RUSH: Linda in Lake City, Michigan. Glad you called. You’re up next. Hello.

CALLER: Hello, Mr. Limbaugh, quite a treat.

RUSH: Well. Well. Thank you.

CALLER: I was just thinking and wondering about this terminology that you used for the rest of the world watching what President Obama does, or, as you affectionately call him, Barack Hussein Obama, just to, you know, reinforce that imaginary Muslim thing —

RUSH: No, that’s not me. I mean, little kids were singing songs to President Obama: “Barack Hussein Obama! Mmm! Mmm! Mmm!” Don’t you remember?

CALLER: Well, I think it’s you, too. I think maybe you do it for a different reason.

RUSH: When was the last time I mentioned Hussein?

CALLER: Yeah, you just did about five minutes ago.

RUSH: It is his name. Why is it my problem what his name is?

CALLER: Well, because, I mean, when they used to call Dan Quayle “Danforth” Quayle, the conservatives were saying that they were making fun of him, that they were —

RUSH: This is a dangerous thing you’re doing.

CALLER: — kind of an uppity rich guy, Danforth —

RUSH: You’re engaging in projection. You are assuming to know what I’m thinking when I pronounce Barack Hussein Obama.

CALLER: Hussein. Well, like I say, it seems to me, anyway, that you’re just, you know, feeding into this imaginary thing that some conservatives out there —

RUSH: I’m not even thinking about it. It’s all in your mind. This is what’s fascinating. It’s in your mind that he’s a Muslim, not mine.

CALLER: No, I don’t think he’s a Muslim. I think you’re putting it out there every time you say that, Barack Hussein Obama.

RUSH: Is his middle name not Hussein?

CALLER: Say it again, sir?

RUSH: Is his middle name not Hussein?

CALLER: Yeah, it is.

RUSH: Okay, does he still have a brother living in a hut?

CALLER: I don’t know. (laughing)

RUSH: He does.

CALLER: I don’t know. What’s your middle name?

RUSH: Hudson.

CALLER: I don’t call you Rush George Limbaugh.

RUSH: No. But if you wanted to pronounce my name, it would be Rush Hudson Limbaugh III.

CALLER: Ooh, Hudson, very nice. But I just think that, you know, I have kind of a conservative coworker, and we talk politics every so often.

RUSH: You know one? You actually know a conservative?

CALLER: Yes, I do. I mean, I have conservative friends. That’s not my measuring stick for whether a person is a fine person or a good neighbor or anything like that.

RUSH: What is wrong with Hussein as a name, by the way?

CALLER: Well, like I say, the way I believe you’re using it is to imply that the president is this closet Muslim.

RUSH: No. Even if I thought that, I wouldn’t go there. My point with this picture, Linda, was to point out media hypocrisy. I mean, Bush reads to kids, all presidents do. Bush did it on 9/11 and the media tagged him immediately as an idiot, deer-in-the-headlight eyes, doesn’t know what he’s doing, vacant, stupid, idiotic cowboy. And here’s Obama reading to the kids while Ukraine’s violating all kinds of agreements Obama signed, and not a ripple from the Drive-Bys. That’s all I was pointing out with that. And as far as the name “Hussein” is concerned, I don’t know what I can do. I’ll ask him to change it.


RUSH: McCain fired Bill Cunningham. He was introducing him at rallies, Cunningham announced Barack Hussein Obama. (imitating McCain) “I’m not gonna have that kind of bigotry in my campaign. He’s gone. Get rid of him. Not gonna have that.” It was absurd, folks. It’s his name.
