RUSH: Here’s Patricia in Golden, Colorado. Glad to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. Just calling to tell you that while our illustrious leader was at a fundraiser and busy this weekend in California going to a college speech, he and his wife were also out in Rancho Mirage, an area that I know you’re familiar with —
CALLER: — looking for a house. They’re looking for a little nest out in Palm Springs.
RUSH: Well, now, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait a minute. Now, I know Obama has become very enamored of the place. You know where he likes? He loves the Annenberg estate.
CALLER: Well, he played golf there this weekend.
RUSH: What’s the name of the club there?
CALLER: Well, it’s just Annenberg, and then Larry Ellison owns Porcupine Creek. Both private courses you can’t get on unless you have someone that you know.
RUSH: Right. Right. But when Annenberg was alive, that’s where Reagan and Sinatra and all these guys went for New Year’s Eve.
CALLER: Everyone went there. All the presidents have been there since the 1960s when he and his wife built it.
CALLER: They have not excluded anybody. But Obama has been there several times in the past year, and now his wife, the decorator, Michael Smith, who’s done the White House —
CALLER: — has joined a club that will remain unnamed at this point, in Rancho Mirage, and she and Michael spent the weekend looking for homes.
RUSH: Wait a minute, now. We just heard that Moochelle bought a place or was looking at a place in North Carolina to run for the Senate from there.
CALLER: Well, she may be, but they’re also, as far as I know on good stand, having a place being built right now in Hawaii, and this weekend they absolutely definitely were looking for a home in Rancho Mirage.
RUSH: Well, I hadn’t heard that. Now, I have heard —
CALLER: Trust me.
RUSH: No, no, no. I’m not challenging you. I have heard that they’re enamored of Palm Springs. I’ve heard that the Obamas love it, which, Jeremiah Wright’s not gonna be pleased. Palm Springs is not the kind of place that a disciple of Reverend Wright’s would love. It’s too white. It’s too rich. Maybe it’s not common knowledge. I thought it was common knowledge that Moochelle was looking for places in North Carolina, to buy a house in North Carolina to maybe run for the Senate from there. (interruption) You hadn’t heard that? Well, I heard it. (interruption) That she’s Mrs. Barack Obama. She gonna run on social justice and making things fair and getting the… (interruption) Hillary, yeah. Hillary didn’t live in New York, either.
I heard Obama was gonna stay in Washington. I did not know they’re building a place in Hawaii. I can’t believe they’re using their own money for any of this, but that’s just me. The real question is: Where is the Barack Obama Presidential Library for Social Justice gonna be? Would it be in Rancho Mirage? Would it be in Washington? Would it be in Hawaii? Not Hawaii. Well, there might be a branch office there.
