RUSH: Peter in York, Pennsylvania. I’m glad you called, sir. Welcome to the program.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. It’s nice to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much.
CALLER: I called you three times, and I’ve gotten through to you three times. Must be magical between you and I. I’m very concerned, Rush. First of all, you’re always right, and I really don’t like that. It’s like you’re in my head sometimes when you say things. But you said something that everybody should listen to and remember. We have a president who does not care about the law.
This country has faced many, many evil things over the years, but right now the next two years are gonna be very dangerous, Rush. ‘Cause this man will do anything to further his agenda. He will do anything to make this country a second-rate country. I’ve listened to him. I’ve even tried to like him. But I just can’t, and I don’t trust him at all. You’re absolutely correct. He’s a dangerous individual, and he’s much more dangerous, I think, than the Republicans realize.
RUSH: Oh, I think he’s more dangerous than most people realize. I don’t think people — and you can’t blame ’em — I don’t think very many people stop to think about how precariously balanced America is every day anyway. Think about something. We were founded over 200-plus years ago, and when you get down to brass tacks, this is the first man who has attempted to pretend the Constitution isn’t there. The precarious balance can be called the honor system. We have a Constitution. For all of these years it has been respected as though it is a rock, it is unalterable.
Now, there are people that don’t like it, and they’ve blown through it, the Second Amendment types, and we know the battles that have been fought, but we’ve never had somebody pretend it isn’t there. The Constitution itself has always been the backstop. How precarious a balance is that for a country? There are constitutional remedies if somebody does what Obama does, but the Republican Party’s taken them off the table. So the only thing that keeps the Constitution relevant and meaningful is Barack Obama’s willingness to honor it. And if he chooses not to, then what? And that’s what he’s demonstrated that he’s perfectly willing to do. He’s already done that. He’s promising to continue.
