RUSH: We’re gonna start in Pittsburgh. This is Bob. It’s great to have you, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush. This is a pleasure for me to be able to speak to you today.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: You know, I’ve been a listener only since the days of Operation Chaos, and before that I was one of those hard-core Democrat union goons, but I’ve come a long way and have to thank you for that.
RUSH: Welcome home, sir. Welcome home.
CALLER: What I’m thinking about today is not… So the blood is in the water. Obama has been caught red-handed lying and doubling down. I’m thinking that maybe some of his other base groups are now gonna start to think, “Well, maybe I’ve been scammed and lied to as well.” You know, he lied to the unions bald-faced in 2008 about Card Check. He needed their votes. He’s lied to the greens. He’s lied to the LGBTs.
He’s lied to Israel about supporting them for no other reason than votes and support, and he thinks nothing about lying and doubling down on lying and deceit because it’s more or less inbred into him. He’s been raised, he’s been mentored, he’s been educated like that by people like Frank Marshall Davis and Derrick Bell, and it’s in his nature to lie just as it is yours to tell the truth. But I think that now maybe some of these other groups that he’s been scamming and taking advantage of or lying to over these last five years —
RUSH: I don’t think that’s gonna happen. I respectfully disagree. I don’t think he’s gonna do anything to upset his base here. His base is gonna support him because he lies. His base is gonna applaud him getting Obamacare passed with a lie. That’s kind of thing they love. The people here that are perhaps movable at some point are what I call the low-information crowd, the people that are not passionately political but to whom their health care really matters. I mean, it’s the most important thing in their life and they trusted the guy.
They voted for him.
They thought he was unique.
They thought he was a unifier!
They thought he was gonna bring people together, thought he was gonna fix problems. He’s lied to them. He’s destroyed the public trust. He told them they could keep their plans and he told them it was gonna be cheaper, and it’s none of that. It’s that group of people that he has broken this bond of trust with. No, his base is gonna applaud this. His base is gonna celebrate the fact he got this done by lying. That’s the kind of thing that makes them happy. His base is corrupt as he is. They’re never gonna abandon him.
It’s the low-information crowd here that’s at risk, and the media knows it.
RUSH: Okay. So look at this, folks. This is from The Daily Caller, and the headline: “Swing Voters Have Turned Against Obama, Says New Poll — A new poll shows that non-ideological swing voters have walked away from President Barack Obama, which could sharply reduce his political influence and power.” This is an Ed Goeas poll. You know, he’s half of the Battleground Poll with Celinda Lake, and he’s a good pollster. He did this poll with Brian Nienaber, and it’s a poll of 1,000 likely voters, 60% swing voters, unfavorable image of Obama. Thirty-six percent favorable. It is the George Washington University Battleground Poll released yesterday.
Swing voters, I don’t want to insult ’em here, but that’s what I’m talking about, low-information voters, the non-base. Obama’s base, I’m telling you, the Daily Kos kids, all these people out there, these Democrat Underground type sites, they’re applauding Obama lying. Whatever it takes to beat us. The fact that he told this big a lie and got away with it and got health care, that makes him a superhero to them. The more deceitful you get away with being, the bigger Obama is to his base, folks. Remember, they’re radicals. They’re irrational, off the wall, deadbeat radicals. He’s never gonna lose them. But there’s a reason he’s at 39%, and it’s these nonideological types that believed everything he said.
