RUSH: Here is Tom in Sandusky, Ohio. Tom, great to have you with us, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, it’s great to be with you again, too. I’ve spoken to you a couple of times, but, you know, I was reading how the media was coming out with their long knives against Woodward, and it occurred to me, you know, here’s a guy that comes out and speaks the truth, and all of a sudden, “Oh, my God, you know, what has happened?” And their sacred cow, the liberals, all of a sudden turned against him. My question is, in this kind of environment, how do you get the truth through to the low-information voter? It doesn’t seem like we have a chance. But then I thought again to myself, you know, maybe the best thing to do is we need more bomb throwers like Woodward and Ted Cruz from Texas. You know, just keep hitting ’em with this stuff. Keep putting ’em on the defensive whether it’s true or not, because that’s their tactic. I mean, that’s a Dingy Harry tactic of he hasn’t paid taxes in ten years or something like that, talking about Romney and all the lies that they told about him.
CALLER: We gotta start doing the same things they’re doing. Fight fire with fire, make innuendos, make statements.
RUSH: Now, Tom, I had a story, I didn’t use it. I had a story last week that had 25 absolutely horrible things that have happened in this country in the last 75 years all done by Democrats that they were never blamed for. Things that really hurt the country, things that hurt people, and they never got blamed for it. So if you say, okay, they’re gonna say Romney didn’t pay his taxes in ten years, then we go out and lie about Harry Reid, say he didn’t pay his taxes in ten years. The battle’s bigger than that because where the American people are right now, they believe the lies told about Republicans. Whatever the truth is about the Democrats, they don’t care.
And you know why? They think that the Democrats care about people and that the Republicans don’t. It may be a little more involved than that, but when you strip it all away, there’s a reason why stuff doesn’t stick to the Democrats. Now, you might say it’s branding, it’s marketing, it’s they can’t do anything wrong because they never intend to. They really love people. They’re the ones trying to help people, and the Republicans don’t care about anybody but the rich. The Republicans don’t care. Tom, all we can do is to just keep pounding the truth. You just keep pounding it. Eventually the truth will out. Now, a lot of people don’t have faith in that. I happen to, but it takes time and it’s not universal. It doesn’t happen with every instance.
