
CALLER: When I saw him in Lebanon before any of this happened, he didn’t put down Obama or blast Obama. He just spoke from his heart and he spoke about the American dream and how Americans can come back. And that’s what he did today, but he did it in a way of thanking us —
RUSH: Well, that’s true, he is uplifting. He is trying to be positive and inclusive and inspiring, there’s no question about that. Well, glad for the on-the-spot report, Julie. Thanks very much. I appreciate it. She feels good about having been there. It was an uplifting thing. That’s great. I appreciate the call.
